Fatal Obsession


After a hot weekend with a mysterious woman, Damien Chan did not expect to get a frightened phone call from her, begging him to save–what? who? The call is cut before she says it. The next thing he knows, he’s become obsessed with finding her and saving her from the man that had led to their first meeting. But he never expected to find her in his cousin Dale Carson’s house… as his wife!
She finds out her nightmares are actually memories of her past life… the life of a murderer. Could she truly be the deranged Ellsa Jabari who’d almost added her own sister Ellie to the list of people she’s killed?
Amnesia can be a real bitch!

The Doom of Undal
The Dragon Court has ruled Tiamut uncontested for millennia,
bringing knowledge and prosperity to all.
Yet all is not as it seems—far to the West in the land of
Undal, mightiest of the nations, the Royal Queen and her children are struck
with a mysterious illness and perish. Was the Dragon Court responsible?
Or had the Queen had been experimenting with dark magic?
Her grieving son, trained in the dark arts by the goddess
Eris herself, swears vengeance.  When he defies the Dragon Court and
they rescind their blessing on his royal house, he must turn to his mother’s
experiments and ancient blood rituals to achieve his aims.  In his quest
for truth he will become the greatest threat Tiamut has ever known.
With details pulled directly from Plato (yes, THAT Plato), The Emerald Tablets of Thoth, Sumerian and Egyptian mythology, The Doom of Undal tells the story of the Fall of Atlantis.

Serpent Priestess of the Annunaki

The Annunaki on Nibiru lack precious metals, stones and minerals, which they desire, food on Nibiru is also running low. Their solution: establish a colony on a distant planet teeming with wildlife and vegetation. When the Annunaki discover they are ill equipped to labor under the harsh conditions found on Earth, they create a workforce called humans, a hybrid manufactured from their DNA and a species known as hominid.

The Serpent Priestess Ninkha and her husband Lord Enki are charged with this task, battling not only the challenges faced adjusting to life on Earth, but Enki’s brother, Enlil, as well. Will the humans live as Enki and Ninkha envisioned–able to learn, create and above all, reason? Or will they subjugate themselves to Enlil and his rule willingly?

At stake is the future of the Priestesses of Damuth, who, along with their serpents, service the Annunaki with their own blood, providing those who partake of the cocktail of blood and venom the ultimate in achieving a higher state of consciousness, along with youth, vigour and longevity. If Enlil, whose disdain of them is well-known, wins, what will happen to them?

To protect themselves and their descendants they form the ‘Dragon Court’, but is it enough?

Serpent Priestesses or Witches, Gods or Demons, Aliens or Ancestors, Oppressors or Creators?

Perhaps all of the above…………..

And They Lived Happily Ever After….

These days, before a publisher signs an author, the author must show that the story has a ‘happily ever after’ ending. Why is this? Because books with happily ever after endings sell better, that’s what readers want. No one wants to read a book where the hero and heroine fall in love, live happily and then dies in the end- it’s depressing! Readers want to live vicariously through books and they don’t want the love of their lives, their soul mates to die in the end- it’s heartbreaking!

Women want to be Olivia an ill-repute actress in a torrid illicit love affair with Jasper, Lord Saxton the future Duke who then proposes marriage without giving his father’s threats a second thought in His Wicked Heart by Darcy Burke, or Taylor who spends a week with Dominic at a resort in an effort to get pregnant and in the end ends up with both the baby and the man in Irresistible Forces by Brenda Jackson. They don’t want to be a widow, standing at her soul mate’s graveside reminiscing about their happy moments before he was either shot, or killed in a freak car crush!

They want to be swept off their feet and made love to until their toes curl by a caring and loving Adonis because so far, their love and sex lives in the real world have been disappointing. (And only to be fair, I don’t think men can live up to the sexual masters and perfect boyfriends/husbands described in some books). Also, readers envy the fact that their problems aren’t solved in the few hours it takes them to read that book, or that those same problems don’t get resolved and end the fairy tale manner they do in books. And once that kiss, or smile or touch or the image of their love child crawling around their feet in the last scene signifying the end of a beautiful love story, it means the characters will be happy and in love forever after the words ‘The End’.

I believe our need to have happily ever after ending is because we’ve already been conditioned to believe that, that’s how a love story should end and therefore expect it. By conditioning I mean that all the fairy tales we’ve read or watched as children had this poor, abused and timid girl who was saved from her horrible life by a strong, courageous, handsome, rich and assertive prince and they dance in a beautiful ballroom to celebrate their love.

And if you take a hard look at the romance books produced now, here is that ‘Cinderella and Prince Charming’ element. The man is usually a billionaire CEO of an International company with the body of a Norse god ever lusted after by women who go weak in the knees when he smiles, is Prince Charming. And Cinderella is a beautiful, strong and yet vulnerable and naive ‘nobody’ with little to her name until that fateful chance meeting that changes her whole world. Her story ends with her marrying the billionaire Norse god and she finally becomes ‘somebody’ with the world at her feet. An example of a Cinderella story is Ocean’s Between Us by Helen Scott Taylor.

In truth as much as I’m sure many other authors don’t like it, if you expect to get a publishing contract, no matter the fiction genre slap a happily ever after to the ending of your book. And if you don’t want to, you may be lucky to find a publisher who’ll publish your book as is, if not get ready to self-publish (which sometimes works for some authors).
