The last thing Angus Donohue wanted was to pass his demon summoning class.  Becoming a warlock was not something Angus aspired to.  It was bad enough to have his powerful, arrogant father bullying him into entering the Warlock College.  Angus would love to fail and go into medicine instead.


Unfortunately for the budding warlock he succeeds in summoning a demon.  What he didn’t expect was to be taken back to Demonside by the powerful demon mage Saka.


Apparently, Saka was ready for a summoning so that he could kidnap a warlock in order to rebalance their world.  Whether he’s ready to hear the truth or not Angus is witness to an eye-opening experience.  One that the warlocks back home don’t want anyone to know. Angus’s understanding of how their two worlds work will be irrevocably changed.   He can’t live in Demonside no matter how he feels about Saka and going home is dangerous.  Caught between two realms and neither is safe.


Warlock in Training tells a unique, complex, and addictive story that is hard to put down.  The intricately woven plot is imaginative and fantastical.  Characters are able to realistically tell this original story as lie after lie is uncovered by a naïve student. Saka is a special individual, straightforward and strong.  Together they have to save two worlds. Their forbidden feelings bring added spice to the storyline.  Danger and drama abound in the completely enthralling Warlock in Training.

Teams of trained supernatural beings live in the shadows.  They deal with unique, other worldly problems that law enforcement divisions are ill equipped to deal with on a daily basis.  One such team is code named Jack Rabbit. It consists of vampires Jonas Forge, a cop, a computer hacker Blair Turner, Declan who is a skilled thief, and werewolf Dr. Lucas Coate, a medical examiner.  They are the Vampire Guard.


Recently the team was able to put together a rather horrifying puzzle.  A highly successful art thief is none other than a psychopathic killer each member of the team has met at one time or another in their lives.  This thief is a vampire and always leaves a trail of bodies when he strikes.


As Jonas, Blair, Declan, and Lucas make plans to catch their objective at an upcoming art show they enlist the help of two other teams in the Vampire Guard.  This will be a coordinated effort so that this thief can be brought to justice.  If he slips through their fingers he’s sure to leave another body count and that’s something they can’t let happen.  Vengeance, revenge, or justice.  They will stop this killer.


Quarry is a well crafted, intense story.  Intertwined with the teams’ effort to catch a killer the characters reminisce about the past and when this vampire touched their lives.  The present and the past fully flesh out the suspenseful plotline.  The cast is large, but luckily easy enough to follow without trouble.  Sexy character couples and a murderer, Quarry gives readers an engaging, entertaining tale to enjoy.

The earth has been thrown into turmoil ever since the human world and Underhill, the home of the light and dark sidhe, Merged.  Monsters and creatures of myth raise havoc which requires licensed Stalkers to handle the situation.  A grizzled Stalker named Dempsey unwittingly saves the life of an elfin slave won in a game of chance.


The elfin Kai Gracen is called a Chimera by both sidhe factions.  Neither light nor dark Kai was made by his sire, an extremely powerful Master of the Hunt who used and tortured his son for as long as Kai could remember.


Recent events have led a light sidhe lord to establish a foothold in San Diego.  He is High Lord Ryder of the Southern Rise Court.  And he has claimed Kai as his responsibility.


As a licensed Stalker Kai manages to make a decent living, but when he learns that Dempsey is dying and needs specialized medical care the elfin breaks his own oath and agrees to work with Ryder on a dangerous job in order to pay his aged mentor’s bills.


Their trip to the Nevada desert to hunt for Sidhe fertility rite information becomes a deadly mission when the human professor in charge is murdered and Kai is almost blown up.  At this rate they won’t even make it out of San Diego alive.


Adventure, life and death drama, and chilling mysteries arise in Mad Lizard Mambo.  Chimera Kai and Lord Ryder tip toe around their hidden desires as they journey to save the sidhe race.  It hard to tell friend from foe as the bodies begin to stack up.  An addictive tale from start to finish Mad Lizard Mambo thoroughly engages the reader.  A glossary is provided to clear up sidhe/human confusion in the storyline.  One warning: there is no sex at all and while Kai and Ryder definitely feel something for each other nothing is accomplished in this book.  Having said that their story in Mad Lizard Mambo is riveting.  Fun, scary, and full of mystery.  Enjoy.
