Summary

I'm an author, editor and artist. I write real magic - fantasy and magical realism stories with the power to transform - and I make masks and steampunk accessories which can be purchased from my Tahlias Masks shop on Etsy.

  • About

    My stories mix fantasy, reality, action and romance into transrealist genre-bending experiences. Several of my books have won mutliple awards, so you can be sure they're great reads.

    My visionary novels bring you a lot more than just a great story; they show you how you can use the power of your mind to handle even the worst of life's challenges, and in some places - if you're open - can even help you experience peace and clarity directly.

    My masks are your noble self revealed, that secret, wise and powerful self that resides at your core, and my steampunk hats and accessories are a celebration of the steampunk aesthetic.
