In 2019 she would begin her ‘Parallel Duet’ series with the novel ‘Parallel,’ followed by ‘Intersect’ later that same year.

Looking at the relationship of Amelie and Henri, this sees everything shifting for Henri after Amelie’s departure. Now war is looming on the horizon, whilst Amelie is facing a challenge like none she’s faced before, or could possibly have even predicted.

There’s so many fun and entertaining elements incorporated here, including romance and time-travel, but it always has a heart to it. This emotional resonance elevates the book, giving it a real sense of immediacy, relating to the reader in a manner quite unlike any other.
