About the Book
Khovahsh Burgoos, an elitist demi-shifting reincarnate, is a nine thousand-year-old member of the Dragonhead Ancients…. Alicia Chay, the sadistic queen of torture, ruled for forty centuries under the identity of someone else. With a family of savages as her fledgling, she detests mortals, but she loves feeding on them for blood.
She became a vampire, built The House of the Hounds and created a treaty without clearance from the Dragonhead Ancients or the Queen Mother, Armona. Alicia hunts down insubordinate vampires that illegally use human bodies to snub precious animal life.
Meanwhile…she is being observed by Khovahsh. He has direct orders to deceive her, but he has his own agenda. When they encounter each other, a chain of events compromises her life and opens the door for Muzzle, an angry villain, to threaten her for turning her back on The House of the Hounds.

Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?
I wrote this book when I was 21 years old in 1998 and completed the entire series in three months. It started as a 40 page short story about Alicia Chay, a vampire forced into a life in the darkness against her will, but she winds up becoming The Queen of the Hounds, and overthrowing the Queen Mother, ruling for forty centuries as someone else, abandoning the Crown of the Hounds. Khovahsh, leader of the Dragonhead Ancients, not only has to keep her safe, but he’s in direct opposition of her reign. When her life hangs in the balance, he has to battle Muzzle, her nemesis, to save her life.

Be unapologetically you. Write to express yourself, and let that leave an impression on your readers. Everyone isn’t going to like what you write, so write from your heart and edit with your gut. Make your moves in silence. Do your research on the publishing industry and learn about contracts, rights, and copyrights. Always protect your voice.
