The Indie Elite Welcomes Karen Amanda Hooper

The Indie Elite is thrilled to welcome author Karen Amanda Hooper (with Rhemalda Press) to our ranks. Karen’s debut YA fantasy novel, Tangled Tides, was released by Rhemalda Publishing, and her newest book, Grasping at Eternity will be released in May of 2012.

Karen was born and bred in Baltimore, frolicked and froze in Colorado for a couple of years and is currently sunning and splashing around Florida with her two beloved dogs. She's addicted to coffee, chocolate and complicated happily-ever-afters. Due to her strong Disney upbringing, she still believes in fairytales and will forever sprinkle magic throughout all of her novels.

Here is a bit about her debut novel, Tangled Tides:

Tangled Tides is the story of a human girl turned mermaid who discovers she is the only soul who can save a world of sea creatures.

“Adventure, family secrets, and sizzling romance. I couldn’t put it down!”

“This novel does for mermaids what Twilight did for vampires.” ~Addison Moore, the CELESTRA series

You can buy Tangled Tides at:
AmazonRhemalda Bookstore, Barnes & Noble.
