Author Bio

Travis Simmons was kicked out of magic school for his refusal to study and his penchant for mundane activities like cooking. While selling his sword he stumbled upon dogs that he wrongly thought were magical and imagined he could commune with them. After a vicious zombie attack in which witches helped him push back the undead horde, Travis found himself apprenticed to a necromancer.

Afraid that winter was coming, Travis tucked into his magical studies, but always chased his dreams of writing tales science fiction tales and fantasy stories where he could explore his wild imagination about life on other planets. Adamant that Travis learn the esoteric ways of the occult his master made his life a horror of practice and studies. But no matter how he tried, he could never conquer Travis’ questing mind.

Book Blurb

“Enter the world of O, where a plague of shadows creeps through the land, ensnaring those it infects and turning them into soulless shadow people damned to pollute all of the nine worlds along the world tree. Fear of these darklings, and the magic they possess drives people to kill those that appear different or go against the light.

At nineteen Abagail Bauer should be setting off on her own, not still caring for her father and her family home as she’s doing. The hard life has made her practical, and she has little time for flights of fancy, unlike her sister, Leona, who insists her doll can predict the future. That all changes one day.  While tending their bees she encounters a blackness spreading through the hive. Abagail knows what it is: the shadow plague, the sickness that will creep into ones soul and make them nothing more than a shadow, a darkling bent on the destruction of all things good. And now she’s caught it. She doesn’t believe in other worlds outside of the land of O, but when her father finds out she’s infected he decides to send her to the one person who can help her learn to control this weird power: her Aunt Mattelyn in a distant world called Agaranth, and for Abagail everything she’s believed to be myth becomes a staggering reality.

Joined by her neighbor, Rorick Keuper, on a quest of revenge against the darklings who destroyed his home, and her seer sister, Leona, Abagail sets off across the rainbow bridge to another world in hopes of curing herself of the plague. But Abagail finds that her infection is only the beginning of her ill fate. When she arrives in the new world, she’s far from where she needs to be. Braving the winter of this new land, along with the darklings that hunt her, will Abagail be able to find her aunt before the shadow consumes her, or is she destined to become a husk of who she once was and kill those she loves?”

Bully By Penelope Douglas Review

Blurb…

My name is Tate. He doesn’t call me that, though. He would never refer to me so informally, if he referred to me at all.

We’re neighbors, and once, we were best friends. But then, one summer, he turned on me and has made it his mission to screw up my life at every opportunity. I’ve been humiliated, shut out, and gossiped about all through high school. His pranks and rumors got more sadistic as time wore on, and I made myself sick trying to hide from him. I worried about what was around every corner and behind every door. 

So I left.

I spent a year studying abroad and bathed in the freedom of life without Jared. Now I’m back to finish up high school and get the hell out of here forever. I’m hoping that after a year of breathing room, he’s moved on and forgotten all about me. 

But even if he hasn’t changed, I have. I’m not interested in avoiding him or turning the other cheek anymore. We’re going to go head to head, because neither of us wants to back down.

My Review…

“Do you know what this is?” I took my middle finger and patted the corner of my eye with it. “It’s me, wiping away the last tear you’ll get.”

To start with i loved Tate’s strength. What she had to put up with was not easy, especially at a time in your life where you are so fragile already. Jared definitely ups his game when he sees Tate standing her ground. I have to admit that I did love seeing Tate develop some self-confidence and finally stand-up for herself. Jared’s bullying has left Tate with few friends which causes her to be socially inept at times. It was nice to see Tate blossom and find a backbone and she didn’t take any crap from him she fought back this time i admired her for it, not many would of had the strength to do so but she finally had had enough…
Jared and Tate grew up next door to each other. Jared was sweet, generous and friendly and they were the best and closest of friends. But not anymore. The kid who had held her hand through the pain of losing her mother, who had climbed trees with her, and who had snuck over for sleepovers was gone and now he seemed to live solely to torment her.

“What was worse than losing you was when you started to hurt me. Your words and actions made me hate coming to school. They made me uncomfortable in my own home.”


Tate was the best character in Bully. You really sympathize with everything she’s going/ gone through, but what I really loved was how imperfect she also was. It’s easy to write a perfect, sweet character that’s getting bullied and has never said anything bad about anybody. In my opinion, that would have made the story completely unrealistic. She definitely had her fair share of harming others with her words. It’s easy to get carried away in the moment and regret what ends up coming out of your mouth, so I was glad that Ms. Douglas didn’t just make Tate the harmless victim.

Their relationship was complex, but sweet and you couldn’t help but root for them. There’s nothing more beautiful than friends falling in love with each other. They had a lot of history, some good and some bad, but that’s what made it so strong and just… right.

“I want to touch you.” His words were against my lips now. “I want to feel what’s mine. What’s always been mine.”

We even get a few flashbacks that help you connect to and understand the relationship they had when they were kids.

The writing was simple but kept me engaged into the story. I never wanted to put the book down!

Bully was an easy to read, gripping story about love, redemption and friendship.

“Are you mine?” I asked as I wiped my tears.
He kissed the corners of my mouth softly, and I felt heat rise up my neck. “Always have been,”
he whispered against my mouth.”

The Lycan Hunter Review

22053393

The Blurb…

When Alexis James arrives at her first assignment in months, she anticipates the danger and violence rife in her calling as a Lycan Hunter. What she doesn’t expect is a handsome, blue-eyed wolf saving her life and kidnapping her. Surrounded by the enemy, Alexis must not only survive her prisoners but the bonds of a different sort that begin to form against her will.
Mikko Kyran was chosen by the gods to lead his pack, and he has made it his mission to end the eight thousand years of war plaguing his people. The Alpha never suspected that the key to the prophecy ending the Forever War would be held by a smart-mouthed, sexy Hunter determined to kill him.
Can two people from different worlds set aside everything they know about one another long enough to survive retribution from the Hunters, the pack, and the gods? Or will their differences start a war that neither can win?

My review…

Okay..Okay so i have one word for this book and that is AMAZING! WOW I loved this book! Okay so i should probably go on to tell you why this book is so amazing.For start of the detail that went into this book is extraordinary,authors out there who struggle with this get the book and take note,The way the author described it with so much detail it was easy to picture it fully in your head and made it hard for me to put the book down.

Alexis James (the hunter),who is the heroine in the book is a small but mighty person. She had been through a lot through the book but nevertheless, she still came out like the warrior she is, her strength in this book is amazing and because of this she was perfect for the story and her back story fit into the story line perfectly.

Kyran is the hero in the book, he is a Lycan, not only is he a Lycan but he is Mikko which means he is the leader of his clan. He is a excellent hero who repeatedly shows strength,honor and love not only for his people but for Alexis. Kyran’s and Alexis’s relationship is tricky and seemed more like a love/hate type of thing but it was powerful and i thoroughly enjoyed reading along the journey.

The book was fast paced and filled with good humor and action.I love paranormal romances where the hero and heroine find their true mate. This book took a different view on how Kyran and Alexis could tell that they were mates which was good to read. But near the end of the book i was not happy at all i wont go into to detail about what happened as it would be a major spoiler but be warned.

Overall, it has a great ending, I fully enjoyed the book and hope everyone else. I recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance and enjoys action and humor.

And i hope you all had a fantastic Halloween!!! 😀

But when she meets hunky actor, Jeremy Fowlis, she begins to have feelings for a man for the first time since her three year old son was born.
