“The Devil You Know”

 made the FINALIST list for the Page Turner Screenplay                          Award. 

This is the first step in achieving what is at the very top of my bucket list. 

Yes, I have one of those. Most of the entries are author career related. The one at the absolute top of the list is to get one of the books on screen. Whether it is the big or the small screen–think Netflix or Apple plus–doesn’t matter. I would love to see my story brought to life.

I know, think big, right? 
Now the major question; How?
Well, like everything in an Author’s career, it takes a good story and lots of work. And even more marketing and networking. Get the books out there. Get them noticed by people in the film industry. 
But it’s hard to find a way to do that. One way is to join competitions aimed at screenplays and book adaptations. 
I researched, and researched, and researched.
This led me to the Page Turner Screenplay Award. 
It’s a competition aimed at discovering great new material for film and TV series. The much acclaimed awards are judged by people from the industry. Producers, screenwriters, authors of filmed material, read the material entered in the competition, whittle all the entries down to a list of finalists and finally to a winner. 
The stories are judged on their merit and their saleability to the film industry. 

There are lots of categories in the screenplay awards: screenplays, book adaptations, films, and series. The awards have spawned several film and TV productions. This makes them very popular. 
Now, I am not alone in wanting my book filmed. There are hundreds, thousands of authors just itching for the chance to have their books read by the industry. And you can imagine how many people entered their best manuscripts in the Page Turner Screenplay Awards. 

So when I received a mail from Page Turner that I was one of the finalists in the screenplay awards, I was on cloud nine. Can you believe that? Out of the literally hundreds and hundreds of entries I made the finalist list. That means the jury thought the story in “The Devil You Know” is film/tv material. WOW!! Mind blowing.
I never thought I would make the finalist list in the first try. 
Regrettably, I didn’t win the contest, but I am very happy with the result I achieved. 
And, as I said, with what it means. I’m on the right road. The story has potential and I’m going to run with it.

And here are some great books from friends. 



I lost my father in the last attack against the dragon shifters. Now the Academy Council wants me to go undercover to live amongst murderers in the hope that if I can kill their King it will bring peace.
Then, I meet my teacher, Billy.
Harder to fool.
Harder to stay away from.
If he discovers my secret identity, I’m dead!

If you like the action of battling war between two nations, the attraction of dragon shifters and the tension that comes with lies you’ll love this page turning paranormal romance.



Our kind has been enslaved by the Fae for as long as this kingdom remembers. They need us to keep water in their kingdom flowing, without it, their kind would surely all perish, as not even the powerful Fae have control over the waters that feed life to everything. Somewhere along the line, they all lost that ability, as if that element revolted against them.

For over twenty-one years I’ve been kept in the dark about my true heritage, being raised as a witch, like my auntie, that can wield water with spells. Soon I would be old enough to leave my childhood home and go beyond the protection spell that has kept me safe all these years to seek out my destiny.

A vision—perhaps even a prophecy, in the castle where I was born caused my parents to secret me away under the cover of darkness. I was saved by an unlikely partnership.

For the first time in thousands of years, the elements are set to combine into the greatest power ever known, and somehow I am the center of it all.

The power of the elements are told to bring about peace in the lands and restore life in the realm to a greatness more than it has ever been before.

No more struggles for food, no more starvation. No more taxation with penalties of death. No more hatred and fear of the rulers of the kingdom. Only prosperity, health, and maybe even something more?



According to legend, when the world was young, the goddess Issaura appeared among men. Those who treated her with kindness received the gift of the gods—the ability to transform into an animal form. This was a great honor but one that separated this race from other humans. Before Issaura departed the mortal realm, she promised to return if her people were ever at the point of destruction.

Now a threat is rising from a land across the mists of the ocean, a threat that will push this race to the brink of extinction. Responding to the call to war, seventeen-year-old Lluava heads off to find her destiny, one that will carve her name in history.




In the search for a cure to a viral pandemic, scientist Liz Meyer discovers something far more deadly…Vampires exist.
