Young Adult Fantasy
Book # 3 in the Gatekeepers Trilogy
Date Published: 5/1/13
In The Gatekeeper's Sons, Therese and Thanatos, the god of Death, met and fell in love. In The Gatekeeper's Challenge, they did everything they could to be together, even break an oath on the River Styx. But the Olympians don't tolerate oath-breakers. In this final book in the trilogy, The Gatekeeper's Daughter, Therese may have finally succeeded in becoming a goddess, but if she wants to remain one, she'll not only have to discover her unique purpose, but also make some allies among the gods. Artemis sends her on a seemingly impossible quest across the world, while Than searches for a way to appease Ares. To make matters worse, her aunt's baby's life hangs in the balance.
Reading Addiction Blog Tours MEET and GREET
#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
Absolutely. I became a professor of writing and literature knowing it would be a good fit for launching a writing career. It’s taken me years to make it happen, but I’m loving the journey and not looking back! I have several more books outlined and can’t wait to write them!
#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
The most difficult part of this journey was deciding whether to pursue the traditional publishing route or to self-publish. Patience has never been a virtue of mine, and the traditional route is so long and tedious, but taking the leap to self-publish was scary. Luckily, I wasn’t alone. I found a lovely editor, named Sara Kocek through the Writers’ League of Texas, and a talented graphic artist, named Melinda Vanlone. With their help, I took the plunge, and, so far, I have no regrets.
#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
I’ve had several critique partners who have all helped to improve my writing, including Shona Snowden, Debbie Canon, Minka Misangyi, Tammy Gray, Sharon Dotson, Valerie Chandler, Carole Leezer, and my graphic artist, Melinda Vanlone (who is also a writer), but the one person who helped me more than any other was my editor, Sara Kocek.
#4 – What is next for your writing?
My plans are to write a second trilogy from the point of view of one of the other characters in Gatekeeper’s.
#5– Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
I do have an addiction to reading, and I’ve always tried to maintain a balance between writing and reading because each activity intensifies the other, in my opinion. Currently I’m reading Starters, by Lissa Price.
