I have two stories in this Anthology. By Full Moon’s Light and Roses for the Devil.

Excerpts – Safe for all age levels.

By Full Moon’s Light

Something snapped me out of a deep sleep. I sat up quickly, a surge of something I’d call adrenalin if I were human rushed through my body.
The phone rang.
I flopped back down on my bed and sighed. The clock told me it was 10am, my body told me to go back to sleep. I listened my body.
The phone rang again.
“Damn it!”
I reached for the cell, horrible invention, and managed to accept the call without damaging the phone.
“Kat! Want to go camping?”
“Uh…” My brain wasn’t quite up to speed. It took me a moment for the voice to register. “Cade!” I paused, “What?”

Kat helps her hunter friend Cade take on a dangerous werewolf, but will she be able to hide her secret from him one more time?

Roses for the Devil

Thorns tore long gashes down Verilyn’s exposed arms and shredded her clothing. The hot coppery smell of blood mingled with the musty, rotting leaves as she dragged herself through the dirt.

Verilyn gagged as the coppery, bitter taste coated the back of her throat. It covered other tastes – wheaty beer, vodka, expensive wine – vomit. She swallowed bile and put one hand forward, not even feeling the bite of fallen leaves anymore. She didn’t bother to untangle her hair from the rose bush, simply pushed forward, one hand, one knee after another, as she tried to escape. There was no path through the rose garden. It had grown wild, only cultivated around the mansion. No way out but the front gate. The roses were a better deterrent than walls, meters thick in places, wild, hungry for blood.

Is survival worth Verilyn’s soul?

    Hi Julie, both excerpts managed to grab my interest, and Bleeding Ink looks like a dark and gripping read. Well done.
