I’ve been keeping this secret all year, and now that the publisher’s marketplace announcement has finally arrived, I’m SO NERVOUS. But also (almost) beyond comprehension-level excited and hope you are, too!
KINGDOM OF THE WICKED, the first book in my new series, is a YA historical fantasy that’s really a murder mystery at heart.
I can’t say much more for now, but it features some of my very favorite things as a reader; enemies to lovers, antiheroes, mystery, dark magic, and murder. I’m especially excited about the setting—19thcentury Sicily—which is enchanting even without casting any spells! (My family is Sicilian, so it’s extra special and personal.)
I honestly can’t wait for you to meet Emilia and Wrath next fall!
H U G E thank you to my agent Barbara Poelle, my editor Jenny Bak, James Patterson, and the whole team at JIMMY Patterson books. I’ve dreamed of writing this story for so many years and am grateful I get to share it with you.
More details will be coming in the following months, but that’s all I can share now. I hope, hope, hope you’re as excited as I am!
