Remember the book that got you hooked on new series? The characters drew you in and all you could think was what happens next. Now do you remember your first kiss? The rush of hormones as you try to remember how to breathe and stand, yep it’s a great feeling. Now let me combine them for you in the Chrysalis series where you meet Oscar and Ellie, a New Adult Paranormal Series. New Adult is a wonderful genre where you get the joy of firsts that happen in Young Adult combine with the grown up issues, language and sexual content found in traditional Adult genres.
“I need you to let me give you something. Please don’t object, but I think you need a good luck kiss. I’m sure you will perform perfectly if I give this to you. Are you willing to let me test my theory?”
My heart was pounding my lips ached for his touch. They tingled, as I hoped for a long, strong kiss. I nodded slightly, closed my eyes and tilted my head up. His free hand gently stroked back a stray hair from my face, then he cupped my head. His thumb stroked my cheekbone. I felt him lean down slowly, my lips burned. I could feel his breath, as he brought his lips closer to mine.
Now for the best part…Rebel Ink Press decided to celebrate my unconventional series and the anniversary of it’s release. On Amazon for two days only, April 17th and 18th, book one is just $0.99…yep less than a buck.
In the annals of dysfunctional families, the Chisholm’s are working their way to the top. Drug abuse, an unwed mother with multiple fathers, and the questionable cash flow for the ‘pretty one’. All this from a seemingly normal, two parent middle class family. But were the choices truly made of their free will?
Bad choices are a Chisholm family trait, one that confounds the youngest child, Ellie, who’s trying to separate herself by making smart decisions. And falling for Oscar Jeffreys, the hottest guy at school, would be number one on the list of Chisholm family disasters. Yet the crazy part is it’s not a one sided attraction. Somehow Ellie has caught Oscar Jeffreys’ eye. Sure she could see the barriers between them. Race, age, popularity. They were at opposite ends of the spectrum. But a demon set to destroy her family? She can’t see that.
Oscar provides security and acceptance Ellie never imagined she deserved. As the passion of first love grows, Ellie honestly believes she has a chance to beat the odds and live a happy, normal life. Then her world collapses around her. With the help of a guardian angel, Ellie learns of a world that has unknowingly surrounded her for years. And she’ll have to find strength buried deep inside to save not only her future, but flush out and stop the demon in her midst.
And Ellie will have to learn that sometimes the hardest lesson about growing up is accepting that you’re worth more.
When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.-Corinthians 13:11
There comes a time in everyone’s life when they must put aside their childish ways. In the past year, Ellie Chisholm has fallen into the security of her relationship with Oscar Jeffreys, emerging with a stronger sense of herself. BUt now Ellie’s mother has started inserting herself into Ellie’s life, treating her as if she were a child even though Ellie has begun to make very adult decisions for her future. Having finally consummated her relationship with Oscar, Ellie learns the powers inside of her stretch further than vaporizing demons.
Maria, the demon bent on revenge, has been reigned in by God but that doesn’t stop her from disrupting and threatening those around Ellie and Oscar.

Ellie must help her family achieve positive change and finally break the tie between her mother and Gaap or risk losing everyone she loves.

Not Even Death-Available Summer 2013 from Rebel Ink Press
In one tragic moment Ellie Jeffreys’ perfect life ended and the devastation of losing the only man she believed she could ever love and their beautiful child, causes the hopeless resignation that life shall never again be worth living.
Bound by a decree from On High, the demons who tormented Ellie for years have had to leave the Jeffreys alone, but they grow restless, sensing Ellie’s despair and vulnerability. They lust for her. And they’re extremely resourceful.
Dr. Luke Page’s inability to save Ellie’s husband and son has him hoping to recover her crumbling mind and show her love does still exist in the world. Dr. Page feels immense pressure to be her security blanket in the concrete world, but thoroughly healing her presents a challenge that raises questions about his ability as both a physician and a human being.
Ellie’s depression now leaves her susceptible to the vengeful demons. In the past the sheer strength of Oscar’s love and devotion fortified a barrier around Ellie, shielding her from the effects of the world’s iniquities. Will Luke’s love be enough to rise to the challenge of protecting her? Or will Oscar’s become like a phoenix letting not even mortality stand its way?
