Living in the world of werewolves, vampires, and dark magic can have a certain effect on a child, especially when that child is Hassen Mason, who seems destined to bring ruin to those he loves. Hassen was abandoned as a child and was immersed in the world of magic by the strange creatures that raised him. His lineage was a mystery, but no mystery buried in the past can stay buried for long—especially when that mystery is strong enough to span centuries.

An accident leaves Hassen without memories, and he must find a way to remember who he was and what his life meant to him before his past creeps up and kills him. He encounters evils worse than abandonment—vengeful demons and walking dead. Somehow, Hassen’s family was involved in this dark underworld. Now he has to fight his own internal battle: Is he a good guy or one of the villains?

Then he meets Carissa—a woman he suspects he knew before he lost his memory. She has had a similarly troubled past, and although the two of them are from different worlds, they find a common bond that even dark spirits cannot break. Will Hassen’s good side be strong enough to battle the side that longs to be bad? Will Carissa’s love keep him sane, or will the truth about his family finally cast him into the endless abyss of insanity?

How did you come up with the title of the book?

I don't remember how I came up with the title. I tried several and this one stuck.

What is your writing environment like?

It's crazy when my family is home, but almost silent when they are not.

What are some of the best tools available today for writers?

The best tools are books. The more you read the better writer you will be.

What inspires you to write?

Anything I see or hear could give me an idea, or it just comes and doesn't go away.

Did you learn anything while writing this book?

I learned writer's block is a pain and I stink at meeting deadlines.

What is your favorite quality about yourself?

I don't give in to people or pretend to be something I'm not.
