She completed her elementary and secondary education at Felixton College and is currently studying at the University of Toronto, Mississauga as a third year student. Tanwa has two supportive parents and two siblings, a brother and sister, who look up to her. Tanwa enjoys reading but her passion is in writing her own stories in which she incorporates her own experiences. Phantom Rose is her first published work and she hopes to write more books in the future.

Phantom Rose

It started with a story as ancient as ‘once upon a time’ in the realm of Hiliax. A story of treason and love that runs deeper than anyone knows. Lillianett is the latest chapter in that story, a half-breed of two realms that at all cost must survive the stigma of her ancestor’s choices. For an entire year she will need to stay hidden and alive so she may return to Tarress realm (Earth) unfortunately Lillianett is hot-tempered which makes her task nearly impossible. Can she succeed in continuing this story or will she be the final chapter?
