Burning Bright
by Chanda Stafford
Release Date: January 25th 2016

Three years ago, Samantha Gray killed her parents.

Haunted by their deaths, she hides her scars behind sarcasm and vintage t-shirts, counting the days until she can escape her foster home in Alegria, Arizona. Then she meets Ben, a California boy whose filmmaker parents constructed a big cat sanctuary outside of town. She's hesitant to get close, terrified he'll learn her secret.

When Ben introduces Sam to Solomon, a Bengal tiger on borrowed time whose gruesome history eerily mirrors her own, she must decide whether she’s strong enough to overcome her past and save not only Solomon’s life, but her own. And to do that, she'll need to tell Ben the truth.

Once a reader, always a reader.

I was a reader long before I wrote my first story. Something about books has always drawn me in, and I love nothing more than being sucked into a book so deeply that I eat, sleep, and breathe it until I reach ‘the end.’
Genre knows no boundaries with me. I regularly devour romances, young adult, science fiction, fantasy, and pretty much anything that strikes my fancy. Except vampires. Twilight kind of ruined that for me.
Being a reader has played an integral role in my writing. From the thousands of books I’ve read, I’ve learned cadence, form, sentence structure, and a whole litany of literary devices that help me make the words I choose sing.
I find the constant consumption of books to be an inspiration. Just this month I’ve read books on psychic development, werewolves, and a couple young adult horror novels. I’m also knee deep in the second book in a series about a plucky wildlife agent who will do whatever it takes to save the animals she loves. These stories have helped me add depth and intrigue in my own pieces and also develop interests that I never knew I had.
By both enjoying and analyzing other stories, I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t work, even though they’re both totally subjective. Except for sparkly vampires. That’s one trope I don’t think I’ll ever use, even though it worked pretty well for Stephanie Meyer.
