About the Author: …Roman Catholic
A lover of Books, Florence + Machine, The color Teal, Asian Food, Chocolate, Pandas, and The Rain.
Also A fan of writing in odd places like in bathtubs, under staircases, in a tree, or maybe zoo.
I was born in Montreal, Canada and a few years later my parents moved home to the States where I’m currently attending College. I began writing when I was in middle school most of it was just simple poetry but in my head I was Maya Angelou. I loved Why The Caged Bird Sings and always saw myself as the caged bird. I asked myself what is my thing? What am I good at? It sure wasn’t math or science and I was okay in music. In middle school I was the girl with the purple clarinet, however that did not help my ability to play; I was simply okay. I played volleyball and basketball because I am tall and figured you can’t go wrong with that.
I don’t know why I never thought about writing. As I was searching for a niche in everything else I was also writing stories about a girl searching for where she belongs and people my age going on wild adventures. One day a teacher of mine, Ms. E. McAllen, asked me what I loved to do and it finally hit me. I love being a storyteller. But I was afraid no one would want, or care to read what I had to say. Until another teacher, Ms. K. Cole gave me the pep talk that changed my life.
I would not have the strength to grow the hell that is getting published and I would not be an Author if it were not for my pen name Judyann McCole.
My Debut Novel, Adela Arthur and the Creator’s Clock, will be out this summer.
MOONRISE will be in stores Fall of 2013.
About The Book: Judyann McCole (July 26, 2013)
To Who Ever This May Concern;
I wish I could tell you the contents of this book were purely fictional. That I, Adela Arthur, was just a normal sixteen year old from Portland; that dragons, giants, elves and mermaids were just myths. Legends shared from crazy old grandparents to crazy old grandparents around campfires; after all that is what I used to believe.
I never would have thought they lived on the other side of our mirrors in a world called Cielieu. But they do…
I never would have thought there were humans, better known as Volsin that lived among them with the ability to create light from a single thought. But there are…
I never would have thought I was one of them… But I am…
I am the last Arthur and I was brought to the human world after a Volsin, filled with greed, began to strip the light from our kind.
The human world was supposed to be a safe haven… but he’s found us and the only way to stop him is to go back to Cielieu and begin training as a student in the Elpida Castle of Light.
Like I said I wish the contents of this book were purely fictional and not my life…
