Growing up, stories were how I learned to make sense of the world around me, but I struggled to find ones that fully represented me, in all my mix of identities and histories and the cultures that I grew up with. So I decided to write my own.
Blood Heir is an amalgamation of that: a group of characters from different kingdoms and cultures that each carry a small part of me, set in a cinematic world brimming with my love for fantasy, and representing a global human epidemic that stems from my knowledge of world issues and is deeply rooted in my own family history.
I’m so thrilled to be bringing a piece of my heart and mind to you, and I hope my book can introduce a new perspective to my readers.

Blood Heir is the first book in an epic new series about a princess hiding a dark secret and the conman she must trust to clear her name of murder.
Princess Anastacya Mikhailov of Cyrilia has lived her life in safety, hidden behind palace walls. But when she is framed for her father’s brutal murder, she must leave behind everything she has ever known to find his killer and prove her innocence. And there is only one person corrupt enough to help her – Ramson Quicktongue.
A cunning, silver-tongued crime lord of the Cyrilian underworld, Ramson has his own sinister plans – though he might have met his match in Ana. Because in this story, the princess might be the most dangerous player of them all.
A YA epic with a bloody twist, Blood Heir is perfect for fans of Victoria Aveyard, Sabaa Tahir, and Sarah J. Maas.
