About T. A. Moorman
When you become a Mom, you begin to put yourself last, and your combat boots begin to collect dust. Going to your child's PTA meetings in full Gothic, especially industrial, regalia is pretty much frowned upon. Especially by your own children, and your teens would die of a heart attack. But, one should not have to completely stop being themselves, uniqueness is greatness. So all of that darkness is put into words in her books, and designs in her jewelry sold in her Etsy shop, GothicMoms DarkCharms.
A single mother of five beautiful children, but by far more than just that. T. A. Moorman is an artist, a violinist, a lab assistant, a seamstress, a crafter, a writer, a blogger, a reviewer, a dark confidant and a darkly dangerous, fiercely protective friend.

What happens when those victims get the upper hand? What if they get possessed by a demon to help them impart revenge, or converge with an old spirit who experienced the same? What if a mischievous god catches them mid suicide and offers them a chance to exact their vengeance in any way they choose? This one goes out to all those driven to commit suicide or killed just for someone else's thrills. It goes to those whose lives changed for the worst on the whim of a bully or somebody’s intolerable hatred.
These stories are not for the feint of heart. There will be multi-genres tales involving blood, violence, sex, dark magic, twisted humor, trickster deities, and a whole lot of vengeance.
These Bestselling and Award Winning authors aim to make bullies think twice before they pick on someone.
Kierra has never been one for many words. So if she were forced to explain how she impregnated Anya, it probably wouldn’t be easy for her. Especially since the truth would mean revealing her origins; she’s not a vampire, or even anything close to it. And living in a realm where her kind isn’t allowed may cause a few ramifications. Plus, should the kid call her Mom, or Dad?
Jump right back into the world of Underlayes where this magical family takes dysfunction to brand new heights.
***** EXCERPT: “This is not happening. This is not happening. This is seriously not fucking happening!” I don’t know why my brain kept thinking that if I kept repeating that mantra over and over, and over and again in my head that it’d somehow be true. I mean, if there were a genie behind the mirror listening to my one-person conversation, then maybe. But, since I have worst luck than Mufasa from the Lion King, fat chance on that happening. What was happening on the other side of that bathroom door however, I just plain wasn’t ready to deal with. To tell the honest to goodness truth I don’t think I’d even be telling the truth if I said I would EVER be ready to deal with it. Because once I open this door I’ll be opening up a can of worms. No, that’s not quite right, try snakes, nah, more like anacondas. So, looking in the hateful mirror that was not being helpful in any type of way whatsoever one last time, I pulled up my proverbial big girl panties. Closing the robe provided by the hotel as tightly as I could since I refused to pick up the dress that lay discarded in a heap in the next room, I grabbed the knob and pulled it open to see the person that I was hoping against all hope was still fast asleep, getting ready to knock on the door.
Jacquelyn, an enchantress with an overprotective streak, thinks it's up to her to protect her older sister, Jadine, an enchantress who's also a paranoid hypochondriac. So, whenever a male comes along trying to use Jadine, Jackie gets rid of them, in a non-conventional way. When the last person Jacquelyn expects, a certain vampire she's had a not so little crush on, seems to be creeping around on her sister, she has no choice but to get rid of him, too. In front of witnesses. Only to find out one second too late that she had it all wrong.
Victor, like many males, has issues expressing how he truly feels. When he finally decides it’s time to stop running from fate and claim his mate, he goes to her sister for advice. But, creeping in and out of Jadine’s place like a thief in the night leads the very person he wants to win over to draw all the wrong conclusions. Which leads to him trading in his pale good looks for a white beard and a red velvet suit.
Now that the town knows Jacquelyn is the one behind all of the disappearances, and thinking she’s killed all of those that are missing, they're out for her blood. And the only one who can save her is, well, Santa. But will he be able to make it back to her before it’s too late?
Enjoy a brand-new tale of how Santa Clause came to be.

