    Will there be any more dream books coming out? I’m completely addicted and finished the series in a week! Thanks!


    • Yep, I’m currently working on Belladonna Dreams, book 9 in the series. This series is open ended… I have no set amount that I intend to write. I love the characters and they are interesting to write with. It will run until I can no longer think of new serial killers!

    I am a new fan! I can’t wait to read all of your books. I have looked on your website for an e mail address and was unable to find one so I posted here.
    If you have an opening on your beta reader team I would be greatly interested.
    If you have any questions for me, please feel free to contact me.
    I hope to hear from you soon!
    Thank you!


    • At the moment, all my beta slots are full for The Dreams & Reality books (however, this will change if I start writing the reality half of the books). I do have openings for The Death Demon Trilogy and The Dysfunctional Chronicles. In the next few days, I will be making a blog announcement for those.

      And I can be emailed at


  3. I am also a new fan, but would love to be a beta reader as well. (On any series) I’m almost up to date on your Dark Fantasy series, and will be up to date on Dreams and Reality very soon as well! Both are fantastic! Thank you!

    Hello I just want to say that you’re my new favourite writer. I just finished Tortured Dream and going to buy the rest of the series. I also read an excerpt of one of Brenna Strachan series and I love it!


    • Thank you! I hope you enjoy the rest of the series as much as Tortured Dreams (I actually think Elysium Dreams is my favorite in the group so far).

    • No release date is forthcoming yet since I still haven’t found my voice after venturing into the rabbit hole and not escaping. Hopefully after February 2nd I’ll have a better understanding of my life.

    Hi. My book club is reading Tortured Dreams this month and I am not sure what kind of discussion questions we should have. This is one of my favorite book series and I wanted to introduce the rest of my book club (Literary Ladies) to it. Are they any questions that you would recommend be asked about this book? Please help me.

    • Every book group that has analyzed Tortured has either focused on the character development or the historical accuracy. I recommend using the characters as conversation points, since my characters drive the plots instead of the plots driving the characters.


  15. And I have finally found a great editor for the series! She has redone Dark Cotillion as of this week and is working on Dark Legacies now. I will be having her go through Illumination and Resurrections when she finishes with these two. It took me six editors, but I finally found a winner!


  16. Thanks! When do paperbacks come out? I need one of each.
