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!

New Fantasy Series. Pirates and Vampires?

So I’ve been struggling with JUDGMENT if you haven’t been paying attention to my most recent writing-related tweets, and after talking with fellow author Elana Mudgan about our books and fantasy in general, I’m really eager to get started on the fantasy series that I started to write during finishing up THE DARK WORLD series.


If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I’ve been writing a mercenary/pirate story for a long time. Well now, I’ve decided to put JUDGMENT on the side and focus my time on Sinner Sharpe.

A lot of changes are taking place.

For one, he’s no longer a by-the-numbers white man with brown hair (aren’t there enough of those?). I’ve been visualizing him as a dark-skinned, long-haired (thick black locks) muscular man…with fangs. (spoiler!)

I’m eager to continue writing it and expanding on what’s already there.

I can tell you that this tale of his documents the start of his…darker journeys as a mercenary.

He’s traveling on some dark waters to his next target last I left him and there are tales of this place. Disturbing tales of beings called Blood Demons.

I started making the map of the land he’s traveling to and have shared a sneak peek below.

Sneak peek of the map of the land Sinner Sharpe must travel to.

Sneak peek of the map of the land Sinner Sharpe must travel to.

It’s not complete, but it’s a start. I imagine as the story goes on I’ll flesh it out as places and the land comes to me. But it’s a complete difference for me having the map being made while I’m writing. Keeps me on track. I plan to keep Sin and his men on this damaged island for the majority of the book where they’ll face terrible trials attempting to get their kill.

I’m excited to work on the lore of this world seriously and with more depth and continuity than I did with THE DARK WORLD series.

Though this may mean querying will take a bit longer, I’m happy to be writing something I’m actually interested in!

‘Till next time!

With Blood and Love,

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!
If you haven't opened your email by now (and why aren't you subscribed to the newsletter, yet?) then you don't know that DRACULA: Book 6, the final book in The Dark World series has been released!
‘Dracula’ is Live – The End of The Dark World series Is Here
It's been a wild ride since the start of The Dark World series with Book 1 back in 2013/2014. Naturally, a lot has changed since the first book (just read through the blog to see how much), and although this journey has been beset with trials, drawbacks, and more, I'm proud to say the series is finally finished. I feel free. Elated.
