Emboldened by the return of Lord Voldemort, the Death Eaters are wreaking havoc in both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that new dangers may lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. He needs Harry to help him uncover a vital key to unlocking Voldemort's defenses, critical information known only to Hogwarts' former Potions Professor, Horace Slughorn. With that in mind, Dumbledore manipulates his old colleague into returning to his previous post with promises of more money, a bigger office, and the chance to teach the famous Harry Potter.
Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry's long friendship with Ginny Weasley is growing into something deeper, but standing in the way is Ginny's boyfriend, Dean Thomas, not to mention her big brother Ron. But Ron's got romantic entanglements of his own to worry about, with Lavender Brown lavishing her affections on him, leaving Hermione simmering with jealousy yet determined not to show her feelings. And then a box of love potion-laced chocolates ends up in the wrong hands and changes everything. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof with far more important matters on his mind. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.

Job Title: Comic Book Artist (Freelance Illustrator)
Where: Dallas Metroplex, TX
Education: BAS in film production and design at the University of North Texas
Someone asked me once,” If you like to draw, why do you have a film degree?” I answered, “ I don’t know.” It wasn’t till recently that I was able to answer that. I’ve always loved movies (action/ sci-fi/ fantasy). And, equally, I’ve always loved Comics. I found growing up that I enjoyed good stories, strange stories that captured my imagination and took me away from everything. Then I became a teen. Emotionally then, I felt I was too good for child’s things. Little did I know?( I was missing out on all the good writings of the 90’s.) As I got older and left for college, my interest sparked again in Comics and would you know, I loved them again! But at this point I was into film. What do I do? I used my knowledge of editing film and shooting to gain perspective in my art pages. In the end it has worked out so far. Currently I am working on my first graphic novel I hope to have published within the next year. And having a film background has given me chances to storyboard local commercials and music videos. I’m still young in the industry, but I’m hopeful!
