About The Dark Mirror Series (Young Adult; Historical Fiction; Fantasy; Time Travel)
Book One, Dark Mirror begins in 1803 Regency Britain, where magic exists but is disdained. When her noble family discovers that sixteen year old Lady Victoria Mansfield (Tory) is afflicted with magical abilities, they send her away to Lackland Abbey to be cured. Her world shattered, Tory’s deepest wish is to return home. But when she is forced to battle her very nature, Tory’s goals change and she starts to forge a new path. She joins a small, secret group nicknamed ‘The Irregulars’. Together they study magic in hopes of using it to defend Britain from an invasion by Napoleon. But disaster strikes one evening when they are discovered. Forced to flee, Tory accidentally falls through a time portal that takes her forward to 1940. There Tory finds war torn England bracing for a different invasion, from Nazi Germany.

Against vivid historical backdrops that include Dunkirk, Nazi occupied France and Regency England, Tory and The Irregulars continue their adventures in Dark Passage. Fast paced, historically accurate and imaginative, the series culminates in Dark Destiny. The Irregulars have experienced sacrifice, honor, friendship and loyalty. Will it be enough when they suddenly find danger on their doorstep? With the help of their twentieth century friends can the Irregulars dig deep within themselves and stop Napoleon from invading England?
