Some stories aren’t new. In fact, some stories have been around for centuries. But then, along comes an author who makes it new and fresh, with a personal touch. That’s exactly the story behind our guest author today, Breeana Shields, who has just successfully published her first book, a fictional story based on a very old tale from India about Visha Kanya or “a Poison Maiden.” Breeana’s book is entitled Poison’s Kiss. The sequel, Poison’s Cage, comes out in 2018. Shields graduated from Brigham Young University with a BA in English. When she’s not reading or writing, she loves traveling, eating good food–especially if it’s pasta or chocolate–and spending time with her husband, her three children and an extremely spoiled miniature poodle.
