The Rose and the Thorn

28th August 2019

I am extremely proud and honoured to share my debut novel with you. 

"The Rose and the Thorn" is a retelling of the classic tale of Beauty and the Beast. It re-emphasises the darker fairy-tale elements of the original tale, but focuses more on the relationship between the titular characters. It is layered with romance, heartbreak... and danger. 

Available to download on Amazon Kindle.
