WELCOME TO LAMONT, COLORADO: a quiet little town nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. It’s the type of town where people know each other by name and see each other every day. It’s the type of town where things like murder, fire, and anything supernatural just don’t happen.
But Lamont is about to get a new resident–a resident who carries these things wherever he goes, and leaves the land scorched in his wake.
When the disappearances begin and things start going bump in the night, there are only a few of the local townspeople who notice and decide to act. For them, protecting their town from this new evil is the only thing that matters.
These lonely crusaders will have to confront their own disbelief and doubts–as well as those of their friends and neighbors–to face a foe unlike any they could ever have imagined.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I love to write, and I am always trying to find a way to expand my horizons and try new things with my writing. I have never written (or at least, never finished writing) a fantasy type of story, because I was afraid of getting it wrong. After reading the original Dracula book by Bram Stoker, and watching a lot of old episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I finally got the courage to write A 21st Century Fairy Tale. I put a lot of work into my stories, revising and editing until they have the right flow, but with this one in particular, I went over it again and again, adding scenes and rewriting and revising until I felt like it was complete. I’m pleased with how it turned out, and I hope readers are, too!
