Three paranormal novellas

Reap the Shadow, Slay the Light

I don’t know what I am, but I’m not human…and neither are the creatures that killed my mom. Running will only carry me so far because there’s a darkness within me, ready to destroy me, and a burning light, begging for escape. It’s the light that screams to my pursuers and works them into a frenzy. Though the darkness might kill me, releasing the light might kill us all…

WarWolf: Half breed

Ema fights to suppress her werewolf emotions and deny her warlock powers. It isn’t easy being a half-breed, but she is determined to slide through life unnoticed by either group. When the warlock leaders team up with humans to force paranormal registration, Ema believes she must choose between her two unwanted worlds. An unexpected companion shows her not all emotions are bad, and power has its benefits.


“Werewolves are real but the legends are wrong…”

It’s the secret Gillian’s father has tried to keep from her and the reason he’s so overprotective. But, he goes too far when he exiles Gillian to a house in the middle of nowhere. Her new landlord, Racer, is more like a cute jailer who has strict orders to keep her safely trapped.

Battle lines between independence and obligation are drawn as Gillian decides just how far she’s willing to go to win back her freedom. And Racer needs to decide what he’s willing to endure to keep her close.


~Character Interviews~

Shadows and Light, gives you three unique YA paranormal romances to swoon over.

Willam in Reap the Shadow, Slay the Light vowed to protect Pheobe from the moment he saw her. He knew the horde that would come for her. Declan in WarWolf: Half-breed knew Ema was perfect for him the moment he saw her. It was amazing he could even see with his beer goggles firmly in place! And, finally, Racer in Moved, reluctantly offered his apartment to Gillian. He regretted that choice until he discovered just how amazing Gillian could be.

This captivating new release has something to please everyone! Not sure if this is your kind of read? Check out these character interviews.

Willam, the hero with a shadowed past from Reap the Shadow, Slay the Light, agreed to speak candidly with the author regarding his thoughts about Pheobe. This interview is spoiler free.

Melissa: You went away to college then moved back to be close to Pheobe. Why?
Willam: I knew what was coming and couldn’t leave her to face it alone.
Melissa: That’s the only reason?
Willam: One of a few.
Melissa: Why were you homeschooled?
Willam: When the people around me started to show signs of aggression, I needed to do something to shield them. Isha, my sister, helped me see what it meant to care like that. It was hard to be around other people. But never Isha…or Pheobe.
Melissa: What was your reaction when you first met Pheobe?
**Willam looks down for a moment**
Willam: Shock. I’d never seen anyone so beautiful, so perfect. She didn’t react to me as if I was a pariah. She made room for me and included me. I knew that first day; she was mine.

WarWolf: Half-breed introduces a new, emotionally enhanced werewolf. This spoiler free interview gives us a little insight into just how enhanced Declan is.

Melissa: When Ema first meets you, you’re in a bar crying. Doesn’t seem very manly…
**Declan frowns at me.**
Declan: I’d just lost my father.
Melissa: Um, no. That was several years ago.
Declan: I had a little too much to drink. The beer made my eyes water.
Melissa: Nice try. Are all werewolves so…sensitive?
Declan: There’s nothing wrong with having emotions or showing them. If you’re sad, what’s wrong with crying? If you can’t vent it, you can’t move forward.
Melissa: All right. What did you think of Ema the first time you saw her?
**Declan grins.**
Declan: Tight.
Melissa: Excuse me?
Declan: You know, emotionally blocked up. She was sitting there so straight and stiff. Barely moving or looking around. No smile or anything. But, man, did she look pretty. There was no way I was going anywhere but to her house.
Melissa: Without giving anything away, what’s your favorite memory of your time traveling together?
Declan: That’s a tough one. There are so many great moments. If I had to choose…bathtub.
Melissa: Is there anything else you’d like to share with the readers?
Declan: Warlock treehouses’ rock!

The author managed to interview the leading man, Racer from Moved, about the circumstances that led up to Gillian’s move. This interview is spoiler free.

Melissa: How did you get talked into renting out the upstairs apartment?
Racer: There wasn’t much of a talk. Larry asked if anyone was living in the apartment upstairs. I said no. He told me someone would be within twenty-four hours.
Melissa: Why wasn’t there a tenant?
Racer: I like living alone. Tenants are disruptive, needy, intrusive…
Melissa: What was your first impression of Gillian?
**Racer gives me a cocky grin**
Racer: Disruptive. Needy. Intrusive.
Melissa: What about now?
Racer: Close to perfect.
Melissa: Close?
Racer: She still thinks she can wander around on her own, and when I don’t give her the space she needs, she threatens to start acting like an inmate again.
Melissa: Some of her stunts were pretty funny.
Racer: You weren’t on the receiving end.
