Guest Post

Gabrielle Arrowsmith—a true member of the “slash generation”—is a YA novelist, a substitute teacher, an actress, and a soccer trainer. As expected, she loves to read and watch movies, especially during cold Minnesota
winters. She also enjoys music, soccer and other outdoor activities. Above all, Gabrielle cherishes time spent with her friends and growing family, including her cat and turtle!

*Concealed in the Shadows (FREE eBOOK!)

Sydney Harter has long awaited September 12th, 2033—her eighteenth birthday. She can finally apply for guardianship of her sister, who is her only family and entire world. She hopes they will
be lawfully reunited, but is prepared to defy authority and risk everything to escape the captivity of Miles County so that they can be together.

Escaping will be difficult and dangerous. Citizens are bound to their county by sophisticated chip implants that deliver shocks to those who dare to cross the electric barrier. Sydney is very clever,
but her trickery is limited against the all-seeing eyes of technology. Even if they were to survive the escape, disappearing into the forgotten forests and towns of the past seems an impossible task.

What Sydney doesn’t know is that she is the particular interest of two opposing forces. With deceit, fear, and warfare surrounding her—can she trust the party that aims to help with her fight
against the other? Can she open her heart to receive and return unexpected love? When her sister’s life becomes jeopardized, Sydney will have to weigh a new love against the only enduring love she has known. The cost could be deadly…

How will she choose?

 *Released from the Darkness

Two young seeksmen are dead, and Sydney blames herself. The only way to get her sister back from the county’s clutches, while also preventing more death, was to offer her own life in exchange for Evvie’s freedom.She expected a dreadful end, but nothing like the prison in which she wakes. Agonizing county life is redefined in Neo-Necropolis, new city of the dead, which lies beneath the earth. Worse than being allegedly deceased, is the false identity Sydney is forced to assume where Evvie, Sheridan’s captain, and Crewe never existed.

Sydney alone knows the magnitude of the county’s evildoings inside, outside, and now below. At only eighteen, the responsibility to defend freedom falls solely on her tried and tested shoulders—a burden that requires desperate action when a catastrophic revelation upends the world as she knew it.

The people Sydney cares for are more vulnerable than ever. Though she’s buried underground and monitored by county agents, she must escape this new captivity. Maybe it’s time to fight fire with fire. Sydney has proven her courage in facing their weapons, but can she trigger her own?

 *Reduced to Dust

The commander devastated the town of refugees and, to wound Sydney more deeply, seized her family. Crewe promised to help her rescue them, but paralyzing grief over his own loss has made him unreachable. With the other seeksmen feeling equally defeated-and the traitor still among them-Sydney is more alone in this fight than ever, but she will not give up. With relentless determination, she vows to do everything in her power to get
her loved ones back. Sydney’s chances for success are threatened as plans backfire and unforeseen obstacles arise. When her true tie to the commander is revealed, she loses the trust of the few allies she has left. The situation grows even graver when a terrible epidemic advances, and the responsibility to decide who will have a shot at surviving is placed in her uncertain hands. The suffering has to end, and only Sydney has the unique knowledge and connections to bring down the cruel leaders of the oppressive system. The time has come for the battle of her life-one that will claim many. Even if she survives, will her heart endure the choices she will be forced to make?

7 Fun Facts About Me
1 – MY NAME – Gabrielle Arrowsmith is my given name, and no, I’m not related to Steven Tyler. 😉 I bet those with the surname Tyler are asked that question far less frequently than I am.
2 – MY WRITING – As a child, I could often be found writing books, plays, poems, and juicy diary entries (like what I’d learned at school that day). It surprised many to learn I’d completed my first novel, but not my family.
3 – MY READING – As a reader, I like to alternate between, classic, contemporary, and young-adult literature. Some of my favorite authors (in each of the respective categories) are Kurt Vonnegut, Khaled Hosseini, and Suzanne Collins.
4 – MY FAVORITE SPORT – My collegiate soccer team made it to the NCAA National Tournament three years in a row. It was an incredible experience to play on that turf. I still play in my local women’s league and train youth teams.
5 – MY OTHER CREATIVE WORK – At age nine, I was bit by the acting bug. It is another of my slash-generation professions (with teaching being the first). Most of my film and commercial work has been local, but keep your eye out for me on the screen! Concealed in the Shadows film adaptation, anyone?
6 – MY SUPERPOWER – Due to some surgeries, I can blow air out of my ears. You can actually hear a faint whistling! And underwater? Quite a spectacle.
7 – MY BUCKETLIST (a partial list of some crazy/quirky items)
Pet a live, wild deer
  • Serve on a jury
Get stuck in an elevator with a stranger
Spend a night in jail (hopefully due to research or being wrongly accused of something)
  • Be in a studio film that plays in theaters (not out yet, so mum’s the word)
Drive-through at a bank, fast-food restaurant, or car wash (never have done so as the driver)
