There’s no looking back when you’re on the run.

As America tries to forget the horrors of the Great War by embracing jazz, flappers, and the speakeasy, the Watchers remain vigilant by protecting the innocent and maintaining order among the Immortals—including a powerful line of Seers who are all but extinct. But the real horror is just beginning.

When George Yates is ordered to escort the beautiful Rosemond Le Clair to safety, he finds himself in the middle of an ancient feud that demands her blood. Without the Watchers’ help, he must struggle to protect the last remaining daughter of the Le Clair family from these dark powers, even as he defies fate itself.

Allure can be read as a stand-alone single or as part of the series (it can be read at any point).

My Recommended Reading Order:
The Unintended (Book 1)
The Nexus (Book 2)
>>> Allure (The Prequel)
The Sacrifice (Book 3)
The Fallen Part 1 (Book 4)
The Fallen Part 2 (Book 5)

Free for the First Time–Today Only

If you have been curious about my novels, today is your lucky day. The Unintended: The Watcher Series Book One is FREE on Kindle all day today. Woot! (And you don’t need a Kindle to read it. You can read on any smart phone, iPad, or computer.)

I promise an update soon, I’ve been on the move since September–and I mean that quite literally. I’ve dragged my family all the way across the Northern United States, into Canada, and down the East Coast in search of adventure and stories. We are hunkered in the Carolinas for the holiday and will continue the adventure soon. If you would like to see a few pictures, you can see them here on Instagram.

Anyway…back to the free book.

There’s a description below, but it’s free, so why not take a risk on something new? Click here to go to Amazon now.

Missing Twilight but want more than a love story? This simple beginning evolves into an epic journey through the shadow world of vampires, fallen angels, and the watchers.

This series is great for anyone who loves the romance of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga, the world building of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments Series, and the high stakes of Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games. When you get to book two, fasten your seatbelt, each book is faster, darker, and sexier.

And that’s not all! The Nexus: Book Two will be on sale starting tomorrow (and for four days) for the bargain price of 99 cents! It’s like Black Friday all over again. Incredibly priced books AND new book boyfriends! What? I know!

I’m super excited to announce the release of Prompt Me Romance. This creative writing workbook and journal is clean enough for teens but sophisticated enough for adults.

Prompt Me Again: Creative Writing Workbook & Journal

It is my pleasure to announce the newest edition of the PROMPT ME SERIES. Woo hoo!

Prompt Me Again is full of new prompts and ideas to get (and keep) you writing.

I had a ton of fun taking all the new pictures. I went so far as getting into a pool fully clothed (with my friend, Jenn) and capturing some eery images. I also found myself wading through waist-high grass (in flip-flops) while getting eaten by mosquitos to nab the perfect sunset pic. And…it was all worth it.

As an aside, both of my editors faves are the “Fairy Tale Mash Up” and the “Facial Expression” reference chart. Regardless, there is something for everyone in the book.


Here is a glimpse of what you get in this new installment.

Clean enough for teens and sophisticated enough for adults.

New Release! Writing Workbook & Journal

I’m so pleased to announce the release of my seventh book! I’ve been teaching English for over two decades, so putting together a writing book seemed a natural progression. Many of the charts and reference materials were items I created for my own writing, and have been sharing them with my writer friends for years. They encouraged me to add to what I had, and get it out to the general public. I hope you find it as useful as I have.
