Young Adult, supernatural romantic thriller
Date Published: November 2013
Kate Archer is instantly drawn to Nick. He’s handsome, smart, and interested in her – perhaps a little too interested according to Kate’s brother. It’s a good thing Nick is interested, or Kate would have died the night of the football game. Nick may have rescued Kate, but he can’t stop the inevitable. Kate is changing; she just doesn’t know it. She can’t explain the visions and sensations affecting her body, but she can enjoy the pleasure of Nick’s kiss – that is, until she learns the real reason he is with her. Betrayed by her genetics, Kate begins a metamorphosis that forces her to confront an unseen reality and claim her true destiny.

Can you forgive someone who kills so randomly and on such a massive scale? He was the ultimate serial killer, killing for decades, centuries or perhaps millennia. What do you do with someone like that? What is a just punishment for a monster like him?

Then I met her.
At first, I didn’t know what to think. To others she was a person to avoid. To me, she held a certain appeal.
Then on my first day I heard it – the music of a piano. I had no idea how far it would take me. I definitely didn’t expect it to lead me in the world where light and dark magic battled each other….
My Heart Remembers*

I couldn’t live life without him.
Time passed and I began searching for him only to learn he had passed away.
