A look behind The Hunter’s Moon:
YA fantasy romance, The Hunter's Moon (Book 1, the Secret Warrior series) took years percolating in my mind before I wrote a word. Although the setting is present day in our Virginia Mountains, I’ve drawn on my knowledge of colonial America, Native Americans, particularly the Shawnee, the mountain people, herbal lore, and my fascination with fantasy. Although The Hunter's Moon is my first venture into the young adult genre, I'm an award-winning, multi-published author in historical, paranormal, and time travel romance. I was inspired to create this new series partly by my teenage nieces and younger daughter. We've watched a lot of YA movies and TV series together and had book discussions, during which they urged me to take the plunge.
Living in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia surrounded by mountains veiled in mist and mystery lends itself well to creating the characters for The Hunter’s Moon and the stories that will follow. Some characters and creatures are based on lore I've learned. Others appeared to me, as characters have a way of doing. A great deal of research and intuition went into this series. Book 2, Curse of the Moon, will come out a little later this year, release date TBD. The Secret Warrior series is published by The Wild Rose Press who signed me to write novella length stories that will release more quickly and be available in eBook format only. I have discovered they are every bit as challenging to write as full novels.
Romance grows and mystery deepens as an unlikely but close-knit pack of friends share fantastic adventures together.
"This is a series with a whole bunch of potential and I can't wait to read more. Definitely recommended for all fans of YA/Paranormal." ~Merissa for YA Insider
