The darkness in all of us fuels him. Yet it is his murderess who truly brings him to life.

'When she walked into the club his life changed forever. And for a little while, it even ended.

When she murdered him she expected him to stay that way.

She never expected for him to come back as the best partner she'd ever had - in many ways.'

Jackson Flint was born from the first dark deeds of human kind. He has led the darklings through the ages, living off the shadows that exist in all of us.

Alley Cat, however, is a new breed all of her own. And it turns out, he's falling for his murderess.

Sexy, mysterious, violent and deliciously dark. 'Darkling' is a fantasy action-adventure set in the modern world.

Interview with the Author:

Q. What could readers compare 'Darkling' to?

A. 'Indiana Jones' ... but 'Indie' is the fearless assassin-ess, Alley Cat, and the relics she is dealing with are very much alive, in stunning condition, and are just as interested in her too. This is a steamy erotic fantasy, but has quite the archeological action, adventure tone.

Q. What can readers look forward to seeing?

A. An incredibly strong female lead, explicit romance (this is for 18+ adults), a dark urban setting, ancient myth and fantasy alive and well in the modern day.

Q. What do you love most about this novel?

A. Alley Cat is SO suave - she knows what she wants, and goes for it. Whether it's by jumping into the action, into a hot-hot-hot situation, or by taking down corrupt underworlders.

However, I especially loved writing Jackson Flint. He was born from the first dark deeds of humankind, and he doesn't give a WUT about much. He is snarky, smooth, humourous, dangerous, has an awful lot of bisexual fun, and is a delicious anti-hero.

Q. What do you want your readers to know?

A. Historical, legendary and religious tales twist their way through this one - but take it with many grains of salt. It's all in the name of good fun - saucy fiction and adventure.

Also ... hearing from you feeds my soul. Feel free to reach out.

Also also ... there's a gift inside the novel, as a thank you to perfect readers. A taste tester of the LGBTQ+ 'Raze Warfare' gang action series.

Also also also ... read, read my pretties! And enjoy.

About the Author

Funnily enough, I was not always a natural writer let alone author. I was terrible at maths, and was such a dunce with reading and writing that I had to do special programs (I stayed down in PREP!) to help my five year old self catch up.My sister made sure I knew the funny little shapes that made up the letters to my name, but I was otherwise the child who stared out the window, coloured the pictures rather than solving the activity sheet problems, and asked questions that had already been answered.Thanks to my miraculous childhood teachers, and my persistent mother, I went from drawing squiggles and mumbling/fake reading when it was my turn to read aloud in class ... to devouring picture books and everything beyond.I remember groaning every time mum made me sound out each word, reading each excruciating sentence over and over and feeling like I was never going to get it. I also remember feeling like the school library was a barrier, a place to feel embarrassed and jealous, until one day all of that practice seemed to make sense. I hadn't even realised it was happening until I half-heartedly-picked up 'Green Eggs and Ham' and realised I didn't have to fake read it - even on my own.I can't explain the shift in who I was at that moment. I was no longer the kid who was stuck. I was the kid who had proud parents, and who was given a whole Dr. Seuss book set to celebrate.I was the kid who came to rely on books for an escape from high school and who started writing for myself.I was also the kid who was never cured of the maths issues though. This isn't a fairy tale after all.
