A longtime lover of Fantasy Novels I have decided to put pen to paper and create my own. Many years spent helping high school students write their assignments from years 8 to 12, has given me the experience to forge ahead with this dream! I live on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia and have shared some of the wonders of this area with you in my books. I am married with two teenage children, one studying at University the other in the Senior years of High School. I enjoy reading and writing and spending time relaxing on the beautiful beaches I live near, walking my dog and swimming.

Werelove #2: Midnight Revelations
on Nov. 15, 2012
I really enjoyed the story of this book, but found the writing a little confusing in places.
I found myself irritated by the events happening to the main character and was frustrated by her demure responses to the authority figures surrounding her, which I believe is the author Lakisha Spletzer’s intentions.
You actually feel sorry for the main character and can’t help but wish she would run away from the many threats and boundaries her life designates. She is treated harshly and like a child by every adult surrounding her.
The romance between Laylah and Donil, is a simple teenage love affair but is quite confusing as Donil seems to also interact with Laylah as though she is a child and unable to make her own choices.
Living in the world of the future Laylah is unloved by her father and showcased like a prize asset, controlled and manipulated. She is also unaware of the real world surrounding her, which is filled with Were-creatures of all different species fighting for power and she seems to be the main puppet in their many business dealings.
The end of the book leaves the reader hanging and wanting more as it finishes with an intense cliff hanger. I immediately picked up the second book Dusk Conspiracy to find out what was going to happen next.
Werelove #1: Dusk Conspiracy
on Nov. 15, 2012
Believing this to be the second edition to the series I was disappointed to learn it was a re-edited version of the first book Midnight Relations, with a little more of the darker secrets revealed.
This version gives the reader a little more insight into the dealings behind the scenes of the main characters (Laylah’s) life, which unfortunately impact upon her.
Dusk Conspiracy ends in exactly the same way as the first book, Midnight Relations – with a jaw dropping cliff hanger and the reader wanting more.

Set in Earth's future this sci-fi adventure/ romance, Jewels, written by Lakisha Spletzer, is an interesting read. Taking readers into a very different future for Earth. One filled with telepathy, military rule (Psi-Ops), advanced technology and caught up in a war between two alien races. The Gatoen Empire, (a race of feline creatures) and a wolf species similar to werewolves from the Lupinious Nation.
Jewel, the MC in this story, is a valuable commodity for Earth's telepathic military. She has never known freedom, being brought up by the authorities and used as a weapon because of her abilities. Her only contacts in her life, have been her "Anchors," who help to ground her abilities and keep her in check and her doctor.
She finds a connection, which evolves into love, in an alien feline man, when her new mission involves being part of the greeting party to welcome the Gatoen Empire to Earth, in Dex, the prince of the visiting aliens.
Jewels is a mix of deception, a struggle for power between different factions and is entwined inside a love story as the telepaths band together to save Earth. This refreshingly, intriguing story is a fun read.

Mantis, by Chrystalla Thoma is a short novella telling the story of a boy called Mantis, who although he is not a main character in Elei's Chronicles, is an important piece in the puzzle of the main story.
This novella gives the reader of Elei's Chronicles knowledge and information relative to the story and is an interesting short read, containing information about the world, where this sci-fi adventure takes place.
I found it an enjoyable, enlightening read.

Book One, in the Dark Betrayal Trilogy, Mortal Obligation, by Nicole Chase is a fascinating young adult, paranormal read. I was swept into Ree McKenna's very different life, as she and her friends receive powers from the gods, to battle an ancient foe from another world, who threatens the existence of Earth.
Filled with many twists, readers will find the storyline of Mortal Obligation, unpredictable as they follow Ree's path. At the start of the book it would be easy to think that this was a vampire or ghost story, but with an original concept, Chase has created a unique read.
Rex Rising (Elei's Chronicles, #1)
on May 13, 2013
Rex Rising is the first installment of Elei's Chronicles by Crystalla Thoma, and is a fast paced sci-fi, telling the story of Elei, who is running for his life after his boss and mother figure is murdered in an attack, which takes place in front of his eyes.
They story is set in the future where food and water is scarce and a race of women rule society, with a heavy hand.
The people of this world are kept poor and almost destitute, while the ruling race live in luxury. Unbeknown to Elei, he holds the key to the future of this world as he desperately flees from his persuers.
I found the book a great read and the story quite unique. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes intrigue, sci-fi and espionage, packed into a mysterious setting.

Zombie Nights, by Tom Lichtenberg has an appealing charm, but is a thriller with twists. It tells the tale of Dave Connor's. Poor Dave was murdered by a gang of no good thugs, and left in a shallow grave in a park, dead!
Of course Dave rises and becomes a Zombie, but not the Walking Dead type, he is a little different. Dave expresses to readers how a Zombie feels, thinks, moves, etc. It is quite a different perspective on the world of Zombies.
He finds a place to live with his Uncle, when he just turns up at the door one night and his Uncle helps him to learn human traits once again. I really enjoyed this very unique Zombie experience and would suggest for any Zombie fans out there to give it a go!
