After being kidnapped, hogtied, and stuffed in the trunk of a car, seventeen-year-old Abigail Nichols’ boy problems seem unimportant.
She couldn’t be more wrong.
The boy who saves her holds her heart.
But Derick Crawford also holds secrets.
Magical beings who guide human emotions are fighting an invisible war dating back to the dawn of time, and Abigail’s one of them. The more she learns of her heritage, the less she wants to know. Armed with a very old, very massive book to teach them about their history, Abigail and Derick run away to a place where they think they can be safe and happy, only to have their troubles secretly hitch a ride.
Her history book is in a sharing mood, and it tells her to keep a secret of her own.
But has she put her trust in the wrong place?
And will the world survive if she has?

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I haven’t written in many genres. Just recently I finished a real-world thriller, and the only difference in that book is that I was able to spend more time within the character’s mind and less time building a fantastical new world with political problems and new gods and such. I rather enjoyed the real-world book. 😉
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t be afraid of edits. Someone once said, “There is no good writing, only good rewriting,” and this is a motto I stand by. That’s not to say you don’t have a nice first draft, but there’s nothing wrong with hunkering down and tearing your book apart.
Krystal Wade is happily married to the love of her life (don’t gag) and raising three beautiful children in the gorgeous state of Virginia. They live just outside Washington, D.C., and every day she wakes up to find herself stuck in traffic trying to get there.
The horrid commute gives Krystal plenty of time to zone out and think about her characters in full, brilliant details (she’s a safe driver; don’t worry). Stories give her a way to forget about the sometimes smelly strangers sitting next to her on the fifty mile trek into town (she picks up hitchhikers every day. True story. Check out www.slug-lines.com if you don’t believe us).
Krystal has been a part of organized hitchhiking for nearly fifteen years, but that’s just one small aspect of her oh-so-large life. When she’s not working, commuting, or chasing after her three children (four if you count the man), you can usually find Krystal outside talking to her chickens like they’re the cutest things in the world (they are), or training her amazing dogs how to herd said chickens (which they love), or curled up on the sofa with a good book (why can’t that be 100% of the time?).
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Well, there was a scene in one of Maggie Stiefvater’s books about a couple going into a candy shop. This scene was so real and so sweet. The more I thought about her scene, the more I pictured my characters, but not in a candy shop, in a coffee shop, sharing their first kiss. Then, because my mind always veers toward creepy…I ended that scene with a broken heart.
