Survival Instincts [Coming March 2018]
Civilization ended long before Lynn Tanner was born. Wild animals roam the streets, but mankind is still the biggest threat to a woman alone in the ruins of a world reclaimed by nature. Lynn survives by sleeping with one eye open at all times and trusting no one but her dog.
When she is forced to go on a dangerous journey through the concrete jungle of New York City, Lynn does all she can to scheme her way to safety. Her guard, Dani Wilson, won’t be played that easily, however. As their lives become entwined, Lynn finds herself developing feelings for Dani and is forced to find the answer to the question that scares her most: is staying alone really the best way to survive?
Fast-paced and full of adventure, Survival Instincts introduces a post-war dystopian world where the only person you can rely on is yourself…unless you fall in love.

Centralia, 2013 (anthology)
“On a dark and stormy night a coven of writers gathers to spellcheck under a hallowed moon. The result is a bubbling cauldron of fear, suspense, and absolute sexiness. From the ghostly seduction of a Victorian governess, to vampires in the substance abuse clinic, with witchery in the coffee house, and cannibalism in the kitchen, this selection of stories is dark, damning, and terrifyingly erotic. To be read by candlelight, and never alone!”
Rayhana Kincaid has been claimed by an angel–which is remarkably less useful than one might believe. Even with angelic guidance and a good grip on Enochian magic, life is hard for a self-proclaimed occultist and hunter, especially when Rayha has to deal with the most difficult creature of all: her human clientele.
There are only so many cases of demon possession you can go through before you become completely unphased. And yet, there is something about this particular case that has Rayha on edge. Perhaps it’s because Centralia is demon territory. Perhaps it is because her client Aisha is so close to her own age. Whatever it is, it is up to Rayha to save Aisha and prevent the opening of a hell gate in the ever burning tunnels of the former mining town.
