unwelcome“My name is Michael Howard.  I’m 16, gay, and my life is finally about to begin.  I’m getting ready to move halfway across the world to Archangel Academy, a boarding school in England.  I never heard of it, but it sounds really cool and I know that whatever is waiting for me there has got to be better than what I’m leaving behind.  It might sound lame, but I kind of think that when I get there I’m going to come face to face with my destiny.  I can’t wait to see what he looks like.”


tornErica O’Rourke’s character intro for Mo Fitzgerald from TORN, the first book in her paranormal trilogy:

My name is Mo Fitzgerald. All I ever wanted was to escape Chicago and my family’s secrets, until someone – or something – murdered my best friend. Now I’m going to find out why, even if it kills me. According to Luc, who’s got secrets of his own, it just might”.


touch of frostJennifer Estep’s character intro for Gwen Frost from TOUCH OF FROST, the first book in her Mythos Academy series:

“My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Acad emy — a school of myths, magic and war rior whiz kids, where even the lowli est geek knows how to chop off somebody’s head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spar tan guy in school, also hap pens to be the deadliest. But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos”
