Please welcome to Lizzyland two talented authors who’ve combined their awesomeness into one book for you, Julia Crane and Heather Adkins (writing as Nolia McCarty). Together they wrote, Eternal Youth.
Summary: The six years following the abrupt death of her father were the worst of Calista Bishoff’s life. Frightened by her own mortality, Callie’s mom threw herself into a search for the Fountain of Youth—and dragged Callie along with her.
Callie should have loved traveling, but instead she hated every minute. When one more failed search sends her mother into depression, they finally return home to California. Sixteen-year-old Callie is ready to hang with her friends and be normal for as long as she can.
But, an unplanned trip to Bermuda with her grandmother throws Callie’s plans awry, and there’s more in store for Callie and her mom than just a simple beach vacation. Callie’s life is turned inside out as she finds herself in a very different world than the one she knows—
Where things exist that she never dreamed were real.
Julia crane is the author of the Coexist: Keegan’s Chronicles. She has a bachelors degree in criminal justice. Julia has believed in magical creatures since the day her grandmother first told her an Irish tale. Growing up her mother greatly encouraged reading and using your imagination. Although she’s spent most of her life on the US east coast, she currently lives in Dubai with her husband and three children. She can be found (on most days) at http://juliacraneauthor.com/
Heather Adkins is an independent fiction novelist and avid bibliophile with the library to prove it.
Heather started writing sixteen years ago when she really wanted to be like R.L. Stine. Several never-to-be-seen novels later, she may have changed her mind a bit and started writing whatever she felt was right. To date, she has dabbled in numerous genres including chick lit, historical romance, horror, mystery, and various forms of the paranormal. Her influences include Jennifer Crusie, Laurell K Hamilton, Kim Harrison, and Jim Butcher. She first began publishing her work in June 2011, much to the chagrin of her mother.
She has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, though all that got her in the end was a shattered pinkie finger that no longer bends. On the bright side, she types faster with nine fingers than most people do with ten. She loves to travel and would give her good pinkie and her soul for a cottage in Ireland where she could write in peace. As it is, she has to fight through a lifetime’s worth of distractions just to write ten sentences. She also enjoys gardening, cooking, and reading when she has time to do so.
She is the author of paranormal mystery “The Temple” and fantasy/romance “Abigail”, as well as upcoming chick lit “Constant State of Disaster”. A practicing Witch, Heather lives in North Central Kentucky with a house full of animals and the love of her life–all of whom drive her crazy.
