Auteur

Donna June Cooper is the granddaughter of a coal miner (and the great-great-granddaughter of one of the Muscogee people) who was raised in the shadows of the Appalachian Mountains - in the beautiful hills of East Tennessee. After getting a couple of college degrees, she was lured away from her mountains by an admittedly gorgeous Italian guy who married her and carried her off to very flat (they call hills mountains down here) and very hot (no seriously, people bake cookies in their cars) Texas. Her vocations have included a little bit of everything, including a stint as an IRS tax auditor, a few years managing a bookstore, and a career in the corporate world writing technical courseware and documentation, but her avocation has always been writing. Donna loves being walked by her Jack Russell Terrier (if you know Jack Russell's, you understand), belly dancing (excellent exercise and lots of shiny costumes), reading science fiction and romance (three books at once, at times), and travel (with family in Italy and England, who wouldn't?) But, like any child of the Appalachians, she can't stay away from her mountains for long, and visits as often as she can. She takes us with her to those mountains in the Books of the Kindling. Visit her at www.donnajunecooper.com.



Texte du rabat

One terrifying premonition brings them together. Another will threaten their future. Do dreams come true? Dr. Daniel Woodruff hopes they don't, because his dreams predict a devastating future for him, for those he loves-and for the planet. His latest premonition, which blows a huge crater in his eroding sanity, holds a singular horror-the loss of a wife and unborn child. Yet another reason he can let no one into his chaotic life, least of all a perky, persistent investigative reporter he finds simultaneously frustrating and fascinating. Mel Noblett leaves no stone unturned in her one-woman crusade to save the environment. When a whistleblower in Italy proves too frightened to talk, Mel turns to a fall-back lead, an extremely eccentric, beekeeping professor who might just make the trip worthwhile. Despite their instant attraction, Mel is relieved when Daniel keeps her at arm's length. After all, she has a secret of her own-one that makes her preternaturally good at her job. And, when Daniel's terrifying visions prove cannily accurate and begin to revolve around Mel-it is a gift that could put her life in danger. Warning: Reluctant seer of a bleak future meets petite force of nature who lights up the heart of his darkness. Where there's smoke, there could be an unpredictable blaze of passion, but the rewards are oh, so sweet… Mostly Magic is the second book in the Books of the Kindling, a science fantasy romance series that focuses on Woodruff Mountain, the ancient power beneath it, and the family that has hidden its secrets for centuries. It is a story that moves from the magical beauty of Italy's old city centers to the breathtaking backdrop of the Appalachian Mountains where magic is an elemental part of the folklore. But the magic of this mountain, the magic of the Kindling, is even older and more arcane. It is a story where people who could live in your home town find themselves with abilities they don't understand and are confronted with a world that desperately needs those gifts. It is a story woven of mystery, humor, drama, and suspense, but most of all, it is a story about love. (This book was previously published by Samhain Publishing, Ltd in June 2014, electronic publication, and March 2015, print publication, and is now re-released.)
