The epic conclusion of New York Times bestselling book “Promise Me Darkness”
“I’m darkness, Maddie. Stay away from men like me. You’ll only get hurt.”
At one time my life was simple. Easy. But that was before the war. Now I was no longer an average college student. I was a survivor. A woman living in a ravaged world. My future was not bright and my life was far from perfect. The war had taken so much from me… but it wasn’t finished yet. It wanted more.
It wanted my heart. My soul. The one person I couldn’t live without.
It wanted Ryder Delaney. My best friend. The bad boy. The one person who could fight like no other and love me like no one else. I watched him walk away one hot summer day and I prayed he would return. I needed him like I needed air to breathe and water to drink. Without him I was lost. A light without her darkness.
Until he returns, I’ll wait for him. And I believe he will return because love is powerful…
And so is the light calling him home.

What inspired you to write these series?
I have written for most of my life. Numerous unfinished stories take up space on my computer. Promise Me Darkness became like an obsession to me – I had to write it until it was completed.
The inspiration for Promise Me Darkness and Promise Me Light came from multiple ideas. First, I love dystopian novels and read as many as I can. Combine that with my love for romance and I knew I had my inspiration.
I wanted the story to be about two friends secretly in love. I loved the idea of two very different people being inseparable. I wanted the reader to believe that opposites do attract and love does conquer all. But beneath the love aspect, I wanted the story to be about hope, friendship, and survival. I also wanted my characters to be challenged in some sort of situation that was out of their control. I liked the idea of an outside force causing life-threatening scenes, bringing the characters either closer together or tearing them apart. The EMP aspect came about because I have always been fascinated with doomsday scenarios and how the public reacts to them. At the time Promise Me Darkness was taking shape in my mind, I overheard a national news story about the threat, both man-made and natural, of an EMP to the U.S. I thought what if I took my characters and threw them into the middle of an EMP attack on the U.S. That’s how the stories were born.
