13 Vintage Halloween Songs from the 1910's, 20's, & 30's – Full Song Par...


Forever Haunted is finished draft-wise and is in the feedback and editing process.

Forever in Deep is underway, over 4,000 words so far.

And the audiobook of Forever's Too Long is being recorded. I'm really excited about this. Not only will it make the series accessible to people who need that format, but Allan has always been an incredible vocal performer. I'm looking forward to people finding out what he can do and getting to enjoy the dramatic and funny way he brings it to life.

Natural History

I've always loved reading about the sciences. For the most part, that's influenced my participation in the Para-Earth series, where paranormal and science fiction (in the form of parallel Earth evolution) come together. However, I'm finding my interest in animal life is even useful in the Forever Detective series. Many folklore entities are closely connected to the natural realm. Even unnatural creatures like vampires are able to shape shift and control animals to do their bidding-- so it helps to know about those animals.

For instance, there are many types of bats, and vampire bats are a tiny minority. Insectivores are far more common, and the flying fox type-- the largest bats-- are not only cute, but they live on things like pollen, nectar, and fruit. If a vampire turns into a flying fox, it tells you he doesn't think like other vampires.

For Forever Haunted, I had to do some research on moths, which was rather fun and unusual. I've learned about jaguars, too, as I will be using that information later.

I need to know about horses for book 3, Forever in Deep. I also need horse racing information. Anyone want to recommend good sources?
