Two Angels and a Half Elf/Half Succubus


It’s been an amazingly productive year for me so far!  Nyalla’s short story, Liberation, released in January, followed by Amber’s novella, Cornucopia,  and short stories in two anthologies (Once Upon a Kiss and Vampires of the Caribbean). Northern Lights released on the 11th of April, and Gabe is coming your way in Far From Center on April 29th.

Angela is hard at work on the audio for Nothern Lights and I’m crossing my fingers that it will be wrapped up and available mid-May.

I’m heading off for a 3 day weekend writing retreat with fellow author Sarra Cannon (of the Shadow Demons Saga fame). I’ll be working on Unholy Pleasures, which is the next Amber novel, as well as playing around with some short novels that may or may not release later this summer.

If you read the novella (Juneau to Kenai) that came with the Northern Lights pre-orders and want more, those short novels will be about the Northern Wolves, and will carry on with the characters you’ve gotten to know in Northern Lights and Juneau to Kenai.

I know you’ve been missing Sam, but hang tight because Queen of the Damned will release in July. In the six to eight weeks, I’ll be getting the pre-order up for that one.

After a nearly 30 year career in corporate America, I am now a full-time writer.  Honestly, I’ve BEEN a full-time writer for four years, but juggling two demanding careers was proving to be impossible and something had to give.  Lucky for you all I chose writing! It was tough to leave not only a career that I’d devoted so much of my life to, but the company that I’ve worked at for the last 19 years. It’s scary, but I feel free to really organize my time around producing my books now.  And for that- I owe each of you a huge THANK YOU! I’d never be where I am but for my devoted, loyal readers.

And lastly, thank you to everyone who reached out to me with condolences on the loss of my mother last month. She was my biggest fan. I don’t know of anyone else who dragged paperback copies of my books to her Scrabble groups and craft clubs, and tried to interest the elderly ladies at church in my Imp Series. If you all knew my family, and especially my mom, you wouldn’t need to wonder where I get my whacked-out sense of humor. I’ll miss her terribly, and regret that I hadn’t been able to publish those cozy mysteries about the widow skip-tracer who starts seeing ghosts as a result of her cataract surgery. I’m sure they would have gone over better with the church and Scrabble crowd than my beloved foul-mouthed imp.

Vampires of the Caribbean

THIS ANTHOLOGY IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

Dead men DO tell tales! Tomorrow (March 15th) is the release of this fun anthology with 10 short stories all about vampires in the (you guessed it) Caribbean. Some stories are sexy, some funny, some light, some dark. I’ve got one in there about Dario when he was a human and first meets the Balaj. Don’t miss this one – especially at the great price of 0.99!
ALSO – I just picked up my buddy Nikki Jefford’s box set of her Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter series book 1-3.  It’s on sale as a set for 0.99 through the 19th. I loved her story about Fane in the Vampires of the Caribbean anthology and am eager to dive into this world.  Even better – it’s set in Alaska just like Rafi’s Northern Lights story.  Great minds obviously think alike!
Grab it now before the sale is over – exclusively on Amazon.

Northern Lights, Liberation, and a Kiss

New releases and soon-to-be releases!

BONUS NOVELLA WITH ALL PRE-ORDERS.
Raphael is an Angel of Order. . . sort of. His affinity for chaos makes him the perfect choice to investigate the trespass in Alaska of supernatural creatures not seen in eons. But the locals in Juneau have been keeping a secret for thousands of years –the disgraceful offspring of an angel and a demon. Raphael should execute her on the spot, or at the very least throw her into Hel with the rest of her kind, but Raphael has never been one to follow the rules.

Lots coming your way!


I’ll start off with Cornucopia which released this month.

Amber has made a deal with the devil.
To protect her incubus boyfriend, Irix, from the angels, Amber has agreed to journey to Hel and assist the humans there with their failing agricultural program. It’s a project the botany major and half-elf/half-succubus would normally love, but the elves are stickers for genetic purity and consider her an abomination. Once in Hel, Amber must avoid the elves who would killer her, steer clear of demons who would love to add her to their collections, and somehow manage to create a Garden of Eden out of an arid desert. Human lives depend on her skills, and Irix’s continued freedom depends on her honoring her contract with Satan

It’s a novella, but I’ve numbered it 3 in the series, because things happen in this book that will come into Unholy Pleasures (book 4), so don’t miss it! You can pick this one up at:

There are a few short stories I’ll be announcing soon – Liberation, which is the tale of Nyalla and Little Red rescuing the kidnapped elves, RumpleIMPskin, a Sam and Gregory short story in the anthology Once Upon a Kiss, and Ship of the Dead, a story about pre-vampire Dario back in Haiti in the anthology Vampires of the Caribbean.


But the big news is Raphael’s book, Northern Lights, which is up for pre-order now and releases April 11, 2017.

Raphael is an Angel of Order. . . sort of. His affinity for chaos makes him the perfect choice to investigate the trespass in Alaska of supernatural creatures not seen in eons. But the locals in Juneau have been keeping a secret for thousands of years –the disgraceful offspring of an angel and a demon. Raphael should execute her on the spot, or at the very least throw her into Hel with the rest of her kind, but Raphael has never been one to follow the rules.
Ahia has lived for thousands of years with the Alaskan natives and werewolves, told that she’s a Nephilim and must stay hidden lest the angels find and kill her. But when interdimensional rifts begin opening up throughout Alaska, swallowing humans and spitting out dangerous monsters, the angels are the only beings who can help.
Of course the angel they send is smoking hot, and demands she assist him in closing the rifts. Far from the stern, enforcer of rules, this angel is fun and flirty, tempting Ahia to drag this project out far longer than she should.
But when one of the rifts takes the local Alpha as well as a group of humans, the situation becomes urgent. Ahia will need to risk everything – her life, her heart, and all she’s believed true to bring them home, because whatever the angels might call her, she won’t abandon those who trust her to keep them safe.

PREORDER THIS BOOK! Everyone who preorders will get an unpublished novella (a paranormal romance) that is a side tale to Northern Lights. No preorder, no free novella. So come on, what have you got to lose? Click one of the below links and do it!

I’m going to get all woo-woo for the new year, so here goes:

Being good at something does not obligate you to do it.

I worked full time while going to college at a computer store. This was back in the 80’s and you couldn’t one-click a MacBook on Amazon or stroll into Best Buy and come out with an HP laptop. Back then computers were sold in pieces that didn’t always play well with each other. “Portables” weighed over twenty pounds and didn’t run on batteries. You even had to buy the damned keyboard and operating system separately. People went to stores, sat down with a sales person to discuss their business needs and budget, plonked down 10k for a system with a text-only monitor and a 10mb hard drive. Then they waited two weeks for all the parts to come in and the tech dudes in the back room to assemble and install everything. It was fun selling computers. I liked meeting interesting people, helping them solve their problems, and making some money doing so. There was no hard close because people were there to buy, I was just telling them which pieces to choose. Continue reading
