I have so much to be thankful for but I would not at this place in my life today if not for some pretty remarkable influences that charted my path. The first is my sister Anna, who started the whole fairytale business in the first place. The stories she would read me were a ride that I never got off of. Alice in wonderland is still my favorite escape of all time. Then there is Anne Rice, and my first vampire love Lestat. Growing up and living in New Orleans, what can I say, it is the perfect place to hone the paranormal fantasy mind and this legendary woman and her Vampire Chronicles fueled my imagination.
I began to write but was to self conscious to share my stories so I wrote for me. Time passed, works were put away and life went on, until Hurricane Katrina. The curse to so many was a blessing in disguise for me, though at the time I didn’t think so. She blew into town, destroyed my business and my farm, then moved me north, from Alabama to the Georgia mountains.
That decision changed my life. A box in the top of a closet, an unfinished manuscript, and a whisper in my ear. Finish what you started. That story, started in my twenties, is what you are reading today.
Thank you to my hubby Jeff who is the poster child for unselfishness and encouragement. I love you. To my family and friends who also encouraged me to take up the sword and do what I love. Write, and a special thanks to the girls who help me take care of business; Lisa, Kathie, Theresa, Sue, Gini, and Katie, but most of all I want to thank the readers for turning the pages, falling in love and wanting more. To you I am forever grateful.
Finish what I started? I’ve only just begun.
FRACTURE The Secret Enemy Saga is available in paperback at Barnes and Nobles and Amazon.com, and as an e-book through Amazon and Smashwords.

A brilliant concept intertwined with a very well-written story! One world has magic, one world has technology. Should they try to combine there is a chance that both will perish. But what happens when someone from one falls in love with someone from the other?
This is the tale of what happens when one world tries to cross over to the other and the people who are trying to stop this from happening. There are noble kings, honourable assasins, seers, traitors, inner evil that is wrapped up in beauty and stallions with attitude to name but a few.
I loved how the worlds intermingle and how someone from one world would try to comprehend the other. The characters all have depth and are fantastic to read about. You will become involved with each and every one as their story unfolds.
Highly recommended to all fantasy readers!

This book is one of the best fantasy I have read this summer. It has very unique characters and a world depicted so well you feel you know the place.
There is a fracture that connects another world with ours. One who has castles, kings, magic, and warriors. One such warrior, probably the best and most feared ever is Tegrin. Nothing will stop him from eliminating the dangerous couton women who are addicted to stealing memories.
In our world we have Kristina, a 19 year old whose parents have been killed by these creatures. She wants revenge and to help save her town and the world from them. She teams up with Tegrin and they find out she has a past she never knew and is connected to both worlds and Tegrin to boot.
Her friends Sissy and Jimmy are loyal and join the fray to protect this world from danger. The characters are so enjoyable and lovable, with witty dialogue and great sense of humors. I love how Kristina, even with her life and world turned upside down, never loses herself or personality in the process.
A must read and I can not wait to start the next book in the series!

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*
I’ll admit when I started reading the very first chapter I wasn’t sure how much I would like this book. It was my first fantasy novel, but I wanted to expand my reading base so I continued to read on and I am very pleased that I did.
It started off a little slow but I believe it was building up to the action half way through the book. There was so much detail packed into the pages. The author cleverly combines the fantasy world of Patwain with earth. There is a fracture between the two, leaving both worlds vulnerable and accessible.
I really liked the idea of The Couton- beautiful alluring women with the ability to steal memories. This was original and unlike anything I had ever read before. Tegrin, the lion-esque man is sent from Patwain to stop these women. It is then that he meets Kristina and they soon realise that their worlds are entwined beyond what they could have ever imagined.
I enjoyed learning about the true identity of Kristina’s heritage and her quest for revenge after the death of her parents. It took me a little longer to connect with Tegrin but once I opened myself up to accept the fantasy element, I enjoyed his story and his own quest.
This was a really good book, like no other I have read. I enjoyed the author’s writing style and the rich descriptions she created. After knowing how it ends I can’t wait to read the second book!

A smartly accomplished and compelling plot! Talent and imagination meet technique in the unlikeliest of places.... the "Fracture" between two worlds.
The characters are driven by McKevitt's own hand. Built by her obvious vivid imagination you will come to know them personally. They will pull you in to the story not chapter by chapter but paragraph by paragraph.
McKevitt's writing style is freshly surprising and flourishes with touches of realism that make the "Secret Enemy Saga" a double edged tale that lingers long after the last word is read.
McKevitt's thought processes are well formed and believable. Maybe too believable.
The ending left me wanting more ...... Thankfully, Book 2 is in the works!
Keep writing McKevitt!
