Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Careful what you wish for. It just might come true. - The West Woods by Suzy Vadori

"The West Woods, is really well written, evenly paced and a few entertaining moments slipped in here and there... I am going to recommend it and do not forget to read The Fountain too!" - Nadine, Goodreads

Courtney Wallis wants nothing more than to escape St. Augustus boarding school. After uncovering a well-kept secret about the school’s founder, Isaac Young, Courtney turns to the school’s magic to convince her dad to let her leave. Things take a turn when she meets Cole, who lives in the nearby town of Evergreen. He gives her hope that things might not be so bad. However, the fountain has other ideas, and binds Courtney to her ambition, no matter the cost.

As Courtney struggles to keep the magic from taking over, she and her friends get drawn into the mystery woven into the school’s fabric. Everything seems to lead back to the forbidden West Woods. Together, she and her friends seek out the spirits of the past to ask for help, and find themselves in much deeper than they’d bargained for. If they succeed, Courtney could be free of the magic. If they fail, she may never be the same.

AUTHOR's Playlist

Actually, more of a watch list. I often have the TV on in the background when doing first drafts of The Fountain Series. Not the most efficient way to write, perhaps, but it works for me. When I’m editing, I do it in peace and quiet. 

The following is a list of series I’ve watched while creating first drafts in The Fountain Series over the past six years. Most of them are targeted at Young Adults, which helps me get in the mood. Some of them are older, but fun to watch the whole series at once. 

1. The Gilmore Girls
2. Grey’s Anatomy
3. Pretty Little Liars
4. Ghost Whisperer
5. Vampire Diaries
6. The Originals
7. Survivor
