I’m honored to celebrate this momentous occasion with Evernight. I’m going to give you a look at my first Evernight title and my latest release but first, a few words to express me gratitude.

Wow. What a ride I’ve had with a publisher that has treated me so kind and like family. I’ve met (and read!) so many great authors across the globe. We encourage each other like no other publisher I’ve been with thus far. I am beyond proud to be an Evernight author.

Let’s take a through memory lane, shall we, with my first solo release with Evernight.

The Wolves of Argonne
Published Jan 24, 2012
Naughty Fairytales Line
fantasy

Rosabel lives on the edge of Argonne Forest just outside Bois de’Lune village. A place where werewolves rule and don’t care for humans meddling in their affairs. During the harvest festival, she catches the attention of the alpha Urlic. Beneath the mask, he makes intent known with one hungry stare and awakens something she dwelling deep within her soul. With the virile and powerful Urlic, Rosabel discovers extortion of the sensuous kind and submits to his whims unconditionally. When the arrival of another werewolf challenges Ulric for his prize, Rosabel finds herself between two wanting lovers. Can Rosabel choose between her lusty suitors, or will the overbearing males learn to share their lady in the crimson cloak?

Available for purchase at: Evernight Publishing, Bookstrand, All Romance and Amazon.

Obviously, I love writing Naught Fairytales because my last release was also one, and I plan on many more!

Tales from Beowulf Hollow, Book 2

Some want to find love at all costs. Some believe there is a cost to find love.

When Mary Becken’s mother passes away, she takes over her business of making fine tailored clothes in the small town of Beowulf Hollow. Not satisfied with the fabrics available, she unearths her mother’s loom and creates a new textile by weaving thin strands of gold. Soon her small mountain town is swarming with new customers and invitations come pouring in for New York Press Week. One in particular isn’t interested in her sharing her talents with the rest of the world.

Benjamin Elstiltzkin is a man used to getting exactly what he wants. For his fashion business, he’s downright ruthless and a small town woman isn’t going to ruin his chances in being on top of the fashion world. He hatches a plan to make Miss Becken work exclusively for him whether she wants to or not. The one thing he never counted on in his strategy was the temptation she’d pose to his never-ending bachelorhood.

With a deadline looming to get his collection, Benjamin might have met his match in more ways than one.

I’ve always been a fan of twisted fairy tales in any form. I once concocted a story where the evil queens were just misunderstood and the princesses were really the ‘bad’ element. however, what I’ve been dabbling in lately is Evernight Publishing’s Naughty Fairy Tales line. Right now I have two available–One based on Little Red Riding Hood and another on Snow White. I have another one in the editing stage based on Hansel & Gretel titled Witches & Lycans which is set in the 1960’s based in the fictitious town of Beowulf Hollow, Pennsylvania.

But right now, let me take you through my inspiration for the Snow White based story The Forest Maiden. First off, I wanted a strong female character in a world where arranged marriages were common place. It has a feel of historical but it’s a fantasy because of the magical elements. I also wanted to have all the classic elements of the story–the apple, the corset whose strings tightened, the poisoned comb, and of course the seven dwarves. Except I changed the dwarves to monks who lived with a vow of silence and deep in the woods. They protect those who protect the forest. Next, I added the huntsman–and her main love. Instead of the evil queen sending him in to kill her, I made it that he was magically bonded to Snow White’s father. Part of an assassin guild, he does the bidding of his master until his death and then things get tricky.

It was important for me to have the elements of the traditional story though the apple ends up being a pear. Eirlys (Snow White), while a hunter, finds herself no match for the Prince her father betrothed in close quarters. She knows the patience of the hunt, not the ferocity of hand to hand. Strong yes, but as we all are she has her weaknesses as well. It’s the human element.

 

Eirlys Edurne wants nothing to do with the prim and proper world her title endows her. When her father intends to force her to marry a vile Prince from a neighboring kingdom, she takes flight into the forest. Only the thrill of the hunt and the call of wildlife can tame her until a mysterious man invades her campsite. Her guest at her fire mistakes her as one of Earth Mother’s forest maidens. Eirlys uses her feminine wiles to seduce him only to find that her heart has other plans for her mighty warrior. When her father perishes, Eirlys is thrust back into the world she loathes by her stepmother. Will she break free of the woman’s clutches and once again reunite with the man who holds her heart?
