The Parasol Protectorate series
The Finishing School series

The Silver Star
Why She Deserves More Recognition:
Walls writes from a honest, gritty perspective, some of which stems from her childhood. She allows her audience to come to terms with the fact that life is full of less-than-ideal situations.
Works Include:The Puzzle Ring
The Starkin Crown
Why She Deserves More Recognition: I became familiar with Forsyth through a book tour hosted by Juju from Tales of Whimsy. Not only are her works phenomenal, she is a wonderful, down-to-earth person. I've been dying to get my hands on a copy of The Gypsy Crown, but it has yet to be released in the U.S.
Works Include:Sean Griswold's Head
Why She Deserves More Recognition:Leavitt has a wonderful way of writing whimsical tales that revolve around realistic characters. I highly appreciate this talent in an author.
Works Include:The Nightmare Affair (The Arkwell Academy, #1)
Why She Deserves More Recognition: Let's face it. YA Paranormal Romance has been replicated so much, It teeters on the edge of predictable and boring. Arnett brought life and wonder back into the genre. She is definitely one of my go-to authors.
Works Include:Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs
How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf
