Personal Note

website5I’m a big nerd at heart. I love fantasy and science fiction movies such as Indiana Jones, The Neverending Story, Star Wars, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, The Crow, The Lost Boys, etc… I’m addicted to shows like The Walking Dead, Sleepy Hollow, and Game of Thrones! I have to listen to music constantly. Some of my favorite artists are Tori Amos, Amanda Palmer, Radiohead, Kidneythieves, Green Day, White Stripes, Switchblade Symphony, Concrete BlondeJane’s Addiction and The Doors. I’ve collected all The Sandman graphic novels and still read them once in a while. My favorite video games to play is any old Atari game I can pull up on my computer. My number one game crush is Ms. Pac-Man!

And don’t get me started on books! Just to name a few titles I’ve read: Djinn on the Rocks by Dante Elgin, The French Mistress: A Novel of the Duchess of Portsmouth and King Charles II by Scott, Susan HollowayGeek Love by Dunn KatherineNeverwhere by Neil Gaiman, Gallows Thief, by Cornwell Bernard, Most of the Odd Thomas series, by Dean Koontz, Heart-Shaped Box, by Dean Koontz, Heart-Shaped Box, by Joe Hill, and currently reading Black Feathers series by Joseph D’ Lacey.

I worked as a film projectionist for nine years until everything went digital. The solitude of working as a projectionist provided the perfect refuge for writing. The Warning, Cherished Thief, and Atlantic Pyramid were all written in a projection booth.

I have two spoiled cats, October and Poe.

Rain was an average farm girl, until one day a magical fox named Sage appears, asking for help. When a spell goes horribly wrong and becomes a hex, Sage is sent by a powerful sorceress to hunt it down. Rain must read a special spell code in order to pull the hex back to the sorceress’s island…a land nearly destroyed when the hex awakened the Sleeping Volcano within.
Sage leads Rain to the Town of Caves, which is left strangely vacant. They soon learn that the hex has taken the townspeople to a château and placed them under a magical trance where they’re forced to dance endlessly for its entertainment. It is now up to Rain to find and read the spell code that will free the townspeople and send the hex away.
Join Rain and Sage in part one of their adventure!

Cherished Thief

21 First Chapter

Cherished Thief is available at Amazon.com & Smashwords

In a time when outlaws were revered as heroes, Claude Du Vall thrived as a true gentleman of the road. Born into poverty in Domfront France in 1643, Du Vall grew up in harsh times and at the tender age of fourteen his neglectful parents sent him out alone into the world to make his mark. To his good fortune, Du Vall fell into the care of English Royalist exiles who became his benefactors and taught him valuable skills whilst preparing him for employment as a footman.
When King Charles II regained his rightful place on the throne, Du Vall crossed the English Channel and found a new and profitable life as a highwayman. Later he became the most infamous outlaw in British history. During his wild escapades, men hunted him and women adored him. Despite being loved by the masses, Du Vall never escaped being haunted with the inevitability of where his chosen path would lead him.
This brigand remained elusive for nearly a decade until falling into a trap at the Hole-in-the-Wall Tavern on Christmas Day, 1669. Yet, even in chains, his life story was nothing short of remarkable. Claude Du Vall drank life in while embedding his name in the book of legends, forever roaming the King’s Highway by the light of the moon.

Atlantic Pyramid

 

 “This book had a very interesting perspective of what might happen to all the planes and ships that go missing in the Bermuda Triangle. We all would think that those aboard the vessels are gone, but maybe it’s the beginning of a new type of life.”

The Warning

“Wow, the best of two worlds,a good sci-fi story and great mystery all rolled onto one. The author has woven a superb tale of murder, double-cross, conspiracy, and betrayal. The characters are first rate, and the plot is intricate enough without being over the top. Very nicely done.”

The longest night in Nikolai Crowe’s life begins when he’s framed for murdering his ex-girlfriend, Jade Sho. To save himself and clear his name he must search for the reason behind Jade’s assassination. He’ll have to do so without getting caught by crooked cops, who would rather see him dead than captured.
Detective Lucas Knox, assigned to hunt down the fugitive, turns his investigation in another direction when he has suspicions about Crowe’s guilt. His hunch will take him on a long, twisted road that’ll put his own life at risk.
What will Nikolai and Knox discover and can it bring them to Jade’s true killer?
Luckily, Nikolai has help from a human clone identified as Alpha Replica 3007. This clone—and a band of others like him—have escaped their creator on Mill Rock Island. Now this particular clone is guiding Nikolai toward something Jade left for him before her death. What did Jade hide and will Nikolai find it before the cops find him?
