Summary from Goodreads:
Quiet seventeen-year-old Elizabeth Parker is looking forward to another mellow summer with her goofy relatives: sun tanning at the beach and staying out of trouble. Which is why the thought of her younger cousin participating in what is, clearly, a setup disguised as an initiation, worries her to the point of intervention.
Midnight PromoOne that backfires … big time …
Mistaken for her cousin, Elizabeth finds herself transported to an abandoned plantation, a place deeply haunted with unresolved mystery and where horror reigns every summer between July 20 and August 13.
It is there, locked in the pitch dark, where she finds herself paired with the strange and mysterious Adam Hunt—an unexpected trespasser with his own agenda. Together, they find a list of instruction — follow the clues to various possessions in the house, store them in the backpack provided, and find the key that will grant escape.
Haunted Mansion PromoHaving snuck in to document the haunting, Adam offers to help her find the key so long as she helps him record paranormal activity along the way. But as they make their way through the house, they soon discover unexplained anomalies …
For the first time in the plantation’s recorded history, the haunting deviates from its known cycle of events, thrusting Elizabeth and Adam in a series of perilous circumstances that ensue long after the night is over.
As the last day of the haunting draws nearer, and as forces beyond their control ignite their growing attraction, Elizabeth and Adam must work together to uncover the plantations mysterious past before its too late.
Or die trying.
Warning: Occasional coarse language. Intended for Mature Young Adult audience.

How I got into writing books and advice on getting started

 Like most writers, I was obsessed with story telling from the moment I learned how to read and write. It began with short stories and poems, then later evolved into novels when I turned twelve years old. Well, one novel really. INTERTWINED, believe it or not, is the product of a preteen! At the time, it was a very different story, of course—less horror, a little more romance and riddled with all the typical mistakes young writers make, but the concept has always stayed the same. There came a time when writing novels fell to the wayside, but even then, I kept a diary all through middle school, high school and even through my early twenties. I was always writing!

When I hit my mid twenties, I decided to rewrite INTERTWINED, and its been a labor of love ever since. I never did get that English degree like I wanted, but I self-educated. I read constantly. I wrote and rewrote the same story more times than I count, and through that process, my writing strengthened, I learned what mistakes to avoid and, in time, found my stride. I also invested in freelance editing, which was the best investment I ever made as a writer. My editor, who’s working on her own novel with HarperCollins, offered incredibly helpful critiques that had it not been for her brutal honesty, I would not be the writer I am today.

Eventually, I reached a point where writing became all I could think about. So I took the plunge! I researched my options and decided to take the self-publishing route. I quit my corporate job and found a job that allows me the flexibility to write on my own schedule. It’s not easy. It requires a lot of discipline and time management, but as long as you stick with it, it becomes second nature. I’m now writing Book 2 of the INTERTWINED series! I hope to have the first draft completed by early September with the goal of publishing all three books in the series by summer of 2017. As long as I keep to my word count goals, I’m confident I can do it!

That’s the best advice I can offer—write, write, write! Read, read, read! Stick to your goals. Learn from your peers and fellow authors. Always seek ways to improve. And if you have no idea what to write or where to start, just write something, anything. All it takes is one word. Then one sentence. Then one paragraph. And before you know it, you have an entire chapter! And most importantly of all, don’t give up! It’s all about the journey. Believe in yourself and anything can happen.
