Karissa lives in North Carolina with her kid, her husband, the occasional in-law, and a very hairy husky. Some of her favorite things are coffee, chocolate, and super heroes. She can quote Princess Bride verbatim. She loves to read and has a sweet tooth for fantasy, sci-fi, and anything in between. In the summer, she loves to be on the water, on the boat or in her kayak. When it snows, you'll find her on the slopes.

Thanks, Lillian. I am so glad you liked it.

I have finished book 2, and my faithful and amazing beta readers are making the draft manuscript bleed with their red pens right now.

I hope to have it cleaned up and submitted to my publisher very soon.(less)

Sarah, I am so happy you love the series. That just makes my day!

Funny you ask about book 3 because I was just talking about this on my FB page a few days ago. Good News: 1st draft of Book 3 is done and might even have a title. Bad news: I've got to get it to beta readers before I hand it over to my publisher.

HOWEVER, In the meantime, I'm working on another Norse Chronicles project that I hope will tide everyone over until Book 3 is released next year.(less)

There are many things to love about this book, but top of my list is the utterly unique world-building. There's just enough "familiar" there to ground it, but Mary Fan elevates her story with elements that are much less common than the typical YA far ...more
