Heather Sunseri was raised on a tiny farm in the smallest of towns in thoroughbred horse country near Lexington, Kentucky. After high school, she attended Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, and later graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in accounting. Always torn between a passion for fantasy and a mind for the rational, it only made sense to combine her career in accounting with a novel-writing dream.

Heather now lives in a different small town on the other side of Lexington with her two children, and her husband, Mike, the biggest Oregon Duck fan in the universe. When she’s not writing or working as a CPA, she spends her time tormenting her daughter’s cat, Olivia, and loving on her son’s Golden Retriever, J

Hi, Sheenah! Thank you! I'm so happy you're enjoying the series.

The Mindspeak series as told from Lexi Mathews' point of view is a trilogy. However, I am currently working on a spinoff novel - a standalone. This novel will be told in dual points of view from Kyle's POV and from a new character's POV. This novel will be a continuation of the Mindspeak trilogy, and we might see an appearance from some of the characters from the trilogy.

Also, I have future plans for a few more stories of other characters from the Mindspeak series. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter so that you'll know when a new story is being released. http://heathersunseri.com/newsletter

I have just started a Pinterest board to help inspire me with the setting, characters, and special scenes for this 4th novel that has yet to be named. http://www.pinterest.com/heathersunse...

Thanks for the awesome question!(less)

True Crime: Murder, Mystery & Makeup by Bailey Sarian

[image error] Do murder, mystery AND makeup actually go together?

Let’s start with an admission of guilt: I am a true crime junkie!

Also, being a novelist and a consumer of stories, I adore good storytellers. And when you combine great storytelling, true crime, and fascinating entertainment… Count. Me. In.

I can’t even remember how I discovered Bailey Sarian, but I am so glad I did, and I want...

“I love you for your courage and your honestly. I love you for seeing things in me that aren't there.”

“Some really smart guy once told me that if I couldn't laugh through some of this shit, I'd cry.”

“That’s not what I… never mind. What are our fathers talking about, exactly?” “Oh, I’m sure they’re just catching up on old times.” Jack’s sarcasm lit the fuse of a slow-burning firecracker just beneath my skin. “They didn’t appear to be on that great of terms.” Understatement of the year. “Oh, you’d be surprised how much love and adoration was behind that punch.”

I have been an avid reader since I was 4. I grew up with my grandfather who was a Doctorate of English and a professor at the University of California Davis campus. Him and my mom cultivated my love for learning and reading. By the time I was 8 my grandfather had taught me the fine art of speed reading but still retaining details and comprehending what I was reading. I think the only thing I love just as much as reading is diagramming sentences. My kids and husband think I'm nuts. I am THAT person at church that goes through and corrects the bulletin.

I love all genres except I cannot yet wrap my head around the adult romance (or as I call them smut novels). I just recently got into reading a few memoirs and I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed them.

My first favorite author a tie between Beverly Cleary and Ann M. Martin. I hate to say I have 1 specific genre cause I don't really, I will read anything (even textbooks haha). I only hope to pass on my passion for reading to at least 1 of my 4 kids lol.

I will say I almost hate finding the first book in a series when they first come out, for the fact that I HATE waiting for the next book. I appreciate authors hard work cause as much as I love reading I was not gifted with an imagination of my own. Haha

Thank you so much, Natasha!! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! And thank you to your friend who recommended it! :) I'm glad you reached out to me here on Goodreads. I like to read in lots of different genres, so I totally understand trying something out of the norm. I'm super excited you gave Mindspeak a try.

Tasha Just want to say, I read your book mindspeak last night and loved it. It is not really my kind of normal read. It came recommended by a friend. Your writing style is fantastic and there was never a boring part, very fast paced. Thank you for your art!!
