Team Purple.jpg

Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! This bi-annual event was first organized by author Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favorite authors...and a chance to win some awesome prizes! On this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author, you also get a clue for the hunt. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize--one lucky winner will receive one book from each author on the hunt in my team! That's TWENTY books on Team Purple. But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 120 hours!

Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are SIX contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the TEAM PURPLE--but there is also a red team, a gold team, a green team, a blue team, and a pink team for a chance to win a whole different set of books! That's a chance to win 120 books!

Below, you'll notice that I've listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the purple team, and then add them up (don't worry, you can use a calculator!). 


Once you've added up all the numbers, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the correct number will qualify.


Open internationally, anyone below the age of 18 should have a parent or guardian's permission to enter.

Today, I am hosting author Debbie Manber Kupfer on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt! 

Debbie grew up in the UK in the East London suburb of Barking. She has lived in Israel, New York and North Carolina and somehow ended up in St. Louis, where she works as a writer and freelance puzzle constructor of word puzzles and logic problems. She lives with her husband, two children and a very opinionated feline. She believes that with enough tea and dark chocolate you can achieve anything!


Find out more information by checking out the Debbie's WEBSITE or find more about the author's book HERE!




When Miri receives a silver cat charm from her omama, Celia, on the night before Celia dies she has no idea that the charm holds a secret, a powerful magic that saved her omama’s life and is about to make Miri’s a whole lot more interesting.

Join Miri on a mysterious and supernatural journey with her new friends, members of an underground St. Louis society known as the Partnership for Animagi, Werewolves, and Shapeshifters, better known as P.A.W.S.



Are you as crazy about shifters as I am?? Well, you're in luck!
You can find out which P.A.W.S. animal YOU are by taking this fun quiz:



Don't forget! To enter and to win a copy of Fighting Fate, Book 2 in my Joining of Souls series--and 19 other books from TEAM PURPLE--you need to know what my secret number is (keep reading!) Add up all the favorite/secret numbers of the authors on the purple team and you'll have the secret code to enter the grand prize! Just enter it here!
