While I classify myself as a paranormal romance writer I believe most would agree I fall into the category of fantasy/paranormal.
Though born in Massachusetts, I grew up in New Hampshire. Lucky me─I was the daughter of a TWA employee. This meant I was able to travel quite a bit. Traveling introduced me to so many different cultures. Those very cultures inspired stories. Thus far, I’ve written tales surrounding Ireland, Scotland, England, Greece, Italy and New England.
My latest release, Darkest Memory, is a steamy little vampire story that─while labeled a contemporary with a Maine setting─will take the reader back to medieval England often. Expect to revisit a historical night at Westminster Abbey and roam the English forest during a time of great danger.
As for the hero and heroine, coming together could prove disastrous. Cutthroat journalist, Calah Arlington thinks she’s landed the interview of a lifetime. Vampire, Gabriel knows better. The vampire who created him has awoken. She’s not happy. Jealous and vengeful, no one can have Gabriel but her. Twists, turns and forgotten memories make this journey a race against time. Instant passion, the element of denial and true love makes anything possible.
The plot thickens…Heart of Vesuvius; sequel to Darkest Memory was just contracted! In this tale, we follow Gabriel’s sister, Alexandria (who you meet in Darkest Memory─commonly referred to as Alex). Without doubt, it was interesting writing Heart of Vesuvius. This time two vampires fall in love. He’s horribly arrogant and ancient (think Roman Empire) and she’s afraid of heights amongst other things (never a good thing for a vampire!). These two clash from the start. But as all romance stories tend to go, love will find a way.
