“I longed for normality. Even our own, off-the-wall brand of normality.”  
She’s finally got things together. Mimi’s dating a hot guy and has a place in the school’s Gifted Program with her awesome friends. Yes, she still attracts the dead. But there’s only one ghost these days, and he doesn’t seem to have an awful lot to say. 
Just when Mimi’s life is looking pretty good for the first time in years, the unthinkable happens ... one of the seven gifted teens is torn from their close-knit group. The unity of their circle shattered, things begin to go terribly wrong. It’s ruining their focus—and with the threat of the Astarion cult growing stronger each day, the gifted seven need all the focus they can muster. 
In The Seventh, Mimi found her place in a circle of seven extraordinary teenagers. In The Rift, she must face what happens when the circle of seven is broken.

Author Interview

Can you tell us a little bit about where you are from?
I’m from sunny Perth, Western Australia! It’s HOT in summer and mild in winter. We have some of the best beaches in the world. I live in a winemaking region on several acres of land. I have a spoodle and two cats, and five chickens that lay eggs for us every day. They come up to the screen door and sometimes sneak inside if it hasn’t been shut properly. This is Trixie.

What does your writing desk look like? What would we find on it right this minute?
OMG *giant blush*
Okay, so I’m getting a new desk soon, a bigger one with some drawers, and also a new chair. So I will be more organized then!

Do you have any news you’d like to share with us?
I have my first adult paranormal romance coming out in January! Cover reveal in a couple of weeks. This book has something super-secret and special inside that no one will know about until it’s released!

When and why did you begin writing?
I have been writing since I was a kid and it’s simply because I love telling stories and I love words. I’ve always been fascinated by grammar and vocabulary. I’m a word nerd. I think being a big reader also had an effect on me. The more I read, the more I wanted to build my own worlds and people.

What inspired you to write your first book?
It was when I was 14 and it was Anne of Green Gables. I decided to write a book about a young girl growing up in the late 1800s, but set in Australia. It was fun and my best friend really enjoyed it but trust me, it shall never see the light of day!

Do you have a specific writing style? In other words, are you a plotter or a pantser?
Both. Pantser is my preferred style but when writing series you need to be a bit of a plotter too.

How much of your book(s) have a bit of you in the characters?
Mimi makes bad ‘dad jokes’ which is just like me. Mona is a research-lover which is also like me. Cassie is an animal whisperer like me. Drew is a literature-phile which is also like me. The only one who is absolutely nothing like me is the extroverted, junk food loving jock, Gabe.

What book would we find you reading right now?
Cadence by Lisa Swallow

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
Martina Boone and Marcus Damanda

What are you currently working on? Can you give us a sneak peek?

Do you see writing as a career? Do you write full time? Or in addition to another job?
I am just now moving to full time writing with a part time job in communications for a not-for-profit youth organisation.

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
Only that I found a couple of typos in the final version and that just KILLS me!

S.D. Wasley was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia. She has been composing literary works since before she could write – at five years of age she announced her first poem in the kitchen, improv-style. About 20 years later she earned a PhD in communications. She writes in a range of genres including young adult, paranormal, mystery, new adult romance, and literary short stories.

Her debut novel was published in early 2015 through Evernight Teen, and her first adult paranormal romance will be released on January 7, 2016. Today, she lives and writes in a wine region with her partner and two daughters, surrounded by dogs, cats and chickens.
