T.L. McDonald lives in Ohio with her husband, her three wonderful children, and her little miniature pinscher Lola (who thinks she's a big beast.) When she's not spending time with her family or friends, she can often be found staring at the computer screen as she writes new material (okay sometimes she's actually just surfing her newsfeed on Facebook or Twitter), curled up with a good book, or occasionally binge watching an entire series on Netflix. Although T.L. has been writing since her childhood, Marked is her very first published novel and now that she's gotten this far, she has no plans of stopping. Nothing makes her happier than knowing she's put something out into the world for people to enjoy. ...more

We were on our way to her house when we saw something unexplainable in the sky. It was low, in the shape of a triangle, and had a bright white light on each corner. It wasn't moving, it was just hovering there. Then all of a sudden it broke off into three separate pieces and flew off in super speed in three different directions. It scared the crap out of us and we took off running as fast as we could until we reached her house. To this day, neither one of us can explain what we saw. (less)

The Mortal Instruments is one of my all time favorite series and I love the dynamic between the two main characters. They're both vulnerable and strong, and even though they had some pretty big obstacles to overcome, they still knew on some fundamental level, that they were meant to be. The second would be Patch and Nora from the Hush, Hush series. I love Hush, Hush just as much as The Mortal Instruments. I've probably read this entire series at least 4 times, if not more. I love the struggle of their relationship. From how hard Patch tries to deny what he feels so he can achieve the one thing he's after, to when he finally gives in and falls so hard he's willing to sacrifice everything if it means she stays safe.

Huge Fantasy & Sci-Fi Book Fair!



This year has been crazy—to say the least—and one thing that has helped me get through is the ability to escape into another world via reading. If you are like me, and need to escape the everyday world now and then (or know someone who does), I invite you to peruse through the 100+ books in this fair, and take yourself (or send someone else, as books make great gifts) on an adventure.
