YA Indie Spotlight: Debi Faulkner

Hi Everyone!

For this YA Indie Spotlight, I'm pleased to introduce Debi Faulkner. Debi is the author of Summoning, a YA historical paranormal novel. 

Summoning is based on a “true” Irish witch story in which an evil vicar sells not only his soul but also that of his young servant girl, Meredith, to the devil. After learning the dark craft herself, Meredith finds herself trapped in the demon's shadow when she is accused of witchcraft. It is up to her to find the light and save herself – and those she loves – from the deal.

RATING: PG (No cussing/swearing in the book, but there is implied thematic violence and a "sell your soul to the devil" theme.)

A native Detroiter by birth, I left the Motor City in 2001 for the Netherlands with my husband (a chiropractor) and my small children. In December of 2003, we moved again, this time to Ireland. While there, I took part in a mentorship program with the Irish author, Lia Mills, who helped me in making the transition from poetry to prose and from writing verses in poems to writing chapters in novels.

In August 2006, we relocated yet again to the Netherlands. Now, if only I was fluent in Dutch . . .

The upside of this nomadic lifestyle is that I have much more time than I would have had in the states to spend with my writing.

(Spotlight hijack: That must be the secret! My writing time is hiding out in the Netherlands!!)

Summoning can be purchased for Kindle.

The reviews for this story are strong, and it is priced at $2.99.
