Four Sexy Fae Princes. A Changeling Fae. A Secret that could end them all.
When Cassia’s wedding is ruined by a monster attack, her whole life changes. Destined for the dull and uneventful life of a Baron’s wife, Cassia always dreamed of more. She never thought it would come in the form of three sexy fae princes.
When she accidentally uses magic, Cassia discovers that she’s not human. She’s a changeling, a fae hidden in the human world. She no longer belongs in the human realm, but she won’t survive on her own in Faerie.
Now, her only hope is the three sexy fae princes who saved her life on her wedding day. On the run from the monsters that attacked her, Cassia must help the princes hunt them down. Her life depends on them, and by the time this is over, they might need her as much as she needs them.
Court of Secrets is a full-length Reverse Harem Fantasy Novel
Book 1 of 4
My story is probably similar to a lot of other writers out there. As a kid, I was creative, imaginative, and loved to write. I’d write scripts for plays and make my sisters act them out. I got excited about the writing prompts for standardized tests in elementary school. I started writing my first (unfinished) novel in 5th grade. Then started another one in middle school. For a long time, I was a closet writer. I didn’t tell anybody that I had a hard drive full of abandoned stories. After years of not finishing anything, I finally took the plunge and started taking writing, and myself as a writer, seriously. My first novel, Heir of Illaria, published January 23, 2017. Book 2 is right around the corner. It’s gone from closet hobby to full on addiction. Thankfully, I have a wonderfully spportive husband who doesn’t look at me like I’m crazy when I talk about my characters as if they’re real.
1. What is on your nightstand?
Daylight alarm clock, chap stick, empty teacup from last night’s tea, and a lamp. (There is a huge pile of books stacked on the floor next to my night stand topped off with my Kindle Paperwhite – My TBR list is never ending).
2. What author would you totally fan?
J.K. Rowling is top of my list, I’d probably be unable to speak if I actually met her in real life.
3. What makes you cringe?
People who talk during movies at the theater.
4. Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
Never. I do try to make a loose outline with plot points I want to hit throughout the story. How I reach them doesn’t matter. I make that part up as I go. Though, I don’t always plot. It depends on the book. Quite often, I’ll write the first few chapters to get a feel for where I’m going then take a break to write a loose outline.
5. Is there a word you love to use?
There are several! Some words I use too often and get annoyed when I read them while editing – like “just” or “realized” – and I have to cut them down to eliminate some of them. Other words I find great joy in adding. Lately, words like “lingering”, “delicious”, and “luxurious”. Mostly, I enjoy adding adjectives – lovely descriptive words that my critique group would cringe at.
