Shelly is a NEW YORK TIMES & USA TODAY bestselling author from a small town and loves everything about the south. She hoards paperbacks, devours sweet tea, searches year-round for candy corn, loves to site-see in the new areas they travel to with her husband's job, and adores reading but doesn’t have much time to these days with all the characters filling her head begging to come out.

Her own books happen by accident and she revels in the writing and imagination process. She doesn't go anywhere without her notepad for fear of an idea creeping up and not being able to write it down immediately, even in the middle of the night, where her best ideas are born.

It's a spin-off from the last book, but Maggie, Caleb, and the family are still very much present. Some people still don't know that I've already released a novella to tie the old series and the new spin-off together, Consequence! It has 2 chapters of UC in the back, so grab it!

There is no release date for Undeniably Chosen. As soon as I get closer I'll let you know. You can check my website for details.Thanks!(less)

I have some things going on that are hindering me from writing as much as I'd like, but I'm going as fast as I can. I promise that as soon as I get close enough to the end of the book for me to feel comfortable to give you guys a date, I will. Right now, I'm a little over half way, but I'm trying to book it. No pun intended. I'm sorry. I know this sucks. It sucks for me, too. I wish I was done already.

Happy New Year. I will work as quickly as I can to get Ava and Seth to you!

UNDENIABLY FATED ♾📚


“Can I heal you now? That we bonded?” I asked and tried to push whatever comfort and healing I could her way.

“It doesn’t really work like that. It has to be something that happened after we’ve ascended for you to be able to heal me. Things from last year don’t count. But it’s okay, I promise. I’ve grown to understand—w

Quotes by Shelly Crane  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“You don’t love people for what they can give you. You don’t love them because of what they do for you or how good you make them look. Love is blind, love does not boast, love is not vain.”
Shelly Crane, Significance

“I saw something in you that I couldn't live without. I chose you, inside of me, and you chose me. It's not one sided, it only works when both people choose the other. You are perfect for me in every way.”
Shelly Crane, Significance

“Because you are my significant, my soul mate. And I'm yours.”
Shelly Crane, Significance

“Breathing is...difficult at the moment.

Breathing is a necessity for you humans, and if kissing you causes you to have difficulties, I might have to refrain from doing it again.”
S.L. Naeole

“And now I’m looking at you,” he said, “and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before – bits of myself to the Lightwoods, to Isabelle and Alec, but it took years to do it – but, Clary, since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

“I rested my chin on my shoulder, not quite fully looking at his face. "They don't disgust you?" I whispered, my voice shaking.
He rested one hand on my other shoulder and the other on my arm and leaned forward, gently pressing his lips into the center of my brand.
"Nothing about you could disgust me," he whispered against my neck.”
Keary Taylor, Branded

“Why does everyone worship them? I mean, they're beautiful but..." I shrugged. "Lots of people in this world are beautiful."
"They're popular because they're cheerleaders," he said.
I rolled my eyes. "What is it with this town and cheerleaders?”
