Thursday Twitter Takeover: Lauren Trickey

Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account for Thursday’s Twitter Takeover. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week YA author Lauren Trickey will be taking over our Twitter account.

Lauren Trickey was interested in creative pursuits from a young age and was inspired to write her first novel, Jack of all Trades, at the age of thirteen. Apart from writing, she also has a passion for dance and music. Lauren lives in Sydney, Australia, and hopes to also work in the Live Production industry.

Her latest book is called Jack of All Trades. When five girls suddenly find themselves immersed in near-death experiences, they wake up in a hospital, where they are greeted by a mysterious woman, Shadow. She confronts them with a truth: magic is real. It exists in another world, a different dimension. On a planet where magic thrives, where it is a part of daily life, where Elves, Vampires, and Fairies live side by side. Shadow leads them from their ordinary lives into a strange world where they begin training to help her stop a powerful witch planning to terrorize Earth.

But why does Shadow want to teach them? How can they help her stop a powerful Witch? And what about her assistant, Mercury? Neither of them seems trustworthy, but what other choice do they have. Shadow is their only contact with this other world, so they have no choice but to trust her. Or never see the world that is supposed to be their home. In this fantasy tale for teens, seemingly normal girls discover magic and adventure in an alternate reality where Earth is home to magical creatures.
