(The Light Key Trilogy #2)
Published: March 3rd, 2015
Genres: YA, Fantasy, Paranormal
Tormented after a daring escape, Cora Sandoval must find a way to stop the Arrazi from murdering innocent people and from violating, using, and killing the Scintilla for their powers. She must also accept one bitter betrayal: Finn Doyle—the Irish boy who has both a piece of Cora's heart and soul—is Arrazi...
On the verge of extinction and sought by those who would either consume or destroy them, Cora and the remaining Scintilla survivors must solve the mystery of The Light Key. If they fail, the truth will stay buried forever and mankind will pay the ultimate price.
No longer will she hide.
No longer will her loved ones be hunted.
And she will have her vengeance...even if she shatters her heart in the process.
– Red wine
· Food– Pizza. Totally pizza
· Movie– Something’s Gotta Give is one of my favorites when I need a laugh.
· TV show– I actually never watch TV. The last thing I watched was the workout DVD that’s kicking my butt. Oh, and my kids are trying to lure me into Walking Dead.
· Book (or genre)– I read a ton of YA because there’s so many amazing YA books! Soft spot for contemporary.
· Late night snack– That’s when I’ll go for the salt. Chips and salsa!
· Writing tools– laptop, legal paper, tons of post its, and inspiration
· Vacation destination– Warm and beachy
· Music– Hip Hop to work out, Big band to cook by, Flamenco for chillin’
· Way to relax– The three Bs - Book, bubble bath, bubbly champagne.
· Coffee or tea? Mocha! My caffeine must include chocolate
· Paper book or ebook? Both, though I prefer paper. If I read an ebook that I love, I will usually end up buying the physical book, too.
· Summer or winter? My daughter calls me a reptile because I’m always so cold! Give me summer or give me a blankie.
· Morning person or night owl? I’m definitely a morning person. I wake up at the crack of early to work out before my kids go to school. This is purely for my love of writing, as it gives me more time to write when they’re gone.
· Pantser or plotter?
I used to wear the pantser badge proudly. I don’t do formal outlines, but I’ve found that especially with the trilogy, it’s been really important to plot a lot of things out.
· Pepsi or Coke? I haven’t had a soda in seven years.
· Dogs or cats?
Dogs all the way! And wouldn’t you know it, I currently have a cat. I did just get a puppy Goldendoodle named, Gatsby.
Tracy Clark is a young-adult writer because she believes teens deserve to know how much they matter and that regardless of what they’re going through, they aren’t alone. In other words, she writes books for her teen self.
She grew up a “Valley Girl” in Southern California but now lives in her home state of Nevada, in a small town at the base of the Sierra Foothills. Her two children teach her the art of distraction and are a continuous source of great dialogue. She’s an unapologetic dog person who is currently owned by a cat.
Tracy was the recipient of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) Work in Progress Grant. A two-time participant in the prestigious Nevada SCBWI Mentor Program where she was lucky enough to be mentored by bestselling author, Ellen Hopkins, who taught her so much about the art of writing and cured her of her ellipsis addiction.
Her debut novel was inspired by her enchantment with metaphysics as a teen, seeing it as the real magic in life. Tracy is a part-time college student, a private pilot, and an irredeemable dreamer.
