THE MALEVOLENT TWIN

SAGE 2

“The Malevolent Twin” is the story of a wayward wicked twin with destructive intentions. Avery Tran is ordinary in every way except one: her friend Venice. Since she was a young girl Avery was the only one who could see Venice. Avery would describe her as her own alter ego. As Avery got older, Venice began to appear in front of Avery wearing obscene clothing, mocking and harassing her for her frumpy style and average looks Eventually, Avery started to wonder what Venice truly was.

Usually imaginary friends leave after childhood is over. Her curiosity leads her to an abandoned ancient mobile home, where her parents had buried a stillborn, then to a wise old exorcist who failed to successfully exorcise Venice, then finally to a quirky middle aged psychic. All the trouble starts when Avery wakes up in a swinger’s club.

Having no recollection of how she ended up there, Avery starts to think it is Venice’s doing, after discovering herself dressed and made up to look like Venice. Soon after, a neighbor’s dog goes missing and a murder scene appears at her work place. Avery confronts Venice about these heinous acts and learns what she already suspected: it was Venice, controlling her body, who had committed the crimes.

Frantic to stop Venice, Avery starts to handcuff herself to the bed and searches for a way to rid herself of Venice entirely. The quirky psychic, Pennie Apples, helps her figure out what is really going on, but it comes too late. Venice murders someone very close to Avery, who feels obliged to turn herself in. In the end, Avery learns a lesson about what happens when the imaginary abruptly becomes very real.

The Quiet Storm

AUSTIN 2

 

The handsome stranger Randee Ellis hires might shield her from the dark plot against her Montana ranch, but can he protect her heart from his past?

A Rising Wind

Ripped from the rugged yet majestic Madison Valley, the Triple Creek ranch is a tribute to both the Ellis family’s dreams and the beauty of the land. It is everything to thirty-year-old Randee, even more important than children of her own. But while she and her uncle have managed the work since her parents’ death, this year it will be harder. Almost all the nearby ranches have been compromised, and a sinister plot is on the rise.

She hires the stranger against her better judgment. There’s no question he’s the handsomest would-be cowhand that ever lived, but Chase Gregory is a city slicker—and she’s been fooled before. No matter how much he makes her long for things she thought forever abandoned, until Chase admits who and what he is, and what he’s running from, there’s no way she can trust him…let alone love him, as her soul demands. A mixture of danger, despair and desire lurks behind those blue eyes and that winning smile, and Randee has yet to learn which way the storm will break.

AUSTIN 4

When I was in my early twenties I noticed that my grandmother spent her spare time reading romance novels, I asked her why she had chosen the genre. She explained that they allowed her to fall in love with handsome men without pissing grandpa off.

I read my first romance novel that year and have been reading ever since. During my grandmother’s last illness, I read to her and in those months I decided to write romances. I thought if I can help someone escape for a couple of hours from the pain or boredom in their lives, or help them see and feel a world of love and beauty that would be a worthwhile contribution to humanity.

My message in each of my books is hope. Hope that there’s someone just right for each of us. Hope that even in our darkest hour there is light just around the corner. And hope that even if life circumstances keep you from a great relationship, you can dream and love and smile.
