I shot Diego a swift look, hoping he would shrug off my suspicions and explain what really happened. He hadn’t–no, couldn’t–tear his eyes away from Cari. I didn’t think he was capable of expressing such terror; his eyes looked as if they would pop out of his head, his jaw had dropped, and he had lost all the color in his face. Those teal eyes were darker than ever, glued to my younger half-sister.
Most were-youth undergo their first transformation as they go through puberty. However, since their father was a human, Jett and his older sister, Jade, were late bloomers. Jade had her first transformation when she was fourteen and passed away shortly after; Jett did not transform for the first time until his seventeenth birthday.

Her most treasured memories are all with Cari; taking her to star gaze, watching poorly made horror flicks, using her allowance to buy Cari a beginner’s broomstick.

I have spent the better part of the last decade on world-building, character creation, and research for a book series I titled The Chronicles of Life & Death. This series has been revamped and rewritten at least four separate times as characters have been added–as the story began pouring out of me. Now, I am pleased to say that I have not only completed my first book, but I have published it on Amazon.com!
