Something Wicked Returns Blog Hop

I am so excited to be participating in the "Something Wicked Returns" Blog Hop. There is nothing I love better than a great supernatural story, scary movie, or creepy tale. I suppose this is how I ended up writing fantasy novels. I tend to cross genres, but all of my work has a supernatural edge to it. My first novel, "The Harvesting," is a dark fantasy/horror hybrid. My new novel, "Chasing the Star Garden" is a steampunk novel with fantasy elements.


Wicked Facts About Me:

Favorite scary movie: The Shinning. The opening music still manages to give me goosebumps!

Favorite scary book: "The Witching Hour" by Anne Rice. I adored Rice's descriptions of New Orleans and the supernatural appeal of the "demon" lover hanging around a family of witches for ages really sucked me in!

Favorite scary TV show: The Xfiles! The Xfiles had so many great supernatural creatures, its hard to choose just one. Aliens aside, I really adored all the episodes on other monster literature and the underlying romantic relationship was great too!


For this blog hop, I have some "wicked" goodies for you!

1) an Ebook Copy of "The Harvesting," you'll love this if you enjoy zombies, and vampires, and romance, and action--all in one!

2) an ARC of "Chasing the Star Garden" my steampunk novel forthcoming from Clockpunk Press on December 4th. Imagine Dan Brown meets Gail Carriger with a heafty dose of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" except set in 1823 London with a strong romantic element.

3) $10 Gift Card to for you pick of anything supernatural that you fancy!
