I’m very excited to announce that my interracial YA book, Unshatter Me is now available for pre-order directly from my publisher’s website. This book really is giving the YA genre a well needed make-over, with its diverse cast and the topics it covers. Unshatter Me delves into the themes of race and culture, sexual violence, youth crime and teenage pregnancy, in a responsible and relatable fashion.
Welcome to 2015! The year of diversity in the literary world.
Here is my cover folks! Viola!
There are very few books in all genres which feature an interracial couple on the front cover. They are extremely rare to find. I had say on this cover and made the suggestion to my publisher that I wanted both Alena and Phillip to appear on the cover, so readers will know that they are a couple.

Alena Pavlis moved to Surrey, on the outskirts of London, to escape her past. Now, heading off to college, she hopes that she can finally move on and start a brand new chapter. During her first day at Capendale University, she meets Phillip Gregson, the cute streetwise guy who introduces her to a whole new world.
At first, Phillip seems to be the answer to all of her problems. Yet quickly she finds that her childhood trauma is creeping in, and so are outside influences. As the relationship reaches its breaking point, Alena starts to pursue her own dreams and aspirations. Just as she is finding her feet again and preparing to audition for Capendale’s choir – the Coolette Singers, a perilous series of events turns her life upside down. Left with no other choice, Alena must confront the demons of her past head-on, even though it means risking everything.
