In The Haunting Lessons, Tamara Smythe is a girl from Iowa who, amid tragedy, discovers how special she is. To normal people, “special” sure looks like crazy. Naturally, she runs away to New York and into the sharp teeth of destiny, secret armies, blessed blades and monsters invading New York. You’re going to love the Ghosts and Demons Series and Tam’s greatest friend, Manhattan.
The Haunting Lessons is Book One, followed by The End of the World As I Know It and Fierce Lessons. Enjoy the ride and your complementary digital copy of The Haunting Lessons.
I’m building my email list. All I need is your email address so I can let you know about new developments with my series. Be assured, I won’t bother you too often or sell the list to a cult or anything crazy and you can opt out at any time. Thanks!
Intense Violence, Bizarre Themes is about a young criminal (me) who returns to New York looking for escape and a second chance. You know what? NYC is pretty unforgiving. Ex-girlfriends and angry brothers weren’t pleased about my return, either. The quest for cash and a new life keeps the plot moving fast. Jump in. You’ll love the ride.
Thanks to Kit Foster of KitFosterDesign.com for another great design.

This fun, dark fantasy series tracks Tamara Smythe, a young woman from Iowa who can see ghosts and demons. She joins a secret society dedicated to defending the human race from demons from another dimension. As Tam’s journey evolves, she shares lessons she’s learned about how to combat evil and survive Armageddon. It’s fun, packed with action, jokes and pop culture references (like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, for instance!)

Death Lessons has a lot of jokes in it. Really. It’s a funny dark fantasy about the coming demon Armageddon. Think Buffy, but with more swordplay. Like the first book in the Ghosts & Demons Series, The Haunting Lessons, it’s full of action and misty wistfuls roaming New York City.
Then there are moments like this, where Tamara Smythe comments on her part-time gig working at a funeral home and picking up bodies from crime scenes:
There might not be enough leftovers to piece together a whole skull, of course, but that puzzle was a bony jigsaw for the funeral directors.
