Hi, my name is Amber and I'm 15 years old. I am a huge fan of Anne Lesley Groell's: The Cloak and Dagger series.
The two books in the series are called Anvil of the Sun, and Bridge of Valor. Bridge of Valor is one of my most favorite books ever!
Here's my problem though:
One day I went to the book store to get a few books. I bought four books. One of which was Anvil of the Sun. I couldn't put it down. As soon as I finished it I begged to go to the book store. I got to go to the book store and pick up the sequel, Bridge of Valor. They didn't have a third one, but I just asumed it was out of stock (they didn't have Anvil of the Sun either). I went home and read the book in a day. I then went to the store I bought Anvil of the Sun at. There was no third book, so I had to face facts, that the third book hadn't been published yet. Now, in the back of Anvil of the Sun, there was a preview of Bridge of Valor, and there was a date of it's release. But there was no release date or preview in the back of Bridge of Valor for the next book. This concerned me a tiny bit. I then looked at the release date in the two books. Anvil of the Sun was released in the summer of '96, and Bridge of Valor was released in summer of '97, so doesn't it make sense that the next enstallment would release in summer of '98? I guess that is really not entirely accurate, but it makes sense, doesn't it? Then I got scared. What if Ms. Groell decided not to write anymore books, or the publishers wouldn't publish them, or maybe that that was the whole series (though it seemed like a strange position to stop at). I then thought what if something more tragic happened, like one of Ms. Groell's loved ones got ill, or passed away, so she has posponed writing, or she herself has become ill, or passed away, or she is just having a rough time in her life right now (and I strongly hope than none of these are the case).
It's not just the lack of her books that are making me uneasy, it's the lack information as well. I have been able to find virtually any thing on Ms. Groell or her books on the internet. I often find information on the books I like, and I also correspond with the authors of those books as well. Not finding anything about a great author on the internet makes me curious and uneasy.
That is where I would like you to help. If anyone has any information about Ms. Anne Lesely Groell, her series: The Cloak and Dagger, any of her up-coming novels, or anything else about her what so ever, will you PLEASE contact me?
