Over to Jenny now...

Is there anyone who doesn’t like castles? If there are, I haven’t yet encountered them. One of the
great things about writing The Children Of  The Mist was the historical research of Scotland. And it’s impossible to research Scottish history or legend without encountering a dizzy array of castles. Some are still magnificent homes but others are just fragments of their former selves. Each and every one is a fascinating study. And I just had to have one.

After much deliberation, I settled on Carrick Castle. This ruin is found on the shore of Loch Goil, south of Lochgoilhead in Argyll. It broods on a rocky outcrop and watches the water with broken eyes. It is a forbidding place. Both dark and severe.  The dark woods of Argyll Forest Park shield it from prying eyes. It sits in solitary splendour.

Built originally in the 12th Century Carrick Castle was probably a hunting lodge for the Lamont family. But in 1368 it fell into the possession of the Campbell Earl’s of Argyll. This was just too great a discovery to dismiss. Carrick Castle it had to be. It is said that in 1563 Mary Queen Of Scots stayed there. Today it belongs to Alex Fleming who is renovating the castle back to its former glory.

But I love it as it is. A mysterious and ancient relic that belongs in the Scottish mists of time.


An original paranormal YA about an unconventional girl, an unconventional boy, their extraordinary transformations, and the secrets of the Scottish Highlands.

When skater girl Morven Smith turns sixteen, she develops boobs, acute appendicitis...and a pair of pointy teeth. While she is stunned by her metamorphosis into vampire, her best mate, the enigmatic Zest, is not. For the young werewolf, Morven’s transformation is an answer to his lonely prayers.

But they are unable to celebrate their mutual paranormalcy for long — there are too many dangers, too much suspicion, and too many questions. It’s only in Scotland that Morven can learn the truth about her past. But she discovers more than she bargained for when she meets her birth family — an ancient feud between vampires and werewolves. They may both be Children of the Mist, but only one species can survive.
