AUTHOR PROFILE - SHARIE KOHLER ALIAS SOPHIE JORDAN

Sharie Kohler took her adolescent daydreaming one step further and penned her first historical romance in the back of her high school Spanish class. This passion led her to pursue a degree in English and History. A brief stint in law school taught her that case law was not nearly as interesting as literature - teaching English seemed the natural recourse. After several years teaching high school students to love Antigone, Sharie resigned with the birth of her first child and decided it was time to pursue the long-held dream of writing.

In less than three years, her first book, Once Upon A Wedding Night, a 2006 Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Nominee for Best First Historical, hit book shelves. Her second novel, Too Wicked To Tame, released in March 2007 with a bang, landing on the USA Today Bestseller's List.

Sharie Kohler signed with HarperTeen to write a paranormal young adult series. The first book, FIRELIGHT, will release in fall 2010 under her pen name, SOPHIE JORDAN.
 She believes her decision to write paranormal romances stems from her long-sustained love of horror movies (big fan of Alfred Hitchcock!) and a good love story. This USA Today Bestselling author resides in Houston with her family, juggling deadlines, the demanding needs of her children, and a husband who loves her cooking. Amid the happy chaos, she finds time to write.


FIRELIGHT by SOPHIE JORDAN

With her rare ability to breathe fire, Jacinda is special even among the draki—the descendants of dragons who can shift between human and dragon forms. But when Jacinda’s rebelliousness leads her family to flee into the human world, she struggles to adapt, even as her draki spirit fades. The one thing that revives it is Will, whose family hunts her kind. Jacinda can’t resist getting closer to him, even though she knows she’s risking not only her life but the draki’s most closely guarded secret.

RELEASE DATE: 7TH SEPTEMBER 2010
