Take an average guy, happy with his life. Take away the best part of that life, and watch him spiral into grief and despair. Watch the anger generated by his grief take a right turn and deposit him somewhere – else. Somewhere beyond reality as we know it. So begins this tale of possibilities, where universes unknown to us are fanned out like a deck of cards. David finds a place he did not expect, populated by an entity he can barely understand, to help him deal with something inside of him that can be either his saving grace, or his undoing.

This story is a wild ride of action,emotion, and humor for all of its characters. Creation is examined through the lens of science, without discarding the power of faith or the strength of the human spirit. That sounds really serious, but there’s plenty of humor. People do find humor in everything; it’s one of our best traits. Another is protecting the bonds of family, even when the definition of family changes without notice. David and his family travel a strange and unique road toward a battle that’s as inevitable as it is impossible.

Endless Days (The Firsts Book 2)

Cherise wanted a quiet, normal life…something she had never had. After a traumatic loss, she decided she needed serenity, so she moved halfway across the world to the American states, to a beautiful, quaint village in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. And there, with fresh air, tall trees, and lovely neighbors, she opened a little patisserie, and settled into a wonderful, normal life. Her family had already told her she couldn’t run from her destiny.

Turns out, they were right. The last thing she ever wanted was to see a vampire again. But suddenly, a very damaged one shows up, stripped of his memory, unable to keep human blood down, and in need of help that only someone with her skills could provide. Damn’t! She should have known that something would ruin her perfect quiet life of solitude, gardening, and baking her incredible French pastries. No matter how desperately she wanted to send him away, he needed her. The family legacy couldn’t be denied…she was born to use her empathic skills to help supernaturals bridge the two worlds. Okay, she would help him and send him on his way quickly so that she could get back to her gentle life. Of course, it figured that this vampire was more than an average vampire…he was one of the first bloods, ancient vampires… powerful, rare, arrogant. Cherise had never been attracted to the large, oversexed vampires. So why did her heart race and breath quicken when he came to her for help? Stick with the plan, she told herself, get him well and out of the village. Only it wasn’t going to be that simple when she discovers he’s been the target of horrible torture and abuse. It will take all of her skills to help this man become whole and well again. And maybe more of her than she’s ever had to give before. Maybe she would discover that even an empath doesn’t know what’s in her own heart.

Kings & Queens

Seventeen-year-old Majesty Alistair wants police to look further into her father’s fatal car wreck, hopes the baseball team she manages can reclaim the state crown, aches for Derek…or, no…maybe Alec…maybe. And she mostly wishes to retract the hateful words she said to her dad right before slamming the door in his face, only to never see him again.

All her desires get sidelined, though, when she overhears two fellow students planning a church massacre. She doubts cops will follow up on her tip since they’re sick of her coming around with notions of possible crimes-in-the-works. And it’s not like she cries wolf. Not really. They’d be freaked too, but they’re not the ones suffering from bloody dreams that hint at disaster like some crazy, street guy forecasting the Apocalypse.

So, she does what any habitual winner with zero cred would do…try to I.D. the nutjobs before they act. But, when their agenda turns out to be far bigger than she ever assumed, and even friends start looking suspect, the truth and her actions threaten to haunt her forever, especially since she’s left with blood on her hands, the blood of someone she loves.
