Chronicles of a Teen Supernatural Hunter

Surprise! My three Supernatural Hunter stories starring the Jaz and Blake duo are now combined into one collection titled Chronicles of a Teen Supernatural Hunter.

The stories included are as follows:

  • Short story Darkness Becomes Him previously published in Prom Dates to Die For
  • Short Story Mermania previously published in Something Wicked
  • Supernatural Hunters previously published as a standalone novella is no longer available separately.

Here’s the blurb and the new cover…


Life was never dull as a teenage supernatural hunter.supernaturalcoversm

Teen supernatural hunters Jaz and Blake are orphans, who don’t know where they’ve come from or how they have descended from the magical bloodline of hunters. Oz is a powerful Warlock and mentor who has taken in Jaz and Blake to teach them the ways of their destiny. Here are their magical adventures in two entertaining short stories and one novella. . .

In “Darkness Becomes Him” Jaz and Blake are hired to track a dark angel hungry for souls.

In “Mermania” Jaz is bitten and things are getting fishy around Chapel Hill.

In Jaz and Blake’s novella, Supernatural Hunters, one of Oz’s previous students returns to Chapel Hill. Marco is a world-traveling hunter, asking for help to battle something they have never battled before: a Necromancer. Could this be the reason ghouls have been causing havoc around town? As Jaz and Blake attempt to follow the clues of the dead, they are faced with Blake considering leaving Jaz and Oz for greater hunting adventures. While Jaz discovers she could be the one the Necromancer really wants. Is this the end of Jaz and Blake?


I’m very happy to have all three stories together for readers to follow along on Jaz and Blake’s adventures. Will I write more Supernatural Hunter stories? It depends on you, the reader! If you enjoy the series share your thoughts on Amazon reviews or Goodreads or even twitter or your blog. Let me know that you would love more adventures and I’ll do my best to write another story for the series.

Thanks and happy reading!

Prom Dates To Die For: Now Available!

It’s finally here! Prom Dates To Die For is officially released! Copies are available in print and ebook. And I’m thrilled to share an excerpt of my short story included in this fun young adult anthology. Introducing Jaz and Blake – Teen Supernatural Hunters – in “Darkness Becomes Him.”

“I’ve heard things about you guys… strange things.”

I didn’t have to look at Blake to know a smile curved his mouth. I studied the girl standing in front of us, from her tiny designer boots to her preppy clothes to the sleek blonde hair. Her cheeks were pale, her eyes a little too wide. She said her name was Alexandria.

“Yeah, what kind of things,” I said, and bit into my apple.

She glanced over her shoulder at the other high school preps mulling around Westside High during lunch break, reached into her back pocket and pulled something out.

Blake bumped me aside as he snatched it away from the girl’s hand.

I cursed as my half-eaten apple hit dirt.

“It can’t be…” he murmured.

The girl stepped back. “W-what? What is it?”

Blake moved closer, likely giving her the iced blue intensity of his gaze. I knew that look. We’d caught another case. “Where did you get this?”

She swallowed. “My boyfriend. There’s something wrong with him. He’s not the same since last week. I’ve been finding these all over. We’re supposed to go to prom in a few days. I need help. Your kind of help. Tiffany Wiser. She told me about you. How you helped her a few months back.”

Yeah, the Tiffany girl, filed under Z for Zombie. As in, the infection of her brother. We’d caught it early enough before there was no going back for the kid.

“Okay, we’ll help you,” Blake said.

“For a price,” I cut in from behind Blake. We had to eat.

“I heard. But I don’t have much money. I work at Donna’s Diner. I close Tuesday and Thursdays. I can hook you up with some hot meals.”

Score.

“Give us your contact info. We’ll be in touch,” Blake told her. With a look of relief, Alexandria handed Blake a paper with her cell number and email.

“Listen, just don’t tell anybody what you’re helping me with, okay?” Alexandria turned and jogged away.

“So,” I said, and peered over his shoulder. “What’s so interesting?”

A feather. Glistening black with silver dust.

Blake ran his fingers over the fine surface. “It’s an angel feather.”

“What? That’s impossible.”

“No. It’s angel all right.”

“You mean—”

“A dark angel.”

YA Anthology: Prom Dates To Die For

Hello Friends! I’m excited to tell you about a new paranormal anthology titled PROM DATES TO DIE FOR published by Buzz Books USA. A fellow writer friend, Heather Dearly, let me know about this cool Prom-themed collection and I wrote up a short story titled “Darkness Becomes Him”.

May 1st is the official release date and you’ll be able to read 5 Prom stories with a paranormal twist!

A Night They’ll Never Forget. Five young adult authors cordially invite readers to five proms with a paranormal twist: – In Kelly Parra’s “Darkness Becomes Him,” teen supernatural hunters are hired to save a prom date hungry for souls. – Heather Dearly introduces us to a young reaper haunted by a past she doesn’t remember in “The Bone Flower.” – A prom queen seeks justice and revenge in Lena Brown’s, “Every Breath You Take.” – Aaron Smith gives us a loner musician called to save his classmates from an enemy only he can see in “A Kiss at the Threshold.” – Jenny Peterson’s heroine gets much more than she wished for on her prom night and 18th birthday in “Tonight, You’re Mine.” Frightful, fun and unforgettable.

Here’s what two of my awesome friends have said about the anthology so far…

“Prom Dates to Die For is a deliciously dark collection of prom-gone-wrong stories guaranteed to keep you curled up on the couch until you reach the end.” ~ Amanda Ashby ~ author of Zombie Queen of Newbury High and Fairy Bad Day

“Prom as you’ve never imagined it, with five talented authors unleashing their paranormal best in this memorable, page-turning anthology. Appearances by a dark angel, a ghost, a soul stealer, a demon hunter and a time portal help make Prom Dates to Die For a guaranteed pleaser for young adults and adult readers alike!” ~ Tina Ferraro, author of Top Ten Uses for an Unworn Prom Dress and The ABC’s of Kissing Boys.
