Hayden Wand has been writing stories since before she can remember, but only decided to pursue being an author after she realized her childhood dream jobs were surprisingly unattainable. (Why is it so hard to get a gig as an international jewel thief or a deadly-spy-slash-private-detective these days?)

Her novella “The Wulver’s Rose” was published in Rooglewood Press’s FIVE ENCHANTED ROSES anthology, and she is also the author of two more fairy tale retellings: WITH BLOSSOMS GOLD (2017), and JANUARY SNOW (Coming Winter 2019). She lives in South Carolina with her family.

It's not worn because it's so old, but rather because I loved it so much that I read it all the time. I related to the characters because they seemed to understand my own problems and I found that encouraging. If someone finds Hidden Pearls- or any of my books- encouraging in that way through life's physical and spiritual problems, then I think that's the highest thing I can aspire to.(less)
Hayden Wand Yes! I'm actually in the process of formatting the book for kindle, and it should be available within the week!

“but sir that image”

What is art?

Art is a huge part of my life. Writing is a form of art, of course. But I’m also a highly visual person. I like pretty things. I like to surround myself with things make me feel happy, feed my soul, and uplift my attitude.

[image error]

What is both so frustrating and so appealing about art is how subjective it is. We all have an idea that there is something that makes “good” art...

I think I liked this one better the 2nd time around. Not sure if I should up the rating, though, since it *is* slow moving and the 2nd and 3rd books are much, much better. I'm planning to re-read both of them soon, by the way, and t

Deborah O'Carroll
Deborah O'Carroll is 33% done with Cress: Current mood: appreciating water (because: deserts) and wishing I wasn't listening to a Sahara story during Texas summer (because whyyyyy. Moar heat. Nooo).

Thorne = THE GREATEST. <3
Cress = precious bean
Kai = still Permanently Stressed
Cinder and Erland = snark-off
Jacin = mysterious & AWESOME
Wolf = going to be SO mad when he wakes up. XD (Please wake up, Wolf.)

SO MUCH DESERT.

“Do you think God truly meant for us to keep Him locked in the church? Is He our Sunday pocket watch we only pull out for weddings and funerals and church services? He wishes for us to think about Him wherever we are. And a voice singing His praises at a ball is far less irreverent than a stone-cold heart sitting in a pew on Sunday morning.”
Hayden Wand, Hidden Pearls

“She hated colds. There was nothing romantic about them. Fainting spells were dramatic, life-threatening illnesses were interesting, and a handsome prince could always rescue you in the case of a twisted ankle, but all colds produced were puffy eyes and a red nose.”
Hayden Wand, Hidden Pearls

“You’re dead,” Amyot said, bearing down upon Benedict.

Benedict flashed an exhausted grin. “I don’t think Death likes me,” he said breathlessly. “We keep running in to each other before deciding to go our separate ways.”
