Not special. Not chosen. But she’s got magical shoes.
14-year old Karina doesn’t know what she wants, but knows what she’s found—fascinating silver shoes. Fascinating, dangerous, and potentially evil. On the upside, they do bring cool visitors. When a princess invites her to go to Whyland, of course she accepts. There’s that little “let’s destroy the shoes” detail she’s not crazy about, but hey, free trip. Alternate world. Got it?
Perhaps not. Whyland is nothing like she expected. Karina finds herself stuck in a kingdom she doesn’t understand, with no clue on who to trust. Before saving anyone, she’d better save herself—if she figures out how.
For 16-year-old Cayla, destroying the shoes is her much-wanted chance to prove her worth to her father, the king, and gain freedom. It might also be her chance to see Darian after more than one year apart. Does he still like her? Did he ever? But these are not the only questions she finds an answer for. Soon she realizes that all her learning and fighting skills are no match for the truths she’s about to face.
Step into Magic is a fun YA fantasy adventure. If you like books with friendships between girls, subtle romance, and some mystery, get Step into Magic now.

- What is on your nightstand?
A mess. But my kindle, some books, lipbalm and a glass of water are always there.
- What author would you totally fan?
- What makes you cringe?
Cucumbers in my salad when I thought there’d be none.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I like to have a good idea of where the story is going, so I have it sort of plotted out. That said, when I’m writing a scene, I go with the flow. When I follow the characters it often turns out better than the original plan, so I like to be open and flexible for that.
- Is there a word you love to use?
Really. Then it’s really fun going back and cutting it all. Not.

Thanks for having me here.
I wanted to send a pic of my cat, and I didn’t find a good pic… But since yesterday he has been away, not answering, and I thought he was lost. I was thinking I’d need to get his pic for “lost cat” signs. Thankfully, he’s been found… I’ll remember to get a good pic of him.
Yes, a good picture is always nice to have!
Day Leitao says
Yeah, I’ll get a nice pic, I just hope I never have to use it for a lost cat sign!
