MELISSA DAVIS

Born in Southern Illinois, Melissa Davis fell in love with reading from an early age, so much so that she started writing when she was in the second grade. From poetry, to short stories, she has a love for it all. When she was in high school she attended Illinois Summer School for the Arts at Illinois State University, which lead her to attend the university. After graduating with a Bachelors in Education, Melissa taught for several years until her children were born, allowing her to fulfill two dreams at once: motherhood and penning her first books.
“Watch out!” Like a whisper on the wind, the warning seemed to circle around her. Abby turned to the sound, but as usual, nothing was there. Would it be too much to ask for just one place in the world where everything invisible could either be seen or completely unable to reach her? 

This was nothing new for Abby. Surrounded by spirits most of her life, Abby Marcelli had her fair share of hauntings. As a child, they were her imaginary friends, but at fourteen, she was ready to hand in the towel. From morning to night, the entities plagued her with icy cold fingers that only she seemed to feel. At home, things moved by unseen hands, appliances turned on and off, and voices bounced around the room. Abby tried her best to shut them out, but each day, they seemed to get louder. 

Home wasn’t the only place they lurked. The spirits were everywhere. Worst of all, they followed her to school like lost puppies begging for help until she had no choice but to answer them. In doing so, Abby had become the resident freak and target for the brat pack, who made it their mission to make her life a living hell. Each day, their attacks grew a little worse, and the walls began to close in around her. Her mom wasn’t any help. She was always working, and when she was home, she was always telling Abby to be normal. Not that Abby actually knew what normal was.
 
When her attempts to find a moment of peace land her in unexpected circumstances, Abby’s world is turned upside down. Latching onto a light in the darkness, Hildebranch Academy, a school for spirited kids like her. Abby was hopeful that for once in her life, she wouldn’t stick out like a sore thumb.  

Will Hildebranch be everything she wants it to be? Would she learn how to tune out the voices, or would they follow her around for the rest of her life?

A voice echoed in her mind. “Help me.”

“Here we go again.”

Another ghost, another challenge.

Life was never boring for someone as spirited as Abby. The troubled teen was starting to find comfort in the spirits that followed her around. Now that she had started to understand her abilities, Abby was more comfortable in her own skin. With new friends and a new school for teenagers like herself, Abby’s life was quickly changing.

As she returned to Hildebranch Academy, Abby was already nose deep in solving another mystery that haunted her every waking moment. When she found a mirror at a flea market, Abby had no idea what she was getting herself into as the spirit attached to it made his presence known. With her friends by her side, Abby must find the clues that will lead to where it all began.

Will the teens be able to solve his murder and bring two people back together?

Ever since the beginning, people have shared the world with the animals. Magical guardians once guided the people to treat all Earth’s creatures with reverence. The mystical winged serpent, Challis, lived in the people guiding them to promote a peaceful co-existence. When her spirit transcended from the mystical amulet to the next spirit keeper, darkness eroded her purity, making her pure magic a new vessel for darkness. When the new keeper’s reign was broken, the damage had already been done. The keepers faded into the backdrop of our history, praying that one day a new generation would restore the balance of their world. No one could have known centuries would pass, that it would take a modern world to retrieve the magic of long ago.

When fourteen-year-old Seraphina Miles was sent to live with her estranged archaeologist father, she had no idea she would be in for the adventure of a lifetime. When she finds a strange amulet hidden in the ruins of Machu Picchu, her boring summer is suddenly filled with a magic beyond her dreams. The amulet leads her to a golden egg in the middle of a burning fire. When the shell breaks, the phoenix hatchling nestled inside imprints on Sera. Their special connection sends her on a quest to find the missing stones which will give her the power to defeat the winged serpent that hides in the shadows.
