The Cougar is my new novel. It is a Gothic Romance. I have always loved telling stories, but I also thought a novel would be a huge task. When I was working full time it was basically the word count that scared me off. I wrote plays, articles and poems, but shied away from the novel genre. After all, wasn't everybody else doing it? Then one day Berenice came to me in a dream and asked me to tell her story. Who was I to refuse? The Cougar was born in the month of NaNoWriMo - not as part of it because I had forgotten all about NaNoWriMo - but kind of parallel to it. So, who is Berenice? Well, she is a little like Katherine DeNeuve in The Hunger, very beautiful, very elegant and very ancient. She is an idealized me in many ways except that she is a shapeshifter and a vampire.... Well, that is all I am going to tell you for today. If you want to know more, you must visit her page on Amazon where you can learn a little more and if you have Prime you can even borrow her tale for free!
