Five years have passed since Gabe abandoned Rampart, deserting his destiny and closest friends. The struggles Gabe has endured to stay alive have changed him, hardening him into a man unwilling to trust anyone or anything, dealing with difficulties connecting with the outside world.
Gabe has finally found a certain paradise--a peace in solitude--until a familiar stranger shows up on his doorstep, pleading for Gabe's help.

Now he has to decide if he is truly content in his new life, or if he is willing to risk his solitary happiness for a little piece of the world he left behind.

Should he choose to accept the most important duty of his life, one failure could mark the beginning of the end for all mankind.

What is your name, where were you born and where do you live now?
My name is Wendy Owens. I was born in the small college town, Oxford, OH and currently reside with my family in Cincinnati, OH. We love our city.

Did you always want to be a writer? If not what did you want to be?
I have enjoyed writing since I was a little kid and always dreamed of making it a career one day.  My creative writing professor in college always encouraged me to give it a try, but it seemed like an impossible path.  For many years I was self employed as a freelance artist, but I always told my husband that if I could do anything in the world, I would be a writer.  In 2011 he forwarded me an article about Amanda Hocking with a little note encouraging me to follow my dreams.  I put my art business on vacation mode and jumped in with the full support of my family.  I wrote my first book in two weeks.  Now editing... that’s another story, it took me four additional months to get the book to a place where I was ready to release it.

What can we expect from you in the future?  ie More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?
I have a NA Romance set of books, Stubborn Love, which is already out, and the second one, Only In Dreams, which will be released this November. In 2014 you can expect a NA Paranormal series, but the details of that are still hush hush.

What genre would you place your books into?
YA Paranormal

Do you have a favourite character from your books? and why are they your favourite?
Uri has always held a special place in my heart.  His snarky sense of humor makes me smile and he is my kind of handsome.  The grittier the better for me when it comes to sex appeal and Uri is dripping with it.  I love him so much I decided to add book four, The Lost Years, into the series.  It explores what happened to him and the other Guardians during a five year gap between book two and three.

Do you read all the reviews of your book/books?
Perhaps foolishly, I do. They not only give me inspiration and motivation, but if my readers took their time to leave me a review I feel like they deserve my time in reading it. But I have learned, good or bad, never respond.

Would you ever ask a reviewer to change their review if it was not all positive about your book/books?
Never! A reviewer is as entitled to their opinion as much as an author is entitled to write their book the way they choose. Also, criticism can only help an author grow.

How do you come up with the Title and Cover Designs for your book/books?Who designed the Cover of your books?
Titles are usually taken from my books. My Covers for The Guardians series were created by Claudia of Phat Puppy Creations. I choose the cover artist based on the book or series and whose work I feel will fit the need the best.

Do you basic plot/plan for your book, before you actually begin writing it out? Or do you let the writing flow and see where it takes the story?
I outline every story. I start with an over all story arc, then create a story line, and finally move onto chapter summaries. However, even with this every book I have written has changed in one way or another from the outline.

How do you market/promote your books?
Blog tours and giveaways.

Have you ever suffered from a "writer's block"? What did you do to get past the "block"?
I think at some point every writer does. I keep writing to move past it. I may skip around to other story ideas until I am back in a place where the story is coming easy again.

Do you think children at schools these days are encouraged enough to read? and/or do Imaginative writing?
I’m not sure how it is in other schools, but in my children’s district they have nightly reading assigned as homework and also work on their creative writing multiple times a week in class. I hope this isn’t the exception, from what I see I am pleased.

Do you or would you ever use a pen name?

An author puts a lot of work into building their name and following, but I would never say never. I can understand why an author would if they write both YA and something much more explicit.
