Magic, Adventure, and Chocolate, Too…

The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart

Out Now in the UK

When fierce young dragon Aventurine is tricked into drinking enchanted hot chocolate, she’s horrified to find herself transformed into a puny, blunt-toothed, wingless human girl. But she’s still a dragon on the inside, and her instincts – combined with her new-found passion for chocolate – take her to the Chocolate Heart, a quirky chocolate house in need of help (and customers). Still, it will take all her courage, lots of chocolate and perhaps a little magic to learn to be her true self…

Published by Bloomsbury UK on February 9, 2017, by Bloomsbury Australia on March 1, 2017, and by Bloomsbury US on May 30, 2017.

“A gloriously fresh story to be read with a steaming cup of chocolate at hand.”

What They Said

Witty and smart and generous; an utterly delicious book

This spicy, unexpected book takes several chances, and pulls them all off with panache

The Guardian (on The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart)

She has quickly become my favorite middle grade heroine of recent memory

The Book Smugglers (on Kat, Incorrigible, a.k.a. A Most Improper Magick)

A perfect combination of romance, historical fiction and fantasy.
