Excerpt
He lunged at me faster than I could blink, and sure enough, I was knocked to the floor as he smashed my face in. Yeah, that was going to hurt in the morning. Trying my best to regain my strength, I flipped my attacker over on his back and he smiled up at me.

“You’re getting better,” Philip replied.
I smiled back. “I told you to not go easy on me.”
And of course, he didn’t. Grabbing hold of my hair, he flipped me over his body and managed to stand up. Now I was the one on my back—again—and I was really beginning to feel useless. Yes, he said I was getting better, but he could take me on and win every single time. Getting better and winning were two completely different things.
I stood up and sighed, trying to fix my hair so it didn’t look like the haystack it probably was. Philip stood there, somehow managing to look absolutely gorgeous with his short black hair and piercing green eyes. His smile widened when he saw me trying to compose myself. “I never said we were done.”
“You don’t need to,” I shot back, feeling embarrassment sweep through me, but I kept the sarcastic smile on my face. “I’m saying we’re done for the day because clearly I still can’t take you on, so what’s the point in trying?”
His seductive smile fell flat. “You won’t get better if you just give up.”
“I don’t get any better by trying,” I said, then added, “but I will. Just give me a little more time.”

Author Interview
Tell us about yourself.
I am currently a senior in high school and will be graduating in June. I just recently moved to Nevada and I just finished writing my fourth book, and have started my fifth.

Where do you like to write?
I like to write at the kitchen table. If I write in my bed, I’ll fall asleep!

What is your process in creating a story-line or factious worlds? Do you use aides, outlines, etc...?
Most of the time a story will just fall into my head and I know basic plot points. Strangely, I did an outline for The Forbidden Darkness Chronicles because there are a lot of secrets and mysteries I needed to know answers to prior to writing them

Who is your favorite character in this particular story and why?
My favorite character in Shadow People is Kadin because I gave him a more relevant role. I also like Hayden because I found a way to incorporate him into the story more.

Are you presently working on any other projects?
Right now I’m writing the third book in The Forbidden Darkness Chronicles, titled Fiery Passion. I’m planning on a summer 2016 release for that. I also have a contemporary young adult book I just finished writing that is planned to come out in March.
