(Excerpt from my work in progress, Crescent Moon Crossing)
Outside the motel, a silver Honda Accord sat in the shade of an untrimmed mesquite tree, the front window rolled part way down in the stifling Arizona heat. The driver put down his black coffee and picked up a pair of binoculars from the seat beside him. He watched Jace close the motel door behind him and unlock his metallic blue, lovingly-restored Mustang, whistling as he slid behind the wheel. That smug face, seemingly right before him in the magnified lens, made his breath catch and stomach acid boil up into his throat. His grip on the binoculars tightened until his fingers ached. Breathing hard, he imagined his hands around Jace's neck, squeezing, squeezing, until that cocky smile disappeared, replaced by comprehension and then terror.
He wasn't worried about being seen. Chances are Jace wouldn't remember him, especially dressed in a civilian ball cap and logo t-shirt.
But he knew Jace. He remembered him well. Remembered every detail of the night that ruined his life. To Jace, it was a minor setback, barely a blip on the radar of his life.
But to the man in the Accord, it meant much, much more. Soon, he intended to even the score.

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.
Readers interested in witchcraft, shamanism--or just the dark side of the supernatural world around us--will enjoy this paranormal suspense, written by a real-life Wiccan High Priestess. Look for information on the next book in the Ancient Magic series in 2016.
