Excerpt:

I’m not sure when I became the villain of my story. But I’m now quite certain that this is exactly what I’ve become. It is no more clear to me as I stand atop a destroyed car park looking over my home. The smoke from still smouldering buildings billow off into the distance, almost writing my name into the skyline, but I do not care. It is no more than a grim signature of the suffering that I’ve caused to those around me. My name is Devon Wills and I am a mage.

Excerpt:

Young Foday Jenkins spied a curious sign at the far end of the concourse. The seven-year-old weaved his way through the hurrying travellers with their trolley-loads of suitcases. There were airline pilots and cabin crew walking briskly towards their international flights and armed police strolling like fortress watch guards. A rainbow glistened in the eastern sky beyond the floor-to-ceiling glass walls, watched in wonder by the frustrated passengers whose flights had been delayed by the ferocious summer storm. A charcoal wash of lightning-filled rain clouds shrouded the distant city outline.
Foday arrived at the sign. It was a matchstick man or woman kneeling, praying. Beneath it there was an entrance of two heavily frosted glass doors. He pushed them open and stepped inside. When the doors closed behind him there was a nice silence. He was in a room, maybe twice the size of his classroom, but it seemed so much bigger because there were sacred symbols from all over the world and holy words on the walls and little statues, and it wasn’t brightly lit in here like outside, yet it wasn’t so dim that it was scary. The duskiness made you look. There was a lovely smell in the air, the scent of a faraway country.
There was a row of electric burning candles that could be switched on for a handful of coins. There were six happy photographs of teenagers from all over the world tacked to the wall above the electric candles. One of the happy faces looked like his older sister Ameyo. She smiled that way. Uh-me-yo. This is how Mummy said it. There were handwritten notes stuck around the photographs with words like Please remember. Foday wondered if the person who wrote one of them had been crying because the ink was smudged.
On a cloth-covered table there was a visitor’s book. Foday wrote his name and address: Foday, 19 Bletchley Avenue, London NW22, UK, Europe, The World. He added I really like this place.
Over on the other side of the church, tucked around a corner, there was a wooden playhouse. A sign outside the door read: If you want a priest to hear your confession, press the button.
Foday turned nervously when he heard the loud sounds of the bustling concourse as the church doors opened. He could see a silhouetted figure against the gleaming frosted glass. The figure focused into a heavy man walking down between the seats. He stopped, agitated and sweating.
‘Are you lost?’ the man asked.
Foday knew he shouldn’t talk to strangers.
‘Where’s your mummy or daddy? Are they with the priest? Are you alone?’ he asked crossly.
Foday pressed the button requesting a priest to take confession.

Excerpt:

I ran towards the front door and he slammed it shut just before I got there. I crouched down and snarled. “What do you want?”

He started to snarl back at me and then shook his head. “I just want to talk.”

I growled again. “Who sent you? How’d you find me?”

“What are you talking about? No one sent me. You ran off before I could even talk to you. Now just calm down.”

I felt the pressure of a strange magic, like an arm reaching out to hug me and gave in. I let the magic envelope me in a warm hug and gasped in surprise when the magic calmed me. I had never felt a dominant use magic to calm before. It was surprisingly nice, but it didn’t make me trust him any. I backed away from him until I stood against the back door, still cautious. It was obvious that I couldn’t run away from him, so I might as well calm down and think while he talked. “What do you want?”

He sat down cross-legged in the middle of my living room floor. “I just want to talk.”

It felt odd to be standing when a dominant was sitting, but I wanted to be able to run if I needed to. “Talk.”

Excerpt:

Chapter 1

The doors to Desert Community Hospital slid open with a whoosh. It was a sound Dr. Lila Emerson heard countless times each shift, so she didn’t bother to look up, focusing instead on completing a written proposal for the concussion and sports safety program she hoped to institute at the local high school. Another forty-five minutes and she would have it completed, and be on her way home to the bottle of Cabernet and warm bath that promised to soothe her tired body after a hectic week. She couldn’t wait.

“Stitch.” Jester’s booming voice bellowed through the lobby. “We need you, girl! Gumby’s face is all busted up.”

Lila groaned. Again? Perhaps the man needed a new nickname. Gumby didn’t seem fitting, considering the number of times his body cracked.

Members of the No Prisoners motorcycle club had burst into the lobby of the emergency room. She could always tell the moment they came through the doors, even without the inevitable we’re here announcement made by Jester. There was a change in the energy of the room: a charge of fear and distrust from some, a nervous respect from others, and a buzz of sexual energy from all the testosterone they seemed to emit. There was a strong possibility she was the only one who noticed that last point.

Jester led the pack of two leather-clad, boot-wearing men as they tromped through the waiting room, and up to the admissions desk. Silence descended as the patients awaiting treatment gaped at the intimidating duo. Jester was a mountain of a man, topping out at no less than six foot five inches, and probably weighed close to three hundred pounds of solid muscle. He had the body type of a serious weight lifter, and could have been one, for all she knew about him. Both arms boasted full sleeves of tattoos, and additional ink peeked out from the collar of his T-shirt. Jester’s dark brown hair was long, past his shoulders, and thick, though usually contained in a ponytail at the base of his neck. He was a formidable figure, and not someone she’d want to meet in a back alley at night, despite his apparent jovial demeanor.

He reached the admissions desk, and braced his meaty hands on the counter. The action placed him directly above poor Anna, the middle aged receptionist who worked the night shift. She had to tilt her head way back to meet Jester’s fierce gaze.

Interview:

How many books do you currently have published?
As of now, Striker is the first book I’ve published. Jester, the second book in the No Prisoners MC series, is available for pre-order, and goes live on November first!

Are you currently working on a book? Will this be your next release?
Right now, I’m working on Acer’s story. His will be the third book in the No Prisoners series. There isn’t a release date yet, but I anticipate early 2017.

What do you enjoy most about writing?
I’m a daydreamer, plotter, fantasizer, whatever you’d like to call it. My mind is constantly dreaming up stories and characters. What I enjoy most about writing, is bringing those stories to life and sharing them with others.

Do you ever get writer’s block? If so, how do you deal with it?
I haven’t experienced true writer’s block as of yet, but there are times when I get stuck writing a scene. The words don’t flow the way I want, or I’m just not satisfied with the scene. What I’ve found works best, is if I walk away from the computer for a while. My mind never completely lets the scene go, and after some time spent thinking it through—without feeling the pressure of the computer staring at me—I’m able to push past it.

Have you ever had one of your characters to take a twist you weren’t expecting and surprise you?
I have! Problem is, if I tell you now, I’ll spoil a future story.

Do you have any extras you’d like to share, like a teaser about an upcoming new release, a summary of a deleted scene, or a teaser about a surprising plot twist or character?
Look for the audio version of Striker in the next few weeks. It’s narrated by Noah Michael Levine, who won the 2016 Audie Award for Best Erotica Audiobook. He did an amazing job, and I can’t wait until everyone can listen to the book!

Now it’s time to get to know you! What are some of your favorite books to read?
The Fatal series by Marie Force is my hands down favorite series. It has everything I love: complex characters, steamy love scenes, suspense, and intrigue.

What about television shows? Movies?
I’m a huge Game of Thrones nerd. A few other shows that top my list are Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, and Shameless.
