Adventure number three in the Clockwork Siren Series, Surfaced by Katie Hayoz takes us from the muddy Chicago River to the fading tents of a steampunk traveling circus to the deepest pools of fear about exposing oneself.
Katie grew up in Racine, Wisconsin where she acquired an irreversible nasal twang and an addiction for books with a slightly dark edge. She now lives in Geneva, Switzerland with her husband, two daughters, and two fuzzy cats. She has been an avid reader of YA fiction for years. While she has a penchant for the paranormal, she devours a range of books -- along with popcorn and black licorice. She consumes all three in large quantities. Luckily, the books don't stay on her hips.
