About the Author

Elizabeth Mueller knew that books couldn’t bite, but even though she never admitted, she was scared of them. What she didn’t know, ironically, was that she was building her way toward a career in books. She started writing poetry when she was 9, and stories when she was 11 that make her laugh now. It wasn’t until her creative writing teacher in 12th grade made her realize there was more to writing than life. That’s when she fell in love with books. She hasn’t stopped since, feverishly working to perfect the craft late into the night. She lives with her husband, four kids, a wolfdog, and two cats. Darkspell is her first novel. You can find her at elizabethmueller.blogspot.com or AuthorElizabethMueller.com, and email her at elizabeth.mueller.author@gmail.com

More About the Author

Hi! My name is Elizabeth Mueller and I'm a YA Author. Why YA? I love connecting with today's youth in person as well as through my writing.

I started writing when I was 9. It was my way of coping with the tragic abuse in my home. I've always enjoyed getting lost in my books. It is my goal to share my life's experiences through my stories about enduring problems, failing at life and then coming out strong at the end. But is there really an end? I hope you can feel the strength in my characters as they grow!

A little something personal to sink your fangs into:
Write Here In Ephraim (writers conference in UT), I participated in an author panel. In the panel, an awesome writer had asked what got us into writing. When it was my turn to answer, I said that growing up in an abusive home drove me to escaping through my writing. My intention for saying this--and I'm not ashamed to admit --is because I know how it feels to be belittled and useless. I am not bitter about my past but grateful.

The only thing that makes me bitter is the knowledge that kids are still abused!

I've reinvented my parenting, I've reinvented my confidences, and I've reinvented myself.

My point is that, yes, even after being subjected to this awfulness throughout my entire childhood, HAPPINESS is rightfully yours. I am a published author. SUCCESS is rightfully yours.

It is PROBABLE as well as POSSIBLE to break these hellish chains and become a strong and happy person! ♥


**I've discovered a RoCkIn' publisher in PDMI Publishing; they have picked up 9 of my books (3 of which are children's books that I am illustrating myself) and counting.

Format: Paperback
Darkspell doesn't fit into a typical YA genre box. As a matter of fact, it's one of the most original books I've read this year. A richly woven drama unfolds as young Winter Sky meets two handsome and mysterious neighbors, both fighting for her affection. But one boy, the boy of her dreams--literally-- has already won her heart. But in short order her life is turned upside down as she enters the Stormhold world, a coven of powerful magic users (I'm hesitant to use the word witch/wizard here. This is really something very different.) where she is being hunted by the Shadoweaver. Suddenly everything is in jeopardy as she searches for her gift and fights to keep the boy she loves.

Elizabeth Mueller gives a great story, full of normal teen angst without tipping the scales to be annoying, she keeps us guessing, dropping nuggets for us throughout the story, but never tipping her hand. Combine that with the fantastic use of illustrations that give it almost a graphic novel feel as we read, and this is easily a five star read. I can't wait to pick this up in paperback and you should too! Mueller is a great addition to the YA world and I can't wait to see what comes next from this talented writer!

Format: Paperback
Darkspell is a paranormal, young adult romance, very different from many of the typical vampire or werewolf books. This book does have everything to do with very powerful magick practiced by a coven. At first I thought this book was about witches, but it is not. I will not go into details about the particulars of the magick, but you will like the unique magick that is found in this story.

The story centers around main character Winter and two handsome brothers, Alex and Jareth. The love triangle is alive and flourishing in this book. Winter keeps bouncing back and forth with her affection between the brothers. Personally, I really liked both brothers,though their personalities are very different.But ummm, yeah, Alex is...my favorite! This is a very character driven book, which I tend to really like regardless of the genre.

The very beginning of the book is dedicated to character development, but when the plot starts unfolding you are in for a fun ride. There are many times that you will be very surprised by what happens. Yes, I am being evasive because I want you to read this great YA book for yourself. Another awesome aspect about Darkspell, is the art work found in the novel. Elizabeth is a phenomenal artist!

Darkspell was a combination of humor, angst, spookiness, and romance. It truly kept me guessing until the end. Then...you will be anxious to read the next book in the series. You knew that was coming right?

Format: Kindle Edition
In the summer before her senior year, Winter meets the guy of whom she had recently been having some extremely vivid dreams. Not only is he her dream guy but she falls head over heels in love with him almost instantly. To complicate matters, Alex's brother, Jareth, is equally handsome and determined to win Winter from his younger sibling. While all this romantic confusion is going on, weird things start happening to Winter. These weird and scary things - shadows coming at her in the night and strange feelings of weakness overcoming her at times when she is with one or the other of the brothers - very obviously has something to do with said brothers. When a whole bunch of extended family members descend on Stormhold Manner however, Winter's life is about to change forever.

Darkspell was an interesting and at times thoroughly scary, as well as suspenseful, read. Personally I found it a little slow paced but if this is to become a series it is a good way of taking time to do some world building and to get the key characters firmly established. The characters were well crafted and so well described that I could see them in my imagination. Winter, the main character, was, according to my personal tastes far too hung up on just being loved, hugged and kissed by Alex while her very life was in danger. I really don't like female main characters being portrayed as weak or as victims needing to turn to their male counterparts to take care of them. Fortunately Winter does grow somewhat throughout the story and definitely becomes a little more self-sufficient. Another redeeming factor is that she is still mourning her father, whose death was under dubious circumstances.

Towards the end the story really picks up speed and for the final third of the book I simply could not put it down. If a fairly slow developing paranormal romance with a high powered, if slightly undecided ending, is your taste, Darkspell is definitely the book for you. (Ellen Fritz)

Format: Paperback
I was captivated within the first paragraph. Elizabeth spins a wonderful tale. Winter is a believable and relatable teenage girl. Once you pick up Darkspell, you won't want to put it down until the very end.

The detailing is overwhelmingly wonderful. The story continues spinning until the end, leaving you guessing the entire time. Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, I was caught off guard.

My only complaint is that, there were a few scenes that went a little to fast and a couple scenes where the scenes went a little to slow or got a little confusing.

But I do love the book and cannot wait to read more from Elizabeth!
