About the Author
I'm a Pisces born on February 29th. I've wanted to write since the second grade, and I am forever grateful I had parents who never told me I couldn't. They encouraged me to write, but also told me I should get a day job that would pay the bills, since writing isn't always lucrative. So, I grew up with a practical view of writing. I never did it for money. Don't get me wrong, I like being paid for doing what I love, but I would do it anyway. I have to write. It's a compulsion. I know for a fact I would be mightily depressed if I didn't write; if I didn't continue to create characters, stories, magic in the most ordinary circumstances. 
 
I am an intense reader, escaping from mundane life and living vicariously through characters. I write what I love to read, which is escapist stories. I'm not ashamed of that. I read and write to escape. And sometimes I draw to escape, though I haven't been doing that for awhile.
 
I know not everyone will like my stories and characters. That's fine. I'm still growing as a writer and as a person, so I know not every book will be perfection. I like to read critical reviews, however, to see if they have any suggestions or valid points to make about the story. But if the review is just to be cruel, then I just roll my eyes and move on. No one is going to stop me from writing. No one is going to scare my muse away. 
 
I'm a huge fan of mythology. Any and all mythology and I also love creating my own. I also love dragons (who doesn't?), and other mythological creatures. I'm a big fan of the paranormal (ghosts, demons, and angels), and classic literature (Frankenstein, Dracula, Jane Austen..."classic" varies). I was an English Literature major in college, can you tell?
 
So enjoy! And if you love my books (or just like), please leave reviews so other people can find the magic I'm trying to bring to the world!

Trystan is an unchosen angel—shunned by society, bullied, and without a future. In a hidden well, Trystan discovers a carving of a dragon, who were once the commanders of demons and now believed extinct. But Trystan learns the carving doesn’t depict an ordinary dragon. Stories tell that millennia ago, the great dragon Asagoroth and his demon army nearly conquered the three realms but was killed by the five elders. The powerful angels combined their life forces to cast a spell, sacrificing their lives.

But history is full of falsehoods. The five elders only managed to imprison the dragon, and Asagoroth had cast his own spell—one of releasement. It only needs the blood of an angel to liberate him from his cage….

Asagoroth, enemy of angels, conqueror of realms, is free. But even as the angels prepare for war, the great dragon surprises them with an ultimatum: hand over the angel who awakened him or face annihilation.

Wow. I don't know what else to say except, Wow!

The moment I saw the cover, I was intrigued and, after reading the blurb, I was desperate to read this story. I bought it on pre-order, but had to wait a few days to get other things done and, honestly, nothing was harder to do than avoid this book to read another in its place. Now I know my first instinct was right.

I really don't want to give away too much of the plot, because this is a story that you need to read to understand.

To start with, this is pretty much a creation story with a twist. I really loved the names and history of the Angels and Demons that were used in the plot; the way that they were just a little different to what we know. It added a sense of familiarity and yet, uniqueness, to the story.

The fact that the Angels were raised in a sort of school environment, complete with bullies and the Unchosen (those without purpose in life) was very different to all other Angel stories I've read. The thought of an Angel outcast, bullies and a connection between Angels and Demons, was so clever and original that I was hooked right from the first page. The addition of a Dragon being a Demon leader was all amazingly realistic, creative and really made sense.

As for characters, I really loved Trystan, Asagoroth and, of course, Annalise.

Beyond that, I don't want to say anything else. Read it and you'll love it.
