Tariffs paid on an ill-fated decision can last a lifetime.

A young boy—tossed an impossible situation by his psychopathic uncle, father or sister, he must kill one for the other to survive.

Two decades later, Dylan has developed his psychic talents, trained by the military, learned the skills necessary to locate the family he’d abandoned as a child and kill the devil himself, Roth. On the day he’s discharged, his ex-boss offers assistance in locating his sisters, demanding help with one more mission in exchange.

Tori, a young woman weeks away from graduating with her Psych doctorate, is torn from her stable life and thrust into a world of espionage, warriors, and unexplainable phenomenon. The man she loves, Major Clannahan, attaches her to the unit charged with locating a terrorist cell. Dylan, leading the unit, draws her like no other. Yet the darkness buried in his soul will test her skills and patience beyond anything she’s ever known.

Kiera and Kyley, identical twins challenged by the extremes of evil yet remain pure of heart, both bound to their man with a love withstanding the tests of time and tragedy.  One a warrior, the other with a warrior’s heart, each wield formidable psychic talents, sought after by a psychopath and terrorist bent on destroying the country.

A group of psychic warriors, dedicated to fighting evil in the shadows, locating and helping others develop their paranormal talents without splintering society’s tenacious perception of reality.

These are the extraordinary people living among us, protecting and preserving our way of life. Courage and honor, duty and strength of will can sustain us for only so long. Eventually, we must find our own path forward, learning to open our hearts to love even as we risk the ultimate pain.

Guest Post

Sneak peek of a writer at work.

    When I first saw this topic, I had to smile. I imagine if you surveyed a hundred different writers, you’d get a hundred different responses.
    I think that writers’ routines are as varied as our personalities. Personally, I prefer a modified approach…with a caveat.
    Pantsers versus plotters.
    I wrote my first novel by the seat of my pants. Um…yeah. That started out great, until…Have you ever opened your refrigerator and forgotten what you went to get? When you go to the store, do you take a written list?
    For me, yes to the first and second question. Otherwise, I’ll bring home all kinds of doggy toys, stuffed olives and mozzarella cheese.  In the interim, all the items I was supposed to get…still back at the store. Yep – another trip on the horizon.
    Here’s the thing, if you’re working with an intricate plot or happen to write over an extended time period—you won’t remember the finer details. And yes, your readers/folks that critique will point these out, (as they should).
    For my second novel – I decided to nip those pesky little problems in the bud. I made an outline. Everything was nice and tidy…AND confining. Too much so.
    Experience (and a figurative slap upside the head) taught me my current and most successful method.
    I write a scene, letting my imagination take my characters where they would go. Afterward, I make an outline of the particulars. This accomplishes two tasks.
  1. I have something to refer to when (and it always happens), I want to go back to a certain point and change a minor/major detail.
  2. It makes it much easier to write the sucknopsis. Excuse me, synopsis, the dreaded document many writers hate to tackle.
    As far as a daily routine, I think you have to be incredibly strong to stick to a strict schedule. Also, you must be single, have no husband, no boyfriend, no children, no grandchildren, no dogs (I couldn’t write without mine), etc.
    I believe it’s a matter of deciding at what part of the day you’re the most lucid and try to set that time aside for writing. For me – it’s in the morning after the dogs have paid their taxes (gone to the loo), eaten, and have settled under my desk and on my feet. The only reason they don’t sit on my lap – I sit at a desk and in an armed chair, armed with armrests not guns. I’d like to save the latter for telemarketers, electricity blackouts and anything that interrupts my writing time.
    One thing I would suggest that has helped me a great deal. Keep a mini recorder handy at all times. Inspiration can strike at any time (and lacks the consideration to wait until you’re sitting patiently at your desk). I’ve found on many occasions when I’m up in the middle of the night, a solution to a problem just pops up. Conveniently, I record a message for the morrow.
    Whatever your style, I think the most important thing to remember is this. Find whatever works for you and stick with it. Keep writing. 

About The Author

Of the many lessons life seems intent on throwing her way; the most important one Shyla’s learned is to take the time to enjoy family and friends. The flux and flow of changes aren’t something to fight, but adapt to with the best of your ability. One day’s heartbreak is often followed by another day’s triumph. The only barricades remaining are the ones we refuse to navigate. She hopes you’ve enjoyed this story. Shyla’s website,, will be updated as Dylan’s journey continues.
