Parade of Monsters


cut from their vines

gutted and lit

create a path

as darkness arrives

and the macabre celebrations begin

Nightmares are lived out in makeup and paint

Chances are braved under candlelight and masks

as the parade of monsters marches

through sweetness and music

I love the time of year when the leaves change and the air has chilled into a cold fog that promises magic and mystery. During autumn, I devote a large amount of time to watching scary movies, reading horror novels, and decorating my house for Halloween. Writing stories in the paranormal romance genre has been a wonderful experience for me because it has allowed me to bend reality to create strange, extraordinary worlds. I add a dose of suspense to everything I write because I have always loved to read stories that keep me wondering what will happen next.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been working on book 1 of my Haven Forest paranormal romance series. The Haven Forest series will be a subseries of my Stranger Creatures books (Wolf’s Challenge, Bear’s Edge, Tiger’s Last Chance, book 4 coming soon)

Book 1 of the Haven Forest series is AJ and Ellie’s story.

AJ’s mistake during a Shifter Army Enforcement rescue mission cost Ellie’s brother his life. Ellie wants to hate AJ but a chance encounter in a rowdy bar reveals he’s not the cold, heartless man she thought him to be.
Accepting a job at AJ’s new shifter resort means the promise of a fabulous new career for Ellie. One problem- she can’t seem to forget about her attraction to him.
