COURSE OF MIRRORS won the HC desk in 2011
The novel (120 000 words) will be released by 'Armadillo Central' in Spring 2014, which is why I took down the sample chapters, apart from two, and perked up the word-count with short stories and poetry.
'Ana's world is a place of enchantment and dark mystery and yet totally believable ... just gorgeous in every way.'
... Fantasy author, Raven Dane (Morven) ...
' ... sizzling with original ideas and stunning descriptions … an excellent story, exceptionally well written.' - Margaret Woodward, author of ‘The Devil’s Bairn.’
A sequel I'm working on loops into the future - and is both a Science of the Heart and a Science Fiction.
I'm grateful to my friends here. The generous feedback I received (over 900 comments) encouraged and improved my writing no end. My best advice for newcomers - if you want feedback, give it ☼

And my write-up about a wonderful authonomy project:
There are many great reads on this site. Since the treasures I cherish would make a long list, I mention only one book, for impact - deeply touching and original ... 'Last Days of the Transitional Objects Institute' by Andrea Levine.
