GENRE: Paranormal Romance
DC bustles, the light from the city fills the night. But in the dark alleys and backstreets, only slivers of light from a full moon dance. In such an alley, a shadowy figure is hunched over a body. She lifts her head to reveal soulless eyes and fangs dripping with blood as she licks her lips with exultation.
Standing up, she wipes her chin, and tosses her long black hair, then saunters away.
At FBI headquarters, Gerry examines the case files of 18 wealthy men, dead, with few clues, no DNA, and no leads...
When predator and prey become one, no one is safe.
Gerry turned, but she was there, her hands on his shoulders pushing him back hard against the hood of the Suburban.
She could smell his musky scent, and his blood, she could feel it coursing through his veins. His heart pumping thundered over the noise of the fans, pushing the precious liquid through his body. Her own desire to drink it in was near insanity. Her lips pulled back, fangs ready to sink into his flesh, her mouth brushed against his neck. The taste of his blood running down her throat would be heaven. She stopped and jerked back. She couldn’t kill him. Erin found herself questioning her actions.
What was she feeling? She didn’t believe in love. Never believed in love at first sight. Yet here she was with the perfect prey, and she wanted to know everything about him. Wanted to spend time with him, needed to be with him. The feeling she couldn’t be complete without him overwhelmed her. It was the only time in hundreds of years she didn’t kill the man she chose. She stumbled back half a step. Dazed by her own confusion.
Looking up into Gerry’s wide eyes, she saw horror and confusion reflected back at her.
“I’m sorry, I was so scared. I didn’t mean to push you back like that. It was just that I was so afraid standing there alone.” Words tumbled out of Erin’s mouth. Did he believe her? “I ran forward without even thinking.” Words were still coming.
AUTHOR Bio and Links:
I love a good paranormal read, something about the un-dead haunts the fringes of my mind. Mix in romance, love, loss, and you have a great story.
I voraciously read everything, fiction, and non-fiction but always find myself turning back to the darker stories. I’ve always wanted to write and the dream became a reality with Capital Thirst, and the remainder of the Erin Kingsly novels.
I spend most of my days designing and building websites, but my free time is devoted to my wife, family, and cats. Yes three grown children and three cats. Things can be hectic.
For fun you might find me driving winding roads with the top down or out photographing nature.

1. If Capital Thirst was to be on screen, who would you want to play the main characters?
This is a really tough question for me. I don’t watch movies and have no idea who any of the current actors or actresses are. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve been to a movie in over twenty years. I don’t even watch TV. I read when I’m not working, and all the main characters are in my mind. For me the entertainment is envisioning the characters, not watching someone else’s interpretation.
2. When not writing, what do you do?
From 9 to 5 everyday I’m a software developer for the US Army. Up until a few years ago evenings and weekends were spent with my children going to lacrosse games and other family activities. Now they are either finished with college and moved out or off at college, so evenings and weekends are just quiet times with my wife.
I’m an avid amateur photographer and try to get out as much as I can in the early mornings to photograph nature. I love walking just as the sun comes up and seeing the wildlife and flowers in the morning light.
During the spring, summer and early fall I spend a lot of time with my car club driving back roads with the top down all over Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. It’s so relaxing to drive down a windy road and not come across another car for hours.
3. What is the title of your favorite book?
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is without a doubt my favorite book. I know it’s a collection of short stories but they are all connected as if they were written as a single book. There is something magical about Sherlock Holmes and I enjoy reading these stories over and over.

What were some of your favorite childhood books?ReplyDelete
Well anything by Tolkien. I just loved those. When I was in maybe sixth grade I read Watership Down by Richard Adams. For some reason that story has stuck with me to this day. I also loved Anne McCaffrey's Dragon Riders or Pern series.
