About the Shadowscape Trilogy:
Shadowscape - The Stevie Vegas Chronicles is the first book in a trilogy. The second novel is Dawn of the Shadowcasters published by Lodestone Books in 2014.
Shadowscape is a fast-paced, adventure fantasy for young adult readers. It was written for my son when he was 12 years of age, and an avid skateboarder then. The main character of Stevie Vegas is very much modelled on him.
I have been writing for as long as I can remember and love to tell stories, 'seeing' them through my imagination. One of the central themes in Shadowscape is fighting the good fight and standing up for what's right. Another is the power of the mind.
Maryann will be working on the final book in the trilogy, Luminous, in 2014.
