Synopsis: Caleb Hodgins is a lupine known to the Arkin City Pack as an easy going wolf with a carefree attitude. But after tragedy strikes because of what he is, he’s left with a painful secret and the weight of grief hanging on his shoulders. Such heartache causes Caleb to swear he’ll never seek companionship with a human woman again, and it’s a plan that works well enough—until Emily Sterling comes to town.

When presented with the opportunity to take a long sought job in Arkin City, Emily quickly accepts, moving halfway across the country to live next door to her childhood friend, Joslyn Santiago-Hodgins. After years of keeping in touch long distance, she finally meets the people in Joslyn’s life, and finds everyone easy to fit in with—that is, everyone except Joslyn’s brother-in-law, Caleb.

Emily has no idea why he’s so put off by her, and his dismissive behaviors become increasingly disappointing as her attraction to him turns into undeniable interest. Yet she also doesn’t realize just how quickly her fun loving attitude and playful wit draws Caleb in, reminding him of his painful secret and his drive to prevent history from repeating itself.

But a case of missing lupines sweeping the southern states may put Emily in danger simply by her unwitting association with the Arkin City Pack, giving Caleb more than one reason to protect her. In the process, the gears of bonding start to turn, and there’s nothing he can do to stop it, forcing him to face his fear of revealing the truth about what he is, and risk losing Emily for good.

I found this story to have a detailed plot with complex characters and some HOT romance.

Vampires & Werewolves – The Crucible Paranormal Romance Series

Before I get started, let’s just say that two of these animations gave me so much trouble I wanted to put an axe through my computer screen, and the one for the werewolves was one of them. UGH! It didn’t come out exactly how I wanted it to, but it works as it is, so I give up. ._.


I’ll be honest, when I first started writing my series, I’d actually decided to forgo writing any stories about vampires whatsoever. At the time, mainstream media and television shows were filled with nothing but vampires (i.e., True Blood, Twilight, The Vampire Diaries), and I’d gotten really tired of seeing them. My favorite paranormal creatures are dragons, werewolves, and witches, and I wanted to focus my stories on things of that nature. But as time went on, that sour taste in my mouth started to fade away, though I knew that if I were going to write a story about vampires, I had to do something different. So I started looking at commonalities between most vampires, taking away things I liked, and what I didn’t like, and began hammering out something I hoped might be “new” while still staying true to the major idea of what a vampire is overall.

Because of this, I feel like the vampires found in The Crucible Series may be one of the most complex races I’ve developed. From mentality to ability, there’s a lot to describe, but considering I’m happy with the way Fallen Hearts turned out, I think I did a decent job of getting it all organized.


What can I say, I love werewolves, though I should probably refer to them as Ferines in this instance as it’s the name they prefer. In a sense, I think I stuck to the more traditional definition of what a werewolf is in my series, though they don’t actually turn into legitimate beasts or monsters. Sure, their faces become more animalistic, their size increases, and they gain claws and fangs, but if you were to see one in it’s “beastly” form at a distance, you’d probably think, “That’s just a really big human”.

Let’s just hope this Ferine hasn’t turned savage because that might be your last thought if so! D:

In any case, I wanted to post werewolves and vampires together because the truth of the matter is that these beings have a history, and it’s a history I haven’t actually revealed yet outside of saying, “Oh, yeah, by the by, they’re natural born enemies.” Will we get to find out what this history is? Let’s just say the more books I write, the closer everything will come to being revealed! :D

Stay tuned for next time when we learn more about mages, Perosian demons, and why all divinians seem to have a habit of sitting on sticks =|!

Cheers! :D

Strange Brew Cover Update – and I’m on Twitter!

Well, Strange Brew has finally joined the march of updated book covers! This means I’m free to finally (and fully) focus on Fallen Hearts from both a writing and designing perspective (not that I haven’t been writing just as much as before lol!). Also, Strange Brew will be available for pre-order on Smashwords on July 27th! Release date is TBA, but it will be sometime after August 21st! :)

With this said, I have a few more announcements to make, mostly being that I’ve finally opened a twitter account, which is probably long overdue. But…well, twitter scares me lol! Still, I added that nifty little widget to the side bar so you guys can see my tweets from here, oh my!

Lastly, I don’t think I ever provided a link to my Smashwords profile, but here it is in case any of you were curious!

Cheers! :)

Strange Brew Now Available!


Feeling out of touch with her magical gifts, Aislinn Carmichael is a witch seeking a means of restoring her ability to its fullest potential. Despite the warnings of family and friends, the endeavor inevitably drives her to accept the initiation trial of a witch coven called The Trine.

Their test demands the capture of a supernatural creature, a task Aislinn has little doubt she can accomplish with relative ease. But of all the potentially benign creatures she could’ve snared, none other than a feral werewolf stumbles into her trap. Making matters worse is The Trine’s intentions for her dangerous captive, forcing Aislinn to release him and potentially risk retaliation.

But vengeance is the farthest thing from the werewolf’s mind.

Troy Ashland is a werewolf standing at death’s door, slowly losing his humanity until there’s nothing left but savage instincts. It’s a process all werewolves face, and the only thing that can appease his restless beast is his mate. So when word arrives from an oracle saying to travel to the Southern US to find her, he’s on the next flight out.

After his arrival in Arkin City, the last thing Troy expects is to be caught in a magical trap. But all is forgiven with one glimpse of his temporary jailor, who turns out to be the very woman he was searching for. Still, the task of winning her is surprisingly difficult. Not only is Aislinn inexplicably resisting their attraction, but The Trine won’t leave well enough alone …

Strange Brew is now available for $3.99 on Amazon Kindle! Read an excerpt from this book here!

A Quick Update

It took Amazon a lot longer to get up the preorder than it normally takes them, but Strange Brew is finally up for those who are interested! I apologize for not editing the last post sooner, but I didn’t expect them to take so long lol! :)

Something else I haven’t mentioned (mostly because it hasn’t seemed like a completely “big deal”) is that I’ve upped the language in Strange Brew just a slight bit. I wouldn’t call it a drastic “upping” by far, but I’m going to continue on this route in future books, and wanted to make a quick note of it while I had the chance.

In any case, Strange Brew will be published on Friday, and I hope you guys enjoy it!

Cheers! :D

Happy October! (Strange Brew Updates)

Hi guys! Just wanted to drop in to wish everyone a happy October, and of course, Happy Halloween! This is one of the best months! :)

With that said, I have a few updates on Strange Brew to pass along! So! Anyone who’s been looking forward to the third book in The Crucible series will be happy to hear that it’s roughly 95% done. In fact, I’m hoping to have a Halloween release! This being said, I’d put it up for preorder on Halloween, but because there’s always the chance of unforeseen issues arising, I’m not entirely certain I’ll be doing that.

In any case, I have a very short tidbit from the story to share with you, and I hope you enjoy it! (And remember, the book isn’t done, so some things may be subject to change!) Continue reading “Happy October! (Strange Brew Updates)”
