A little about myself: I write young adult and middle-grade novels. I love finding new stories that keep me up late reading. While my favorite genre is fantasy, if the book is beautifully written with characters that come alive I’m all over it.

My young adult paranormal thriller/romances include CHALLENGING DESTINY and the Embrace Series: EMBRACE (bk1), HOLD TIGHT (bk2), and ENTWINED (bk3).

Damon challenges Elena to step outside her comfort zone and really think about her choices. Elena challenges Damon to make good choices and to be a better person. She sees the good in him and pushes him to let others see it too. They make each other better people and that’s what two people should do for each other.

Runner-ups (because it’s hard to pick just one):

In YA: Ron and Hermione. They are a great example of friends who grew to be more. They didn’t pretend to be something they weren’t. And, over the course of seven years, their friendship bloomed into a romance. Plus, I think they compliment each other: cautious, brains of the operation girl who saves her friends more than once throughout the series and funny, sometimes immature boy who is fiercely brave and an incredibly loyal friend.

In adult genre two came to mind: Bones and Cat from the Huntress series and Riley and Mac from the Three Sisters Island trilogy. Both are examples of strong female characters that hook up with equally strong male characters. The characters respect each other’s choices, yet they still challenge each other to step outside of his or her comfort zone. By doing so, their characters grow as people.

“Three stupid pieces of chocolate can't mean a lifetime away from the people I love." Tears streamed down my face, and my body trembled. "I don't want to forget what I have here."

"I won't let that happen to you."

"I want it. The candy," I whispered, ashamed to admit it out loud and scared to death because the ache in my stomach was a hunger I'd never felt before. "Even though I know what it is, I can't stop thinking about it.”
