Featured Author Shyla Colt


I want to thank LaVerne for having me over today. This book is a big deal for me, and  I love giving the inside story about it. They say you have to continue to challenge yourself in your career. Believe me when I say, Spun was a challenge. When I first started writing back when I was about fifteen, I knew I wanted to write Paranormal Young Adult Romance. When I sat down to seriously write almost 15 years later, what came out was anything but suitable for young adult. Despite my muse’s pension for liking things on the naughty side, I held out hope of one day returning to my first love. Then an incredible thing happened, New Adult.

Spun is my very first step into that world. Nevada is a young woman who grew up in the M.C. (motorcycle club) culture. With a self-centered mother, and an absentee father, she’s had no one but herself to depend on. Then she winds up in a situation that requires protection from a brother, and in steps Wizard. I loved Wizard, he was strong alpha male, who knew how and when to bend. Sensitivity might not have come easily to him, but he was willing to learn to keep the relationship developing with Nevada moving forward.
You’ll find a lot of twists, turns, and high emotion in this novel length contemporary romance.


Blurb
Born to a King of Chaos patch holder with a case of wanderlust and a self-centered mother, twenty-one-year-old Nevada Weber is used to taking care of herself. She's spent her life skating by on her wits and pure determination. When she lands in a situation, she can’t haggle her way out of, she’s forced to rely on another brother for help. 

Club enforcer Gage “Wizard” Carmody has done his job too well over the years. Icy and numb on the inside, he walks around in a prison of his making. When the bright green-eyed girl he helped raise winds up unclaimed and in need of protection he steps in seeking redemption. 
In a life where destruction lurks around the corner, they discover something with the potential to bring healing and happiness. But when you live in Chaos nothing goes as planned.

Author Bio
Shyla Colt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but has lived a variety of different places thanks to her wanderlust, interesting careers, and marriage to a United States Marine. She's always loved books and wrote her very first novel at the age of fifteen. She keeps a copy of her first submission letter on her desk for inspiration.

After a lifetime of traveling, she settled down and knew her time had come to write. Diving into her new career like she does everything else, with enthusiasm, research and a lot of prayers, she had her first book published in June of 2011. As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there's never a dull moment in her household.

She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.
