Dear Librarians,

I've always loved stories where the heroine has to use her wits and skills to defeat the bad guys. BRIGHT BLAZE OF MAGIC, the third book in my Black Blade young adult urban fantasy series, is action-packed from start to finish.

As a thief, seventeen-year-old Lila Merriweather tries to keep a low profile, especially in the tourist town of Cloudburst Falls, which is full of magic, monsters, and mobsters. But when a magical war breaks out between two warring mob Families, Lila will have to figure out how to protect her friends — even if it means sacrificing herself.

I hope that you'll consider adding my books to your collection. Learn more at
