An author, musician, counseling psychologist, and animal rights activist, Dariel writes interracial/multicultural paranormal romance and dark urban fantasy featuring shifters, Nephilim, angels, and reluctant demons, all filled with action, alpha heroes, and strong heroines. As a child, she could always be found curled up with her dogs, cats, and a good book, even if the book was a dictionary or encyclopedia. Things have not changed much.

Dariel is a classically trained soprano, and plays more than 11 musical instruments. She also completed coursework and passed comprehensives for a Ph.D. in Instructional Design (ABD), tutors writing, algebra, and statistics, and readily admits to being a Netflix paranormal and action series binge-watcher.

With Love, Sammy

 


“Love is as love does.” My mom always told me that. Time and experience have a way of clarifying the significance and accuracy of those words. I’d like to tell you a story about love and the impact Sammy’s love has made in my life. In order for you to understand my level of gratitude, I need to tell you about my journey and the ordeal from which he rescued me.
