EEK it’s been too long Blog and Give Away

Let me start with an apology to my readers, I’m sorry. 

Now that’s out of the way, let me tell you why I haven’t written a blog in months. Because I have a life, nope, that’s a lie. Because I have better things to do than write all day. Uh no there certainly isn’t, that’s a lie too. I’ve been writing books. Yes, that’s the one.

When last I blogged, I was rewriting my first novel. Today, I’m working on my third. Yippy, I hope you’ll all forgive my absence, but please always know if I’m not writing a blog – I am most certainly checked out of the real world and lost somewhere in make-believe, inventing new worlds and mysterious beings for you to lose yourself in another day. Think of my absence today as an investment in your future reading pleasure. 

Here’s a taste of what I’m working on…

YA: SEEK is about 17 yr old Keira who posses as her older sister to join a secret governmental agency, SEEK, as a huntress of shadows known as, khayal. Every khayal seen from the corner of her eye, every feeling as if someone is watching her, every whisper of wind in the trees that's a khayal and it's her job to kill them. She's good at being a SEEK agent, her life is focused and controlled and she's working toward a goal. Until Jonathan Steed saunters in, with his brilliant green eyes and shows her what the khayal really are and what SEEK's true identity and motivation are. Bitten by khayal or bitten by love, either way, her heart isn't safe and neither is she, now she's her own enemy. SEEK has kidnapped her family and every government agency is after her, teaming up with Jonathan and the khayal is the only way she'll survive. 

YA: ToR Sa CRADLE OF DECEPTION is about 16 yr old Promise who is trapped on an Island in the future with no power or technology, until she finds the Keys to get off the Island. Her journey not only leads her to a computer named Monster that gives her power over earths elements, but it leads her to love. Torn between faithful and lovable Takoda's offer of a steady and comfortable life and Boadan's exciting passion, she makes her choice. Her plan goes horribly wrong when she discovers the man she married is Monster's eternal enemy, the Shadow Rider.[Book 1of 4]

MG: JӒCKӒBY SKӒR AND THE INHERITANCE OF OSLO is about 12 yr old Jackaby, who thinks he's too old for his imaginary friend. But Nada won't go away. She can't, because she's an eight-foot, gray, squishy, farting, burping, and snorting Norwegian Troll who turns invisible at will. Jackaby's life goes inside out and he's running for his real life to Norway, aboard a cruise ship with his best friend Tenny and his obnoxious Troll.
