Dear Readers, Writers, and Precious Patrons,
Today on All Authors Blog, we’re pleased to feature Heather Kirchoff, author of the book Dusk.
A scream pierced the silent night, echoing; flames licked up the walls, sending black smoke hurtling into the dark sky. Heat blasted into my skin, turning it red as I stood, watching the village crumble in the flames. Fear spiked within me, causing my heart to beat rapidly. My breathing became ragged as rage coursed blindingly through me.
How could they? My thoughts exploded as the buildings did. Shattering glass filled the night, falling on top of the ashes. The flames danced, leering at us as they grew higher.
"We must go!" someone cried, their voice shivering.
The breeze suddenly picked up, feeding the destruction. Tears rushed down my burnt face, leaving streak marks behind; my frail body stung as heat smacked into it. I tried to talk, but the smoke wouldn't allow it. I coughed, choking on smoke.
Seventeen-year-old Meagan Nevels is a powerful witch. After her village burnt down, taking Meagan's mom with it, she had to flee with her aunt into an unknown world. Now they're among unsuspecting humans, trying to fit in. When a prophecy strikes her, taking Meagan's breath away as she's told that she'll fall in love with a human. Meagan knows that she can't let that happen or else her secret might get out and take her and her aunt down, but she's caught in a desire to be with him. Can Meagan break what she feels for him or will all hell break loose?
Heather Kirchhoff lives in Missouri where she works at a nursing home and has one dog and a betta. She became a bookworm back in sixth grade when her teacher suggested the Phantom Stallion series by Terri Farley and instantly fell in love. Heather loves reading paranormal stories, plus some love ones here and there. Writing is her passion--it helps her escape the world for awhile, as well as reading--she doesn't know what she'd do without it. When Heather isn't writing, she is reading, taking walks, taking pictures, or spending time with her two best friends, animals, and family. Richelle Mead, Alyson Noel, and Stephenie Meyer inspired Heather to write.
