Cover Reveal & Pre-Order!

American Royals meets Succession in this contemporary YA set in a glamorous boarding school where four teens compete to inherit a European kingdom.

This gossip-filled school for the global elite is inspired by UWC of the Atlantic, which Vanity Fair has described as “Hippie Hogwarts.”


A Bit About Me

Hi, I’m Lindsey. I write Middle Grade and Young Adult, while also reading it compulsively.

It’s every kid’s dream to be a dragon, right? Wrooooong.

Did anyone ask me if I wanted to become a dragon with bad breath, a big lizard body with teeth and claws? And did anyone bother to check with me if I wanted to spend day after day in the back of a dusty old temple studying ancient prayers?

In case anyone’s keeping track, the answer is no. Always no.
