August, Persephone is the sweeter side of fantasy, much like the books Phoenix
grew up reading. She thoroughly enjoyed writing this delightful tale, and
sincerely hopes that those who purchase and read Persephone get as much satisfaction
from it as she did.
written word. Even when she was a young girl, she usually had her nose stuck in
at least one book, and her need to read would drive her to peruse the back of
the same cereal box each morning at breakfast. Paranormal and fantasy captured
her heart, with tales about dragons, magic, and fanciful creatures sweeping her
away to a wonderful new world where she felt she truly belonged. While she
dabbled in writing while in primary school, it wasn’t until high school that
she decided she should try her hand at writing her own book, and even gave
poetry a try.
She wandered away from writing for a few years,
but was soon encouraged to return and, within months of picking up the
proverbial pen, Phoenix’ first story, The Wolf In The Neighborhood, was
accepted for publication by Naughty Nights Press. While working on the rest of
the Wolf Smitten Trilogy, Phoenix decided to take on a university degree, and
is now in the final stretch of her Bachelor of Art’s degree in Professional
Writing and Publishing, with plans to continue on to her Master’s degree.
In early 2015, Phoenix was thrilled to discover
she’d made two Top 5 lists with three entries in the Easychair Bookstore
Awards. In June, it was announced she had placed first in Best Paranormal with
Once Bitten Twice Shy, the second installment in her Wolf Smitten Trilogy,
while The Wolf In The Neighborhood and Wolf Smitten placed third in their
respective categories of Best Paranormal and Best Series.
With her inclusion in the Alphas on the Prowl Box
Set in 2015, Phoenix hit the top 100 bestsellers lists across numerous
distributors, number 1 bestseller on several Amazon lists, and this was quickly
followed by the announcement of her achievement of number 1 bestseller for her
publisher, Naughty Nights Press, for the full second quarter of 2015. The
awards and achievements have only served to strengthen her ambitions, and she
is now aiming at reaching the bestseller lists for USA Today and New York
Phoenix has been working hard to make 2015 her
year, and has been busy organizing paranormal anthology Twisted Tales with
seven other authors. Its release at the end of June is greatly anticipated, and
she is extremely excited to see where her writing career takes her next.
