Sharp, sarcastic, and efficiently lethal, John Charming would feel right at home having drinks with Dean Winchester and Harry Dresden. DARING, the second book in the Pax Arcana series, is just as addicting as the first.

Something is rotten in the state of Wisconsin.
Werewolf packs are being united and absorbed into an army of super soldiers by a mysterious figure who speaks like an angel and fights like a demon. And every Knight Templar — keepers of the magical peace between mankind and magickind — who tries to get close to this big bad wolf winds up dead. No knight can infiltrate a group whose members can smell a human from a mile away…no knight except one.
John Charming. Ex knight. Current werewolf. Hunted by the men who trained him, he now might be their only salvation. But animal instincts are rising up to claim John more powerfully than ever before, and he must decide if this new leader of wolves is a madman…or a messiah.

When your last name is Charming, rescuing virgins comes with the territory — even when the virgin in question is a nineteen-year-old college boy.
Someone, somewhere, has declared war on Kevin Kichida, and that someone has a long list of magical predators on their rolodex. The good news is that Kevin lives in a town where Ted Cahill is the new sheriff and old ally of John Charming.
The attacks on Kevin seem to be a pattern, and the more John and his new team follow that thread, the deeper they find themselves in a maze of supernatural threats, family secrets, and age-old betrayals. The more John learns, the more convinced he becomes that Kevin Kichida isn’t just a victim, he’s a sacrifice waiting to happen. And that thread John’s following? It’s really a fuse…

Charming e-book now available for 1.99

As a means of promoting my second novel, Daring (coming out in late September) Hatchette is releasing Charming for 1.99. That’s right, not even two whole American dollars – just 1.99! So if you’re one of those entirely reasonable people who don’t want to spend serious money on any enterprise as risky as a new author, or an avid reader who wouldn’t have food or shelter if they didn’t force themselves to stick to a book budget, this offer might be for you.

Coastal Magic

in 2015 on February 7th and 8th (maybe even February 5th and 6th if I can swing it) I will be going to the Coastal Magic convention in Daytona Beach.  This is my first ever fantasy convention in any capacity (unless you count Bonnaroo) so I’m kind of excited.  If you’re there, just look for the mildly embarrassed author who showed up in an orc costume.  


On August 29th I will be posting a free Pax Arcana short story in the annual STOMP vs ROMP competition, an event where Rabid Reads ( and The Book Nympho ( stage some sort of literary cage match with bloggers arguing for Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance.   Or beating up over heating up if you prefer.   

I am on the urban fantasy team.
