Ashley Lavering – Author Bio:
A nomad at heart, I currently claims Nevada as my home. I have a wonderful husband and two young children that put up with my “writing time.” When not pondering a spell that will magically calm the ferocious winds that plague the plague the air around me, you can find me with notepad in hand frantically jotting down ideas in those short moments between caring for my girls and working full time at the Elko Institute for Academic Achievement.
Art and science have always been my yin and yang. Throughout my college career, I shifted between the two, but graduated with a Bachelors of Mathematics and Science from the University of Wyoming.
“Wolf Spell” by R. M Polish
Esmerelda is forced into a world that she never knew existed with magic and vampires. With her guardian by her side, she learns about her past…and her future. But nothing prepares her for the reality of what she must accomplish. She must awaken five dead witches in order to save not only her life, but those around her. Can Es do the unthinkable and awaken them from their graves before time runs out?
M.R. Polish – Author Bio
If I am not producing magic potions, traveling to far off lands and falling in love with mythical creatures, then I am awake – tripping over toys, chasing my four kids and conjuring ways to unknowingly booby trap our house for my husband. (Yes its unknowingly, I swear I never placed the tiny plastic army man in his path for him to find in the dark of midnight!) I love my husband and our wonderful children (all of whom help with the booby traps!) We are Nevadians and are happy, although I envy and miss the beautiful mountains of Idaho and I love the South. I love writing Young Adult and Adult Fantasy and Paranormal with Romance, although you never know what could show up in my books!
