Discovering long lost relatives can be a real nightmare. Do you know who or what you're related to?
Jaden Lisette never imagined she might not live to see her sixteenth birthday, or that befriending reclusive triplets and a mentally challenged man could be her only chance of survival. Days after coming to Louisiana, Jaden falls for eighteen-year-old Briz Nolan. Then she falls into a living nightmare when she discovers a side of her family that she never knew existed.
Once she uncovers her family's deadly secret, Jaden is forced into a world she could only imagine in horror movies.
There's nowhere to run.
Sweet Desire, Wicked Fate would not exist if my partner Steven Smeltzer hadn’t created the strange looking sculptures that eventually became the Mal Rous in my novel. The day I was photographing the sculptures the story came to life in my head, and I couldn’t make it go away; finally surrendering to their voices I began the journey of writing my first novel.
I found the entire process of writing the book to be a fabulous learning process—well worth the highs and lows, the frustrating times, and of course the joy of completing book one.
People have asked me about the book’s cover. The flower is an Angle Trumpet, a.k.a. Datura, and the insect is a damselfly. If you have read the book it will make sense to you—in case you haven’t read the book, I don’t want to give anything away, but there is a character in the story called Datura, and another character that identifies with the damselfly.
I’d say the triplets are my favorite characters in the book. Their backstory is alive and well in my mind, and I plan on one day writing a novella about the three women, so everyone else that is intrigued by them will know their story. But first on my list is finishing up the sequel to Sweet Desire, Wicked Fate.
About the author:
I live on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with an artist, five cats and a parrot. Sweet Desire, Wicked Fate was inspired by sculptures my partner in life and business, artist Steven Lee Smeltzer created. Currently I'm writing bk 2 of Sweet Desire, Wicked Fate
With a desire to promote teens that are PONO, Hawaiian for "doing the right thing," I have created the site DaKine Teens+ at dakineteens.tumblr.com
