Smashwords Interview

What is the Strange Allies series about?
Children of Ossiria and Strange Allies share the same world, but can be read independently.

In the Strange Allies series, Della has a higher calling, but making sure her mother is taken care of always comes first, and she feels horrible every time she has to lie to her mother about her job. It's been the two of them since she was five years old, so leaving home is painful. Because Della isn't a normal girl, there will be no college graduation ceremony, no wedding to a nice man, and no grandbabies for her mother to spoil, but she'll let her mother hold on to those dreams as long as possible.

Della discovers she's a paladin at sixteen after a vampire attack, surviving due to her skin burning the undead to ashes. Graduating to Agent at eighteen, she embarks on missions to save the world, or at least as many people as she can. When the mysterious vampire Adam starts helping her cause, Agent Seven doesn't trust him. Every vampire is evil, right? Will Adam prove her wrong, or be Agent Seven's downfall?

Urban Fantasy romance.
What are you currently working on?
I, PALADIN, book 3 of Strange Allies.

Strange Allies is my focus for the rest of 2018. Children of Ossiria has 8 titles already.

Children of Ossiria
Strong, compassionate female characters and supernatural bad-ass family men. Blood is thicker than water, but love is thicker than blood. I write in a paranormal setting with vampires and witches and shapeshifters (oh my!), but the heart of my work is family - and all that can mean and entail. It's human nature to bond, so if we don't have blood family, we gather people around us. How do you keep your family safe in a world of monsters? Is having a family - blood or otherwise - a blessing or a liability? What if your children have greater destinies that cannot be avoided? These and more questions are the issues my characters face in all of my books. Ossiria is a land in an alternate dimension. A horrible event took place there that had reach on several worlds, including Earth.
