I’ve been told that all authors come to love their characters—that they become the Authors’ children. I’m no different. I love Maggie, despite what she put me through.

Victoria Dougherty Mazel tov, Chris.Well deserved. Love ya almost as much as I love rye whiskey. Almost.

Christopher Shields Hi, Kelleigh, that's fantastic. I can't wait to find out. Thanks so much for letting me know. By the way, I hope you've been enjoying The Steward. I thought about posting on the board that I'm a little over half way into the third book, The Aetherfae, and can't wait to release it in April. I'll keep my fingers crossed, and talk to you soon. Take care, and thanks again. Very exciting. It's a great group, and I am honored to be considered.

Kelleigh Christopher! You're in the running to be our next featured Author of the Month!

Just wanted to give you a heads up - Good Luck!

~Kelleigh @ Five Star Series
