As a child, Colleen Halverson used to play in the woods imagining worlds and telling stories to herself. Growing up on military bases, she found solace in her local library and later decided to make a living sharing the wonders of literature to poor, unsuspecting college freshmen. After backpacking through Ireland and singing in a traditional Irish music band, she earned a PhD in English with a specialization in Irish literature. When she’s not making up stories or teaching, she can be found hiking the rolling hills of the Driftless area of Wisconsin with her husband and two children.

Hi Carole,

Titles change all the time in marketing, but I'm currently calling it ECHOES FROM THE VEIL. We're going to learn a lot more about the Veil and readers will discover a lot more history about certain characters. I am very much hoping for it to come out in 2018, but so much depends on editing and what my publisher wants to do. I definitely don't want to rush the book, and I want to make sure I'm putting out the best book I can for my readers. I'm hoping that a 2018 timeline will work for that. I'm very excited to get this book out there! (less)

Yes, there is absolutely going to be a third book, and I'm in the process of writing it now. Please look for it possibly early next year. There is definitely so much more to this story, and I can't wait to share it with you. (less)

Cover Reveal!

I’m so excited to show you my cover for ECHOES FROM THE VEIL! This is the 3rd book in my series, the Aisling Chronicles, and the final installment of the trilogy.


I’m absolutely thrilled with this cover. When I worked with Entangled Publishing about it, I didn’t provide a lot of input, but I did ask for both Elizabeth and Finn to be on the cover for this final book in the series. I’m so glad they w

“You are a good person, and something terrible happened to you. Forgive yourself for the rage, the bitterness. It’s all right to feel that, but if you push it down, sweep it away, it will only grow. Look at it. Confront it. Love it, even. It’s the only way you will survive this. At least, that’s the only way the good in you will survive.” The”

“I had sworn off jerks and other variations of inappropriate men for New Year’s, and I had only faltered once. Well, maybe twice. I would never know for sure what happened after the fall mixer with what’s-his-name? Steve?”
Colleen Halverson, Through the Veil

“On one of our hunting trips, my dad once pointed out the tree rings of a fallen oak tree, his finger tracing a long, dark fire scar amidst the neat pattern of concentric circles. He explained how the fire makes the bark stronger, how it was necessary for a tree’s long-term survival to endure a blaze. My anger burned black, a deep curving line etched into my armor, and I knew I would take my revenge. Immortality”
