About Lilo Abernathy
I'm currently forty-two, but that could differ depending on what year you read this. Unless some fundamental laws of nature change, I expect that number to only get higher. I am half Italian and half Irish. Well, the Irish side is sort of an Irish/German/English/French/Scottish mix, but since I believed I was truly half Irish until my mother's foray into genealogy, I'm sticking to that story.
I live amidst the Smoky Mountains and can sometimes see the shadows of clouds lying on the mountains from my front porch. I am not yet snobbish enough to call it a veranda, but time will tell. I'm a great believer in the proof being in the pudding. Sometimes my young adult daughter joins me on the veranda... err, porch to admire the view. Often my Australian Shepherd runs around the veranda looking for things to shepherd in the yard. Because we are decidedly lacking in livestock, he ends up dragging around large tree limbs instead.
I started working full time while in high school and haven't stopped since. My illustrious career began with a smattering of service experiences at various fast food and restaurant chains, went on to fine jewelry, slipped into property management for housing projects, morphed into corporate real estate, then ended up in mergers and acquisitions. Please don't ask me how that happened . . .
My home is a modestly sized ranch, recently purchased and still not completely unpacked. The walls are a boring light beige, but they make the perfect backdrop for my brightly colored Gustav Klimt canvas prints. Van Gogh hopes to join Klimt on my walls soon, but right now the brakes on my Cube need to be fixed, and the washer overflows if I place the water level on super-duper high. Priorities, priorities.
More importantly than all of the above, you absolutely must know that my favorite color is purple. Not Barney purple, no offense to Barney, but more of a medium eggplant purple. I like to think of it as a "mature" purple, but deep down I know it is really just purple.

Agent Bluebell Kildare (a.k.a. Blue) has a gift. She can sense magic, feel emotions, and see souls. When she arrives at the scene of the crime and uses her gift, it's obvious the grotesquely damaged body of the deceased teenage boy was caused by far more than a simple hit and run. But that’s not all. Blue uncovers a powerful magical artifact nearby and soon discovers it acts as the key to an ancient Grimoire that holds the power to unravel the boundaries between Earth and the Plane of Fire.
Blue and her clever wolf Varg follow a trail that starts at the Cock and Bull Tap and leads all through the town of Crimson Hollow. Between being sidelined by a stalker who sticks to the shadows and chasing a suspect who vanishes in thin air, the case is getting complicated. If that isn't enough, Dark Vampire activity hits a record high, and hate crimes are increasing. However, it's Blue’s growing feelings for Jack Tanner, her sexy Daylight Vampire boss, that just might undo her.
While Blue searches for clues to nail the perpetrator, it seems someone else is conducting a search of their own. Who will find whom first?
Danger lurks in every corner, and Blue needs all her focus in this increasingly dangerous game or she risks ending up the next victim.
A suspenseful urban fantasy romance that will have you alternately charmed and gripping the edge of your seat.

The events begin well before The Light Who Shines, but The Binding of the Wolf is best read after The Light Who Shines as it provides the backstory for the much loved character, Varg. In my mind Varg has always been Fenrir.
Warning: This story can be read before The Light Who Shines as a teaser to the series. However, it’s not meant as a stand alone and will not feel satisfying until you have read The Light Who Shines. This short story is just under three thousand words and because of the mythological origins of Fenrir it’s told in the tone of a fairy tale. In fact, it has quite a different flavor than rest of the Bluebell Kildare Series, which is told in a more typical Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance fashion. I’ve published this story at the passionate behest of my readers, but in the future it may become the prologue of a novella.
