Goodreads Link:

Cynric, King of Demelza, is haunted by his past. In an effort to escape it, he wields a powerful sword, commanding his dragon lizards and a malevolent thylacine, to wreak havoc throughout the realm. Villages are burning and innocent creatures are dying.

Erik and Emma, two young marsupials, and Devon, an orphaned red fox, are on their own personal quests; two to save a life, one to destroy another. When their paths cross, these natural enemies forge an unusual friendship. Soon they hear of the devastation caused by the evil king and they realize that their personal objectives must be put aside. Even though that decision will affect their own lives, and the lives of the ones they love, they are determined to help their fellow creatures. They put themselves at risk by joining a motley crew of animals, whose main objective is to end the reign of King Cynric.

A final battle will take place in the shadow of Fortress Demelza as the king’s forces clash with this rag tag band of creatures from the countryside. The fate of Sunderland and its inhabitants is at stake.

I am the author of the The Sword of Demelza, a Writer's Digest Award winning middle grade fantasy. I have always loved to read fantasy. Now I love to write fantasy. I take much of my inspiration from Brian Jacques’ Redwall Series, The Mismantle Chronicles, by M.I. McAllister, and The Red Wolf Conspiracies, by Robert Redick, just to name a few. I am an avid student of all things Australian, and this love of Australia, and its wildlife, has flowed into my first book, which will lead to the second. I provide a glossary for my young readers so they will become familiar with the unusual flora a fauna found with the pages.
