in closer, whispering, “There has been mention of a Mission.”
Hag! The Council hadn’t called for a Mission since before I was born. There
were rumors that something happened in the human world the year King
Starshooter and his advisors went, which was about seventeen or eighteen years
ago, something bad enough they’d quit sending Goblins. King Starshooter’s
father deemed them too dangerous. It was around that time, too, that he
declared humans as fairytales and set laws against speaking of them or trying
to search them out. Penalty being prison or possible death, depending on how
far one went with their stories and ventures. Although, I knew there were
people who worked in the Gob Hollow black market and still supplied
information—for a price.

Mission used to be a coming-of-age journey that consisted of royals, nobles,

About the Author
I was born and raised in Michigan (just look for the mitten-shaped state on the map). I’ve lived here most of my life other than the few years I spent in the U.S. Army. At which time I got a chance to experience MO, KS, SC, and CA.
I work full time for the court system and in my free time I write YA stories. Pretty much any genre within the YA realm is game for me, but my favorites are fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, thrillers, light sci-fi, and some time travel.
I also have a big family–I like to consider us the modern day Brady Bunch. When my hubby and I met and got married, he had 3 children from a previous marriage, I had 2 and we have 1 together. It’s a lot of fun though.
And I can’t forget my other family members–yep, we’ve got some pets: 4 dogs, 3 cats, and 1 turtle. Everyone in the family has one…I won’t bore you all with their names (unless you really want to know). Okay, you talked me into it! Jack, Pearl, Grr…(yes that’s my dog’s name), Leia, Callie, Mooshoo, Grouchy, and Sorbert. Other than writing some of my other hobbies include: reading (mostly YA of course), singing, swimming, football, soccer, running, camping, sledding, church, hanging with my kids, and traveling.
I belong to a fabulous writing group called YA Fiction Fantatics (YAFF) and you guessed it we all write YA!
