Genre: YA Fantasy/Horror
When the population of a nearby city vanishes overnight, aspiring detective Kalinda joins the search party - but the city isn't empty.  

Yesterday, she wrote about joining Afterglow and her first reviewToday she's hanging out over there to answer questions. 

Here's her bio to get your curiosity working:

I'm a twenty-something assistant extraordinaire with a love of good food, animated films, and budget-busting fashion. I'm an aspiring YA author, and I write fantasy, mystery, and horror - sometimes a mix of all three!

Head over to her blog and welcome her, to the blogosphere (she's only been blogging since June), to Afterglow Book Reviews, and onto your reading list. Also, meet her on twitter.

p.s. 11 days left till WriteOnCon, the annual free online writing conference for kidlit-ers (that sounds dirty; maybe I won't use that word again) that is a DO-NOT-MISS event.

 p.p.s. I wrote 5k words last night. Pret-ty proud of my myself. *rolling on my toes like a kid with a good report card* You can see by my progress bar in the sidebar, I'm 70% done with this dark paranormal romance. Yay!


  1. Wow, thank you so much! What a warm welcome! I can't believe I put off starting a blog for so long. The blogosphere is a wonderful place to be. :)

  2. The writing community is pretty awesome. Excited to have you here and look forward to reading more of your excellent creative writing.

  3. Becky, you are awesome and should know it!
