I've had some questions about the location of the series. So to set the record straight, Port Oxford does not exist except within the pages of the books and in my mind.

Here's a sneak peak at the map which will be included in book three of the series, due out in 2019.
They say to write from experience and I have found that to be true. It is so much easier for me to write about a house, for instance, if it resembles one I already am familiar with. Amy's house is similar to one I lived in many years ago. I loved it and remember it well. In her house I made the changes I only dreamed of making. Sadly, it has long since been torn down.
