An Abigail Collins’ Day Dream…

I sat in front of my computer, swiveling from side to side in my chair. I had vacation hours that needed to be used, but I couldn’t decide where I wanted to go. Summertime normally consisted of murders, haunted houses, and werewolves, just like any other time of the year, but now was the perfect time for me to get away. Beach packages covered my browser window, taunting me with pictures of blue oceans and white sand. I could already feel the sand tickling my feet with the cool waves of the ocean teasing my toes as I drank in the silence around me.

I closed my eyes, imagining sitting on the beach with a cold drink in my hand. Maybe I could find a place that had ocean side drink services provided by shirtless men. If I listened hard enough I could hear the waves crashing against the shore. The sounds in my imagination drowned out the sirens and hustle of the people downtown. The salt in the air would replace the smell of rotting bodies in the summer time and I highly doubted that explosions happened often on the beach. The sounds of the beach would soothe my tired soul. It was exactly what I needed. I opened my eyes and looked back at the packages the vacation company offered. My hand hesitated over the mouse to confirm what I wanted. Murders could still happen on the beach, sirens lived in the oceans, and enemies could be found anywhere…maybe it would be safer to stay home for the summer.

NMBM_cover Explosions, body parts, and black magic are all part of Abby Collins’ typical day. As the top Paranormal Investigation Bureau agent, she only gets the best cases, but when the Cult of Ra comes to play she might be in over her head. Finding a murderer while up against a hex, an overprotective coven, and a stubborn werewolf reminds her that nothing in the paranormal world is easy. As the death toll rises and a decades old crime, linked to Abby, is uncovered, disturbing information is brought to light. Abby must unlock an ancient language steeped in black magic to uncover the truth before the murderer comes for her.

  1. Where do you get your inspiration from?

    • I find inspiration pretty much anywhere, there’s a couple head nods in this series to some of my favorite authors. (most notably there’s a nod to Janet Evanovich) but as for all of the writing, music keeps me going and so does just the love of writing. There’s not just one thing that inspires me.
