I’ve finally been given the green light to announce a project that I’m so incredibly and unbelievably excited about – My publisher (Ace Books/Penguin) has graciously invited me to be one of four authors for their next urban fantasy anthology — NIGHT SHIFT. That’s exciting enough by itself, but what’s really thrilling for me are [...]

The Grendel Affair — Book 1 of The SPI Files — Available now!
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.
Here are two photos taken from our back deck of the snow we had . . . jeez, it was almost two weeks ago. I seem to be apologizing a lot for not posting, and I’m doing it again. I’m six weeks out from my [...]
Hey ya’ll! My apologies as I fully intended to post last last week on why reading while writing a book is critical — at least for me. That didn’t happen because my laptop got a *truly nasty* virus that took out most of my operating system (I swear I use protection and don’t have intimate [...]
There are five deer (that I can see) grazing beside the pecan tree closest to the house. I’d post a pic, but I can’t get one without scaring away the Ladies Who Lunch. There are usually seven of them (I wonder if the other two decided to sleep in), which I’ve dubbed “The Clique.” We’ve [...]
