At the age of sixteen, Abby is undergoing major household changes. Her mom is getting ready to remarry and her new step-brother is driving her insane. She is just trying to keep herself busy with school and her part-time job when a most deliciously handsome stranger moves to her little seaside town and won’t leave her alone.
New arrival Wilhelm is unlike any other student at Abby’s school. His emerald eyes and tattooed body don’t truly reveal what he really is: a creature emerged from thousands of miles underground, seeking revenge, treasure, and a key that once belonged to an old enemy – a key Abby wears suspended from a chain around her neck. Why she has it is a mystery that Wilhelm will need to solve, and fast, in order to defeat a powerful mortal adversary.
As an attraction between Abby and Wilhelm develops, more creatures like Wilhelm are drawn from beneath the ground to Abby’s town; wreaking havoc as they offer Abby’s classmates the fulfillment of their deepest desires. Will Abby and her new family survive as a game of magical warfare is unleashed? Her ability to reverse Wilhelm’s bargain depends on it.
What does your writing space look like?
I have a bedroom/guest-room I’ve turned into my writing office. I try to keep the whole room and my writing area clean. The messiest thing I have is a note pad of multiple story notes and ideas; next to it there is a picture of my family, and a bird of paradise plant. I have a very small silver plate frame from TBN, etched into it is an image of God and his earthly family.
What is your favorite part of the writing process?
My favorite part is when a manuscript is on it’s fourth or fifth, maybe even a seventh or eighth draft, and as I’m going over it a cover for the novel is finally being created. It gives me a sense that the final product is coming together.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing.
When I’m not writing or working at my news station job I like to exorcise, study different biblical topics, get together with my friends usually while eating great food, go on dates, and be around my family.
What would you be doing if you weren’t an author?
I’ve been writing novels since the third grade so, I considered myself an un-published author, but still an author, even then; so if I never had a yearning to write, I’d probably be an entirely different person by this point. I also, in addition to being a published author now, work at a news station behind the scenes, doing both things keeps me busy.
What are you working on right now?
I’m finishing a new contemporary romance and it has actually been the hardest novel I’ve ever written because of some of the main character’s deeper subject matter; it’s also the steamiest thing I’ve ever written so I’ll be really excited and nervous once it’s finally out there. Get ready to blush readers if you happen to ever read it ;-).
