Hope Ann likes to think herself a dragon-riding, griffin-taming founder of worlds and explorer of legends. Using chocolate, she bribes a wide ring of spies, from the realm leapers of Aslaria to the double agents of Elkbend, for their stories. She thrives on frost, steel, and the tears of her readers which she secretly mixes into iced coffee. Deep in her hobbit hole, her actual life involves staying up too late writing, reading, researching stab wounds, and struggling to remember the difference between ‘effect’ and ‘affect’. Based in Indiana, the crossroads of America, she is the author of the Legends of Light series. Hope Ann is also the Public Relations Director for Kingdom Pen and one of their writing mentors.

When Elissa sets off in search of her brother, the last thing she expects is to be trapped in safety while a raging war threatens her family. Despite her inability to leave her strange host, she is determined to save those she loves from the rebels, no matter the cost.
Defeat was bad enough. Refusal by the Prince to deal with those who rebelled was worse. With enemies closing in on all sides, a pardon that refuses punishment, and nightmares of murder and fire haunting his every thought, will Haydn recognize the truth or will his fear condemn everything he loves to destruction?
As Evrard and Roinette, twins separated at birth, are overtaken by events swirling from centuries past, they are forced into a battle beyond their own limited powers. With their ability to walk in the Melody Realm, catching glimpses of the light and darkness underlying Aslaria, comes even greater danger. If you enjoy fairy tales, this is one retelling of Rapunzel you won’t want to miss!
