Overview

I am a developmental editor who was born and raised in England but made the move to Prague in the summer of 2013. I'm incredibly passionate about the written word and psychology, which means that I tend to focus on character development, body language, fight scenes, and the more people orientated parts of both life and writing. When I'm not editing, or writing my own fiction, I enjoy wandering around the city and exploring new nooks and crannies. In England I was very much a horse woman and I look forward to returning to that some day.

Steve Turnbull

She was the innocent victim of a prophecy. They used her as an unwitting pawn in a twisted plot. Elona was at the mercy of all around her while they vied to bring about the end they were willing to do anything to achieve. That is, until she found herself surrounded by a darkness she couldn't ignore and a future she couldn't change.
