Mistral Dawn is a thirty-something gal who has lived on both coasts of the US but somehow never in the middle. She currently resides in the Southeast US with her kitty cats (please spay or neuter! :-)) where she works as a hospital drudge and attends graduate school. This is her first effort at writing fiction and if it is well received she has ideas for several more novels and short-stories in this series.
You may contact her at email@example.com, and she would love to hear from you, or through her Facebook page posted below, or Twitter her at @MistralKDawn. She thanks you humbly for purchasing and reading her first book and hopes you will do her the honor of rating and reviewing her work. :-)

What do you read for pleasure?
Anything I can get my hands on that doesn't have to do with school or work? No, seriously, my preferred genres are sci-fi and fantasy.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Currently I have a Kindle Fire and I love it, but since I have no experience with any other ereaders I can't fairly call it my device of choice.
If someone asked you to explain what's going on in the world right now, would you be able to? That's Alyce's challenge when she's kidnapped by aliens who want her help in creating a museum of curiosities based on Earth's culture. Why not journey down the rabbit hole with Alyce? The trip might just paint the reality you've become accustomed to in a new color...
Have you ever had a terrible secret you didn't want anyone to know? Petri does and it may get her killed. Will she overcome the odds and make good her escape? Maybe...with a little help from her friends.
Latitudes & Cattitudes

Xander de Hunter is a cat with a dream. That dream is to one day become a Purrtector. He wins a kickboxing match and is soon after approached with a request to help find the beautiful Cha-Cha who was supposed to have given the winner their medal. She's missing and this might just be his chance to shine!
As a life-long servant to the feline kind, I loved this story. It's very short, but adorable and purrfect as a bedtime story for the young animal-lovers in your life. :-)
Tales of the Fifth Guardian: Book One: The Beginning
on Oct. 21, 2015
Okay, first off, I few things you need to understand about this book. Number one, it's not a book; it's a series. An epic series, with all the complexity and necessary explanations of GRRM's A Song of Ice and Fire series or Frank Herbert's Dune series (both of which it reminded me of at times). And this is the first book with all of the explanations needed to set up the rest of the story. It is absolutely not a quick, breeze-through read, there is a lot of background information that has to be given, which causes the story to drag a bit at times but is necessary for the reader to understand what is going on. Number two, this is a story that is intended for adults. It has violence, explicit sex, and adult situations that would not be suitable for younger readers. If you are easily offended or unable to tolerate darker stories, this is not the right book for you.
Now, all that being said, I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! It's a great start to what promises to be a fascinating series. The world-building is great, the plot is interesting, and the characters are well-developed. Most of the time I was on the edge of my seat to find out what would happen next and I really think this book sets up the rest of the story very well. As long as you approach this book from the standpoint of the beginning of a saga, I don't see how you could be disappointed. :-)
Tales of the Fifth Guardian: Book Two: Bonded

Okay, once again, this is not a book. This is a complex, involved series that requires patience to let it all unfold. The second book takes up just where the first one left off, with Kerrisha's terrible vision. Through a complicated series of events, Kerrisha and her intended, Kerreth, work together with their friends and siblings to try to protect each other and their Clan while simultaneously planning a royal wedding! And the poor kids haven't even come into their full power yet!
I really enjoyed this story, but the long narratives do require that the reader pay close attention or risk missing something important. I also still feel that this is a story that is intended for adults. It has violence, explicit sex, and adult situations that would not be suitable for younger readers. If you are easily offended or unable to tolerate darker stories, this is not the right book for you. But for those who enjoy an intricate tale of adventure and mayhem, this is a great series!
