Raven’s Fall – cover reveal January 2016
Emme Ellison lives the ideal 30 something life, complete with stainless steel appliances, a full cable package and a fiancé who uses more retinol cream than she does. Sure, there are ghosts. But they’ve been visiting her since she was seventeen, whispering fortune cookie type messages like, “Your past is your present.”
Then things get weird. Emme finds a locket that sparks visions of Colonial America in the 1580s. She falls for Colin, a vampire who thinks killing people is a romantic gesture. Her ghosts become increasingly pushy, urging her to find the truth about the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island and she can’t seem to shake this dreadful presence that seems to be following her.
When Emme discovers the truth about her link to the doomed colony, she also discovers everyone around her has been lying, even her perky, well-to-do best friend, Libby, and her gym-going fiancé, Brad. Now she must act to save her life, but will it be a fair fight? Did she ever really have a chance, or had the vampire sealed her fate long ago?
Raven’s Fall is scheduled for release September, 2015.
On Darker Shores – work in progress
Emme realizes her role in the fate of the colony is more sinister than she ever could have imagined. She must battle with this truth, continue to thwart those pesky vampires, and decide if she wants anything to do with her fiancé, all while keeping her 401k well-funded.
The first draft of the novel is a 50,000 word, sticky, gooey mess on my computer.
