A ragged band of vampires are cutting a bloody path of destruction from Alaska to Washington State! As frost turns the leaves gold and paints the high mountain treetops silver, hundreds of hunters arrive in Swan Valley for their annual deer hunt. What they don’t know is an outcast band of vampires have arrived, as well.
Raphael Goldhawk, king of the high vampire council, has decreed the taking of human life unlawful. Raul Stannard, an ancient enemy of the half-human king, is determined to overthrow the council, even if it means the exposure and eventual annihilation of the vampire race.
Four people, a Ferry County forest ranger (Roger Atley), an Indian spirit-walker (Harley Truefeather), and a young married couple (Brian and Holly Jensen), are about to be caught up in an ancient power struggle, and in a love affair as old as time itself.
This novel combines ancient history with modern times, in an epic show-down between good and evil, love and hate. Grab your camping gear and hold on tight!
From the reviewers:
I love the way the author tells the stories of all the sets of characters and then intertwines them together. - jewel fan | 8 reviewers made a similar statement
I recommend it to anyone who is a fan of vampires and even more to those who are not because they will enjoy reading about the adventures of these creatures. - MS Writer | 5 reviewers made a similar statement
It is a quick read and the rotation among the various stories kept the action and suspense moving nicely. - Todd A. Fonseca | 6 reviewers made a similar statement
THE HUNT is expertly written, filled with beautifully descriptive passages. It now lives in my mind. I know these people. They are not just characters on a page; they are fleshed out, real just like you and me. It is not the usual ‘vampire’ story. Ellen Ekey-Hines
I was caught up in this strange and wonderful story immediately, high in the forests of northeastern Washington State, with mysterious deaths at a remote campground. I couldn’t put it down. Equal parts history, magic and suspense, THE HUNT is a novel of surprising scope. - Lori Little
Once you start this fast paced novel, you won’t want to let it rest. So, keep the monitors on and the Kindles fired-up. To lose power at the wrong time could have devastating self-inflicted effects on modern technology and your bank account. - Jeff Dawson

Here is the blurb for Story Time!
In the not too distant future a young woman bears witness to the end of her world.
Earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions rock the planet, reducing cities to smoking rubble, burying entire islands and coastlines beneath cataclysmic waves.
Religious fervor and human evil erupt and entwine, becoming a maelstrom of madness in the days after, bringing with it the horror of apocalyptic war.
As a population in the depths of despair struggles to overcome insurmountable odds, can a single glimmer of hope flare into a beacon for the survivors?
This is her tale…the world is ours…and now, it’s STORY TIME.
And, coming soon…Onio! Here’s the set-up for it:
In this modern world of science and high technology, in secret places deep under the ground and in the forest primeval, legends still walk the earth and what we think of as myth and fairy tale are all too real.
Driving home late one night, Melody Carver, bereft and grieving after the death of her mother, sees a strange creature standing on the lonely road. This being will change her world-view forever, and open her eyes to a reality beyond her imagination.
Melody’s chance encounter on that dark and snowy road will mark the beginning of a journey of discovery and wonder that will bring two worlds together in hope and despair.
Can one person bridge the gap between the ancient and the modern, the mundane and the magical?
An urban fantasy filled with adventure, romance, war, heartbreak and triumph!
ONIO! Unlike anything, you have ever read before!
