Blue Moon

(Book 1 in The Blue Crystal Trilogy)

When 17-year old Emily Morgan meets beautiful but strange Theo de Lucis, there is an immediate attraction between them. But what is his secret? What ancient link ties him to Emily? And what is the significance of the Blue Moon Ball? As Emily is drawn irrevocably into the glamorous and mysterious world of the de Lucis family, she is forced to change every perception she has ever had about life, love, aging and death. The truth is terrifying and the consequences unthinkable in this supernatural horror story, based on society’s obsession with aging and the desire for eternal youth. 

“Forget vampires,” he laughed dismissively. “Who wants to drink blood for eternity? What we have discovered is far more seductive and a great deal more dangerous…”

Find Your Sparkle – The 30-day Sparkle Plan

“Things are out of balance,” I said to a friend over coffee. “The only way I can function is to consume endless cups of coffee, bars of chocolate, cakes, biscuits and crisps. I’m on a permanent sugar high and it’s doing me no good.”

“You need to get your sparkle back,” she told me. 

I stared at her and had one of those eureka moments.

“That’s it! You’ve hit the nail on the head. I need to find my sparkle!”

And so the 30-day Sparkle Plan was born, a short, sharp fitness and wellness programme designed to wake up your energy, cleanse your system and improve your looks!
