At five years old, Tess was walking down a gravel path and saw that one of the rocks had been kicked away into the grass, all alone. She was instantly upset, cradled the poor rock in her hands and returned it to it’s family of fellow rocks. She told me a story then, of how the rock had come to be all alone, complete with romance, intrigue, and betrayal. She was never without a book. And had read the complete Lord of the Rings Trilogy four times before the age of thirteen.
It is with this kind of imagination, passion, and love for stories, that Tess now wrote her young adult fantasy novels. She began writing her first novel, Ember, at age sixteen and didn't stop.

4.5/5 stars...could be a solid 5 if not for frequent and often distracting typos. Aside from requiring a copy editor, "Ember" is an engrossing story with a diverse and colorful ensemble of characters. Only the "bad guys" seem one-sided and overly simplistic, though the author hints at more dimension in the subsequent novels of this series. She also does a fabulous job in slowly revealing details about the fantasy setting and its history--without losing touch with the present problems of the trio of lead characters, who read more like modern-day teenagers than those of typical high fantasy. The effect is a quick-paced, witty, and very entertaining novel. I look forward to following the rest of the series!
