Life in progress


Hey! It’s a free paranormal romance novel!

It’s been an exciting week for a couple of reasons. One, my book, The Magician’s Curse, scored a spot on Kobo’s free page. Only six books are chosen per week in each featured category, so the ebooks have been flying off the virtual shelves!

Check it out here!

What’s really cool? I’ve distributed my book to 26 countries this week. Here’s the map.

Enter a world of dark family secrets …

Herman believes setting out to make a better life for herself will solve all her problems. Until she meets a charming, mysterious stranger on a train.

The moment Stephen Dagmar sets eyes on Herman, he knows he’s found a new assistant to join him onstage in his magic show. And the woman of his dreams.

At home in Stephen’s Gothic mansion, Herman revels in the extravagant romance he lavishes upon her. Yet a shadow hangs over their fragile love. Is his devotion really what it seems?

Amidst lace and leather, innocence and debauchery, The Magician’s Curse begins the spellbinding tale of The Great Dagmaru.
