I am delighted to be published here on Smashwords and am looking forward to having you join me on my author adventure.
A few things about me: I am addicted to coffee and B-rated horror movies. I love to read and have been affectionally called a "book vampire" by my family. That passion easily translated into writing my own stories.
Please connect with me on Facebook or Twitter and let me know if you enjoyed my book(s) or not- either way I'd love to hear from you!

I have been a huge fan of this series ever since I found it! Cege Smith is a very creative author that creates worlds that are very similar to ours with emotions that we can all relate to: fear, betrayal, grief, and most importantly love.
Trials of Truth basically picks up pretty much right where The Queen's Betrayal leaves off. Connor and Angeline are finding themselves ensnared in a trap the Clan has been planning for a long time.
The characters in this novel work good together. Connor and Angeline are very smart and do not have the "insta-love" element to them that most young adult protagonists do. They do, however, have the tragic love written all over them. And it is interesting to see how they deal with the problems that arise from their love for each other.
It seems like everyone in the story so far, has to choose how far they are willing to go to save people and in the process, maybe lose themselves too.
I did find that the story seemed to go a little slow, especially where the Queen's Court drama pertained to. And I am not a huge fan of Malin but I do think he will redeem himself in the end. At least I hope he does.
This book leaves off on a huge cliffhanger which had me a little shell shocked. I was like, " What? Oh come on, just give me a little bit more!!" I am not a huge fan of cliff hangers because I hate to wait but this one was pretty good at the abruptness of it. But it served its purpose because now I am so intensely waiting for the next book!
All in all, I am really digging this series as it takes us farther and farther into the lies, deceit, politics, and even the truth of the real histories of the Robart family. I think in this story the truth may be the darkest part of all.
So if you are interested in the High Court drama, with a mixture of the supernatural element such as witches, vampires and an all knowing cult Clan then you should definitely grab these up.
