Blog Stop for Wicked Rose by Madalynn Davis

Today I'm pleased to have Madalynn Davis, author of Wicked Rose to stop by and say hello to you all.
Over to Madalynn.

Hello there!
A lot of people have been asking me lately where I got my inspiration to become a writer.  Honestly, I have to say that I got my inspiration from my mom.  One of my favorite memories from childhood is curling up next to my mother in bed while she read me a bedtime story.  As I grew older, my passion for reading continued to develop and I knew that I eventually wanted to become a writer.  I seriously started to pursue writing in my late twenties and originally envisioned myself writing adult fiction.  However, I soon began reading and writing young adult fiction when I became a high school science teacher.  I’ve been hooked on young adult fiction ever since.  

Even though the road to getting published was a bumpy one, full of unanticipated twists and turns, I am so excited and proud that I did it.  If I have learned one thing from my journey, it would be that writing is not for the faint of heart.  As soon as you get published, everyone becomes a critic.  Some critics are nice and professional while others are not.  Some people will love your book while others will not.  But, as a friend of mine always says:  opinions are like noses because everyone has one.  All that you can do is take pride in what you have done and always look for opportunities to grow.  And, of course, keep writing!
Before I leave, I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has read and supported Wicked Rose!  You are awesome

Wicked Rose 
 Still reeling from her father's murder, sixteen-year-old Noelle Hart returns to Whisper Preparatory Academy, an exclusive private boarding school in the sleepy town of Whisper, Connecticut. She tries to move on with her life, but things get off to a rocky start. Arguing with friends, dodging the overbearing Headmaster, and staying out of her nemesis' line of fire are almost her undoing.

Until she meets Gabriel Merriweather.

Over night, Noelle's luck takes a turn for the better. For the first time in her life, Noelle is the girl that every other girl at school wants to be. Once and for all, Noelle is able to step out of her older, perfect sister's shadow and be the center of attention. At last, her world is perfect.

But, all good things must come to an end.

When one of her friends is brutally murdered, Noelle becomes the prime suspect. Noelle's world is turned upside down when she learns that a secret sisterhood known as the Hive may be responsible for her friend's death and others. If Noelle and Gabriel cannot fight their way through the labyrinth of lies and secrets surrounding the Hive, then she may be next

Author Info
Madalynn Davis is not your ordinary Southern Belle.  As an author, science teacher, and law school graduate, Madalynn wears many hats.  But, even in the midst of it all, she never forgot two of her first loves:  reading and writing.  When Madalynn is not teaching or preparing for the Bar exam (cringe), she can be found sitting in a quiet corner revising one of her current manuscripts and furiously scribbling down ideas that will hopefully turn into a new book.  Madalynn currently lives in Texas.   Wicked Rose is her first published novel.
