Seventeen year old girls are strange and fabulous creatures, and I used to be one of them, sitting on the cusp of that precarious stage in adolescent development in which I genuinely made my parents uncomfortable. SEV-EN-TEEN SEV-EN-TEEN SEV-EN-TEEN, three syllables that slide and skipped across the tongue when you spoke it. My Father was the most disturbed by the reality of a teenage girl because he was a boy and he knew what sort of thoughts could be conjured up in the dirty minds of his sort, age was irrelevant young or old it really didn’t matter when it came to that sexy number seventeen, they were all guilty of it from time to time, that wandering eye, that lost thought or illicit daydream. Of course in mixed company no man in his sane mind would dare admit to being a perv, but behind closed doors or driving in a car past a bus stop or simply watching a gaggle of us stroll along giggling at the mall was usually enough to get the fella’s to set the brain to flights of fantasy and eventually a good crank of the shank in the bathroom before bed.

Men and boys look at you differently when you are seventeen, why, I can’t really say for sure because I am not a boy or a man. There is however something quite definitive about seventeen. Seventeen is evolutionary perfection physically; the changes which took place in my own body over the course of one summer made me cocoon and blossom into



Jessie  is a ordinary girl, that is until she meets Shay. Jessie embarks on a journey a transformation of epic proportion that will forever change her life and relationships as she knows it, an awakening of body and mind. How will she cope with the choices she is faced with?  What would you do if  the big bad wolf knocked on your door?”

So I’ve been feverishly typing away at my laptop and it struck me that I have not shared the synopsis of my book with anyone so here goes Kat.

Werewolves have always been my favourite “monster” if you will. The only problem is most of the time the portrayal of these fascinating creatures has been pretty darn awful. The whole rabbit dog, ugly hairy brainless beast cliché has been beaten to death already. Oh sure vampires have had a good run, so its time to move over you blood sucking book hogs, witches too, even the zombie has seen a revival and a growing fan base with such classic comics as the Robert Kirkman’s series The Walking Dead. But my beloved werewolves have not  been given a fair shake thus far. So I intended to set out to right that wrong, hence my first book ever which is entitled RED.

I wanted to put a new spin on an old idea, so for the last two years I have written and re-written page after page of what will be my first published book paying homage to THE BEST bad guy around.  Red is a book full of my blood, sweat and tears, well maybe not really blood but definitely tears. I hope to show the depth of character a werewolf can have, not just an aggressive violence for violence sake slasher tale. I want to push my creative boundaries and by doing so hope that you will enjoy my girls as much as I have enjoyed penning them.

In the course of the past two years I have developed quite the crush on my protagonists, and to me they are extremely real. This novel is embedded into my heart and my greatest hope for it at the end of the day is that it excites and interests the readers who choose to take the time to get to know RED.

Okay, so I don’t really want to run this blog in a conventional manner or like every other blog you may come across in the great wide cyber space.  An idea struck me while I was in bed, often some of the best pieces of personal writing are found in letters. Letters to friends, letters to strangers, the bottom line here is, we all remember letters, at least some of us do. It is after all the godfather of the email and text message.

So I have decided that my blog posts will be “Dear Kat” letters.  The Kat in question is the lovely and talented Kat Von D, successful and uber talented tattoo artist and accomplished business woman of course! Like y’all didn’t know that. This may sound completely nuts to some but to me, obviously not so much since I am basically telling you that I’m going write my blog this way.

What will I tell Kat in my letters you may ask?  Well I just don’t know right at this very moment but I’m sure I will think of something.

Stay tuned ….
