People always ask why someone becomes an author and my answer is simple, how could I not? I must write. When your head is full of stories begging to be told you have to let them out, get them down on paper so readers can breath life into the characters giving them a voice.
Editor’s Note: FOR THE SAKE OF REVENGE is a dramatic vampiric tale of revenge and betrayal.
Russian folk lore is interlaced throughout this story, and this definitely isn’t the same old vampire meets girl, girl becomes vampire tale.
Book Description: Set in Sitka Alaska, this is a historical fiction/ paranormal tale of revenge and betrayal that involves a two century old vampire and an abused woman, Tamara Semenova. Tamara seeks out a relationship with a long buried vampire with the hope that she can get revenge on her abusive ex husband.
Author’s Inspiration: A cemetery hidden away in a small town named Sitka Alaska that I visited a few years back.

Editor’s Note: Ghostly happenings plague teenager Ariel after her friend goes missing in GRAVITY.
Book Description: Ariel’s best friend, Jenna, goes missing one night and no knows what happened to her. Ariel has to navigate her social life while strange nightmares of the town orphanage and other ghostly visions plague her, somehow related to her missing friend. She doesn’t know who to trust as new friends and old enemies piece together the truth about what is going on in the small town of Hell.
Author’s Inspiration: An extremely creepy, abandoned seminary in my hometown. It’s four stories tall and very intimidating on the outside, and it’s been the site of a fire and numerous incidents of vandalism. Everyone in town thinks the place is haunted, and I always thought it would make a good story. My mom gave me a photograph of it from the 1800s that she found at a yard sale, and I had it hanging above my desk the entire time I wrote the first draft of what would become Gravity.

I became an author because books have always been like friends to me. From the time I was little, I wrote stories, and I knew pretty early that I wanted to pursue being a professional author because it was what I loved to do most. I started actually taking it seriously after my second child was born, because I needed an escape, so I’d stay up when everyone else went to sleep and tinker with my stories. Gravity is the story I started with because it’s what I wanted in a scary story–it isn’t just about things that go bump in the night (although those are definitely there, bumping away) but also about testing friendships and laughing when times get hard.

Editor’s Note: THE INFERNAL DETECTIVE is a paranormal mystery where magic lies just beyond the veil.
She kept it fun, interesting, suspenseful, and FRESH.
Book Description: It’s a week before Riga Hayworth’s wedding to casino owner, Donovan Mosse, and her metaphysical detective skills are about to be put to the test. A body in the bedroom, a missing fiancee, and a duo of ditzy aunts have Riga running in circles. And when Riga smells necromancy… all bets are off.
Author’s Inspiration: Arsenic and Old Lace.
From Book: Riga checked her watch. It was thirteen o’clock, and her feet hurt. She’d never liked high heels, shouldn’t have worn the over-priced, strappy black pumps. Riga had been almost relieved when one of the heels snapped, relieved for the excuse to slip upstairs, relieved to escape.

I worked overseas for nearly fourteen years, in the fringes of the former USSR and deep in the Afghan war zone. And after learning to love my inner Walter Mitty, I became a mystery author, and have published four novels under the misterio press imprint. I’ve never met a dessert I didn’t like, and my guilty pleasures are watching Ghost Whisperer reruns and drinking good wine.

Editor’s Note: YA readers: Are you ready for an action packed vampire novel with Navy SEALS? ON THE EDGE OF HUMANITY is here! This is not your mother’s vampire novel.
On the Edge of Humanity is far from ‘yet another vampire novel’.

Those who enjoy Amanda Hocking and Rachel Caine, will like ON THE EDGE OF HUMANITY.
Author’s Inspiration: First, I love character driven books and I wanted to impart my imagination to a character that starts out struggling in life. Two, I love the fantasy world paralleled with the real world and how the two intertwine. Finally, I take great pride in my military service and I wanted to bring that aspect into the story.

I love to transport myself into other worlds—ones where vampires and the fantastical exist. Where life is the playground for the impossible. I created fantasy worlds at a young age as a way to deal with life. Yep, I had imaginary friends and talked to myself a lot. I was always creating, thinking, drawing and writing. I believe words are the key to opening the door to extraordinary places with amazing characters that tell a great story.
When I’m not working my full time job, and plotting Jo’s next challenge, I love to play golf with my husband, and spend time with my two dogs.
Editor’s Note: RISE OF THE FALLEN is a dark, sexy, USA Today Recommended Read and eLit Award winner.
I really enjoyed the story and I loved the secondary characters as well.
Book Description: Micah Black is a vampire in trouble. He’s lost his second mate and wants to die, having barely survived the death of his first mate centuries ago. After striking a deal with his sworn enemy to kill him, an unlikely heroine, a stripper named Samantha, interferes and saves him…and steals Micah’s heart. Now Micah must survive and find a way to protect Sam from an enemy who will do anything to finish what he started.
Author’s Inspiration: Rise of the Fallen was inspired by my love of vampires, my desire to bring a different type of vampire species to readers, as well as my own life. Micah’s life resembled where I was emotionally at the time, and writing his story was therapeutic in lifting myself into a better place.
