Mistletoe & Magic!

Read on for more about Michelle and her story, The K Word: Cameronplus a giveaway!

Meet Michelle 

Michelle MacQueen has a brain that won’t seem to quiet down, forcing her into many different genres to suit her various sides. Under the name M. Lynn and Michelle Lynn, she writes romance and dystopian as well as upcoming fantasies. Running on Diet Coke and toddler hugs, she sleeps little, works hard, and sometimes refuses to  come back from the worlds in the books she reads. Reading, writing, aunting … repeat.
 When she isn't writing, Michelle is the assistant indie manager for YA Books Central as well as a staff reviewer.

 

Meet The K Word: Cameron

Available in the YABC Holiday Anthology: Mistletoe & Magic

“You can make me feel like the world isn’t such a bad place.”

Can one simple kiss change everything?
Cameron Tucker has only ever had one person he could count on: his best friend Peyton. She’s been everything to him. Friend. Family. Confident. He needs her more than he needs his dream of becoming an Olympic runner or his desire to make his demanding father proud. 


A Christmas Eve party could ruin everything when a cruel joke crushes Peyton. And the only way to make Peyton see just how beautiful she is might be to reveal the feelings Cam has tried so hard to hide.

YABC: What was your inspiration for this story?

Michelle: I'm writing a series with Melissa A. Craven soon called Redefining Me and the K Word is a prequel to that. We wanted to write stories that tackle big issues for teenagers like how they're seen by their peers, but also how they see themselves. Sometimes, labels aren't only what other people put on us.

YABC: Tell us about your other works or projects? Where can we find your books?

Michelle: I have a contemporary series under Michelle MacQueen called the New Beginnings series as well as many fantasies under M. Lynn. My newest that just released is a Rapunzel inspired story titled Golden Curse. You can see them all at MichelleLynnAuthor.com.

YABC: When it's book haul time at YABC, how do you decide which books to request?

Michelle: ooo this is a tough one. I have a process. First, I go with genre. Sometimes I'm in the mood for an easy romance and other times I was to get lost in an epic fantasies. Those are my go tos. Then I check out the cover, but only briefly. What really sells me on a book is the blurb.
