Giveaway: The Girl with the Half and Half Face

Back Cover Blurb

She’s been trained to follow wherever her Core leads.

Until it leads her away from everything she’s ever known . . . into mortal danger.

Eighteen-year-old Kayli-el discovers she’s part of a new, evolving species on her planet, with a powerful internal guidance called the Core. After her teacher is murdered for its secrets, Kayli-el runs for her life – right into the arms of Tamber, a boy who’s crossed the ocean on a mysterious quest . . . to find her!
When the same killers who murdered her teacher capture her best friend Serene, Kayli-el faces a choice with potentially deadly consequences: follow her Core’s wisdom and flee across the ocean to safety with Tamber, or defy her own guidance to try to save Serene’s life.

    6 Facts about the author:

    1. I am passionate about mac-n-cheese. No one can make it like my mom did, but I like to branch out and try all kinds. Five-cheese, truffle, lobster, gooey, dry, you name it, I love it.

    3. I once got one of my pastel paintings got into
    the Pastel Society of America’s annual juried competition. It didn’t win an award, but I was very proud anyway.
