The Shadow Jumpers series is a duo of tales (soon to be a trio) introducing the world to just a fraction of what happens AFTER we make certain decisions that take us to and beyond the brink of death

Neverlove released in the fall of 2012, a story that questions is love amidst chaos doomed? Follow Abby and Basil on their journey to find out. It has a Gothic appeal with heaven and hell agents reminiscent of Constantine.


For seventeen-year-old Abigail, one rash decision leads to an unexpected chance for redemption. At V'Salicus Academy, a unique institute where she trains to become an agent of heaven, she struggles with the pain of her past, the changes of the present and accepts a loveless future until her path – and heart – crosses with Basil’s.

Basil's off-chance slip of the tongue binds him to a life of servitude to the Devourer, the master of hell. His existence has no upside until a chance meeting with Abigail brings new perspective.

Keeping the truth of their present lives from each other brings disaster when secrets are brought to light and the life of Abigail’s mentor is put on the line.

Can Abigail and Basil save her mentor and salvage their love amid the chaos? Or will they lose it all, destined forever to NEVERLOVE?

***in conjunction with Shadow Jumpers is another duo of short stories introducing secondary characters that will make appearances in the Shadow Jumpers world.***

NEO – Network of Extraordinaires and Otherworldlies:
A perfect storm is brewing:
* Jealous goddesses
* Vengeful gods
* Hell with a new master, more craving
* Dark intentions of the living and undead

All ready to pour chaos upon unwitting humans.

Along the vein of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, members of NEO must come together if mankind is to be saved from the evil intentions of others and from itself.

Those who answered the call from NEO play their part in maintaining balance in our ever-changing times. With power-hungry malcontents, jealous gods, and even those with misguided good intentions, the fate of our world has oft been held in the hands of unsung heroes such as those that are members of NEO.

But before NEO, these heroes had lives, loves, issues and interests that did not involve saving mankind. 

NEO Chronicles are case files revealing a hint of the lives lived before and at the turning points where NEO joined into their life's path. Told in novellas and short stories, readers will learn of NEO's imperfect heroes willing to risk it all to keep mankind from all out destruction.

AVAILABLE NOW Aimee and Luca, in FRAILTIES OF THE BOND, where vengeance leads one young man to the last things he ever expected: love and a new purpose in life.

Short blurb:
Beacon - For seventeen-year-old Macie Breen, life in The Colony is a daily norm of being the odd girl out, that is, until everyday predictable slams to a screeching halt. Forced to the capital city of Bliss, Macie's life becomes a horrific unraveling as she confronts daunting truths about The Colony as well as who, or what, she really is.

Longer description:
Tsunamis reduced the USA into a shell of itself, called The Fold. Surviving humans and vampires joined forces to form The Colony, where registered citizens do as they're told. 

They donate blood quarterly and dream of being chosen as Attendees for the Jubilee celebrations, that is, everyone except Macie Breen. With high school graduation near, she’s anxious to ditch the rules in hopes of starting a new life with Thane, an unregistered and also her best friend. 

Her hopes fizzle when Macie is selected as an Attendee, forever registered. Any future with Thane…impossible. Being chosen comes with another unexpected price. 

Truths about The Colony blaze into ashes and lies when she discovers the vampires haven't kept their part of the bargain. Worst still, Macie’s life unravels as her stint in the city of Bliss forces her to face daunting truths about who, and what, she really is.

Excerpt:
 “We’re not kids anymore, Macie. You’ve learned what little The Colony had to say about the vampeer, wights and devil spawn. There’s something else they’ve hidden from you. From all registered citizens. I’ve wanted to tell you for a long time why we met. Just how special you really are. But you won’t want to be my friend anymore once you know the truth. Losing you would be…”

Words trickled from my mouth unfiltered. “I, what do you mean I wouldn’t…”

He turned to me, chewing his bottom lip. The last time he did that was the day I broke first blood.

We were playing at knight warriors, a favorite of ours since we were kids. I thrust my wooden sword forward. It clattered to the ground as I doubled over from a sharp spasm in my stomach. I tried to shoo Thane away, deal with the pain on my own. But, noticing the grimace on my face – I really tried hard to be quiet, but I cried out anyway – he wouldn’t have it. When he glanced at my yellow cargo pants, he chewed his bottom lip, eyes wide. My gaze trailed down to the bloody mess I’d become. My face couldn’t have flashed hotter if I set it on fire.

Now he was doing it again, chewing his bottom lip. What could he possibly have to say? He opened his mouth to speak when the tent flap ripped away. We jerked our heads around to face a tall being covered in shaggy, brown fur from scalp to hoof. A shadowy glow encircled it like a dirty aura. Two arms protruded from both sides. Jagged teeth crowded its mouth. Drool leaked down its chin. Reptilian eyes shone bright white with a red slit down the middle. One set of eyelids blinked side to side as the second set followed up and down. It snarled, spat and drooled some more. My bladder felt one moment away from losing it.


“Frag me,” I whispered as my world collapsed into a nightmare.

    1. Hi Kendal! I'm so glad you enjoyed Neverlove. *squee!!!*

      I'm working on the sequel THEY ALL FALL DOWN even as I type this. It will be late summer/early fall as I want to make sure to put it through the normal rigors before releasing it.

  3. Saw your covers and loved them! Was actually planning on purchasing the first book but was wondering if it's available via paperback? I read ebooks when authors request me to read but I prefer to buy paperbacks as I get through them much faster XD

  4. I really loved Neverlove and They All Fall Down! I loved the multi ethnic characters and there needs to be more African American paranormal romance books! You mentioned that there is going to be a third book in the Shadow Jumpers series. Is it going to be the story of Basil and Abby? Or will it focus on other characters?

    1. I'm so glad you enjoyed them, Shan :-) The last book will include Abby and Basil but also characters introduced through the NEO Chronicles, a sort of merging of the two sets. I've been delayed in getting it published but I hope to get it out soon.
