REVIEWED: Island of Glass

Island of Glass by Nora Roberts (Fantasy Novel, 2016). It’s hard to keep up with the enormously prolific and overwhelmingly popular Nora Roberts.

Erotic Vampire Horror Published

“Appraised Risk,” a tale of erotic vampire horror and my newest work of short fiction, has been published by the online site DEADMAN’S TOME.
