I’m super excited to welcome Bree Despain as my guest this weekend on the YA Scavenger Hunt.
I’m part of TEAM BLUE, one of 8 teams, each with its own prize of 20 autographed books and more, so be sure to check them all out! Here’s just Team Blue’s Prize Pack…
And there are 7 other hunts of equal size!!
The hunt runs from April 2nd through April 5th, beginning and ending at noon Pacific time. To connect to other teams, and find out more information, go to the YA SCAVENGER HUNT page.
And now, back to my special guest…
Bree Despain is the author of the Dark Divine trilogy and the Into The Dark trilogy. She rediscovered her childhood love for creating stories when she took a semester off college to write and direct plays for at-risk, inner-city teens from Philadelphia and New York. She currently lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband, two young sons, and her beloved TiVo.
Bree created a fun video, exclusive to #YASH, for this stop. She says, “My INTO THE DARK series is based on two of my favorite Greek myths: Persephone & Hades, and Orpheus & Eurydice. Both are stories about people who ventured into the dark (or the unknown) for the sake of love. Most people are more familiar with the Persephone myth than they are with the story of Orpheus and Eurydice so I decided to to make a little 4 minute movie version of the myth for anyone who might want a little refresher course on this tragic tale. The movie was written and directed by my 12 year old son and stars the members of my family–including me and all my messy hair + no makeup glory. Enjoy!”
