The Rising King: Character spotlight

Character: Leo
Age: 20
Birthplace: Mohawk, Oregon. The loneliest patch of earth in the world, or so his mom used to say.
Ability: He’s a lover, not a fighter, but he’s gotten pretty good at using a sword lately.

What makes Leo unique?
He has the ability to bring calm to tense situations.

Dirty blues music.
Thick chocolate milk shakes.
And escape plan. When you live in the back yard to a magical realm, you need a really good escape plan for when all hell breaks loose. And it will. Trust him on that. 

Magic. Everyone who has magic seems a bit off, like pudding that never thickened.  
Pux. He’d exterminate every one of those nasty little faeries if he could. No one messes with his hair and gets away with it.

Dylan’s parents. He doesn’t want to dislike them, but bro, no one good treats their kid like they’ve treated Dylan. The poor guy hit the dysfunctional family lottery with those parents.

Author Bio:
Shea Berkley has a fondness for characters, whether in real life or those she makes up in her head while tending to the multitude of mundane tasks she's forced to do in order to survive. Writing gives her purpose (okay it keeps her out of trouble...mostly), and she can't imagine herself doing anything else. (well maybe a zombie for the Walking Dead, but who doesn't want to do that?). Since she leans toward the pubescent, she fits right in with the Young Adult book crowd.
