Book Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah Maas So, I’m gonna preface this by saying that I would not put this book ANYWHERE near a teen shelf. This is solidly New Adult, which is  17 / 18+   –  basically a heavy duty (HEAVY DUTY) PG-13, more likely soft R rating. But here’s the […]

Music as Author Muse

I’ve begun sharing my playlist with my husband. It was probably a mistake, because now he thinks I have a split personality based on my music choices. For kicks and giggles, I scrolled through my playlist for the past Undertow books and, well, yes – it appears I’m musically bi-polar. My musical preferences range wildly, but […]

Saying Farewell

Someone once said that, to say goodbye to a character that has been part of you for years, is like bidding farewell to a piece of you. As I write the last book in Eila’s story, I know it’s true. I have no doubt that when I’m done with the final book in the UNDERTOW […]

The Scarlet Trilogy by A.C. Gaughen

I have a bit of a confession to make: I owned Scarlet for over a year before I pulled it off my bookshelf and set to reading it. And I bought Lady Thief  before I ever read Scarlet because I was a sucker for the idea behind the story and the breathtaking covers. But I still […]

Book Review: Unconditional by Cherie Hudson

Unconditional by Cherie Hudson **This title is NEW ADULT and not appropriate for teen readers** Many thanks to Pan Macmillan for offering me an ARC of this title. Their generosity has no impact on my review. I enjoyed this title and burned through it in one day. It’s a light-hearted semi-fairy tale of a young […]

Why the agony of writing for teens is worth it

Writers can become burned out. I don’t mean the hyperventilating, “OMG I have no story ideas!” type of burn out. I mean the grind of the words, the constant push to out-write your last book, the stiff necks, the time crunches, and the piecemealing of a life outside of your characters’ worlds. You try to balance […]
