About Fractured Light (Book #1)

Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake.

As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something even bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger.

About Fractured Soul (Book #2)
Llona will do whatever it takes to protect her new found friends and home, but the dark plot threatening Lucent Academy, a school that’s supposed to be a safe place for Auras, may be too powerful for even Llona to defeat.

This fast-paced tale of love, loyalty, and overcoming the darkness will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page!

Guest Post from Rachel McClellan...

I Gave Up Trying to be a Perfect Mom

My first child graced this world urinating, an action I worried about. Did he have a bladder problem? Would he always be a spastic pee-er? These were the kind of frivolous things I worried about with my first child.

He might've been a good baby, but I was a new mom so I pretty much screwed up any chance for him to be a normal infant. I was too busy reading book after book, trying to figure out why he's crying, why he's not sleeping, why his pooping schedule was different from my neighbor's baby.

I let the "experts" tell me when to make him sleep, what to let him eat, when to take him outside, and when to start making him walk and communicate. The poor kid probably felt like a puppet. But I did all this because I wanted to be the perfect mom.

It wasn't until I nearly killed myself with stress and lack of sleep that I realized, in a dazed stupor, what the crap? Babies have been around since like forever and somehow they make it to adults. And most are pretty normal so I've got a good chance of not screwing mine up.

This thought freed me. I no longer worried about nap times. If my kid was tired, I let him sleep. If I had to go somewhere I'd wake him up. If his pacifier fell on the floor, I didn't sterilize it. The hair on it wouldn't hurt him. If he wanted to smear food on his face, I'd help him.

Basically I just gave up trying to be a perfect mom. I let instincts kick in and together we figured it out. My oldest is now eleven and I think he's a pretty good kid. And it turns out there's nothing wrong with his bladder...he just likes to pee.

What were some common first parent mistakes you made?
