Dismantled centuries ago, the sword of Goliath is still rumored to thirst for its enemies’ blood. Cole “Tox” Russell only wants to begin his life with Haven Cortes, but he must first complete a final mission: retrieve that sword and destroy the deadly Arrow & Flame Order.

The AFO, however, is determined to claim the sword. Wielding their father’s life over Tzivia and Ram Khalon, they threaten to expose Ram’s long-held and dangerous secret while demanding Tzivia locate the sword. With the Wraith team slowly being torn apart, things only worsen when Mercy Maddox, a new operative, emerges with the stunning news that the sword is tied to both Ram’s secret and a string of unsolved serial murders.

Tox, Ram, and the others are forced to set aside fear and anger to focus only on the enemy. No matter the cost, Wraith must stop or take the enemy down with them.

What part of the country do you consider home?

Although I grew up an Army brat and am currently in the northeast, I have spent most of my life in Texas and consider it home.

Currently, how big (or small) is your household?

My husband and I have four children, two of whom still live at home with us, along with our two dogs.

What do you do when you’re not writing?

When I’m not writing, I’m either reading or doing crafting (handmade cards, crochet, bookmarks) of some kind or decorating/painting our new home.

Is there any habit or hobby you have that might surprise readers?

I think most people are most surprised to learn I’m a 2nd-degree black belt in taekwondo.

You’ve just turned in your manuscript, and your editor won’t return it with revisions for at least a week or two. Where would you go for a vacation?

Somewhere (anywhere!) to spend time with family, unplugged.

Are you a dog or a cat person? What does that tell us about you?

For most of my life, I was a cat person, but in the last dozen years or so, that’s shifted—mostly because of the dogs we’ve owned, including—most recently—my retired military working dog, VVolt N629. And I think that I’ve loved both speaks to my flexibility and heart toward God’s creation.

What was your favorite childhood book? What made it so beloved?

I think I’d prefer to say my favorite childhood author—who was Richard Scarry. I loved his books!

How many unfinished book ideas or manuscripts do you currently have?

Oh, my gracious—I have absolutely no idea. In fact, I just saw my agent this weekend and he pulled up the list of my old books in his archive, then his eyebrows winged up and he said, “Huh. Your list in my archive has its own archive.” I’m always creating and churning over story ideas and concepts.

What’s your favorite movie? Favorite TV show?

I think both movie and TV show depend on my mood at the time and genre. Largely, I love Doctor Who, until the last few seasons. I’ve watched the 9th, 10th, and 11th Doctor’s episodes several times over. As for movie . . . for a romantic/classic one, I’d have to say the BBC’s North & South (which is more a serialized drama than a movie), and for a sci-fi pick, probably the new Star Trek iterations.

If you were casting yourself in a movie, which actor or actress would you pick?

Ack! I have no idea. Though she looks nothing like me, she did play Wonder Woman and it’s often a wonder I finish anything, so maybe Gal Gadot. LOL
