Synopsis | Teaser | The Series | About the Author | Giveaway & Tour Stops


I am going to do something that has never been done before.

My name is Telor Conway, and I am going to destroy Death. Bring her to her knees in front of me.

I don’t know how and I don’t know when.

The only thing I know for certain, is that nothing will come between me and my soul mate ever again.

I’ve been given a second chance at life, a life with Catalina. I’ve been given something worth fighting for.

I will fight for it, for her… for us. Even if it is the last thing I do.

I have thrown the gauntlet.

On your marks.

Get set.


Teaser: Excerpt

     I recognized the house immediately. It wasn’t a place I let my mind wonder to often, it held to many bad memories to think about. Lost my entirely family in this house. My father and brother to a drunk driving and my mother to a bitter, broken heart. All she had left was me, the daughter who looked like her father and reminded her so much of her other child.
     I stood frozen in the walk way between the dining room and the living room. It looked so untouched, so abandoned. My mother was no where to be seen.
     “I took her out of the dreamscape.” An achingly familiar voice said from behind me.
     I turned to face Oliver. He had the same charming smile on that he always did.
     “Can you read my mind?” I asked, he answered my exact thought with me saying anything.
     “I don’t need to.” He came to stand next to me, staring out the large picture window in the dining room. Our backyard looked just as deserted as the rest of the house. Nothing moved, not even the wind. No bird or squirrels. The life outside our house was just as dead as the inside. “It’s written all over your face.”
     “Are you real?” I asked him. “Is this just a dream.”
     “It can be both, Kit-Kat.” He said. “I am as real as I can be right now. And this is dream.”

Flicker [1]

ONLY 99 pence / cents until 9 October 2015!
My name is Catalina Franklin. And I should be dead.
When Death called my number, sending one of her Guides to take my soul, she didn't count on one thing. The Guide she sent - He was made for me, and I for him.

Pulling me back from the arms of Death, Telor changed my fate - and his. Now we're left with the question of not only how he's still here, but why.

Will we get the answers we need? Or will Death find us first? Only time will tell...but ours is quickly running out. [Published 31 August 2014, 322 pages]
