Coming Soon

Death has a way of finding Luna. Orphaned at sixteen, living with an aunt she never knew existed, her life has taken a strange turn. New town, new school, unfamiliar people. Strange events have been occurring. Everyone steers clear of her. Everyone that is but one fellow student. What is his interest in her? The answers come on one fateful night when everything changes. With witches and vampires each having a stake in what Luna decides, the stakes are high. Which side will she choose?

Sudden Shock (The Elleanor Stone Collection)

High up, on the seventh floor of that same building, the inside of a corner apartment appeared inky black.

Autumn Storm

Sudden Shock Startled awake, ripped from a nightmare he thought he had put to rest long ago, the day greeted him in semi-darkness.

Venture

Venture (Book Two of The Crystal Series)

Venture (Book Two of The Crystal Series) The mournful hoot of an owl sounded from somewhere in the distance. Inside the darkened bedroom, all was still. Silence permeated the air. The ivory laced curtains, every now and then, fluttered, as a calm breeze wafted in from the half-open window. The curtain’s slight movement lengthened and… Continue reading Venture (Book Two of The Crystal Series)

Harmony

Harmony (Book Three of The Crystal Series)

Harmony (Book Three of The Crystal Series) Rhea, mother of all gods, defender of the earth, watched, listened and plotted.
