Mythology

A quick re-cap – not too spoilery if you haven’t read the series.

The Fallen

Thrown out of heaven for seducing human women, Semyaza and two hundred other angels spent thousands of years being tormented in hell for their crimes. When they finally broke out a hundred and forty years ago, they did the same thing again. And then they mysteriously disappeared.

The Rephaim

The Rephaim are their offspring. Half-angel and half-human, they were tracked down and raised by Nathaniel, a fallen angel seeking redemption. He believes the Rephaim’s destiny is to find their fathers and deliver them back to the Angelic Garrison.

The Angelic Garrison

An army of archangels. The Fallen served with them before disgracing themselves. It was the Garrison who sent Semyaza and the Two Hundred to hell.

The Gatekeepers

Gatekeeper demons are also tracking the Fallen since their escape from hell, and are looking to wipe out the Rephaim along the way.

About Me

I’m the author of the Rephaim series and The Undercurrent.

For my day job, I’m a writer-journalist-professional communicator, where my writing involves a lot less profanity.

I grew up in regional South Australia and now live in the Scenic Rim with my husband and a retired greyhound.

If you’re interested in how I came to land a publishing deal, you can read the short version in this post from August 2011. There’s a longer version (in a guest post) here.
