Dear Reader,
 

      Although I have been living in England for most of my life, I was born in Canada and visit what I like to think of as my 'Homeland' very often. My love of writing started at a young age and I wrote my first official poem at the age of nine. From then on until I turned fifteen, I entered multiple competitions through YoungWriters who published three of my poems and two mini-sagas. 

 

      I have faced depression and self-harm in the past; I think that is why much of my work (especially my poetry) is dark and rather gothic. The poems I wrote were my way of screaming back at the world and sometimes I feel it is good to share. When I share my words with others, it feels like I am sharing part of my soul - part of who I am.

 

      My fictional story interests are mostly fantasy, greek mythology and horror/thriller. I enjoy a good book about vampires or witches or even Goddesses (I admit my most recent indulgence is the Goddess Summoning novels written by P.C Cast). 
My poetic inspiration is definitely Tim Burton's 'The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy' and I also enjoy sketching anything from mysterious mermaids to beautiful fallen angels. 

 

     Now at the age of eighteen I finally managed to finish a story of my own (after nearly three years of abandoning this idea) and I have finally published my debut novel, Reflections of Darkness on Kindle. I have plans to write a prequel to this story called Shattered Remains.

 

I hope you enjoy reading my work as much as I did writing it.

Novel: Reflections of Darkness

Cover edited and designed by myself.
 

Novel Summary:
 

When Ashley Bennett and her brother are sent to live with their aunt, all hell breaks loose – literally.

Ash is determined to solve the mystery of her mother’s tragic death... could the strange, mysterious and hauntingly beautiful boy she befriends have the answers?

A chilling tale of a promise to a stranger, a mesmerising music box  and broken mirrors.

 

“ I crossed the room to the mirror and stared at a long, jagged crack that ran from the impact point to the bottom left corner. I raised a hand and traced the pattern, wondering why my mother had broken the beautiful mirror.”

Genre: Paranormal/Horror

Status: Completed

 

What People Have Said:

 

"You write so well and so free from distraction that you bring the story to life, almost like watching a movie. What isn't described, I can fill in with my imagination... I will certainly be back to read more later. I am so glad that I came to visit..."

"This is so easy to read. The story just plays out in my head so naturally. I could just about smell the breakfast toast, and could feel Sarah's pain as she was bullied. That kind of thing never happened to me. I can't imagine what it would be like going to school every day and having to deal with vicious bullies. I like the way the chapter begins with what seems to be a normal family morning, and ends with a gripping climax. This promises to be a very good novel and I am looking forward to reading more…"

"The forest was enchanting and I loved the way you brought it to life with your descriptive words. As for the story! Wow! Intriguing and spooky! I wonder what evil this wooden music box holds? I'm hooked! you are a wonderful writer my friend! cant wait to read on..."

"You're a very talented writer my friend. The story is totally compelling and it flows nicely... The scene in the kitchen was truly frightening and well written. The first chapter reminded me of a dark fairy tale and I love this whole musical box thing going on too. Alluring and evil. Absolutely loving the read! Can't wait for the next riveting instalment ..."

Novel: Shattered Remains

Cover edited and designed by myself.
 

Novel Summary:
 

Sarah Rider made a promise. How will she cope when her best friend turns on her and reveals to be a demon from the Otherworld? When nobody else believes that her imaginary friend murdered her mother, Sarah is sent to the Institute. The doctors say that she is crazy....
The demon is laughing now, and she is in no position to stop him.

 

" 'She needs another jolt I think,' the calm, monotone voice drawled, 'up the voltage by another one hundred amps.' my eyes flew wide as I realised what he meant.
'No!' I gasped desperately, 'I-I'll be good!' a nurse took advantage of my open mouth and shoved a rubber plug between my teeth. It touched the back of my tongue and made me gag momentarily before I heard dials clicking into position behind me somewhere.

I squeezed my eyes shut, anticipating the pain to come. "


Genre: Paranormal/Horror

Status: Incomplete

 

What People Have Said:

 

"This novel is off to a good start Medea. You make ordinary everyday events seem so real, with just a hint of mystery and the drama to come - enough to keep most readers wanting more."

- Fernglow

Reading Requests:

I will try to look into reading requests whenever I have time - usually I will read the first chapter (or a specific chapter if you ask me to) and make a comment giving critical feedback. 

 

Note that I am honest about what I think and I will give negative feedback as well as positive. You do not need to take my suggestions on board, but by asking me to read your work you are inviting my opinion. 

 

I look forward to reading your work and I love finding great stories; my favourite genres are Thrillers, Horror, Crime, Comedy and sometimes a bit of Romance as long as it isn't cheesy.
