Enjoy an Excerpt:


Reacting swiftly, Damian lunged out of bed and rushed to Sarah's side, using his body as a shield between Alicia and her mother. "Alicia? Alicia?" he repeated, his voice desperate, hoping to break the hold of whatever trance had possessed her.


Alicia blinked, her eyes refocusing as she met her father's gaze. "Dad?" Her voice was calm, confusion evident in her tone. She glanced down at the knife in her hand. "What happened?"


"That's what we want to know," Damian replied, his voice filled with concern. "Your mother woke up and saw you standing over her with a knife."


Alicia's gaze shifted to Sarah, who sat trembling on the bed. "I don't remember coming in here. I don't know where I got the knife from." She looked back at her father. "I must've been sleepwalking again."


"What's the last thing you remember?" Damian asked, a trace of suspicion in his voice.


Alicia's mind raced, searching for a plausible explanation. She couldn't afford to be caught in the act of sneaking into their room. "I... I remember a nightmare. Yes, that's what it was. I was sleeping, and I had a nightmare. I didn't know what was going on. And the next thing I know, you're shaking me awake."


Relieved by Alicia's explanation, Damian gently took the knife from her hand. "Let me just take this from you," he said, his tone soothing. "And let's get you back into bed."

Q&A With the Author

Do you have any tattoos? Where? When did you get it/them? Where are they on your body?

No, I never got the urge to get one.  But if I did it would be a genius quote from a well-known figure.


Is your life anything like it was two years ago?

My health has went downhill.  I actually died last year and have battled ongoing health issues.


How long have you been writing?

I was six when I first started writing.  My first book was bout fifteen pages called ‘the missing kid.’


What advice would you give a new writer just starting out?

Be patient. Let the story come to you.  And hire a good editor.  I did not do this with a couple of my last books and it reflects it. 


Tell us something about your newest release that is NOT in the blurb.
