Believe it or not, the INTERTWINED series is the product of a preteen! Well, the first book is anyway. I was twelve years old when I watched the movie Somewhere In Time—a beautiful love story about a modern day playwright who becomes obsessed with a photo of a famous actress taken in the early 1900s. Filled with time paradoxes, intrigue and bittersweet romance, the movie made such an impression on me that I became obsessed with creating my own time traveling story. I’d lie in bed late at night plotting and daydreaming, and even found inspiration in the belongings of my home. We had this antique trunk that served as a coffee table in our living room. It had a lock with a brass key, and one day I looked at it and thought, how freaky would it be if you moved into an abandoned plantation, found an old trunk in one of the bedrooms and inside was a charcoal drawing of a girl who looked just like you?
And so INTERTWINED was born. Of course, it wasn’t titled that at the time. And the story is nowhere near the same story that it was when I was twelve-years-old, but the concept and setting has always stayed the same. It was only later in my early twenties that I started playing with the idea of making it a series. TETHERED came to me in the later stages of developing INTERTWINED. Once I pictured a particular scene in my head that has since become one of my favorite chapters in the book, I knew Elizabeth’s and Adam’s journey was nowhere near done.
For those of you who have yet to read the first book, if you’re wondering why the blurb seems more like a horror story than a time traveling story that’s because, initially, it is! But there’s so much more, and while the traditional method of time traveling doesn’t necessarily happen, trust me when I say that you definitely go back in time. And that’s all I can say without getting too spoilery. Hope you enjoy!

Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Publication Day: July 16th 2017
A previous lifetime. A malevolent curse. A love they can’t live without. Will their past claim them once more? Elizabeth and Adam are about to find out …
Elizabeth and Adam survived the century old curse that nearly claimed the lives of their counterparts, Josephine and Braden, but at what cost?
As the veil between timelines continues to diminish, they yet again find themselves in a race against time to cheat death in the past in order to salvage their futures. But with the curse given form, everything is changing, leaving them vulnerable to new threats. No longer are the dangers of their former lifetime contained to the Jefferson Plantation—a land fraught with peril and where horror reigns every summer between July 20 and August 13.
Until now …
Having changed the past, history has rewritten itself, extending the last day of the haunting to August 31—their new expiration date. Without the aid of visions, though, Elizabeth and Adam must find a new way to uncover their past, leaving Adam to scour the plantation for clues, while Elizabeth learns how to access Josephine’s subconscious.
Meanwhile, the Callahans—a vengeful family intent on keeping Elizabeth and Adam apart—will stop at nothing to preserve their bloodline and keep the curse from destroying their family. Will their ruthless antics prove tragic once more?
Now more than ever, their love will be tested as Elizabeth and Adam contend with the forces of the curse and fight to save their counterparts in 1905.
Will they overcome the odds stacked against them? Or will the curse claim them for good?
