When it comes to fantasy, the world is always bigger than you think it is... Even when you live in the smallest town in the deepest corner of the country where, by official records, nothing has happened since Vikings stopped pillaging nearby.

Ally Guardian is convinced that the universe wanting anything to do with her is a cosmic joke. Until a strange man appears outside her window and tells her, “I can’t speak to you yet.” Things only get weirder when she is then implicated in a demonic attack on her history teacher and given the new girl, Alana Larbie, to look after as punishment.

Alana seems to know an awful lot about demons, claiming they got her kicked out of her old school. Together with Ally’s oldest friend Tanya, and their one “normal” friend, Teb, they decide to investigate.

The Troutesponde Series is a YA fantasy, working on the premise that if the supernatural did exist, inquisitive teenagers would be the first to notice, and absolutely the worst people ever to interact with it.


BOOK II - The Changeling's Choice

Alana the Teenage Witch is trying to lead a normal life... fixing doors to the fairy world, fighting the monsters that emerge through them, handing in her A-Level coursework, casting spells, and trapping pixies. Her new best friends have their own problems too, with a doppelganger changeling in their midst.

Another job is waiting for Alana, though. It’s all in a day’s work for the Piper’s protege.


BOOK III - Midsummer Dance

Teb Nandi is having dreams about being an owl. Every time she wakes, she hears voices calling her name. Could this be goblins at work? And then there’s the Piper telling her to stop complaining and do her job - easy to say when you’re not Goddess of the Hunt.

Prom night or Wild Hunt? Teb finds dealing with her constituents, and their idea of a good time, is a whole mess of weird. Never mind getting ready for a boring school dance and managing her date.

Unfortunately, she asked for it...
