While I may be a thriller and suspense writer, I also love to read fantasy and science fiction, and believe as writers we should read consistently inside and outside of our genre to stay sharp and keep our creative spirit flowing. That being said, KINDAR'S CURE is on my Goodreads shelf and I can't wait to dive into it after the release date! Michelle is a wonderful writer, and I'm excited for her on the release of her first book, and know this will be the first of many wonderful literary projects to come from her. Go Michelle Go!
And do stop by her blog (It's in the Details) and say hello! You'll find the link at the bottom of this post.

You're going to love this book, and the main character Princess Kindar is my kind of heroine. Now join me for a sneak peek into her world.
Princess Kindar of Anost dreams of playing the hero and succeeding to her mother’s throne. But dreams are for fools. Reality involves two healthy sisters and a wasting disease of suffocating cough that’s killing her by inches. When her elder sister is murdered, the blame falls on Kindar, putting her head on the chopping block.
No one who survives eighteen years of choke lung lacks determination. A novice wizard, Maladonis Bin, approaches with a vision—a cure in a barren land of volcanic fumes. As choices go, a charming bootlicker that trips over his own feet isn’t the best option, but beggars can’t be choosers. Kindar escapes with Mal and several longtime attendants only to have her eyes opened that her country faces dark times.
Her mother’s decision to close the prosperous mines spurs poverty and joblessness, inciting rebellion and opening Anost to foreign invasion. As Mal urges her toward a cure that will prove his visions, suddenly, an ally turns traitor, delivering Kindar to a rebel army, who have their own plans for a sickly princess.
With the killer poised to strike again, the rebels bearing down, and the country falling apart, she must weigh her personal hunt for a cure against saving her people.
Her YA epic fantasy, Kindar's Cure, is to be published by Divertir Publishing in May 2013. Her short story, Frost and Fog, was picked up by The Elephant's Bookshelf Press for their summer 2013 anthology.
