Blog Tour--The Belgrave Daughter by Zara Hoffman

My Twitter peep Melissa Petreshock introduced me to her beta reader Zara Hoffman, and I'm now pleased to host Zara on her blog tour for THE BELGRAVE DAUGHTER.  She graciously agreed to play my 12 Random Facts game, and I found her answers so interesting! PS. We are total samesie on #9!! Enjoy!!
1) I was adopted from China when I was 18 months old.

2) I have six names: Zara Helena Xiuping Sarah Hannah Hoffman.

3) I have no siblings, but my older cousins have always spoiled me and taken care of me.

4) I used to pretend that I was a witch, and am still disappointed that I'm not. However, I am clairvoyant and clairaudient.

5) My grandma taught me to type and multiply. She is also the reason I became an avid reader and writer.

6) I wrote my first story when I was in 3rd grade. It was a 60-page long mystery based on the Nancy Drew books.

7) I read Speak by Lois Lowry the summer before fifth grade. I couldn't sleep for three months afterward (but I didn't tell anyone).

8) Ironically, four years later, my friends told me not to read The Lovely Bones. Also, when I went to see the movie, my mom got an important call right before the rape scene. Let's say I didn't sleep for a few nights–and they didn't even SHOW the gory details that kept me up with nightmares.

9) I HATE horror or anything scary, but I'm addicted to The Vampire Diaries and now the spin-off series, The Originals. I'm also considering watching the Carrie remake and American Horror Story: Coven, but I'm still afraid to because I'll probably regret that decision.

10) I wrote THE BELGRAVE DAUGHTER in 5 months, but my editor (my mom) keeps giving me new edits to make.

11) When my grandma died, these touch-sensitive lights turn on whenever a family member or a good family friend enters. My mom and I have practically everyone saying hi to her now.

12) My mother, grandma, and I created a perfect 3, and when my grandma died, we got our dog, creating a new 3. Anyway, the point is that I love numerology. 3s, 7s, and other numbers play a large role in my debut novel, THE BELGRAVE DAUGHTER and the rest of THE BELGRAVE LEGACY trilogy.
The Septemgeminus Prophecy states: "A powerful sorceress with blood laced in gold sevenfold shall determine the fate of the world."

Fawn Belgrave's magical powers are the coveted prize in a bet between God and the Devil.

When she meets Caleb, the dark angel assigned to seduce her, Fawn's life is turned upside down.
