P. J. Hoover first fell in love with Greek mythology in sixth grade thanks to the book Mythology by Edith Hamilton. After a fifteen year bout as an electrical engineer designing computer chips for a living, P. J. decided to take her own stab at mythology and started writing books for kids and teens. P. J. is a member of THE TEXAS SWEETHEARTS & SCOUNDRELS. When not writing, P. J. spends time with her husband and two kids and enjoys practicing Kung Fu, solving Rubik's cubes, and watching Star Trek.

Hi Black Moon! Thank you so much for reading TUT and I am so thrilled that you loved the book!!!
I am definitely hoping to continue the story so we can all find out what happens to Gil! Right now it's up to the publisher to decide so fingers crossed that they give the go-ahead for a sequel :)

Thank you so much for asking!

Hi Abraham! Thanks for asking! I do travel all over Texas. The best way to get me there is to talk to your librarian and ask her to contact me for a school visit. I'd love to come visit El Paso!

“You are the most dangerous kind of female the world can ever know. You carry the seeds for your own destruction and the destruction of everyone who loves you. And a great many will love you for your beautiful face for your seductive body; but you will fail them all because you will believe they all fail you first. You are an idealist of the worst kind - the romantic idealist. Born to destroy and self destruct.”
V.C. Andrews, Fallen Hearts
