Interview with Author Ivy Devlin

NovelReaction is excited to welcome author Ivy Devlin as part of her blog tour for her YA novel, Low Red Moon. Ivy Devlin is the pseudonym of a popular and critically acclaimed YA author, and with Low Red Moon, she makes her paranormal debut. She lives just outside Washington DC with her husband and dog, owns more books than she can probably read, and would love it if you visited her website, www.ivydevlin.com.
