Back Cover Copy

Feyland is the most immersive computer game ever designed, and Jennet Carter is the first to play the prototype. But she doesn’t suspect the virtual world is close enough to touch — or that she’ll be battling for her life against the Dark Queen of the faeries.

Tam Linn is the perfect hero — in-game. Too bad the rest of his life is seriously flawed. The last thing he needs is rich-girl Jennet prying into his secrets, insisting he’s the only one who can help her.

Together, Jennet and Tam enter the Dark Realm of Feyland, only to discover that the entire human world is in danger. Pushed to the limit of their abilities, they must defeat the Dark Queen… before it’s too late.


How did you get the idea for your book?

Too much time playing MMO games, and a head stuffed with fairytales.

What’s the main theme or lesson of your story?

Strength comes from trust, and reaching out.

Does your book have a unique setting?

My FEYLAND books are portal fantasy, where teen gamers go from a near-future world into the treacherous and magical Realm of Faerie.

Why did you choose to write Young Adult fiction?

I wanted to write positive girl-gamer role models for my twelve-year-old daughter! Plus I’ve always loved reading YA.
