“Writing is my life”
Most writers I know have been creating stories for as long as they can remember. Not me. A few years ago, writing wasn’t even a part of my life. The only thing I saw myself doing was working in a restaurant. Cooking was something I enjoyed, and there is a certain level of creativity that comes with it, but it was just a way to pay bills.
Fast forward to now. Writing has taken possession of me. I get lost in the worlds I create and get excited along with my characters when something good happens in the story. The idea of others reading the story and enjoying it just as much as I did creating it is intoxicating. I proudly declare that I am a writer (although, I’m horribly shy about saying it when I’m face to face with someone.)
Writing has given me a purpose. A way to make a difference in the world, touch people’s lives. There is nothing more uplifting than hearing someone say they read my book and it inspired them to write their own stories. I get really psyched for them. But even if a reader told me all my story did was provide them with enjoyment, I’d be satisfied. I still affected their life.
I can’t imagine not writing. What would I do? I honestly have no answer to that.
Patricia Lynne never set out to become a writer. In fact, she never considered it an option during high school and college. She was more of an art and band geek. Some stories are meant to be told and now she can’t stop writing. Patricia lives with her husband in Michigan, hopes one day to have what will resemble a small petting zoo and has a fondness for dying her hair the colors of the rainbow.

For Tommy, there is only one thing he needs to do: survive.
Only surviving isn’t that easy. The hunt for blood can be tricky when humans know to fear the night. Desire sits on the edge of his mind, urging him to become the monster humans think he is. Vampire Forces, a special branch of police, is determined to turn every vampire to ash. Tommy included.
The only human Tommy can trust is his twin brother. A bond connects them, and with Danny’s help, Tommy starts to understand the human world he struggles to survive in. He’ll learn what friendships means and feel the sting of betrayal, find that sometimes the worst monsters are very human, and come to understand that family means more than blood.
Tommy just wants to survive and he knows what he needs to do. But with the number of humans that mean more to him than a meal growing, Tommy learns there’s more to life than simple survival. He’ll discover being human doesn’t mean being a human.
My name is Cyclop Blaine and I am a real person.
“You are mine.”
I am a real person: heedless of a childhood spent under the supervision of an old man I only know as Master.
“You belong to me.”
I am a real person: regardless of my teenage years bound by violence as the adoptive son of the Victory Street Gang’s leader.
“You will obey me.”
I am a real person: despite the visions I see in others’ eyes. Snapshots of their futures.
“You will cower before me.”
I am a real person: my life will be my own. I belong to no one.
“You. Are. MINE.”
