As a child, books were my constant companion. I've always loved to read, but I didn't start writing until I was twelve. I've had two books published with Harlequin under the name Kasi Blake, but YA books are my favorites. I never outgrew them.
I teach kindergarten thru 2nd grade at a private school, and I reside in Missouri with my two cats, Blanca and Gracie Bear.
When did you first start writing?
When I was twelve, the English teacher assigned us a book to read and report on. The book was The Outsiders, and I fell in love with reading while following Ponyboy, his brothers, and his friends on their adventure. After that, going from reader to writer seemed like a natural step. It also helped that my best friend at the time was writing her own short story. I still remember it vividly. She was a HUGE Shaun Cassidy fan and was doing a story about how they were going to meet and fall in love.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I started out writing for a well-known publisher, but I found it too rigid and binding. I had absolutely no control over my own books. By the time they went to market they felt like they belonged to someone else and not to me. Being an indie writer is awesome. Now I get to choose the cover, the title, and I don't have to write the story the editors want. I write the story that I want to read.
Trick hunts vampires; now he is one.
Oberon desires vengeance. Trick killed his faithful servant. That means Trick and all his friends need to die. But first, Oberon will make them suffer. He places a curse on each of them, a delightful torture made for the individual. Will they survive?
A young vampire hunter searches for a way to escape fate. He was born with power, and it's killing him. When two vampires offer a solution--he can become one of them and live forever--will he choose life? Or would he rather die than become a monster?
Jack is living on borrowed time. A mysterious illness threatens his health while a new enemy threatens his loved ones. His time with Silver is running out, and they all know it. His vampire friends push him to leave her, but he can't go, not until they deal with their new enemy. William has the dark wizard's power. If they don't stop him, he'll kill them all.
This is the third installment in the Rule Series. If you have not yet read Vampires Rule and Werewolves Rule, you will need to do that first.
Jack and Silver's story continues. She's about to head off for college while he's dealing with a missing brother and a psychotic werewolf.
Every year Jack returns to his childhood home in secret. Feeling nostalgic, he wallows in the past. But this time is different. After a close call, Jack wakes to find his fangs are gone. He has a second chance to live, a second chance to be normal. It's great, until he finds out a psycho werewolf wants to kill him... and here he is without his immortality.
The Emmanuels: A Story About Faith, Hope And Love

This book is basically a good read. I was looking for something a bit different, but there's nothing wrong with it. The writing is good. I thought it was a bit too steamy in one scene, but that's just me.
