ARCs have been sent out as well, and the feedback has been phenomenal! It’s blowing me away. Here are just a few pieces: You can read more reviews on Goodreads here! So what happens now?

In honor of International Fairy Tale Day, I thought I would surprise you all with the first two chapters of my upcoming debut YA fantasy, The Lost Legends, available March 18! But first, here are what some of the early readers are saying… Chapter 1 His feet slid across the loose gravel as he pulled himself around the corner of a building, nearly dropping the bag hanging from his shoulder.

There are less than six weeks until the release of The Lost Legends. SIX! That blows my mind… It is still hard to believe this is all happening. I have always loved books, but I never imagined I would one day be an author myself. All right, update time. I HAVE A MAP!! I am so, so excited.
