Darker Fables

Writing and reviews. Adventures, maybe? Exciting, definitely.



About Me


My name is Deanna. I am a writer, budding traveller, and self-critical perfectionist. I like well-written fantasy with bite, and complex characters.

Fact freely given: I am trying to write a novel. With some emphasis on trying.

Darker Fables is my brainchild. It contains some writing, concerns some reading, and covers my various adventures.

My aim is to see what the world is made of.

I went to China a year or two ago. It was nothing short of epic, and I wrote a one-shot blog about it here:

(you’ll have to forgive the typos – this site is in desperate need of an overhaul!)


Also, you can visit my friend, editor and life advisor, the talented YA/NA novelist, Dekka Nye. She has her own site at:
