WEFOUNDSwitched: The Trylle Trilogy, Book 1


Wendy Everly knew she was different the day her mother tried to kill her and accused her of having been switched at birth. Although certain she's not the monster her mother claimed she is, she does feel that she doesn't quite fit in.

She's bored and frustrated by her small-town life - and then there's the secret she can't tell anyone. Her mysterious ability - she can influence people's decisions, without knowing how, or why . .

When the intense and darkly handsome newcomer Finn suddenly turns up at her bedroom window one night, her world is turned upside down. He holds the key to her past, the answers to her strange powers and is the doorway to a place she never imagined could exist: Förening, the home of the Trylle.

Amanda Hocking is the current top selling author of the Tylle trilogy series, which has hit America and the world with a bang. She publishes the novels by herself, which makes her very unique due to the fact that she sells a lot of copies of her books. Hocking was born in 1984, and she specializes in the paranormal young adult, fictional romance books.

She has been writing ever since she was a young girl. She used to tell stories, then develop them, and write them down. When she was still young, she wasn’t able to be fast enough in writing. For this matter, she would develop the stories by reciting them to people. She officially began writing at the age of 12, but she still proceeded with other careers, which kept her busy. She wrote close to 50 short stories when she was in high school. The short stories inspired her to start writing novels, and surprisingly, she also wrote a complete script for a movie when she was in high school. However, she didn’t pay attention to it for quite some years.

At the age of 17, she completed her first novel, when she had already graduated. The novel talked about a guy, who had amnesia, and he was in a unethical institution. The guy was in search of a serial killer, but the book didn’t find interested publishers, due to its cliché. Nevertheless, her mom always read the book, and still consider it to be one of her favorites.
