New Release in Time for Halloween!

 



The Complete Series: Callum of Drakkar Coven, Oleander, Son of Drakkar, and Alexander, Prince of the North.


Callum of Drakkar Coven - How much humanity would one sacrifice in order to survive.

Come nightfall, the inhabitants of the ancient castle perched high on the mountain above their picturesque valley would awaken, and then no one left outside the village walls would be safe.

The torches set into the thick stone walls of the castle would be lit, the evening bells would toll—then Lord Callum would release his riders, led by his brother Oleander, an alabaster, screeching creature of nightmares; thundering through the night as he collected his victims.

After one of Oleander's raids unexpectedly breaches the walls of the village, Laramie finds himself face to face with Lord Callum—a dark, majestic beast like none he has ever seen before.

His first glimpse of Lord Callum sets his heart racing, partially out of fear, but mostly out of fascination—and something else, and Callum takes note of that, pleased to have found his next plaything.

 

Oleander, Son of Drakkar - Unfulfilled …pointless, insignificant—until Oleander.

The unrelenting seduction of Oleander's cool, flawless skin—and deep, captivating eyes. The concern in his voice—the touch of his hand. The exhilaration and pride elicited by the sight of Oleander waiting for him after the visit with his family had left him feeling disappointed and unfulfilled.

Amidst the chaos of his sexual reckoning, Timothy is compelled to uphold an intimate pact struck between himself and Oleander, and chooses to follow him north to Drakkar Castle—the threat of war upon them. Grimmr Coven is advancing deep into Drakkar Coven territory, and only Oleander may know the reason why. He had lived amongst the Coven Grimmr for many decades with his human lover, Torkel, and fears that a far greater threat is coming, forcing Grimmr Coven south into Drakkar Coven territory.

Left behind while Oleander goes in search of answers, Timothy's inner turmoil becomes unbearable. His only company enroute to Drakkar Castle, Alexis, a vivacious, blue-eyed seductress with a secret, intent on stealing him away for reasons that would launch the already fractured family of Drakkar at each other's throats.

 

Alexander, Prince of the North - War has a way of binding unlikely creatures together.

Alexander, Prince of the North, Alex, should have anticipated that his profound love for Oleander would blind him—fuel his desire to protect his forbidden love and his love's human companion—far beyond reason.

His actions send his small group, including Oleander and Timothy, fleeing into the forest, aligning themselves with distant allies and negotiating with Seraphine, Queen of the North.

Grimmr Coven and the Garam Horde are caught in the middle of two enemies bearing down upon one another; Drakkar Coven and the Queen of the North. Something has provoked the queen to march south with her entourage of animated dead, out of her frozen ancestral lands. She has a weapon, in fact two, the taming of which will surely bring about her victory.

The first, she must retrieve, the second walks straight into her hands.

New Release for Christmas!

Christmas Blues


After Ryan lost his wife to cancer, leaving him with three kids to raise on his own, he never thought he'd find any kind of companionship ever again. Especially not with someone like Michael.

The last time Ryan saw his little brother's annoying childhood friend, Michael, he'd been a geeky, pimply-faced thirteen-year-old. That was just before Michael and his family moved to New York.

There was an eight-year age difference between them, and being in college at the time, Ryan had never wanted to waste his breath talking to some immature teenage kid when he could be doing homework or making out with his girlfriend instead.

Sixteen years later, a chance meeting at a coffee shop in Denver changes both of their lives. Michael, recently divorced from his wife, has two kids of his own, and a thriving recording studio.

Michael is no longer the Mikey Ryan remembers.

Getting the whole brood together for a Thanksgiving crafting extravaganza and their mutual love of the blues cements Ryan and Michael's friendship into something neither one of them could have ever expected. Christmas is fast approaching.

How far will their newfound friendship take them?


My Struggle With Shifters

Deciding to add shifters to one's vampire tale wasn't as easy as I assumed it would be. The dilemma in one word... Twilight. One does not want to venture in and end up developing characters that share the same characteristics as such a well-known book.

Aside from my book being ripped to pieces on Goodreads, it's just not a smart practice.

Book II of my Drakkar Coven series Oleander, Son of Drakkar provided me with such a challenge.

For example, my vampires do not glitter in the daylight as Stephenie Meyers' did, and mine are not tidy diners, considering humans to be little more than livestock. So, going to high school amongst them... not going to happen. Unless they were famished and looking for a smorgasbord.

Then there are Twilight's werewolves. I love wolf-shifters and want them in my book, but what characteristics and abilities do I give them without stepping on any proverbial toes?

My initial tactic was to chicken out and introduce a raven while my subconscious ruminated over the wolf issue. Luckily for me, I loved the raven character I created. The intelligent, mischievous personality and habit of stealing shiny objects gives a writer plenty of fun things to work with.

But then I met Alexander, once the love of Oleander's life …and a werewolf. I couldn't deny my overwhelming urge to find out more about this majestic creature. He's a beautiful character. Caring and compassionate, but tortured by the circumstances that will forever keep him and Oleander apart.

I added a twin, his sister Alexis, and created a species of werewolf that roams the woods within fables and stories told by the traveling minstrels. The great white wolves of lore.

Silent, invisible—deadly.

Their snow-white coats blending into the territory they call home. Beyond the most northern vampirical coven. A Prince and Princess as stunning in human form as they are in wolfen. Alabaster skin, crystal blue eyes—exuding sex and seduction.

Silent, alluring—deadly.

These are my wolfen shifters. Like no other werewolf within their roaming grounds, or any surrounding them. They are unique, they are mythical—they are unstoppable.

The third book of the Drakkar Coven series is the tale of "Alexander, Prince of the North" where I shall endeavor to free him from the pain of his devastating heartache.
