12/23/13 -Merry Christmas to everyone. 

Life has been good to me in 2013.  I've finally broken the 100K mark in book sales!  Book revisions of The Legacy of Kilkenny and The Light Tamer have kept both books best sellers.  Thank you for spreading the word and leaving reviews.  They are really what sells books!

As you may have noticed, I've had to push back the dates for a couple of my books.  We've recently moved and have had a full plate this fall.  I'm hoping to have The Great Wolf out before 1/1/14 - but I can't promise it will be available.  It will be out soon though!  I'm going to post the first chapter of The Great Wolf and Amber's Faerie Tale on their page (see the tabs at the top).

I'm in awe of all of you and I'm blessed to have the dedicated fans I do.  Without your love and support, my books wouldn't be the same.  Every single letter and note is read by me!  You are my inspiration, especially on days when I feel like I can't write a single word.  I'm going to try in 2014 to release 4 books.  I hope you ride the ride with me!

Merry Christmas, and have a beautiful New Year!

Love, Devyn

Guess what!  The Light Tamer is being made into a audio book!  I think you will be impressed with the actress who's reading the book.  I think you'll like it better than reading it.  I'm not even kidding, I got chills when I heard her read the first two chapters!!  We're just starting the process, but I'm looking forward to it being a big hit.  Be sure to click on the The Light Tamer tab (above) and see the audio cover.

Cry Me a River is on sale as a birthday present to myself.  Please share and have everyone buy it!  I need a new car :)

Thank you all for making my books successful.  You make my heart smile :D

You can now get your e-book signed for your Kindle, Nook or whatever version you have of the book through Authorgraph.  WWW.AUTHORGRAPH.COM   It is free and there are over 5000 authors on the list.  Nov 1, they made it available to people without Twitter - go check it out.  Super easy!

Thank you to everyone that has read and loved my books.  I feel like I grow as a writer with every book.  XOXO Devyn


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.

Be sure to check out the 'Upcoming Events' tab to find out about blog tours and public appearances.  You can go to my blog to see the different giveaways.

Thank you all!  Devyn
