My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy panty dropping hotness! I loved the first Immortal book, but this one, seeing how everyone got to be the way they were, was too much! I loved it. There was some really hot scenes and a lot of action. I'm freaking out now, wondering if there will be more with these characters!

Hey Kristin, I can’t tell you how happy I am that Amara’s book is out! I fell in love with these characters in Immortal Scrolls and it was great seeing where they all came from.

Between the two books, which of the guys is your favorite? 

There is no way to choose between Lucian and Androcles. They are both great. Another favorite of mine is Galen.

Between the two books, which of the girls is your favorite? 

I like Araceli, but I love to hate Amara.

There seem to be a lot of love triangles in both books. Which one were you cheering for as you wrote these? 

In Immortal Beginnings: Amara, I was hoping Amara would find love and peace with Galen. In The Immortal Scrolls, I am just as torn as Araceli between Lucian and Androcles. There is no way I would ever want to see Amara end up with Androcles.

What song would you use to describe Amara’s book?

I used the song Evenstar, from the Lord of the Rings The Two Towers Soundtrack in the book trailer I made. The song is beautiful, haunting, and speaks of putting your trust in love which is something Amara couldn’t let herself do fully after...well, I don’t want to spoil the plot.  

Do you have a favorite quote from Amara’s book? 

"At last Amara understood her former friend, Oona. Her heart was just as cold now. You have to take fate into your own hands and not let others get in the way of what you want."

What motivates you to write?

I love writing. I enjoy creating characters and intricate storylines. When readers tell me they love my books, it motivates me to keep writing.  

Can you tell us who’s getting their own book next?

I am working on another book in the series that will feature all the characters and fill the reader in on what happened in their lives during the huge time gap.  

I can't wait to read it! Thanks for being here!
