The Key of Amatahns (Argetallam Saga, #1)
Janir had the misfortune of being born with one of the hated Argetallams for a father. But unlike other Argetallam children, she was mostly granted a normal childhood, away from the rest of her family. It looked as if she would live a relatively normal life as the foster-daughter of a powerful lord. Until one critical day Janir’s powers awakened and she became entangled in a young enchanter’s quest for a long-lost treasure called the Key of Amatahns..

The Secrets of the Vanmars (Argetallam Saga, #2) After her adventures with the Key of Amatahns, sixteen-year-old Janir Caersynn Argetallam returns home to find Brevia on the brink of war with a neighboring country, Stlaven. Her foster-father and even Saoven—a brave young elf warrior—think it will be safe at the castle where Janir grew up. However, while trying to unravel a looming mystery, Karile—self-taught wizard and Janir’s self-appointed best friend—becomes certain that there is danger in the mountains surrounding Janir’s childhood home and that it has something to do with Stlaven’s most powerful family, the Vanmars…

Hunter green or dark purple. Can’t decide.

Black tea with a dash of milk. Yum!

What did you do last weekend?
I was at a dog show in Maryland (where it was bloody cold) with some friends. (I’ll have photos on my blog soon.=)

Have you ever lied about your age?
Only when I couldn’t remember it!

In a word? No. I love human food way too much.

The ability to teleport would be nice.

What’s your ideal way to spend the summer?
Writing, reading, riding horses, and writing.

If you had only one day left to live, how would you spend that last day?
Oh, I’d probably spend it mostly reading and writing.

Would you ever get a tattoo?
Well, I have a fear of needles, a fear of my mother, and can be a bit vain. So…probably not.

Have you ever thrown a party while your parents were out?
Does dancing like a maniac with your younger brothers to old ABBA songs count?

The next book in The Captive series by Erica Stevens. =D

What scares you?
Needles, bees, airplanes, heights, tunnels, ghosts, heavy machinery equipped with large, spinning blades, elevators, politicians…it’s a pretty long list.

Last time you wore a fancy dress?
When I went to a local opera show with my mom. Don’t remember how long ago that was or even which opera…

Indoors or outdoors?
Indoors for work, outdoors for play!

Summer or Winter?
I prefer summer. I hate being cold, but at the same time I always look forward to Christmas!

Popcorn-salty or sweet?
Tough one! But I think I’d pick sweet caramel with candied pecans.

Stay up late or go to bed early?
Always go to bed early. Unless you don’t want to, and then always stay up late.
