Hi! I’m Tallulah

Hi! I’m Tallulah. I write stories about ordinary people who find themselves in extraordinary circumstances. Usually involving magic and often involving portals to strange worlds.

When I’m not writing, you can find me with my nose in a book, a paintbrush in my hand or running The Dragon Writers Facebook group for authors.

Follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for updates, or sign up for my newsletter to be informed of new releases and special offers.
