Dear Librarians,

It's one of the great honors in my life that I can write the story of an extraordinary young heroine not only FOR my daughters, but WITH them. It's not just my way of teaching them, but LEARNING from them as they grow into the people they are becoming.

I've written each of the Serafina novels with my three daughters, who help me outline the story, develop the characters, and refine the words. They are active and enthusiastic co-creators as we explore the grand corridors of Biltmore Estate together or climb up into the rugged beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains where the story takes place.

SERAFINA AND THE SPLINTERED HEART, the third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series (to be released July 4th) continues the dark and mysterious story of Serafina, a brave and unusual cat-like girl who prowls the shadowed corridors of Biltmore Estate amidst the splendor of the Gilded Age. Her relationship with her best friend Braeden Vanderbilt, a boy with powers of his own, is put to the test when a storm of sinister forces split Serafina away from everyone she has come to love.

I'm so grateful for your support and encouragement on the first two books in the series and can't wait for you to read the new story. Email Robert.beatty@gmail.com to enter to win a free copy.
