Fire: Elements of the Undead - Book One
This is a work of fiction. All the characters and events portrayed in this book are fictional, and any resemblance to real people or incidents is purely coincidental.
For Robin, who continues to support my quest to become a fulltime author. And for my parents, who taught me the value of a good story.
I’d also like to give special thanks to Gretchen Cooke, Becky Smith, and Don Query for taking the time to critique this novel as it evolved. This wouldn’t be possible without your input. Finally, I’d like to thank Chris Muller, who took a mediocre cover and made it shine. Thank you!
