New Twist on the Vampire Tale

Cassie Skyler is alone in the world, except for her BFF and a building full of tenants she cannot evict. She's looking for Mr. Right. Will she find him at a vampire fan convention? Her parents hid that part of their lives from her until the day they died. It turns out that's not all they kept from her.

Bear Laco is a vampire working for the Collection Agency. His main mission: locate and register any remaining illegal portals between Earthside and Vampside. So why has he been ordered to investigate Cassie? To make matters worse, he can't afford to fall in love with a human being. Not again.

Hello everyone! Where have I been? Writing, of course. I wish I could say I am one of those people who can multitask like crazy. The truth is, when I am working on a book, other things fall by the wayside. That's no problem when housework is involved. But shame on me for neglecting my blog.

My Vampire Wedding is a frothy romp in an alternate reality filled with gorgeous vampires who love humans because we have exactly what they need. Not blood. Auras!

I grew up on Anne Rice and Bram Stoker vampires, and in my youth, they were lots of fun to read. As I grew older, I wanted my vampires to be a little friendlier, more accessible. I love the teeth but not the drinking of blood. Surely we as humans have more to offer than Type O (and A, and B, etc.). But why would a parallel world of vampires bother crossing over to Earthside if not for blood? Well, some of them become addicted to human blood, and others come to collect the human aura which is used Vampside to make medicine to protect the population from the vampire plague.

I hope you enjoy my user friendly vampires!
