About the Author
Kade's Dark Embrace is my debut paranormal romance novel. I have also written and published several articles about autism. I developed a late interest in writing after my son was diagnosed with autism and started advocating on his behalf. Three years ago, I started my own website, www.AutismInRealLife.com and now blog and write articles for PsychologyToday.com.
I live in Pennsylvania with my husband, two children and our dog, Ace. My hobbies include autism advocacy, reading, tennis, zumba and traveling. New Orleans is one of our favorite places to visit with its rich culture and unique cuisine. But we also love traveling just about anywhere that has a beach or snow covered mountains.
I love reading mysteries, romances and about all things vampires, werewolves and othersupernaturals. I hope readers enjoy Kade's Dark Embrace. I have already started writing the next book in the series, about Luca, due out Fall 2012.

I really liked Kym's writing style and how the tensions were between Kade and Sydney at first. Their feelings were heart-felt and emotionally packed! As they came together it was a wondrous thing to see them finally cave and the connection it opened to them both. The ending was gut wrenching and packed with emotion as things unfolded and ended. I really liked the storyline as well. A good 4 start read.
