Struggle. Adventure. Love.

These are the three elements in any good story. Everything else is background.

Is it December already?

In my eternal quest to get caught up, I'm presenting the Fall Anthology from VTP that a story of mine is in. It's the Fifth in the Appalachia Paranormal series and closes out the world of the 1920s Sherritt witches. Next will be a series of adventures set in, I believe, the 1950s. And I'll continue to explore the modern world in that series. Plenty of adventures to go!

Now for the plug. Remember, you get four great stories by talented authors in this collection, not just mine.

Victory Tales Press offers four sweet to sensual stories to stir your heart and satisfy your craving for romance. Our talented storytellers dare you to enter a world where romance dwells in the most unlikely places. Ghost of a Chance by Gerald Costlow Billy Sherritt, the only warlock born in 300 years, is now a teenager and facing some choices about his life that he doesn't like. He unexpectedly gets sent back in time to 1640 in England, to meet the previous warlock and namesake Bill Sherritt and his sweetheart, Abigail. A Witchfinder is about to show up and the entire witch community is in danger. Billy wants to help, but he arrived as a disembodied ghost and he's forced to stay with Bill wherever he goes. If he can't help this couple escape and make their way to America, his own future might be in danger. So far, he's only managed to compound their love life. It's hard to have a romantic rendezvous with a teenage ghost in the room.

"I'm not a Pooka," he told her, flashing that wicked grin of his. "I'm the Pooka. And I'm not a six foot tall rabbit and my name isn't Harvey. Call me Pook."
Trudy Macalester is a young, single school teacher living with her newly remarried father. Her biggest problem is her love life – or rather lack of one. Then she stumbles across a book of spells, and accidentally summons a magical being from the old country. Pook makes no secret that he's here to seduce her. The problem is, Trudy suspects this handsome rogue is hiding secrets that might be dangerous for her and everyone around her. The legends are clear on one thing: when it comes to dealing with Fairies, nothing is ever as it seems.
I am pleased to announce VTP has published my novella, Third Time's the Charm, and it's available now at Smashwords and Amazon for only 99 cents.
