I have been the key hair/makeup artist for this amazing series since the first book trailer produced in 2015 at Biltmore Estate in Asheville NC.

Production for the third in this series wrapped up in May of 2017. The book will be available in July 2017.

These short films are book trailers, promoting these young adult fiction novels which have won multiple awards and been #1 on several best-seller lists including the New York Times and Amazon.

I am a huge fan of this book series myself and I'm so grateful to have been involved with this super talented crew, and this phenomenal project! I highly recommend buying these books and finding a local book signing event to get yours signed by the author.
