Voices have whispered to me for most of my life. The voices tell the most fantastic tales. They talk about magic, love, death, car chases, whizzing bullets, fires, laughter, good jokes, and some really bad jokes. These voices have whispered about distant places like Egypt, Peru, and Budapest. They tell me about places that I've never been, and a few places that I've gotten the chance to visit.
In all the decades that I've listened to the voices, I've held to one rule. Trust them and they won't steer me wrong. And so far, they haven't.
I started writing stories when I was twelve. In the long years since those first tales, I've written fantasy, high school romance, historical romance, horror, and fairy tales. When my first book, Nightwalker, was published, I was writing urban fantasy. Even then, I knew I'd never just write about vampires, even though I love them a great deal.
So after I finished with my vampires and warlocks, I wandered into a new genre with Rinda Elliott. Near the end of last year, we launched a brand new series called the Unbreakable Bonds Series. The first book, Shiver, was released in October 2015. It's a male/male contemporary romantic suspense following the adventures of four close friends in Cincinnati.
Here is a description of Shiver:
At the end of April, the second book in the series, Shatter, was released. This book follows the exploits of Lucas's close friend, Snow:
Rinda and I are hard at work on the third book, Torch, which will be out later in 2016. Working on the Unbreakable Bonds series has been a fabulous adventure, but the vampires have started whispering to me again. The good news is that I will be releasing a spin-off from the Dark Days series a little later this summer called Stefan.
Trust the voices. They'll lead you to the most interesting places and introduce you to the most interesting people.
