So, I write books. The Anna Dressed in Blood duo is horror, The Goddess War trilogy is mythology, and Sleepwalk Society is contemporary, because the world don't move to the beat of just one drum. What might be right for you, may not be right for some. Love to read, too. Fiction, philosophy, good books, bad books, because you take the good you take the bad you take them both and there you have a stack of books and stuff. I mean, you've got to be adventurous. There's more to life that what you're living, so take a chance and face the wind.

There's more coming soon like Scary Out There and THREE DARK CROWNS so don't waste another minute on your cryin. We're nowhere near the end.

Yes! Spend time on your query letter. Test it out on folks. Ask them, “if this was on the flap of a book jacket would it make you want to read the book?”

Zeynep Ahhh thank you Kendare!
Both of accepting my request and writing such a spectacular book. I saw it on the shelves in K-Mart awhile ago and I picked it up but I shrugged it off, but I kept getting drawn to it! Now I'm absolutely in love with Anna and Cas, even ghosts have boyfriends, jeez. I would really love a longer installment of Anna's story, two books just isn't enough, as would everyone else.

I absolutely love your books, thank you!
