The first line of the first book I had published – The Deep End…

My morning swim doesn’t usually involve corpses.

The opening lines of my paranormal WIP Sanctuary

“Don’t be ridiculous, Sam.”

“I’m not. I just think that zombies have undergone more of a transformation over the years.” Squabbling with Clive was the highlight of my day.

The vampire drummed his long fingers on the tabletop. “Speed only,” he said, exasperation coloring his tone.

Perched on a stool behind the bar, I sipped my hot tea while Clive sat at a table across from me, pretending to read. I scanned the bar, checking if anyone needed a refill, but it was a ruse. Clive’s eyes drew me like a zombie to brains.

Congratulations Ladies!
