A Word from the Author
Craving-First Thirst came to me because of my readers who took the time to write and tell me they wanted another vampire series.
My stories are character driven. Everyone who plays a part in the making of a story comes to life and tells me their point of view.
Devin’s character from the start was a given. He is a man whose life is ripped out from under him. Drawn immediately into evil, he breaks away and is determined to overcome the beast within.
Bobbie Skye is my heroine, a witch who experienced compassion and love when her parents were taken from her and her mom’s best friend, Elle stepped up and took her in. Thus, she is all heart, and so it begins. Craving-First Thirst (Book #1)

A Word from the Author
The Darkness Returns is my first foray into the literary world and it’s a little scary finally doing this . I’ve been reading fantasy/science fiction books and playing Roleplaying games for over thirty years and finally wanted to do something that combined the things I love. Writing and creating worlds/characters. I started in 2011 and got about halfway through when I had to stop to work a second job. We lost the house anyway and had to move in with the in-laws and it wasn’t until 2016 that I started writing again. I created the characters from different aspects of characters I have played over the years and wanted the book to be different than most common fantasy books. I decided on describing the antagonist first, with detail as he wasn’t just a shadow of evil, he was there, real and deadly so the readers know what’s coming before most of the heroes in the book do. I also cut out a lot of the travel descriptions. In the hundreds of books I’ve read over the years I’ve seen tons of description needlessly dragging on (three pages to detail the door they are looking at or the road they traveled on for days) So while it is descriptive, I also cut to other scenes when the heroes (or villains) aren’t really doing anything you need to know about. If something needs mentioning, I can bring it up later in conversation. I have only sold 19 books (and 1 ebook) since June but of the people that have finished it, I have only positive reviews. (including 1 on amazon and two on my facebook page for the book) The only fault is that I couldn’t afford an editor so the punctuation is off here and there. The style I have is different, switching POV with each character so that the reader gets a full gambit of how each character is seeing things or feeling about what is going on, and the whole story is blended with rich sarcasm and antics. I am currently writing book 2 (35k words so far) and have plans for the third book, plus another trilogy set before this series as well as more books set after these books.

Sebastian’s Moon is a picture book for children by David Villanueva Jr..
“Sebastian’s Moon” is a story about Sebastian, whose little brother Riley passed away, so he thinks his brother lives on the moon. When Sebastian tells his mother that he misses his brother, she tells him that they will see him again one day. With the help of his friends and the aid of a shooting star, Sebastian embarks on an adventure of sending his stuffed brontosaurus and blanket to the moon so that his little brother isn’t lonely anymore, and making the promise to never forget Riley.
A Word from the Author
Sebastian’s Moon is about a boy’s adventure to send a gift to the moon. With the aid of a magical spider that spins a web trampoline, Sebastian jumps above the treetops to catch a shooting star as it soars towards the moon! Trying to catch a shooting star has never been more inspiring.
Sebastian’s Moon was inspired when a teacher had her class write author David Villanueva Jr. a letter on what they wished for. A boy wrote that he “wished for the moon” because his brother had passed away, and he thought he went to live on the moon.
