The Boys of Transcend Share A Little Too Much...

Here we are at Day 2 of my special week of reveals. Today I'm introducing the boys of Transcend - Ien, James, Erik and Mr. John Montgomery. I asked each one of these characters to share one thing today - a fantasy or secret wish. Now, I will admit, I had to edit their answers a bit, redacting a few things. These guys were just too willing to reveal far too much about the story. Darn blabbermouths! But, hopefully what I left will work:

John Montgomery - He is Ien and Erik's father, and head of one of the most prestigious families in 19th century New York. Determined to maintain his family's status, Mr. Montgomery will do anything - and I mean ANYTHING - to keep the reputations of his boys above repute. When I asked him to share a fantasy, a wish, he chuckled and, well, here was the conversation:
John - "We don't indulge in fantasy in our family."
Me - "But if you did-"
John - "We don't."
Me - "But-"
John - "Okay, fine. If I did indulge in such nonsense, I guess I would wish for a different *************" {I had to redact the rest - it was filled with spoilers!}
Erik Montgomery - Erik is the oldest son to John, and Ien's brother. He was the heir to the family fortune, the family business. Until... {Yep, not spilling that much...}
Erik's answer to the question of his secret wish or fantasy was simple:
I just want to live. Really live. And....{Dang these guys really can't keep secrets}
James Thoburn III - James is Ien's best friend and instigator of all rebellious activities. Born to another prestigious New York family, James understands the pressures of being born into the New York elite. His fantasy, I'm sure you can guess:
I want to live without expectations and rules for as long as I can. And drag Ien along for the ride whenever possible!
Ien Montgomery - Ien is the focus of the book. Second born, he is allowed to persue his passions without the expectations of the family. At least, he was...
Ien's fantasy:
I just want to make music. Beautiful music. With Kiera. Forever. Cliche I know, but it is my only wish. And I will do anything to make it come true! 

So there you have it - the boys of Transcend. Be sure to come back tomorrow to meet the girls, and hear about their fantasies and secret wishes.

  10. Love that you named Ien's brother Erik. I loved Erik in the original Phantom. I can't wait to see your modern twist on it!

    1. Thanks! I reread Leroux's Phantom several times when researching the book. The story is historical, but Ien and Erik have a history that is a definite departure from the original story - a fresh take on a familiar tale. Hopefully readers will like it

It's Release Day!

Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:

Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…

Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
