Praise for the books:

"There is something special about a book/series when you feel like you've come
home to family/friends in the first chapter. That is how I feel when I begin 
each new book in this series. I find I care more about each character as the series progresses." - Amazon Reviewer

"I have been a huge fan of this series. After the second book I wasn't 
exactly sure how this one would develop. Hands down it is the best 
book of the series so far." - Goodreads Reviewer 

“The Concealing is one of the best books that I have read in a long time…You will
fall head over heels in love with all of the characters and the plot as well in The Concealing.” – The Avid Reader 

“I was glued to the book from the moment I began reading it and was sad 
when it ended, because it ended. I can very easily visualise this book as a 
film, the descriptions are detailed enough to make it a great opportunity for a film. Amazing.” -- Cookie Book Reviews
“A great young adult series along the formulaic values of the “Twilight” series. 
Also a wonderful book for adults who want to immerse themselves in a world 
full of youth and American Indian heritage.” -- Respect the Books

Della Connor (D.E.L. Connor) was born 
in South Dakota and raised in Southeastern

Montana where she acquired a keen appreciation for 
Western and Native American culture. She moved 
to Texas as a young adult and acquired her 

honorary Texan status. She became a registered 
nurse, a nurse practitioner and eventually earned 
her PhD in nursing. She still works as a nurse 
educator and as a nurse practitioner.
Her nights and weekends, however, are filled 
with her stories and books. 
Her first book, Spirit Warriors:The Concealing
was published by Booktrope Publishing in November of 2014. The second 
book in the series Spirit Warriors: The Scarring published on July 21, 2014 and 

Spirit Warriors: The Burning rolled out on September 21, 2015. The Spirit 

Warriors story evolved from a short story she wrote for a college English class 
in the early 1990s. The professor read it, loved it and asked her to stay after 
class and discuss it. During this discussion, he told her that a "dark" story like 
hers, which was written for older children, would be unmarketable and unsaleable. 
The story kept floating around in her mind. Finally, J.K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyers
 and others stepped forward with amazing "dark" stories to create a new genre 
called Young Adult. The time was finally right for her book. She wrote book 1 in 
two weeks. It took another year and a half and about a 150 queries all with a 

"not interested" for her to find a publisher.
