Izzy Clarke Releases First Book in New Series for Young Readers: Casted

While Izzy Clarke had a mostly normal summer in 2014, hanging out by the pool with friends and playing sports, she also spent a good chunk of her summer off the beaten path. Izzy ran a successful Kickstarter campaign and then wrote a 25,000 word book. The result is the book Casted, which went live on Kindle today.

Casted depicts the adventures of a teenager, Emma, who believes for most of her life that her parents are dead. After an unexpected attack, where she views magic for the first time, Emma wakes up in the hospital to find that her parents are alive. She also discovers that she comes from a long line of Runecasters, powerful individuals who can control their environment and unlock the power held within nature.

“I wanted to create an exciting book for people my age,” said Izzy Clarke, author of Casted. “My hope is that the characters resonate with people in middle school and high school. In my main character Emma and each of her friends, I tried to represent a little bit of myself and my friends.”

Casted is just the first book in the series. Izzy plans to work on a new book this summer and then release a new book each year.
