Born on Friday 13, Rebecca developed an early love for the unusual. Dragons,
vampires and all manner of magical beings haunt her thoughts and stir her
to the keyboard. She currently lives between the Smoky and Cumberland mountains
with her husband and four cats. Her first YA novel, Fanny & Dice, was
released on Halloween 2015. Her upcoming vampire short story collection
will be released in 2016. She's working on both short and long fiction
on her own and with co-conspirators.
When Dallas homicide detective Kevin Talon wakes up in the ER with no
memory of who put him there, he's grateful he's alive. Except he's not.
He quickly learns that crime scenes are no place for a vampire. But he’s
determined to continue fighting crime. Being as he’s stuck with a permanent
night job, he’s definitely walking on the weird side.
From building Towers of Solitude in Colorado’s mountains to freeing a
bestiary held captive by a demon-possessed Scottish Laird, Elise and Hagatha
Macrow are on the case. Necromantic Shenanigans is a lucky combination
of thirteen stories detailing the escapades of two necromancers, who fight
crime and normalcy without ever donning a cape.
“I'm leaving Hell for good, Eurydice…” When she heard those words, Eurydice
had a choice: remain in Hades' realm or escape to Earth with her kinswoman,
Persephone. She knew the Earth wasn't what they'd left. Demeter hadn't
summoned Persephone to bring Spring for quite some time…and the last dead
crossed the River Styx many years before. She hadn't expected to arrive
in a world where trains rode across the prairie on metal tracks instead
of chariots and men settled disputes with six guns instead of swords. Eurydice
will face perils both immortal and mortal, from gun and axe to her own
From a training academy for henchmen to a super-villain's final throes
and last thoughts, enter the dark world of scoundrels where the line between
good and evil is drawn and crossed. You'll meet scheming mad scientists,
career desperadoes, evil queens, necromancers, and people of questionable
character defeating even more dubious foes. These pages contain mayhem,
devilry, and outright evil. Proceed, if you dare. Mwaaa haaa haaa!
Are you the kind of person who cheers for the underdog? Or in this case,
under-gargoyle, homunculus, or orc? When the action's at its fullest, are
you peering past the hero or heroine, looking to see what the supporting
cast is up to? If so, this is the anthology for you! From a feline familiar
who's got to fill his boss's shoes to a minotaur who is forced to fight
to entertain humans, and trolls who are completely out of control, Misunderstood
is twenty-six tales of the characters who usually stand on the sidelines
supporting either the derring-do or dastardly deeds of the main character.
You've read their tantalizing few lines in popular fiction. Now read their
stories, and hopefully they will no longer be—misunderstood.
Soldiers go through boot camp, which teaches them discipline and how to
fight. Then, they learn a specialty which hones those skills. While no
one can be totally prepared for battle, the military does the best they
can to help soldiers react instinctively to threats. Unfortunately, soldiers
aren't re-trained to go home. Brains are amazing computers. They adapt
to our environment and write “programs” which help us to survive. In the
case of battle-hardened veterans, those programs are still in place and
running. Survival instincts honed on the field of battle can be dangerous
for them and innocent bystanders. A dog can provide comfort, unconditional
love, and non-judgmental support when a vet needs help readjusting to the
civilian world. TADSAW trains and pairs service dogs with vets so they
can re-enter society with less stress and a partner at their side. Many
of these animals came from shelters where they would have been euthanized.
In the end, both animal and warrior are saved. In these pages our authors
present stories about the bond between warriors and their canine friends.
Pull up a chair and share as they tell their tales.
