Meet the Author

My passion for writing began in my mid-teens. At the age of sixteen, I wrote my first novel, CINDY'S SONG, a YA coming-of-age, where the main character deals with not only the social and peer pressures of that particular decade (early 80's), but the complex and often mind-boggling hierarchy of the teenage social structure. Unfortunately, due to negligence, the completed manuscript was lost during a gypsy period in my life. I hope to one day re-write the novel with a more scifi feel to it.It was this first completed project that sparked my creative energies, and at twenty-five, I was working on my second novel CHILD OF THE STORM. This was my first venture into the world of science fiction and proved to be a genre I liked writing. When I finished, I began plotting out a sequel STORM RISING, but due to ever changing computer technology, both the manuscript and the outline were lost to corrupt disks and non-compatible word programs.It would be another five years before I would begin writing more consistently. It was during this time that I became influenced by another genre--urban/dark fantasy. Sparked by shows like Buffy and The X-Files, I followed my imagination down another path, and between my love for science fiction and my new interest, I devised twenty or so novel ideas ranging from epics that could only be told in a series of novels, to short stories.Starting in 2007, I decided to become serious about writing, and began honing my skills with the goal of becoming a successful, published author. So far, I have written two novels, a military scifi called DRAGONSTONE and an urban/dark fantasy called THE SAINTS OF BELVEDERE ROAD, with the latter in revision. I have several short stories published online, and several more in various stages of completion.With the ever-changing face of publishing, one must keep up. I plan on self-publishing a series of paranormal novella's that will lead up to several larger books.

    No. Just. No.

    The description alone was BEYOND offensive. I wouldn't even bother with this trash. Educate yourselves about the New Age reliogions.

    Great sequel

    This is a great sequel & I was lucky to get it as a freebie! Started right after I read the first one. The author keeps up the same great detail as the first. Again I couldn't put this one down (until 2 am when I finished it). Cant wait for the 3rd.

    Great and Fast Paced Read Review brought to you by OBS staff me

    Great and Fast Paced Read

    Review brought to you by OBS staff member Annabell Cadiz

    Under the Cover of Wicca continues right where Watchtower had left off. Martin is still attempting to get used to his job working for a half demon-half human boss named Jezryall, a Druid named Aslin or referred to as the Scot, who can do element fused magic, a woman who can see ahead in time and back through touch named Barbara and then there’s Daniel, who can see and speak to the dead—yeah, totally normal job. In the second installment, the team sets out to take down a Wiccan coven using black magic to open the portals of hell by using the souls of innocent victims. As Martin tries to adjust to the rules set by Jezryall, he is also assigned with having to protect Janet, a teenage girl who was at the wrong place at the wrong time. Soon enough the team is thrown into a battle that will have them facing their weaknesses and tragedy as they fight to eliminate an evil that is determined to send the world to Hell, literally.

    I really enjoyed the second installment to the WatchTower Series. Martin was a bit of a wimp in the first one but his character improved in Under the Cover of Wicca. He still whines a bit but that’s due to the fact that a world of magic and supernaturals are mixing into his human life so it’s understandable. Martin is more direct and has a stronger attitude. I still would like to see him in more action related scenes taking the reins but his character was better portrayed in the second installment.

    Aslin, the Scot, of course, is always fun to read. I just love the mystery behind him and the wisdom he holds. He also has a caring heart underneath his studious exterior. Barbara wasn’t as strong of a character as the first novella and she seemed to take a backseat more in the second installment. I was a bit disappointed in that because I wanted to see more of her kick butt attitude. She did have more vulnerability which I understood and appreciated. Daniel was as sweet as always and cute. I’m still waiting for Daniel to have his moment in the sun since he plays a background character more than anything. I do like his gifts though. I love how respectful and delicate he handles the dead spirits. One of the best aspects of the book was how the story showcased more Jezryall’s character. I liked being able to see the story from her perspective and to see the battle within herself with her half-demon part. She is fiercely strong and powerful but she’s also so vulnerable and human....

    Under the Cover of Wicca was a great and fast-paced read. I was happy to be able to get to know the characters I have come to befriend a lot better. I am especially looking forward to seeing what the BIG mystery is behind Jezryall’s secretive comments to Martin’s role in the upcoming battles!

    Definitely a must read!

I liked being able to see the story from her perspective and to see the battle within herself with her half-demon part. She is fiercely strong and powerful but she’s also so vulnerable and human.

    There are only a few things that bothered me within the second installment. Janet was quite the annoying character. She came off too much as whiny and an airhead. I appreciated the fact that she wasn’t in the story that much or the read would have been ruined. As much as I like the fact that Aslin is developing a romance with another character introduced in the second installment, it seemed a little too out of leftfield. It sprang out too quickly and made the scene feel like it was just thrown in instead of flowing with the rest of the novella. If the romance continues I would like to see it better developed. The novella is short which would have frustrated me if not for the fact that the author will continue to explore the characters and plot in future books which I look forward to reading.

    Under the Cover of Wicca was a great and fast-paced read. I was happy to be able to get to know the characters I have come to befriend a lot better. I am especially looking forward to seeing what the BIG mystery is behind Jezryall’s secretive comments to Martin’s role in the upcoming battles!

    Definitely a must read!
