“It’s not you, it’s me.”
“I just need space.”
“I need a break.”
“It’s time to move on.”
“You have body hair that rivals the largest of buffalo.”
…to no avail. Fortunately, Finn and Stasia weren’t buying my feeble attempt to tuck them away into a traditional trilogy. After weeks of sulking and unsuccessfully trying to squelch the thundering ache in my heart created by their absence, I knew I agreed with them. Their story is too compelling, too enchanting, too extensive to contain within the pages of only three books! So without further adieu, I am happy to announce (cue the confetti, balloons, and tambourine playing monkeys)…The Daughters of the Sea TRILOGY will now be the Daughters of the Sea SERIES!!!
That’s right people!! It’s NOT over!! What began as a simple idea now has a life of its own and the main characters are in the driver’s seat (they make terrible back seat drivers, so it’s best for everyone really). I plan on releasing two more books for the series in 2013! You’ll get a glimpse into Phoebe and Willow’s pasts as well as enter the spellbinding world of the Nereids with Stasia! The dark magic of the Sons of Daimon will come to light as Finn fights to understand his destiny and the haunting revelations he can’t escape. You’ll follow Stasia as she learns that her own prophecy has only just begun. Can their love withstand the test of time? Where their journeys will take them, only the tide will tell…
I am a southern belle at heart with a crazy streak that desperately tries to escape at every opportunity. I love all things nostalgic, rustic, and quirky. I've been told I see the world through rose-colored glasses, but I prefer to think of them as kaleidoscope glasses - swirling and morphing reality into something I can digest (who hasn't pretended those pasty lima beans were really kiwi strawberry jelly beans?).
I am the author of the DAUGHTERS OF THE SEA trilogy, which includes FORSAKEN, AWAKEN, and CHOSEN (Winter 2012). I love all books, but really enjoy writing young adult, paranormal romances. I've loved to write for as long as I can remember. My first published work was my poem RED in second grade (you guessed it - it was a poem about the color red - life altering, I know) that won me 5 gold stars and a spot in my elementary school's poetry book. That's when my addiction to the written word officially began. I was the only kid in fifth grade that actually enjoyed diagramming sentences. Go ahead and laugh – it’s okay.
When I'm not writing I'm making jewelry, painting, drinking sweet tea, watching the discovery channel, or going on random adventures in the mountains of North Carolina with my amazing husband. I graduated from Appalachian State University and dream of becoming a full time novelist.
