Celtic mythology and the modern world collide in Through the Door, the first book in the new urban fantasy series The Thin Veil.
Cedar McLeod lives an ordinary but lonely life, raising her six-year-old daughter Eden on her own while trying to balance the demands of her career and the expectations of her mother. Everything seems normal until the day Eden opens her bedroom door and finds herself half a world away – and then goes missing. Suddenly, Cedar realizes her daughter is anything but normal.
In a desperate search for answers, Cedar tries to track down Eden’s father, who mysteriously disappeared from her life before Eden was born. What she discovers is far beyond anything she could have imagined. As she joins unlikely allies in the hunt for her daughter, Cedar finds herself torn between two worlds: the one she thought she knew, and one where ancient myths are real, the stakes are impossibly high, and only the deepest love will survive.
I was a short track speed skater for years (and still have the thighs to prove it). Once I gave up on my Olympic dreams, I earned a B.A. in Communication Studies, during which time I also cut my teeth in the communications industry as a speechwriter for former New Brunswick Premier Frank McKenna. After university I spent a summer working with refugees from Kosovo and then spent some time in Belfast where I was schooled in the fine arts of drinking and swearing.
For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to follow this up with a stint at seminary, so I moved to Winnipeg and earned an M.A. in Global Studies. Once that gig was up I spent a few years in the real world as a fundraising and marketing executive with non-profit organizations in Toronto and Vancouver (which is where I still live, because it’s the best place on earth).
After having a couple of children and no longer digging the commute, I decided to start my own business as a freelance copywriter, which is still my day job and one I’m quite fond of (writing, paycheque, pyjamas … what’s not to like?).
And because balancing the demands of a family and a business weren’t keeping me busy enough, I figured this would also be the perfect time in my life to start doing the only thing I’ve ever really wanted to do: write novels.
And here we are.
