A New Year...A New Book.......




BEDEVILED is coming! BEDEVILED is coming!!

Oh, wait. Maybe you don't know about BEDEVILED yet. So um, why would you care that it's coming?

Okay, let me start that over. On the left, is the cover for BEDEVILED. Gorgeous, yes? I think so. And even better, it's a terrific story if I do say so myself!

Sure, I may be a little biased, since I wrote the book, but let me tell you a little bit about it and you decide...

See, I love paranormal. The weirder the better as far as I'm concerned. But I also like my otherworldly books to have a sense of humor. Needless to say, BEDEVILED does.

The book starts out with Maggie Donovan going to return her ex-boyfriend's ABBA cd's only to find him being eaten. When it looks like she's going to be dessert, Maggie fights back against a creature like she's never seen before. In the incredibly clumsy battle for her life, Maggie inhales what looks like gold dust. Turns out, it's Faery dust and it's already beginning to change her life! Suddenly, she's super strong and has a tendency to float at the most inopportune times. And just when she thinks it can't get worse, it does.

Culhane, a centuries old Fenian Warrior for the Fae arrives to tell Maggie that she is the Destined Queen of the Fae. The only trick is, she has to defeat evil Queen Mab to claim the throne. No problem, except that Maggie doesn't know how to fight, doesn't have time to fight and hey, has zero interest in being the Queen of a world she never even knew existed until like five minutes ago!

But as she and her family come under attack, Maggie discovers that the only way to keep everyone safe is defeat Mab and become a queen whether she wants to or not. Of course, her sister Nora loves the whole Fae thing. And Nora's daughter Eileen researches Otherworld and peppers her befuddled aunt with facts and tips. Then there's Bezel, a two thousand year old pixie with an attitude, who shows up to train Maggie for her coming battle.

And did I mention that Culhane and Maggie have a much deeper connection than she knows? That this Fenian Warrior will do anything to claim her as his? And oh yes, Culhanes also got this pesky little connection to Mab, too.

Things are hopping around Maggie Donovan as she tries to become the Queen of Otherworld! I really hope you all rush out and buy it!!

BEDEVILED hits the shelves on Jan 6th! Be sure to look for it! Or, click on one of the links in this blog and preorder if you want to make a writer happy!

Either way, I wish you all peace and joy and good health in the coming new year!

And always, I wish you great books!
