Tropes in her other works:
- Companion Cube: Brother to Dragons, Companion to Owls has an interesting twist — inanimate objects constantly talk telepathically to the autistic main character, Sarah. And no, she's not imagining it: they sometimes tell her useful things, like the combinations to locks and safes, or the location of hidden items.
- Everyone Can See It: In the short story "Ruthless", this trope is subverted: The long list of people other than Crown Prince Michael and Judith who can see it include a pair of plotters who intend to use their feelings for each other against Queen Elizabeth.
- Speaks in Shout-Outs: In Brother To Dragons Companion To Owls, the main character can only communicate via quotes from literature. It's heavily implied that she is autistic.
