Dear Reader,

Mary Anning was a poor girl in 19th century England when she dug the skeleton of a dragon out of a cliff. Her fossil changed the way people saw the world, and it threw Mary into a treacherous circle of middle-class scientists. In CURIOSITY, she meets Henry de la Beche, a slave-owner's son looking for a new life.

"A big, juicy read." Elle Canada

"Brilliant... like riding a time-machine back into the 19th century." The Ottawa Citizen

"A thinking person's love story." The Erudite Editor

CURIOSITY was first published to rave reviews in Canada. To celebrate its wider release, I'm giving away five copies plus ammonite fossils. Contact me through
