Hi Colette!

First off - thank you so much! So good to hear you enjoyed Damien and Blaze. Second, yes. There is a sequel in the works. (Bad author, bad, to take so long, I know.) I've had a lot of contractual, business, and writing obligations this past year - we're coming to the end of them now.

The sequel, titled "From the Noblest Motives," takes place a few months after the end of Rarely Pure. While Damien is still front and center, Shudder will have his own story to tell. Thank you for being patient with me - too much scrambling does not a focused writer make.(less)

Hi Andrea!

First of all - thank you! For your support and your kind words. :) This is kind of a busy month - so bear with me while I try to organize release and WIP news in my brain...

End of May, Amber Allure released the first in a new paranormal humor series for me (Offbeat Crimes is the series name) - "Lime Gelatin and Other Monsters," which is about a squad of paranormal misfit cops in Philadelphia.

The second Offbeat Crimes books is due out 6/21, titled "The Pill Bugs of Time."

Earlier this month, Mischief Corner Books released a science fiction short story (not romance) for me titled "The Color of his Crest." (On the more serious side of the house for me.)

On Tuesday, (6/16) Totally Bound releases the second AURA novel, the sequel to Quinn's Gambit, titled "Flax's Pursuit." It's up for pre-order everywhere, but only Totally Bound website customers get it on Tuesday. Everyone else has to wait until 7/14. ;)

I just sent the fourth Brandywine Investigations novel to Amber Allure, titled Books, Bulls, and Bacchanals (that's the story for Dionysus.) Don't have a release date quite yet - probably late summer, early fall would be my guess.

*whew, gasp, pant* Finally? I'm currently working on a new Brimstone story - there will be two new ones this year. The first is a Brimstone prequel, a little Shax and Verin adventure quite a bit before the events of Hell for the Company. Mischief Corner will probably have that first one out later this summer (though it depends on how fast I write) and the second Brimstone will release as part of the Autumn anthology over at MCB.

There. Aren't you sorry you asked? ;)

The true strength of this novel lies in its worldbuilding - and the author does this very well. How things work, how things are laid out, what would keep a society running are all lovingly detailed. I hesitate to call this post-apocalyptic, since tha ...more

“Sometimes the soul goes through a nuclear winter, and hope has to go dormant. It's there, though. Waiting for the right moment to sprout.”
Angel Martinez, Prisoner 374215

“Diego considered while he stroked the thick ruff of fur around Finn’s neck. "Fiction isn’t lying. Everyone knows it’s imaginary. It’s not as if the writer’s being dishonest and misleading the reader."

"Though it’s still not true."

"Well...no, it’s not."

"Honest lying." Finn laid his head on Diego’s thigh. "I like that.”
Angel Martinez, Finn

“i did what heartbroken, lost soldiers have done for centuries. I made my way home to my mother."- Richard Von Schaumburg”
Angel Martinez, A Different Breed
