*The Pendant: Callie*

The first novel in the Pendant series I wrote with my friend Susan Atwood releases tomorrow. Hooray! Congratulations, Susan, on the release of your first novel.

The Pendant: Callie
by Susan Atwood

Callie Haas thinks it’s about time she takes charge of her life and leave the family home in Kansas. The first step is taking a teaching position at Cherwell Springs College in Pennsylvania. The next step? Finding a place to live. Easier said than done, given the housing shortage in Elm Springs.

Luke Graham, computer technology whiz and Callie’s new landlord, can’t stop thinking about the new Zoology professor. Her penchant for risk-taking drives him insane. How can he keep her from injuring herself during her quest for independence if she won’t let him help her?

Complicating matters is an antique pendant with the magical power to bring soul mates together. Too bad the pendant believes Callie’s soul mate is a man she can’t stand. Luke. She is determined to prove the pendant wrong. All she needs to do is survive her debunking experiment, and keep firm hold of her heart. Easy. Right?

Thank you, Laura. It's been a blast brainstorming with you on the details that will carry through all the books in the series. I think the most fun was creating Dacien, the guardian of the pendant. And I enjoyed telling Callie and Luke's story.

I can't wait to get this one. I've been waiting for it to come out for a while.
