The beginning of September has arrived with swift footsteps, and the month brings the start of a new school year. As an avid reader and busy college student, I have experienced the struggle of balancing my homework with my love for books! It can be quite difficult to find the time that you need to read that new fantasy novel, when you are already occupied with a long history essay. I suppose that summer break gives us plenty of time to finish our reading list; however, there are always new books to pour over.
Despite my busy schedule and author career, I always try to devote a few hours to reading on a daily basis. There are times when I only manage to finish a single chapter before falling asleep at night. Nevertheless, you can almost always find a book hidden in my purse. After all, one never knows when they will find the perfect moment to read.
Last weekend, my friend invited me to join her at a music festival in the mountains of upstate New York. We camped in a pale green meadow, and danced to the sound of lovely folk songs. I was able to find several places for exploration, as the venue was located beside some marvelous hiking trails. After swimming in the freezing water that cascaded from a waterfall, we wandered through the center of a beautiful gorge. This was the perfect place to find inspiration for my writing.
In other news, I will be traveling to Ireland in a few days! I can't wait to reunite with my cousins and explore more. I will be sure to keep all of you updated on my new adventures. Keep an eye out for a new vlog on my YouTube channel!

Hello, my lovely readers!
Yes, it's true! The official book trailer for Fire & Ice: The Lost Dreamer has been released! After all of the hard work and rainy days of filming, the talent of local youth has resulted in a brilliant video. The cast and original music are a true representation of the second installment in the Fire & Ice book series. I hope that each of you take a moment to watch and share the trailer with your fellow bookworms. The magical adventures of Alice and Emery Hanley continue in the story of Fire & Ice: The Lost Dreamer, and I can't wait for you to return to the realm of Aisling.
On a different note, I want to take a moment to thank the incredible crowd of people who came to my latest author event at Barnes & Noble in Poughkeepsie, NY. It was so lovely to meet all of you, and I will never forget the delightful and inspiring words of our conversations. If you were unable to attend this extraordinary event, you will be happy to hear that the bookstore currently has ten autographed copies of Fire & Ice: The Elementals on the shelves! This is the perfect time to begin the series, as the second book will be coming out in December.
