About River J. Hopkins
The stories she writes are usually a mixture of genres, including fantasy, paranormal, horror, adventure, and science fiction. She writes for new adult--that weird stage between being a young adult, and full-on adulting--and adult audiences.
River became disabled in 2014 after her third back surgery. Her surgeon implanted a Spinal Cord Stimulator to help regulate the pain from the nerve damage caused by scar tissue from her previous lower lumbar laminectomies. She is semi-ambulatory, and walks with a cane, mostly. When she needs to go somewhere that involves a lot of walking, she'll use a walker or a wheelchair instead.
Ever since she can remember, River has been fascinated with mythology, lore, and legends. For the past decade, she has researched and dreamed and worked harder than she ever thought possible to begin piecing together a rich world full of magic, and twists on some stories you thought you knew. INTO THE FORGOTTEN FOREST is just the first book in what promises to be an ever expanding fictional universe.

After Oli goes through a portal into the Forgotten Forest, her brother is left behind to answer to the Steward of the Limmikin Throne. And as she makes her way through the strange new world and beyond, she discovers new truths about her family—including the existence of a long lost sibling. Once reunited in their own realm, the Locklears make a pact to find out what their parents have been hiding from them.
Meanwhile, other players are moving across the board. Evienne and Merys worry what it means that they can't divine any possible futures in their realm. Beth, an Ageless vigilante is in town seeking answers. An Unseelie spy has infiltrated the Pack. Then there's the return of an old friend—or enemy, depending on your point of view. In secret, Veda practices with her powers with varying results, and Harper begins to see things she shouldn't.
With new allies and foes on both sides, it's a race to find the Four Treasures of the Tuatha Dé Danann. If Oli and the Pack can get their hands on all of them, they may just have a chance at stopping the walls between realities from breaking down. And as the Outcrossed untangle their own pasts, the Shadow Queen is readying her forces for an invasion, enlisting the help of a very old enemy who has no other choice but to take up her quest. But when the wolf moon rises over Birch Hollow, they'll all find out who is truly in control of the fate of the multiverse.
Oli Locklear has moved around from city to city her entire life until now, and though she'd always dreamed that magic was real she should've been careful what she wished for.
In the small town of Birch Hollow, in Western Massachusetts, the forest seems endless. Magic is everywhere. Creatures of myth and lore roam between the trees at night, people keep going missing, and there are doorways to other realms. Here, Oli will discover that she and her twin brother Xander are on the verge of becoming monsters, themselves, and that an ancient faery queen is out for their blood.
The Shadow Queen wants every one of the Outcrossed not under her thumb to die. She knows that only one of them can defeat her. It has long since been foretold. But she wants more than just their deaths; she wants to tear down the walls between the worlds.
As Oli and Xander—along with their friends—are thrown into a new reality of vampires, werewolves, faeries, magic, danger, secrets, and prophecy, they are forced to choose a path. But will the one they take lead them to the light, or down into shadow?
