Panther Shape-shifter Kailin Odel just wants to be normal. Leaving her clan, and her Alpha responsibilities, to live with her grandmother in Chicago had been the best thing for her. Only then did she discover her ability to track and kill the soul sucking undead creatures called Wraiths. Now she protected the humans, and had something to be proud of.
But, when she discovers the body of a murdered shape shifter, Kailin has to come to terms with the reality that her own kind are just as vulnerable as the humans.
The closer Kailin gets to the killer the more she has to face the intricacies of her people. When the time comes can she accept who and what her real purpose is?


“The cold cocking of guns set my body on fire.
It also did something worse. With mortal fear gripping me, my imminent
Change wasn’t taking second place anymore. My body churned the fear
and my Panther grasped at the visceral power of the adrenalin in my
I ran.
A gunshot echoed around the garden, the sound ping-ponging off the
aging brick walls of the surrounding apartment buildings.
I gasped as a blast of searing pain slammed into me.
As a bullet buried itself deep within my shoulder.”
“These last few minutes had felt like days of agony and fear. My breath
still came in little hysterical hiccups. Where had the cool, calm wraith
hunter gone?
Things changed when hunter became prey.”
“What have you gotten yourself into this time?” (asked Anjelo)
“Wasn’t my fault….” Hard to bristle with indignation while I lay sprawled
and bleeding at the feet of my scolder. I’d be wasting my breath. We’d
argue again later, as I was way too tired to make the effort now.
“When is it ever? Always said one day you’ll get yourself hurt. And wasn’t I
right?” He waved his hands at both my torn body and shredded clothes,
sighing as if he were the one shot and bleeding out pints.
Oh, the drama.”

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognize that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practice given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes… I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It’s a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each others loves – it works wonderfully…

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands – I shall forever remain crosseyed.
