Recent Reviews

“Kilroy builds a unique world every bit as frightening as Orwell’s 1984 out of the basic building blocks of a classic fantasy. An inspiring coming of age story for any young girl struggling to navigate complicated social expectations. It may be a little heavy at times, but she somehow keeps it inspiring and YA appropriate without ever compromising her ambitious vision.”
– C. William Perkins, Steampunk Reviews

“I highly recommend this book to lovers of steampunk, fierce and strong heroines, and the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver.”

Journey to Vitruvia

“It’s like Downton Abbey and The Hunger Games had a baby.” – a U.K. reader

Like your books a little badass? Meet this one.

A willful heroine. An underground rebellion. A squadron of lethal debutantes. An epic love story. Think this sounds good? Don’t think. Read.

“I don’t want to live in a world where I can’t write, where I’m considered inferior, where I’m at the mercy of men all the time.”

First, a series of natural disasters devastated the land. Then came the famine. Soon, fear and panic spread throughout the United States. And out of the rubble of a broken nation, rose an empire. That is how Vitruvia was born.

Now in a nightmarish, Neo-Victorian future,  young Lorelei “Lore” Fetherston, the 18-year-old rebellious yet measured daughter of an aristocrat, rails against a repressive regime to carve out her own destiny.

 

If you’re curious about The Vitruvian Heir, here is a clip from my first author event at Trident Booksellers & Cafe where I explain how I came up with the idea for this story. I love these events because it’s wonderful for me to connect in person with people who’ve read my work! Without the support of my readers, this wouldn’t be happening, so I thank you all! And for those of you who haven’t yet purchased the book – I sure hope this piques your interest! Happy reading, friends!
