A young fairy, a deadly secret, and an elusive agency watching everything and everyone.
How much would you risk to uncover the truth?
Emmaline's nightmares of raging fires are the least of her problems. Between her telekinetic sisters and her personal bully, Shadela, Emmaline rarely has a moment's peace. Worse yet, her curiosity keeps landing her in the wrong place at the wrong time with disastrous results.
As societal expectations clash with her inquisitive nature, Emmaline wrestles with the consequences of her actions. Will her closest friends abandon her when she needs them most? Will she be able to protect her family from those hunting her? Above all, will the greatest home-tree in the valley explode in flames as Emmaline so desperately fears?
An extraordinary adventure exploring the reaches of trust, friendship, and faith, NeverSeen is sure to sweep you off your feet and send you soaring through a world that isn't so different from our own.

As an avid reader, one aspect that drove me crazy was how often main characters, especially children and teenagers, were written with little to no emotion, or loads of it. As in, a perpetually swinging pendulum of feelings. Which, in some cases, is accurate - but that makes it very difficult to relate to in the context of a story. After all, to function properly in day-to-day life, one must be able to reign in one's emotions and interact properly with others. So, as a writer, I tried to take care when writing scenes with strong emotion. Because emotion does not occur without reason. Sometimes the reason is not clear to the reader, but there should be some hints to the source. In this case, my main character has just experienced the worst nightmare of her life - and though the reader has no context for what she saw, I did my best to make it abundantly clear how horrifying it was. Raw emotion has its place in writing - but less is more. #amwriting #rawemotion #fear
Some creature that had taken me hostage was shaking me like doll from the inside out. I was, once again, freezing in the heat of the night from sweat coating me like I’d just taken a bath. All I could do was stare unblinking into the space in front of me, my hands iron fists gripping the edge of the mattress, like I might tumble into oblivion if I let go. My hair was plastered to my face and the back of my also-soaking shirt, and I couldn’t breathe right. It felt like someone had shoved a rolled-up sock down my throat and I was gasping uncontrollably. My heart was doing jumping jacks and somersaults. I was sure I’d drop down dead from a heart attack any second now.
