THE PREVIOUS BOOKS IN THE SERIES

Touching Eternity - Amazon Touching Eternity (Prequel): Before Fallon was created to destroy. Before love became the ultimate weapon of destruction. There was Amalie and the horror that started a revolution that tore the fabric of humanity, of everything standing in the balance between power, hope and survival. Amalie has one wish, one gnawing desire — she wants to die. She wants to leave this world behind with its pain and darkness. She wants to finally breathe. But Amalie is a prisoner, a disease, not fit for life. She is unwanted, unnatural. She is defective, something useless and broken. Her own mother hadn’t wanted her. Her father hated her. The world shunned her and the only person she had ever loved, truly and with all her heart and soul, couldn’t stand the sight of her, couldn’t stand the thought of ever being with her. She repulsed him. Her insanity disgusted him. He’d forgotten her. He’d left her behind, deserted and abandoned her to a madman hell bent on crushing her, stealing her soul and shattering her will. But what if she’s finally given hope? A reason to live? Can Amalie finally accept the hand offering so much for so little in return? Can she love again when she has nothing left to give? Can she finally be free?

Touching Fire - Amazon Touching Fire (book 2):
Finding my past was supposed to end the nightmare.
Only it was just the beginning.
Entrusting the fate of the world, not to mention my and Isaiah’s life to a father I had never met is a big leap of faith on my part. But it’s a necessary risk. Ashton is the key to protecting Isaiah and keeping me out of Garrison’s clutches. He is also the only one who can tell me what I am, except what I learns is that I am from a world that is far more dangerous than anyone could have possibly imagined.
As my powers grow out of control, I must pick between my mortality and a legacy that does not include Isaiah. I must summon the courage to face a destiny that will test the boundaries of everything I have ever known. But most of all, I must protect Isaiah from the monster within myself and trust the man whose toxic blood runs through my veins.
Danger builds as power clashes between two evils, both seeking me to tip the scales to eternal darkness and suffering.
Can humanity rise to face an ancient calling to which I am powerless to stop? Can I protect those I cares about or will their blood forever stain my hands?
Touch Vengeance. Touch Malice. Touch Fire.

15 is only the beginning - Hunger release day thoughts.

When i first started writing, i never thought i would ever write 1 book, let alone 15.

I am at a stage with my writing now where i feel everything is so much easier. (Except marketing. 'cause that will never be easy!)
I mean editing and writing.

When i started it was near impossible for me to see my mistakes. But when i look at a manuscipt now, i can see all the grammatical errors, the wrong punctuation and the plot holes.
It's like i am seeing for the first time.
It's like the book is a puzzle and i can see the missing pieces. I can literally see them falling into place as if they are highlighted in front of me.
I can also see plotlines and scenes play out as vividly as if they were a movie or real life.

I don't know if anyone else sees this, or if it is just the way my brain works.

In saying that, i am very proud of my current piece of work, like all my book babies. But in terms of character development, i think this book, Hunger, is one of my best. That is my total biased, egotistic opinion though. ;)

I urge you to judge for yourself.

I urge you to let me know how one of my books makes you feel.

My 15th title, Hunger, is out now on all platforms.

Nivian jumped over the edge of the bridge, landing with a soft tap on the surface of the water. She reached down, pulled the soul of the driver up by the collar of his shirt, and stood him up next to her on top of the water. She took the drivers hand palm up in hers, waving her other hand over his. She pinched the air and pulled, lifting up and exposing his life string, his wide eyes were hypnotized by the glowing string. She grabbed the scythe strapped to her back and swung. With a slow deliberate movement she sliced the human’s thread. The light formed a ball and hovered as she pulled out the small pocket watch. The life light floated down to the watch and sunk into it, disappearing. With a snap, she closed the watch and returned it to her pocket.
“You really shouldn’t drink and drive; you could have seriously hurt someone,” she said giving him an apathetic look. He gaped at her, mouth opening and closing like a fish. “Yes, you really are dead.” She confirmed as she started to turn away.
“Are you … the devil?” he managed to sputter.
“No, of course not. I am just the natural order of things,” she said, briefly looking back at him. “Wait here; your spirit counselor will be here soon for you to guide you to your afterlife. I have other jobs tonight,” She turned, walking away as she pulled her hood back up over her head and vanished.
