Author Spotlight: Whitney Cannavina

Whitney Cannavina

I am an author, blogger, and mom to the best kid ever. On the days that are not hectic (which is hardly ever) I spend my time writing what I can. I write mostly contemporary adult romance but I think I will venture out just a little and write a few for teens to broaden my reader spectrum. I have always been imaginative making up stories and friends when I was younger, and once I had a teacher tell me how horrible a story I wrote was, that I didn’t write until just a few years ago. I realized I don’t care what her or anyone else thinks, as long as I love what I write then I am happy. That doesn’t mean I don’t want readers to love my books, I am just understanding that not everyone will love what they read and I am ok with that.

I also run a blog with two other awesome ladies called Country Gals BOOK Blog and I hope that you would take a look and see what we have going on. I was just kind of thrust into it but I love exploring new genres, finding new authors, and reading a range of books I might not have heard of before then. It also helps I love to tell other readers about some great authors.

I grew up in Southern California, and on top of being and author, blogger and mom, I also love to watch movies, read excessively, go to hockey and baseball games, and relax with just my friends and family.

I hope you take the chance to check out my books and hopefully enjoy them.

Lynn Mullican was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. When not spending time with her family and friends, she locked herself in her bedroom and occupied her time writing. She has written short stories, plays, poems and novels. Until the publication of her first novel, Bad Elements: Crystal Dragon, she has published several poems, including Possession-Obsession, Mother!, A Baby Poem, and several more.

Lynn’s writing is dark, edgy and a bit twisted. Bad Elements: Crystal Dragon is a unique tale of one woman’s journey through the vampire and werewolf infested underground fighting circuit.

Bad Elements: Crystal Dragon created many sleepless nights for her and her husband. On several occasions, she awoke her husband in the middle of the night to write down inspirational ideas, characters and sub-plots. Some nights she would stay up late writing, or lie awake for hours, mulling over ideas in her head. And with that said, Bad Elements: Crystal Dragon was born.

Sebastiano you know that no man has ever done that to me before. “Done what? You telling me you’ve never had another guy put his mouth on your pussy and give you an orgasm before? “Yes hurry up and put your mouth on me. You know…there.” “Where? Tell me sweetness.” “I want you to….to… ah… Put your mouth… there.” “I need more information cara mia. Tell me where Sierra. Say it.” I whispered into her ear as my hand travelled down her stomach stopping at the top of her sweet mound sweeping my hand back and forth from hip bone to hip bone. She buckled under my touch. “Oh God Sebastiano please don’t torture me. Just do it. Please.” Gesu Christo, I loved it when she begged. “But I don’t understand what you want sweetness.” I lied. “Tell me exactly what it is that you want me to do to you? Lick you out, give you head, go down on you. It’s not hard to say sweetness. Tell me what you want me to do with my mouth or is it my tongue you want?” She lowered her gaze to my chest. Oh hell yeah. I’d push her. Prod her. Take her to sexual heights she’s never fathomed. I’d pull out all the stops to make sure I was the one man she would never forget. “Say it.” (Sebastiano)

Shattered Veil by Tracy Banghart

Young Adult Sci-fi

Book 1 – The Diatous Wars

When everything that defines you is stripped away, who do you become?

War has invaded Atalanta’s quiet villages and lush woodlands, igniting whispered worries in its glittering capitol. Far from the front lines, 18-year-old Aris Haan, a talented wingjet flyer, has little cause for concern. Until her beloved Calix is thrust into the fray, and a stranger makes her an impossible offer: the chance to join a secret army of women embedded within the all-male military.

Aris’s choice to follow Calix to war will do more than put her in physical danger; it will make her question everything she believes about herself. When she and her enigmatic commander uncover a deadly conspiracy, her expert flying may be the only hope for her dominion’s survival…and her own.

It’s Mulan meets Battlestar Galactica, with a heroine who is strong enough to save a nation…but only if she’s willing to sacrifice everything, even the one promise she swore she’d never break.
