A coven of witches plots to overthrow a kingdom. One brave woman stands in their way.
At her mother’s death-bed, Elisabeth learns her mother’s illness is no accident and that her own life is in danger. Evil witches are plotting to take over the kingdom of Vendale. All alone, naive, and untrained, Elisabeth’s determination is all she has to confront her mother’s murderers as she discovers love at the same time. While Richard’s behaviour sends distracting mixed messages, Elisabeth finds herself stuck in limbo: she is treated like a child but is forced to make adult decisions. Meanwhile, the witches’ plot spins a fateful web around her.
Can Elisabeth succeed in the face of insurmountable odds?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
When I read Ella Enchanted as a teenager, I loved it, but was also left dissatisfied. Why do we always get the same few fairy tales when there are so many awesome ones out there? The Siblings' Tale two-part series is the result of my reply to that dissatisfaction by retelling a lesser-known Grimm fairy tale "Little Brother, Little Sister".
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Elisabeth is very much the combination of every trait I've hated in myself and everything I aspire to be.
Edvard is the outcome of my yearning for an older brother combined with observing other brother-sister relationships among my friends.
Richard turned out to be my visualisation of what I as a teenager longed for in a romantic relationship. As luck would have it, I met the man who became my husband less than four months after writing the first draft of The Siblings' Tale. So, clearly, I did something right.
