I was born and raised in Ohio, and I currently live three minutes away from the house I spent my teenage years in. My first novel, Witch Eyes, will be released on September 8th.
Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?
Belle Dam is a town full of secrets, and divided by a feud that’s been inherited through the generations. When Braden, a boy who suffers under a power known as the witch eyes arrives, he learns that the feud is supernatural in origin, and both sides desire his power. They’ll use anyone, manipulate everyone; and even attempt murder, in order to possess him.
What should readers know before stepping into your world?
I’m fairly sarcastic, and that is something that I think comes out a lot in my writing. Also, Braden is gay, and the book features a romance.
Will this be your first time attending BEA or are you a veteran? Any advice for those who are going for the first time?
This is my first event of any kind to attend, so I’m a total newbie. My master plan is to find people who’ve done this before and become their best friend so they’ll tell me what to expect.
Are you speaking on any panels during BEA? Are there any you are looking forward to? What panels are you planning on attending?
I’m attending the Teen Author Carnival, which takes place the Monday night before BEA, along with a number of other YA authors, and speaking on one of the panels there. Other than that, I’m hoping to attend the Young Adult Editor’s BUZZ panel on Tuesday.
If someone wanted to meet up with you at BEA, who should they look for?
Well, I’m doing a signing at the Flux book on Tuesday morning at 9:30, so that would be the best place to start. Other than that, I expect it will be three days of me clinging on to whatever group of authors/bloggers that will have me.
