Together They Can Prevent the Destruction of the World
Variants, humans whose altered DNA turn them into blood ravaging killers, are attacking en masse around the world. Their leader, Travik, is gathering a force from space to kill every last human.
Auden, immortal king of the Anathergians, has the fate of the world in his hands. His hold is slipping as the threats multiply each day.
Then there’s Auden’s Lifemate, Leah, whom he loves above all others. He struggles to do what he can to ensure her safety while also protecting her from herself.
J’ashidah, the Anathergian gathering, is upon them. There Leah will be introduced to thousands of her people and crowned as the Anathergian queen.
But Leah wants nothing more than to use her newfound Anathergian strength, along with her witch powers, to remove the threat of the Variants and their leader. It doesn’t matter that the villain is her father. She’s had enough of his continual harassment and attacks, especially to those she loves. She will do whatever it takes, including lies and deception, to end this threat.
Travik, one of the last living Anathergian royals, wants to take Auden’s place with his daughter at his side. He will destroy everything, including every precious life on this world, to get what he wants, no matter the cost. First, however, he must convince Leah to agree with his way of thinking. And if she doesn’t… Well, he has no problem hurting, maiming, or killing those she cares for.

25 Fun Facts
Sometimes I honestly believe I’m pretty boring, but then I start telling people about some of the things that have happened to me and they’re a bit amazed. So, here are some facts (maybe not all necessarily fun) about me.
- I was in the Navy for ten years as a Hospital Corpsman/Preventive Medicine Technician. For most of that time I was attached to the Marines. I went through Field Medical School when I was 30. Yeah, old for that kind of training. Lol
- I’ve specialized in epidemiology and have worked with many people diagnosed with exotic/dangerous diseases.
- I have a birthmark on one ankle that is a tone darker than my skin tone. The same shape is at the top of my other leg, but is lighter. It’s as if that patch of melanin was taken from my thigh and placed on my ankle. Weird.
- I was born in North Hollywood and brought up in Las Vegas. I guess I like the glitz and glamour. Ha! Not really, though. J
- I can’t wear any jewelry that isn’t real gold or silver. It turns my skin green.
- My characters talk to me and keep me up at night. I try to shut them up, but sometimes they just want to talk and make my mind whirl. Drives me nuts.
- While driving around Vegas, Nico (one of the Anathergian warriors and a playboy) will point a place out to me and tell me what he’s done with a girl (or girls) in that spot. He’ll even give me visuals. Yeah… TMI, Nico. Thanks, but no thanks.
- For my clothes, I prefer to wear black or gray. But my favorite color is green. I don’t use a lot of that color, but I love it for paint or sheets.
- I’m 5’6” (66”) tall, and am the shortest person in my family.
- I have huge calves from being in gymnastics for over five years. While in high school, and a cheerleader, the jocks used to call me Popeye because my calves were larger than the biggest jock in school. *blushes*
- In high school, while auditioning for a lead role in a play, I tripped taking the steps up to the stage. I ended up getting the part because the fall was something the character would probably do.
- I’m part Russian.
- My sons are seven years apart.
- I was a punker while in high school and am still one in my heart.
- I attended the same high school as my grandmother, my step-father, aunt, and brother. The school changed to a magnet school, which my youngest son attended. So, four generations attended the same high school campus.
- My dream car is a Lamborghini.
- I like to drive fast.
- I am not a very patient person.
- My favorite band is Shinedown.
- I love to get in a car and drive across this beautiful country, meet people, and learn about different cultures.
- I dislike the color purple, though I use it on occasion.
- I consider Jared Padalecki and Taylor Kitsch to be the two sexiest men in the world. They both live in Austin, TX.
- I lived in Okinawa, Japan, for over three years and loved it.
- My favorite city is a toss-up between New York City and Paris.
- My favorite song is Boys of Summer by Don Henley.
Well, there you have it. Some facts about me that not many people know. Hope you enjoyed them!
