Urban Fantasy with a Catholic Bent


My E-fantasy, Syzygy is now also available as a soft-cover book through Lulu. Get it here. 
My copy just came in the mail and I'm pleased! My niece's artwork looks beautiful on the cover. You may not be able to tell from the blog photo, but the character, Bea, is holding a Rosary. :)

Here's the blurb from the back cover:

*~*~*

A young patient in a mental hospital (who refuses to reveal his name) will only speak to one other person, Miriam, who has lost both a son and a husband. Alternately pensive, then manic, the unknown patient tells Miriam a fantastic love story she suspects only came from his imagination. The truth of his tale won't be revealed until the end.

The tale is this...

A super-human criminal agent goes rogue to protect the girl his secret organization, The Fir Na Gealai, is after.

When the leader of Finn's enclave orders him to find and kidnap Bea Jones, Finn falls crazy in love and betrays family and clan to protect her, though in Fir law, traitors are killed.

Getting Bea to return his affection proves more of a challenge than beheading his fellow mobsters and computer hacking.

This fast paced urban fantasy touches on life, love, depression, and true friendship.

Here is the blurb from the Lulu web site:

Syzygy, (a popular E-book, now in print), is a story within a story. A young patient in a mental hospital won't reveal his name. He'll only speak to Miriam, a patient who has lost her son and husband. Alternately pensive, then manic, the unknown patient tells Miriam a fantastic love story she suspects only came from his imagination.

The tale is this... A super-human criminal agent goes rogue to protect the girl his organization is after. When the leader of Finn's enclave orders him to find and kidnap Bea Jones, Finn falls crazy in love and betrays family and clan to protect her, though in Fir law, traitors are killed.

Getting Bea to return his affection proves more of a challenge than beheading his fellow mobsters and computer hacking. Bea is funny, sometimes awkward, and basically kind. In short, she's your average young Catholic woman who abruptly learns she's the target of a paranormal-mob ring. This fast paced urban fantasy touches on life, love, depression, and true friendship
