Everyone loves a good origin tale. Cege's started when she was eight years old. She snuck out of bed late one night and into the living room to watch TV. Flipping through stations with the volume turned down low, she came across a rerun of a movie called The Exorcist. She was terrified yet mesmerized.

Cege wasn't unfamiliar with the idea of the battle between good and evil. She attended Catholic school in a small town in rural Wisconsin, and at the time knew the 'age appropriate' stories from the Bible.

I do however believe that writers will find the most diabolical and creative ways to procrastinate actually sitting down to write. I'm guilty of that myself. In the end, the writing doesn't get done unless you sit down and do it, and that's a lot easier to do when I set a regular schedule and plot out a few sentences on what I'm going to write next. Makes it feel easier.(less)

Afterlife OTHER SITESEver since I published Veiled Shadows, the last book in the Shadows trilogy, I’ve had readers ask about what was next. They wanted MORE. That’s really been a resounding theme over the years.


The thing was that, for me, Ellie and David’s story was done. They had overcome their past demons (literally), defeated the bad guys, and were ready to embark on their new beginning. Surely these two charact...

More like a 3.5. Liked the evolution of the story, but felt like some of it got lost in the details of things that were irrelevant to the overall story.

“That’s the other thing. We have no desire to rush our trip. The time away will help Linda clear her head, but I don’t know how long it’ll take for her to feel better and she’ll want to come home. So the answer is indefinitely,” Randall answered. “Indefinitely…I’m just really surprised, Randall. Can I speak to Linda,”
