Intelligences have evolved, but will people ever change?

Amelika, Terra's Prime Multipath Talent, is ageing. After a lifetime of unparalleled achievements, she should be enjoying a satisfied retirement. To do so, she must nominate a successor. Supervisor Maclaren, her lifelong nemesis, believes the role is rightfully his, but she knows he would only abuse the position of power. The ache of every bone in her body tells her time is running out to find someone more worthy.

Laelika doesn't fit in. She avoids everyone, but trouble still finds her. The other chargelings at the Orphanage treat her as an outcast. With no sign of any Talent, it seems unlikely that she will ever find a place among the Clans. Something is consuming her; something she refuses to remember or acknowledge.

On the surface, it would appear the two have nothing in common. Yet there is a force which binds their fates together; both are damaged and without each other, neither will survive. Will Amelika's Talent be enough to save them both?

And so begins the journey of Apprentice, the first book in the fantasy series Talents of Terra, tracing four generations of powerful women in a world where human intelligence has evolved beyond any predictions but in other ways, the worst parts of human nature remain the same.

Grab Apprentice today and discover a world of intriguing characters in which corruption threatens integrity in a timeless battle of power.

About the Author

I grew up sailing dinghies on Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne (Australia), a hobby shared by my whole family. I’ve also had a passion for reading, writing and language in general since my earliest childhood days. My introduction to fantasy in my early teens was reading my sister’s bookshelf, strewn with novels by Anne McCaffrey and Frank Herbert. The dragons were (and still are) my favourite characters. My first (and until now unrealised) ambition was to become a published writer. These days I combine that passion with my love of being on the water; my partner and I call our 40ft catamaran home. We are mainly based in New Zealand but visit Melbourne each year to see family and friends. Winter usually sees us sailing north to the South Pacific islands, chasing the sun. Being a blue nomad gives me the time to write, and the lifestyle provides the headspace to live in the moment and cherish each adventure.

I love hearing from readers; you are the reason I write. So please get in touch by dropping me an email below or connecting with me on Facebook. I reply to every contact, but if we’re in the middle of an ocean crossing it might take me a week or two, until we’re back in wi-fi range.
