Binding Deceit - New Cover Art

Top haunted novel Binding Deceit just got a new cover. See the tangled web, hinting at the turmoil churning between the pages.

Available through Amazon and on all Kindle devices.




For new lawyer Maryanne Wells, returning to Amarillo, Texas feels like slipping into a favorite pair of worn blue jeans. Her friends eagerly greet her, and Maryanne settles into her old surroundings with a contented sigh. Then, an unwelcome visitor arrives – Anthony, a ghost from Maryanne's past. He's bringing Maryanne a supernatural mystery full of hometown flair. Maryanne's had enough of ghosts and zombies, but Anthony won't leave her alone. Slowly but surely, Maryanne's pulled into a mystery of twisted science, black magic, and tainted love. As Maryanne knows, once you open the door to the supernatural you can't fight the monsters that jump out alone. The smart and saucy heroine turns to the Undead Bar Association, and friend Nick Porpington answers the call. Together they confront a new evil, one with its sights set on conquering more than just Amarillo and Maryanne. Things are heating up in the Texas Panhandle, and Maryanne wants to teach evil a lesson – don't bring your monsters to her hometown.

Shadowed Demise - New Cover Art

Top undead book Shadowed Demise has a new look. The dark and sexy cover introduces readers to the supernatural secrets hidden between the book's pages.

Available on Amazon and Kindle.


Summer begins, and law student Maryanne Wells flees to Dallas, Texas. She desperately wants to escape the memory of the terrible choice she made last year, when a clan of vampires branded Maryanne their newest human slave. Maryanne hopes she'll be safe working in a big city law firm, but the vampires are one step ahead of her. There's something they want Maryanne to find. Between the bright city lights, steamy jazz, and soaring glass towers, a dark secret waits. The secret's lingered for decades, ever since President John F. Kennedy was murdered on a Dallas street. Now it threatens to explode and rip the city apart. The vampires want Maryanne to capture the secret in their name, but if Maryanne can find strength to defy them, she will put the city's ghosts to rest and hold back the vampires' bloody power. Summer in Dallas brings a shattered heroine the chance to rescue a city and save her soul. As Book 2 of the Undead Bar Association series, Shadowed Demise fills the space between parts 1 and 2 of Book 1 - Matriculated Death, answering readers' burning questions about that fatal summer in Dallas.
