Goodreads Description:
Zara is at the center of an impending apocalypse. True, she’s successfully rescued Nick from Valhalla, but it simply isn’t enough. Evil pixies are ravaging Bedford, and they need much more than one great warrior; they need an army. Zara isn’t sure what her role is anymore. She’s not just fighting for her friends; she’s also a pixie queen. And to align her team of pixies with the humans she loves will be one of her greatest battles yet. Especially since she can’t even reconcile her growing feelings for her pixie king . . .

Unexpected turns, surprising revelations, and one utterly satisfying romantic finale make Endure a thrilling end to this series of bestsellers. 

Interview:
1. Out of all of your characters who is your favorite?
This question is made of pure evil. I think Issie is my favorite because she tries so hard to be good and she’s just human. Plus, she Can’t tie her shoes and I can completely relate to that. So, as of today, this second, Issie is my favorite in the NEED series.

2. What inspired you to change Nick from being a sweet caring guy to someone very jealous and controlling by the end?
I love Nick, but he always had signs of some control issues. I mean, he’s an alpha wolf, it’s his nature. Plus, his parents are dead. He is stuck protecting his friends and his town and he’s used to being in charge. But, I think lots of times relationships make us better and sometimes worse. For Nick and Zara, his controlling nature, which morphed into a jealous nature, did not work out. She is no beta girl.

3. If you had a dinner party and could invite any celebrities dead or alive, who would you choose?
I am not really into celebrities. I mean, what if they are disgusting eaters? Or divas? Or just not awesome. Should I go for the hot  factor or the intellectual. THIS IS SO HARD! I think I would go with Maya Angelou, Angela Davis, and Shakira. OR I would go with Alexander the Great, Hephaistion, and Jesus. Those count as celebrities right? I like that I have a girl choice and a boy choice. Wow. I should probably actually think before I answer these. 🙂

4. What inspired you to choose Norse mythology over all other aspects of mythology?
I love Norse mythology and at the time Thor (Marvel) wasn’t super popular so I felt pretty safe doing it, like I wasn’t treading on other writers’ turfs. Plus, giant wolves? Loki? It’s hard to resist, really.

5. Can you tell us a little about one of your other series please?
Sure, my next book is with TOR and it’s about a girl who has to save her mom (and eventually the world) from some hostile aliens. Sort of like X-Files meets Buffy meets Doctor Who meets um… Attack on Titan? Only no giant monsters or anything. But there is a lot of friend bonding stuff going on. Then Steve Wedel and I have another book that’s coming out with TOR, which I hope hope hope will become a series since we’ve already written the second and third ones. It’s about two kids who meet up in Oklahoma when the girl’s father investigates a report of a BIGFOOT that the boy saw. Turns out it isn’t a bigfoot though. And my third series/project I can’t announce yet, but I will be able to soon AND I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT IT! Seriously, caps excitement going on.
