Letting someone get close can be dangerous...

Rory is a young starveling, barely carving a survival for herself on the docks. And then Daria, older, brash, full of life, barrels into her world, recruiting her to help pick people’s pockets.

The two girls make awesome partners in crime, but Rory gradually realises that Daria might not be the person she pretends to be.

As Rory tries to find the truth beneath Daria’s facade, she discovers just how painful betrayal can be when coming from someone so close to her.

If you enjoy connecting with complex but flawed characters, then this is definitely going to be your kind of book.

The Pickpocket is the prequel to The Viper and the Urchin, a compelling, character-driven series, full of quirky characters, heart and humour, set in a richly-imagined world.
Please note this novella can be enjoyed as a standalone, or if you want to follow chronological order, it's best read after The Black Orchid, book 2 in the series.

Hi! I'm Celine

I write different flavours of fantasy with a twist, but always with one uniting thread: quirky, flawed characters and heart-warming found families.

My books span the sub-genres of steampunk (but set in a secondary, tropical world) urban fantasy (set in Asia and London) and gothic gaslamp fantasy.

I'm French, grew up in the UK, and for the last few years I've been living a life of nomadic adventure, exploring the world with my laptop as my constant companion. My adventures have been a great source of inspiration for my stories.

These days I'm trying to figure out where in the world I might stop and setup some bookshelves.

I love to hear from readers, so feel free to contact me at
