Hello. Thanks for having me. Today I have a couple of Character Profiles for you from my newest release, Influential Magic.
Influential Magic has two leading men. First up is Willow’s childhood friend, Talisen:
Name: Talisen Anders aka “Tal”
Height 6’ 4
Hair: Light Brown
Eyes: Deep forest green
Build: Tall, broad shouldered, narrow waist, lean corded muscles
Hometown: Eureka, CA
Occupation: Healer, researcher
Talisen Anders, aka Tal, was best friends with Beau, Willow’s brother until four years ago when Beau was murdered in his mother’s lavender fields. Willow and Talisen have somewhat if a complicated relationship. As kids, Talisen teased her relentlessly as a brother’s best friend is apt to do. But as they got older, the teasing turned to relentless flirting. Willow, who’s been half in love with Tal her whole life, never acted on her feelings, as Tal was an equal opportunity flirt, much to her chagrin.
But when Beau dies, the relationship Tal and Wil share turns deeper. They still flirt, but there’s an unspoken understanding that Tal has taken Beau’s place in Willow’s life. Or so she thinks anyway. And she won’t let anything mess that up, even her rampant hormones.
Talisen is a member of the fae, an outdoorsman, and gifted in healing. Back in Eureka, he spends most of his time in the woods hiking, climbing, and collecting unusual stones. He’s an easy going guy with kind eyes who smiles easily.
The other man in Willow’s life is David—her ex that so coldly dumped her via text message
Name: Davidson Laveaux aka “David”
Height 6’ 1
Hair: Dark Brown
Eyes: Midnight Blue
Build: Tall, broad shoulders, muscular, marbled physique.
Race: former human, newly turned vampire
Hometown: New Orleans, LA
Occupation: Unknown- works for Cryrique, the most powerful vampire corporation in New Orleans
Willow met David a little over a year ago when he was still human. He showed up at her shop, The Fated Cupcake, and flashed his gorgeous midnight blue eyes at her and five minutes later he had a date. Their relationship quickly turned into something more, something comfortable that had the ring of forever to it. Until he dumped her right before she returned home to California for the summer.
As a vampire, David’s tall, dark, and brooding with lots of secrets. There’s a lot under the surface that no one knows yet, a lot of secrets he’s forbidden to tell. But one thing’s clear, he cares about Willow, despite the fact he pulled the worst move on the planet with that Dear Jane text.
Now he’s determined to keep Willow safe from a death threat even if means revealing his past, coming clean about his childhood, and destroying any chance of reconciliation.

It’s tough being a faery in New Orleans, a city fraught with vampires… especially when their very existence drains your life-force.
Willow Rhoswen, owner of The Fated Cupcake and part-time vampire hunter for the Void is having a rough week. Four years after her twin brother’s mysterious death, Willow’s life is threatened and the director saddles her with a new partner—her ex-boyfriend, David. To her horror, he’s turned vamp, which causes her physical pain whenever she touches him… and any other specimen of the undead.
In order to save Willow’s life, David agrees to turn double agent against the most powerful vampire organization in New Orleans. Or so he says. And she’s convinced they know something about her brother’s death. Unsure where David’s loyalties lie, she turns to Talisen, her childhood crush, to help her solve the mystery.
Caught between two gorgeous men and a director who’ll stop at nothing to control Willow’s gifts, she’ll have to follow her instincts and learn who to trust.
Otherwise, she risks losing more than just her life.
