(Excerpt from my work in progress, Crescent Moon Crossing)
Ten Commandants of a Military Spouse. Rumor read the list. "One, thou shalt not write in ink in thy address book. Two, thou shalt not curse your spouse when he is Tour of Duty during moving days, holidays, birthdays and anniversaries."
Abby grabbed the papers and ripped them in half. "But there's no commandment in there that says I have to put up with my husband sleeping with his officer girlfriend."
Rumor hugged her long and hard before asking, "Are you sure he's having an affair?"
Abby slit the top of the "Open First" box and pulled out the manila folder hidden among tee shirts, bras and lacy panties. She slid her finger under the flap and pulled out the photographs, fanning them out across the bed. "She's already in Arizona, according to these photos. She followed us here." Her eyes filled with tears. "How could I have been so blind?" She wrapped her arms around her stomach and began to rock. "Now I know why he was so adamant about not having kids."
"What are you going to do, Abby?" Rumor asked gently. "Why did you come to Arizona?"
Abby stood, knuckling a tear from the corner of her eye. "If Jace won't stop seeing this woman for my sake, I'm betting his Base Commanding Officer will be interested in his extra-curricular activities. Especially his choice of partners."
She took a deep breath, pulled a business card out of the manila folder, and laid it on top of the box. Private investigator. "I've done my homework. A married soldier having an affair with an officer? It's a Federal offense, subject to court martial."
My debut novel, Song of the Ancients, is now available on Amazon in print and ebook.
What would you die for?
Samantha Danroe doesn't believe in magic. Her ex-husband cured her of happily-ever-after when he cheated on her three days after saying I-do.
She doesn't believe in ghosts. Until her mother's ghost rises from a Halloween bonfire with a warning of death from beyond the grave.
And she certainly doesn't believe in witchcraft. Until she becomes the prey in an ancient war waged between good and evil. A war whose rules she must scramble to learn to stay alive.
In need of protection, Samantha turns to the mysterious stranger who visits her shop. Nicholas Orenda is a sixth-generation witch on the trail of a creature who is systematically killing off his family. According to his family's prophecy, three will be sacrificed to the dark. His mother and grandmother are already dead, and Nicholas doesn't have time to play by the rules.
Samantha finds herself in the center of a deadly hunt for a mysterious foe. Can she find the strength to defeat a supernatural killer and prevent the third sacrifice? Or will she be the catalyst that opens the gates to the Underworld?
Song of the Ancients is the debut book in the Ancient Magic series.
