Here’s a sneak peak at the cover:


When Kara, a green eyed and red haired college vixen, runs into a handsome but mysterious man little did she know both love and chaos would ensue in the seedy under belly of New Orleans City streets. She finds herself and her group of college friends in a dangerous battle with an ancient Egyptian demon goddess named Sekhmet who has possessed Kara’s new Louisiana born beau, Chance. As the feline demon begins to dwindle their group down one person at a time, feeding on their souls, a battle ensues that could mean life and death for all of them. Love may not be enough to conquer all in this epic battle of demon versus mortal.

Meanwhile, Kara’s new boyfriend, Chance with his soft Southern Creole drawl and dual colored eyes, finds himself embroiled with passion for the young college beauty while the demon traps him deeper into her web of desire to feed. As their love grows for each other, Chance’s secret life becomes a force to reckon with when the demon starts destroying those around him out of a jealous rage. When his darker half rips apart Kara’s friends it forces him to face the truth of his dual life in order to save the ones he loves and cares about. With their help Chance takes his shot in the dark to rid himself of the demon that has been riding on the cowboy’s back even if that means he must sacrifice his own life and the love of his woman.


NaNoWriMo Rebel


I’m a rebel. No doubt about it. Definitely a rebel. Thank you to Pax for the awesome NaNo Rebel stamp. It was nice of Pax to take the time to make this cool little graphic.

What is a NaNo Rebel? Well, according to the Rebel forum we are people who don’t quite conform to the standard rules of NaNoWriMo. They don’t call it cheating, it isn’t. There are those of us that just don’t fit the definition of what the rules are – such as those of us who write non-fiction, e-books self helps or finish off an old NaNo project in the current NaNo competition (like me). I started in 2009 and life just took me over, being a mom and wife with a full plate I couldn’t even get past the first week of NaNoWriMo.

This bothered me, an unfinished project. I’m never one to leave something..unfinished. I can’t, I’m a perfectionist that way. I can’t help it and I need to finish what I started two years ago. NaNoWriMo is for everyone and the environment of the competition is what some of us more established authors need to kick us in the pants or push us over the edge to finish a current project.

Some of us rebels don’t validate, some of us do. It’s up to the individual according to the NaNo Rebel forum and team. I plan on validating because I plan on writing more than 50,000 words if I can manage it. So, are you a NaNo Rebel?



These Chains

I am currently working on a novel called These Chains (tentative title).


These Chains is the story of a young man recounting his troubled childhood and the abusive nature of a spiteful step father. The story touches on ethnic issues, child abuse and the repercussions that enfold. From his childhood to his young adult addictions as an alcoholic and drug addict to suicide attempts and the recovery afterward the story takes a journey into the seedy underbelly of the ripple effect of child abuse and racism from the first person point of view.

You can read what has been written on my Writing.com profile. So far it seems to be that it is received well enough. You can access the story so far from here : These Chains

Of The Heart

You may have recently seen that I have two links on my side bar. One is from a community called WomenHeart and the other is a lovely blog from Carolyn, a heart attack survivor, called My Heart Sisters. I’ve recently been enduring issues that are very disturbingly scary. Worse than the horror fiction I write.

We like to scare ourselves with horror movies, horror stories and Halloween. The real horror is that woman are *NOT* aware of the risks to their heart health. Women are not aware that our symptoms of heart attack can be very different from those depicted in our favorite horror stories, movies and in general different from the male heart attack symptoms.

This post goes out to all the women who have survived, died and are dying out there of cardiac disease. This blog post goes out to my fellow women who need to be aware of what the risks are for us when it comes to heart attacks, heart disease and the symptoms. That indigestion that doesn’t go away even with medication – don’t ignore it. That sweaty dread filled 1 AM wake up three mornings in a row when you know you aren’t going through menopause, don’t ignore it. Don’t ignore the shortness of breath, the pressure in your chest, face or neck, don’t ignore that sudden sharp pain in between the shoulder blades or racing down the inside of either arm or the numb finger tips. Don’t ignore what your body is trying to tell you. Don’t ignore it for 9 months like I did. JUST DON’T DO IT.

Women my age are 7 times more likely to be misdiagnosed during a major cardiac event, or even… DISMISSED. Women in general are more than likely to be ignored, dismissed or misdiagnosed for a major cardiac event, even during one. Women are more likely not to show positives in testing like blood pressure, EKG or any sign of a cardiac disease despite very fatally potentially having one.

Don’t give up either, get that second opinion. Take an advocate with you if you need to, take documentation from the mayo clinic or the Heart Foundation or any information you can to discuss with your doctor or E.R. attendant. The one thing you should never do is *DON’T IGNORE IT – DON’T GIVE UP*.

Hit up My Heart Sisters, Carolyn is an extremely intelligent and prolific blogger who knows her heart savvy. Hit up WomenHeart, they are there to support you. Get Heart Savvy today, know your risks, know what you can do to reduce those risks and know what you should do if those risks are a reality.
