As an avid reader of young adult romances, Tonya Ramagos has always dreamed of writing her own teen novels. The road to her writing career began when she was a youngster in Junior High School. Showing their support, Tonya's parents enrolled her in a correspondence course through The Institute of Children's Literature. It was that course that taught her the business of writing for teens and opened the doors for her to reach the publishing industry.
Through the obstacles of life since Junior High, Tonya Ramagos put her writing aside from time to time but always kept her dream in the back of her mind. Finally in 1997 she met her husband Jarett. Thanks to his words of encouragement and support Tonya Ramagos returned to her writing making the vow to never push her dream aside again.
In April 1999 Tonya Ramagos' first book titled The Feud was accepted for publication by Domhan Books and released in June 1999. Since then Tonya has had several other teen books, two short stories, and several adult mystery written under the name of Calley Moore accepted for publication. Please visit her website Romance 4 Teens at www.geocities.com/romance4teens or Calley Moore Mysteries at www.geocities.com/calleymooremysteries for previews and links to her other works.
Tonya Ramagos is a resident of Ocean Springs, MS, where she lives with her husband Jarett and children Korlin and Gavin.

Surprisingly enough, through the course of the week and many conversations Carley learns that Dax and his family are preparing for a move to Somerville, Carley's hometown. Fate had brought them together and distance would not keep them apart.
But Carley already has a boyfriend, which she doesn't tell Dax about. For nearly a year she has been dating Zander Dalton. Carley believed they had the perfect relationship but a few months after they had began dating Zander had been forced to move out of town with his parents. The move was supposed to only be temporary so Carley and Zander had held the relationship together, visiting one another every chance they got.
Now the long distance relationship has begun to take a toll on Carley and then Dax comes into the picture. Carley has every intention of breaking up with Zander when she returns to Somerville but when Zander suddenly appears at the local teen hangout and sees Carley with Dax the situation becomes out of control.
This is a cute, very upbeat little story that inspires good behavior in teens today. I would recommend the story on this alone. Just the kind of story our teens need these days. It's not often you have a Love Triangle and all the characters are good decent young people. Tonya Ramagos aspires to almost fantasy in this Young Adult novel. Kid's Book Reviews
