A dying realm. 
The ancient evil of the Droch-ShĂșil has been unleashed. 
The Orchids have been silenced… but for how long? 

Daegan, elite of the Ferrishyn warrior tribe of Faeries, is charged with a mission to find the Sol-lumieth, a mysterious new power that could change the fate of all in the realm of Alandria. But he is conflicted by his purpose, and he cannot trust the motives of those he serves. He has too many questions and they must be answered. 

Kaeleigh, a girl abandoned as a small child just outside Missoula, Montana, is now 18. She is trying to discover who she is and where she belongs. In her heart, she feels she has family out there… somewhere. Desperate to unravel the mysteries of her past, she embarks on a journey that will forever change her along with her two best friends, Finn and Chel—who have secrets of their own.

It is FREE right now at all digital retailers!! Amazon


To start us off, can you sum up your first novel in a tweet, 140 characters or less?
Kaeleigh seeks answers to life-long questions never expecting them to come in the form of a handsome warrior Faerie from another realm.

What are you most proud of in this title?
Finishing it! lol I was 7mo pregnant when I started it and it took me four years to complete it after having the baby then going back to work full time and moving across the country 2x's!

Do you think your writing has changed since your debut? In what way?
Yes, absolutely! I feel I have grown in my technique, understanding of story structure, showing instead of telling, fluidity and pacing of the story, overall... EVERYTHING! 

If you could give one piece of advice to yourself when you were writing your first book, what would it be?
Make it a priority earlier. Don't let the obstacles and frustrations slow you down. 

What’s a question you’ve wanted to be asked in an interview? What’s your answer?
Is there anything significant about your debut? Why yes, thank you for asking ;) My husband who is a musician and a friend of his created an original soundtrack to go with my book!! How cool is that?!

If you thought this was fun, drop by the Facebook party going down on the 25th for more interviews with your favorite Fantasy authors as well as games and goodies galore!
