Hoodoo-influenced Southern Louisiana seems like the perfect place for Camille to relocate and escape her abusive past. She didn’t expect to fall in love and plummet herself into the world of Amaranth, a place of exile for reformed vampires.

Thanks to her deadly vampire ex-boyfriend, she’s confronted with decisions that not only threaten her life but the lives of her inhuman friends that she has come to love. Entangled in her friends’ quest for freedom, she dives into their realm and faces the threats of the ruler of Amaranth—the mother of all vampires—and her own inner demons.

Semper (New Eden Book 1)

Semper (New Eden Book 1)

Product Description

Three hundred years after nuclear war destroyed most of the Earth, Southshaw exists as a lush oasis in a desolate, charred world steeped in radiation. The Ancients were able to keep out the mutants and preserve Southshaw's mountain valley, establishing a peaceful and thriving community built on faith and simplicity of life. Technology is forbidden, as the pursuit of knowledge is believed to have led to the nuclear apocalypse twelve generations ago. It is Semper's duty to manage the community and provide spiritual leadership to Southshaw's citizens.

Dane is in line to become the thirteenth Semper of Southshaw. On the eve of his sixteenth birthday, however, he finds that the ghost stories from his childhood and the frightening tales of mutants in the north are not just legends. But the legends are not entirely true, either. And suddenly he's faced with a choice he never expected to make: should he take his place as Semper, obeying his cruel uncle and twelve generations of Southshaw Truth, or should he follow his heart and risk exile and death to unearth the real truth? An exotic huntress, a mythical ghost-man, and a tailor's daughter hold the keys to his answer. And to the survival of Southshaw--and possibly all of humanity--itself.

"It's Not My Mountain Anymore"

"It's Not My Mountain Anymore"

Product Description

It’s Not My Mountain Anymore is my story of growing up in a seventh generation Appalachian family. It invites you into an intimate tale of a bygone era of sweet simplicity, the closeness of family, our ties to the land and the ways of a people who knew how to make life work under any condition.

My Appalachian people are from a hard working stock of Scots Irish who lived in harmony with the gifts of nature. Our heritage was woven from respect for the fact that these mountains had the power to give or take life and that if you lived in balance with these hills, their bounty always proved to be plentiful. Mountain folks were provided for and had all we needed to thrive from using the skills passed down from generation to generation.

The second part of this book was written to alert readers that this quickly vanishing culture of Appalachia is being robbed from the People of the Other Side, the Appalache Indians words to describe those of us who call Appalachia home.

I wrote It’s Not My Mountain Anymore to share a disappearing Appalachian lifestyle that I once knew and loved as a child growing up in the mountains of North Georgia. The rich farm land that had fed generations of my family has become a land developer’s dream. 

Mountain land is a money- generating giant. Many old homesteads have vanished, and with their disappearance, our culture is ripped away with it. Strange tracks from heavy earth moving equipment tear out the heart of our mountains to make way for progress. Whitetail deer trails disappear. Sweet water springs vanish. Eagles are evicted from high places. Scenes of untamed beauty are replaced with towering, elegantly-designed houses dotting ridges like spots on a leopard.

Giant ranges I once called my own to roam and explore began to shrink as new owners established boundaries with No Trespassing signs and security gates. Our homeland became a playground for the rich, whose garage is worth more than our homes.

Dad once said, “Th’ time will come when you’ll have t’ lock your barn at night.” That time has come.

My hope for future generations is that they determine that the mountains' destiny is in their hands.

Mountain hospitality needs no formal invitation. Pull up a chair and light the lamp, learn all you can about disappearing Appalachia. When a culture is gone, it’s gone.

My family, friends and I are honored to share a journey filled with love, humor, appreciation and respect with you.
