Welcome to my writing blog. Today I am going to tell you a bit about my book because, well, that’s why we’re here. Next week I will delve into myself as a writer, including why most of you didn’t even know I love to write. So, let’s dive in!
Book title (Tentatively): The Secrets They Keep: Guardian Society Book 1
This is book 1 in a series. How many other books in the series? Wouldn’t you like to know! (Low key, I don’t know yet. At least five)
Alex Chambers finally graduated University and the real life she’s been promised lies in front of her. She has her own apartment, a shiny new job, and a great boyfriend; all the boxes are checked.
Just when things seem to be moving down her chosen path, she’s sideswiped. Seth, her cousin and best friend, goes missing and no one seems to share her concern. Alex’s obsession with his disappearance takes over, and she starts to see cracks in the life she thought she knew. Her uncle knows more than he’s letting on, but that road is getting her nowhere. What’s worse, the little sleep she manages is haunted by terrifying dreams that leave her exhausted.
When all leads seem to run cold, Seth shows up at her apartment in the middle of the night, desperate to save Alex from the fate breathing down their necks. The secret their fathers worked to conceal for over a decade is catching up fast, ripping Alex and Seth from the lives they built and into a world of secrets, kidnappings, and unimaginable influence.
As was hopefully clear from the description, The Secrets They Keep is an adventure story with some romance, mystery, and bildungsroman (fancy literary term for coming of age themes) components. It features a strong female lead, Alex, and lots of awesome main characters, both male and female. As Maui from Moana would say, “not a guy, girl thing”. (Sorry, I am a mom, you can expect Disney quotes in this blog. A lot). The book is targeted towards a YA/NA (Young Adult/New Adult) audience.

In future posts, I’ll do some character bios so you can get to know this great crew a bit better. Once the editing phase is complete, you guys will be the first to read my first chapter, before the book is released.
So, now you guys know a bit more about how I have been spending my free time. I am both nervous and excited to share this journey with you all! Keep your eyes on my social media for more snippets, and this blog for weekly posts :)
