Exciting New Beatrice Beecham Collaboration!

I'm please to announce that there will be a collaboration with MONIQUE SNYMAN, author of the SHADOW GROVE series of books for Young Adults. Coming in 2019 will see both Beatrice Beecham and Rachel Cleary from Shadow Grove team up to combat the evil SOUL STEALER in a novella-length story.

As editor of both CRYPTIC CRYPT and the forthcoming SHIP OF SHADOWS (released in November 2018), Monique is very familiar with the Beatrice Beecham universe, so this is going to be an exciting project.

More details can be found in the PRESS RELEASE.

Be sure to check out THE NIGHT WEAVER, the first in the SHADOW GROVE series. There is also companion short story.

Prestigious CROSSROAD PRESS (CP) have acquired the first two books in the Beatrice Beecham series. Both titles have been re-edited and are now graced with rather fetching covers, as you can see below!
