I’m a monster. A literal monster. But I’m a “good” kind of monster. You know, like the serial killers who kill the drug dealers, rapists, and general scum of the earth.

The difference between those serial killers and me? I’m only part human; two-thirds of me is werepire. That’s right, werewolf and vampire. It’s not fun, but I make due. I’m also a therapist; the one these scum pay to… talk to. I listen, sure. But then I have my own personal brand of justice. It gets messy, so if you plan to stick around, might I suggest you wear a rubber suit?

It turns out I have residents in the castle dungeons. They’re pretty helpful and we get along famously. I think I’m going to like having them around.

I’m still trapped inside my own body with these idiot monsters, but there’s good news. Dr. Fleming Heilsong heard about my search for a cure through a colleague and contacted me to offer his help. I can’t lie, this whole thing makes me nervous. I don’t want to die but the werepireism grows stronger every day. I’m fighting for my life – my very soul. Some days I think I’ll lose it altogether and so does Teddy.

How much longer can I hold on? Or will the monsters take control?


Excerpt

Prologue


Let’s go back to how this all started.  Call it a trip back in time, if you like.  About four years ago, I, Dr. Miranda van Wolfe was not a doctor.  I was still in school earning my Bachelor and Master Degrees.  I was also a universe traveler, though I did not know it in the very beginning.

It started with a dream, or what I thought was a dream.  That following weekend, I heard a voice and not just any voice – not something that sounded human, anyway.  It told me it was going to take me to another universe to set things right there, so the universe I lived in and the one I was being sent to fix would merge.  It really started simply and nicely enough.

Then things started getting…weird.  The universe started referring to the trips it sent me on as errands, and finally, the last trip was a mission.  I had saved my friends and family over and over.  I even had a partner until that last mission.  What I did not ever know, until the very end, was that I was not fully human.  During an errand to an alternate universe to save my friend and her family, I fought, and killed, a magical werewolf with my own formidable magic.  During that battle, I had been scratched and magically healed myself.  I was never able to figure out how until my universe traveling days were over about a year ago.  I all just…ended.  Stopped dead in its tracks.  Hah, stopped dead, what a reference, Miranda.

You see, that last mission was a battle for the entire fate of the multiverse.  There was a woman named Venus who was able to control people’s minds just by whispering into their ear.  My partner Xavier and I had gone to this universe (I had also earned my doctorate the day we left for that universe).  So here I am, being sent on a mission with a man-child I am absolutely infuriated with because he missed my graduation that day, and we wind up in some 1940s style Twilight Zone.  I was stuck in a dress half the time and finally managed to get some gear that allowed me to actually fight without flouncing around like a floofball.

Anyway, I got dark, and by dark, I mean my soul almost left me and had I not still had a part of me that was, err, is, human, it would be gone right now.  So Xavier and I had to go meet up with his doppelganger in 1940s Twilight Zone to get whatever information on Venus we could, seeing how he was already under Venus’ mind control.  There is no way to nicely tell you what I did to that poor man, but suffice it to say I did not kill him.  The weird part was he was so grateful to me for saving his life and breaking the mind hold he let me stay with him until this whole mind control business was finished.  He even bought me clothes, fed me…gave up his bed to me!  I am pretty sure I will never again meet a human that incredibly grateful.

Manager of a popular Italian restaurant in the small town of Celebration, tall, charming, and incredibly handsome Loren Hamilton can have any woman he wants. Trouble is, the woman he wants is the one who’s never forgiven him for breaking her heart. Asked to be best man at his friend’s wedding, his feelings are mixed when he finds out who the maid of honor will be. Deciding to accept the opportunity fate is handing him, he sets out to prove once and for all that he can be trusted, and, hopefully, win over the love of his life in the process.

Madison Sinclair had hoped her years away from Celebration – and Loren – would lessen her feelings for him. She couldn’t have been more wrong. Since moving back to town to open her own business, she’s been successful at avoiding her ex-boyfriend at every turn, and then the bride extends an invitation for her to participate in the wedding. Resigning herself to the fact that she’ll be in close contact with Loren leading up to the festivities, she gradually lowers her guard, allowing herself hope that he’s changed – until a misunderstanding leads once again to heartbreak.

