WIP Wednesday - When Sirens Screech


Here’s another little excerpt from When Sirens Screech:

“Sir? Won’t you reconsider allowing me the chance to question the suspect?” I hope he’ll say yes, but I fear he won’t change his mind.
Fear wins.

“If you have questions for him, you can feed them to me. Do you think he’s a vampire? A werewolf? Something else? God help me if there is a something else.” He mutters the last bit.

You can preorder When Sirens Screech today!

New Release Tuesday - When Wolves Howl

Finally! When Wolves Howl is out in the world! Plenty more action, adventure, scares, cunning and more from Detective Clarissa Tempest! She won't let a werewolf frighten her. ;)


If you've read any of the Bedlam in Bethlehem stories, I'd love to know which one is your favorite so far! Do you enjoy reading about vamps and wolves that aren't the forbidden love interest?

Monday Writing Report

I'm still working hard on When Sirens Screech. It's really coming along nicely! Over halfway done already. Crazy, but it's basically typing itself. I love it when that happens!


If you've read any of the Bedlam in Bethlehem stories, I'd love to know which character is your favorite and which one you would like to read more about!

Phoenix Prime Friday Feature


Phoenix Prime is a writing course I took. The writers involved, the instructors, we all became a family. I've decided to start a weekly feature of one book of theirs. Happy reading!



Who's afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?


Arrested and put on trial for his life, a frightened wolf is desperate to tell his side of the story. You may have heard tales of a vulnerable girl dressed in red, proudly taking a basket to her lonely grandmother. You may have heard of evil plans and a costume misdirection. You may even have heard of a terrifying wolf who fitted two people into a rabbit-sized belly.

Lies. You've been fooled with wicked lies. 
So, listen now while the wolf is talking and pay him due attention. Who knows if he'll survive to recite his fearful tale again?

Throwback Thursday – Excerpt Edition


Here’s an excerpt from Of Rose and Cruelty:

A large shadow stirs behind me. The beast.

Shakily, I turn to face it. It remains in the shadows, and I cannot see its hideous face up close. It sniffs loudly, and steam exits its large nostrils.

“I… I am the gardener.” I thrust out the weeds I’m holding as proof.

Suddenly, it lurches forward, its face inches from mine. It’s studying me. I cannot tell what it thinks of me or my purpose, but slowly it slinks back to the shadows.

Try as I might, I must confess that encounter frightened and even shamed me. Focusing on my task at hand soothes me slightly, and I reach for the moss covering the castle wall.

A loud, horrific, animalistic roar bellows from behind me. Moisture covers my back and then my front as I turn around to see that the beast has not left. I use the weeds to wipe his saliva from my cheeks.

“I’m only trying to do my job,” I protest, forcing my words to contain fear and not anger.

It opens its mouth again, tusks glistening.

“Not the castle. Understood.”

The beast huffs and returns to the shadows once more.

It takes me a long time to settle after that encounter. If only I had my musket or my sword on me! But, alas, I had neither at the time.
