I just wanted to thank Rhianna and the Geektastic crew for letting me stop by! I love this site! I’m always learning something new, laughing, or relating here.

I like it when the heroine gets to kick a little… booty, and be the center of attention in a non-damsel in distress way. Coming up with Laurel K. Hamilton as t the writer I longed to one day be compared to, how could I not? * winks.  When I watched Vampire Diaries I rooted for Bonnie. I preferred the mean girl, book version of  Elena to the watered down, need to be saved version presented in the show. I love Lost Girl because the woman handle their own. I could go on, but I know you get the picture.  Maybe it’s because I was named after Super girl ( No I’m not kidding check  it out here). That female comradery runs in my veins.

My heroine from Keys to Heaven, Heavenleigh, embodies that strong female lead. Now, when I say strong, I mean more than just physically fit. I think being mentally tough, dealing with the ups and downs, disappointments, and pressure that comes with life is just as admirable as being able to run triathlons, maybe even more so. Half angel, half demon, Heavenleigh  has been through the ringer.

Sarcastic, witty, unapologetic, and brass, she hides her vulnerability behind her tough girl persona. Something I think a lot of us can relate to.  When an angel falls to heaven right in front of her, all the rules change. The birthright always thoughts to be a curse turns out to be the deciding factor for the fate of the human race.

I’lll be giving away a copy of Keys to Heaven, and a one of a kind pendent to one lucky commenter who answers the following question.  If you could be any supernatural creature, what would it be and why?

Born to a fallen angel and a demon, Heavenleigh Spirit has never truly fit in. Shunned, tested, and ridiculed, she’s hardened her heart, building a wall around her none are allowed to scale. Carving a life for herself running the neutral bar, Purgatory, she caters to all things winged , clawed, and other. Provided they play nice. When she breaks her middle of the road stance to rescue a newly fallen angel she gets more than she bargained for.

The amnesic angel awakes in the bed of the only woman he’s ever lusted after with nothing more than the knowledge he was sent to protect her. Struggling to remember who he is, and why she’s in danger, he fully embraces the passion between them that blazes hotter than hell fire. When the truth about his mission comes out he must fight to convince her the love they share is real, and he’s not going anywhere.

In an ironic twist of fate the woman cast aside for a birthright she never asked for holds the keys to the worlds ruin or salvation.

If you’d like to follow Heavenleigh’s story you can purchase the book at the following places.
