Lauri J Owen is a civil rights lawyer who grew up in Idaho's Treasure Valley. She started reading fantasy novels in the third grade, and other than taking time out to sleep, never really stopped. The oldest child of a homemaker and police officer, Lauri worked for more than a decade in law enforcement. But Lauri's not-so-secret passion is social justice, and so in 2002 she decided to become a lawyer.
After completing U.C. Berkeley's law school Lauri moved to the Alaska Bush, where she fell in love with the magic and majesty that exemplifies that state. She was selected in 2006 for inclusion in Who's Who of American Women directory in part for her commitment to civil rights. She currently lives in Arizona with her son and her many rescued cat companions.
Lauri donates the royalties from sales of Fallen Embers & its sequel, Blowing Embers, to no-kill animal shelters.
His frustration with his grandmother grows when he discovers she has moved the beautiful, voluptuous, green-eyed blonde and her freeloading brother into the house that he's supposed to inherit.
Sparks will fly—and Pam is up to the challenge.
Born before man recorded time, I lived for thousands of years believing myself to be something I’m not.
Someone I’m not.
Lied to and betrayed by gods, Daimons and Dark-Hunters, I’ve struggled to find my way in a world where I’ve been cursed since the moment I was prematurely ripped from my mother and planted into the womb of an innocent woman who thought me her son.
Trained as a slayer and predator, I learned to fit in and stay low. To become a tool for evil. Until I was sent to kill the one woman I couldn’t. My hesitation cost her her life.
Or so I thought. In an act of betrayal that makes all the others pale in comparison, I’ve learned that this world is an illusion and that my Phoebe still lives.
Now I will have to travel into the very pits of Hades to try and save her, even as everyone around me attempts to steal what little soul I have left. There’s only one person at my back and I’m not sure I can trust her either, for she was born of an enemy race. Yet sometimes the road to redemption is one that singes us to our very core. And if I fail to find the answers I need to save Phoebe, more than just my wife will die.
We will lose the world. Both human and Daimon.
