Katalepsis is an urban fantasy/cosmic horror/lesbian romance Web Serial Novel, currently updating with new chapters once or twice weekly.

Nightmares and hallucinations have plagued Heather Morell all her life. Diagnosed with schizophrenia as a child after the loss of her twin - a sister nobody else believes ever existed - and now struggling with her mental health at university, Heather teeters on the verge of giving up on life. A chance meeting ends in a revelation: she is not crazy, her visions are all too real, and probably want to eat her soul.


Embroiled with a crippled, bad-tempered magician and her self-proclaimed ‘bodyguard’, Heather descends into a world of terrifying magic and otherworldly monsters, in an effort to stay alive and sane, and bring her sister back from beyond.

Katalepsis is a low urban fantasy story seen through the lens and values of cosmic horror, peppered with violence and tea, sexually confused twenty-somethings and bad curry, wrapped in a nice crunchy layer of lesbian relationship drama, set in a fictional English university town full of spooky old architecture and run-down terraced housing.
