Tima Maria Lacoba is a paranormal, urban fantasy romance writer, who loves to include a bit of history, a bit of suspense and lots of thrills in her books. Her Dantonville Legacy Series—although set in modern-day Sydney—spans a two-thousand year period, and the ending of an ancient curse.
Tima lives on the Central Coast, an hour’s drive north of Sydney in Australia in a little house surrounded by bushland, possums and seed-dropping Rosellas on one side, and waterways on the other.
Prior to that she was a practicing archaeologist, having worked on some amazing digs around the world. After several years in the field she was drawn to teaching and ended up as Head of History in a local high school. It enabled her to take her students overseas to visit various archaeological sites in Europe and Britain. It was a way for her to combine her love of history with travel, and share it with others. On one tour, in Italy, she managed to indulge her other passion–gelato ice cream.
Nowadays, when not working in her garden, Tima’s writing and plotting the next series of books.
The Dantonville Legacy (3 Book Series)
Primary school teacher Laura Dantonville’s ordinary life comes to an end when she learns her family’s frightening ancestral legacy.
Propelled into a violent underworld ruled by magic, murder and mystery, and stalked by vampire clans who would do anything to possess her, Laura has to consent to the protection of a guardian – Alec Munro, powerful leader of the Dantonville clan – whose coveted position relies on her willingness to accept him.
And she has only one day to make a decision.
With time running out, Laura must choose to either accept her fate or allow her vampire-hating detective boyfriend to end the legacy his way – by wiping out the vampire side of her family.
After all, they’re not human are they?
