Destiny is pre-determined. It is strictly monitored. It is unchangeable. Or is it? Madden’s life is a whirlwind of privilege and perks. Born into the elite Purple ring, she is fated to be a Minister of the Seven. Although her position comes with the burden of great responsibility, she’s nothing if not confident in her future. After all, Destiny Specialists have determined how she will fulfill her life's purpose, and they are never wrong. Her classmate Dax, an Ash, is clinging to the opposite end of the spectrum. While everyone around her knows what destiny awaits them, Dax’s fate is…missing. Isolated and ignored, she refuses to let her lack of status define her. After a stunning twist of fate, Dax and Madden’s paths intertwine in ways neither could have possibly imagined. The two are forced to question their own past, present and future as they realize who they are is not necessarily who they were meant to be. ASH, the first book in the Destined series, is an unforgettable journey into an alternate future which will leave readers wondering just how much we can control our own fate. Destiny is calling. Will you fight for yours?

Hi there. I'm Darci.
I'm a creative director with a strong background in both art direction and writing in the digital, print and social space. My interest has always been in strategic brand storytelling. Whether that's found me connecting small businesses with American Express' Small Business Saturday, or sending consumers on a digital scavenger hunt to find a particular pack of M&M's, I make sure the projects I create are engaging, unique, and as memorable as the brands they represent. I also delight in inspiring the teams I work with to make the best work possible.
