Smoke, Wings and Stone
Smoke, Wings and Stone
Sixteen-year-old Carrie Fleming thought she was doing a good deed when a charming Frenchman claiming to be a prince crashed the wedding she was working. All she wanted to do was make sure he didn't get into any trouble. And since he seemed infatuated with her older sister, Sara, it just made sense to ask Sara to help.
Sara Fleming just wanted to make it through her senior year and get into a great music school. She didn't care about friends or boys or any of the other distractions of high school. And she certainly didn't want anything to do with some guy who claimed to be a prince, sworn to protect the world from evil, no matter how romantic it sounded.
He wasn't an ordinary prince.
He wasn't fighting an ordinary evil
And Carrie and Sara were about to step into a world they could barely imagine…

About the Author
She had a very happy childhood, did well in school, and was a fairly obedient daughter until she went away to college. The original plan was to major in journalism. She wrote for the college paper until she realized that wasn't the kind of writing she wanted to do when she grew up. So she switched to education. That was not, perhaps, the smartest move.
Then, life happened. Jobs, rent, husband, baby, another husband, another baby, until she found herself a stay-at-home mom, about to chew her foot off if she had to watch one more episode of 'Barney.' So, she started to write again.
She still lives in New Jersey with her husband, daughter, two cats and a very spoiled cocker spaniel. Her older daughter is off in Oregon, fighting the good fight for the homeless. She loves to cook - and eat - and plays RPG games on her Xbox when she needs to decompress (Skyrim alone cost her months of her life). During the past few years, she has lost, and tragically found again, the same twenty pounds. Life is all about trying, failing, and trying harder.
She writes in her downstairs office, surrounded by her growing collection of gargoyles. Smoke, Wings and Stone in her first YA novel.
Marijon Braden is the pen name for Dee Ernst, who writes adult romantic comedy, and has lived an almost identical life.
