When the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted received an urgent message from Siberia, I jumped at the chance to go check it out. Sure I was going to miss my twin daughters with every fiber of my being but I was dying, no pun intended, to get out of Mystic Falls. Even if it was only for a surveillance mission. A romantic interlude was the last thing on my mind when I said goodbye to my family but that’s exactly what I found.
Had I known Klaus Mikaelson was going to be in Russia, I never would have offered to go investigate the string of mysterious deaths. But leave it to me, Caroline Forbes, to find the silver lining. Maybe having an Original vampire on my side could help me solve the mystery and return home that much faster. The only thing standing in my way is my attraction to a man I should never have been attracted to in the first place.
About DJ Shaw
Born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1977, DJ Shaw was 17 before she was able to see most of the United States. When she was 17, she decided to join the fair, traveling with them to Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. Once the fair arrived in Lake Charles, DJ had decided it was time to go home, that she had had enough of traveling with the fair. She much rather preferred to sit around writing, or even telling, the lives of the people who lived in her head. She had been good at story-telling from the time she was about ten, when she scared herself so bad with her story of the Boogey-man that she couldn’t move off her bed. Her siblings would come to her for their scare fix, because they knew she could come up with something on the spot.
Having found what she loved to do at an early age, she continued to write down her stories and any poetry that came into her head. She had stacks upon stacks of notebooks filled with her work. Her love of horror movies made her stories that much more chilling.
When she’s not writing, she’s listening to music, supporting her favorite adopted brother and his band “Traveler in Pain”, playing with her five children, spending time with her husband of seven years or watching horror movies in the middle of the night just for the scare factor.
