On the surface Alena has a wonderful life – she’s a bubbly, vivacious
20 year old woman enjoying university with bestie, Becca, her quirky
Californian housemate and Phillip, her amazing boyfriend. But beneath
all that happiness there is pain, a despairing sorrow and a heart cut so
deep that it might never heal. She is a wounded
woman, psychologically trapped between two worlds – a realm of darkness
and desolation and a life of love, hope and freedom. The man, who
controlled, manipulated and mistreated her as a child, is a malignant
shadow – a dangerous spectre lurking in the backdrop, who is hell-bent
on destroying and consuming her. But now she must find the strength to
fight for liberation. Banish the demons forever and embrace true love,
before she is devoured by the spirits of yesterday. This is a
powerful and riveting story of one young woman’s courage, bravery and
determination to overcome a distressing and traumatic childhood and
welcome a new life with the man she truly loves.
A tall, dark, handsome guy breezes into my dorm room, his long brown
cardigan swooping across the scope of the generous space. I’m sitting on
my bed, eyes closed, heart open, feeling the coolness of his sexy
ambience rushing onto my face. It feels refreshing, delightful,
satisfying. Slowly, I ease my eyes open halfway, and my glance moves to
the doorway, where the presence of an ebony shadow stands proudly,
absorbing the light from the corridor. It makes me feel weak in the
knees, like a damsel in distress whose superhero has come to rescue her
from the tedium of uni life: studying, essays, exams and heavy
assignments. My face brightens, and I welcome the distraction.
Quickly, my eyes fully open; my heart races. I know who this sexy
20-year-old guy is. I am so happy he has come. I cannot breathe for a
few moments, and I push my hands firmly into the bed, leaving a dent, my
imprint of love, in the malleable covers. I lift my body up vertically
with these sturdy hands, and swing my bottom, back and forth, using the
strength of my body weight to keep me balanced. I stare deep into his
eyes, rendering him speechless at the sight of my light acrobatic
performance. I’m excited! He knows it. He can see my enthusiasm shining
through my eyes.
I am completely stimulated by this luscious visitor, and I can see
his eyes nearly bursting with fervour. He wants to touch me, I can tell.
But he is much too far away to do more than enjoy my body from a
distance. He licks his lips, staring readily at my breasts, nature’s
kind gift to men. I move into his line of vision like an ocean’s soft,
iridescent current, and moisten my thin, red lips, desperate for him to
come closer. Slowly, teasingly, he ambles towards me, his custom-made
jeans with diamond studs at the sides hanging loosely down, sagging at
the bottom. The waistband of his blue Calvin Klein boxer shorts is
clearly visible, more than adamantly insisting on his sexual prowess.

I was born in East London and have lived there most of my life. I
started writing stories at six and have enjoyed writing ever since. In
2005 I graduated from Roehampton University and it is then that I found
my literary voice. I began writing professionally in January 2014, when
my novel ‘Heaven Calls For An Angel’, was published by a digital
publisher. I wrote this book as a tribute to a friend who sadly died of
cancer. My latest novel, The Glass Heart Girl, I published as an indie
author at first. But then I got discovered by a publisher and I am on
the verge of landing a book deal.

But whatever I'm doing, I always spend my time wisely. Every second in life is precious and should not be wasted.

Debbie from The Cover Collection creates all my covers. I request semi-custom covers from her. I choose the basic cover, then I have a say on how the picture is built up. She, of course, helps me to decide on any additional images I want to use, and gives options on text layout, positioning of images and text, level of blending etc. I love working with Debbie. She provides a great service and her covers are amazing. Check out her website - http://www.thecovercollection.com .
Not so much now. But in my late teens, I often used to dream of being in Alice In Wonderland's eccentric world. I loved dreaming about having tea with the Mad Hatter, laughing with the Cheshire Cat and exploring a dangerous yet totally thrilling world, completely outside reality.
My favourite book guy... Well, I think it has to be Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice. He is just the ideal, sexy male lead, who is so easy to love and admire. His appeal is not just about his money, but his capacity to love and his intense, true feelings and emotions, which set him apart from the average male hero... Being British, I can't help adore the man.
My writing circles have really supported me. I owe them so much. They have believed on me, bolstered me and have been behind me every step of the way. I thank them from the bottom of my heart
