Beautiful Whisper! You’ll find it as an eBook on Amazon under her maiden name of
Tanya Jones and the paperback edition is available through Amazon or locally at the

Tanya is currently one the FSD Tech Facilitators and services the five, west-end schools
for their hands-on technology needs. However, Tanya is also an FSD Alumni having
graduated from the Foothills Composite High School in 1992. Tanya was also one of the
founding cast members of the original MainStage production of Grease in 1990, playing
the second female lead of Rizzo.

Tanya has been an active member of the Foothills School Division since grade 3, often
participating in extra-curricular activities outside of school hours in the fine-arts such as
band and drama, she was also a member of the Peer Counseling program that was
initiated at the Foothills Composite High School during her senior years. As an adult,
Tanya moved back to the area so that her own kids could obtain their schooling through
the Foothills School Division. She has also been a big supporter of the Foothills School
Division by providing continual, ongoing coverage of many of our schools in her
publication the Gateway Gazette for the last 11 years.

We are both proud and excited for Tanya as she embarks on this incredible journey.
Please keep reading for information on Tanya’s debut novel Dreams of Beautiful
Whisper, which is book 1 of The Elves of Eytherfel series with book 2 expected in
February 2016. We hope you will join us in congratulating, supporting and honouring
Tanya for this exciting accomplishment!

Dreams of Beautiful Whisper is a YA Fantasy, that is also a less common, Reality Fiction
Fantasy Crossover, with all the fun and wonder of elves, magic and romance, combined
with the very real challenges that our teens face every day.

Why should readers buy this book?

Tanyas BookDreams of Beautiful Whisper helps teens (and adults) who want to open their minds to
multiple perspectives. It’s unique advantage is that it provides the general escapism that
many of us desire while also providing an obvious, yet not in your face, look at better
role models and problem solving skills.

When Amanda learns that the gorgeous beauty-boy of her disturbingly life-like dreams is
in fact an elven warrior from her past, things get complicated. But shortly after being
urgently moved back to the village where she was born, well things just got weird. As the
haze of her blocked past lifts, the truth of who she is, what she must endure and how it
will change her peaceful human life forever, threaten to be more than she can handle.
Even with her practical approach to challenges, the reassurance of her boyfriend Jordan
and the encouraging support of an entire elven kingdom, will Amanda have the strength
and skill to fulfill her destiny?
