It's with pleasure I offer my debut novel, Curse Me Not, for your enjoyment. It brings a new and southern twist to paranormal romance that I hope "y'all" will enjoy. [Publisher: Champagne Books, Released: December 2014, 280 pages, ISBN: 9781771551243, ASIN: B00PKLJF9Q]
Curse Me Not introduces southern unsophisticate Elzetta Swan who recently gained the ability to see auras and the more lucrative ability to clean revenge curses from those auras. Embracing the gift faster than grass through a goose, she’s about to finish her first year as a licensed "bodywasher" with a trendy new lifestyle and a countrified inner child that’s skipping all the way to the bank.
Then a routine cleansing turns preternaturally butt ugly. Suddenly finding herself in over her head, Elzetta begins to suspect a powerful invoker has come to town—one who’s hooked on the rush of setting particularly nasty curses—and that he’s visiting at the behest of a mysterious local who has a serial hunger for revenge. As she attempts to track down the culprits, Elzetta will face two fateful confrontations. Each will threaten her new life and the hallelujah hankering she has for the reluctant white knight who’s helping her, but together these confrontations could do much worse. They could create in Elzetta a vengeful rage all her own.

My Knoxville writers’ group has been at it again with more flash fiction. This time we used Seventh Sanctum to give us individual prompts. Seventh Sanctum is a website that provides randomly generated ideas that inspire writers. The following is what came out of my random prompt, “A Jew on the River Styx.” Since I’m Jewish, it seemed a random bit of fate!
On one of my earliest trips abroad, I happened to strike up a conversation with a fellow backpacker over expressos at some student café in Paris. One topic led to another, and she ended up telling me about a strange decision made by a friend of hers. Now, many years later, the backpacker’s tale came to mind when I was challenged to create a piece of flash fiction about going overseas. I daresay young girls still agonize over the same decision: the who, the when—although in light of the…Continue
Rage is not anger. Don’t confuse the two.
We can rant at a neighbor’s dog that won’t stop barking, we can snap at a significant other for not picking up their dirty underwear, we can even feel our blood pressure rise at the words of a politician or shout at another driver who cuts…Continue
While I write paranormal romance and urban fantasy, many members of my local writers group focus on science fiction. At a recent group meeting, we fell into a discussion of how hard it is to develop truly "alien" aliens. After all, anything that comes out of a human brain, no matter how sci-fi’ish, tends to be anthropomorphic and thus too comprehensible, even familiar.
Following the discussion, we assigned ourselves an abbreviated…Continue
