Shel Delisle swam with the dolphins once upon a time. While it was an incredible experience, sadly, the dolphins didn’t speak to her. Even though she lives in Florida with her hubby and three boys, she doesn’t spend as much time as she would like in the water. Most days she writes fiction or works on the kid-lit community website, http://www.whatchareadingnow.com, that she founded with two other writer friends.

Hi Mo!

I've begun plotting Book 4 (tentatively titled Launched!), and based on what I have so far, I think that book will answer a lot of the questions everyone has about Victor. Aisha will also be back in a bigger role (which makes me happy -- I love her character, and hope you do too.)

I'll need to do some thinking about Annex and Book 4. If he makes it in, he'll have a smaller part, because....well, just because. Ha! Sorry, I know that doesn't answer the 'why?', but I don't want to give away too much yet.

If there's a Book 5 -- and I'll keep writing them as long as people are reading and enjoying them -- Annex could come back in a bigger way.

Thanks for reading the series and asking about it!

Best, Shel (less)

Hi Larissa!

Thanks for stopping by to ask. Errr....I don't know how it's coming. Sorry, that's a horrible answer. Right now I'm really close to releasing a series of three summer romance novellas called Denim Days. They're contemporary (no fantasy) fiction about two best friends who are headed off to college when they start to realize their feelings are deeper than they'd always thought. Since I'm so focused on that, my brain won't seem to function on another story.

Strangely, every once in a while I start to wonder what would happen if Grace met vampires, but that's not even the premise behind Launched. So weird. Anyway...I hope once these other books are out, I'll return to Grace and her capers. I'm just not sure if that'll involve vampires or not. LOL.

It's always great to hear from readers. stay in touch!

Shel

There is something about the sight of the ocean that engenders a huge sense of peace in me. I’m not sure if it’s the size, the sound of the waves, or the fact that it puts things in perspective by making me realize how small I am (along with any perceived problems.)


Or it could be that it’s home—the place we all come from.


Regardless, I’m fortunate to live close enough to get there any day. I don...

Blown Away! by Shel Delisle
"Oh my Gosh, at last!
I want want want this asap

Having read the first chapter, I can already see that
1. the dynamics between the characters are as good as ever
2. I will love Natura
3. The plot is promising"

“Have you ever decided to do something that seemed like a good idea‌—‌maybe even an inspired idea‌—‌and in the second before there’s no turning back, you think, I musta been totally mental when I came up with this? And then, Oh well, here goes.”
Shel Delisle, Winging It!

“Geez. I was worried about this when the Murphys eyed each other. Do they suspect? And, if a five-year-old knows I say weird things, how will I ever blend in at school?”
Shel Delisle, Winging It!

“crack up and tease, “Oooh! A Wingless One! I’m so scared!” There’s silence on the line. I’d expected Victor to laugh with me. Finally, he said, “You shouldn’t joke about things you don’t understand.”
Shel Delisle, Winging It!
