Mary Ting left a 20-year teaching career to become an internationally bestselling and award-winning author. Her critically appraised novels span a wide range of genres and have afforded her to tour across the country with the Magic Johnson Foundation, promoting literacy and her book No Bullies Allowed. Her latest work, Helix, is the next in her award-winning International Sensory Assassin Network (ISAN) series. Ava, a female assassin for ISAN, makes her way back to the network with her memories still in fragments. One thing is clear: she now knows she has a twin sister. As Ava searches for more answers about herself and the cryptic network, ISAN begins to see her as a threat. Now, the only thing left for the femme-fatale is to join the rebels if she ever hopes to get all her answers.
Daughter of a rocket scientist and an artist, author Liana Gardner exhibits the traits of both, making her a quirky and pragmatic writer that can see a story lurking just below any surface. Her positively reviewed novels, 7th Grade Revolution and The Journal of Angela Ashby, have received numerous awards and honors. Liana’s newest novel, Speak No Evil, has been called by US Review of Books “…a very powerful novel that depicts the cruelty and injustice of the world while also highlighting the ever-present beauty that few see when struggling with dark issues.” When Melody Fisher tells the truth, evil follows. As she moves from foster home to foster home, she must stay silent with every new abuse, lest she invite something much worse. The only thing she can trust is the very same thing that saved her from the snakes that killed her mother long ago…
