Check it Out: Kimberly Spencer & Shimmerspell

Hi everyone! Back again for another dose of authors & books to check out! (Isn't the cover on this one gorgeous?)

Hi. My name is Kimberly Spencer and I devour young adult fiction. What kind, you may ask. Well, I’d have to say the paranormal kind—ones with boys that bite, fallen angels, bean sidhes, and even a killer unicorn or two. I wake up with those types of books on my mind and usually go to sleep the same way. Crazy, I know.

Paranormal and fantastical elements have always been exciting to me and that's why I chose to include them in my own writing. My novella, Shimmerspell, tackles faerie lore, specifically the tale of Morgen Le Fae. My goal was to create a modern faerie tale loosely based on Arthurian Legend that answered the question: How did the Faery world react to Morgen’s betrayal of King Arthur? With Shimmerspell, I’d like to think I accomplished that goal and more.

Shimmerspell is the first novella in the YA Paranormal/Urban Fantasy series, Faerie Tale Girl. I plan to release the follow-up, Limerick, July 2011.

When sixteen-year-old Jensen Meadows finds herself caught in the middle of an ancient faerie war, she soon learns that faeries aren't made of sparkly goodness. They're vicious. And worse, they're after her.

With the help of Liam Casey, she delves into their world to find her missing sister and begins to suspect that her whole life has been nothing more than a faerie tale.

But maybe some truths should never be revealed...

Random facts about me:

-In a past life, I wanted to be a singer-songwriter. Because of that, I write my stories with a melody in mind and each line must fit the arrangement before I can move on to the next chapter.

-I absolutely hated school, but somehow managed to get my BA in Psychology and MSCE in Counseling Psychology.

-My favorite authors are Rachel Vincent, Gena Showalter, and Cassandra Clare.
