Can you tell us a little bit about SHATTERED FROST, the brand-new book in your Frost Series?
The best way to describe the book is by sharing the official blurb, otherwise I run the risk of sharing too much:
Bianca Frost and her BFF Ming Lee return to Everafter to attend the Winter Ball with their boyfriends, Terrance and Prince Ferdinand. They were looking forward to a short vacation, especially Bianca, who is being bullied at school. She is looking forward to the day when she can finally graduate from high school. But all is not cute hair and fancy shoes as a mysterious count sets his sights on Bianca at the ball. When Count Jonathan Bleu kidnaps Bianca and Ming, the pair must do everything in their power to escape his clutches. In this amazing adventure, Bianca and Ming find themselves traveling down a rabbit hole, where they have to survive the madness of Wonderland in order to make it back home to the men they love. Bianca and Ming must travel to the Queen of Hearts’ labyrinth, find Bluebeard’s key and save Jack of Hearts before Bianca loses everything she holds dear.What I love about this book is the fact that you get to read chapters from Terrance's point of view. And it's one of the reasons why it took me so long to finish the book. It was very hard for me to get inside his head and write. But it was an absolute pleasure for me as a writer to get to know him better as a character. I really hope fans of the series enjoy this book.
(**This secondary aspect of the question isn't for the interview buuuut for the question: Do I call it the Frost series? First Frost? Bianca Frost? And is it a trilogy instead of a series, or a series or ongoing?) The series will be ongoing (at least as long as I can keep up the good work. ;)
Bianca Frost's mother runs the COOLEST museum. If you could own one fairy tale artifact from the museum, which would it be and why?
It's a tie between Red Riding Hood's cape and Cinderella's Glass Slippers. Mostly because I would use the cape to help me get places, my internal GPS is the worst. LOL And Cinderella's slippers because they can grant you your heart's desire.
What are your favorite obscure fairy tales?
The Three Heads of the Well and Little Rique with the Tuft.
Which fairytale villain would you never want to reform and why?
The Witch from Hansel & Gretel. I mean she made a house out of candy!
Which fairytale mode of transportation would you want to try out?
(eg. Cinderella's pumpkin coach, seven league boots, ship, flying
Cinderella's pumpkin coach! (I'm on a Cinderella kick ever since I saw the movie a few weeks ago. It was amazing!)
THIS OR THAT
- Mermaid or princess? Princess
- Prince or knight? Knight

I'll be sharing the brand new covers, as well as revealing the cover of the 3rd book, Shattered Frost, on Thursday!
