world of half-truths. She knows she’s an Elder but has no idea what that means.
Her father reminds her daily that she must maintain control but he refuses to
explain why. Even worse, she’s betrothed to the prince of the Immortals and she
doesn’t even know his name.
last thing Amelia expects is to find her best friend in a cheeky Southern girl
and to fall for a self-assured human who sees her for who she is and not what
duty is a thin one. As her power continues to increase exponentially and her
questions are slowly answered, Amelia must make the ultimate choice. The
question is, will her head or her heart win the battle?
I was born in Southeast Iowa, in a tiny town without much to do. I came
to love reading honestly, with a Mom that had an entire room devoted to books.
We read together until I could read alone, and then we often shared books. We
talked stories and favorite characters, even shared tears over the best ones. I
made friends who also loved books and we grew up with the likes of V.C.
Andrews, L.J. Smith and Anne Rice.
I live in central Iowa now, and went into marketing because I could use my love
of words and head for branding. I married a guy who hates fiction and loves
video games, but we compromise with great movies (often my book adaptations)
and live music. We have two crazy cats that constantly walk across my key board
or curl into my lap for naps while I write.
I love chocolate peanut butter and mint chocolate chip ice cream and Sauvignon
Blanc wine, though not at the same time. I always have music of some sort on
and someday I’ll convince my husband to move to the ocean. Someday.
