Author Biography

Author of Murdering Eve, a paranormal romance / mythic fiction novel.

I wish I could say I am one of those authors who has been writing since childhood, but I’m not. Writing a book was a bucket-list type of thing for me, and when I got started, woo-boy, let’s just say the experience sank its claws into me and I hope it never lets go.

On the flip side, I’ve always loved reading. When I was a kid, I’d go down to the “five and dime” – yes, they still had those, and no, I’m that old – and hunt through the book rack for Trixie Belden mysteries. I still have a couple dozen of those old books, and can’t wait until my children are old enough to enjoy them. As I grew into my teenage years, I’d sneak my mom’s Sidney Sheldon novels and read them surreptitiously under the covers with a flashlight. Windmills of the Gods and Master of the Game were deeply life changing. Okay, maybe not, but they certainly got my blood pumping for the first time while reading a book, and for THAT I was forever changed.

After a three week trip through Europe in my thirties that included Paris, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Rome, Florence, and Athens – I became a Greek mythology junkie. Ares and Aphrodite, Apollo and Daphne, Eros and Psyche….

Reviewed by Alice DiNizo for Readers' Favorite

Whit Blackstone, a handsome, hunky Wind Troll, is banished from the supernatural world to a mortal life on Earth as his punishment for disobeying the orders of the Troll King Simek; he was to kill a certain child and refused to do so. Meanwhile on Earth, Eric is unfaithful to his lovely wife, Eve, and is killed by his latest office "honey," Holly, who is actually an immortal. Holly loses the Acheron Cup but does get Eve transported to the supernatural world.

Eve is the child of Synrah, and the God Apollo. Unamused by these failures and mishaps, the God Ares knows that Eve thinks she's human and sends her back to earth to bring back the Wind Troll, Whit Blackstone, in less than twelve days. Eve is guarded by her mother, Synrah, and also by Apollo's own Custodaris who has befriended Eve for years. Eve does find Whit. They passionately fall in love, but can she get him back to the supernatural world on time?

Murdering Eve is a well-written, well-edited book with carefully structured tension that makes it a written masterpiece. The humor is delightful, and the use of Greek mythology throughout is perfect, not too much, not too little, just the right amount.

The characters, supernatural creatures for the most part, are well-drawn and believable, and the plot's development will draw readers into the story. Whit and Eve's romance begins slowly and then rolls right into steamy sex scenes that readers will adore. Twilight fans will love this book and want more books like it from the author."
