Thanks for the interview! I hope you enjoy Descendant.
Praise for DESCENDANT: “A hot new spin on paranormal, Descendant is refreshingly imaginative and powerful. I can’t decide which was best — piecing together Abby’s sinister past or keeping up with her heartbreaking future. If you like your YA laced with melt-my-heart romance and a good helping of heart-pounding suspense, you’ll love this book!” — Michelle Davidson Argyle, author of The Breakaway
“This debut novel delivers in all the right ways, with heart-pounding action and a delicious romance that sweeps centuries. I loved it!” –Elana Johnson, author of Possession and Surrender

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to meet Angela Corbett ,
author of Eternal Starling, a YA paranormal romance, coming 12-6 from Pendrell Publishing. We made for the mountains to take her author photos and connected with our inner children via the streams. Angela is beautiful and awesome, not to mention the fact that she saved me and my camera from falling into a waterfall during the shoot! I can not wait to read her series. Special thanks to Indelible author Lani Woodland for hooking us up. Lani took the cover photo for Eternal Starling which was revealed last Sunday on Cublicle Blindness. Isn’t it lovely?
