Ever since I was a kid, I've always loved mythology and all the stories of the various gods, goddesses, heroes, heroines, and monsters battling each other and going on amazing adventures. My interest in mythology inspired me to write TOUCH OF FROST, the first book in my Mythos Academy series. The book focuses on Gwen Frost, a seventeen-year-old Gypsy girl with psychometry magic. After a serious freak-out with her magic, Gwen gets shipped off to Mythos Academy, a school for the descendants of ancient warriors like Spartans, Amazons, and Valkyries.
Here's a little more about the book:
My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy - a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where Logan Quinn, the hottest guy, also happens to be the deadliest.
But things have been weird. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, an artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I'm determined to find out who killed Jasmine - especially since I should have been the one who died ...
Happy reading! ;-)
