Author Spotlight: Veronica Tabares

Veronica Tabares lives in Seattle, Washington, and is the author of two MG/YA books in a trilogy called Behold the Eye. She grew up in Memphis, and has had tons of different jobs--from sellng art to teaching middle school.


Behold the Eye: Braumaru
Vickie is bored with the every day activities that occupy her time, and so she sets out to write a book. But not just any book—a thriller. Complete with ghosts, secrets, and mysterious happenings that will make it a bestseller. Her only dilemma? She needs research. Her search for ghosts sets off a chain of events that lead her—and some newfound enemies—to the discovery of an alternate world where Micah lives, and where dreams hold new meaning.

Enchanting, baffling, and mystifying, Tabares' tale is certain to entertain. Though a little confusing and shaky at the very start, that story quickly evens out and begins to draw readers in. Alternating points of view ensure that the books moves along quickly, and poses many questions that add an air of mystery and suspense. Tabares portrays a world that is unique and inviting, and will appeal to the readers' fantasies, making Behold the Eye: Braumaru all the more entertaining and appealing to readers of any age.



Behold the Eye: Cerulea

Vickie has awakened to find herself in a strange world, far from home. Guided by three new friends, she must struggle to find a way back to her own world. But it isn't as easy as she hopes--danger and peril are with her every step of the way, and she'll find herself tested every step of the way.

Continuing where its prequel left off, Behold the Eye: Cerulea contains all of the mystery, excitement, and danger that Braumaru did. Tabares' world of dreams and fantasies is both intriguing and daring, and will excite and thrill readers at the same time. Though the book dragged slightly towards the middle, the many secrets and incessant questions will propel readers through the book, and the great dynamics between the characters is a joy to read. This trilogy is full of love, excitement, and the impossible.
