Kirsty d’Arc is enjoying life, until someone she trusts hijacks her soul in this first installment of The Reluctant Reaper series. To escape Hell’s inferno and gain revenge, Kirsty must partner with the very Reaper who scythed her—hunky dead poet Dante Alighieri. 

Life for Kirsty d’Arc might not be perfect, but it’s far from hellish. She likes her job, has a great BFF and truly admires Conrad, her boss. But when she dives in front of a lunatic’s blade to save him from certain death, she finds out Conrad isn’t so admirable after all. In fact, he’s traded her soul to the Devil!

While her body lies comatose on the Mortal Coil, Kirsty’s spirit is dragged straight to Hell…which is not quite the fire-and-brimstone abyss she’d expected. In fact, the place is quirky, wacky, and not without charm. Desperate to reunite body and soul before her time runs out, she seeks out allies, earning the friendship of a powerful drag demon, a psychic server and most importantly, Hell’s civil servant. But what of her growing attraction to Dante, the sexy Reaper with a flair for romantic language—can she forgive him for scything her soul?

Stuck in the netherworld, Kirsty vows she’ll do everything on her postmortem bucket-list, starting with getting her life back and ensuring that Conrad has Hell to pay!

Confession time… I almost don’t want to admit it.

But I judged a book by its cover. Well, not a book, actually, but people. I judged people.

I go to writerly functions… A. Lot. I’m a member of several writer organizations and love to attend lectures on almost any subject. So I often see the same people at different functions.

And there’s a person there who doesn’t, shall we say, present well. He wears ill-fitting, out of style clothes, has greasy hair in need of a trim. But I spent time with him at the last couple of functions and he’s really nice, funny and has an impressive writerly resume. We even have the same taste in books and he laughs at my jokes. What more could I want?

Then there was this gal I met last night at a Kobo function. She was well-put-together, slim, fashionable, about my age. So I figure we’d have a lot in common. Er, um. It was one of those conversations where she kept saying, “I don’t understand what you mean,” when what she really meant was, “You don’t agree with me, therefore you’re wrong and I must keep repeating my argument without listening to anything you say until you agree with me.”

Luckily, thanks to 2 decades of marriage, I recognize this trap when I hear it. I just walked away from the conversation. If I offended her, then great. Hopefully, she’ll avoid me in future.

What has been bugging me all day is, why was so goddamn important to her that I agree with her? In fact, we really weren’t disagreeing at all if she’d only listened.

The only thing I could think of is that my friend introduced me as “our local marketing whiz.” She seemed to react to this so maybe it was terribly important to her to prove the “marketing whiz” wrong so she could feel validated.

Now I just have to use that in a book. 😉

So let that be a lesson to me. I made several new friends last night and I didn’t judge them by their anything except how much fun they were to be with.

And because all blog posts must have graphics, here’s a line from one of my Reaper novels. In fact, here’s an entire sex scene:
