Reading is one of my passions and I've been fortunate to have the opportunity, through my blog, to review books in my most favourite genre; paranormal. As a natural extension of that, I've decided to take the plunge and get a bit more involved in book-related "events" and thanks to Fiction Addiction Book Tours, here's my first one!
Welcome to the World of Cassie Scot; the ungifted daughter of powerful sorcerers, born between worlds but belonging to neither. At 21, all she wants is to find a place for herself, but earning a living as a private investigator in the shadow or her family's reputation isn't easy. When she is pulled into a paranormal investigation, and tempted by a powerful and handsome sorcerer, she will have to decide where she truly belongs.
As well as being a sucker for the paranormal, I'm a massive fan of the immensely awesome tv series, Veronica Mars (which basically means I have a bit of a soft spot for female PI's) so I'm very excited about the storyline of this book. It sounds like there are going to be lots of lessons learned about finding your place in the world, accompanied by a fair bit of tension!
Christine Amsden has been writing science fiction and fantasy for as long as she can remember. She loves to write and it is her dream that others will be inspired by this love and by her stories. Speculative fiction is fun, magical, and imaginative but great speculative fiction is about real people defining themselves through extraordinary situations. Christine writes primarly about people and it is in this way that she strives to make science fiction and fantasy meaningful for everyone.
At the age of 16, Christine was diagnosed with Stargardt's Disease, a condition that effects the retina and causes a loss of central vision. She is now legally bling, but has not let this slow her down or get in the way of her dreams. (You can learn more here).
In addition to writing, Christine teaches workshops on writing at Savvy Authors. She also does some freelance editing work. Christine currently lives in the Kansas City area with her husband, Austin, who has been her biggest fan and the key to her success. They have two beautiful children, Drake and Celeste.
Cassie Scot by Christine Amsden is available right now at both The Book Depository and Amazon.
