T. J. Wooldridge is a professional writing geek who adores research into myth, folklore, legend, and the English language. Before delving full-time into wordsmithing, she has been a tutor, a teacher, an educational course designer, a video game proofreader, a financial customer service representative, a wine salesperson, a food reviewer, an editing consultant, a retail sales manager, and a nanny. While infrequent, there are times she does occasionally not research, write, or help others write. During those rare moments, she enjoys the following activities: spending time with her Husband-of-Awesome, a silly tabby cat, and two Giant Baby Bunnies in their Massachusetts home hidden in a pocket of woods in the middle of suburbia; reading; riding her horse (not very well); reading Tarot (very well); drawing (also not very well); making jewelry (pretty well), making wordy lists, and adding parenthetical commentary during random conversations. She also enjoys dressing up as fey creatures, zombies, or other such nonsense at science fiction, fantasy, and horror conventions. http://spencerhillpress.com/authors_books/wooldridge.html

I'm excited to reveal the updated cover of "Milayna," Michelle Pickett's (author of PODs) paranormal romance. Thanks to the talented Robin Ludwig, Milayna has gotten a huge make-over and looks Fan-friggin-tastic! She, along with her group of other demi-angels, are going to take the world by storm June 3!
cover by Robin Ludwig Designs, INC
From the bestselling author of PODs comes an unforgettable tale of action, intrigue, and following your heart in the midst of betrayal.
It's hard being good all the time. Everyone needs to be bad once in a while. But for seventeen-year-old Milayna, being good isn't a choice. It's a job requirement. And it's a job she can't quit. Born a demi-angel, Milayna steps in when danger and demons threaten the people around her, but being half angel isn't all halos and happiness. Azazel, Hell's demon, wants Milayna's power, and he'll do anything to get it. But he only has until her eighteenth birthday, after which she becomes untouchable. With the help of other demi-angels, Milayna thwarts the trouble Azazel sends her way. Fighting with her is Chay. He's a demi-angel who's sinfully gorgeous, and Milayna falls hard. But is Chay her true love...or her nemesis in disguise? Because when she learns of a traitor in her group, there's no one she can trust...not even the one she loves.
Michelle is a wife, mother, author, reader, although not always in that order. She is the bestselling author of PODs, which totally blows her mind. Some days she still has her husband pinch her to make sure it’s not a dream.
She loves Reese’s peanut butter cups and peanut butter M&Ms and eats way too many when she writes, can’t write without a hoodie, hates to cook but loves to watch cooking shows, and loves happy endings that give her butterflies for days. She writes across genres in the young adult and new adult age groups, and loves to hear from readers and other authors. So drop her a note and say, "Hey!"
