About Me

My photo
My name is not really Erica Stevens, it is a pen name that I chose in memory of two amazing friends lost too soon.I was born in New York and moved to Mass as a child. I spent my time growing up between NY and Mass so I have some interesting times when sports games roll around. I was fortunate enough to marry my best friend over two years ago and I don't know what I'd do without him. I have a large, crazy, fun loving family that just loves to laugh. My parents are the strongest people I know. I have an older brother and sister, and a younger sister, who have blessed me with many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. I am nowhere near as old as the great nieces and nephews make me sound. I love to read and have wanted to be a writer since I was nine years old. I also write more adult romance novels under the pen name of Brenda K. Davies.

Last Phoenix Rising Trailer!

   He grabbed hold of the first Halfling and jerked it back. Picking it up, he heaved the miserable creature against a tree. The sickening crack of bone echoed through the trees, but the creature was still alive as it slumped to the ground and tried to stumble back to its feet. He ignored it though as he rushed forward to take down the other one. He knew, even before he saw it chewing on Patrick’s flesh that the man was not going to survive. He felt no remorse over it; in fact he felt more remorse about pulling the Halfling off of him and ripping his heart out of his chest.

   The creature’s mouth parted in surprise and then tears sprang forth in its eyes. “Thank you.”

   Devon dropped the heart, disgusted with himself and this hideous situation. “Look out!”

   Devon jumped and nearly toppled over as Cassie’s voice rang through the forest. He spun around as the other Halfling came at him with a hideous shriek and a severe limp. Over the creature's shoulder he spotted Cassie standing amongst the trees, but he didn’t have time to ponder it as he grabbed the final Halfling and drove it into the ground. He twisted its head to the side and swiftly freed it from its neck.

   He looked up as Chris and Melissa skidded to a halt behind Cassie. Luther caught up a few seconds later and took a startled step back. Devon could only sit there and gape at her as she took a small step forward. It wasn’t till part of her arm disappeared within a tree that he realized it wasn’t really her.

Phoenix Rising, Teaser 5

   Luther’s breath was trapped in his chest as he took in the mayhem unfolding outside. He rested his hand on the kitchen sink and leaned closer to the window. Anarchy, complete and utter anarchy reigned as more vampires emerged from the woods in a bloodthirsty wave bent on death.

   “What did they do?” Luther muttered as his heart leapt into his throat. The Elders had come here in the hopes of destroying them and instead they had unleashed Hell on earth. Instead they had lit the catalyst that would most likely end their own lives, and could very well alter the course of history as these creatures had no care for anything other than death and mayhem.

   These were not controllable vampires. These were not creatures that respected the old ways and The Elders that had forged the history of their race. These were creatures that would destroy them all.

   A glimmering flicker pulled his attention away from the invading pack. He’d thought that he’d seen it all, thought that he couldn’t be surprised anymore, but he’d been completely wrong as his heart plummeted into his toes and a cold ice began to encase his body.

   Luther could feel the heat from the blaze even from this distance as the fire beat against the window and illuminated the kitchen. He couldn’t shake the feeling that Hell on earth had just been unleashed, and that it wasn’t in the form of the vampires.  


Round 1 Giveaway Winners!

The winners of the first round of the giveaway are Sheila Goodwin Isbell, Kirstie Pullman, and Claire Goulding! Congratulations! Don't forget there will be another chance to win tomorrow starting at 8:00 am EST time!
