A Letter of Shadows and Hope

Dearest Reader,

It's with great pleasure that I announce the release of Shadow of the Forgotten, book two of the Kyndall Family Thrillers! I've never been accused of making my characters' lives easy and this book is no different. I do, however, believe the characters all deserve something to hope for and someone to believe in, beyond themselves. There's a lot of that in this new story, along with the suspense and thrills, plenty of action and some romance.

SHADOW OF THE FORGOTTEN by McKenna Grey and Everly Archard

I often "fall in love" with the male characters in my stories, and Jordan was no exception. The early comments between my co-author and I had us fighting over who would get Jordan (yes, writers do fall in love with imaginary people, too). He's charming, to be sure, but like his siblings, he has a fierce sense of justice, and will protect those he loves at any cost. If you've read The Dragon's Staircase, you've had a glimpse of Jordan's personality, and I hope you enjoy exploring it even more in this new installment. And if you're wondering which sibling joins Jordan for the latest adventure . . . not going to tell you yet!

I know, mean. More to come!

Affectionately Yours,



Don't miss "Blade of Death," the short story prequel, and The Dragon's Staircase, book one of the series. Enjoy!
