When Dylan sees a girl in white in the woods behind his grandparents' farm, he knows he's seen her before...in his dreams. Only he can save her world from an evil lord—a world full of creatures he's only read about in horror stories. Worse, the human blood in his veins has Dylan marked for death...

Chosen Ones by Tiffany Truitt
The government, faced with humanity's extinction, created the genetically engineered Chosen Ones. When Tess begins work at a Chosen Ones training facility, she meets James, and the attraction is immediate in its intensity, overwhelming in its danger. Can she stand against her oppressors, even if it means giving up the only happiness in her life?
Prophecy Girl by Cecily White
Amelie Bennett was born to slay Crossworld demons. Until her new trainer, Jackson, shows up, and the chemistry between them explodes. Now she's trying to thwart the pesky prophecy that foretells his death by her hand. Shouldn't be too difficult. Getting it done without falling in love...that might take a miracle.
Books provided Lea Nolan a portal to enchanted lands where anything was possible and characters relied on their wits to wiggle out of sticky situations. Today, even though she's all grown up, she writes the kinds of stories she sought as a teen--smart paranormals with bright heroines, crazy-hot heroes, diabolical plot twists, plus a dose of magic, a draft of romance, and a sprinkle of history. She has an undergraduate degree in history and a master's in public policy and women's studies, which believe it or not help a lot in her fiction writing. She lives in Maryland with her heroically supportive husband and three clever children, who've figured out how to get out of doing their chores.
Tiffany Truitt received her MA in literature from Old Dominion University. Her debut Chosen Ones, first in the Lost Souls trilogy, is a searing look at what it means to be other and how we define humanity, as well as a celebration of the dangerously wonderful feeling of falling in love. www.tiffanytruitt.wordpress.com
Chloe Jacobs is a native of nowhere and everywhere, having jumped around to practically every Province of Canada before finally settling in Ontario where she has now been living for a respectable number of years. Her husband and son are the two best people in the entire world, but they also make her wish she'd at least gotten a female cat. No such luck. And although the day job keeps her busy, she carves out as much time as possible to write. Bringing new characters to life and finding out what makes them tick and how badly she can make them suffer is one of her greatest pleasures, almost better than chocolate and fuzzy pink bunny slippers.
Shea Berkley started out writing nonfiction (not so fun), and quickly moved into fiction (totally fun), and she knew she'd found her calling. Besides writing, her many diversions include kickboxing, reading awesome books, and hanging out with her loud and rambunctious family. www.sheaberkley.com
Tara Fuller writes novels. Some about witches. Some about grim reapers. All, of course, are delightfully full of teen angst and kissing. Tara grew up in a one-stoplight town in Oklahoma, where once upon a time she dreamed of becoming a writer. She has a slight obsession with music and a shameless addiction to zombie fiction and Mystery Science Theater. Tara now lives with her family in a slightly larger town in North Carolina, where they have at least three stoplights. www.tarafuller.com
Cecily Cornelius-White, Psy.D. makes a habit of avoiding boredom whenever possible. She has enjoyed careers as a hand model, GAP salesgirl, movie projectionist, psychotherapist, yoga instructor, university professor, artist, dance choreographer, eating disorders specialist, psych diagnostician, book reviewer and copy editor. None of which are as much fun as writing novels.
Stephanie Thomas has been writing ever since she could put letters together to form words. She decided to become an English teacher and completed her B.A. at The Pennsylvania State University. She later went on to get her Master's in writing from The John Hopkins University. Stephanie is quick to tell anyone that she's a born and raised Philadelphian, and her heart will always belong there. She currently lives in Baltimore with her husband and their doggie, Sailor. www.stephaniethomasbooks.com
