Author Guest / March 1, 2018

Shhh… Don’t tell anyone, but writing has not been a life-long dream of mine. Oh sure, I wrote some in high school and loved it, but that was high school and I was pretty much forced to do it. No one really encouraged me to continue. But one day, not too many years ago, I began to wonder if I could write my own book. The following authors not only inspired me to try, they taught me a lot just by reading their awesome books. 1) Stephenie Meyer. Without her Twilight series (which I read four times!), I don’t know if I’d be writing today. Heck, I didn’t even know paranormal romance existed before that. Good vampires? It was crazy talk.

He said not to mention them, but he said nothing about meeting with them. That I can agree to. “I understand,” I whisper. “I won’t speak of them again.” He lowers his hand. “I only want you safe, Lark. If I’m to take you to Earth on my next trip, I want to have a whole, healthy daughter returned to her mother. Not a scarred one. Definitely not a dead one.” He’s not smiling at all, but somehow…
