I am a self-published author of nine books and counting. There’s my YA superhero trilogy: The Time I Saved the Day, The Time I Saved a Damsel in Distress, and The Time I Saved the World. Then there’s my YA paranormal trilogy: Wolf Claw, Wolf Curse, and Wolf Cure. I also have an NA spy duology: The Bachelor Missions and In the Rogue. Finally, I have a new YA adventure series beginning with Castaways. I am a homeschool graduate and Captain America (Steve Rogers) is my muse. That is all.
Kerryl Shaw lives with her family on a hilltop farmstead, Paradise Farm. Her life is idyllic until a deadly virus spreads across the country and wipes out her family and community. Left on her own, she thinks it’s only a matter of time before she, too, succumbs to the plague and she decides to document her final days on earth in a diary. She knows no-one is left to read it so she imagines a reader and calls him Adam. As the empty days go by she becomes convinced that Adam is real. She starts to lose her grip on reality and the truth becomes blurred. Kerryl has survived a lethal disease; Paradise Girl tells of her struggle to survive the loneliness that follows.

What do you get when a jack-of-all-arts decides to write a book? 338 unconventional pages. In the same fashion that Serena dabbles in many of the fine arts, her book “Fourteen and a Quarter: Coined Fiction” dabbles in many genres. Her book of 14 intense short stories is composed on the premise that it is truer to life to know less about the arc of a human story than to know the whole. Thus, the reader will find themselves re-reading and imaging possible continuations of the stories long after the cover is shut. “Fourteen” is an edgy, yet clean musing on classic virtues such as prudence, chastity, and sobriety, and illustrates the eternal constitution of the human spirit via the paths of unchurched Americans in their lives, and even in their afterlives. Serena has a secular bachelor’s degree in Comparative Religion, which background she drew upon to create her book.
For fans of the Hunger Games (Stephanie Myer), A Court of Thorns and Roses (Sarah J Maas), Graceling (Kristin Cashore), Divergent (Veronica Roth) and Red Queen (Victoria Aveyard).
“Gorgeous, fresh writing and a feisty heroine exploring a darkly magical world where nothing is as it first seems. Change of Chaos is perfect for YA fans who want to trek through a beautifully described world alongside a cast of compelling, fiercely likable characters. Jacinta Jade is a master of writing fast-paced, authentic action scenes.” (Michelle Hope, editor to top tier authors such as George R. R. Martin)
CHANGE OF CHAOS
Change – and become who you were meant to be. The prophecy foretells that a warrior will rise to defeat one of Kaslon’s greatest threats. Young Siray is about to experience the most important moment of her life – the Change ceremony – where she will transform into her chosen animal form and take her place in Kaslonian hierarchy. It is all she has ever wanted – to live a normal life amongst her people. But when she is forced into the middle of an emerging war, she realises that sometimes, destiny is its own master. She has been chosen. And she will fight. But will she survive?
Waking up in a desolate cell, Gaia realizes she has been kidnapped by a human trafficking organization, doomed to be sold to the highest bidder and unable to remember anything before her capture. An opportune rescue by Raoul, the Prince of Kayamato, saves her from a gruesome future, and throws her into a world of luxury and privilege. As she struggles to regain her memory, Gaia learns that her rescue was no accident and finds herself in even more danger. Fighting for sanity and survival, she works to unravel the truth behind her capture, each revelation more shocking than the last. The intricate web of deceptions spun around her will shatter her world, leaving her unsure if she will ever trust again.
I am a wife and mother first and a coffee-addicted, chuck-wearing, hockey-watching, snark-spewing author second. I primarily write Young Adult, but enjoy challenging myself in other genres, like Adult Contemporary.
