I discovered a shiny new author

I have to admit this isn’t a recent discovery, and it’s one I’ve been meaning to tell you about for a while. I could give you excuses, but you’ve probably heard them all and don’t really care anyway.

The new author to whom the title of the this post refers is Jennifer Lynn Barnes. She is totes amazeballs – I’m trying out some new words, so please skip over them/ignore them if they make you cringe. I’m not sure they’re really me, either, but I like to give everything a go at least once… except drugs. I steer well clear of those. And funky cheeses.

Anyway, Jennifer ‘please never stop writing’ L Barnes, is fantabulous. I began with The Naturals series, then read her back catalogue, but her piece de resistance and most recent installment, is The Inheritance Games. I have read it three (count them, one-two-three) times! Now, I discover she’s bringing out a fourth book to the trilogy tying up the lives of the brothers.

I highly recommend her. Teen, suspense, humour, mystery, puzzles, intelligence (so much intelligence), and of course the all-important romantic angles. Comparable books would be Tijan’s Insider series, or Erin Watt’s Paper Princess, but without the sex. Give her a go – if you’ve loved my other recommendations then she won’t disappoint.

About Bea Turvey apprentice author and witch

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write, I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2017 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Banished-ebook/dp/B008PGM4TQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1361913026&sr=8-1. If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you liked it - or even why not!
