VAMPIRE/GHOST HORROR

THE SINNERS & SAINTS SERIES


“The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.” ~Oscar Wilde

Alice’s life is spiraling out of control. After an accident leads to a tainted blood transfusion, Alice descends into the supernatural world of vampires, addicted to blood, destined to sin. Only, that’s her second largest problem. The first might kill her for real.

With no sire or formal keeper, Alice is among the feral vampires, marked by white eyes and the ability to live without drinking blood, unless the cravings prevail. Caught between two rivals, Alice doesn’t know what she wants to be, a sinner or a saint. Wolf, an enigmatic firecracker, has the power to make Alice embrace her troubles as strengths, no matter if she is wicked or kind. But Gesick cools Alice’s anxiety, accepting the paranormal activity surrounding her presence.

Will Alice choose Wolf, a woman with little standing in her way, or Gesick, a man who knows a little something about temptation?

~New Adult/Mature YA 16+ due to gore, language, and adult situations.

 

PARANORMAL FICTION

THE ELL CLYNE SERIES


BOOK ONE

“SOULED OUT is a dark tale of betrayal at the deepest level.” ~The Reading Cafe 

“Souled Out is a page-turner and a quick, entertaining read.” ~Cellardoorians  

Ell Clyne is just a normal girl living in a small town. Except, she can read your future through your soul, she works for the daylight-impaired, and she told one hell of a lie to get the job… So ‘normal’ was basically thrown out the window a long time ago.

When Ell’s lie is discovered, the vampires want answers, even if it kills her. In a world of enemies -and one particularly vexing coworker- Ell must discover who sold her out and why before she permanently loses her soul, her life, and her family forever.

Because liars pay in blood.

BOOK TWO

Ell Clyne is back. She’s still soulless and her life is as messy as ever. (That’s a double damn it.)

Ell’s extremely sexy coworker, Gabriel, is searching for his brother. Living up to her promise, Ell sets out to find the troublesome vampire, embroiling herself in a twisted scavenger hunt. Falling square in the lap of the most fearsome monster of all should have Ell running in the opposite direction, but devilish antics are the least of her problems.

As Gabriel’s family sins unravel, Ell is forced to come to terms with her status as the Cypher -a karmic rat who “reads” souls and spills their secrets to the vampires- as well as her feelings for the undead men in her life.

It might be easier to walk away from her life completely.

POST-APOCALYPTIC ROMANCE

THE HOPE & DARKNESS SERIES


UPON US

What if the apocalypse was manufactured to save mankind?

Threatened by an ailing planet and insatiable human advancement, world governments agreed to ban the modern way of life, cutting off electricity, technology, and medical services, dismantling the global economy for one hundred years.

Twenty-five years have passed in this self-imposed darkness known as the New Beginning. Crops are dying and the sickness -a zombie-like plague of rotting flesh and fractured minds- is ravishing the East Coast of the United States.

One woman has been entrusted by the clans to remedy their food shortage. Breaking the rules is nothing new, but She -a nameless nomad- must abduct a privileged villager named Ren, bringing her too close for comfort with his entitled world. Together, they discover the root of the plague as their desire for one another grows, even as the differences in their two worlds collide.

Through deception and the horrors of an expanding pandemic, love thrives where a world chose to die.

LITERARY FICTION


HISTORICAL FICTION

“A strong novel from the busy brain of a born storyteller – Southern Fiction at its truest.”  ~Jenniey Tallman, author of We Are Persistence Runners

Nora Cravis, a quirky and curious young woman, experiences life in Granville County, North Carolina, with her family. Unable to conform to the expectations of an early twentieth century woman, Nora struggles to maintain a meaningful relationship with her parents after her younger sister, Shailene, disappears. While trying to reconcile the devastation of her loss and care for an ailing husband, clues soon emerge, leading Nora down a murky path of family secrets to a lover’s betrayal.

Had you asked me before I married Rathe, before she left us, what the world was like, I would have said God shaped the moon in the likeness of Shailene’s full cheeks. I would have been careless not to mention the delicate touch of her fingers on the material she so often sewed with Momma in the glorious light of the front window. How her giggle pulled a shadow of a smile from our daddy when I said something terrible under my breath.

Shailene and I spent our nights counting stars, wishing on the ones we thought went most overlooked. And when the world flipped inside out, it stole Shailene and all the stars, leaving me in a frightful darkness. I became a different person without a moon for balance. 

I became a different person when the truth found me.
