Thanks to Webmasters Todd & Elyse, my new website design is up, live, and running! What do you think? Sorry for no snippet yesterday, but I had a house full of contractors working on my kitchen. I still don’t have a stove/oven, but fortunately I’m the Master of the Crockpot. Today, I’ll be making chili. The previous [...]

The Grendel Affair — Book 1 of The SPI Files — Coming December 31, 2013
Vampires, ghouls, and CIA agents? Just another day at the office.
We’re Supernatural Protection & Investigations, known as SPI. Things that go bump in the night, the monsters you thought didn’t exist? We battle them and keep you safe. But some supernatural baddies are just too big to contain, even for us.
When I moved to New York to become a world famous journalist, I never imagined that snagging a job at a seedy tabloid would change my career path from trashy reporter to undercover agent. I’m Makenna Fraser, a Seer for SPI. I can see through any disguise, shield, or spell that a paranormal pest can come up with. I track down creatures and my partner, Ian Byrne, takes them down.
Our cases are generally pretty routine, but a sickle-wielding serial killer has been prowling the city’s subway tunnels. And the murderer’s not human. The fiend in question, a descendant of Grendel—yes, that Grendel—shares his ancestor’s hatred of parties, revelry, and drunkards. And with New Year’s Eve in Times Square only two days away, we need to bag him quickly. Because if we don’t find him—and the organization behind him—by midnight, our secret’s out and everyone’s time is up.
Today I’m over at Sabina’s Adventures in Reading answering all kinds of questions about The SPI Files (the new urban fantasy series name) and The Grendel Affair (the first book in the series). Only about three more weeks until December 31, and you can cuddle Grendel in your own little hands. Hmm, come to think [...]
My publisher and I are setting up a new Facebook page for me that’ll be the place to go for official news, etc. about my books. Rest assured, you can still get news here, but there’ll be other features available on the Facebook page. For those of you who cruise around on Facebook, it’d be [...]
We’re in the house. Finally. We still have things under construction. For example, we don’t have the fenced-in greyhound run, so we’re having to walk ALL the dogs on a leash whenever they want to go outside to potty. Greyhounds can’t ever be off lead or outside of a fenced area. They can spot “interesting [...]
