My passionate world of writing got started about five years ago. After having writer’s block for many years, I made the best decision of my life. I decided to have fun. I wouldn’t try to write something “important.” I would write a story that I could simply enjoy while I wrote it. The very day I made that decision, everything in my writing world shifted. A story started writing itself. Within a little more than a year, I had completed six books in a series called The Vampire Reclamation Project. The story continues to write itself as its characters learn more ways to find what’s been lost, just as I found my “lost” passion writing about them. I’ve also been inspired to write other books, including In The Care of Wolves, Vampires Suck But You Don’t Have To, and my newest, a children’s book called Hurly Burly The Squirrel Next Door. So my wish for everyone is that they find the ease and joy I have in my life by letting go of what doesn’t work and embracing the things that bring them joy.
We live in a needy-feedy world! Yet, we’re so conditioned to accept the neediness in ourselves and others, we don’t notice it. But it’s there. It’s always there. So are the vampires. So is the craving in each of us. Now it’s time to reclaim ourselves. It’s time to wake up every morning with a smile. It’s time for life to be fun again! “Vampires Suck But You Don’t Have To” will show you how!
The first book in my series, THE VAMPIRE RECLAMATION PROJECT, is now available in print or as an eBook . Over the next two years, my publisher, Renata Press, will present the other, now completed, six books in the series. They will offer each tantalizing book as a new delight for your reading pleasure. With this vampire series, the feasting will continue indefinitely.
The first book in my second series, In The Care of Wolves, is also available in print or as an eBook. It’s a paranormal fantasy and my first action/thriller novel. It’s about a sixteen-year-old boy, Theodore, who was kidnapped at birth. Now, he has no idea that he could be a secret weapon, programmed to destroy his real family. When he’s reunited with them, he learns that they are a special group of individuals. In fact, they’re werewolves who are being hunted to extinction. When he joins them in their flight from their attackers, Theodore learns the meaning of loyalty and devotion to family. But in the end, will he unwittingly betray them?
I am delighted to introduce one of my favorite scamps, a squirrel named Hurley Burly. He has the lead in my new children’s book called, Hurly Burly, the Squirrel Next Door. Hurly is adorable, but what kind of house guest would he make? You’ll find out in this humorous book for children of all ages.
