I was a high school math teacher until this year, when I retired to write full time.

I am a choco-holic!  But only milk chocolate 🙂 .

I teach a bible study class for teens at 6 am every morning.  Yup, 6 am!  You read that right 😉 .

Today, I am hosting Lynne Matson on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!  Lynne Matson is the author of the acclaimed Nil series, a thrilling trilogy in which teens trapped on a mysterious island have exactly 365 days to escape–or die. Her books have been translated into several languages and are currently nominated for numerous state awards. A former lawyer, Lynne is now a full-time writer. She lives in Florida with her husband and four sons. Cookies are her kryptonite, especially Thin Mints.

Featured book by Lynne Matson, Nil on Fire



Despite Rives and Skye’s attempt to destroy Nil, the island remains. And back in this world, Nil won’t let Skye go. Haunted by a darkness she can’t ignore, Skye wrestles with Nil nightmares that worsen by the day and threaten to tear her apart. As the island grows in power, Skye fights to keep her mind intact. Soon Skye realizes that to break free of Nil, she must end Nil’s vicious cycle once and for all–and she can’t do it alone.

Who are Nil’s new arrivals? Who will return to the island? And who will survive in the end? In this thrilling final installment of the Nil series, the stakes have never been higher.

Losing isn’t an option, but winning will cost Skye everything.

And now…NIL ON FIRE Exclusive YASH Bonus Material!

As y’all may know, NIL ON FIRE is the third–and final–book in a trilogy. This trilogy, also know as the Nil series, is one about a mysterious island (named Nil) where teens have exactly one year to escape–or they die. And, as y’all know, when all you want time to do is slow down…it tends to fly even faster.

So the third book? It wraps up the series. It has characters from books one and two, and (I hope!:D) answers ALL THE QUESTIONS and GIVES ALL THE FEELS.
For YASH, along with my NIL ON FIRE story board, I decided to share five of my favorite quotes from NIL ON FIRE.


Here’s the NOF story board….

NIL ON FIRE mood board

And here are five of my favorite NOF quotes:

“I know what Nil wants. It wants you.”

-“Nil’s a wild card, always, and she loves to throw in a twist.”

“Know there is power in whatever choice you make.”

“Time gave and time took, because time always was. But now, time bled like an island wound.”

“Rives must live, and Nil must die. It was that simple.”

And there you go! Happy YASH hunting, and happy reading!:)
