When Kate’s childhood friend Cor returns to tell her she’s in danger, she’s not happy to see him. Her best friend hasn’t grown up to be a handsome monster hunter, he’s a hallucination.

  • Writer’s life
    Time for writing a blurb for As Shadows Gather, sequel to In Daylight and Darkness. 😳 I do not find blurbs easy, but it’s very exciting to be in the end stages of book 2 of the series. I’m channeling Inigo Montoya. “Let me explain…No, there is too much. Let me sum up.”
