From Publishers Weekly:
By the end of this year, I'll have five YA novels out, with two more coming out next year. And I have every intention of continuing to write YA fiction (I'm writing one NOW, as a matter of fact). But with the encouragement of my agent, I've also decided to branch out a bit and try my hand at adult romance.
Marked is about Cacy Ferry, a paramedic in post-eco-disaster Boston who moonlights in the family business of transporting souls to the afterlife. When her CEO father dies under mysterious circumstances, she has to solve his murder and prevent the company from falling into the hands of the mischievous, evil Kere--living personifications of violent death--before her handsome new partner, Eli, becomes one of the casualties.
Writing this book was SO. MUCH. FUN. For those of you who are fans of Sanctum, I know Marked might sound similar, what with mentions of the afterlife, but I promise you, this book will take you on a very different kind of ride. Boston is a chaotic canal city teeming with monsters seen and unseen, ruled by a family at war with itself. There's a lot of gritty violence (okay ... I guess that's not that different from my other books) and some major sexytimes (which is quite different from my other books). I am super-excited to be working with David Pomerico and the rest of the team at 47North so we can share Marked with you!
