My life long dream is to be an author. I have always written something, poems, short stories you name it. Unfortunately I believed it when some people told me I would not be able to do it. Not publishers, other people. I want to try again even if it is just a poem or something. I fear I have lost it, so I read. I read everything.

Jane Charles has lived in the Midwest her entire life. As a child she would more likely be found outside with a baseball than a book in her hand. In fact, Jane hated reading until she was sixteen. Out of boredom on a long road trip she borrowed her older sister’s historical romance and fell in love with reading. She long ago lost count of how many novels she has read over the years and her love for them never died. Along with romance she has a passion for history and the two soon combined when she penned her first historical romance, and she has been writing since with the loving support from her husband, three children and three cats.

My novel, Moroaica, is available from Amazon (and lots of other places too) in both paperback and Kindle editions.
It's the first in a four part series in (The Moroi Chronicles) in which Max, a half-blood vampire slayer, finds her life turned upside down when the other slayers she works with discover that she hasn't killed her vampire father.
The story is written in the first person, present tense, and focuses on Max's internal struggles to reconcile her humanity with the bloodshed all around her, and her own capacity for violence. But there is plenty of action and intrigue too.
Think half way between Buffy and Blade, and you're about there.

I normally write my stuff in German but I started to write in English more often lately. So I hope you excuse grammar mistakes I make and tell me when you have found one.
