What if all our lives were mapped out before birth? Does anyone have the power to change our destiny?

Ella hates London. She misses her old life in Spain and is struggling to get over her past—until she meets Zac. He’s always loved her but isn’t meant to be part of her story. Not this time. Not ever. Little does she know that his secret is the one thing that will tear them apart and force her to live in a world that no longer makes sense. A world full of danger, lies and magic.

The Path Keeper is a passionate tale of first loves, second chances and the invisible threads that bind us. Can love ever be stronger than fate?

Writing The Path Keeper, and the other subsequent books in the series, has been a tumultuous journey. I first had the idea in 2012 and seven years later I’m incredibly moved that Ella and Zac’s story is going to be read worldwide. The themes of fate, past lives, love in all its guises and being a teenager in London and Spain are all very close to my heart. I can’t wait to hear what others think.
