Black Dawn started when I was fourteen, and the original manuscript I wrote for my cousin's sixteenth birthday. Being my best friend, she was the first person to ever hear the ideas behind the book, and we would literally talk for hours about the world. For a long time I didn't revisit the story, but almost ten years later I was talking to my husband about it, and we pulled it out and I starting rewriting the story the next day. Two years later here we are, Black Dawn being brought to life. This story I hold super close to my heart, the idea behind this book born from years of endless dreaming with my two favorite people, Jess Kovacs and Matt McCartney, of other worlds, magic, some Irish mythology mixed in.
Defiant was more recently, last summer I was out walking our dachshunds Link and Lola on a balmy night with my husband. It was a weird night, with fog patches throughout the city, and created the most eerie atmosphere. Matt and I got talking about ghosts and supernatural happenings, and what we thought about the subject. In the middle of our conversation I got one name stuck in my mind and this was: Callaway Lark.
Defiant was born in that second, I couldn't get the story out of my head. The story I'm very excited to share with everyone, it involves Callaway Lark a psychic in a world where supernatural happenings and practices aren't accepted, or believed in. Without spoiling to much, I will leave it at that for right now :) (less)

The first setting I pictured in Black Dawn was an undercover Rebellion site, that back in the day was also a government facility as a school for people with "abilities." From there I drew a map for myself, and blocked off different parts of the story line and from there the world grew into different kingdoms and borders in Kiero. In book one a lot of the setting takes place in the Academy (Rebellion site) and the Adair's Kingdom ( the Mad King.) This series is fun for me to write, it's in third person and each chapter rotates through my main characters so especially in book two I explore different cultures and places further in the world as each character's storyline develops :) I hope this answers your question!!

"The cover is up!!! I need it! NEED IT!

Love the title and so ecstatic it will come out a week earlier!!

Even though this will be released just a month later, at the end of October I might add, it is still torturous as all hell to wait. Lol!
