Demon Trappers Book 3
Riley Blackthorne’s tears were no more. She’d cried herself dry, yet she still lingered in the arms of a dead man. If given the chance, she would remain in her father’s arms for the rest of her life.
When she looked up, sad brown eyes gazed back. Master Trapper Paul Blackthorne was a reanimated corpse now, summoned from his grave by none other than the Prince of Hell. Like the day he’d been buried, he wore his best suit and favorite red tie, the one she’d given him as a Christmas present.
FORGIVEN's title has not changed but the cover sure has. Here we start to see the defiant Riley, the one who Hell will regret messing with. So much happens in this book, so much that changes the course of her life. This is where Riley begins to grow into her own skin, when she realizes who she is, and what she wants in life. And lord help anyone who gets in her way. :-)
Demon Trappers Book 2
Feeling a tickle in his throat, Denver Beck coughed deeply in an attempt to purge the stale smoke from his lungs. It did little good. In the distance, firefighters moved across the Tabernacle’s rubble, working on the hot spots and searching for charred bodies in the mounds of broken bricks and burnt wood.
I should have died last night. In the past it wouldn’t have mattered, but now it did. It was his fear for Riley that had driven him out of the smoke and flames.

The Grounds Zero Coffee Shop made the most amazing hot chocolate in Atlanta, maybe even the whole world. It appeared Riley Blackthorne would have to wade through Armageddon to get it.
“The End Is Near!” a man called out to a passerby. He stood at the shop’s entrance holding a homemade cardboard sign that proclaimed the same. Instead of wearing a tattered robe like some biblical prophet, he was in chinos and a red shirt.
“You’ve got to prepare, missy,” he said and shoved a pamphlet toward Riley with considerable zeal. The tract looked remarkably like the one she had in her jacket pocket. Like the one the angel had given her right before she’d agreed to work for Heaven to save her boyfriend’s life.
“The End Is Near!” the man shouted again.
“Is there still time for hot chocolate?” she asked.
The guy blinked. “Ah, maybe; I don’t know.”
“Oh, good,” she said. “I’d hate to take on Hell without fueling up.”
FORBIDDEN, Book #2 in the Demon Trappers series (formerly entitled SOUL THIEF) now has a new cover. For those who’ve read the series, this is Ori, and I’ll not say anything more as to avoid any spoilers. (Please do the same if you comment.)
Demon Trappers Book 1
Forced to wait outside the library, Denver Beck gave a lengthy sigh as he ran a hand through his short blond hair. His mentor’s kid had just topped the list for Biggest Apprentice Screwup. That upset him not only for the ten kinds of grief she’d get from the Trappers Guild, but the fact that that had always been his honor. Who’d have thought she could outdo his nightmare capture of a Gastro-Fiend in a rush hour MARTA station? A disaster that had required not only the fire department but a HAZMAT team.
“But somehow ya did it, girl,” Beck mumbled in his smooth Georgia drawl. He shook his head in dismay. “Damn, there’s gonna be hell to pay for this.”

Riley Blackthorne rolled her eyes.
“Libraries and demons,” she muttered. “What is the attraction?” At the sound of her voice the fiend hissed from its perch on top of the book stack. Then it flipped her off.
The librarian chuckled at its antics. “It’s been doing that ever since we found it.”
DEMON TRAPPERS BOOK #1
As I mentioned in an earlier post, the rights to my first four Demon Trappers books were returned to me last February from St. Martin’s Griffin (New York). After months of work it's time to share the covers and sample chapters as these books move closer to (re)publication on Monday, November 15th.
I've been very quiet on this blog because lots of good things are happening. And with all good things, there's also frustrations, but that's life. So what's new? Let's dig in and see.
My dear friend Jean Marie Ward interviewed me for Con-Tinual (The Con That Never Ends). We talk about my new Demon Trappers project (LOST SOULS), about living in Europe and what's happening with the (re)launch of the first four Demon Trappers' books. Get first crack at seeing the amazing cover for LOST SOULS plus pictures of Portugal.
