As an unabashed lover of all things happily ever after, Shaila's younger self would finish reading Cinderella and fling her copy across the room because it didn't mention what happened next. Now she writes from her home in the Carolinas and dreams up all sorts of stories with epilogues and characters who look like her.

Her #ownvoices debut novel, Soulmated, won first place in the YA category of the 2015 Chanticleer Book Reviews Paranormal Awards, The Author's Circle 2017 YA Book of the Year, the RWA's FF&P's 2018 PRISM award for Best First Book and Best Young Adult Paranormal, and second place in the YARWA's ATHENA award for YA Paranormal. Fighting Fate and Enduring Destiny, Books 2 and 3, are out now!

At the end of the series, I'm planning on writing a historical novella that tells the story of the very first soulmated empath couple from 4500 years ago and how those events influenced Lucky and Liam's present. :)

Thanks for the question!(less)

I was so excited about the henna design, and considering how important the sense of touch is in this story, the cover nailed it!(less)

“True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

“Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.”
Anne Frank

“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.”
Mark Twain

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”
Plato

“If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it.”
Stephen Colbert
