Wow, what an experience that was for me. I found the whole process of writing for teens exhilarating and pleasurable and it reminded me of why I write in the first place. I couldn’t wait to get to the computer in the morning and had to drag myself away when the kids got home from school. I’ve never, ever had a character speak to me the way Pride did. I lived her life for six months and felt her every emotion. I laughed with her, cried with her, ached for her and in the process, I became her.
The one thing readers keep telling me about Pride’s Run is that they were there with her during her journey, smelling what she smelled, tasting what she tasted and feeling what she felt. This couldn't make me happier because I didn’t want my readers sitting back reading a book, I wanted them to be a part of the adventure.
Pride’s Run is an upper Young Adult story with crossover appeal to adults. So not only will your teens want to read it, you’ll want to read it too.
I just finished writing Pride Unleashed, the second story is this trilogy and I must say Pride has made me so proud of her.
About the book:
Seventeen year old Pride is a tracker—a werewolf with a hunger for blood. Taught to trick and to lure, she is the perfect killing machine.
Kept leashed in the cellar by a master who is as ruthless as he is powerful, Pride dreams of freedom, of living a normal life, but escape from the compound is near impossible and disobedience comes with a price.
When she learns her master intends to breed her she knows she has to run.
Pride soon learns if she is to survive in the wild, she must trust in the boy who promises her freedom, the same boy she was sent to hunt.
With life and death hanging in the balance the two find themselves on the run from the Paranormal Task Force—officers who shoot first and ask questions later—as well as her master’s handlers.
Can Pride flee the man who has held her captive since birth and find sanctuary in the arms of a boy who has captured her heart? Or will her master find her first?
