What’s New with Katrina
Author of Young Adult Urban Fantasy
WELCOME! I’m Katrina, author of the upcoming urban fantasy book The Wise One.
As a reader, I’m a lover of all things magical, with an affinity for Celtic folklore, lush landscapes, and cruel fates.
As a writer, I like punch, flavour, wit, twists, nonsense, and naiveté.
The Wise One is a witchy book forged by themes of power, nature, and spiritual journeys. Expect to find faeries, friendship, and faith where one often fails to look. Imagine mystic lakes, magic realms, and harvest moons.
If you feel yourself lighting up with excitement, then this book was written for you.

A spiritual journey of self-discovery
Intuitive teen outcast Mckenna O’Dwyer is determined to find her birth mother when she discovers they share something in common: a connection with the Earth’s magic.
Mckenna has lived with nightmares all her life, but on the night of her seventeenth birthday, she wakes from her worst one yet: burning at the stake. A regular school day then manifests into a series of mysterious incidents. Reluctantly, her dads Sean and Andre tell her that she is a Wise One—whatever that means.
With the help of a persistent bird and an eccentric young neighbour, Mckenna journeys to Ireland to find her mother. Meanwhile, a High Priestess who’s been on the hunt for the Wise One for years has a plan of her own—to fulfill a vision by an infamous 16th-century witch.
“Someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”
