Izzy Robertson has been an integral part of Magic Oxygen for some time now.
Not only a great friend, she is also a wonderfully engaging fantasy fiction writer and a terrific editor too.
She edited Connor Cadellin McKee’s Children of the Crater, Sue Hampton’s The Dreamer (out Feb 2015) and she is presently knee deep in Max Brandt’s Blind Cupid and Gordon Strong‘s The Empire of Evil; we’ll be reporting more on the last two very soon…
Izzy has been a writer of esoteric material for many years, but only realised her dream to produce actual books after encouraging chats with us.
Izzy’s stories reflect her love of the unusual and magical and are aimed at young adults and lovers of fantasy fiction, whatever their age. ‘Maybe I never grew up,’ she says. ‘I love the thought that anything’s possible. Someone once told me that magic isn’t complicated, it’s the occurrence of the unexpected. We just have to open our eyes and look.’
Her authored works are When Joe Met Alice and Catching Up With the Past, both available as e-books for just 77p each. They are inexpensive supernatural short stories that will give you a fulfilling taster for Izzy’s writing style and hopefully, build up an appetite for something bigger.
Enter stage left: Dreaming the Moon, available soon in paperback and e-book.
Tortured by nightmares and bizarre experiences, Robyn Greening discovers her human world is linked with another magical universe and the barrier between them has been damaged to the point of collapse.
Dark powers have been growing in the magical realm, awaiting an opportunity to take control of both worlds. Robyn sets off on a danger filled quest to find a lost fragment from the shield and restore it to its rightful place.
Meanwhile, sinister forces on the other side are desperate to find it too. Increasing incursions from the magical realm put everything that Robyn has come to hold dear at risk as she and her friends search desperately for the missing piece.
Can she manage the impossible and save both worlds before the time runs out?
