The Dark Truth

Book One - The Dark Passage Series

Finalist for the Vampire Film and Arts Festival Golden Stake Vampire Literary Award

"I was a predator. And I was going to own it." 

A Night Out.

San Francisco PR pro Elizabeth Rubis reluctantly agrees to a night out on the town. Little does she know that her life will be altered forever as childhood night terrors come to life. 

A Face in the Window.

Elizabeth's deepest, darkest fears crawl out of the inky blackness as her lifelong tormentor is revealed during a rare Northern California thunderstorm. A hallucination in the raindrops proves to be an evil, yet familiar entity. 

A Baptism in Blood.

Fueled by hatred for her tormentor, Elizabeth cuts a bloody swath across the San Francisco Bay Area in a desperate quest for revenge. No one is safe from her rage, not even her friends and family.



The Dark Descent

Book Two - The Dark Passage Series

A New Beginning.

Elizabeth Rubis, ex-San Francisco public relations professional turned impulse-control-challenged vampire, may have escaped her rocky prison in an abandoned coal mine, but trouble keeps following her bloody trail. The unapologetic Elizabeth better get her act together and fast.

A New Ally, A New Enemy.

Finding a surprising ally in San Francisco police detective Jonas Dietrich, even as she continues stumbling through her transformation, is comforting but a new enemy has emerged - an actual church-trained vampire hunter.

A True Demon.

As Elizabeth discovers new supernatural powers along the way, she continues to evolve into a true demon of the night.
