In a Queendom divided, can one girl unite the realms?
To save her people, Lower-born Jacs must infiltrate the Upper Realm and earn her place to compete in the Contest of Queens. In a story about friendship, love, bravery, and defying gravity, Jacs will strive to prove that a Queendom is strongest when united.
Winning the crown was only the beginning.
After winning the crown, Jacs learns that being queen is in title alone when the Council uses their leverage to control her. But she soon uncovers a much darker truth from the Queendom’s past that will forever change its future.
Our own stories are sometimes the trickiest ones to write, so I’ll be brief. I was born in New Zealand and raised in New Zealand and Canada. I lived on islands and surrounded by mountains, and fell asleep to the sound of waves and train whistles. Growing up, home was the label given to family, not places, and stories of adventure kept me reaching towards the horizon.
I am a Speech Language Pathologist currently living in Canada. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English, a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, and a Masters of Science in Speech and Language Pathology. I have devoured literature all my life and have spent the last three years working on my novel, Contest of Queens to add to the world’s library. This is my first novel and I am excited to say that it has been picked up by CamCat Books Publishing. Order it now!
