I write crime, horror, fantasy and romance. My 40+ novels and short stories have been published in Australia, US and the UK.
Mywork includes vampire novels, erotic spy adventures, het and queer romance, fantasy, horror and crime fiction, traditional Holmesian mysteries, and Holmes/Watson romances.
Always interested in music, from early piano lessons to the writing of lyrics, I’ve been creating music again recently through my Duo Ex Machina series and Kitty and Cadaver (Clan Destine Press)
Melbourne band, Bronze, collaborated with me to arrange and perform songs from Kitty and Cadaver, including performing an unplugged set of six songs at the 2019 launch of the novel. Do date Bronze has recorded Rain Song and Down.
Narrelle is currently in partnership with music producer Joshua King to develop the songs from Kitty and Cadaver, the Duo Ex Machina series and songs inspired by Sherlock Holmes. Our songs are released across numerous music platforms under the name ‘Duo Ex Machina’ – check the songs out on our Duo Ex Machina YouTube channel.
On Patreon, Narrelle is serialising novels, posting short stories and song lyrics, sneak peeks of works in progress, and occasionally posting about her research and her writing process.
