Good Morning, Sorchia! I’m so happy to be here. As you know, I have a new release, A MAGIC REDEMPTION. But first let me share a few things you may find interesting.
The paranormal realm is my universe.
I’ve written about vampires, witches, demons, angels, shifters, faeries, psychics, well you get the idea since I was able to put pen to paper and make sense of it. I have to say my mother was less that impressed. As a child I had terrible night frights (less in my adult life). It worried my mom so badly that she took me to the doctor. His diagnoses, an over active imagination and I’d grow out of it.Well, I didn’t. Do I believe these things exist? Depending on the day, I’d say there is more in the world than most people are comfortable believing.
Point in fact. Over twenty years ago, I had this horrible nightmare in great detail that a plane crashed in an open field south of my city. It felt so real, I was distraught but anyone I told chalked it upto night frights and over active imagination. A few days later United Airlines Flight crashed into an open field (park) south of my city killing everyone on board.
A friend of ours used to pilot small aircraft and invited my husband to go with him on a short trip. I admit that small planes scare me because I had a friend die in a crash in eastern Colorado years ago. I had such a terrible feeling of foreboding that I insisted my husband not go. At the time, to say he was very unhappy with me was an understatement. Ultimately,he didn’t go. Shortly after midnight the friend’s wife called and said his plane had crashed, thank God he sustained only minor injuries.
My husband has never doubted my intuition again.
I thank my lucky stars this type of thing doesn’t happen often, but when it does…
Routinely, I smell my mother’s perfume in my house though she’s been gone over 20 years. As a child I had the same experience (in my home) with my grandmother’s perfume long after her death. I guess they both felt I needed watching even from the hereafter.
When I visited the Imperial Hotel in Cripple Creek,CO, lets just say, it’s haunted. You can read all about it here These are a few experiences I’ve had and the list goes on. I guess if the paranormal universe knows you believe—things happen to you that don’t to the average individual.
How about you, what do you believe?
These days the voices I hear in my head, I put down on paper so others can leave their ordinary world behind… be swept away into a magical romantic fantasy with a touch of mystery and suspense.
PARANORMAL ROMANCE: A MAGIC REDEMPTION
Synn, a demon, carries extraordinary magic and power, but there is more within her than she dreams. Kidnapped as a child, her captors murdered her family and forced her into training as a warrior assassin. When an assignment goes horribly wrong, she finds herself at the mercy of the friends and family of her intended target. Offering valuable information in exchange for protection, she gains her freedom, but it is not without its challenges.
Gavin Shaughnessy is the publican at his family’s Irish pub. He is certain Synn is meant to be his and isn’t bothered by her past. He must find a way to convince her, their future together is stronger than the dark memories that haunt her dreams.
When her past comes calling for revenge, will their love survive the raging inferno she brings down upon them? Or will the searing path of destruction destroy all they hold dear?
An Exclusive Excerpt from A MAGIC REDEMPTION
Darkness engulfed her. The voices in her head returned calling her a traitor suggesting retribution would be sweet and exacted soon. She fought against the words and covered her ears. As suddenly as the booming words came, it was silent. The dream shifted to a dank room, without windows, or light, and a darkness she could almost feel. Scraping sounds against a large wooden plank door grated on her nerves.
Magic failed her leaving her drained and unresponsive. She curled up in a fetal position. Baltizar’s voice whispered again in her mind. “I still control you. They’re all going to die a horrible death at my hands. You will get to watch. Just like when you failed to save your family.”
His wicked laugh echoed though her mind and faded. A warm liquid flowed over her hands. She looked down. They were covered in blood. Bodies were strewn over what looked like the dirt floor of a cave. Screaming, she awoke soaked with sweat, head pounding and blood trickled from her palms where her finger nails had sliced through the skin.
A loud bark came from the foot of her bed. She stumbled out of bed and rushed to Storm’s crate, knelt, and yanked open the door. A warm, fur ball bounded into her lap, the dog covered her face with kisses. She sat on the floor, tears streaming down her face dripping on the soft fur she buried her face in.
Never allowed to cry, she allowed the flood gates open, and cried for her family, mistakes made, decisions forced upon her, and wished she’d died in the battle with Baltizar. She wouldn’t be responsible for the deaths of her new friends, Gavin and his family, or Storm.
