A suspenseful, page-turning paranormal romance -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
From the Author
Someone's soul might depend on it.
You see, my grandmother gave me the idea for AWAKENING MACBETH years ago. When her granddaughters began to have children of their own, she cautioned us to always wake a child slowly, never abruptly.
"The soul wanders while we sleep," she said. "It needs time to come back to us before we're fully awake."
For years I woke my children gently, even as I wondered why the soul would wander while we slept. What were our souls looking for?
The question never left the back of my mind, until the day I finally realized the answer.
We're always searching for love.
But there's a dangerous side to love. Brokenhearted and grief-stricken souls wander in search of answers. That restlessness takes place in dreams--limbo, really--where evil stalks in an unending quest for souls to steal . . .
Evil is revealed in the eyes, of course, because the eyes are the windows of the soul.
But if evil steals a soul, is the person dead? What happens to that soul?
AWAKENING MACBETH ends on a question because it was always my intention to create a MACBETH trilogy. The final book would reveal that Iraq War vet Joe Birnam is really the Archangel Michael, whose job it is through all eternity to fight the devil and prevent him from stealing souls. To make Joe's job easier, he has been promised that in every lifetime he'll find his soulmate, i.e. Brodie Macbeth. So for lifetimes throughout eternity, they meet up. Only in this lifetime, in the last book, does Joe tell Brodie their fate, that she is his soulmate and that he will always find her.
So help me out. Should I write the next chapter in the Macbeth saga? Or are there enough supernatural suspense stories? If you'd like to find out what happens next to Brodie and Joe, give me a shout.
In the meantime, wake those you love very gently. Who knows where they are wandering.
