Your first job out of college. It’s supposed to be a stepping stone or a transitional job, not the single defining decision that will alter the course of your entire life. Sienna Kennedy never signed on for the craziness, danger and even love that her new job thrust into her world.
But she didn’t run either.
Assigned to a maximum security floor of Western State Hospital for the mentally ill, the last thing she expected to encounter was a reminder of her past.
Cade Collins’ animal magnetism draws her into an unseen world filled with creatures from her wildest imagination. Discovering his story, as well as the very institution in which she works, becomes her obsession. Her every waking moment is consumed with unearthing a way to free the man that has stolen her heart, body and mind.
The secrets Sienna finds will free them of their bonds…or lead them to their doom. Fate flung the two destined souls together, but how can any love survive in such a demented place, filled with peril and danger?
Anne Rice has been a huge influence in my writing, heck in my life. She has made me see the world differently, opened my eyes to new things, to different lifestyles I didn’t know existed until, at a young age I first picked up her books.
Yes, I could say that Interview with the Vampire or The Vampire Lestat were the culprits but that would be a lie. Although they were what brought me to the works of Anne under her pennames- Anne Rampling and A. N. Roquealure or so she went by in those days.
The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty started my love affair with naughty books. When it was followed by two more books in the series… WOW, life altering. Should I mention I read these books when I was a young teenager… probably not but I did. I could not get enough. Exit to Eden and Belinda only added to my obsession. Tales of master and servants, human horses, BDSM, multiple partners and other kinks just drove me wild.
There was only one other book that influenced me and that was a little stand-alone entitled Us by Anonymous. I bought it at a Cubs grocery store. Is it weird that I can remember that fact? I got it home and let me tell you, it was basically porn. The story of one woman and the three men she loved. Now, looking back, it was the typical tropes- the professor, the cowboy and the incredibly good looking well hung gay guy. In the end, she brings them all together and they all love each other in every way possible. The fact that I remember that book, though I think my mom threw it in the trash when she found it in my room, all these decades later says something about the profound effect it had not only on me as a writer but me as a person.
I only hope that someday, decades from now, one person writes of one of my books having an influence on their lives and careers. It is all anyone can ask for.
I was always the girl who spent most of her life living in her head, even at an early age. My made up worlds were so much more interesting than real life. In them, anything was possible. I could be a reckless archaeologist digging up a mummy who came to life, terrorize a medieval village by drinking all their blood, start an intergalactic war between rival planets, or ride a wild stallion with a hunky Native brave clad only in a breech cloth, all within the course of a weekend.
Life didn’t stay simple. I had to grow up, get a job, became a wife and mother and put all my dreams on hold. After a change in my life, I found myself a single mom who had plenty of time to fall back into the land of make believe.
One night I opened up my computer and soon several novels were penned. Now I have embarked on a journey to become the person I always envisioned myself to be, an author, sharing my crazy ideas with the world.
