STRANGELANDS (published by Humanoids) 


Description: “Opposites attract? Elakshi and Adam Land aren’t married. In fact, a month ago, they were perfect strangers, dwelling in lands foreign to one another. But now, they’re forced to remain by one another’s side, for their separation could mean the planet’s demise. Their greatest challenge is to stay together — even if they have to tear the world apart to do so.”

  3. Hi Darcy just read some of your fabulous stories as I lay in bed waiting for the temperature to drop so I can sleep ( its 30 Celsius here in Townsville). Indea sent me links to them and I found them to be so fresh and genuine and filled with wonderful imagery. Thank you Robbi (Indea’s mum)
