Think Harry Potter meets Avengers. This is a magical adventure that spans different planets, each with their own take on magic and aliens. Earth is still in the dark about how interesting the galaxy can be. And also how dangerous.
Reality Break (Phoenix Element #3):
Time is ticking to locate a means to take down Ashima, an entity from another plane of existence. Her fuel is death. Through death is power. And Ashima has her eyes on Earth.
Anya isn’t ready for Earth to be exposed to magic and aliens but at this rate, she doesn’t have a say in it. What Anya can do is stop Ashima before she pulls reality apart.

Ten Things You Should Know About
It depends on my mood and the scene that I am currently writing. I’ve sought out songs just to fit the mood. A little neat thing that I like to do is create a soundtrack for each book that I write. For Reality Break, there are fourteen songs that I picked that best fit the book at different points. Roots by Imagine Dragons, Castle of Glass from Linkin Park, and The Pretender by Foo Fighters are just a few of the songs used for my playlist. The rest can be seen here, with links to their Youtube videos.
2. What is the first thing you remember writing?
A poem about a fish named Brett back when I was in the fifth grade. I still have it too! But in order to find it, I would have to dig into boxes upon boxes. I do remember that the fish was to be a birthday present for a friend.
3. Have you ever named a character in honor of someone you know?
Yes, and sadly, in 2014, she passed away. We started out as internet friends. Then when I needed a place to stay while in Seattle, she opened up her apartment to me, asking for nothing in return. I stayed at her place for a week during 2012 and 2013. I was unable to visit Seattle the year that she died. If I had, I would have seen her two months prior to her death.
4. Do you write using a keyboard, pen and paper, or both?
I love writing with pen and paper. I need to pick up another notebook since all of mine are full now. For Reality Break, I wrote the entire book out first before transferring it to my computer.
5. What project are you working on now?
I have a few ideas running in my head about a fourth Phoenix Element book. This one might be about all the repercussions that came about from Reality Break.
6. What fictional character would you like to have as a best friend (could be your own)?
Tasslehoff Burrfoot from the Dragonlance book series. He is a kender, which is like a hobbit but they are slightly different. Tasslehoff loves adventure and overall would just be a great person to hang out with.
7. What book are you currently reading?
I don’t normally read more than one book at a time, but recently, I’ve thrown that rule out the window. It all started with the Sherlock Holmes Complete Novels. I read a few stories before switching to another book. I just finished A Sudden Terror by Cristina Isabel and now I’ve started on Fantastic Creatures, which is a collection of fantasy stories by several different authors. I’m also reading City of Heroes graphic novel, mainly because I am missing the MMO game of the same name.
8. Do you write/read every single day?
I want to but work tends to get in the way of that. I get most of my writing done on my days off. I read when I find a free moment, like while on break at work or before going to bed.
9. What is one of your favorite beverages/snacks while writing?
I try to stick with water. But the fuel that coffee brings me is simply invigorating. Especially if it is hazelnut coffee, hot or iced, both work just fine for me.
10. Do you have any other creative outlets besides writing?
I’m trying to learn how to draw. There isn’t enough hours in the day! I also play Dungeons and Dragons. I play with a group of friends about once or twice a month. I am also running a game with my husband. D&D is mostly improv, even after spending hours writing out an adventure!
