Dear Agent,

For sixteen years, Lilly Elliot has forgotten who she is. But days before her seventeenth birthday, she discovers that she has a power that has been long buried deep inside of her— she can drain the life out of humans and keep it for herself, giving her the ability to stay young forever. WICKED ILLUSIONS is a completed young adult fantasy novel of 65,000 words.

The town of Ironbrook, Tennessee is more than just a little strange—its residents are trapped there. No one is allowed to move away from Ironbrook without the consequence of death, and each person is given a forewarning dream before his or her seventeenth birthday, reminding them of what will happen if they leave.

Lilly is accustomed to the weird things that happen in Ironbrook, though she longs for them to be normal. But after she accidentally brings a dead animal back to life, things just get weirder. When a classmate reveals the truth to Lilly about who she is and what they both can do, Lilly is sucked into the world that goes on behind closed doors in Ironbrook, and things are never safe there. Her loved ones—including the mysterious boy that keeps popping up in her dreams—are in danger. Will she be able to save them before their lives are stolen? And most importantly, will she be able to save herself… from herself?

I am currently working to obtain my bachelor’s degree in English with a concentration in Creative Writing from the University of South Alabama.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
