Red: A Modern Fairytale Retelling
by Jessi McPherson
Genre:YA Fantasy
Everyone has read the tale of Little Red Riding Hood… Such a carefree, naïve
girl who fell victim to the wolf and had to be saved by the Huntsman.
I’d like to set that story straight. It all began with a girl, a
curse, and wolf. We all have a hero inside. All it takes is to
believe. Cara knew the legends of her village but she never thought
she’d become one.
Hi all, I’m JessiMcpherson.
I live in a small town in Iowa right on the banks of The Mighty
Mississippi. I started writing when I was about 10 years old. Almost
every girl has a journal but I not only had fun stories of the day
but poems and short stories that popped in my head. I love fantasy
and romance novels and read almost daily. I like to find my
inspiration in everyday life. That’s one of my goals is to find one
thing every day that inspires me. I grew up an army brats so I have
traveled to a few places over the years. I have two amazing children
and a very amazing husband. They thankfully put up with crazy work
schedules because being a mom and a writer isn’t enough but I am also
the general manager of Sidelines Sports bar in my home town. No
matter how busy I find time for it all. I do hope you enjoy my books
and I look forward to writing more.

The United
The Realm of Light Series Book 1
by James Quinlan Meservy
Genre: YA Fantasy
KINGDOMS FALL, ONE DESTINY AT A TIME

 

Some time ago in a land since long forgotten, an evil force by the name of
Lord Yrimwaque – servant of the Threat of Rai – threatens to
destroy everything and prepare the world for a harvest. The only
thing that stands in his way are three reluctant heroes: Tyler, his
girlfriend KimberlyAnn and his best friend Blaze Morrison, who have
been recruited by the followers of the Light of Rai. Upon their
journey of knowledge, TJ and his friends are forced into an unlikely
encounter with a creature of legend, and find themselves in the midst
of an ancient battle between the Light of Rai and the Threat of Rai,
with our world hanging in the balance. As the Light of Rai teach them
to hone their various gifts and talents for the greater good of the
kingdom, faith is restored, in the hopes that they will be able to
stop Lord Yrimwaque and vanquish the evil horde he desires to unleash
upon the land. Amid plots and counter-plots, tragedy and betrayal,
victory and terror, allies and enemies, the fate of the land hangs in
the balance, as the lines between good and evil become more skewed.
But will all their efforts be enough, or will the kingdom be plunged
into darkness forever?
Literature has always been a passion of mine. I love to read, and I love to discuss
literature. My favorite genre to read and write is fantasy.
I was born in the InterMountain West of the United States. I consider my home
town to be Mendon, Ut; however, I spent my childhood years in
Hinesville, Ga, and multiple communities in Northern Utah.
I graduated from Mountain Crest High School in Hyrum, Utah, and graduated from Utah
State University with a degree in Anthropology, emphasis in
Archaeology, with minors in Russian and Geology.
I started writing in
grade school, and after many years and multiple attempts, I finally
published my first book The United.

Why I write Fantasy?

I have had a long standing love affair with the fantasy genre.  I do not recall the first fantasy story I ever read, but I do clearly remember the first fantasy story I ever wrote.

It was called ‘Dark Fang.’  I was assigned to write a creative Halloween short story in the fifth grade.  I wrote a story about a wolf who had the ability to speak, and desired to steal of the souls of men or something like that.  And that was that.  I have loved to write fantasy stories ever since.  To this day when I attempt to write a story outside of the fantasy genre, I either have to edit out all of the accidental fantasy additions, or by the end of the first draft it is a fantasy story despite my original intentions.
