I’m a monster. A literal monster. But I’m a “good” kind of monster. You know, like the serial killers who kill the drug dealers, rapists, and general scum of the earth.
The difference between those serial killers and me? I’m only part human; two-thirds of me is werepire. That’s right, werewolf and vampire. It’s not fun, but I make due. I’m also a therapist; the one these scum pay to… talk to. I listen, sure. But then I have my own personal brand of justice. It gets messy, so if you plan to stick around, might I suggest you wear a rubber suit?

Dr. van Wolfe Saga, Book Two
Publisher: Blacksheep Press
Published: December 2018
It turns out I have residents in the castle dungeons. They’re pretty helpful and we get along famously. I think I’m going to like having them around.
I’m still trapped inside my own body with these idiot monsters, but there’s good news. Dr. Fleming Heilsong heard about my search for a cure through a colleague and contacted me to offer his help. I can’t lie, this whole thing makes me nervous. I don’t want to die but the werepireism grows stronger every day. I’m fighting for my life – my very soul. Some days I think I’ll lose it altogether and so does Teddy.
How much longer can I hold on? Or will the monsters take control?
Excerpt
 
Prologue
Let’s go back to how this all started.  Call it a trip back in time, if you like.  About four years ago, I, Dr. Miranda van Wolfe was not a doctor.  I was still in school earning my Bachelor and Master Degrees.  I was also a universe traveler, though I did not know it in the very beginning.
It started with a dream, or what I thought was a dream.  That following weekend, I heard a voice and not just any voice – not something that sounded human, anyway.  It told me it was going to take me to another universe to set things right there, so the universe I lived in and the one I was being sent to fix would merge.  It really started simply and nicely enough.
Then things started getting…weird.  The universe started referring to the trips it sent me on as errands, and finally, the last trip was a mission.  I had saved my friends and family over and over.  I even had a partner until that last mission.  What I did not ever know, until the very end, was that I was not fully human.  During an errand to an alternate universe to save my friend and her family, I fought, and killed, a magical werewolf with my own formidable magic.  During that battle, I had been scratched and magically healed myself.  I was never able to figure out how until my universe traveling days were over about a year ago.  I all just…ended.  Stopped dead in its tracks.  Hah, stopped dead, what a reference, Miranda.
You see, that last mission was a battle for the entire fate of the multiverse.  There was a woman named Venus who was able to control people’s minds just by whispering into their ear.  My partner Xavier and I had gone to this universe (I had also earned my doctorate the day we left for that universe).  So here I am, being sent on a mission with a man-child I am absolutely infuriated with because he missed my graduation that day, and we wind up in some 1940s style Twilight Zone.  I was stuck in a dress half the time and finally managed to get some gear that allowed me to actually fight without flouncing around like a floofball.
Anyway, I got dark, and by dark, I mean my soul almost left me and had I not still had a part of me that was, err, is, human, it would be gone right now.  So Xavier and I had to go meet up with his doppelganger in 1940s Twilight Zone to get whatever information on Venus we could, seeing how he was already under Venus’ mind control.  There is no way to nicely tell you what I did to that poor man, but suffice it to say I did not kill him.  The weird part was he was so grateful to me for saving his life and breaking the mind hold he let me stay with him until this whole mind control business was finished.  He even bought me clothes, fed me…gave up his bed to me!  I am pretty sure I will never again meet a human that incredibly grateful.

One hundred thirty-nine years ago, Maggie Morton found herself at the opposing end of a campaign to have her humiliated, ostracized and eventually hanged for practicing witchcraft. She was buried in a shallow grave in the back of the local cemetery. Maggie’s lonely spirit walks restless in the cemetery as she continues to search for someone to believe her story and expose the truth behind her death.
Angela Horne is coming back to Ezrah’s Plateau for the first time in over a decade. The town is throwing a weekend long celebration for her great grandfather Caleb, who rid the town of evil back in 1870 and offered it a direction of hope and righteousness. During her stay, she discovers a dust covered diary, over a century old, in the attic of her grandmothers house. As Angela reads, she learns that Maggie was not a witch. She was a scapegoat. Whats worse, someone else knows she has that diary and wants it, and her, put away for good.

Levi Kast was content living his life in the shadows. He didn’t want much, just his dad’s attention and the girl of his dreams to notice his existence.

Instead, he got more than he had bargained for.

Taylor James was the new student at Kennedy High. She was eccentric, impulsive, Gothic and…dark.

She always got what she wanted, and she decided instantly that she wanted Levi Kast. He became her obsession.

Despite Levi’s initial response to retreat from her other world presence, he was eventually drawn to this girl and her obsession of death and ghosts.

But Taylor had skeletons in her closest, including a dead boyfriend, and before Levi could understand them, he found himself her next victim.