Loren attempts to explain the circumstances surrounding the incident but is rebuffed by Madison, so he makes a last-ditch effort to reach her in 
true dramatic fashion. Stunned by his originality, now it’s Madison’s turn to reciprocate on the most romantic day of the year – Valentine’s Day.

The Blackfish Prophecy

Young Adult / Nature
Date Published: May 31, 2016
Publisher: Fawkes Press

Best friends Terra and Tiluk live alongside the wild orcas of Washington State. On the other side of the continent, Miles wallows in anger and self-pity fueled by his parents’ divorce. In a moment of harrowing fate, their lives converge when Miles witnesses a captive orca brutally kill his trainer at a marine amusement park. When Miles contacts Terra and her family of whale biologists to better understand the “killer” whale, the three teens soon realize they are more linked to each other – and the whales – than they ever imagined. Driven by a primal urge to connect with the highly-evolved consciousness of the orca, the teens take extraordinary risks to challenge big business and renew lost traditions. Their journey is set to restore an ancient mystical bond between humans and whales that ultimately reveals The Blackfish Prophecy…a revelation about Terra – and those like her – that’s about to change everything.


Excerpt


But this evening Claire was no peacemaker. She’d rung the bell. The bell was only for extreme emergencies. Yet when she’d gotten the call from a colleague in Florida about what had happened at OceanLand this morning, ringing the bell was her first response. With that phone call, all the years of hurt and frustration burst, and something broke inside her. She’d known even as she rang the bell that obviously this wasn’t a true emergency, but a part of her needed the tolling just the same. Something had to change. He’d killed again. Her heart cringed, thinking of him. She wiped her eyes, again.

Claire shivered inside her parka and glanced back at Terra and Tiluk, hand in hand as they descended the long set of stairs behind her and the other adults. She saw that Terra gingerly held the carved and bloodsoaked whale that shed brought home, her fingers bandaged from the cut shed given herself. Claire hadnt been surprised to see Terra’s carving of the new calf. She knew her daughter felt a special kinship with Wendy’s new baby. She took a deep breath of the salted air she loved so much, reminding herself why she and her family were here. But her stomach remained tight with grief and empathy. Now, instead of having the chance to meet the new calf her daughter had dreamt about with a free and easy heart, the news of the killing shadowed everything. And even though she was a scientist, a worldclass researcher of the highest order, Claire had asked Terra to broadcast the Adagio on the twoway. Just this once. With this latest killing, she felt an overwhelming need to ritualize her sorrow with the whales.

She looked at her husband Bill, taking in his saltandpepper windswept tousle of hair and etched face. His grim glance told her he felt as sick with the news and what it meant as she did. Looking back at Joseph and Maggie, she knew they felt it, too. Joseph reached out and clasped her shoulder for a moment, his eyes holding hers.

“Careful Claire,” Maggie said, eyeing the narrow, steep stairway. “Mercy, we don’t need any more injuries today,” she murmured. Claire stopped short, turned all the way around, and leaned into Maggie, hugging her briefly from the stair below.

“I know, honey.” Maggie hugged her hard. “I know.”

Terra met Tiluk’s eyes, puzzled. What is really going on here? The adults said they’d explain about the Shantu news later, at dinner. Why was her mom so upset? Terra didn’t even know how to feel about what they’d told her. She was too dazed. The calf has a brother. The calf has a brother. Her mind, overwhelmed by this news—and the killing—had shut down. The words kept rolling around and around her head: The calf has a brother. But her brother killed a human. Her brother killed someone. It was all she could think of as if the news itself blocked her from considering its implications. Tiluk had grown even more solemn and quiet than usual. Neither Terra nor Tiluk were ready to know more.

