Fangs and Lullabies

Fangs and Lullabies (Vampire Family Romance Novel)A child’s birth. His first teeth and first steps. School friends and bullies, recess, school plays and science projects. A girl, a crush and a broken heart. These childhood experiences are shared by countless little boys from different horizons.

And yet… Jacob is anything but average. For as long as he has been able to understand, a secret has shaped his life, kept even from his closest friends: his father, Andrew, is a vampire. And so is his other father, Nicholas.

In a strange era when demons are beginning to appear all over the world and threaten humans and vampires alike, the three of them form quite an extraordinary family. And yet, at the same time, they could hardly be more normal.

Two fathers raising a son neither of them ever thought he would have. A Sire and Childe resuming their relationship after years of estrangement. Through snapshots covering Jacob’s life from birth to adulthood, discover this unusual family, and how, in the end, all it takes is love.

Fangs & Lullabies: 6 snapshots

In Fangs & Lullabies, Andrew, a vampire, raises his (mostly) human son with the help of his Childe Nicholas. The story starts with the child’s birth day, and continues through a series of ‘snapshots’ up to his teen years.

Here are a few of these snapshots.

Excerpt from Fangs and Lullabies

Andrew stopped on the kitchen threshold and leaned against the door, looking at Nicholas with grim eyes.

“I know it’s been a long time,” Andrew said blankly, “but you’ll need to get back in the habit of listening when I tell you to do something.”

Nicholas bit back a laugh but did nothing to hide his grin. “As you may recall, listening was never the problem. Obeying is.” Continue reading…

Five Eves

In November 2011, my readers took part in a poll and told me which of my characters they would enjoy seeing featured in an anthology of short Holidays stories. Here they are, offered as a token of my appreciation for your support.

Whether they celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or the beginning of a New Year, these five couples have something in common: love.

Demons and Lullabies

Some little boys want to be firemen or astronauts when they grow up. From the moment Jacob understood what his fathers did, he never wanted to do anything but fight demons.

Andrew, Jacob’s father and a vampire, fights demons because it’s a necessity: few others have the strength or skill to kill the strange creatures that started appearing the very night his son was born. He carries with him some guilt, too, and the suspicion that the magic that made Jacob’s very life possible also opened the way for the demons. The last thing he wants is for his son to ever join this fight and get hurt.

As the years pass, however, and Andrew watches Jacob grow up and grow more determined, he slowly has to accept there’s little he can do to deter his son. It doesn’t help that Nicholas, Jacob’s other dad and Andrew’s Childe, starts giving Jacob sword-fighting lessons under the cover of playing, or that Jacob discovers his mother’s diaries and comes to the same conclusion Andrew did concerning his origins and the demons’.

Through snapshots covering Jacob’s life from birth to adulthood, watch all three members of this unusual family change, grow up, and find their place in the world.

Forgotten Lullabies

In the novels Fangs & Lullabies and Demons & Lullabies, I have attempted to give readers a peek into the very unusual family formed by Jacob and his fathers, Andrew and Nicholas, both of whom are vampires. These two stories offer snapshots of Jacob’s and his fathers’ lives from his birth to adulthood.

This sample ebook is constructed the same way, although with fewer and shorter snapshots. Some of them were written as answers to prompts from readers and first posted as flash fiction on my site; some were written specifically for this ebook.

Whether you are just discovering the members of this little family or have followed their adventures before, I hope you will enjoy these glimpses into their lives.
