In M.M.'s Own Words...

Hello everyone! I’m M.M. Shelley and I would like to give a BIG thanks to Mad Moose Mama for inviting me onto her blog today so that I could share my latest book with you!

Mishap & Chaos
This is the second installment in my Mishap Trilogy and it’s about twin sisters, Grasiella and Tatiana. Latina girls who seem to be normal teenage girls, with normal teenage crushes, I said “seem to be” because in reality they are two of the most gifted and powerful girls in the world. The problem is they don’t know how special and unique they are. They also don’t realize that their heritage goes back thousands of years and spans not just continents but solar systems as well.

Tatiana Najera
Youngest of the twins, she writes the music and lyrics and is the lead singer in her band Onyx Quartz. She always travels with her guitar and finds inspiration for her music in the places and people she meets.

She has always felt over shadowed by her twin who seems to excel in just about everything she does, where as Tatiana lives in the moment and lives a more carefree life.

Although Tatiana is about to discover that her magic is just as strong as her twin and that she has her own gifts.

Grasiella Najera
Oldest of the twins, she is very active with martial arts and track and field. The craft of magic comes easy to her and she is a diligent student.

While visiting her grandmother in Hawaii, she has found her time spent discovering the truth about family secrets and how they can affect all of their lives.

In the process of learning about their unique heritage, Grasiella and her twin may end up saving not only their own lives, but the fates of everyone they had come to care about.

Twins Grasiella & Tatiana are hated and feared by the magical race to which they belong.

Deep within the Hawaiian Islands is a hidden danger an island witch who wants nothing more then to end the line of Pele, the fire goddess. Her influence has breached Pele’s inner circle.

The twins must face the consequences of a freed Mnemosyne who no longer stands alone and wants nothing more than to destroy them. Others from Mnemosyne’s world have traveled to earth with unclear intentions.

Grasiella and Tatiana’s only focus is to find their missing grandmother. Risking everything, not knowing if she is dead or alive...
