Weekend Writing Warriors – The Exorcism

I’ve joined this writing group: Weekend Writing Warriors . It is the weekly hop for everyone who loves to write! Every Sunday, share an 8 to 10 sentence snippet of your writing.

To kick off my recently published novel, Blue Ruin, I will include it as my first snippet. This snippet is from my Prologue: The Exorcism.


“Help me. Help me. Help me,” Maura prayed to her deceased father for strength. She sat in the first pew of the church – hands folded, head bowed, fear paralyzing her.

You can’t be saved, the voice whispered, its echo reverberating through her bones. She clasped her hands harder together to keep them from shaking.

What was I thinking to agree to this? Maura thought.

A brush of wind blew across her left side. She let out a long breath, exhausted from the thought of what was to come.


Blue Ruin is the first novel in The Phoenix Series. The Phoenix Series is a dark fantasy with gothic, noire, paranormal, and supernatural elements.

“A hunter and the hunted, Maura Leroux is one of the last of her kind with a dark past that has haunted her. With black magical beings having been hunted for centuries, she’s come to learn a thing or two about survival. But Adrian Wilhelm, a notorious Vampire, threatens to destroy Maura’s newfound life as a detective in the magical world of Mystics. Adrian intends to use Maura as a means of resurrecting the fallen world of black magical beings, Abysm. Maura has made it her mission to stop Adrian while covering her tracks from those that have been seeking her out for centuries.”

Blue Ruin is now available for pre-order as an e-book. Pre-order The Phoenix Series: Blue Ruin — set to release on February 29, 2016.
