Featured Author: Wendy Knight

Welcome Today's Featured Author
Wendy Knight!!

Cauldron Bubble
“You’ve just always been the powerful one. I’m the smart aleck.”
“We’re the same. I’m night, you’re day. You have to have both to have life.”
“You can hide in the shadows.”
“And you can shine like the sun. This prophesy is about both of us.”

Destiny doesn't think she's anything special. The daughter of an outcast witch. Her twin, Fate, is her best friend, so that's awesome. They're experts in love potions and selling them to crazy high school kids.

So they can buy more shoes.

But that all changes when their school is attacked by warlocks—warlocks who want her power for their own. The attack launches her onto the path the stars have chosen for Destiny, Fate, and their long-lost father.

Oh, and Quin.

Quin, who's the son of a witch, only tolerating Destiny's presence because she can save his mother. Except along the way, that all changes, and he realizes Destiny is everything he never knew he wanted. The only problem is she thinks if love can be made from a potion, it can't be a real thing.

If they survive this, he's going to prove her wrong.


Fire Burn

**This is the second book in the series but can be read first**

“I’ve always been able to see the auras. But I knew you couldn’t because you refuse to see the darkness in people and I didn’t want you to ever change. So I didn’t tell you.”

Fate thought the prophecy was over. She graduated high school, made big plans with her family and her boyfriend to travel the world, and got a full-ride scholarship for college in the fall.

Despite blowing up the chemistry lab twice.

But all that changes when the witches show up, because the war they thought they won is just beginning and without Fate and Destiny leading the way, it’s a war they will all lose. Unfortunately, the coven wants them to lead separate teams. Like they somehow don’t realize Fate works better with her sister by her side.

Oh, and Damien.

Damien isn’t going to let the girl he loves face these odds alone. In fact, he’ll risk everything, even her, to help win this battle and keep her alive. Damien makes an impossible choice, one that will change them all.

Sometimes, love isn’t the answer.

About Wendy Knight
Wendy Knight is the award-winning, bestselling author of the young adult series Fate on Fire and Riders of Paradesos. She was born and raised in Utah by a wonderful family who spoiled her rotten because she was the baby. Now she spends her time driving her husband crazy with her many eccentricities (no water after five, terror when faced with a live phone call, no touching the knives…you get the idea). She also enjoys chasing her three adorable kids, playing tennis, watching football, reading, and hiking. Camping is also big—her family is slowly working toward a goal of seeing all the National Parks in the U.S.
You can usually find her with at least one Pepsi nearby, wearing ridiculously high heels for whatever the occasion. And if everything works out just right, she will also be writing.

Interview With Wendy Knight:
1. Can you tell us a little about your books? 
I write a little of everything, from middle grade to new adult, but my favorite is young adult paranormal/urban fantasy. The one thing that's most important is that my heroines will always save the day. I started writing because I read a princess story to my daughters about a princess who needed a boy to help her climb out a window. I was so sad. So Ari, my most kick-butt heroine, was born and I've been writing ever since!
2. When did you know you wanted to write a book? 
It's been a dream since I was little teeny and would write stories with those big fat crayons they give toddlers so they don't break them. 
3. Do you have a favorite food or drink you must have nearby when writing? 
Pepsi!!! And Cheerios. Weird combination, but delicious. If it's a stressful scene, I also need Lindt chocolate truffles or Dove chocolates. They're the only chocolates I like.
4. If you ever experience a case of writer’s block, how do you cure it? 
I drive around with the music up full blast and let my brain work through the scenes with the music. I think eighty percent of my books are just scenes I've come up with to go with songs on the radio.
 5. When you write do you write the first draft on a computer or paper and pen? 
Computer! My handwriting is so horrible I'd never be able to read it after!
6. What is a usual writing day like for you?  How is it structured? 
I am super big on routines. I'm like a toddler that way...ahem. Anyway, I take my kids to school at 8:00, then come home and write until 11. Then I do marketing stuff and my day job. Then I coach until 5:00 PM, hang out with my kids, eat something because apparently you can't live on Pepsi and Cheerios, and then edit or write more after everyone's in bed. I go to bed around midnight and do it all over again!

7. For a reader who hasn't read your books yet, which book do you suggest they start with? Cauldron Bubble. It's my newest series that I actually wrote to bribe my cross country team to beat their personal records. If they did, I told them I'd put them in my books! But it's a fun series and I love the characters so much. If fantasy isn't your thing, try my Star Crossed Hurricane. It's a short contemporary romance and the only one of my books that I've read more than once.
8. How do you decided whether the story is going to be just one book or more than one book?
 It will be 3 full novels and a short novella! The next two come out in March, and the last will come out in May. And then I will have to say goodbye and cry and cry.
9. If your fairy godmother waved her wand and whisked you away to the location of your choice, which place would you choose, and why? 
 Scotland! So much history, so beautiful. My ancestors are from Scotland and I've been fascinated by it my whole life!
10. What are writing projects are you currently working on? 
I'm editing Double Double right now, which is the prequel novella to Cauldron Bubble. This week I also get to start on the final book in the Toil & Trouble series--which still needs a title!
