Hello :) I write supernatural and post-apocalyptic young adult novels which are also enjoyed by not-so-young adults. I live in Dorset, England with my husband and two noisy boys. Before children, I was signed to Universal Music as a singer songwriter. As well as writing novels, I also run eBookSoda - a place for readers to get FREE and bargain ebooks - yay!

As if I could hate it! As I said in my review - you did so well not to fall into the 'middle book' trap - even some 'famous' authors manage to fall at that hurdle - and I'm now positively gagging to see what happens next!
