Character Madness Monday, This week Ashley Nixon
By Ashley Nixon
Anora Silby wants her mother alive again. She’d do anything to feel her touch, hear her voice, and understand the strange circumstances surrounding her death. So when the new kid, Thane Treadway, offers outlandish answers, Anora listens.
Thane believes Anora’s mother had her soul stolen by the Cercatore di Anime, a race of soul eaters. It isn’t until Thane starts forgetting things and having random outbursts of anger that Anora begins to wonder if Thane has personal experience with the Cercatore.
Anora’s search for answers leads her into the center of a mid-world battle between good and evil—the soul and the soulless. Not only that, she is the Eurydice, the only one of her kind who can enter and exit spirit. Her gift makes her a target, and soon Anora finds herself faced with the loss of her mother or the love of her life.
Can Anora see past her grief long enough to make a decision or will she lose everything?

She has a Bachelor's degree in English Writing, and a Master's in Library Science in Information Studies. When she's not writing, she's reading, working out, or pretending she's Sherlock Holmes.
