How would you describe this series?
The books are fast-paced paranormal thrillers with both action and romance. When I began writing this series, I set out to create something that would challenge readers. I believe most readers are smart people who enjoy a thought-provoking book. Heartblaze is told from the point of view of multiple characters and takes place in the present-day as well as the past (much like Outlander.) These books are not for people looking for light and fluffy reading, nor for readers completely unfamiliar with the paranormal genre.
Is this series appropriate for all ages?
No. The series is written for adults, young adults, and mature teens.
What types of creatures are in the books?
Quite a number: vampires, werewolves, werebears, ghosts, witches, and fae. The fae have their own unique language that plays a role in some of the books. It's a functional language that I spent a year developing!
