So far two books are planned (Colorless and Silver) as well as a prequel (Hazel) --though the prequel may only be available to my newsletter subscribers (for free). Hazel definitely will be available to them, but I'm still on the fence about whether or not I'm going to fully publish the prequel to online retailers. (less)

“Love didn't seem like something that could be organized or contained; it should be messy and emotional, like exploding and imploding with someone at the exact same time.”
Rita Stradling, Ensnared

“I don’t agree. The morning fog makes the graveyard beautiful, soft and sad as a voice humming a lullaby, but I don’t tell her what I think. She’d call me a weirdo.
- Raven Smith”
Rita Stradling, The Deception Dance

“Vintage. That was what the used car sales automaton had called the little white car. Three hours later, she learned that vintage meant death trap.”
Rita Stradling, Ensnared

Ilona Andrews, On the Edge

“This moment contains all moments.”
C.S. Lewis

“Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things.”
George Carlin

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Dr. Seuss
