Oh Barry, you and me were on the same page about him! I thought the same also and I am so curious to see what role he will play this season now. Tara made me cry, omg, when she was shoot...tears were falling. BTW I am kinda annoyed at Eric and Bill...though I will never get tired of seeing Eric naked. Now only one week to wait until I know what happens next :D

65690 Ivy is fast becoming a new favourite of mine. She is like a dark fantasy, aiming to right the wrongs of the world. I love watching her evolve, she was weak, lost and ruled by the idea of love but once reborn she becomes, sisnter, deadly and no longer weak. She is my idea of what would happen if you mixed Anita blake and Dexter into one. I am thinking as the story grows she will become my fave overall :D

65690 This is my serial killer/horror/paranormal WIP. I am enjoying tapping into the dark side! Be warned it is still in rough draft mode, so I expect there may be a few mistakes :)

I had made my bargain with the shadow man only a few months ago and now I had to pay. He wanted the souls of those condemned and tonight I would give him my second. The stench of earth bound monsters plagued me, driving me insane sometimes. A rancid smell similar to that of rotting flesh flooded my senses on the streets of where I lived. Never could I have imagined the monsters that walked our streets, feeding on the innocent as we ignored them. I was resurrected with a mission, one born out of my need for vengeance and hatred.

It had been hard at first; the thought of taking another humans life but these creatures that I killed weren’t human, they weren’t even worthy of being creatures they were all monsters. Things so evil, that one would deem them a poison to society. They were the monsters that abused those lesser them, feeding on the fear and pain they created. I knew this because I used to be a victim, right up until I died but now that I am back, I am going to make sure nothing like this ever happens again. No more will I stand in the shadows and watch as monsters prey on others. Tonight I would take my first soul since my boyfriends. The monster looked like any normal well-to-do man in his mid-thirties, his hair just beginning to thin on top, well-groomed, enjoyed living above his means. I had watched this Casanova work his game over and over again these last few month. Always it was the same; he would find the shy, sweet, insecure girl who often sat alone at the back of the bar. Then he would offer to buy her drink, building up her ego before asking her to go home with him. There he would lure her in, praising her asking her to come back even though no one was to know what was going on. On the fifth ‘date’ he would strike, the monster lurking within emerged, a rage so intense that the girl fate was sealed from the moment she entered the house. I never knew what really happened inside, I only ever saw the remains or what was left of them once he disposed of them. It was disgusting; only bones and some liquid soupy mess was left of them. I cried over the remains of the first girl. Watching as her friends searched in vain. There was nothing the authorities would find that would link her remains to that monster.

I hated what he was doing. Rage simmered just underneath the surface of my skin, as I formulated my act of revenge. I wanted to hurt him, peel away his flesh with my own hands. I wanted to see the look of horror upon his face once he realized that things were not going to end slowly for him. Most of all I wanted to give those girls justice and peace. Hell, maybe deep down, I also wanted that for myself.

As I watched him, the monster prowling for his next prey, ignorant sheep moving around, dancing, waiting for their turn to be slaughtered, there was a small little smile that crept up onto my lips. Tonight he would know the pain that he had caused. I was fond of the sheep but no longer one myself. It was a weird sensation, being reborn as they say. To live among humans though after a little while they stopped becoming human. How many times in those first few days, where I tried to help, to show them the truth and they didn’t listen. I had warned his victims, everyone but none of them listen to me. Not one of the girls every thought to free themselves from his spell.

It didn’t anger me, I had been like that, a sheep slowly being lead to my own slaughter. Somewhere I had known it was wrong, dangerous and yet I stayed, lured by the false promise of love. Lured by the feeling that I belonged to someone. It was a pathetic existence to live.

My Profile: Click Here

NAME: My name is Rebecca Nolan

AGE: I am almost 30 but if anyone asks I tend to round up…(weird I know lol)

LOCATION: I live right now in Brisbane, Australia but my husband is in the military so we move heaps; about once every 3-4 years.

SECTIONS MODERATING: I am a little all over the place, I do interviews with Lisa and I try to think of cool challenges for the group as well as finding interesting topics to talk about. Honestly I couldn’t do half of it if it wasn’t for the other moderators! Also if you need me you can email me at


OCCUPATION: I have been blessed enough to make writing my living and I am currently an Author at Firefly and Wisp.

INTERESTS: I love to read and aim to smash out a book a day but during epic writing times that isn’t always possible. I love to write! I have 4 manuscripts on the go atm and since I began writing as a career I have completed 7 manuscripts. I get so excited about my writing that I send all my family nuts going on about it. For instance I am working on a paranormal serial killer WIP and I am just crazy about it. Think Dexter cross Anita Blake and that is what I feel I am working on hehe. Ok, enough about that…I also am an avid motocross fan and love fmx also. I am not crazy about TV and if watching a program I tend to fast forward all the boring parts, only one show has skipped the fast forward mode and that is True Blood.

FAVORITE GENRES: I love to read paranormal and Horror which is why I started the group lol. I also enjoy historical stories like Pillars of the Earth. Romance is ok but it has to have a good story line. I am not fond of chick lit like Danielle steele etc.

FAVORITE AUTHORS: Laurell k Hamilton, Rachelle Mead, Gena Showalter, Sara Bennett, Steven King, Dean Koontz, Richard Matheson, J R Ward, Christopher Pike and many more.

CURRENTLY READING: I am currently reading Kiss the Dead by Laurell k Hamilton :D

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: I have three amazing kids and one pretty awesome hubby. I always aim to be honest where my writing is concerned. Sharing experiences can be good for the soul. It has taken me 10 years to figure out what I would like to do with my life and now I finally feel like I am on the right track.

The amazing people I have met over the last year and a half makes me feel blessed and understand just how lucky I am. This is like living a dream sometimes. My first full length novel will be coming out near the end of this year and that is just crazy exciting, lol.

Ok, I believe in Ghost! Yep, I do and I hate going into haunted places (freaks me out). I have some really weird quirks like I hate wearing enclosed shoes but give me a pair of boots and I am in heaven. I must eat colored candy in order of color starting with the color there is most of. In shopping centers and other high building I can’t walk near railings in case I fall over them…yet put me in plane and I can jump out…yep, as I said I have crazy quirks haha…please keep teasing to a minimum :P.

I am always up of a chat though sometimes my computer plays up and I miss things…so if you have message me please let me know if I haven’t replied to something. Also I have quiet times where I need to work on getting my writing finished, so if I am missing don’t worry I will be back hehe :D

I know what you mean L.M. I have an adverse reaction to the word suckling...ugh. It does nothing for me when they talk about wanted to suckle or having a guy suckling at her breast...maybe having 3 kids has killed it for me lol, but i just don't find it sexy.

I am writing now, three is a romance (keeping my publisher happy hehe) the other is book 2 of my first series, book one is due out end of the year and lastly is the short story for our group anthology! i am so excited. Now if all i could do was focus more haha. I wish I could share some of the stuff from book two but it would spoil book one. Right from the prologue there are hints as to what happened so i have to keep it all in...argh!
