John Lennon said it all with Imagine.  I too imagine, do you?  This is such a crazy world right now, can we find peace and dignity without bloodshed?   Don't be afraid to wish for a better world.  ~ Devyn

I hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas filled with love and happiness.  This past year has been amazing for me both spiritually and professionally.  As the end of the year approaches, I can't help but to stop and thank everyone who has been my cheerleader throughout every book.  My amazing friend Amber Clark has been with me for the last couple of years.  I wouldn't have survived if it weren't for her.  Julie Askew is another one that has been my amazing friend and beta reader.  Trust me, you wouldn't want to read a single word I write if it weren't for her insight and understanding of my writing style.  Finally, I must thank Paris for her incredible help throughout the last six books.  She really is my right-hand person and by far my biggest cheerleader.

As this year ends, I thank God for giving me the opportunity to share my stories with the world.  I'm blessed to have three beautiful and healthy grandchildren who have stolen my heart (and a lot of my writing time).  My children are happy and living a life to be proud of.  My husband has been my rock throughout our marriage and I'm so happy to take this journey with him by my side.  

Thank YOU for being faithful to my books and my characters.  You're the reason I keep writing and I'm blessed to have fans like you.  I pray that 2015 is everything you've ever wanted.  Happy New Year!

September 27, 2014    What is everyone doing these days?  I'm starting to decorate for Halloween.  I'm looking forward to cooler days and pumpkin lattes.  Right now, I'm putting the finishing touches on the information for a box set of the Light Tamer Trilogy, and writing Light Bound.  What a sad time as I do the final book.  There's a huge secret uncovered in the book and I think you'll all be excited!   On the non-paranormal side of things, Loving Me Softly will be out in 2015!  Super stoked!    I'm thankful for all of you and pray your world is painted beautiful.  If you enjoyed one of my books, please tell your friends and family.  Writing a review is another way you can help spread the word.  Thank you so much for your loyalty.    Peace and happiness.  Devyn A If you would like to contact me, be sure to click the tab above and fill out the form.  I'm happy to come out and talk to your school or book club, just send me a message.

I'll tell you a little about myself (yawn). I'm Devyn and I write paranormal YA books about the characters that live in my head.  I love reading paranormal books and love hearing about new authors.  I prefer young adult books, but will read grown-up books on occasion.  I was always considered the ‘eccentric girl’ the one with the big imagination and colorful stories.  I'm from Oklahoma City, a place I'll always call home.  Right now I live in the lush green and humid climate of New Bern, North Carolina.  I was Goth before Goth was a style, I wanted to be  Star from The Lost Boys and knew Keifer would one day find me and we'd  fall madly in love.
