About the author

A.C. Sneyd

Mother and daughter writing duo. YA fantasy. Love triangles. Magic.

A writing duo comprised of long-time published romance author Cathy and her YA novelist daughter, Alice, they've banded together to create exciting young adult stories that centre around strong women characters overcoming life’s challenges, often set in fantasy-essque settings or inspired by fantasy worlds.

Cathy lives in the middle of native New Zealand bush and, when she isn’t writing, you can find her drinking tea, mucking about in her vege garden, or chasing after her escaped chickens. (Free range eggs sometimes means going on nature walks to find the latest nesting spot!)

Alice spends an inordinate amount of time at her mother’s house and when she is not writing, you can find her chasing waves at the local surf beaches, drawing, dancing and sometimes helping to recapture her mother’s escaped chickens.

Cathy and Alice love spending time writing together, and Alice only bosses her mother around occasionally. Writing is a means of expressing themselves, and they consider themselves extremely blessed to get along so well and to have each other to motivate, to bounce ideas off, and to push boundaries in their writing.
