Click to view tour schedule

Le! Character Profile: Shay
Full name: Shayna Bridget O’Connell
Elemental Name: Terra
Elemental power: Earth
Extraneous powers: Telepathy and Empathy
Age: 17 years old (18 by the end of the series)
• Coffee, hot or cold, any time of day.
• Reading, though she doesn’t get much time for it. Her favorite book is Alice in Wonderland.
• Unexpected rainy days.
• Surfing.
• The color green.

• Being in a relationship. Shay likes to be on her own and bristles at the idea of having to check-in with someone.
• The color orange.
• Large crowds – because of her empathetic abilities large crowds wreak havoc with her emotions and mind.
• Hospitals – the only two places she can be in a hospital and be calm is the front door or Obstetrics because both places balance life and death, happiness and pain.

Shay is an only child, so she is used to being on her own but she values her relationship with Jodi and Steven more than anything. She never felt truly whole until she met them. She is fiercely protective over anyone she considers a friend and will go to whatever lengths possible to help them. Shay can sometimes be a little overbearing in her efforts to protect people, even forgetting to ask for help when she, herself, needs it. Shay tries to be honest with people but she finds it especially difficult to trust others and prefers to keep anyone besides Jodi and Steven at arms’ length.

Summary from Goodreads:
Shayna and her two best friends have the abilities to manipulate and control the four elements, earth, air, water and fire. While learning to hone their growing powers, they discover a new and malicious presence in their sleepy beach town. Someone is performing blood magic and threatens to expose their small magical community. So far only small animals have been slaughtered, but then the nightmares start.

Shayna suffers nightmares of being chased and sacrificed only to wake up bloodied and bruised. She thinks her magical blood is the ultimate target for the final blood rite. When an innocent girl, Tracy, is kidnapped Shayna knows it's only a ploy to draw her out; she can't let someone die because of her.

Summary from Goodreads: 
It was a rough start to the school year for Shayna and her friends, Jodi and Steven, but thankfully summer break is near. Trying to sort out her feelings for the new guy in town, Shayna agrees to let Jensen join her on a group date with her friends. While out they end up at a local coffee house where their classmate, social outcast Jeremy McCormick, is humiliated by his baseball star brother. When Jeremy runs away from the jeering crowd, Shayna and Jodi hear the unmistakable sound of a thousand wings chasing after him, but no one else seems to hear them. These are not like any air elementals that Shayna or Jodi have ever encountered before and they fear Jeremy has gotten himself tangled up in something too dangerous for him to handle. But when Shayna tries to help Jeremy control his magical abilities she realizes it might be the biggest mistake of her life.

By Shauna Granger
Release Date: 06/19/12

Summary from Goodreads: 
Shayna's first surfing session of the summer is interrupted by the screams of a mother who has lost her little boy in the water. Without regard to her own safety, Shayna swims out, rescues the boy, but must escape the clutches of something far worse than she could have ever imagined – mermaids.

Compelled to answer the sirens' call, the boys of Shayna's town are drawn to the sea, but when they return are afflicted by an unknown illness, a sickness which is draining them of their life force. Unable to tell anyone about the mermaids, Shayna and her friends are forced to solve the mystery before it's too late, and in doing so, Shayna will finally have to face the full force of her powers. Whether she’s ready or not, she will have to face her true nature.

About the Author 

I don't do well talking about myself. So as basics go, I have recently self-published the first two books in my Elemental Series, Earth and Air, Young Adult Urban Fantasy novels. Look for the third installment, Water, coming in 2012!

I have been working on the Elemental Series for the last four years and plan for it to be a 5 book series. It was a hard decision to self-publish but it's been an exciting and terrifying ride. 

You can find me on Facebook:

And to my readers (or fans of my covers), I have beautiful bookmarks that I would love to share with you. If you'd like one, drop me a note with your contact info and I'd be happy to send you one! 

Aren't the covers so pretty? :)
