What’s Your Monster?

I can barely believe that it has been a year since I collaborated and helped publish “All the Lovely Creatures”. It was a free anthology of fantasy and horror undertaken by GoodReads group, Paranormal & Horrors Lovers. It was a great experience. All of the writers were enthusiastic and supportive throughout the process. One of […]

My Book is NOT like Twilight
