The Tiger Princess (Book 1)
Ten years ago, a devastating fire took the lives of Queen Karenisha and King Makero, leaving a young Princess Saderia orphaned.
Nobody knows how the fire started, but it ignited quickly. Too quickly.
In ten years, the truth has never been discovered…
Saderia is a curious 10-year-old tiger Princess. Her Aunt Cia and Uncle Jash have taken over the duties of Queen and King and have raised Saderia since her parents disappeared in a mysterious fire. Saderia’s aunt and uncle don’t understand the sassy, adventurous tiger, which she resents.
At night, though, Saderia is haunted by dark nightmares about the fire – eerie, cryptic dreams that push her to start investigating her parents’ disappearance. As she uncovers strange clues, she soon becomes desperate to know the truth. Could her parents have been murdered? On a quest to uncover the truth about her parents’ disappearance, she soon realizes her forest has many other mysteries when she discovers a dangerous, ancient royal secret regarding her oldest ancestors – a secret that will change not only her life, but the lives of everyone around her.
Saderia doesn’t know who or what to trust, but she is desperate to uncover the secrets of the past. She will do whatever it takes to find the truth.

“His parents are gone. He lives in the woods…”
Dash is a dark lion with a dark secret. Living as an orphan in the cold, winter forest, he strives to hide that secret from the other young animals that have come to resent him. But when he meets the animal that has haunted his past, he isn’t sure what to do.
Meanwhile, Saderia finally gets her wish to go to school. She hopes to meet a friend, but she gets slightly more than she bargained for when she meets a fun-loving cheetah, a bullying panther, three prissy girls, prejudiced teachers, and a strange assistant principal who seems to enjoy making Saderia’s life more difficult. But there is no one as strange as the dark lion that sits in the back, and hides his face from her.
Saderia starts having Dreams again, but even though she knows what they are, she still doesn’t understand them. At the same time, she struggles to accept the prophecy she learned about in her ancestor’s tomb. But why do her Dreams and her instinct always direct her toward the dark lion who seems to fear her?
As the two animals get to know each other, Saderia wonders if Dash is hiding something, while Dash realizes that it is much harder to keep secrets from friends.

Classic Children’s Books
When did you first get bit by the writing bug?
Probably before I was even born! I have loved telling stories for as long as I can remember. When I was really young, I used to just love scribbling out stories on a piece of paper. As I got older, I started writing more complex stories – but even then, they were just short stories about my cats! When I was 12, though, I started getting serious about writing and decided I wanted to be an author. That was when I wrote the final draft of my first book, The Tiger Princess, a 300+ page fantasy novel about a curious tiger Princess named Saderia, which I later went on to publish at the age of 13.
Interview at The Children’s and Teen’s Book Connection
Does your book have an underlying message that readers should know about?
When I wrote the book and the other books in the series, I didn’t write it specifically to outline a message. I wrote it mainly as a story that would entertain me and other children. However, there are many messages woven into the story that readers can take away from it. In fact, a young fan actually contacted me once to tell me that my books helped her learn to forgive and say sorry after a fight. I was totally ecstatic that my books could help someone! But in addition to that message,The Tiger Princess and the other books in the Saderia Series also include a few other messages such as these:
1. To always be yourself,
2. To never stop believing in yourself,
3. To follow your dreams (sometimes quite literally in Saderia’s case!),
4. The closeness and power of family and friendships,
5. To never give up even in the face of danger.
Interview at Pump Up Your Book
I found myself liking this book better then the first. I found my stride. Still a fan of Saderia. She is growing up. Most of the new friends that Saderia met at school I liked. Of course the mean girls and Saderia’s teacher I did not care for. It just goes to show you that even a princess has to deal with bullies at school. Dash was a nice addition to this series. Hope to see more of him.

DASH is a really cute book for the younger generation to read! Well, even I enjoyed it, so its really an enjoyable book for anyone to read!
