I’m Luna, and I’ve been in the Twilight Zone since I moved in with my sister and her boyfriend.

I sense their secrets in every corner of the house.
Gabriel is eerily beautiful, and his personality disturbingly perfect, while Gaia’s inexplicable PTSD and mood swings bounce her between bliss and despair.
Until Gabriel’s brothers pay a visit.
He’s the night to his brother’s day. He’s sex personified and the devil in one hell of a stunning package. It’s been years since I last saw him, but this man makes me burn. He hooks me with his touch. Enthralls me with those oddly simmering eyes. He pierces my soul with his knowing smirks, and I am losing myself in him.
With pearlescent hair and spring green eyes, he crashes into my world. I thought this crazy, beautiful man could mend my bleeding heart. Make things recognizable again—normal. Instead he pulls me from the embers and feeds me to the open fire.
College life. Is this what everyone goes trough?

Disappointed, horrified, shocked. I raced home on my bicycle. One thing was that he’d cheated, freaking slept with someone else—it was beyond words. But what about Margo’s reaction? She’d fought tooth and nail for Ka’s attention. Her fixation was the final trigger to questions I’d bottled up for too long. Now, my mind hopped around clutching puzzle pieces and needing to fit them together.
What if Kakabel isn’t making anything up?
A stab of anxiety made my stomach hurt as I listed off the evidence.
Vicky and I always talked about how “out of this world” beautiful these brothers were. Their pull with girls was straight out abnormal—even guys went all misty-eyed on them. Fast and agile,
they all moved like wild animals. In my peripheral vision, Gabriel and Cassiel appeared to shimmer…even though they didn’t whenever I stared right at them. Their irises fluctuated in a range of colors I’d never witnessed on people.
I leaned my bike against the porch and sank down on the step. Needing to calm the fear, I covered my face and breathed into my hands.
You’ve got to keep your feet on the ground!
A soft, furry cheek stroked the back of my hand. It was as if Zeebs wanted to comfort me. I peeked out between my fingers and met his yellow stare. All relaxed, he seemed so sure of everything.
I giggled out a short breath: talk about going haywire, here.
Angels, if they existed at all, would don giant, white wings and white robes. They wouldn’t be super-hot guys slouching about in wife beaters or Levi’s, and they definitely wouldn’t be jonesing for girls. Not to mention knocking up people’s sisters! I laughed out loud.
Yeah, angels wouldn’t get mad and swear up a storm. Beat the hell out of each other and get themselves locked up in the mad house. I wiped an eye, curbing a fit of hysterical laughter.
I’d been through so much over the last months. Anyone could short-circuit under this kind of pressure. I was strong, though, and a couple of sexy dudes weren’t going to make me snap.

I write New Adult fiction with a paranormal twist and don’t shy away from romance and heart-wrenching passion when necessary.

I moved from Norway to the United States in 2001, and the first awesome five years I spent in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles. Then I read “The Book,” aka Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, which spurred my husband and me to move cross country to beautiful Savannah, Georgia.

I’m currently on my seventh year in the Deep South, where I enjoy the heat and the humidity. Besides writing, I spend my time with our “petting zoo” as in an opinionated parrot, a herd of cats that are experts on keyboard shortcuts, and puppies that…uh, bark.

I hold a Master’s degree in languages, with concentrations within literature and linguistics. I taught at college level for a decade before settling in as a graduate adviser at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Writing is my passion, my joy, and my addiction. When I’m not writing, I read.
Shattering Halos is my debut novel, and its standalone sequel, Stargazer, is due out later this year.
