About the Author

 I always knew creative arts were my calling but not in a million years did I think I would become an author. With a background in fashion design I thought I would follow that path. But one day, out of the blue, I had an idea for a book. One page turned into ten pages, ten pages turned into a hundred, and before I knew, my first novel, The Prophecy of Arcadia, was born.

I live in Florida with my husband and baby daughter. I’m currently working on the Arcadian Wars series, the Elements series, and the Love Me, I’m Famous series.

Arcadian Wars is a YA Paranormal/SciFi Romance series. It follows the life of a group of teens who possess incredible powers and have a very important mission: save their planet and in the process, save Earth too. The first book, The Prophecy of Arcadia, and the novella, The Fall of Arcadia, are already available. The second book, The Phoenix Shadow, will be published in the summer of 2015.

Elements is a new YA Paranormal Romance series. It focuses on two sisters who hold the key to stop a full-blown war between elemental beings and humans. Look for the first book by the end of 2015.

Love Me, I’m Famous is a NA Contemporary Romance series and each book will be a standalone focused on different characters. As the name of the series suggests, at least one of the characters in each book will be somewhat famous. The first book is slated to be published later in 2015.

My Review

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Ever wonder what it would be like to love a celebrity and live in their world? Wonder no more! Read M.H. Soars Wonderwall and live a moment in the life of a pop star.

I loved this book! I laughed and even experienced some awesome emotions. This wasn’t your atypical contemporary romance. Yes, there’s a boy and a girl in love. And, yes, there is some turmoil in their lives. But, it was laugh out loud funny! When it wasn’t funny, I was left feeling for Olivia and thinking ‘yes, boys can be stupid’!

My favorite characters were Olivia, Sebastian, and Saylor. First off, Saylor is that book best friend we all need. She’ll honestly tell you what she thinks, how she feels, and what you need to do about your mess. As real as she is, she has her own hidden story (I hear she gets a book!). You know it’s there because she doesn’t go into details about her own life. Other than that, I just love her–mermaid hair and all! I loved Sebastian so much that I wanted to slap the crap out of him. Man, he was the epitome of stupid. Fortunately, he does get a grip on reality again. And, Olivia is the girl we’d all like as a friend. She’s compassionate and cares for her friends deeply. She braves the world on her terms. And, when she hurts it bothers you on a soul level. There’s nothing shallow about her.

As a writer I like symbolism in stories. I loved the Promise bracelet idea in the story. I actually went online and looked for one. What a wonderful idea of making a promise solid. And, it can only be broken with a key. Priceless! 

Soars gave a new twist on the ‘boy meets girl next door’ story by introducing a boy band. The band was like a cross between The Beatles (international popularity) and One Direction (teen girl appeal). Personally, I never thought much about the life of a boy band pop star. After reading Wonderwall, I realized it’s not an easy lifestyle and finding true love could be difficult.

I really loved the international flavor in this story. I’ve never been to London, but Soars provided the right details to allow the reader to know where they were located. But, London (and Camden) were merely settings. They didn’t distract from the story at all.

Above all, Soars delivered another well-written story with well-developed characters. At the end it made me wonder how many teenage relationships actually stand the test of time. Wonderwall isn’t your atypical romance novel. It’s a great story about an enduring love between best friends who happen to be of opposite sex.

An excellent read! I loved how it made me feel happy!
