Forget everything you thought you knew about vampires--they just don't exist. But there are others with similar appetites and they certainly appreciate how well the folklore has protected them.
How do you deal with having to dine on the humanity you adore? Feast on the miscreants. And don't get too close to the good ones.
This is Paul Christian's choice. A seemingly mortal man, he has numerous special abilities. Unfortunately, well, most unfortunately for some, he needs human blood to survive. A low-key crime novelist, Paul leads a cautious and comfortable life-until he falls in love.
Lauren is just managing to keep her tavern open when she meets Paul--a charismatic man who carefully weaves himself into her life. Suddenly, her business picks up and she finds herself surrounded by new friends and a sense of family. And she begins to sense something else... she's just not sure what it is.
Life will change--for everyone.
A literary take on a Gothic tale, addressing alienation and the desire to belong, the hunger for love and purpose in life, and the struggle to do what is right--even if it is not what is good.

About the Author
One of my earliest memories is of writing. Poems, little stories by a little girl... words were the best presents that I could give. I grew up writing poetry and participated in the Chicago poetry scene in my twenties. At that time I was also painting and testing the fit of my voice in longer writings. I taught English in the public school system from some of Chicago's most challenging neighborhoods to those struggling economically in Phoenix. In both, it has been my privilege to witness the strength of humanity rising from adversity. I'm drawn to issues of social alienation; loneliness; the search for purpose and meaning in life; the tug of right against wrong within us all; and the beauty that can be found in surviving the odds. I believe is that there is probably a lot more to this world than we can comprehend and I feel that we need to question our concepts of truth and reality. It is a bit pompous to assume that we, the human race, know everything there is to know. In other words, it might be a good idea to consider the possibility that what we thought impossible is in fact, perhaps, probable.
