BLURB

With the loss of her sister still weighing down both her conscience and her heart, Kailin Odel must take on the next part of her mission – find her mother and Anjelo and bring them back from Wrythiin. Kailin uses her mother’s portal key and enters the Wraith world intent on saving the ones she loves, but from the moment she arrives her mission is fraught with peril. Arriving in Wrythiin, Kai steps right into the middle of a Wraith rebellion. And only to find that though Anjelo is safe, her mother is held captive by a subversive faction of Wraiths once led by the Wraithlord that Kai had killed. From Wraiths to Shapeshifters, rebel causes to fraying family ties, to inexplicable new powers, Kai must fight her darkest demons while entering the blackest pits of Wrythiin to save her mother.

Meet the Author

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 cross-eyed.

So what is Sacrificial Muse about?

After learning the identity of the serial killer behind her 83 horrific days of rape and torture, Sabrina Vaughn has suffered more physical and emotional wounds than she can handle. Despite reeling with pain both old and new, Sabrina is given a second chance as a San Francisco homicide detective. But as reporters dog her every step and hordes of mail pour into her office — from supporters and nutjobs alike–Sabrina falls deeper into a pit of humiliation and anxiety. When nine red roses repeatedly show up on her desk, followed by an ominous red envelope addressed to Calliope, Sabrina realizes that a new killer is targeting her. She is his chosen muse, and the Fates require sacrifice.

“Sabrina made piles. Note cards with things like watercolor landscapes or cartoon puppies on them went in a pile to the left. She didn’t even have to read them anymore. She could tell by the look of them that the people who sent them were sane. She flipped them open anyway, scanned the handwriting inside of each. Neat, well-spaced letters. Medium pressure on the page. That’s how normal people wrote.
​She reached into the bag and pulled another envelope. It was legal-sized and bore the postal code for San Quentin. It was thick, the lettering on the front small and cramped together, pushed deep into the paper. She tapped the side of the envelope against her desk before using a pair of scissors to cut a thin strip along it. Slipping the carefully folded pages through the hole, she opened them up. More cramped, heavy writing, creating a solid block of text. She scanned for key words.
Kidnap. Rape. Stab.
They jumped out at her from the page, each one like a physical assault. She had to stiffen her neck to keep from recoiling in disgust. For some reason, the wingnuts all wanted to confess their crimes to her. Even the ones no one knew about. She re-folded the papers together as they had come and placed them into an evidence bag. She wrote the sender’s name and the number two hundred seventy-three. That’s how many letters she’d opened so far.
And the bag was still half full.
Something moved in her peripheral vision and she looked up. “Hey, Henley.” She smiled at him, flattening her hand against the evidence bag she’d just written on. The letters and packages were just evidence—nothing to be ashamed of. That’s what she tried to tell herself anyway. She glanced at the vase on her desk. “Your turn, huh?”
Henley cracked a dry grin. “I jumped the line—got caught up in a triple last night and didn’t even get home to shower. The wife is less than pleased.” He picked up the flowers and tucked them under his arm, his smile turning awkward. None of them knew what to say to her anymore. It was like she’d come back a complete stranger.
And she guessed she had.
She forced herself to pick up the evidence bag and drop it into the file box on the floor,
next to her chair. His eyes followed its progress, landing in the pile along with the rest of them.
“Well, if I were you, I’d stop at the market across the street and grab a bottle of wine to go with the flowers,” she said, deliberately reaching into the bag and pulling out her next contestant. A thin, white square with loopy, feminine handwriting. Postmarked Oklahoma.
She placed it on her desk and looked up. Henley was still standing there, looking at her. The look on his face said he was about to offer to stay and help her.”
