About the Book
When seventeen year old Odette Sinclair and her family move across the country to be closer to the specialized medical care she needs, she has to give up everything she knew including pursuing her passion for dance. The atrial septal defect she has keeps her isolated and, for the most part, sidelined from life as she attempts to avoid the triggers that cause her problems. As a stranger in a new town, isolated and alone, Odette dreads her monotonous daily routine and struggles to balance what she can’t do with what she wants to do.
Five Stars! “The mystery and the element of suspense were kept alive until the very end and I lived for it! This is a phenomenal first novel and I cannot wait to see what Hannah Boggs has in store for Odette.” – Rabia Tanveer for Readers’ Favorite
About the Author
Hannah Boggs was born in Huntington, West Virginia, lives in South Point, Ohio, and wrote Violent Delights when she was just 16 years old and a sophomore in high school. She has always held a passion for reading and writing and can often be found somewhere reading a book. Her favorite genres are Classic and Gothic Fiction which only serve to increase her love for the paranormal.
For many years, Hannah shared another passion for dance where she excelled in lyrical and ballet, and earned the privilege of dancing en pointe. Her love for the art led her into competition dance where, as a middle school student, she earned a spot on the most advanced senior team that went on to win the dance studios first national championship title in July of 2016.
The following January she collapsed at a solo practice and was never able to recover well enough to dance or compete again. Early on, she was misdiagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (P.O.T.S.), an error that was discovered a few months later when the treatment was not effective. Today, we knows she fights chronic migraine, but most of 2017 was spent trying to find the cause as she fought to return to school, defending her condition to teachers and students alike.
In December of 2017 she received a laptop so she could journal, vent about her situation, and write stories that inspired her. She was also enrolled in an online public school to keep from falling behind and since then she has excelled, successfully completed some A.P. classes, and is on track to complete high school a full semester ahead of schedule. Her experiences and creativity became the foundation of Violent Delights.
Some of her favorite things include Audrey Hepburn movies, Paris, France, cats, the color pink, and anything related to Autumn and Halloween.
