Book blurb

A darkness approaches…
… only a warrior fae can stop it.

Evil forces threaten to cover the human world with darkness. The faerie world is dependent on the human world’s survival or they, too, will perish. Shayna, a faerie warrior of the Light is sent to the human world to prevent that from happening and must convince a human to help her or she will fail in her task.

Can a New York detective accept what he thought existed only in books?

When Shayna reveals her true self to Detective Pierce Cochran, his world is thrust upside down. Everything he believed to be a fairy tale is true.

As the faerie and detective join forces against a growing number of evil beings, will they and their group of mis-matched warriors succumb or rise triumphant?

Enjoy all three books in the Fate of the Faes trilogy:

Shayna…A Fae of the Light must find a human to fight against the darkness.
Deema…A fallen fae finds redemption.

Kasdeya…Once a human, then a demon, now facing the consequences of her choice.


What was the highlight of writing this book?

I enjoyed writing this epic trilogy where good overcomes evil despite overwhelming odds. When characters who are different must work together for the common good. Where people are thrust into situations they’d never be able to get through alone, but together can triumph.

Are you working on your next book already? What can you tell us?

My next book is dystopian, although I write mostly mystery and suspense. In the dystopian series think Hunger Games meets I Am Legend.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

I read, paint, crochet, cross-stitch, diamond dot. I always have multiple projects going. Whatever relaxes me and lets my story ideas simmer.

What’s your favorite writing snack?

Dark chocolate M&Ms. Is there anything else? 😊

When did you write your first book? Is that first one published?

I actually starting writing my first book more than 40 years ago. I finished it by the age of forty. Unfortunately, I went through a vanity press. I’ve since got the rights back, but it’s so bad I don’t think I can even rewrite it. My first published book was in 2007, a cozy mystery titled Fudge-Laced Felonies. It was a blast to write.
