Shattered Souls book picks!

MarymediumToday Mary Lindsay author of Shattered Souls is here to tell us what Alden’s book picks are.

But first, here is more about Mary;

Mary Lindsey's debut young adult novel, SHATTERED SOULS, is scheduled for release December 8, 2011 from Philomel/Penguin.

Having received a B.A. in English literature with a minor in drama from the University of Houston, she currently teaches acting to children and teens at a private studio in Houston, Texas.

Mary lives with her husband, three kids, two dogs, her daughter's pet rats, an Australian Bearded Dragon, and dozens of Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches.

She is represented by Ammi-Joan Paquette from the Erin Murphy Literary Agency.

Now for Alden…

Alden Thomas is a big reader and he’s been reading for a long time—lifetimes, in fact. 514X5vN2N7LSome of his favorite authors are Shakespeare, Milton, and Hugo. He’s also a fan of Twain and Poe.

This lifetime, he favors fantasy because it is a dramatic departure from fiction in his past lives. He loves the Harry Potter Series as well as others he grew up with this cycle, like Leven Thumps, A Series of Unfortunate Events and the Alex Rider Series.

He’ll read anything. Put it in front of him, and he’ll devour it. His most recent preferred reads this cycle are The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss.

On Alden’s nightstand right now are copies of The Intercessor Manual, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Hunger Games, and a book of poems by Tennyson.

Thanks Mary!

About Shattered Souls

A thrilling debut story of death, love, destiny and danger

Lenzi hears voices and has visions - gravestones, floods, a boy with steel gray eyes. Her boyfriend, Zak, can't help, and everything keeps getting louder and more intense. Then Lenzi meets Alden, the boy from her dreams, who reveals that she's a reincarnated Speaker - someone who can talk to and help lost souls - and that he has been her Protector for centuries.

Now Lenzi must choose between her life with Zak and the life she is destined to lead with Alden. But time is running out: a malevolent spirit is out to destroy Lenzi, and he will kill her if she doesn't make a decision soon.

Sounds good right?
