I'd like to welcome fellow Alabamian, and paranormal romance author, Wenona Hulsey to my blog.  A lover of all things written, as a child, she could be found reading anything from Edger Allen Poe to the back of cereal boxes. Today you will find her with an ebook reader glued to her hands, except for when she's writing or spending time with her family.

Now, a little about Wenona in her own words...

How about I start out by telling you a bit about myself?  I like to know the person behind the pen, so why not? I’ve written for as long as I can remember, kept journals off and on from about nine years old, but really got into writing about a year ago. While searching for a creative outlet at a time in my life when I felt like I was living in a rut, this is what came easiest to me. I started working on my first novel, Burden of Blood, and it moved along remarkably fast.  I guess that could be contributed to my recent binge of reading all books labeled paranormal romance.  I had an idea of what I wanted and put it to paper.

As I neared the end of this book a fascinating novelette idea popped into my head and Blood Awakening was born.  It works as back story to two of the main characters in Burden of Blood, giving more detail and insight into who Nicole Keenan and her best friend Kat were before their world was turned on its head.  I would consider Blood Awakening more of a thriller-suspense with a dash of paranormal-comedy thrown in.  But Burden of Blood is full on Paranormal Romance with hot warriors and Gothic fairies in leading roles.

I'm currently working on book two in the Nicole Keenan series which is titled Blood of Fire.  I hope to have this one published in spring of 2012.

Okay, I'll stop yammering and give you all the juicy details about my books, and a bit on where you can find me if you want to chat.  Thanks so much for letting me join you today, Lisa!


Nicole, a small town Alabama girl, and her best friend Kat take a weekend trip to Panama City, Florida. Kat looking to have a good time and Nicole hoping to escape the pain of losing her mother for a little while. Little did Nicole know, the escape would awaken a ancient power that is hidden in her blood. A power that evil wants for its own and will do whatever it takes to have it.

This short story is a look into best friends', Nicole and Kat, life before a centuries old grudge and Nicole's emerging powers rips them apart. A power that Nicole wants no part of as it brings her to her knees and forces her to walk away from her small town life and everyone she loves.

Blood Awakening ebook can be found on Amazon, B&N and Smashwords for 99 cents.

No one wants to know everyone’s darkest secrets, especially not police officer, Nicole Keenan. All she wants is a blissfully normal life in the small, Alabama town where she was born. But as generations of power running through her veins start to wake up, an ancient grudge is ignited that threatens to push her over the edge. She can hardly believe in what she is, let alone that a dark force will not stop until she's joins them. Or is dead.

Nicole Keenan's life enters into a dangerous dance with warriors and gothic fairies. Southern tradition collides with Irish folklore as she learns about love, heartbreak, and The Burden of Blood.


Their eyes locked for what felt like an eternity but, in reality, was only a matter of milliseconds.  Nicole watched anger boil up inside of the man and his face turned hard as stone.  He began to turn slowly, as if he were going to obey, then, with one fluid motion, he pulled a pistol from the back of his waist band and swung it in her direction.

Nicole had already moved to the back of her car before the man had the gun cleared from his back.  He stared in confusion as he readjusted his aim in the direction of the trunk firing off two shots.  “Quick little thing ain’t you?” he chuckled menacingly, “I’m not going to jail bitch.”

Nicole began easing around the side of the car, being careful to stay low to the ground as she moved silently.  She watched the guy moving towards the back of her car with his gun stretched out in front of him, waiting like a snake for the chance to strike.

As soon as his feet were past her front tire, she lunged forward across the hood of her car in a body slide, catching him by the waist while using her small frame’s momentum to send them both crashing to the pavement.  She grasped onto his arms, dropping her own gun so she could keep him from regaining control of his.  With a hard push, the man managed to pull one arm free of her grip.  He slammed his fist into her face with such force it knocked her off his chest, onto his shoulder.  Stars danced across her vision, as blood trickled from her nose down onto her lips.

The man shoved her body, moving her off his pinned arm.  He stood and pointed his gun towards her head as he raked his eyes across her body.  “Maybe you and I should have a little fun before I finish this.  I do like an aggressive woman.” He reached down grabbing a handful of curls that fell from the tight bun she wore and yanked her to her feet.  He began popping buttons open with his free hand as a dark grin played across his face.

Nicole let him get about four buttons open, revealing the ample cleavage which was draped in a black lace bra, to keep his attention while she sent her palm crashing into his nose, causing him to release her in order to cup his bleeding nostrils.  She powered an uppercut into his chin, sending him stumbling backwards, then a quick kick to his knees dropped him to the ground.

The sound of sirens could be heard in the distance as she grabbed the man’s arms, placing them behind his back while he continued to groan in pain.  “Guess we’ll have to put that fun off for a few years, baby,” she whispered in his ear, with a laugh.  “You’re going to jail for a long fucking time.”

Burden of Blood (Book 1 of the Nicole Keenan Series) ebook can be found on Amazon and B&N.