About the Author

 photo unnamed 1_zpsmo4acqvk.jpg Rachel is a writer and biologist. As a kid she got hooked on all things animal, vegetable, and mineral. To complicate matters, she was hatching up stories before she could hold a crayon. Once she discovered biology it was all over. Ever since her first class in 7th grade when she refused to dissect a frog, a little voice in her head said: You gotta share this amazing stuff about how nature works, and ask if we really need to harm it. The little voice only got fiercer once she went to college and worked with captive dolphins and Beluga whales, then got to see wild killer whales only a few weeks later. From then on it was an all-out quest to convey the wonders of nature, while pointing out the serious problems of our very bad habit of dominating others and the Earth. She’s been a card-carrying science writer for twenty years. The Blackfish Prophecy is Rachel’s first book.

Later, she is reunited with a high school friend who becomes the man who makes her frightening memories dissolve into distant shadows that hover at the outer fringes of her mind but are rarely allowed in.

Outcasts Assassin

Outcasts Book 4
Sci-fi Romance
Publisher: Anything-but-Ordinary Books
Published: January 2019

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Torrin’s simple mission is seriously complicated when he finds Arrista, a lovely Sarronti female, in need of rescue. The Sarronti resent the Outcasts and continually sabotage their efforts to build a settlement on the primitive planet. But Arrista isn’t just any Sarronti. She’s the personal servant of one of the most powerful Sarronti. The information Arrista can provide would be vitally important to the Outcasts, so Torrin is ordered to use their mutual attraction to question her.

Arrista has been taught to fear and mistrust the savage Outcasts, so why does she find Torrin so fascinating, so desirable? It’s not just his muscular body and rugged features. He is kinder and more protective than any male she has ever known. She is drawn to him by a force so compelling it leaves her no choice but surrender. She wants him, needs him, but can she trust him not to break her heart?



Note to Readers: This book contains detailed descriptions of sizzling passion only suitable for mature readers. Certain plot elements carry on from book to book. Though Assassin can be read as a standalone, it’s more fun to read the series in order.

Outcasts 4: Assassin

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Copyright © 2019 Cyndi Friberg



Torrin’s jaw dropped, and his heart lurched inside his chest. For one blissful moment, he was paralyzed by shock and primal need. A goddess stood before him naked, offering her perfect body to him. High round breasts, tiny waist and softly curved hips combined to form the personification of his wildest dreams. A small patch of hair above her mound was the same silvery blue as the shimmering hair on her head. Her legs were long and shapely, perfect to wrap around his waist while he thrust strong and steady between her thighs.

“I am willing to serve you, but I need to know what pleases you.”

Her soft, tremulous voice snapped him from his lust addled stupor. He forced his gaze back to her face as he pushed to his feet. His ocular scanners provided information on her biological functions, but he knew nothing about the Sarronti, had no idea if the readings were problematic or not.

Still, fear smelled like fear regardless of the species and facial expressions were nearly universal. Her pastel blue gaze followed his movements with a mixture of dread and hopelessness. Her bleak resignation tore at his heart, and he’d thought himself much too jaded to feel pity. It was obvious she’d done this before, offered her body out of obligation and fear.

He snatched the towel off the deck and wrapped it around her, inadvertently trapping her arms at her sides. “This is not why I brought you here. If we share pleasure, it will be because you want me just as much as I want you.”

Painting With Words

Poetry
Painting With Words: Poetry for a New Era
Publisher: Manor House Publishing
Published: November 2018

This collection of poems features six thematically distinct parts, displaying a full spectrum of human emotions, capturing the shared aspects of our experience. Each poem reflects how deeply the author has traveled into his personal experience to process its meaning. His poetry is incisive and devoid of redundant imagery that might obscure the truth, both the poetic and human one.

“With the multi-layered quality of the poems, Prattis takes the reader through the immensities of joy and pain, through the infinite and the mysterious. He dissects the dissonance of the modern world with the scalpel of his poetic musings, and describes the interflow between the human soul and the spirit of earth, paving his quest for spiritual evolution and higher meaning. Prattis’ poetry is a poetic narrative of our basest attributes as a species, our greed, and propensity toward savage violence, as well as our ability to love beyond the telling power of words. His verses awaken the sense of the infinite within us surging our hearts with the power of their message. They restore the possibility of the ancient dialogue between humans and nature, and most of all they restore a sense of optimism.” Jana Begovic – Foreword
