Blurb for Ellie, Everlasting:
What would you do if you discovered your favourite fairy tale was based on reality?
During the last year of high school, an unexpected tragedy tears Ellie Parker away from her family, and her girlfriend, Olivia. While the survivors struggle to cope with the trauma of losing someone so young and full of promise, Ellie finds herself wrapped up in the adventure of a lifetime… on the other side of the grave.
Neverland is real.
Peter Pan is real.
The Lost Boys and Girls are real.
But something sinister lurks in the shadows, threatening both worlds. Will Ellie and her new friends be able to save Earth and Neverland before it’s too late?
The first few sentences of the Prologue…
Hi! In November I was doing NaNoWriMo! Although I didn’t get to the 50,000 word count. I wrote 36,260 words and it’s the longest story I’ve ever written and I’m still writing!
I’m proud of that 🥰😍
I’m sooo behind! Just reached 25k today so that’s pretty good. My story’s title has been changed to ‘Ellie, Everlasting’.
I haven’t seen you for months.
Today when I saw you,
with your warm blue
eyes and sandy blonde
hair, I almost died inside.
Love pulsed through
my veins, but I turned
my back before it showed.
When you gave
me your number
8 months ago, I
hope my shaking
hands didn’t give
He only talks to me when
I talk to him and I quite
frankly, I am sick of it.
If he is not going
to make any effort,
then I’m not waiting
around for him to
get his shit together.
When Lyla died something in him broke;
He just wasn’t sure if it was his heart, his rib cage, his soul or all of the above.
The couple met on an aeroplane,
Lyla fell asleep on his shoulder
while he smiled at the beautiful stranger,
who he would soon adore.
When she awoke
her blushed cheeks spoke
more than she did.
with a whisp of a smile,
how shy she was
that fateful day…
The next ‘Insight’ is of my first self-published novelette/short story book ‘The Girl With The Purple Hair’.
I originally posted ‘The Girl With The Purple Hair’ on Wattpad on the 6th of November, 2016. (https://www.wattpad.com/story/89294422-the-girl-with-the-purple-hair-✔%EF%B8%8F). I wanted to see if people would read my story and surprisingly, as of today, 15th October, 2018, it has about 68,800 views and 14,580 votes.
I self-published it on Lulu.com in May, 2018.
The Girl With The Purple Hair is about a 17/18 year old shy mute girl called Violette, who has dyed her hair purple (obviously 🙄 😂 ) and a sensitive 18/19 year old boy, Benny, who’s falling for Violette more than ever.
Violette and Benny have known each other for about eight years and have been friends ever since. When she starts getting bullied, Benny quickly sticks up for her and is furious when people start attacking her and he tries everything he can to protect his girlfriend.
Violette decides she is ready to learn to speak again and invites Benny to go to speech therapy with her. This is a story of healing and over coming toxic people in the form of bullies.

I’m writing a spin-off (or something) of Peter Pan where an 18 year old dies and is sent to Neverland. Peter is assigned to new comers and shows her this seemingly perfect place. This story is set in 2019, 115 years after he met Wendy. He still thinks about her a lot, but when Ellie turns up, he realises he’s not thinking about Wendy anymore…
