Read full description of the books War Of The Realms:In the world of Asgard, living among Odin, Thor and Loki are the Valkyries of legend. They are Norse goddesses who reap the fallen souls from human battlefields and have the power to cause death with just one touch.
At the end of The Runaway, Freya and the Valkyries are about to leave the human world when they learn that the Frost Giants, Fire Giants and Dark Searchers have united to declare war on the Realms. Bitfrost, the legendary rainbow bridge linking the human world to Asgard, has been closed.
With their only entry back to Asgard barred, how can the Valkyries get back to fight to protect their homeland? Loki claims he knows another, secret route but can they trust him? And even if they found a way - is there anything they can do to stop the war?
As the War of the Realms spills over into Earth, Freya and the Valkyries must find a way to save not just the Norse world but the human world as well. With everything at stake, can Freya become the Hero she was destined to be?

"There is a wonderful song that I feel best describes me … “I was born under a wandering star”.
This is true. I was indeed born under a wandering star. Coming from Canada, I was mostly raised in New York City – Although we did live in other cities such as Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, San Francisco and several small towns along the way. But I guess New York City was the closest I came to actually calling any one place home.
For me, all these cities and places were one big adventure after another. I can remember one particular occasion when my parents were moving us out west from New York to LA. We stopped in Galveston Texas just after a hurricane had blown through. Our hotel was on the beach, and right across the street was a large carnival that had been abandoned because of the storm. Unable to resist the temptation, my three brothers and I snuck out of our hotel and entered the fairgrounds. We had the whole place to ourselves! The rides, the fun houses, games and prizes were all ours to play with. What surprised us all the most was the popcorn still in the machines while seaweed, sand and shells covered the whole area. Our time in that ‘Play Park’ was a child’s dream come true and one of my fondest childhood memories.
It was adventures such as these that fuelled my active imagination and love of everything different. So many times I would be in New York and walking down 5th Avenue, imagining that I was actually soaring among the city’s canyons on the back of a wild dragon. Then when we lived in Florida, we would go down to the sea and I was suddenly living amongst the whales – Laughing and breaching in the sea’ heavy swells.
Then driving through a west Texas night, a star studded sky was yet another undiscovered playground…
When we moved to England, and then toured Europe, I was exposed to all the exciting and rich history of the area. So much so, that my imagination spilled over and I started to write. And although I have had many unusual jobs and careers, it has always been writing that has given me the most pleasure.All these things came together in me. They added to my love of reading and the fantastic stories my parents told us on our long journeys. It wasn’t long after that I was making up my own stories filled with strange and wonderful characters that I came to care deeply for.
Now I want to share that pleasure with everyone. Tell stories of wild adventures in strange lands – but filled with people who are just like you and me. And of families who face terrible dangers and come together as they fight for a common goal."
