There is something seriously wrong in Kirra Munro’s head. Besides suffering from amnesia, night after night she is plagued by dark dreams of other worldly rituals and a past she has no right in remembering—or does she?

Psychology professor Cayden McKinnon has the ability to unlock the blockages in her mind, but after one visit things begin unraveling far too fast. 

Time is running out…or has the battle for one woman’s soul just begun?

 Available in print and digital April 25th, 2013!

Once a Druid 500x800

Beyond her heavy eyelids, Kirra knew she was no longer alone. In the darkest shadows a presence had joined her.

The being didn’t breathe. Her sensitive hearing would have detected the slight whoosh of air filtering through the spongy mass of a living lung.

It also wasn’t human—her tongue would have tingled from the imminent promise of a blood offering.

Whatever the thing was, she had never encountered its kind before.

A slight shift in the air to the left alerted her to the creature’s exact position. Part of her wanted to be afraid but her stronger essence knew there was nothing to fear.

A prickling began in the tips of her toes as she pushed the comforting thought into every corner of her brain. Curious about the cause, she stilled her mind and focused on the heat spreading from her feet throughout the rest of her body. Not an entirely unpleasant sensation, it was much like bathing in a gentle wash of warm water.

Once the sensation penetrated her brain she knew all her past actions were being picked apart and judged by the invading heat. Somehow she understood that the being held her life in its hands. Despair saturated the infrastructure of her spirit but ceased almost immediately, leaving a sense of weightlessness at her soul’s core.

“Only the pure of heart can receive my protection—all others perish during the purging.”

The edict slipped into her thoughts like soft feathers turned to a thick warm liquid. Through the haze washing over her reflective process, Kirra sensed her body being lifted off the slab of stone and was unable to resist the movement.

To be cradled against an essence exuding such strength and vitality made her want to cry. All she’d been lacking in her heart flooded her system, choking the breath from her lungs.

“Weep not…”

The voice drifted off into unintelligible murmurings as the shadows behind her eyes turned pure black and Kirra’s thoughts were no more.

Novel Project 2012 – Another milestone reached!!

SUNDAY 12th FEBRUARY 2012

Well ladies and gents, I am proud to announce that I have hit 60,000 words – yes I am now three quarters of the way through writing my first ever novel whoppeeee!

Although I must admit I was naughty and I did not contribute anything towards it yesterday, after having six days off work and then going back on a ten-hour early shift I somehow managed to just eat my tea before snoozing on the settee.

Not very productive at all tut tut.

However, it is only the third day since January 01st that I have not written anything. I have made up for it tonight despite being at work for ten hours again I have pushed through the pain barrier and achieved one of my goals!

For those who know me, there is a scene I am about to write involving the main female character getting rather drunk at a social club party and an unsuspecting males shirt.
