headshot_ttrent.jpgTiffany Trent has been writing since she was nine. Thankfully, she has graduated from writing Lloyd Alexander knockoffs and will soon publish her YA fantasy, In the Serpent’s Coils, the first book in the Hallowmere series from Mirrorstone/Wizards of the Coast. In high school, she won her first major writing award for a fantasy story about a Chinese assassin. In addition to writing fantasy, she also writes nonfiction and has published essays and articles about environmental issues. She has three master’s degrees and though she swore she would never go back to school, teaches English at Virginia Tech. To feed the muse, she has lived and worked in Hong Kong, mainland China, Oregon, Montana, and North Carolina. She currently lives in Virginia with her globe-trotting wildlife biologist husband and four charming felines.

Book: In the Serpent’s Coils
serpents_coils.jpgAs the Civil War ends, Corrine’s nightmare begins.

Ever since her parents died, Corrine’s dreams have been filled with faeries warning her of impending peril. When she’s sent to live at Falston Manor, she thinks she’s escaped the danger stalking her. Instead the dreams grow stronger, just as girls begin disappearing from school.

Then Corrine discovers letters of forbidden love by a medieval monk who writes of his entanglement with a race of vampiric Fey—the same Fey who haunt Corrine’s dreams. Who are these creatures and what do they want? Corrine knows only one thing for sure: another girl will disappear soon, and that girl just might be her.

In the Serpent’s Coils marks the debut of Hallowmere, a dark, edgy historical fantasy series that teens won’t be able to put down!