Lady Killers: from the Jellybean Candy Shop
Be careful what you witch for...
Most serial killers are men, even more of them are human, some aren't either one.
Camille always figured that one day, she'd take over the family business running the Jellybean Candy Shop. She just never knew that murder was part of the deal. Or that she wasn't exactly human. At least the humans she and her friends were tasked with killing deserved it. And since they had magic covering their tracks should be easy peasy, right?
Enter Detective Marquis Jordan. He had his eyes set on the popular candy shop, knowing something was amiss. He just couldn't seem to figure out what. And he wasn't above a little bit of seduction to find a few clues.
Join these witches along with their familiars, an invisible dad and more as they cause more than a bit of mischief, mayhem, and a whole lot of chaos.
"Mommy, why aren't there ever any lady serial killers on the news?"
"Oh, honey", she replied in a genuinely sweet tone, "That's just because women aren't stupid enough to get caught."
"Are you sure this won't kill her?" I heard my mom ask.
My first thought upon hearing that was why in the world would she jump to that conclusion just from me passing out? That thought didn't last very long after I realized I was tied to a chair. And while I no longer smelled the cake, I did still smell candy, mixed in with a few other aromas, like hops, various liquors and an overwhelming scent of copper?
I pried my eyes open barely an inch and saw naked bodies hanging upside down from the ceiling on meat hooks, like in a butcher shop, with buckets sitting on the floor directly beneath them way across on the other side of the room. They were too far away to see for certain but looked as if there were spouts in their throats, helping their blood to flow into the buckets. There were also beer kegs and glass bottles.
Before I had a chance to let any of that freak me out about any of that, I heard the sound of a drill from beside me. I turned my head in time to see said drill coming towards my scalp, yes, of its own accord! I screamed, "What the f--k are you doing!" As I shouted those words at the top of my lungs some type of force - power or magic I hadn't the slightest clue – swooshed out of me hard and fast. It made whatever had me tied down fall to the floor, my mother flew across the room, some of those bodies went tumbling down and knocked over the buckets, and the threatening drill clattered to the floor.
Right before I blacked out yet again, I heard my mom say from far off, "Thank the Goddess, my baby isn't human after all."

Elvira’s life takes an unexpected turn when a wizard hell bent on misplaced revenge kidnaps her and several of her friends.

And having to deal with race issues is the one thing that has never even been so much as a thought to any of them and is the one course not on the roster.
But will everything they’ve learned in the academy be enough to keep them alive? What will they all do when racism stares them in the face? Most importantly, how will they get back home?
Once upon a time... Really? I'm not starting my story off with that lame ass cliché. Fat chance. Not when my story is anything but classic. You can think of this as the life and times of a teenage vampire. A real one, not one that sparkles as though we were sprinkled with some type of fairy dust. Oh! And we’re born, not made by just being bitten, consuming blood from another vampire, or any other legend you may have researched somewhere. The bitten one is the most ridiculous theory any of us have ever heard of. I mean really, think about it, if everyone ever bitten by a vampire were to turn into one how could they ever go back for seconds on the same victim, er donor? Could you imagine how large the vampire population would be? Anyway, you wanna hear my story? Just sit back, grab a pint of blood, or milk, and have a listen.
First off, I don't live in your dimension, I live in a separate one called Underlayes. Where the things that go bump in the night – werewolves, vampires, mermaids, sirens, witches, and so much more – truly are real. Underlayes has regular neighborhoods just like Earth does, we don’t live in a ton of dug out caves, or cryptic looking castles; besides the royals anyway. We used to live amongst you guys, but that was way before my time, and a story way too long and boring for me to bother with repeating. Just know that we all truly do exist and a very few of our number walk alongside you still. So, you may want to think about that before you lay down at night after bullying the school nerd or your shy co-worker. If they're the silent and quiet type they're more than possibly plotting your untimely demise and deciding what side-dish you'd go best with. Or what curse to place on you. Something my Mom should have thought about a long, long time ago.
Me? The names Elvira, yea, Mom and Pops have a sick and twisted sense of humor. Which when you come to think of it is actually a very good thing, since Mom was dumb enough to piss off a witch when she was preggers with me and my brother, Dracula (yup, again with the humor), Drake for short. During one of her many mood swings dear old Mom went completely off on an already pissed off witch; something about the witch crossing in front of her, and Mom thinking that would make us come out cross eyed (and you thought your mom was superstitious, Ha!). Miss Witch decided to do her one better and really did curse us both. I was granted with the gift of being the only vampire known of with NO FANGS! And my poor brother faints at the sight of blood.
