The First Wolf

I'm a sucker for a good story behind an actual myth and this novella is based after the story of the first wolves that were made. Keme and Matchitehew were, according to The Fox Tribe, the first ever shape shifters. They were made and not bitten. There is no talk of what Keme had done with his powers. The myth only talks about Matchitehew and how he was the one that made other werewolves after they were both banished from the tribe. I decided to look into this myth from Keme's perspective. I wanted to know what made him tick, what kind of man he might have been. And Forever Cherished came to be.

Forever Friends

Romance

Have you ever dreamed about finding your soul mate? Do you think you'd recognize him as, The One, the instant that you met? Skye thought that Raine was her dream come true when she finally fell in love with him, but her dreams soon became nightmares when Alec, King of the Vlad Vampire Clan, wanted them and every other gypsy witch of Kersh descent, dead. She had to find a way to stop Alec, end the war between clans, fight against the werewolves who turned her best friend Morgan, and keep Raine, her Forever Friend, by her side.

Intermixing Real Folklore

One of the things I like the most about writing paranormal is intermixing real folklore and fables into the book. In this excerpt you hear about a black ghost dog walking about a trail in Connecticut. The dog fable is quite real and I've actually seen it once myself on the that trail! My reaction to the poor thing was much like Morgan's. Oh, and by the way, I haven't had any good luck from that chance meeting yet. ;)

Raine's Birth

Raine's character was the first one I came up with for this series some 20 years ago and this tiny excerpt is what started the process. Funny thing is it's really a paraphrase from a conversation I had with someone once! My mind started to race with the "what ifs" that many of us writers think about when they play with a book idea. The first one that came to mind was about past lives and how a good romance should have a love transcends throughout the ages. And that's how Raine's character was born.

Alec's Hell

In Alec's Hell, you feel the anguish he feels as a vampire. Sired by Lilith, he was one of the most powerful vampires ever created. But he could not grant his lover immortality because a witch cast a spell upon him.

Characters Get Insomnia Too

I always thought of Raine as a pretty special character. Any character that can stalk you for a little over 20 years has to be awesome in some way-- right? Once I wrote "Forever Friends", however, I thought that Raine would get some sleep for a bit. I did not see myself writing about him and Skye for a long while because I was busy with Alec and Lilith from the series. But Raine just did not want to sleep and he kept pestering me. Making it very clear at around 2:30 AM, that we'd battle insomnia for many nights thinking about these lines. It was not until about a pot of coffee, and some playing around with the excerpt that I found the story within the story. After about a year, "Forever Tied" was written and was just released November 22, 2015.

On my visit to Salem

The family and I went to visit Salem this year during our Summer vacation because it's been a place near and dear to our hearts. This year I felt especially moved and thought I should write a story about a woman being accused in 1692. It started out as an innocent idea and expanded after I found out gruesome true tales about some of the victims during the trials. My trip to Salem was well worth it because even though this story is fiction, it's rooted with some rich details of factual history.

My Thoughts on Mother's Day

To all the women out there who are struggling, I think of you today and every day. I hope you can all lead a somewhat normal life despite having Fibromyalgia.

Fibro Moms are Awesome

One of the things that bothered me the most before I had Olivia was the negative outlook cast on a Fibro Mom. The thoughts were that pregnancy, breast feeding, and child rearing would be too hard on a mother who has chronic pain. I thought differently, of course. I think anyone with Fibro can lead a happy and normal life, they just have to go about it a little differently. This excerpt is what started the book Fibromyalgia and Pregnancy.

Forever Bound

Romance

Alec was everything Lilith imagined a lover could be. He was caring, sensual, and attentive to every one of her needs. She wanted and needed him badly to break the hold Jade Emperor had over her. But could this bond last an eternity with Cheng-Huang's sentence of damnation on them both? Would the bond withstand the werewolves' rebellion that was fast approaching? And could this bond transcend through time as his dead heart learns to beat for Obsidian? It was a chance Lilith would have to take in order to defeat the werewolves who planned to give rise to Demetrese, ruler of the demon Underworld, during the rarest of planetary alignments in the Ming Dynasty.

Playing with Your Food

It's hard to have feelings for your food. Once you do, you can't seem to stomach it. This excerpt is where Lilith saw just how special Alec was and how much of a common connection she shared with him.

Refined

Lilith has been quite the trip! I think I've had the most fun with her while writing this prequel to Forever Friends because she isn't just a sexual being, nor is she overly snooty as many myths and legends portray her. In my book Lilith has depth and even shows a bit of a conscious! Forever Bound isn't published yet, but I thought I'd give you a little taste of what is to come.

Why I'm Passionate About Intimacy

I became passionate about writing the Fibro and Sex book because I was overwhelmed with awkward emotions when it came to intimacy after being diagnosed myself. And instead of feeling bad about what I could no longer do, I thought this could be a great opportunity for me to explore my sexuality all over again without actually being a teen. It was a great experience and I wanted to help others find their own sexual revolution despite having fibromyalgia. It is for this reason that I wrote the book.
