My short story is “The Iris,” a sexy paranormal romance set in Hogback.

Book 1: The Vampire of Waller County
What if a single injection could turn humans into vampires? And what if that drug fell into the hands of a devious man bent on creating his own army of monsters?
Dr. Jim Samuels sets his sights on the sleepy town of Hogback, North Carolina, tucked into the picturesque foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. He’s counting on finding the kind of simple-minded fools he needs to execute his plan, but he’s dead wrong.
When Nathan Waller interferes with the doctor’s evil scheme, he puts everyone he loves in danger. Can he save sweet Holly McReady in time? Can he step up to be the hero of Waller County? Can he do it in wet pajamas and Big Foot slippers?
Halloween in Hogback will never be the same, and neither will Nathan Waller.
Such a great start to this series! The prose is almost poetic, it is so beautiful. The story of sweet Nathan will hook you from the start. Can’t wait for the next installment! –Mel C on Amazon
