About Prophecy Girl:
Amelie Bennett. . . . Ending the world, one prophecy at a time.
I was born to slay Crossworld demons.
Big black flappy ones, little green squirmy ones. Unfortunately, the only thing getting slain these days is my social life. With my high school under attack, combat classes intensifying, and Academy instructors dropping right and left, I can barely get my homework done, let alone score a bondmate before prom.
Then he shows up.
Jackson Smith-Hailey. Unspeakably hot, hopelessly unattainable, and dangerous in all the right ways. Sure, he’s my trainer. And okay, maybe he hates me. Doesn’t mean I’ll ignore the wicked Guardian chemistry between us. It’s crazy! Every time I’m with him, my powers explode. Awesome, right?
Now my teachers think I’m the murderous Graymason destined to bring down our whole race of angelbloods. Everyone in New Orleans is hunting me. The people I trusted want me dead. Jack and I have five days to solve the murders, prevent a vampire uprising, and thwart the pesky prophecy foretelling his death by my hand. Shouldn’t be too difficult.
Getting it done without falling in love. . . that might take a miracle.

Cecily Cornelius-White, Psy.D. makes a habit of avoiding boredom whenever possible. She has enjoyed careers as a hand model, GAP salesgirl, movie projectionist, psychotherapist, yoga instructor, university professor, artist, dance choreographer, eating disorders specialist, psych diagnostician, book reviewer and copy editor. None of which are as much fun as writing novels.
She currently lives in Springfield, MO with two FABULOUS kids, and a schizophrenic yet well-mannered cat. She can swear in Klingon, take down an alien aggressor using only her mind (or a pair of chopsticks), and kill giant spiders without getting schmutz on her shirt.
When not singing to herself, she spends time creating new worlds and thinking up ways to make this one better…

We are very lucky here at Booky Ramblings today, Cecily has taken a moment out of her hectic tour to a post specifically for you Neurotic Mom followers. So without further ado I give you Cecily White...
Greetings blog readers! Thanks for joining us on the ANGEL ACADEMY: PROPHECY GIRL blog tour! WOOHOO!!! I, for one, am uber-psyched to be here. So let’s get to it!
Top 10 Books That Made me Want to Write:
That’s a tough one! Most of the writers I know have always wanted to write. They were the weird little kids who made up stories during math class and dressed in flowing Hobbit robes after they read Tolkien for the first time. Honestly, I’m not sure I ever really considered being a writer, because it just seemed so impractical. I mean, half the time my mom sent me to my room for making crap up. Who in their right mind would pay me for it?
It wasn’t until a few years ago during a bedtime story gone astray, when my daughter ordered me to write it all down, that I started thinking... Could I be a writer?
Of course, in retrospect, I can see inklings of it in the past, mostly linked to the books I read. Many were weird, some embarrassingly so. Anyway, here they are:
Carolyn Keene’s Nancy Drew series: Let me begin by saying, WHY THE HELL DOES NANCY NEVER SUCK FACE WITH NED NICKERSON? Is he gay? Is she repressed? Does they both harbor secret crushes on her obviously fledgling lesbian friend George? (Yeah, I would SO write that differently.)
Francine Pascal’s Sweet Valley High series: I believe it was Book 5 when Bruce Patman untied Jessica Wakefield’s bikini top while they were night swimming. I was 10 years old. SCANDALOUS!
Any Sweet Dreams book: Non-stop teen angst. Guaranteed kisses, usually while overcoming crippling self-doubt in a cliched romantic situation. WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE?
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby: Jay Gatsby. Seventh grade. ’Nuff said.
Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series: Here’s how this went...
Me- Dude, a MOM wrote that? I’m a mom. I speak English.
My Friend Meg- No, you speak American. That’s different.
Me- Shut up and hand me my damn computer.
Maggie Stiefvater’s Shiver series: Maggie Stiefvater is awesomer than chocolate and sugar-coated dreams put together. I want to stand next to her and bask in her awesomeness. I want to rub up against her and purr until I get arrested.
Any book by Michelle Rowen: Seriously... any book. The woman is a word-goddess. Verified!
Rob Thurman’s Cal Leandros series: If I could be half as clever as Rob Thurman, I would sit in a room alone and entertain myself. Because it would be the best freaking conversation EVER!
Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest: Snap! Anyone who makes me cry so hard I can’t even read the bloody pages deserves to be emulated. Or bitchslapped... I can’t decide.
Any book by Mary Janice Davidson: This woman is so, SO smart. So smart! I’m convinced only really smart people can write believable airhead geniuses.
So, bottom line, I write books because I wanted Bruce Patman to untie my bikini top while I kissed my best friend’s brother in a werewolf-infested forest and solved mysteries about secret vampires and...
Well, you get the point.
But enough about me. Tell me about you!
What books turn you on?
