Thank you Sue for inviting me to post on Books, Books, the Magical Fruit!
Hello Readers – I’m a Young Adult Fantasy Writer and Reader. I wanted to do something different with this post and so I thought I’d answer three questions, post two books I’m dying to read and give you a sneak peak into my newest release – Sworn to Raise!
THREE Questions to Answer
You run into a bookstore, where do you go first?

Sworn to Raise - Coming March 15, 2013
Seventeen-year-old Ciardis has grown up in poverty, a cleaner in a small vale on the outskirts of the kingdom. But beneath her kingdom’s seemingly idyllic surface lies a hidden secret. Whispers of an inept crown Prince are growing ever louder—intensified by the five year anniversary of the soulbond initiations.
Amidst scandalous whispers, Ciardis finds herself chosen to train for the Companion’s Guild. She leaves her home and sets off on a personal journey to become a Court Companion. A position she’d never thought possible for a lowly servant to obtain, she must prove that she has the skills to attract a Patron.
But she must master those skills quickly. If the legends are true, only Ciardis can harness the power to raise a Prince in an Imperial Court sworn to bring him down.
This sensational series debut melds intricate storylines with remarkable characters and unforgettable magic. Sworn To Raise is ideal for fans of Kristin Cashore, Michelle Sagara, and Maria Snyder.
