YA Feature: L.B. Shire

 The Author: L.B. Shire

I've been writing for as long as I can remember. I recently found old notebooks with stories I had penned as a child hidden away in a storage bin in our barn. Those were quite interesting to look through. They consisted of adventurous women, horses and in most of the stories handsome cowboys :) Not a whole lot has changed over the years!

When not writing, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, camping and summer BBQ's. I love to ride my horses in the mountains around my home, and when not doing any of those activities, I read and write!


Two years ago I made the decision that I wanted to try and become published. I read everything I could get my hands on of the craft of writing, read other's blogs, and researched as much as I could. My first YA short story was published in August of 2012 and is titled: The Dark Blood Brotherhood Book One: First Bite. Book two is titled: The Choice and was released November 14th. The third installment should be released next year sometime.

The books: The Dark Blood Brotherhood series!

Inspiration behind the story- This story came about after several weeks of coyotes howling every night on my back property. Each night I would wake to those lonesome calls into the clear night sky with my muse screaming to be let loose. Before I knew it, The Dark Blood Brotherhood was born.

Here's the Blurb:  

Madaline 'Maddie' Reed spends her restless and lonely nights exploring the eerie forest that borders her relatives manor. It is here in the unnerving shadows and darkness of these woods the fight for her life begins, and one kiss will change her fate forever.

Ashtine is an orphan taken in by the Dark Blood Brotherhood and trained to be a bounty hunter; he tracks and kills rogue wolves that hunt unsuspecting mortals who dare wander into the forests. This is where he finds Maddie. With one bite, he changes the course of his destiny. With one kiss, the course of his life.
