COLD IN CALIFORNIA, Book 1, The Twice Baked Vampire Series
What happens to a vampire after he finally dies? Heaven? Hell? Nope, purgatory in a West Hollywood warehouse. Go figure.
Cold in California playfully proposes that even the worst of the supernatural
world gets one more chance at redemption. Twice-baked vampire, Gabriel Strickland, learns this when hes whisked from his final demise and into a holding tank of sorts tucked secretly in West Hollywood . Sixty creatures, including other dead vampires, pixies, a legendary Navaho stick man and bothersome leprechauns, struggle together to earn brownie points (against their natures) and wait out possible centuries of purgatory. Gabriel receives dubious advice from Crudo Cushman, a controlling troll who runs the place, but there are always bugs in the pudding and he faces them all. Enter, the beautiful Dori Gallagher, who not only knocks Gabriel off his feet, but also an evil warlock who has designs on her.
His life after double death is all about balance, but when menacing forces gather against Gabriel and everything hes come to respect, its a fiery clash of supernatural verses supernatural in one heroic effort to save his new reality.
Spend some time with twice-baked vampire, Gabriel and youll not only discover a new mythology, but a new world called COLD IN CALIFORNIA.

MONKEY JUMP, Book 2, The Twice Baked Vampire Series
COVER ART: attached
Twice-baked vampire, Gabriel Strickland may appear to be coping well with the responsibilities his life after double-death has dealt him, but its only show. The struggle to earn his ticket through the Pearly Gates takes a toll when hes directed to perform a Monkey Jump, a program designed to teach newly assigned dead supernatural management how other holding tanks work. To soften the blow, he takes Dori as his assistant. What he wants is peace and serenity to think things through, what he gets is startling temptation, a Soul Eater, and his sidekick, Master Witch and Grand Matron, Neave Brittania Cook. One has a revenge agenda and the other, designs on Gabriels soul.
The Monkey Jump itinerary, scheduled for Phoenix and Seattle , takes a perilous detour to a north Alaskan community of the oldest, most evolved vampires on the planet. Secrets must be kept and Gabriel must protect Dori as well as his own path to paradise. Well hell, this just cant be good.

Nor was having to attend a demonic high school for the magically gifted.
When the most magical thing you could do was set your own underwear on fire.
Life was not going to be easy, even less so with a painful tail that everyone trod on.
Owning a magic sword that always tried to look up your skirt when fighting was not helpful.
But then nor was having a telepathic diary that corrected your thinking instead of your spelling.
