Go north, little human.
Go north until the winds blow cold and you walk on water.
Go north, and there you will find her.
With the Dragon’s prophecy ringing in his ears, Danis travels from town to town, seeking a wife. But at every stop, he is turned away, until he enters the City of Winter itself…
When Winds Blow Cold (Painted Hall #1) is an old-school fairy tale designed to open your eyes to wonder.
Ten-year-old Mica hates the cold. Yet he’s bound by duty—and prophecy—to rule over the City of Winter as his grandfather’s heir. All signs seem to indicate that something is wrong and the reappearance of the Yuki-Onna in the Painted Hall is an additional worrisome detail…
The Flame of the North (Painted Hall #2) follows Danis & Hana’s son as he attempts to fulfil the last portion of Dragon’s Prophecy.
In the Deep where none dare go
Beneath the rumbling earth
Before the Flame is doused
You must rekindle birth
The curse should have broken now that the King of Winter’s spirit has been released from the castle. Yet the Dragon has a new prophecy… and the creatures in Painted Hall have begun to speak aloud.
Beneath the Rumbling Earth (Painted Hall #3) brings you back to the City of Winter and into its hidden fiery depths.
On her eighteenth birthday, Hono is to be crowned Queen of the City of Winter but the Dragon disrupts the coronation ceremony with a peculiar cry:
Listen. Listen. Listen!
There is one more task to free the City of Winter of all enchantment—and Hono must listen carefully for it.
The final instalment of the Painted Hall collection, A Still, Small Voice (Painted Hall #4) revisits old truths and prophecies as Hono tries to put the pieces together.
A curse binds the City of Winter and the Dragon’s prophecy holds the key to breaking it. But will a poor fisherman from the South have the means to fulfil the prophecy? Or will the foreignness of the North itself repel him and his efforts?

For generations upon generations, Memories have been passed from mother to daughter in an unbroken line of Secretkeepers.
Not this time. When Nek Ramalan dies, her granddaughter, Rahsia, does not inherit the Memories. Instead, Iman struggles to fulfil a role she’s not prepared for… piecing together shards of Memories she’s not equipped to understand.
A sneak peek into the current trilogy Anna’s working on!
Jane Hays has been told all her life that it’s dangerous to be out in the forest past sundown. At fifteen, she’s quite sure that it’s all old wives’ tales… yet, why does her village bar the gates every night? Why do they even have gates? When she is caught in an unexpected rainstorm on her way home, Jane ignores all the warnings and seeks shelter in a cottage in the middle of the forest. Soon, she is caught up in a world of magic and beauty – and in the storm of the Fairy Queen’s wrath.
The Fairy Queen is out for blood. There have been intruders – human intruders – in her domain and she will stop at nothing to find them and kill them. After all, it is only fair. She is only seeking retribution for the death that humans leave in their wake.
But Jane isn’t all that she seems to be. And the events of the night aren’t as innocent as they appear.
A tale of magic, fairy creatures and family, Coexist is a novella for the young and the young-at-heart.
Exiled. Powerless. The world he grew up in is changing—he feels it, feels the devastation being wrought. But what can he do so far away from home?
Lost. Afraid. She’s being enlisted to help save Alam Dongeng—a magical world she knows little about. How can she tell stories she doesn’t even know?
Worried. Confused. He’s long forgotten his grandfather’s stories—it’s familiar, but he’s never really believed in them. Why should he start now?
Dongeng tells the story of Sara and Helmi’s awakening to magic in their own country. There’s a war to protect Alam Dongeng, helmed by the Orang Bunian and Garuda. But are the ranks of Hantu really their enemies? They may very well be fighting the wrong battle.
A sequel to Coexist, Dongeng draws you into a whole new realm of fairy tales.
