Jean-Louis Riviere is an aristocrat who became a vampire during the American Revolution. He is haunted by an ill wind whispering strange and incredible possibilities. His family ties will lure those who wish to destroy the prophecy; however, the Archangel also knows his blood is all that will save the rose and secure the future.
Drahomira is a gypsy, a bastard princess, and a vampire. The Archangel of Death chose her to protect the phoenix because she is an irreverent killer but loyal to family. She will journey across continents and be the catalyst that brings Rhea and Jean-Louis together. First, she must leave her people, her throne, and her lover, cross a continent for vengeance, die, and be reborn. Only then will she discover that she is the rose’s legendary thorn in the Evening Bower.
My first poem was published at age five and my first article (what I did for summer vacation) was published with a local newspaper at age 13. It earned me five dollars. Right then, I knew writing was what I wanted to do with my life. Now I have published three books of poetry, one book of photography, one urban fantasy novella, and a fictional memoir.
I am a retired US Air Force veteran, well traveled, a vampire scholar, a wistful believer in dragons, a lover of fine wine and finer dark chocolates. I love wine tasting, old black and white movies, moonlight and snow, twilight and blue roses. I love to read and recently read and support Indie authors!
I am happily married for over 25 years to a wonderful man who is also a retired USAF veteran.
