Going Back To Find You

Because even a vampire deserves a second chance. 

When Jason Cook boarded the train to San Francisco, he didn't plan on coming back. He never really thought he'd see Nebraska or Lizbeth Petersen ever again. But when an unexpected turn of events threatens the woman he'd been forced to leave behind, he has no choice but to go back and try to make things right. 

Warning: This is not a drill. Vampires are invading your favorite, small Nebraska town this Halloween. Does this mean Type-O flavored Booze will soon be the new rage in Sapphire Falls? Hopefully, it won't come to that. But you never can tell... 

***This story was originally released as part of the Sapphire Falls Kindle World.***

Light Up the Night

Her love will light up his night. If they can both survive that long. 

Heather is having the worst Christmas ever! Or, at least, the worst Christmas since she was forced to become a vampire. Her sire's distracted, her nestmates have forgotten her, weirdos have taken over the lair. The only bright spot in her life right now is Drew--who didn't even used to like her! She knows he's fond of her now, but that's not good enough. She wants more. She wants everything. She wants him. And she's not giving up. 

Drew Geiger gave up on love a long time ago. Such tender emotions have no place in a vampire's heart. But, somehow, the girl he once described as a "feral kitten" has got her claws in him, and she's not letting go. That would be fine, if only someone didn't want her dead--and if her sire didn't recall that it was Drew who once suggested that maybe she'd be better off that way.

Can't Fight the Moonlight

The Sierra Nevada foothills have been vampire Josiah Lodge’s hunting grounds for centuries. Alone since a lover’s betrayal cost him his nest, the former trapper-turned-wild-crafter has given up on ever again finding love or acceptance. If he didn’t have to eat, he’d never venture out of his woods again. But needs must.

When Coldpelt (Cole) Moonwalker’s true shifter nature asserted itself, he was judged an abomination and cast out of his pack. Without a territory to call his own, he’s constantly on the move—which is how he ends up basically in Josh’s backyard. While Cole dreams of someday finding a place where he can belong, he knows that place can never be with the scarred and surly vampire who undoubtedly has the blood of Cole’s people on his hands.

Will the attraction they feel for one another allow these natural enemies to overcome their sense of mutual distrust? Is enemies with benefits even a thing?  Find out when this new series debuts!

Chasing Daylight

This story takes place at the same time as Light Up the Night, but the focus is on Jason and Liz (Going Back to Find You) and their introduction to the BitterRidge Werewolf Pack.


Liz and Jason are star-crossed lovers who got a second chance at love. But the years apart have changed them.  When their friend, Brook, is kidnapped by werewolves the two must work together as a team in order to help save her. 


As the BiitterRidge pack's alpha, Madclaws (Klaus) Winterborn has his hands full when a botched and unauthorized "rescue and recovery" mission results in a potentially violent confrontation with some very angry vampires and their fae ally. 

Possibly releasing this December.


Christmas Makes Me Cry

Hawk's been in love with Heather for a long time. Now she's found someone else and he's having a blue Christmas.  But perhaps a New Year's Eve kiss will change all of that?

Tentative release date for this one is December 2024

Only Happy When it Rains

 This will be Hawk's HEA, although the time frame is a little vague right now. 


More details coming soon...and by soon I mean some time in the future, whenever I figure it out.

Vampire Wisdom

Random thoughts about what it means to be vampire, culled from the pages of the Children of Night books. 

This is very much a work in progress, rather than the definitive document I intend it to be. I'll be adding to these from time to time.  But, for now: You can access it HERE.

Blame it on the Voodoo

What’s a little black magic among friends?

Vampire Rene Boudreaux is more than a little annoyed. It seems sexy voodoo queen Zirondelle Doucette has got him under her spell. Can Zee convince Rene that the only real magic is love? Or will he continue to blame it on the voodoo?

Please note, this story is NOT connected in any way with the Children of Night series. At t the moment, it's a standalone, but I might expand it into its own series in the future.

The Zillionaire Vampire Cowboy's

Secret Werewolf Babies

Theirs was a love that nature never intended. Bigger than Texas. Hotter than Hades. Weirder than…a lot of other things you might have read about up until now.

Self-made zillionaire Rock Fangsworthy is your typical Texas cowboy…well, sort of. Typical in that the only thing this lethally sexy lady-charmer with the hair trigger temper loves more than his horse is his ranch, The Double Fang. Or maybe his boots. Less typical in the fact he's also a four hundred year old vampire with a shocking secret—he can't stand the sight of blood.

Buffi Van Pelt is just your average girl-next-door winery owner…or is she? The spunky single mom to twin boys also happens to be a winsome werewolf with secrets and troubles of her own. The winery that the gutsy good-girl recently inherited from her grandmother is on the verge of ruin. If Buffi can't find a use for the mysteriously tainted wine before time and her pantry's limited supply of red meat runs out, she and her pups will be left homeless, destitute and very, very hungry. Worse yet, her baby-daddy is the same hunky, bad-boy vampire rancher who's out to steal The Best Little Winery in Bloodsuck from under her paws.

Once upon a time their passion flamed hotter'n a summer's night in Dallas with three Cheerleaders and a side of habanero sauce. Tonight, love's lightning might just strike them twice…but only if the wine don't kill them first. 

***YES, it's a PARODY. Don't say you haven't been warned!***
