Jaguar shifter, Brent, is on the most important mission of his life, to find his missing brothers. Separated years ago when their family home was attacked by the Ravens, Brent has never forgotten his lost siblings and will do anything to bring them back home. Then he finds out that one man holds the key to their location, a Hawk shifter named Daniel.
Daniel has been on the run from the Ravens ever since they nearly eradicated all of his kind. Hiding by living as a human, the last thing he wants is to be sucked back into the shifter world. Then he wakes up to find a Jaguar shifter in his bedroom, demanding his help. Even though he wants to refuse, Daniel takes one look at the desperation in Brent’s eyes and knows he has to help.
Even the smallest child knows that cats and birds don’t mix. It still doesn’t stop the two men’s growing attraction to each other. Even as they fight new and old enemies, their feelings of love grow. Will they be able to overcome a lifetime’s worth of hatred and prejudice to be together? Or will they have the pay the ultimate price for love?

These books are done and will be going through edits before being released soon (hopefully):

Fangs, Fur and Fey Book #2

There’ll also be some other stories she’ll be getting the rights back for and then they’ll be included in the re-release queue.

Orlando: Gays vs. Guns

Flint

I promised that I would blog about Flint’s water crisis and here it is. It’s going to be long, ugly and at times controversial. So, if you came here for a light-hearted post or are easily offended, I promise not to get angry if you decide to leave now.

Now, that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about Flint, shall we? The water crisis isn’t the first problem that has occurred in Flint. It’s been a boil that’s been festering for years now and finally burst. It was loud enough that it finally caught the world’s attention. I say that the world should have been looking into Flint’s problems years ago.

Decades of political corruption, racism and a declining economy have wreaked havoc on a once great and proud city. First, we had GM pull out of Flint. That left behind countless unemployed. Real estate value dropped, business that had been in the city forever closed their doors, the schools became neglected. Worse of all, we forgot that the city is full of people. People who are living, breathing and feeling, just like the rest of us. In short, people whose lives matter just as much as those in Bloomfield Hills and Rochester, the more wealthy cities in Michigan.

I never truly realized the scope of the problems until I became a paramedic. I was assigned to Flint. It was a happy time for me. I thought that I could make a difference. I was going to go in there and make a change. Help out the poor and lift up their spirits.

What a stupid, white, privileged woman I was. It wasn’t until I held the hand of a grandmother, who was weeping, that I saw how wrong I was. She had been beaten by her own grandson, because she’d refused to let him sell drugs from her home. All I could do was pray with her, for that is what she requested.

Then there was the time I went to a home of a poor, white family. Their baby was having an asthma attack. The home was filled with cigarette smoke. They didn’t even realize that they were adding to the problem, because the hospital lacked the funds to teach them about such things. Now, I know that some of you are saying that was just a common sense thing, but they really didn’t know that simple fact.

Or I could tell you about the numerous pregnant women I picked up. When they hopped into the back of my rig and I asked them why they called, I was told they needed to have a simple pregnancy checkup. Why did they call us? Because the hospital was their only option for free prenatal care.

Then, just when I thought that things couldn’t get worse, they did. The city closed two of their four hospitals. They told the public that they were consolidating them into one bigger hospital in Grand Blanc. All of us in the EMS community knew that was bullshit. All four of the hospitals were filled to their capacity. On weekends, some patients even had to lay on cots lining the hallways of the ER. There was no way that they could drive to Grand Blanc. Even if they did, none of their family members could afford to come and be with them.  

So, once again the city officials did what they did best, offer the people of Flint false hopes and straight-out lies. Sorry if I sound a bit bitter about this, but watching a once beautiful city turn to shit over the past two decades has left me mad.

The citizens of Flint don’t stand a chance from the moment they are born. They aren’t given good medical care as children. From day one, their school system is below standards. Do you know that some students graduate from high school, yet they can’t even read?

So, what does the higher government do about all this? They continue to close their eyes and turn their backs to these people. So I guess it is left up to individuals like you and me to take up the fight.

We must fight for the prosecution of these corrupt officials. Demand better education and medical standards for Flint youth. Most of all, we must continue to fight for equality of all Americans.

Out Now!!!!

The Great Unicorn Hunt Begins is finally out at eXtasy Books!!!!

Blurb:

Alice could not help her lips curling up into a smile as she began, “Do you know, I always thought that Unicorns were fabulous monsters, too! I never saw one alive before.”
“Well, now that we have seen each other,” said the Unicorn, “if you’ll believe in me, I’ll believe in you. Is that a bargain?”
–Lewis Carroll, The Lion and the Unicorn, Through the Looking Glass and what Alice Found There.

Charlie is a happy Unicorn. He has a place to live, all the sugar he could ask for, friends, and he’s safe. Or, at least he was until some Vampire put a billion dollar bounty on his head. Not wanting to put his friends in danger, Charlie leaves and makes a run for it on his own.

Ever since William was cursed with immortality, he knew he’d never be able to find someone to love. But one look at Charlie challenges that thought and sends William’s life spinning.

Will William be able to rescue Charlie? Or was their love doomed from the very beginning?

Free Speech – Who Decides?

Last Sunday in Chicago seven people were stabbed during a neo-Nazi demonstration. My understanding is that various anti-Nazi groups showed up and clashed with them. Who the groups were are up to question, since I’ve read conflicting news stories. Now, the neo-Nazi’s did have a permit and had claimed that it was to be a peaceful speech. Although, I don’t know how anybody can say that spouting hate speech while carrying knives is peaceful. In the end, seven people ended up stabbed or injured.

This made me think hard and sent me through various emotions. It’s was on the two-week anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub massacre. With forty-nine people dead, it marks the largest mass shooting in America. It was, also, a hate crime. One that was directed at people of Latino heritage and the LGBT community. In short, two groups that neo-Nazis are not known to be friendly towards.

I scrolled through the many comments left on these news reports. Many of them sided with the neo-Nazi group. They’d gotten the permit to demonstrate and there is that First Amendment. The one that gives us freedom of speech.

Yet, part of me wants to rebel against that. Don’t get me wrong. I’m an author and words are my life. Nobody embraces the First Amendment more than I do. Yet, in the wake of the attacks, I find myself wondering if some are crossing the line.

All over the country we have governors, senators, Presidential hopefuls and other elected officials trying to pass discrimination laws. Whether it be not allowing transgender individuals to use the bathroom that they identify with, or laws that would protect LGBT people from being fired from their jobs. It’s no wonder that LGBT youth continue to be bullied. The number of black, transgendered women murdered, just this year alone, is staggering.

Even on the day of the Pulse shooting, several preachers stood in front of the congregations and praised the shooter. A man from the Orlando prosecuting office tweeted that Orlando was a “void” and a “cesspool”.

Let’s not kid ourselves, it’s because of hate speech that the Orlando shooting took place. Yes, I know that this individual was mentally ill and had a history of violence, so the fire was already going. But, the words that these people said added more fuel to the flames.

So, it’s natural for all of us to say that this has to stop. We have to start holding people accountable for what they say. That we need to end hate speech and these groups that thrive because of this.

Yet, on the other hand. Free speech is free speech. The First Amendment doesn’t say Freedom of Speech, unless certain people don’t like it. Plus, I worry that if we were to pass laws that limited this right, it could be used against us, as well.

What’s the answer? How can we end this? Damn, I wish I knew. I don’t know how we can stop this. I just guess that we’ll have to make our own voices louder, so we can be heard over the hate.

That’s what kind of America I want. The one who accepts everybody as who they are. The one that opens its arms to the weary and the weak. The one that allows freedom of religion. Isn’t that what our forefathers really wanted?
