Three Wishes Pre-release

THREE WISHES

Dar helped his foster sister become the ruler of Hel, and helped her free the enslaved humans from the elves. It’s about time he helped himself – to a fun week of mayhem in the Windy City. Collapsing a few buildings and corrupting politicians is an ideal vacation for a demon in Chicago, but Dar didn’t count on a beautiful angel sabotaging his fun and putting him to work.
Asta is an angelic enforcer, scanning for demons in her assigned territory and sending them to an early grave. Unfortunately, the latest trespasser from Hel has diplomatic immunity – but immunity doesn’t mean she can’t coerce him into helping her track and dispatch the powerful demon that’s been cycling in and out of her radar for the last few days.
Demons are the sworn enemies of every angel, but Asta must learn to trust Dar or the dark presence that is growing in Chicago will spread – and this particular enemy has the skills and knowledge to send human civilization back to the dark ages.
She has one week left as an enforcer before she returns to her heavenly home – one week to catch an elusive monster, and one week to safeguard her heart from the demon who is determined to seduce her to sin.

YES! Three Wishes is off to the editor. It’s also available on Amazon for pre-release order, so make sure you’re signed up.  In the meantime, here’s a brief excerpt to get you all excited for the big day: Continue reading

Cat Adopts Writer

We never had cats growing up.  My sole experience with cats (beyond those of my friends) is the two barn cats – Fluffy and Baby Kitty.  I never considered myself a ‘cat person’. But I now have a cat in the house.  Meet Cupid.

photo (14)On December 6th, St. Nicholas Day, I was leaving the farm and saw an animal smack in the middle of the road near Rt. 26.  A cat was standing over it, and for a second I thought it was rabbit road kill. It wasn’t – it was another cat, its body soaked in the freezing rain, and lying in it’s own excrement.  The upright cat took off as I got out of my car, and I saw the one on the ground raise his head.

Great.  I’d stopped thinking I was going to move the body of someone’s pet respectfully to the side of the road, and now I was going to have to face the gruesome scene and make a decision.   Continue reading

Twas the Night Before. . .

treeIf the temperature dropped about twenty degrees we’d be having a white Christmas here in Maryland – a very, very white Christmas.  Instead I’m staring out the window of my office wondering if I have enough spare lumber to build an ark.

It doesn’t matter because I’ve got three kids – an oddly enthusiastic 17 year old, an 8 year old who probably doesn’t believe in Santa but loves pretend too much to give it up, and an almost-6 year old who can’t wait for the bearded guy to come down the chimney – or in the case of the farm house, through the front door.  He discovered last year that the old chimneys were boarded up, so we had to improvise on the folktale a bit.

An 80’s Punk Romance

I was lurking on Kboards one day, and stumbled across an author asking for a cover critique.  It was a nice, romance-type cover, and the name of the book Ache sounded like this would be an erotic romance.

But the synopsis the author gave made me head straight over to Amazon and load books one and two onto my Kindle. I graduated high school in 1983.  Although I only flirted on the fringes of the punk scene, I couldn’t resist a romance steeped in images from my youth. The fact that the main character is 18 (I’m not a huge fan of YA novels) didn’t dissuade me.  Continue reading
