About the Author

Mandy Jackson-Beverly was born in Pyramid Hill, Victoria, Australia—population 419—and grew up around the rugged coastline and rolling hills of Tasmania. Upon moving to England, she discovered the tantalizing London fashion scene and fell in love with the concept of the creative collective. Later in Los Angeles, she found her own creative freedom among the thriving, no-holds-barred visionaries of the music video world.

Mandy has worked as a costume designer and stylist for an amazing array of creative dynamos including photographer Herb Ritts; directors Joel and Ethan Coen, David Fincher, and Julien Temple; and music icons David Bowie, Madonna, and Tina Turner. She taught art and theater high schools, is a contributor to The Huffington Post, and reviews books for The New York Journal of Books. These days she lives with her family in Ojai, California, and spins stories for her readers’ pleasure as well as her own.

When Mandy’s not writing or reading (she has a fascination with Jung), she’s cooking, painting, or on walkabout—preferably in Italy.

Mandy loves to hear from her readers. You can find her via her website at www.mandyjacksonbeverly.com. Sign up for her newsletter here: http://eepurl.com/bznX7r.

Author of A Secret Muse, The Devil And The Muse, and The Legend of Astridr: Birth.

Coco has always been artistic and independent, in part due to the tragic death of her parents when she was a small child. Her painting makes her feel close to her mother, who was also an accomplished artist. As she nears her 32nd birthday, though, she can’t shake the feeling that she is missing something, something that could give her some insight into her parents’ tragic death. Her brother has some connections through a secret society known as the Allegiance, but she wants nothing to do with them, believing them somehow responsible. Can Christopher convince her that they are actually helping rather than hurting? And can she accept their methods, not to mention their background? I’m not usually a vampire novel girl, but this one grew on me. It didn’t start out with the modern sparkly vampires, but the big reveal seemed far more realistic than some of the classics too. I enjoyed the inner character development of Coco, and the fact that she struggled against her lineage to a certain extent. I’m interested in seeing where the series goes in terms of hunting the Big Bad, and learning more about the origins of this vampire universe.
