Book Blurb:
How does a cruise change your life?
By sailing through the Bermuda Triangle.
Carly Carmichael has one goal in life--to perform on Broadway. She refuses to have a Plan B because she's never needed one--until now. When Carly's parents send her on a cruise as a graduation present, she takes her best friend and their boyfriends along with her. Once the ship sails into the Bermuda Triangle, Carly finds herself unable to sing or walk, much less perform. And things just go downhill from there. Hoping for help from the ship's doctor, she ends up with more questions than answers about the mystery behind the Bermuda Triangle and why her life is now unrecognizable. If Carly can't get her real life back on track, she may end up spending the next sixty years trapped in a life the Triangle chooses for her.

So, What Do You Write?

It's a question I get asked a lot. And before I started writing, it seemed like a pretty simple one to answer.
I love YA fantasy, so I'll write YA fantasy. But the truth is that I end up writing whatever my muse tells me to. But, to keep from coming off like a crazy person to non-authors, my answer has been the ever intelligent "Umm...Yes?"

YA Fantasy is my passion and my primary focus. But along the way, I've also written pieces focused on adults, dabbled in non-fiction, told some ghost stories, written a few religious pieces, and now I've finished my first murder/comedy story.

Any author worth her salt will tell you that to be successful  in this business you need to read. A lot. Read as many styles and genres as you can, not just your favorites.  But I can't help but wonder if (and hope) the same is true for writing. Most of the things I write will never be published, and that's okay. They're helping me refine my own unique style, and every piece helps me learn something. Even if that some thing is "I should never try this style again."

What are your thoughts?
