About the Author

So who am I? Well, I'm the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn't love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.
I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

The Promise was the story of CJ, the most powerful witch in a town filled with them, yet a non-believer. CJ made a promise to her dying sister never to join the coven of New Salem and so far she kept it. But with her 18th birthday coming up, everyone being so sure that she has to join and a gorgeous stranger pushing her towards the coven, what's a girl to do?

I loved CJ, she was a great main character. Full of life and so much fun. I loved how even though she lives in a town where pretty much everyone is part of the coven she still doesn't believe and has made up her mind to keep her promise, as hard as that may be.

Another thing I loved was the mystery behind Emily's death, CJ's sister. It unraveled so beautifully, with the diary entries and all the history intertwined with it. This was such a great paranormal mystery. I also loved the town, even though the people living in it not so much. And of course I loved the dark magic. I love books about witches and this one is great.

What I didn't like so much was Ethan, the love interest and his relationship with CJ. It is insta-love and I usually don't like that, but he is also kind of a bad character throughout the book. I didn't like how CJ changed so much when he was around.

All in all, the Promise is a great witchy mystery. It has it all, a town, a curse and a kick-ass heroine.
