YA Local Author Event


Join us for an event with local YA authors M. Wednesday and Liz Delton!

Moon Reign: A Fallen Star

For hundreds of years, unicorns, their magic, and their origins have been condemned to legend throughout the galaxy. Until, an enigma reveals itself under a grievous spring moon. Nineteen-year-old Drystan and his dragon, Soren, witness what is said to be known as The Birth of a Unicorn the night prior to Soren's unwilling farewell. Though doubtful, Drystan's urgent need to reestablish his father's depleting health drives his faith towards the healing powers of star magic, the most dynamic force in the universe embedded in unicorns. With support and help from loyal friends, he determinedly leaves home in hopes to locate the newborn unicorn. However, they were not the only one to have witnessed such a phenomenon. Soren, a kingdom away and slowly sinking into heartsick devastation, endeavors to stop the new people in his life to abandon their obstinate desires in capturing the unicorn for themselves. Walks of life conflicting intent unintentionally cross in a race against all odds and the direction of the universe. And, Drystan's expedition of revival turns into a journey of self-discovery.

She is active in the writing community with the goals of spreading love, magic, and encouragement through her involvement. 




The Starless Girl (Realm of Camellia series #1)


Kira Savage can see glowing light in everything around her. When she moves to a new town after her mother dies, strange things start happening—even stranger than seeing the glowing light. When an enormous dog made of shadows chases her through a mysterious door in the woods, she finds herself in the Realm of Camellia, where she discovers the light she can see is magic. Stranded and terrified the shadow creature will return for her, Kira joins a temple for Light magic, where she will learn the honored tradition of wielding the magical light as a weapon. When more creatures made of darkness appear, Kira finds herself at the center of a decades-long feud, and a mysterious force tearing apart the realm. A trickster spirit, an evil king who can control storms, and powerful magic assail Kira in Camellia, leading her to question why exactly she wants to stay.


The Arcera Trilogy (Meadowcity, The Fifth City, A Rift Between Cities)


A new kind of Dystopian. The Four Cities of Arcera lived in peace behind their walls for a thousand years, until Governor Greyling of Skycity discovered a fifth city, with more technology than Arcera has ever dreamed of. When the fifth city refuses to share their incredible advancements, or explain why they’ve been hiding all these centuries, Governor Greyling declares a war. Sylvia Thorne of Meadowcity is a messenger, traveling between the wild and overgrown lands between cities, and she happens to be the unlucky messenger to deliver Greyling’s war declaration, getting caught in the middle of the first war in a thousand years. Join Sylvia and her friends as they fight to return the Four Cities' independence, a journey that will show them the meaning of courage, loss, and discovery.
