Being nineteen for over three hundred years bites, and being single in New York with magical powers isn’t much better.
Eva is trying to live an everyday life in New York. When this fails, she takes a seemingly unmagical job as a translator for a wealthy American family in Spain. Eva cannot stay out of trouble for long as she runs into a friendly but hungry vampire named Louis. Eva feels drawn to this handsome, dangerous stranger who has problems of his own.
Louis’s life was just fine until Eva walked into his church. She smells like heaven. Or is it hell, always smelling but never partaking? Surely she is the devil coming to collect on his lost soul.
Scott Powell was born in Burlington, Vermont, to a father who was a police officer and a mother who emigrated from South Korea. He received a degree in marketing from the University of Las Vegas, Nevada, and a master’s degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Scott served a two-year Spanish-speaking mission for his church. He is a mixed martial artist who continues to train with his father, a second-degree black belt in tae kwon do and a kick boxer.
Besides being married to Scott for almost seventeen years, Judith Powell is a stay-at-home mom whose whole life has been full of stories. Being raised by an Irish storytelling father and a Native American mother, stories have filled her life and her head until they finally had no choice but to flow out through her fingertips.
Guest Post – Scott and Judith’s Story
In September of 2008 Scott Powell was laid off from his job. At that time his wife Judith was writing her first book. Though money was tight and the economy had taken a turn for the worst, Scott encouraged Judith to finish her book while he looked for employment.
At a rapid pace of writing ten pages a day Judith completed The Last Enchantress and on that day Scott received employment. From then on Judith continued her journey in the world of writing. During this journey in the fall of 2012, when Judith was still sending out queries to potential agents. She received a suggestion that she change the entire beginning. Scott remembered this was very difficult for Judith. She had no idea what to write in its place. She said that cutting the first ten pages of the book at that time, felt like cutting off her own arm.
Up to this point, Scott was simply giving suggestions, and helping with editing. That all changed when driving home one afternoon when Judith expressed her concerns. She had no idea how to proceed. Scott realized he needed to step in and said, “I know what needs to be done. Just leave it to me.”
Well Scott fixed that part of the book and Judith coaxed him to add more parts that he felt would help the story along. Well thousands of words later Scott then became the co-author of The Last Enchantress.
From there this couple has now come out with the John Bates Series: Rebels, Rebellion and Revolution based on what potentially could be the future of our great nation and the world itself. Their dynamic writing styles make this series very unique and entertaining with twists along the way.
Together they work as a team where Judith is the architect building the outside frame work of each and every book. Scott then comes in and does the interior design, i.e. the painting, laying of the carpet, the small details and in many ways the final touches to the master design.
It has been a lot of fun especially when they discuss things and see what might be relevant or not to the overall story line. Let’s just say Scott may be the CEO of this company but his wife is still the majority share holder so he is wary to cross that line.
