Welcome to my Blog! Here you’ll find posts about my life, inspiration I find on the way, and of course, writing updates, excerpts, and cover reveals! I’ll even be reviewing books I read (if you’re here for movies I’m into, check Monster thoughts). Grab your tea (or coffee) and stay awhile!

Character of the Week: Eleanor Lucretia Black

Character of the Week has been updated on the website!
The previous Character of the Week, Xavier, has been placed in the forums in its respective place under Xavier’s name.

And if you don’t feel like trekking over to the website, I’ll just leave Eleanor’s mini bio here:

Age: 24 Forever
Hair: Black
Eyes: Brown | Changes Color With Mood
Title(s): Titulari Secreta in Vampire Order | Self-Proclaimed “Queen” of Elite Creatures

Eleanor L. Black is known by now throughout the fanbase as the antagonist of the century. Driven by a rather unsettling power, Eleanor has only one thing in mind: acquiring Xavier Delacroix as her King. And the power she’s gained? That’s for the betterment of the entire Dark World, of course.
After all, learning Dracula’s incredibly dark secrets does something to a mind. What has it done to Eleanor? Well, it’s made her just a bit more unhinged. She would call it ‘freedom.’
The Vampire that was Eleanor Black was an obedient student (to a fault) and never stopped questioning what more remained in the Dark World; what made she and the other Creatures what they were. Of course, her mentor never took this in kind but Eleanor hardly cared. Once just the slightest glimpse of secrecy was shown to her from her mentor, she took it upon herself to learn all she could that Dracula kept secret.
And she did. The rest is history.

The New Year & A New Focus On My Vampires
I'm choosing, with this round of storytelling, to dive into 'harder topics,' and things I want to write about. I want to give my worlds more nuance, my characters more stakes, and hopefully more heart. I write for everyone but I cannot deny my experiences--Black experiences--are what have shaped me and should shape my writing. I'm adamant about this because of the erasure of my Black characters in THE DARK WORLD series by white readers.
The Tales of Sinner Sharpe: Dark Waters
This helped shape the nature of the story: Sinner is an outcast from this island. He has no magical ability, same as all from Othril, and when on the mainland, this lack of magical ability is apparent—he is ostracized not only because of his physical dark features, but his inability.
Gothic Horror And Inspiration
It was always my intention as of late, with Sinner Sharpe to delve into the horror he's facing--not physical horror--at least not yet, but the mental horror. He's seeing horrific visions, he's losing large gaps of time, he's being attacked on his ship (an already enclosed space) for weeks.
DRACULA is (finally) out in E-Book Format!
