Escape Inside the Pages of a Book

It's been a while... but I'm back, and so are my revamped and rebranded original novels, plus some exciting new ones are on the way!

I hope you're all well - life's been uncertain and hectic lately, hasn't it? So, let's set reality aside for a moment and talk about... BOOKS! 

BOOKS are a great escape - like you didn't already know that, but humor me. The moment you crack the spine and peel back the pages, something magical happens! Whether, you're reading, mystery, adventure, love or lust, and my personal favorite... fantasy with all of the above included, you're instantly transported into new worlds, and it's truly amazing how many worlds there are out there to live in, for a while, at least. Sometimes, I get so immersed in a good story, I don't even know the world around me exists. I also experience this while writing - but that's a story for another time. 

Someone's heart, poured over page after page, can transport you to magical lands you've never dreamed were possible, places you've never actually been to, and some you have. Meet all sorts of interesting characters - BE those characters.

A good story will grip your heart in its claw and stroke it like it's an abandoned kitten. Then, with the turn of a page, it can also rip that purring heart to shreds, and stomp all over it, kicking it to the abyss of emotions. Either way, it gives us all the feels we long for. A great story will prickle the hairs on the back of your neck, make your tummy flutter, and your eyes pool at the corners - possibly all at once. As you surrender your sanity to the words, the World's problems chill and hover near the fringes of sanity. Then you release a languid sigh and snap the book shut, breathing in reality once more, with the knowledge that you can revisit that world any time you like, or enter a new one - the options are endless. 

What are you waiting for... READ A BOOK - BE the characters - LIVE their lives - FEEL their plight - WANDER their no, your lands. It's all possible in the pages of a BOOK...

I'd love to know what type of books are your escape... please add your comments on the page, Facebook or Instagram.

I'm at the Toronto Public Library

Well not me personally, but I'm there in the spirit of my words! The Gathering Darkness is now available in paperback at the  

Do you reside in Toronto? Just visiting? Stop by one of four libraries (click link for details) and check out my Young Adult novel, The Gathering Darkness.

Steeped in reincarnation, witches, fairy lore, mystery, and love, this dark and magical paranormal romance will capture both teens and adults and keep you glued to the pages. You may even have to sleep with a light on.

They say, "Third time's the charm," and for sixteen-year-old Brooke Day, they had better be right. She's been here before, twice in fact, and so has the darkness awaiting her return.

When Brook Day is forced to leave Boston for the village of Deadwich, she thinks her life is over. Before long, her new friends start acting strange—downright evil. But worse then that; nightmares she's had her whole life become reality.

Enter Marcus Knight. He's popular, hot and the only person Brooke can trust. Not to mention, they've shared the same nightmares.

As the equinox approaches...
Darkness and light merge for the first time in a century.
Soul-mates reunite.
Magic awakens.

Excerpt from Chapter Seven:

"A stick snapped beneath my foot echoing eerily through the trees. I jumped, and so did my heart. The sharp caw of a lone crow followed from somewhere up above the treetops, sending chills down my spine. I lifted my gaze but could see nothing through the thick canopy of twisted tree branches, but a few specks of darkening sky.

Unpleasant warmth seeped under my skin as the darkness came alive. I blinked away the trickle of moisture that ran down my forehead and into my eyes, stinging them, but I didn't move. My body was on lock-down now, as it always was in the face of my worst fear - the dark. It closed in on me, becoming thick and heavy. I was too terrified to move a muscle for fear the darkness would see me."

If you're in the Toronto area, check out my book - literally. I would love to see your pictures of where you found them - library - shelf - you reading to a pet. You can post them on my author Facebook page here: Facebook.

Here are a few places I found The Gathering Darkness first edition (old cover).

Store window in Chester, Nova Scotia.
At Chapters - Indigo, triangled between, Star Wars, Star Trek, and War Craft. Not a bad place to be, although they put my Young Adult Paranormal for teens in the fantasy section. But I wasn't complaining :)
