She's the Seeker. He's the hunted. What's at stake could kill them both...

For 17-year-old Seeker, Janie Grey, ridding the Baltimore streets of the undead is an inherited duty passed down from her Cherokee ancestors. Seeker Training Lesson #1: Never trust the undead. After her father’s tragic death, Janie creates her own life lesson: Love isn’t worth the risk. Both lessons are easy to follow until she encounters the flawed Kai Sterdam. At first, she believes he is the hybrid she is trained to hunt. But, when he has human traits, she determines she doesn’t know what he is. As Janie’s intrigue over who Kai is pushes her deeper into his mysterious past, she discovers a shocking truth that is even more harrowing than the evil they are up against. It’s a secret Kai wants to keep hidden, especially from Janie.

Indie-Licious Blog Hop: Emanare Teaser

Thanks for stopping by! As part of the Indie-Licious Blog Hop, I will be sharing a short teaser paragraph from one of my newly released books, Emanare. Hope you enjoy! Head over to the amazing blogs below for more teasers by excellent authors. 

Sam froze. It made sense. It explained the struggle she felt inside—why Nieander’s influence was so overwhelming, why she had a natural gravitational pull toward him, and the reason she felt so easily swayed to leave Evrik. A shiver ran through her at the realization...she had evil blood.

Author Signing/FREE book for a Cause: Carter's Run for Dandy-Walker

"Dandy-Walker…Not many people have heard of it and yet 1 in 2,500 babies are born with this syndrome. Dandy-Walker is a congenital brain malformation which affects the brain, specifically the cerebellum, which controls movement, and the fluid-filled spaces around it." -From Carter's Run for Dandy-Walker

I wanted to share the story of an amazing child and one of the bravest mothers I've ever had the privilege of speaking with. After reading their story, I believe people like Lisa are true heroes. They teach us that we can take the unexpected circumstances life throws at us and turn them into ways of helping each other (and learning compassion and patience *from Lisa's words* along the way). This is truly what it means to be a human being. It is my hope that I can make a difference in others' lives as Lisa, Carter, and their family have done for so many. 

Lisa is the founder of the Carter's Run for Dandy-Walker 5K, taking place on May 19, 2013 in Ashburn, VA. Her son, Carter, is a lively 5-year-old who has been living with the congenital brain abnormality known as Dandy-Walker. Read more about the syndrome and the family's story on their website:

I am honored to be participating in the run with my family, where I will be signing books and donating $2 out of every book sold to Carter's Run for Dandy-Walker. All proceeds of the event will go to the non-profit Dandy-Walker Alliance, based in Kensington, MD, to fund a cure and raise awareness. 

As another way to show my support for Lisa, Carter and every family affected, I will provide everyone who donates and/or signs up for the 5K with with a coupon to Smashwords where you can download my debut novel, Dark Seeker, for FREE. The book will be available in all e-formats for all e-readers. Leave a comment with your e-mail and I'll get you the coupon code.

Registration Form/Carter's Run Info


Please help support Carter and many other children who have been diagnosed with this congenital brain abnormality by sharing the link below on facebook/twitter/blog/etc. One thing we can do is spread awareness:
1 in 2,500 babies are born w/ this syndrome. Find out how you can help support children like Carter & get a FREE book!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you on May 19th :)

Life and death, love and hate, friends and enemies...

For as long as she can remember, seventeen-year-old Alexis Forbes can hear the thoughts of others. Most recently, she is disturbed by the dark, unfamiliar voice of a frightening killer: callous, cunning, charismatic…and dead.

She hears his every sinister thought. But she can’t tell anyone. No one would believe her. Alexis is suddenly being haunted by a terrifying past she doesn’t remember, and a ghost with a serious score to settle. Even Chance, the gorgeous new guy she’s falling for, has his own ghostly secret. He’s definitely not like any guy she’s ever met. Alexis soon discovers she has a connection to the dead and it runs much deeper than she could ever imagine. And if the sociopathic entity has his way, she’ll finally be sentenced to the fate she escaped thirteen years ago.
