About the author:
Author Shah Wharton hails from the West Midlands area of England and has recently returned home after living in Dubai for the past several years.
Shah's appreciation for literature began at an early age after her father introduced her to the world of poetry. Poe's works kindled a love for the dark and macabre, and today she favours genres with those elements in prominent roles. She has written several horror short stories, assorted poems, and ghostwritten endless erotic romances. Her debut novel, Finding Esta: The Supes Series Book One blends paranormal mystery and urban fantasy, perfectly highlighting her love for the supernatural.
A psychology graduate who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2005, Shah knows the intricacies of mood and human behaviour. She continues to flourish as an author, despite her struggles, and is an advocate for mental health awareness. And while her works are fictional, her characters are written to subtly represent the very real effects of mental illness. These are the kind of people Shah understands and who interest her.
Even though she deals with dark topics, she approaches the subject with positive enthusiasm. She loves learning from other writers and often supports their work online. Her website also offers author services, such as ghostwriting and promotion. Currently, Shah is working on Finding Luna: The Supes Series Book Two, romance shorts for others, and some released under a pseudonym, and several horror shorts.
Shah loves fan mail, live music, great movies and a glass of the red stuff--that's wine, not blood. But everything feels possible while snuggling up to her husband and their mammoth, longhaired German Shepherd, affectionately named after Shah's favourite musician and poet, Bob Dylan.

Finding Esta: The Supes Series Book One
Mrs Shah Wharton
Finding Esta is a paranormal mystery with an urban fantasy twist!
For Luna, each day is not about living and succeeding, but about survival.
Luna has never been popular, in fact, even her parents loath her. She can hardly blame them; her psychic issues do make her a little odd and her only friends -- Flo and Ada- are Shadows who exist inside her troubled mind. Although the normal world is all she's known, it's a place where she's never belonged, nor been understood. For Luna, each day is not about living and succeeding, but about survival. That is, until her work as a journalist leads her to investigate the disappearance of baby Esta, snatched from her home over twenty years earlier. Soon, our psychic heroine stumbles upon a series of revelations in a clandestine realm of vampires, weres, and magical alien-supernaturals. Revelations that make her oddities appear perfectly banal in comparison, and obliterate every preconceived idea of the normal world.
Her hunger for truth drives her forward. Yet, the constant physical changes, the undefined blood in her veins, the heightened power of psychic gifts she's always hated, and an ache to finally belong somewhere, to someone, all force her to make discoveries about herself she could never have imagined.
Ignorance may be bliss, but the truth will set Luna free, if only she can face it.
"Finding Esta is the tumultuous tale of one extraordinary woman's journey of self-discovery within a supernatural underworld."

"Wharton weaves a compelling story that hovers between reality and unreality[...] Parts of Luna's journey reminded me of 'Dark Lover,' the first book in J.R. Ward's shockingly addictive Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Other parts are vaguely reminiscent of other urban fantasy narratives, yet the whole is refreshingly original. It reads like a really good mystery[...] Luna Dukes isn't like any other paranormal heroine I've ever read, and there are some really fun tweaks to the usual paranormal mythology.
