Welcome to author Tahlia Newland
Hi. I’m an author, avid reader, extremely casual high school teacher & occasional mask-maker. I write urban fantasy and magical realism for adults & young adults and like to challenge readers to look more closely at the nature of their world, their mind and their perception. After creating, scripting and performing in Visual Theatre shows for 20 years, I’m now a bone-fide expatriate of the performing arts. I live in an Australian rainforest, am married with a teenage daughter and love cats, but I don’t have one because they eat native birds.
Truth in fiction? Or, do they really grow rice in
How do you kill a demon that feeds on fear? When shadow demons kidnap her mother, Ariel follows them into a hidden layer of reality, but her rescue mission goes awry when she discovers that the demons feed on fear, they’re hunting her and they’re aiming to kill. A quirky old guide teaches her how to locate and unleash her inner power, and while battling hallucinogenic mist, treacherous terrain, murderous earth spirits and self-doubt, she falls in love with Nick, a Warrior whose power is more than either of them can handle. Can she defeat the demons before they slay her and enslave her mother? Ariel’s journey challenges her perception, tests her awareness and takes her deep into her heart and mind to confront, and ultimately transcend, her fear and anger.
