Writing the character of Hazel was an exciting adventure for me. Hazel has boundless energy, optimism, and is always willing to join a group. I, on the other hand, have never been a fan! The absolute worst thing that any teacher could ever ask me to do was to participate in a GROUP project. F**K!! I hated them. I would rather do twice as much work on my own. I get all the nonsense about team-building and problem-solving, etc. but everyone is not the same. We all learn in a different way. People who love group projects and brainstorming should have the right to pursue that approach, but people who would rather sit in the corner of the library surrounded by volumes of literature, stacks of notebooks, and piles of lovely pens—should be left the hell alone and allowed to figure shit out on their own. And there’s a little more me leaking out into the world… Week 2
The Advance Reader Team has their copies, the paperback has been published, and several promos are scheduled for the week.

This debut young adult fantasy takes the reader on an epic journey. Imagine if giant moa still walked the earth and Aotearoa was ruled by a succession of high priestesses…
What if the magic book that held that whole world in balance was ripped in two and a coven of dark witches plotted to destroy the light forever? This is the world where Flynn Hawthorn lives. She is the ninth daughter of the ninth daughter, living under a curse. Her birth fulfills an ancient prophecy. She is destined to inherit the wand of the High Priestess and save her people by reuniting the separated halves of The Book of Shadow and Light.
But in a land filled with magick, Flynn is forced to live her life as a Watcher—born into magick, but unable to wield it. As the threat from the Shadow Coven of Southeil grows, Flynn must pretend—with the help of her best friend, Hazel—that she actually has magick. Hazel would do anything for Flynn, but the game they are playing may cost them their lives…
