Book #1 in the Gryphon SeriesAll 18-year-old Celeste Garrett wants is to head off to college and make those fun, yet ill-advised, choices college kids are known for. And maybe to spend some time with the hot cameraman she just met. Instead, because of a pact her ancestors made in the 17th century with a mythical creature, she has to save the world.
While normal kids are slamming energy drinks and cramming for exams, Celeste will get her adrenaline rush fighting a fire breathing dragon. She wants to meet friends in the quad to exchange lecture notes, but first she must exchange blows with a shapeshifting demon on the rooftop. Life isn’t always fair for a superhero, but at least she doesn’t have to do it alone. With her brother and sister as sidekicks, they alternate between saving lives and getting on each others’ nerves. Together the trio encounters unspeakable odds, mystical forces and comes face-to-face with an image that will haunt them forever—their grandmother in a leopard print bikini.
Okay, little side note here. If a psychopathic killer asks if you want to see a trick, say no. That’s the smart thing to do. I, on the other hand, responded, “Bring it.”
Book #2 in the Gryphon SeriesWhether she likes it or not, eighteen year old Celeste Garrett has come to terms with being the Chosen One. She knew having a “normal life” would be tricky, between intense training sessions and epic demonic battles, but she didn’t know at what cost it would come. That is, until a dear friend is harmed by the malicious forces hunting her.
Now, she’d like nothing more than to retreat into a hermit lifestyle to prevent anyone else from getting hurt. But startling revelations, amazing new abilities, and mortifying moments in front of insanely hot guys won’t allow time for that. Soon, Celeste finds herself surrounded by darkness and wondering who she can trust—if anyone.

Dracula's Lair/The Darkest Tower
The Angel Prophesy - ‘The flaming sword, forged by God, can be possessed but by one hand alone – the single hand of destiny… Courage, born in his heart, will carry the vital answer. How he will come to his destiny will bind or free all of humanity for the end of times…And in the end, the Truth lies somewhere in the shadows…’
The Dawn of the Apocalypse is at hand. Where heroes will rise and the trial of evil will come to pass. The time: 1450 – a perilous time. The location: Northern Ireland, in a little village, obscure from any notice. Except, that is - a child is born, and dies – all in the same moment. Birth, life, and death all come in a flash. But his life is not over – it’s only just begun.
This is no ordinary child; a child of destiny – Daniel Mulligan. Daniel becomes an angel, and a warrior, the 13th in an elite legion of angels. Their mission: to preserve what good remains on earth and to destroy the evil that now lives in the deepest parts of humanity. But Daniel must carry the true heart of mankind’s survival – a flaming sword, forged by God, for him alone to carry, as a weapon and a crucible for all humanity.
Their foe is the patriarch of evil – Satan – the leader of the dark trinity, with the devil & Lucifer at his hand. But they have aligned themselves with Dracula – not Bram Stoker’s vampire Dracula, but the real, more sinister evil which truly lived and ruled all of Romania – the real flesh and blood Dracula. Will this supernatural and very powerful alliance, along with an amassed warrior army of demons enable them to rule the world? And at last, enter into Heaven, overthrow God, and reign over every corner of the universe?
Earth's landscape is soon to be reshaped – but for which fate? For good? Or evil? Earth will try to defend itself, but the magic and wizardry that is conjured up will be powerless to prevail against this dark trinity and Dracula. Evil lingers in the abyss of night and cast the world into a perilous journey of fate and misfortune. Only the epic quest of Daniel and his Angel warriors can challenge it.
But Daniel is torn between the family he never knew, the heart and love he is discovering, and his duty to all mankind. He will be thrust into an unknown paranormal world and time where he must choose between his family and humanity; a choice with terrible, unintended consequences; a fateful decision he must bear alone.
God and Satan will soon collide. The forces of Good and Evil / Heaven and hell will immerse all of earth into a battlefield of galactic proportions. High upon the most evil lands, in the darkest tower of Dracula’s castle - a climatic battle will decide the fate of all mankind. There can be only one victor. One who will write the final chapter in the Chronicles of Good and Evil.
Daniel Mulligan will live to see this day come to pass… Not as a mortal man, but as his unpredictable destiny unfolds, he will discover the legendary angel God has destined him for. The epic journey is to begin; the golden wings of a most special angel are ready to take flight; Heaven will pause and hell will shudder, but the majesty of one sole, humble angel will rise on the winds of his own destiny – and the dawn will rise with him…
