I have two boards in my Pinterest account I’ve used for inspiration while writing. They say to write what you know, but I’ve never lived in (or even visited) a medieval castle. I’ve only been in a couple of old forests. And despite Lianne’s close relationship with her horse, Aphotica, I’m allergic to horses and hate riding them. Luckily, Pinterest was always there to guide me!
Even though I hold a bachelor’s degree in medieval history, there’s nothing like a visual representation. Whether it was tree houses or forests, castles or gowns, horses or ornate bedrooms, I could always find what I needed on Pinterest.

The Sundering by Megg Jensen (Book Three in The Swarm Trilogy)Expected Fall 2012
After defeating the Malborn and losing the person she loved most, Lianne escapes to Chase’s homeland. With her appearance forever marked by death, Lianne feels like a monster both on the outside and the inside. She retreats into herself, fearful of what she’s become.
But she can’t hide forever.
The Malborn, damaged but not broken, send a deadly message to Lianne. They are coming for her and now she’s brought danger to a peaceful land that believed they’d driven the Malborn from their shores forever. Lianne must force herself to trust again and make the ultimate sacrifice to save everyone she loves. In a world ruled by whoever harnesses the most powerful magic, no one can be trusted – no one is safe.
I’ve been a freelance parenting journalist since 2003 and began writing YA novels in 2009. I co-run DarkSide Publishing, am a member of SCBWI, and I blog about writing while juggling freelancing, volunteering, and family life. I live in the Chicago suburbs with my husband, two kids, and our miniature schnauzer, Ace.

A medieval prize pack:
- A hand-stitched pillow made from a tapestry fragment. I actually watched the owner of RavenStone Castle put it together!
- A handmade pouch from Idiorhythmic Designs. The owner, Raechel, lives in my town so I was able to select the perfect bag (and if you read The Sundering, you know why this bag is important).
- A set of postcards and a bookmark from Mystic Moon Media.
