Brit is desperate to unravel the mysteries behind her wings and the curse of the banshee before someone else gets hurt. The only person who can help her is Gentry O’Neill, a handsome lifeguard who knows more than he’s telling. With Gentry’s help, Brit must embark on a journey of discovery that will lead her through her mother’s troubled past, her father’s dark secrets, and the horrifying truth of her own existence.
Author of Indigo and The Sprightling Diaries because I love a good book. Runner because I love a good sweat. Mother of four because . . . well, you know.

Reading and writing have always been my passions. During my childhood I spent hours exploring the woods of rural western Pennsylvania where I first began creating stories about faeries, pixies, magic, and mystical creatures.

I met my husband, Aaron, while attending Utah State University, and later earned a degree in human services from Columbia College. I now reside in Farmington, Utah. When I am not reading, writing, or running, I spend the rest of my time caring for my four adorable children and one fat, lazy cat.

Alex spun around to see that she was standing in the doorway to the bedroom, slowly advancing in. He watched as she reached to her side and slowly pulled down the concealed zip in her white dress. He swallowed hard.

“What are you doing?”

Isn't it obvious?” she replied as she let the dress fall to her feet and she stepped away from it, now clad only in a sheer flesh-tone thong. She reached up to unclasp her hair and Alex’s eyes were drawn to the way this movement raised her breasts. God, he had forgotten just how beautiful she was. 

He watched as she let her blonde curls fall around her shoulders and she combed her fingers through her hair. Her eyes, Alex could see, were riveted to his cock and the erection that was growing fast. 

“How do you want me?” Tamara asked her voice husky and something in Alex snapped."

After a spell of silence, I slipped back inside and slid out of my shoes to avoid tracking rain through the house. In the kitchen, I grabbed a waffle from the freezer and stuck it in the toaster oven before sneaking downstairs to the utility room.

My father’s toolbox sat in the back, next to the water heater. His knife rested on the top right side of the inner shelf. As chaotic as he behaved in every other part of his life, he practically had OCD when it came to his tools. Next to the knife sat a box of razor blades. I slid two out and dropped them in my pocket before closing the box.
Upstairs, I buttered and drenched my waffle in syrup, grabbed a soda, took them back to my room, and locked the door.

My parents had gone silent. Dad probably passed out. I could not bear to think about what Ma was doing. Maybe plotting his death.

I’ll get the Draino, you get the Bleach—let’s take that fucker out!

I popped in the ear buds of my Nano and turned to the playlist full of thrashing music Cat gave me. After annihilating my waffle and draining the soda, I fished the blades out of my pocket. My arms were almost healed—soft pink skin puckered in a few spots—but soon even that would be invisible.

Instead, I pulled up my pant leg and laid my ankle across the opposite knee. A burn on the inside of my calf was healing, the scab still moist and tender. With precision, I pressed the corner of the blade into my flesh. The moment it broke the skin, a flush of joy spread across my chest and I restrained myself from digging it further into the muscle. I sliced across the scab, exposing the wound and raw flesh beneath, and pulled it across my skin, creating a three-inch incision. Blood, honey thick, bubbled to the surface before flowing together, drawn close like mercury.

My mind sparkled with light—no sound, no pain, only the perfect feeling of blade against skin, knife within flesh. Once again, the darkness within me abated and I felt free.

The only thing that can save her is the Staff, which still lies buried in Taran’s cellar.

Robin Tamsen sets out on a desperate quest to recover the artifact, but the enemy is two steps ahead of him. Sonten knows where the Staff is, and he will stop at nothing to get it back.

Seventeen-year-old Luke Chesser is trying to forget his spectacular failure of a love life. He practices marching band moves for hours in the hot Texas sun, deals with his disapproving father, and slyly checks out the new band field tech, Curtis Cameron. Before long, Luke is falling harder than he knew he could. And this time, he intends to play it right.

Since testing positive for HIV, Curtis has careened between numbness and fear. Too ashamed to tell anyone, Curtis can’t possibly act on his feelings. And Luke—impulsive, funny, and more tempting than he realizes—won’t take a hint. Even when Curtis distances himself it backfires, leaving him with no idea how to protect Luke from the truth.

Confronting a sensitive topic with candor and aplomb, acclaimed author J. H. Trumble renders a modern love story as sweet, sharp, and messy as the real thing, where easy answers are elusive, and sometimes the only impossible thing is to walk away.
