Genre: paranormal YA
What if, once upon a time, I had taken that leap of faith?
Our choices not only affect us, but send tremors of change that can alter the destiny of others. Especially if you happen to construct a time-travel portal…
My name is Arizona Darley and my mom did just that.
When Olivia decided to go back in time to find the one man she was destined to, she catapulted Arizona’s life into rollercoaster of confusion. Fusion is the highly anticipated conclusion to the Portal Chronicles, which began with the YA bestseller, Portal.

Who designed the covers?
The Portal Chronicles covers were all designed by me. I even took the pictures of the moon from my backyard in New Jersey.
What was the hardest part of writing your book?
I can’t type, so typing it with my two pointers.
Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
I was pretty impressed that it made any sense at all. I don’t plan or outline, and the story did seem to go off in a weird but interesting direction. I was as confused as Arizona to start with and excited to see how it all played out. I am super-stoked at how it all came together. I learned to trust my imagination.
Do you have any advice for other writers?
I get asked this a lot, and although I occasionally garble some cliché, the truth is that I am in no position to give any advice about writing. I can’t even type! I don’t come from a writing background, and I accidentally stumbled into this. So, really the only advice I have is if you want to write, write. It’s another story if you ask me about publishing. I have learned so much over the past years. But you didn’t, so I won’t bloviate about that.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Thank you, thank you, thank you! First of all for giving a complete unknown a chance, and for taking the time out of your life to read my book. And then for sticking with me for the journey.
What were the challenges (research, literary, psychological, and logistical) in bringing it to life?
The biggest challenge is to find the readers. Marketing is a complex and ever-changing game, and it’s so important to keep up to date with what’s happening in publishing to seize any opportunities that may present themselves.
What’s next for you?
I am working on various translation projects at the moment, bringing my books to life in German, French, Spanish, and Japanese. I am also working on the new Bonfire Chronicles book, Uprising.
