The guy moved over the range and handed me the knives. He couldn’t know what I could do, he was a Hunter. I was not!
I nodded and decided to play along with his little game of helping the timid mouse. At least, that’s how I felt until now. I pretended to act clumsy with holding only four knives and watched as he instructed me to hold them his way.
“If you’ll put the butt of the knife in your palms and position your body just right to angle them down the range,” he said demonstrating now. I watched with the best eager expression I could conjure so it seemed I was very interested in what he had to say. I added nodding in the right places. His face showed he was enjoying this. I sideways glanced at some of the faces watching, even from the other ranges. Tall, fair and handsome was putting on a show and everyone was enjoying his art and my newness. I say fair because it certainly described his appearance but not his whole package. Something dark lurked inside. Maybe just a secret or two, but hidden. It loomed like a cloud above him, making his appearance that of a villain.
I waited very patiently to let him finish. When he stepped back and threw two knives they hit the yellow inner circle, but not the very center. Everyone gave an outward praising sigh for his ego and he peacocked up to the challenge. He turned and walked by brushing my bare shoulder with his fingertips where the sleeves ended and whispered, “Just give it a try.” Something electric jolted into my arm and hightailed it through my entire body. Something electric and unnameable.
I nodded with no readable expression. I was good at that too. But he’d felt it too. And his face showed it.
One step further up the range I steadied knowing every eye near and most others had stopped to watch. In fact, the echo within the gym was getting vastly quiet fast. I held the knives the way I, a left-handed and skilled since the age of five fighter, had learn to hold them from my father many years ago. I stopped a mere three steps before the wooden barrier where I’d always left the space I needed to torque my body just the perfect angle to release my knives into a target. Only having to toss four was a cake walk.
I positioned just right, let out my breath like so, relaxed my arms, and…hesitated. Yes, I hesitated. They wanted me to fail! I hid my fear by doing the opposite. I’ll give my opponent something to remember me by. I cocked my head, gave my cold green eyes to my enemy, and didn’t intend to blink once until it was all over.
Sucking in my breath, and with my only drawback, my vocal cords, I let out a smooth, swooping motion in a blur of two seconds flat, landing all four smack inside the center of the target. My eyes never left his face.

Anastacia Anat Hathown is the Valkyrie princess to her own supernatural faction and next in line to lead. Motherless at birth, she sets out to rescue her twin brother from the long time enemies, the Hunters. In fact, all of the factions agreed long ago to be silent enemies, but things have changed. When Anastacia meets another who is marked like her, gets a visit from her dead mother, and meets up with known enemies who profess to follow her if she “follows the destiny” her mother reveals, she has to make decisions in her young life that will affect not just the supernatural factions, but all who exist in this world.
So I went to Nashville for a little R&R/book research/picture taking. Loved the Parthenon. LOVED Athena. Wow! Go Percy!
Hayes Under is back! And he is hot, fired up, and ready to keep the girl he loves no matter the cost.
Over Darkness (Under Chronicles, #2)
Book Release March, 2014
Check out book 2 of the Under Chronicles! Hell is the fire and brimstone world you thought it was. Look who’s running it now!
Kali Styx was sent to a boarding school across the country where she knows absolutely no one, but goes because she is determined to be with her own kind. Things are going well at first. She has friends. Classes are fun until strange things start happening. They have always happened, her friends say. But she’s the first to say anything about it. Or so she thought.
Her father is the dean. Her mother whom she never met…dead. She was told she was the product of half human/half angel with the strongest power to rule over her future if she gets control of her powers. But with so many lies starting to come alight at the Styx Gifted Institute where her father seemingly holds all the cards, she can’t help but ask why she was really brought here.
Hayes Under, the darkly wicked level ten in her class has his say in her life on a daily basis whether it’s nice or not. He has the ability to block her famous spells and get under her skin at every turn. Webb Travis, who seems so angry all the time, has the same abilities and no one else seems to notice the way he hides it.
They are both the same in some way, yet so different. Webb was sent to keep her safe. Hayes was brought up from birth with the sole purpose to cage her into her father’s web. She knows none of this.
Her father is not a warlock like she thought for so many years. He is not an angel either. He is…the angel. He is one they call Lucifer. And he’s here on earth to watch over his own until she accepts her reign and takes her place with him. She’s not to come alone and daddy has the one he wants already picked out.
Hayes is your all around boy next door, NOT! He is anything but…under the cover of night he is someone else altogether. Webb is determined to save her from something she does not know exists yet. He cares, that much is obvious. Kali is not going to let any of these guys see her sweat. They fool the rest, but not her. How will she elude Hayes? Capture Webb? And defy “daddy”?
