Good vs Evil

Here's a taste of the GOOD and EVIL in PURGATORY REIGN
I'm going to take this moment to reminisce over the creation of my most Evil Villian.

Gavin Steele from Purgatory Reign, which comes out in ebook February 2013 and print May 2013.

First, let me give you his Bio:

Gavin Steele is thirty years old, gorgeous, fit, blond, a billionaire owner of a multi-million dollar company that specializes in exotic metals, bio-genetics, drugs and uhum some other sordid dealings. He has a obsession with killing things slowly and slicing them up. Also, he's a loving older brother to Lucien who was created to do his bidding.

Note: this isn't the final edited excerpt from Purgatory Reign

Gavin knew from experience he’d only have a short time to get his answer before the greedy one would consume the spirit in which it hid and demand the price. “The name of the one who can stop me, the one I should remove from the equation,” he demanded from the psychic.

She hissed, and her white pupils turned on him. “Peter. Peter Saints.”

Her body jerked from side to side in an attempt to fight her way free of an invisible force, but it was too late, the price would be paid. For one moment, shock and fear laced her expression before she slumped to the floor, permanently silenced. He slipped his hands into his pocket, pulling out rubber gloves and a knife that he calmly unfolded. For a brief moment he stared in space while in thought. 

“Peter. Peter Saints.” the sound of the name left a foul taste on his tongue.

Shrugging off his jacket, he grinned. Messes, he hated to leave messes. And tonight, like all the other nights, he’d clean it up.

PETER SAINTS is Sixteen years old, large for his age, has an attitude problem, and grew up in an orphanage.

 Interview with Peter
            Describe where you sleep.
Sleep? Man, who sleeps in an orphanage filled with kids who all got the stink of a chip on their shoulder? But if you wanna know where I lay my head, it’ll be a toss up between the hole in the cellar on a raggedy mattress or in the converted pantry closet of the orphanage. 

Where do you have a scar or birthmark? Describe circumstances surrounding your scars.
You would ask me about it. The scar – or gift, Hanna told me it was. But she put it there, right on the palm of my hand, as revenge I think – for causing her death. I’m not talking about it anymore, cause it’s something no one’s supposed to know about. Haven’t figured out why yet, but it scared Pastor Finn to death when he saw it.

What is something you feel guilty about?
Guilt. Now that’s a word I’m not wanting to hear. I got a lot of it, and it all stems from the fact that I’ve caused the death of at least three people I cared about. I don’t know why, but I’m cursed or something. And even with the death of my parents, Hanna’s death, in my heart I know I caused it.

Describe yourself sitting in your favorite spot.
In the cellar. I’m alone there. And me being alone is probably the safest thing for me or anyone around me.

What do you do to have fun?
Dancing is my thing. I love to do it. I sneak out of the orphanage all the time to go to the club, dance and joke around with the girls there. When I’m not doing that, I like to tick off Pastor Finn so him and I can fight it out, then he takes me on the back roads to drive his sports cars. Don’t let that get out about him letting me drive his cars, the other kids at the orphanage don’t know, and if they did, they’d probably start ticking him off as much as I do.

What kind of girl would you fall for?
I like my girl gorgeous with some fight in her. She can’t be a pushover, but she’s got to love me – only me, cause I don’t share. Ever.

Loving Signing Books!

Well I guess now I'm a book signing veteran. I’ve been doing signings now for I about three years. But the most memorable one I’ve done has been at Walker Mill Middle School. It’s a school just outside of Washington DC and they have a great and positive school staff that works with smart kids that are navigating through some major struggles.

This last time I visited there, the school had a tragedy. A young 8th grade girl had attempted to commit suicide in the school. The kids were highly sensitive as it was apparent that the situation was caused by bullying.

Even though I was signing books, talking to the kids about finding their own inner strength, my heart was breaking for them. During my book signing portion of the day, a young girl came up to me, with tears in her eyes and hugged me. Then she thanked me and told me that me giving her one of my books and signing it just for her was the nicest thing anyone had ever done for her.

Moments like that are – priceless. Priceless.

I hold that moment to my heart and every time I sit down and write, that girl and many other young people on the poised to become someone great encourage me to keep writing stories for them.
