What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. Right?
Saxony Cagney counts herself lucky when she wins a position as an au pair in Venice for the summer. It’s her responsibility to take care of two young boys – speak to them in English, make sure they get to their swimming lessons on time. Piece of cake, right? She unexpectedly forms a strong bond with the youngest, Isaia, although its a mystery why. She also meets two Italian men… both are smart, successful, sexy. So far things are going her way. Who doesn’t like options?
When she discovers that Isaia is actually dying, and his mom is trying to keep it a secret from his dad, things get a violent shove into complicated…and then contagious. She’ll never be the same again. Just when she’s got more on her plate than she can handle, she accidentally gets tangled up with the most powerful crime family in Venice

I’m A.L. Knorr, YA and NA Urban Fantasy (with romantic elements) Author. Why young adult? It’s always been my favourite genre – I still like to read YA myself.
A.L. stands for Abby-Lynn, but I thought it was a bit long to slap on a book cover, so I shortened it to A.L. Unfortunately, it sort of makes it sound like I’m a dude. So, now that you’ve visited this page, you know I’m not a dude. Glad we cleared that up!
The characters that come to me most often are young women… they’re fun to write because they’re complicated and sometimes they do weird stuff. I should know, I was a young woman once.
Why write? I can’t not write. I just don’t feel right when I don’t write. I have more fun inside my head than I do in the real world. I believe that life is storytelling. We learn through storytelling. Whether it’s on stage, screen, page, or just a chat over a coffee with a friend – we learn through the stories we consume and the stories we share. My head has always been full of them and when there are a lot of characters bumping elbows in your brain, well, the only remedy is to get them down on paper and into someone else’s head.
I’m Canadian, but I also live in Italy, which is quite inspiring. When I’m not writing or plotting my next story, I love to mountain bike, hike, do yoga, read, and visit the historic sites of Italy and abroad. I also frequently butcher the beautiful Italian language.
I’ve harboured the dream of writing books for as long as I can remember, and I have always written. When I was young, I would read until late into the night. I even stuffed a towel under the crack in my door to hide the light so my parents wouldn’t know that I wasn’t sleeping (I’m sure they knew anyway… they know everything). Books were (and still are) my favourite escape.
