I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. A story can change someones life, it can provide an escape to an alternate world, where anything seems possible. I feel compelled to write, my imagination overflowing with stories, that the world needs to hear. I am a curious and proactive new author, mum and nurse. I feel inspired to create, by the many amazing fantasy writers of past and present.

PRAISE FOR THE CROWNING SERIES
PRAISE FOR THE CROWNING SERIES:
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "If you're a fan of scheming princesses, interesting and varied magic, and a healthy dose of family drama, this book may be for you! I enjoyed how Nattie differentiated the various siblings and their personalities. The villain was particularly sympathetic and I could easily understand how and why she turned to evil. I also enjoyed final contest between the sisters. These things are usually pretty obvious, but I honestly had no idea who was going to win until right at the end. Kudos to Nattie for keeping the suspense going." Bonnie Wynne, Bestselling Author
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Wow! So much love for this book. If you are fan of royalty, add this one to your list! I haven’t ever read anything similar to this which made me enjoy it even more! It’s fast paced, and the writing is absolutely beautiful. A definite highlight was the characters! I felt they were so easy to fall in love with and get attached." Goodreads Reviewer
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ When I finally closed that last page, I felt complete. I highly recommend this series for people who want to keep guessing what the hidden story is, and love the concept of family values. Definitely a re-read type series.” Goodreads Reviewer
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "The Kingdom of Alearia— a magical world of wonder brought to life through the trials and tribulations of its royal family. In this book you’ll find love, kindness, betrayal, death, and the ultimate sacrifice. Mason developed strong characters and relationships, allowing you to delve into the minds of each and every one. One of the most lovely things is the moral compassing showcased in this book."

Cassidy Reyne, Author
⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Mason’s evocative writing instantly drew me in and I was hooked from the very first page. Her descriptive language seems so effortless and perfectly describes the characters and world. As usual, Mason destroyed me at the conclusion of this book and I am not quite sure if I can forgive her just yet. However, after the utter destruction of my heart, the epilogue was so tender it concluded this series perfectly. I suppose that speaks to the skill in her writing that one can feel so deeply for fictional characters. ”
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I loved it. From the very first page I was hooked. I could hardly put it down. I cried, so so much, but absolutely loved it. If you haven't read this series yet then you need to.”
