Usually I like to talk about ghosts and goblins and witches, oh my. Not today. Instead, I want to take a moment to reflect on women. Yeah, you’ve caught me, I’m a die hard feminist. Oh wait, you probably already figured that out considering what I like to write. That and the fact that the… read more.
With the June release of Vermilion Justice I say good-bye (at least for now) to my favorite vampires, Riah, Ivy & Tory. We’ve had a lot of fun together and it’s going to be bittersweet when the book comes out. Then again…the new series is in the hopper and well, let’s just say it’s taking… read more.
Now it probably comes as no surprise that I’m a vampire girl. Have been intrigued with vamps for as long as I can remember. So when The Walking Dead came out, I just didn’t pay too much attention. I mean after all it was a show about zombies. Pffff, zombies! Then came all the buzz… read more.
The summer has gotten away from me in a blaze of speed and flurry of crisis, work, and yes, even a?fair amount?of fun. I don’t know where it went nor did I realize how long? I’ve ignored this blog. My bad… Fall is on the way and my favorite holiday creeping up. Oh yeah, you… read more.
In my book, Souls of Sorrow, the Watcher is a key character. I’ve been fascinated by the Watchers since I discovered them in the Bible’s Book of Enoch.

I’ve always loved vampires…books, movies, TV shows (who didn’t watch the original Dark Shadows!) but it was an Irish writer who took my love of the undead to a new level. Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu’s short story “Carmilla” opened up a new world that ushered in a change in my life. When my mentor professor… read more.
I’ve always had an active imagination. In fact, some might even argue…over-active imagination. Where others see romantic moonlight, I see werewolves. Where others see glowing mist, I see vampires. It’s just the way I roll. Always was. Always will be. Case in point…if you weren’t already aware, I do triathlons and distance running (although distance… read more.
I watched Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter last night. Didn’t really think I’d like it but I did! Surprisingly I liked it a lot. It made me think what it would be like if I lived my normal life and yet found myself in Abe’s shoes. If I was a vampire hunter: I would move with… read more.
