Meet My 32nd Novel!

Hello everyone!

I'm pleased to say my room has been repaired. It's so nice to be back!!

Anyway, I also finished JOYLAND, my middle grade fantasy novel last week. So, without further ado, meet my 32nd novel...


It's adult romance. I had such a good time writing THE LOVE CURSE back in January that I wanted to try the genre again!

Here's the synopsis (so far):

“Beneath the city of Toronto lies a secret, magical kingdom called Fairhaven—one Princess Esme finds dreadfully dull. She spends her days pulling pranks and ruining parties, much to her father, King Tedros’s dismay. When she sabotages a ball he had been working on for a year, he finally takes the advice of the other families and kicks her out of Fairhaven to teach her a lesson.

Esme can return one day, but only if she follows a strict list her father has written. She must overcome her spoiled, disobedient ways and help people, live on her own, and overcome her selfishness, among other goals. When she meets Noah Crawford, a humanitarian who works for a global organization, she thinks she’s hit the jackpot. She plans to use him and work for his organization to convince her father she’s changed.

But things don’t always go according to plan. Soon, she discovers one of the families from Fairhaven wants to bring magic to Earth to rule over it, her boss at the humanitarian organization doesn’t have the purest intentions, and old friends have wicked intentions for Fairhaven in her absence. On top of all that, she begins falling for Noah—and must decide if she ever wants to return to Fairhaven or if she’s found a modern fairytale in the real world.”

So excited to write it! I'm not going to officially join #CampNaNoWriMo as I'm sure I won't finish this novel until early May, but I'll still be writing every day.

Thanks for reading!
