Small snippet from SEDITIOUS

Tabbruis was assigned to make her divulge information about Lord Cromwell while using sexual attraction and flirtation to get her defenses down.

Tabbruis could not understand how he was duped by the woman in front of him. She was not one tenth the beauty Charmeine was. His arms ached to hold his wife, touch her belly and feel Baby Hunter under his hand. He closed his eyes and whispered a prayer, “God please give me another chance with my wife. Our two hearts are lost and cannot resume beating unless we are together. I was a fool, Lord. She is the only woman I have ever loved.”

He opened his eyes and looked at Bathsheba. He thought, This was not love. I was never in love with her. Our relationship was something sick, dark and Evil, contrived by Lucifer himself!

All of a sudden, he felt a prick on his neck. He turned to find Bathsheba in front of him with her fangs exposed.

Tabbruis wanted to kill her right where she stood!

His eyes became black on the outside with green pinpoints in the middle. The eye change was not from desire, but from anger! He took a breath and resigned himself with the task he must do to make sure his family was safe.

“Bathsheba, I cannot believe you are alive,” he whispered as he closed his eyes and hugged her. “Why are you here?” He held her face an inch away and trembled with fury. He used all his strength not to destroy her on the spot, and thought, Control Tabbruis, you have to get information from her.

He clenched his teeth and wanted to slap the smile off her face. With his composure recovered, he asked, “Are you hungry Bathsheba? You must be. Let us go and get some refreshment.”

“I would like you to come here.” She sat down on the bed, and patted a spot beside her. With a flip of her long black hair, she flirted, “Tell me what you have been up to, Tabbruis. Where is that fat woman? She was very impressive. The Witch held me without even touching me.”

“Yes, I know, but she is not here now. She became angry, because I stayed by your bedside waiting for you to awaken. You know the type, very jealous?” He was glad Bathsheba did not know about all of Charmeine’s powers. 


Bathsheba was pure evil…

a great character to write for! 


Why do I write?

I couldn’t get this nagging story out of my head.

Books 1 to 3Weekend before Thanksgiving in 2011, I began to write and couldn’t stop. I didn’t sleep for 48 hours. In a week, I had over 100,000 words.

Not being a novelist or a writer, I asked my husband what qualified as a novel. He laughed, “Honey, you have yourself not only a novel, but a series of novels.”

The first three books, Charmeine, Mactus, and Accendo, were simple to write.

Writing the next three novels in The Light-Bearer Series was pretty much the same way with Seditious, Ransom, and Conundrum.

People I meet, and my colleagues at work, can’t believe I’m a writer.  It doesn’t become real to them until they see my business card or the book I have handy.

If I could have a dime for all the times I’ve heard, “How did you come up with the idea?” I would be able to pay off my school loan!

But really, do you have to know?


You just have to make the story come to life for yourself and your readers.

It doesn’t matter a hill of beans to me that The Light-Bearer Series is Fantasy and Paranormal.

The characters are what mattered the most to me… Charmeine, Tabbruis, Shane, Dmitri, Neal Thomas etc., nothing else did. I wanted to do right by them. I wanted to give the reader an exact account of how moody Tabbruis can get, and how silly Charmeine’s jokes are.

11-5-2013-9-31-32-am1The Light-Bearer Series centers around two very star-crossed, opposites . . . Tabbruis is a Blood-Hunter who meets Charmeine, who is a Light-Bearer.

The two races are supposed to have a deep-seeded hatred of each other.

However, when Tabbruis and Charmeine meet, they are anything but repulsed and struggle to stay together.

I have to confess, there are two characters in The Light-Bearer Series which are very easy to write for because they are part of me — Charmeine, (heroine) for her faith, acceptance and kindness, and Tabbruis, (hero) for always looking on the darker side from years of being lonely and too much into his self. All the other characters have little aspects of my psyche and beliefs.

How do I make fantasy sound on the fringe of believable?

imagesCA5VWRBNSandraNo one is going to believe my fantasy world exists at the Castle Charmeine, if I don’t have an edge of common facts and beliefs.

Two of my characters are Shane and Sandra, who served in the US War in Iraq. The couple needed to have those skills and characteristics learned in the US Army and being in harm’s way for extended period.

I guess for me, being a fantasy writer is a joy, because the writing can go wherever your mind tells it to.

I do include Heavenly and Hellish aspects in my books. However, the novels are not about religion. It is about love . . . acceptance and steadfast.

I know that the genre of Paranormal Romance is not everyone’s cup of tea.

I’m not going to say I don’t care if people read my book or not.

However, it only takes one . . .

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI’m always wondering what people think about my little Paranormal Family at the Castle Charmeine.

I don’t usually read reviews.

I just keep my head above water and use my friends for support.

YOU, MY FRIENDS, are my lifelines!

Lots of love, Emily
