Meet the Author

As a child, I used to lose myself in an imaginary world by the means of a good book. Now that I’m all grown up, I get to create my own fictional realms and make them come to life in ways that most readers might not expect. I’ve always had a passion for writing but never had the opportunity do so until now. After trying out numerous options I realized that writing was what I loved the most so when I found myself with some free time on my hands, I decided to give it a shot. As it turned out, my very active imagination helped me achieve my goals of creating believable plots with some ordinary, and some not so ordinary characters that helped the stories move along in one way or another. As I keep moving along in achieving my dreams of becoming a published author, I divide my time in between my four children and my very understanding husband.

    Great Story!

    Brought to you by OBS reviewer Dawn

    *Beware of *Spoilers*

    Great short story! It’s a page turner and I recommend you read it.

    Scarlett is an interesting lead character; we get to know her well. She stands up for herself; she speaks her mind in a time when women were supposed to keep quiet. Scarlett is an individual despite the rules of society. She’s not perfect but she’s fascinating. Her character is nuanced and her layers revealed slowly.

    Scarlett has visions/nightmares of future events; she’s had them from an early age. We learn about Scarlett’s life in the New World and the difficulties associated with two women being on their own. Centeno is descriptive but not overly so. New Blood is one of the better books that describes the New World and the religious times when so called witches were punished.

    The book deals a lot with religious zealotry; with how you can control others. Mrs. Balthazar is the perfect antagonist.

    I wasn’t fond of the fact that Scarlett dallied with a married man but I do understand why on both their parts. It revealed Scarlett’s flaws and we begin to see her morals decline.

    The description of her “change” was so well written. I felt as if I were experiencing it myself. I love when an author breaks it down for you so that you understand the physical and emotional changes.The ending was a shocker but very satisfying. I felt myself cheering for Scarlett in spite of her actions.

    New Blood is simply an enjoyable, engrossing read. I recommend it across the board – women/men/teens. It appeals to all ages.
