My first novel, Shineland, is finished. Please follow @intoshineland for updates...

Molly Soames isn’t like anyone else. She’s carrying the Wakening, a remarkable power that helps her understand animals. When Mortimer Wyse starts stealing pupils from the eyeballs of the people she loves, Molly must go on a perilous journey into the world inside the pupil, Shineland, to seek everything she’s lost. If she’s going to survive, Molly must learn to truly trust her gift.
