Welcome to the Web site of author Natalie Wright. I create stories for young adults and adults. I am the author of the Akasha Chronicles, a young adult paranormal fantasy trilogy. Book 1, EMILY'S HOUSE, and Book 2, EMILY'S TRIAL, available at all online stores (see links below to purchase).
From the Back Cover of Emily's House:
Fourteen-year-old Emily Adams is flunking math - and life. But Emily has a secret that she has kept even from her best friends. Soon the ancient legacy coursing through her veins will force her secret to be revealed. Dormant for over a thousand years, an evil has arisen and this time, it will destroy anyone - or anything - that stands in its way.
Three teens embark on a dangerous journey and risk everything. For Emily, the fate of her friends - and her world - lies in her hands.
Travel with Emily as she unlocks the secrets of her Celtic ancestors as she goes on a mystical journey to the inner house and beyond.
Gary Smails of BubbleCow Editing said:"I have THOROUGHLY enjoyed reading (and this is a rare comment to type!) this full manuscript. Overall a strong character-led narrative, one that is engaging, original and current."
What readers are saying about Emily's House:
"The vast border betwixt a contemporary American Southwest and an ancient, Celtic Ireland is as foggy and hazy as a seaside, Sligo morning; yet this chasm is bridged brilliantly and smoothly enough to ease the reader hither and thither, back and forth, between said realms.
Natalie Wright has divined in Emily's House a simultaneous modern and ancient fairy tale of the greatest kind: sans parents, sans immediate consequence, sans cowardice. Bravery is said to be not the lack of fear, but action in the face of it. Like the best of Grimm, Perrault and Charles Schulz, Ms. Wright's kids find themselves amidst adventure, terror and turmoil, as well as ineffective and/or absent parental units. By their own bootstraps they must find help themselves to find their way home, to save not only each other, but perchance an entire civilization. "Adults drool, kids rule" is the motto for any well-written young adult or children's tale. Natalie's kids indeed rule.
This one will last, alongside Grimm, Perrault and Schulz, in the coffers of timeless, fantasy literature. Plus, there's Hindergog and no one could not love Hindergog! Well done, Ms. Wright. Well done, indeed." - Jennifer S. Devore, Author of The Darlings of Orange County
"This book is very entertaining. Emily is a very strong and courageous character and a good role model/example for young girls. This is a Trilogy and I cannot wait to see what happens in Book 2!
This story makes you think about and question things such time, reality and are there other dimensions. It is a great story for young girls showing that they can be strong and courageous. The characters are very relatable." - Virginia C.
"Very fast paced and action packed, good versus evil with some mythology thrown in for good measure. I think this book is great for YA and and any age for that matter. You will love and cheer on the characters as they do battle with the bad guy." - Kathleen Kelly
"There were some really cool thoughts expressed through the characters- and let me say it was refreshing to see some characters who weren't dim witted.
I wouldn't hesitate to tell anyone to read this book!
I don't know how to really review this book without giving spoilers, yet showing how much I loved it. I'm definitely going to be reading the next book in the series, which by the way should be available in the Fall of 2012." - Neriahxo
