Those Rosy Hours at Mazandaran

It begins with a rumour, an exciting whisper. Anything to break the tedium of the harem for the Shah's eldest daughter. People speak of a man with a face so vile it would make a hangman faint, but a voice as sweet as an angel's kiss. A master of illusion and stealth. A masked performer, known only as Vachon.

"A sumptuous dark treat of a novel, will keep you shocked and enthralled until the very last page." - Will Davis, author of The Trapeze Artist

"Disquieting and enchanting." - Peter Dawes, USA Today best-selling author of Pandora


The Tangled Forest

The trees whisper stories in the deep, dark woods.

One night, a little boy appears at the window of a girl’s cottage. Birthed by rain and thunder, he is motherless and hungry. Their friendship will lead them deep into the woods, where years later a girl draped in donkey skin will beg for their protection. Two sisters, a bear, and a man of undetermined height form the link in this chain, as they journey between the mountain’s legs to a castle far, far away. From the witch and the wolf to the king and his courtiers, no one leaves the tangled forest unchanged.

This is the retelling of three fairytales by the women who lived them: Red Riding Hood, Snow White & Rose Red, and Donkeyskin.


Secure the Shadow


Secure the shadow, ere the substance fades.

Drifting between Victorian England and modern-day Bristol, this novel explores the history of photography and our relationship with mortality. In a world where we shun death, why do so many still choose to capture that final memory post mortem?

Generations apart, two women share an unbreakable bond. Bella Meaden is about to lose all that she has for a man who can see the dead, whilst troubled art student Cody Watts may very well find that death restores her life.

The lens closes for a moment, but the image burns forever.


The Children of Lir

A curse that lasted 900 years, a legend that lasted forever.

This is the epic retelling of an ancient Irish legend in which a jelouse stepmother turns her children into swans, cursed to watch all that they love slowly slip away. 

From the Iron Age of Ireland to the dawn of Christianity, we traverse the realms of magic and sorcery. From the fort of Fionnachaidh to the watery wastes of Sruth na Maoile, hear tell the downfall of an ancient race and the children caught in its wake.

Creeper's Cottage

A supernatural ghost story based on David Southwell's Hookland, a mythical county in England where folklore lives and breathes.

“A slow burn of Hookland weirdness, atmospheric and inventive. Fantastical, yet rooted in realism that is alive with mystery and rich with history.” – Ralph Pullins, author of Antiartists

“Chilling and darkly atmospheric.” – Laine Cunningham, author of Beloved: A Supernatural Thriller

"A journey through the chaos of LSD and the magic of dreams. We've never read anything like this, the combination of the spiritual and the murderous is incredible" -



The year is 1932 and people are coming here to die.


A tuberculosis sanatorium in the Flinders Ranges of South Australia. Four patients unravel a complex set of relationships. From the trenches of Gallipoli to a burning house on the Ceduna coast, everybody has a secret to keep. Who will live and who will die is yet to be determined, but why some people live and others die can never be explained.

This was the first novel that Marion wrote, and the third to be published.
