Series Description:

Meet the ladies of the Svatura series: Ellie, Selene, Lila, and Adelaide.
One will come out of hiding to protect others from the fate she suffered. One will lead her people after being released from a hellish nightmare. One will try to start a new life only to discover that her path lies where it always has. And one will experience a loss so terrible that only oblivion can stop the pain.
Individually they are strong. But together these sisters of the heart are a force before whom even their most powerful enemies will tremble. However, that may not be enough. Is the key to their salvation power…or love? 
1. What made you want to be a writer?

You hear it often, that writers have voices in their heads, their characters telling their stories. It’s true. I’m the same way. I daydream stories slipping characters into situations, inspired by all sorts of things around me. The only way to get them out of my head is to put them on paper. I’m always curious to see how their stories end. 

2. Who is your favorite author?

So hard to name just one. In the paranormal romance realm Rebecca Zanetti and Heather Killough-Walden are two of my favs. In contemporary romance Lucy Monroe and Kerry Allynetop the list. Historical romance would have to be Johanna Lindsey. 

3. What is the name of the last book you read.

Broken Bear (Grey Bear Series) by T.S. Joyce

4. Tell us about yourself in 3 words?

mother, writer, geek

5. What is your favorite activity?

So hard to narrow it down. Writing/reading are probably top of the list. I’m a huge movie fanatic as well. Making my kids laugh – the best sound in the world. Skydiving – I don’t any more but I miss it.

6. If your book could be made into a movie? Which actors would you have play the main two characters?

Ellie Aubrey would be played by Willa Holland (
Alex Jenner would be played by Colin Egglesfield(

7. Who is your favorite character in your book?

In Blue Violet, my favorite character is probably Ellie. She’s smart, upbeat, confident and brave. She’s also human and not perfect. I had a lot of fun writing her.

8. What's in your TBR ( to be read) pile?

Oh my gosh, too many to keep up with. I’m reading Heather Killough-Walden’s Samael next. After that I have a huge backlist—some are friend’s books (The Indispensable Wife by Phillipa Lodge), some are coming out soon and I know I want to read them (The Bad Boy of Butterfly Harbor by Anna J. Stewart, Shift Work by J.C. McKenzie). And the list keeps growing!

9. What are 3 of your pet peeves?

People who don’t smile back.
People who stop in the middle of a walkway at crowded places or events- they’re blocking the way and oblivious about it. So rude! Slow drivers in the fast lane. 

10. What's your favorite ( cats or dogs), ( coffee or tea), and what's your favorite food?
I’m a dog person (though I’ve been known to pet a cat if they’re nice.)
Tea – but sweet southern tea is my preference
And I am a chocoholic for favorite food.

About the Book:
When fairy tales turn into nightmares…
Ellie Aubrey has spent most of her unnaturally long life hiding her extraordinary abilities from the world. On the run from the shapeshifting wolves who murdered her family, she risks discovery in order to secretly watch over another group of similarly gifted people, determined they won’t suffer the same fate.
Alex Jenner has come home to protect his family from an unknown danger lurking in the woods. Suspicious of the new girl in town, he challenges Ellie in ways that will spark one of two possible outcomes: they’ll spontaneously combust, or she’ll lose control of the one power she’s fought so hard to contain.
In this fairy tale, the dragon the prince must slay is also the princess who holds his heart.


Alex gave her an adorable lopsided grin, and her heartbeat picked up in response. “I also just finished a run.”
“In this weather?” Ellie teased. She was rewarded with a deep chuckle that danced up and down her spine.
“Hey, maybe we could run together some time,” he suggested. Ellie gave silent thanks that he hadn’t noticed her reaction to him.
“Maybe….” Ellie nodded and smiled to take the sting out of what could’ve been perceived as a rejection.
Suddenly he leaned forward and touched her arm lightly. “You do that a lot, you know.”
Trying not to pull away from his touch, it was Ellie’s turn to raise her eyebrows in surprise. “Do what?”
“Answer with something vague.” He sat back, letting her breathe normally again.
“Do I?” Ellie feigned surprise. Impressive. Most people don’t even notice when I’m giving vague answers.
“There you go again!”

“Huh.” Ellie grimaced and tried a different approach. “I don’t even notice I’m doing it. I guess I don’t talk about myself much in general.” Especially to hot guys who have no clue who I really am.
“Fair enough.” Alex let her off the hook with good-natured grace. “So back to that run?”
Ellie laughed. Clearly she wasn’t going to get away with keeping her distance. Not that she wanted to. She was just trying to avoid further complication. And Alex Jenner had the potential to be a rather major complication

Only oblivion can stop her pain.
Adelaide Jenner feels nothing… she is completely numb inside. Her fated love abandoned her and joined their enemy. On that day her sister turned off all Adelaide’s emotions in order to save her from a heartbreak that could push her over the edge of sanity. But the great power she claims, wielded without compassion or love, can only lead to pain.
Nate Pierce believes Adelaide used her extraordinary powers to deceive him all these years. So he destroyed a relationship he thought to be false and hungers for revenge. Now, Nate serves Maddox, unaware that his new leader is using him as a pawn in a bid to enslave or kill all Svatura.
The only hope of finally defeating Maddox is for Adelaide and her sisters to combine their growing powers against him. But the key to a Svatura’s power is the heart, and Adelaide is still missing hers.
