About W J May

http: //www.facebook.com/pages/Author-WJ-May-FAN-PAGE/141170442608149?ref=hl and http: //www.wanitamay.yolasite.com/ Wanita May grew up in the fruit belt of Ontario - St.Catharines. Crazy-happy childhood, she always has had a vivid imagination and loads of energy. The youngest of six -- four older brothers, and a sister -- taught her at a young age to be competitive in all aspects of life. At sixteen, she began competing in athletics (track and field) and before she turned seventeen, she was representing Canada in high jump. She continued to compete, breaking Canada's JR High Jump record (1.92m - 6' 3 1/2" for those metric-ly challenged). She attented University of Toronto, and Kansas State University - winning CIAU's and becoming All-American 6x - NCAA Indoors Runner Up + more. But you're not interested in her athletic career - unless of course you're curious to know she stands 1.70m (5'7") and has jumped 20cm over her head on more than one occassion. She's represented Canada at the World Championships, World Jrs., won Francophone Games, and loved every minute of every competition. From the grueling workouts, the crazy weights she lifted on her back, the days she thought her lungs were going to spit out of her mouth for lack of oxygen, the travelling around the world and the opportunity to read - her favourite past time. Wanita and her husband run an online business, dealing in antiques and collectables - particularly jewelry and porcelain (one of the business' website: www.wadeincanada.com ). After her father passed away in 2009, from a six-year battle with cancer (which she still believes he won the fight against), she began to write again. A passion she'd loved for years, but realized life was too short to keep putting it off. Her first book, Rae of Hope - from the Chronicles of Kerrigan - is available now, along with Dark Nebula - the second book in the series. She is represented by Dawn Dowdle of Blue Ridge Literary Agency. Wanita is a writer of Young Adult, Fantasy Fiction and where ever else her little muses take her.

Our customer reviews

Rae of Hope is so good, you will not want to put it down. I love when the setting is at a boarding school. In this book it's Guilder Boarding School in England. This is one of my favorites now, can't wait to see what is next. Rae is a fifteen year old living with her aunt and uncle in New York. Her parents were killed in a fire when she was six. One day she receives an acceptance letter to Guilder Boarding School. She is wondering how they even heard about her. She packs up and leaves behind the only place she has known for the past ten years or so. Rae has no idea what is in store for her when she arrives. She meets her new roommate Molly. Molly is very into fashion and never stops talking. She also meets some more girls in her dorm. The boys are gorgeous but she only has eyes for Devon. Rae soon find out that this is no normal boarding school. Everyone here is gifted, they receive a tatu (tattoo) when they turn sixteen. It appears on their body on their birthday and then they have a special power. She also finds out pretty fast that everyone seems to know more about her past and her parents then she does. Things are not always what they seem and she doesn't always know who to trust. When Rae's tatu is revealed it is pretty cool. Oh yeah and the ending is so good. I really enjoyed reading this book. The story flowed really well and I loved the characters right from the beginning. It is full of friendships, romance, suspense and lots of action. If I could jump in a book this would be one I would love to be in. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel and reading more about Rae and her friends. This e-book was provided to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way.show more
