Step On...
Step On...over to the dark side of life. Or is it death? This is a single author collection of some of my paranormal short stories pulled together from other out-of-print anthologies. There are no new stories in this collection, just time-worn, in some cases award-winning, shorts. Ghost, werewolves and vampires inhabit the world I live in. At least, in my creative mind. This collection features one of my favorite stories, Dark Side of the Moon. It features a young man, rent boy turned vampire, who is suffering the effects of a traumatic injury. As a trauma nurse, I believe not all injuries heal instantly, not even for vampires. There are consequences. I like writing about challenges my characters have to deal with. How often do you get a vampire who ultimately discovers he needs a werewolf?
Dark Passions
Dark Passions is a single author collection of some of my short stories pulled together from other out-of-print anthologies. There are no new stories in this collection, just time-worn, in some cases award-winning, shorts. They feature one of my favorite characters to write about -- vampires. I love their power and allure. I like them dark and dangerous. I insist they are passionate and protective. I find it interesting to write powerful, immortal creatures who can be tempered by the strength of love. Love is totally unpredictable and amazingly powerful. It should never be underestimated.

The last thing Renay Skovgaard expected was to find herself a victim of a catfisher. No stranger to online dating, Renay didn't see it coming until it was too late, and she'd already lost her heart. Months after the catfisher had faded away, and time had healed the wound, Renay was finally able to grasp the truth behind the encounter.

Olga knew the game she played was dangerous, because a woman like Renay could destroy the make-believe life she's worked for years to build. After one chance meeting she could feel the walls of her closet crumbling around her, and she knew her life was about to change…forever. Olga and Renay find themselves falling in love; one woman comfortable with her sexuality, the other uncomfortable in her own skin.
