About Untraceable:
16 year old Grace has lived in the Smokies all her life, patrolling with her forest ranger father who taught her about wildlife, tracking, and wilderness survival. 

When her dad goes missing on a routine patrol, Grace refuses to believe he’s dead and fights the town authorities, tribal officials, and nature to find him. 

One day, while out tracking clues, Grace is rescued from danger by Mo, a hot guy with an intoxicating accent and a secret. As her feelings between him and her ex-boyfriend get muddled, Grace travels deep into the wilderness to escape and find her father. 

Along the way, Grace learns terrible secrets that sever relationships and lives. Soon she’s enmeshed in a web of conspiracy, deception, and murder. And it’s going to take a lot more than a compass and a motorcycle (named Lucifer) for this kick-butting heroine to save everything she loves.

Author This or That List 

Italian Ice or Ice Cream?
I can be very specific, I will say Magnum gourmet ice cream are made with vanilla bean or chocolate ice cream dipped in thick Belgian chocolate. YUMMY!

Fall or Spring?
Fall. I love the crisp weather. Wearing sweaters and Uggs (though I wear those all year round.) And I love to cuddle.  To drink chai lattes or coffee (doused with white chocolate raspberry flavored cream – again too specific?)

Paperback or Ebook?
I love the feel of a book in my hands. I do read ebooks sometimes. Mostly Indie books or if I am beta reading or getting to read a book that isn’t out yet (Cough – Body Finder – Last echo! Ha!)

Beach or Lake?
Definitely beach. I don’t like stagnant water. It freaks me out. I also don’t like that space in a lake where you jump in and it’s very cold. * Shivers.* I love the smell of salt water and my hair always looks god at the beach b/c it is not humid

Green or Red?
I say Green. It looks better with my eyes (which are greenish blue). Call me vain. I do love what it represents – calm, cool, alive.

Urban Fantasy or Romance?
Hm this is hard. I don’t fall in a certain genre. It really depends on the book. I think every teen book need a little romance. It would be unrealistic not to have any hormones flying. But I don’t love all urban fantasy.

Morning or Night?
I am NOT a morning person. I repeat, I am NOT a morning person. I do my best work at night when it is quiet. I love to sleep too so my answer is NIGHT.

Fish or Hamsters?
Can I just say dogs? I love my dog. But I do have some beta fish and they are sweet. They always come up to the glass when I come in the room. I had a hamster once and it was a traumatic experience. Let’s just say it ate plastic and I had to put it down. It was awful.

Ketchup or Mustard?
Man I am difficult. I like to mix Ketchup and Mayo. Hey if you say it is gross, I will just say it’s very Parisian so I look cool. That’s actually where I started using it first and I haven’t stopped since. But let’s be clear, Thousand Island dressing is NOT the same thing!

Comedy or Horror?
I am not a big horror person. I get scared easily and hate having bad dreams. I am a writer with an overactive imagination so that spooky stuff freaks me out. I love to laugh. You know that deep belly laugh where you think you might pee I your pants and you can’t breathe? Love that. Well, not the peeing part, the laughing part.

iPad or Kindle Fire?
I love my iPad And Steve Jobs.

Batman or Wolverine?
Since hairy chests have never done it for me. I’ll go with batman. Though living in a cave does not sound appealing. Unless it’s the cave that Christian Bale had in Dark Knight. Then I’d be fine.
