Want to read about a tattoo artist who can bring her tattoos to life, and the weretiger child she adopted as her own? What about a steampunk heroine battling aliens in a world powered by steam, and the clockwork time machine that can take her anywhere?
Well, you’re in luck, for those are precisely the kinds of stories I write about in my novels FROST MOON, BLOOD ROCK, LIQUID FIRE and JEREMIAH WILLSTONE AND THE CLOCKWORK TIME MACHINE. (Guess which ones are about the tattoo artist and which one is about the steampunk heroine).
You can find my novels anywhere fine books are sold, including Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Nook, Google Books, and many many more, even Apple Books, though for that you may need one of those iThingies to search for me as it won’t seem to let me include a direct link.
But in case you wanted to know more about these books first, I’ve been writing forever, but all of them caught fire when I started on FROST MOON in National Novel Writing Month, a challenge to write 50,000 words of a new novel in the month of November. Counting the sister Camp Nanowrimo challenges in April and July, I’ve participated in Nano over two dozen times, but it all got started with a tale of magical tattoo artist Dakota Frost meeting a werewolf who wanted a tattoo before the next full moon…
FROST MOON: In an alternate Atlanta where magic is practiced openly, where witches sip coffee at local cafes, shapeshifters party at urban clubs, vampires rule the southern night like gangsters, and mysterious creatures command dark caverns beneath the city, Dakota Frost’s talents are coveted by all. She’s the best magical tattooist in the southeast, a Skindancer, able to bring her amazing tats to life.
When a serial killer begins stalking Atlanta’s tattooed elite, the police and the Feds seek Dakota’s help. Can she find the killer on the dark fringe of the city’s Edgeworld? Among its powerful outcasts and tortured loners, what kind of enemies and allies will she attract? Will they see her as an invader, as a seducer, as an unexpected champion . . . or as delicious prey?
BLOOD ROCK: Dakota Frost is back, and the ink is about to hit the fan-again.
Graffiti comes to life in the dark heart of Atlanta’s oldest cemetery, slaying one of the city’s best loved vampires before the eyes of his friend Dakota Frost. Deadly magick is at work on the city’s walls, challenging even the amazing power of Dakota’s tattoos to contain it. The hungry, graffiti magick loves to kill, and the Edgeworld is no longer safe from its own kind.
Dakota begins a harrowing journey to save those she loves and to discover the truth behind the spreading graffiti-even if that truth offends the vampires, alienates the werekin and creates police suspicion of her every action.
Saving Atlanta may cost her everything, including custody of her “adopted” weretiger daughter, Cinnamon. But failure is not an option. If the graffiti isn’t stopped, Cinnamon could be the next victim.
LIQUID FIRE: Magical tattoo artist Dakota Frost is back–fighting a fire that may burn down the world.
For millennia, ancient factions of wizards have closely guarded the secrets of liquid fire–distilled from the blood of dragons and the magical key to unbelievably powerful spells.
Now, Dakota’s flirtation with a fireweaver while visiting San Francisco engulfs her in a magicial feud. Forced to defend herself with her masterwork, a powerful dragon tattoo, Dakota becomes the target of superstitious magicians who believe she’s summoned the spirit of a dragon . . . the first step in an incredibly dangerous spell that could create more liquid fire.
Soon, Dakota finds herself caught in a magical battle between ageless wizards desperate to seize the rapidly dwindling supply of liquid fire and fireweaver terrorists who’ll stop at nothing to keep every last drop of it for themselves.
Even if that means killing Dakota.
The race is on to find the truth about liquid fire, the secret behind Dakota’s magic tattoos, and the message hidden in the fireweaver’s secret codes–before the world goes up in flames. Filled with spectacular magic, pyrotechnic action, and kinky romance, LIQUID FIRE is the action-packed third installment in the Dakota Frost, Skindancer series.
But Dakota Frost isn’t the only heroine I write about; the other star of my novels is a swashbuckling former engineer turned secret agent named Jeremiah Willstone!
