Wander Dust by Michelle Warren blog tour

We are today's stop for on the Wander Dust by Michelle Warren tour! This is a fantastic book! I was very excited to be included in on this tour and able to ask her a few questions. She also is offering one special person a lucky prize! But first, please meet Michelle.

Michelle Warren is the author of Wander Dust, the first book in The Seraphina Parrish Trilogy. She didn’t travel the road to writer immediately. First, she spent over a decade as professional illustrator and designer. Her artistic creativity combined with her love of science fiction, paranormal, and fantasy led her to write her first YA novel. Michelle loves reading and traveling to places that inspire her to create. She resides in Maryland, in a historic Baltimore row-home, with her wonderful husband.

1. What is your favorite childhood past time?

            My favorite childhood memories are those spent with my family. My parents used to take my sister and I on very long road trips. My sister and I used to make up dances to our favorite songs in the bedroom we shared. I also spent a lot of time with my wonderful grandparents. 

2. Besides writing what is your favorite job you ever had?

            I’m currently a full-time graphic designer and illustrator. Drawing for a living is a pretty sweet job! With the addition of writing, I feel very blessed!

3. Favorite subject in school?

            My favorite subjects in school were always art and art history. You will see hints of this influence in Wander Dust.

4. What do you like to do when you are not writing?

            I love reading and traveling. If I’m not working, I’ve got a book shoved in my face, or I’m planning my next trip!

5. What is your favorite holiday tradition?

            My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. I would say that the thanksgiving dinner is my favorite tradition. It’s nice to be with family and friends without the worry of purchasing that perfect gift.

Now get to know the book:

Ever since her sixteenth birthday, strange things keep happening to Seraphina Parrish.
The Lady in Black… burns Sera’s memories.
Unexplainable Premonitions… catapult her to other cities.
The Grungy Gang… wants to kill her.
And a beautiful, mysterious boy… stalks her.
But when Sera moves to Chicago, and her aunt reveals their family connection to a centuries old, secret society, she is immediately thrust into an unbelievable fantasy world, leading her on a quest to unravel the mysteries that plague her. In the end, their meanings crash into an epic struggle of loyalty and betrayal, and she’ll be forced to choose between the boy who has stolen her heart and the thing she desires most.
Wander Dust is the breathtaking fantasy that will catapult you through a story of time, adventure, and love.
