Can Iria truly get what she’s always dreamed of or will it always just remain a memory? Being a rare creature such as her with exceptional beauty and rarity of existence should be enough. Though, all she wants is her desire, her destiny… To be with a man—one man.

Are these dreams she’s having real? Could she really take on human form and become a Lady to be with the man she craves?

Dezso discovers a magical creature—a being of incredible light and peace. He is drawn to it again and again, and his feelings grow with every encounter. He carries a dark secret that he wishes never existed.

Will he ever know true love and happiness? Will he ever be able to lighten the weight and share his dark secret with another...?

Darkness is growing stronger, weakening the light and killing off what makes the world a beautiful place to live in. Enter a world of fantasy and dreams, passions and temptations. A world where dragons, unicorns, magic and mermaids really do exist.A world where love WILL conquer all!

When did you start writing and why? I’ve been writing since I learned how. Nothing major, mostly poetry, thoughts, ideas and short stories. I’m a person that enjoys expression. Words, to me, are an excellent form to fully express yourself. What I do right now is express my feelings combined with my ideas into my stories and I have a lot of fun doing it J

Where does your inspiration come from? It varies. Sometimes it’s photos, a story I’ve read in the past, a song or something altogether different. Lady’s Destiny was inspired by Wednesday Briefs. A group of writers I’ve been flashing (writing flash fiction) with for a little while. So, you can say it started off as a flash and grew to a full blown novel!
What’s your favorite genre? Why? Oh, this is one of the hardest questions I’ve ever had to answer!! I read almost anything I can get my hands on. Put it this way, I read 4, sometimes 7 books (yes full sized novels) a week. Anything from romance to horror. YA to NA. Looking through my reading history, I’d say so far I enjoy paranormal (romance, erotic, thriller, etc.) the most. There, I made a choice just for you ;)
Describe your writing space.
I have my very own room (my dragon den) complete with a VERY loud hook up for my music. Then there’s my computer, my pet snake Cin, my pup Cyan, lots of dragons, photos and art work of things that appeal to my imagination hanging around my walls. I also have my desk near a window that faces my back yard. I love looking out of it during all of the seasons. There’s quite a variation of trees and flowers which attract the most welcome and beautiful little critters for me to feast my eyes on.
Tell us something about your new release that doesn’t appear in the blurb or excerpt.
Dezso and Iria have watched one another, dreamt of one another for a very long time before they actually meet. It was a long time coming for them to get together and I enjoyed making their dreams come true for them J

Your favorite line from your latest release is: “Take that evil doer!”
(Yea, I can be a bit of a dork-lol)

Lady's Destiny - Model Photo 2 (Right)Biography: I started off early in competitive sports and quickly got into football where I immediately adapted. I maintained football throughout my entire life. But my love for the gym and fitness didn’t start till sophomore year in high school. However, in my junior year I was in a terrible car crash where my head was crushed as I was ran over in the street by a truck after being catapulted at 80mph. I was airlifted to the hospital where I had emergency brain surgery and my heart failed. They immediately brought me back with an adrenaline shot where they presumed I would not live. I was in a coma two weeks. When I woke I had to re-learn everything including how to function and walk again.

In 2012 I went into training for NFL and now playing pro arena looking to keep pursuing football and modeling as well as motivate others and coach them in bettering their lives. Through fitness and motivational speaking.

Tour Organized By:


My Lady, so perfect and pale, with such beauty and grace is a sensual goddess to be worshipped and treasured.

She is the treasure that I yearn to have as mine and I focus now solely on the change. I am not sure how much time passes when my power suddenly snaps back into me. I grind my teeth to keep from grunting from the impact. Surprised that Than has not sensed my power on the move, either that, or he has not shown me that he knows. I am also very pleased that he is so consumed with his search, that he does not realize what I have done. “Mmm...” Both Than and myself turn toward the feminine sound. I feel my eyes widen in surprise, but I quickly conceal it. It worked, from what I am able to see of her. I can only see her face and the pale upper flesh of her breasts. What lovely breasts they are. I feel my mouth water for a taste of her creamy globes, and my hands itch to feel their weight. The woman from my dreams kneels, nude within the heather, looking disoriented. Her hair is a tangled mess, partially covering her face. She does not seem to be able rise and stand solidly. Gravity currently appears to be her enemy. Observing her, I feel as if I am floating. Light and filled with air, like one of my Uncle’s magic bubbles when it floats up toward the sun. Higher and higher, drifting into bliss, and I find myself smiling. She glances up, sees me, and her mouth forms an ‘O’ of surprise. Her breathing becomes slightly erratic. It looks as if she is unable to catch a proper breath. I find myself moving toward her as though being pulled by some unknown force, completely captivated by the sight before me and unable to resist its call. Now, we only have eyes for each other. I feel everything else around us disappear. It is now just her and I, caught in a spell woven of lust and intense longing. I am lost within the depths of her soul-filled, pleading eyes. I move closer to answer their call when an annoying buzzing sound pulls me from the spell.
