Villains in the Shadows

Shadow Warrior is unique in that we see the Ferraro family being attacked in more than one way. I liked the idea of keeping the family off-kilter so they didn't know where to focus their attention. If they choose poorly, someone they care about or love would pay the ultimate price. The obvious vil . . .

She finally finds someone who is a brother to her, who cares about her, just to find that he is not who she thinks he is. He's dangerous. And he's jealous of anyone . . .

Inventing Shadow Riders

I clearly recall the day I came up with the idea for my Shadow Riders. I have two Black Russian Terriers who are somewhere between 130 — 140 pounds each. People often comment that they look a lot like big, black bears. So, you can imagine my surprise when one day, they became very difficult to . . .

Vittorio Ferraro: The Dangerous Peacekeeper

They always say that you should be careful of the quiet ones and I'm going to have to agree. Vittorio Ferraro is known as the peacekeeper of the Ferraro family but, what does that really mean when you come from a family of assassins who can travel using shadows?

The Rules of Shadow Riding

The ability to travel using shadows in order to bring justice to those who deserve it isn't as easy as it may sound. Cool, yes. Easy? No. As I began world-building for the Shadow Rider series I realized I'd have to make some things complicated in order to have conflict both internally and extern . . .

The Laws of Attraction for Shadow Riders

Shadow Riders are assassins who mete out justice, using shadows to travel. The Ferraro family is one of a few "Riders" worldwide, so rare that it is the duty of a Shadow Rider to marry and produce more Shadow Riders. If a Rider hasn't found someone to marry by the time they reach a certain age then . . .

A Little Humor in the Shadows

Assassins with the ability to travel using shadows still need a little levity. Shadow Rider is full of drama, suspense and action (yes...and romance) but I try to break up the constant adrenaline or dark action with romance and family, some of which comes with a bit of humor. You can't have that man . . .
