Weston has a heart for reaching teens, and though her original audience for A Prophecy Forgotten was the adult reader, she found that her book resonated with younger readers as well who were excited by the fantasy world she created with undertones of good versus evil. "I’ve written since I was small, and it has been very gratifying that I am able to reach the younger readers. Through these workshops I’m able to give some guidance to our next generation of writers " says Weston.

Weston currently speaks to middle school and high school students about writing and leads the Young Writer’s of Naples – a chapter of the Florida Writers’ Association for teenage authors.

A Prophecy Forgotten is the first in The Elysian Chronicles trilogy. It’s a Tolkien-meets-Clancy fantasy novel about guardian angel warfare and treason that embodies the themes of faith, hope and living according to your purpose through this fantasy fiction story. Her next book, Out of the Shadows: Book II of the Elysian Chronicles, will be available in 2008.

A Prophecy Forgotten (ISBN-10: I-59507-I69-5; ISBN-13: 978-159507-169-9), by ArcheBooks Publishing (www.archebooks.com), is available now.
