My latest work is a re-release of an early one whose contract expired. A 17-year-old girl, passionate about her Welsh mountain pony and the trainer Wynn, wakes one morning to find both of them gone. Her words of bitterness and betrayal are something like this: “Now there is only an empty field where wild ponies ran.”
The title is WHERE WILD PONIES RAN, here:
Kindle US goo.gl/47MuEU
Kindle UK goo.gl/h3dkli
And it remains my favorite of all the works I’ve written.

My next release is Claimed by the Vampire, Seduced by the Werewolf.
Before that it had at least twenty other names. I needed something that encompassed the story and gave readers a hint of the sexy, life or death dilemma that Tempest, the heroine faced.
Before that it had been Fangs, Claws and Magic. No good, since the Fangs could have belonged to a werewolf not a vampire. Since it features a spell book written by Hades, I thought of Hell’s Spells. That didn’t tell the reader much. However, when I write a follow up, that’s a great series title.
Melodrama came next – The Blood Drinker, the Witch and the Beast. No. Not happening. Desperate, I turned to Shakespeare, but Much ado about Tempest? Really? I was going from bad to worse.
Finally, I settled on the obvious. Fortunately, by editor and publisher, Loose id, liked it. So, my book is Claimed by the Vampire, Seduced by the Werewolf. It’s available on pre-order now. http://www.loose-id.com/claimed-by-the-vampire-seduced-by-the-werewolf.html
