Fantasy vs. Reality in the Paranormal Worlds of this Romance Author

A paranormal world is a fictional universe that can include creatures such as vampires, werewolves, shifters, magic, or anything considered fantasy. A fantasy deals, in part or in whole, with information or events that are not factual, but rather imaginary.

Reality is the state of things as they actually exist, rather than as they may appear or might be imagined. Reality includes everything that has existed, exists, or will exist.


Maybe my heroes/heroines are fictional characters, but the emotions they experience are real.  Love is a real emotion of personal attachment, a virtue that represents human kindness, compassion, and affection.  
 
So…does that mean my stories are Real Fantasy?  J
 
Perhaps…

The goal of my stories is to transport the reader to another world and have them discover, or rediscover “love.”  As my characters struggle to deal with their internal battles, they discover their soul mates…that one person who turns the bad into good. And so I strive to take readers out of their everyday lives to new heights…unusual worlds…that can only be found in the written words.

And I hope I accomplish that in The Síoraí Legacy books.

A little bit about the series…

In Irish Gaelic, Síoraí means eternal, and that’s the fictitious premise behind The Síoraí Legacy which begins in 500 B.C. Alba – Neolithic Scotland.

The gods of the Tuatha Dé Danann have imprisoned their Fomorian enemy, Ághmach, and his Vampryss succubus, Deidra Sidhe, successfully stopping them from feeding from the blood of innocent humans.

But an ancient Oracle foresees Deidra's escape and warns the gods to prepare for her return. They must choose four guardians from the essences of unborn babes. When the time comes, those selected must lose everything and everyone that makes the human to become immortal warriors and stop the evil Vampryss from releasing Ághmach from his prison in the Underworld.

Check out the stories of the first two guardians, Fallon (Echoes of Darkness) and Cameron (Touch of Darkness) as they struggle to rediscover love and save the world.

Passionate Cooks Free Recipes

Food and love have had a long association, for Passionate Cooks: Free Recipes From Today’s Hottest Romance Authors, over 150 authors of the genre have put their pens and computers aside to don aprons, get down and dirty in the kitchen, and share their love of food.

Much like romance novels themselves, the dishes range from spicy to sweet. There is something for every taste and every level of culinary expertise. The cookbook includes New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Mari Carr’s “Wild Irish” Cream of Crab Soup recipe. Western GBLT author BA Tortuga contributes a dish as spicy and colorful as the straight-shooting author herself with Ranch Hands—a blend of Tabasco, salsa, onions and cumin, added to pinto beans, eggs, Canadian bacon and cheddar cheese and served in a tortilla. And for those of you who are feeling extra creative and sexy, there’s the Avocado Dip that doubles as body paint from mystery writer Marcia James.

Some recipes are simple, such as Down Home Mac & Cheese, while some are more exotic, such as Spicy Shrimp Risotto. There are even some gluten-free selections, like the Sweet and Spicy Gluten-Free Lo Mein-ish Noodles from erotica author Sommer Marsden. And a few are perfectly timed for a Halloween, such as Tracey H. Kitt’s Gamberi del Diavolo or Shrimp of the Devil.

Best of all, they are all FREE!

And yes, I submitted a recipe for  Banana Cookies to Passionate Cooks!  These cookies have made a huge splash at my house. 
 
So...pop over to All Romance Ebooks and pick up your copy!  And Enjoy!
