Forbidden love… Murder…Ghosts… Hidden treasure… Holy water… Voodoo…
All of these take place at Whispering Willows.
Whispering Willows Plantation was a place that knew love, loss, heartache, and anger. When things take place that causes a chain reaction that affects not only Whispering Willows, but also the people who live there, you learn that sometimes people leave more behind than they realize when they leave.
Caitlyn Reed’s life changed drastically when she met Gregory Ferris, and not for the best in the long run. When she finds out what Gregory has done at Whispering Willows, she decides she has to do what she can to release the evil that he has left on the amazing home. What she didn’t realize was that it wasn’t just Gregory’s evil that had taken over the home, but someone else’s–someone from the past.
Murder isn’t something that Pointe Creole hasn’t dealt with in the past. When a new string of murders leaves the police with no leads, that’s when Caitlyn realizes there might just be more to the noises the old house is making.
With the handyman, Scott, by her side, Caitlyn embarks on her mission to rid the house of the evil. While at the same time, trying to ensure that the murderer that is on the loose isn’t after her as well.
Will Caitlyn be able to free Whispering Willows of the evil that haunts it, or will it be too much for her? Are the police of Pointe Creole going to be able to catch the serial killer before another woman is found?

“The Hideaway” and “The Traveler” are sure to keep you in suspense with each turn of the page. What twisted tortures will these serial killers use on their victims? Can anyone stop these ellusive killers?
“Dr. Frankenstein” is a medical malpractice thriller that will have you wondering which experiment he will perform next on a patient.
“Above Suspicion” is for those suspense thriller lovers that want to be kept on the edge of their seat but without all the gory details of the murder. Step into the mind of the killer as he searches for the perfect and obedient wife.

He can’t seem to stay away from his new love but he is on a deadline and the new Haunted House will be opening soon. “House of Wax” inspired me to write this book.
“Echoes on the Bayou” and “Seven Deadly Sins” involve one of my favorite characters to date, Detective Jo Melancon. Follow her and Detective Chad Picou as they search the streets of Bear Corner, Louisiana for the killer.

“A Kiss So Deadly” is not only my first true paranormal romance but it is a book that holds a special place in my heart.
My parents and I worked on this book to make sure the little details were correct. My dad’s family did have a plantation home for many generations. I actually have a dresser that was built from some of the wood in that plantation home. This particular dresser was handmade as a wedding gift from my dad.
During the late 1800’s a murder did occur on the plantation grounds.
The haunted plantation I write about in the book existed as well. It was a family home for an aunt’s husband. Several times when we would visit my aunt you could find the piano mysteriously playing.
A presence could be felt in the house but it was never one that caused you to fear it.
My in laws worked with me on the historical facts. My husband’s family made their way to Louisiana by Nova Scotia. I had wanted to include the plight that the Cajuns went through to get here. It was my no means a pleasant experience. Some were torn from their loved ones while in Nova Scotia and forced to leave their homes that they had worked hard to build.
“A Kiss So Deadly” can be found at amazon.com and smashwords.com. Soon on Nook and iBook.
Bridgette Marquette finds herself torn between 2 men but could one of them have sinister motives? A Kiss So Deadly
My first paranormal romance, A Kiss So Deadly, is available on smashwords. Hopefully by this time tomorrow night it will be also be on Kindle and Nook.
It looks like I am going to start off the new year right. My first paranormal book will be available for purchase hopefully by this time tomorrow.
Sorry for the delay in getting A Kiss So Deadly out but there were some unforeseen delays.
In the shadows of the room she waits to make her move. She watches him, calculating and wondering if he is her true love. Her life is so cold and empty without love.
If only he knew how desperately she needs him, needs his love. Teasingly, she walks across the room. The candlelight flickers romantically across the room. The setting is perfect. He is the one. She knows it…
Then she catches a glimpse of his wedding ring. He thought he had hidden it, but there it is. He is supposed to be the one. Why is he doing this to her? She can’t take another woman’s husband. When will it be her turn? What about her desires?
Anger rips through her body; rage consumes her very being. She moves swiftly, her vengeance final. Poison flows from her fangs. The rest is a blur. She will make this cheating bastard suffer just like he made her suffer. Fair is fair after all.

By the time the second body is found in a hotel room Detective Landry is fairly certain that their killer is none other than a woman. This woman is cunning. She only leaves behind clues that she wants them to find.

There is something about the woman that really gets under his skin. The woman is pure trouble, trouble he should stay away from.
Whenever they are near sparks fly. Neither are sure how long they can hold off before they give into temptation……

I let my daughter talk me into writing a book about vampires for young adults. I must admit that I actually enjoyed writing it and listening to all of her ideas.
Now that we are finishing up the second book I am finding that vampire related movies and books are quite popular right now. The SciFi channel has a new show beginning soon “Being Human” and then there is “True Blood” as well as the “Twilight” saga.
Of course now that the current book is almost done she hands me another outline. This one is not about vampires though. I think Mat and I have a future writer on our hands for sure. She loves coming up with ideas for books as well as naming characters and describing what they should look like.
