Currently Querying: YA historical fantasy, fairy tale re-imagining
Crafted from birch and brought to life with sorcery, sixteen-year-old Mara dreams of becoming Papa’s apprentice. But when she meets a dashing stranger at market, her world tilts on its axis. When Julien is near, Mara’s pulse races, her cheeks flush, her wooden body acts human.
In search of answers, she discovers her birth is rooted in sinister magic and her own father may be guilty of unspeakable crimes. No one is who they say they are, but in her race to find identity within the madness, Mara becomes someone else, too. If she can unravel the grim family secret behind her existence, she may be able to stay human forever. But the cost is high and Mara could pay with the one thing she seeks above all else.
