About Shelley

A long time ago in a town far, far away, Shelley came into the world, and neither she nor it have ever been the same since. Shelley has always been a creator in many disciplines -- drawing, painting and photography as well as writing. She says, “I have always had a head full of stories. As a child I would put myself to sleep by living scenes in my imagination until I dozed off. I didn’t just make up stories, I became a part of them, I felt all the emotional nuances of the characters. Eventually, my head became so full of those imaginary people, demanding their chance to be made real in words, that I just had to start writing.”

Early literary influences include the queen of sci-fi, Andre Norton, and Marion Zimmer Bradley, both of whose novels still maintain a permanent place in Shelley’s personal library.

Daniel's mutant eyes mark him in a future world where mutants are considered 'devil's spawn', less than human, fit only for slavery. With enhanced vision and hearing, Daniel has survived despite a lifetime of rejection and betrayals. Hunted and driven into the northern wilderness, he finds a secure home in a hidden valley, but he remains solitary. Then he risks his life to save two normal holders and wins the chance to find true friendship at last, if he can only bring himself to trust once again.

Will Carrick, the son and heir to Laird Carrick, remains depressed and lost after getting blinded in a riding accident a year earlier. His grandmother, Old Anna, is a clairvoyant. When she tells him he must go on a quest to find a vocation, the idea of refusing never even occurs to him, though the prospect fills him with dread. She tells him he may take one companion with him as a guide. Will chooses young Sparrow, an orphaned stableboy new to the castle and essentially a stranger to him. To help Will on the journey, Old Anna has given him a talisman, a pebble she says will give him 'a kind of sight'.
