There’s a Vampire Hunter in Town! New British Paranormal Action

Several years ago I was asked by a fan when I planned to write a vampire novel set in my hometown. Not one to disappoint, I set about the task, and began to write a story from my vampire hunters’ series. As yet untitled and still unfinished, here is an excerpt from the novel. I think this might be the year for me to return to my task.

Excerpt

“Dr Worthington,” the man said politely as he stood before her.

She looked up at him without smiling. He wore blue jeans and a red checked shirt.  His blue eyes sparkled with power, and his short blond hair was carefully styled. She knew immediately that he was much older than the mid-twenties age range that he embodied.

“Yes,” she said, “Who are you?”

“My name is Kian,” the vampire replied, “Mr Vance is expecting you. Please, follow me.”

He turned and walked back the way he came. Jennifer looked around the room, but everyone seemed preoccupied, perhaps a little too studiously. Narrowing her eyes, she stood up and followed the vampire, her fingers flexing at her sides as she resisted drawing her guns too soon. The humans were most likely enchanted not to notice the vampires. It would cause chaos if Jennifer suddenly began wielding a gun and fighting with a powerful undead creature right in front of them. She found herself walking into a long corridor at the back of the building, and she noted the exit leading out onto the car park. Kian led her up a wide flight of stairs and stopped outside a brown painted door on the landing above the pub. This was it. He knocked once and then opened the door carefully. Jennifer had to follow. Drawing her guns, she squared her shoulders, let out a breath, and stepped into the room, keeping her back to the wall and the exit in sight.

Young Adult Vampire Fun in The Teen Game

Happy Hump Day! Here’s a little something playful to brighten your midweek slump. It is an excerpt from my first published short story, The Teen Game, featured in Devils, Demons and Werewolves under my maiden name, Catherine Hargreaves.

Excerpt

His mouth was a little sloppy I have to admit but it was certainly exciting to be embraced by such a young boy after so many years! I gradually showed him how to kiss me properly using my tongue, lips and teeth and then I felt his hands slide instinctively down my body, although he carefully avoided my breasts to begin with.  He was so innocent and clearly a virgin.

As much as I liked to torment myself with my little games, I was thirsty; I hadn’t fed all day and was beginning to feel weak.  His pulse was beating against my skin, and I kissed in a seductive line down his jaw until my mouth hovered over that delicate place, and I inhaled his warm, sweet scent.  Then I struck, quick, fast, biting a neat little hole and drinking deeply of his youthful blood. He cried out but it was muffled against my hair and I projected calming thoughts into his mind, persuading him that we were simply kissing and caressing each other, nothing more. He became still against me and when I had finished and pushed him gently away, he swayed a little and struggled to focus on my face.

When he spoke his voice was hoarse. 

“Whoa that was intense! So, um, I should get you home Liz.”

The Vampire of Blackpool Tells Her Story

How does it feel to be a vampire in the modern world? Especially a vampire that has seen the world change over centuries, been at the centre of the royal court, and now lives as a recluse in the North of England? Here is an excerpt from Vampire of Blackpool.

Excerpt

Leaping up into the air, I struggled to ascend at first. My balance was unsteady, and my body felt like a lead weight. Gritting my teeth, I forced my mind to focus, and I managed a swift if unstable flight to the hospital. Fortunately, it was only a short distance away, but by the time I alighted behind a brick store shed in the grounds of my destination, I almost collapsed. I was starving. I was weak. I managed to walk slowly across the road and towards the double doors that led into the waiting room for the casualty department. There were ambulances and vehicles coming and going, but the pavement was strangely empty of people. All the busy life was contained within the building.

Staggering through the automatic doors, I gasped as a wave of sheer exhaustion poured over me. I was descending into bloodlust. I very nearly attacked the first person I set eyes on, but at the last moment managed to control myself. I was surrounded by beating hearts and succulent bodies. I needed blood.  As I leaned against the wall, my breath rasping, my eyes wild with hunger and pain, I became aware of voices approaching as two nurses hurried to my aid.

“Here,” one woman shouted, “Let us help you.”

My Ideal Writing Day

I dream of having time to indulge my writing passion without distractions. Here is my ideal writing day. What is your ideal day?

Photo by Min An on Pexels.com

There are far too many domestic distractions while my children are young, but it is getting easier now that they are growing. Where previously I snatched an hour while they napped, I now have the school day in which to work. Unfortunately, my freelance business takes precedence, alongside my new reiki therapy business, and it takes a lot of time to create social media content and make my name known in the right places. And don’t get me started on the never-ending battle to sell books.

My current day goes like this: I am in the habit of sitting up late due to our being in lockdown and not having to leave the house. Sometimes I work on my laptop at night, doing tasks that don’t require a lot of thought but that still need doing. I wake up around 7am, make packed lunches for school, get dressed, wake the children, get them ready for school, take them to school. Return home and take the dog for a walk. Spend an hour or so doing ‘motherly’ and ‘housewifely’ chores which include doing the laundry, tidying the kitchen and whatever housework takes precedence on that day. I attend to our life admin, booking necessary doctors, dentist, vet appointments, order groceries and home supplies, or visit the shops for them depending on what is possible during the pandemic.

When I finish the mundane chores, I usually have a couple of hours to do what I call my ‘proper work’ before I collect the children from school. I am lucky that they have one day each week with their grandparents so I can drop them off at school and not see them until their dad brings them home at bedtime. The rest of the week is all about my fitting in what I can. I might get stuck into a task, take a break to do the afternoon school run, come home and resume my task for a couple of hours. I can’t work too late because the children need to be fed and sent to bed at a reasonable hour. If I’m not too tired I might continue working in the evening.

It’s an easy life, I know, and I am fully aware that my time for writing will come in a few years’ time when my children can leave the house unattended and prepare their own meals. I am in no way complaining or feeling sorry for myself. Indeed, I am proud of the fact that I managed to write so many novels when the children were infants, and the only reason I don’t do much fiction writing now is because I got busy with my blog and other activities. Reiki practise takes a lot of dedicated time and is important to me. I am thankful to have a career that is fulfilling, even if the income is a little sketchy at times.

#ReadMe – Love Hurts (A Redcliffe Novel) by Catherine Green

Happy Hump Day! Today’s excerpt is from my first novel Love Hurts (A Redcliffe Novel), and we celebrate 10 years since its publication. Wow!

Excerpt

I was barefoot, and almost slipped down the stairs in my haste. I stood on tiptoes, looked through the peephole and saw the top of Jack’s head. He must be looking down for some reason. I flung open the door, and then gasped in horror. He was leaning against the doorframe, his face covered in blood from what looked like a large gash above his right eye, and several scratches and cuts on his cheeks and chin. His clothes were dirty, torn, and bloody, and he fell through the door into my arms.  Instinctively I tried to catch him, and fell to the floor with a cry, trying to support his weight. 

“Jack!” I cried, “Jack can you hear me? Speak to me!” 

#TheRedcliffeNovels

The Redcliffe novels series follow the adventures of bookshop owner Jessica Stone as she meets a man and falls in love, only to discover the hidden werewolf secrets of her close friends. That includes Simon Bunce, manager of the Ship Inn, who turns out to be lieutenant to the Redcliffe werewolf pack, and lover to the wolf alpha Danny Mason. He fights to protect his master from the ethereal animal familiar who threatens to claim their pack. Who knew the Cornish coast could be so deadly?
