Laurisa is the author of The Rock of Ivanore, Book 1 of the Celestine Chronicles. We had the pleasure of featuring The Rock of Ivanore in one of our Summer Reading Weekly Book Giveaways this past summer in a week sponsored by Tanglewood Press. One of our winners chose to receive The Rock of Ivanore as her prize. If you’re out there, let us know what you thought about it Michelle!
For those of you who enjoyed Book 1, be on the lookout for the second book in the series, The Last Enchanter – it’s coming out this fall. So pop on by Laurisa’s blog and say a quick hello if you get the chance!
Laurisa discusses her books and her blog:
I write fantasy & paranormal books for children and teens. My first novel, The Rock of Ivanore, was released by Tanglewood Press in May 2012. The sequel, The Last Enchanter, comes out in November of this year (2013). For a sneak peek of the book cover, click HERE. [MDBR: It’s gorgeous!] A Thousand Wrongs is my official blog where I post regular book reviews, author interviews, and other topics related to books, with a particular focus on middle grade, young adult, and speculative fiction.

Here’s what Laurisa has to say about the importance of books and reading in her home:
Books have always been a priority in my home. I have read to my kids daily since they were small and have an extensive personal library from board and picture books up to adult and classic literature and everything in between. I read the books my kids read and vice versa. When I published my first children’s novel last year (The Rock of Ivanore – Tanglewood Press), my kids were really proud of me. They are the inspiration behind everything I write.
Laurisa and her son Marcum chose to review the dystopian novel Unwind by Neal Shusterman. Click HERE to read their review. Thanks Laurisa and Marcum! For more on Laurisa and Marcum, please visit our Contributors page or click on the book cover above. 🙂
