“I’m everything they speak about in whispers.  I’m the evil that travels through the mist at night.  I am the bringer of death the whole world fears…”

Richard can’t remember who he is. And can’t die. And that’s getting old, too.

Until Maggie bursts across his threshold one night during the 1700s. Her light against his darkness bends his head. And then a vicious pirate captain, Billy the Black Death, with a secret almost as old as his own teaches him he’s not the only one with an inhumanity problem. But he doesn’t want to be like him. He doesn’t know him. He swears he doesn’t.

For a moment in time, Maggie becomes the mirror of self-examination Richard doesn’t want any part of while it tears him apart. He wants to be left alone. He has misery to stew in. Why can’t everyone all the way into modern day Southern Ontario, Canada take a bloody hint?

To his undying exasperation, everyone is looking for him – the living and the undead. He can’t seem to turn his back on them, no matter how much he bitches and moans. Apparently? He’s not capable. Which is strange for a guy with an inhumanity problem. Except when it comes to Billy. When he crosses him for the last time?

Richard leaves the guilty human yardstick behind.

Sure, he goes off half-cocked, but that’s not really the problem. The problem is he can’t remember the bloody problem. Sumerian gods are calling shots from the wings, but Richard doesn’t know them, either. At least, he doesn’t think he does. One of his strays, Allan, digs into his forgotten past and gives Richard more than he bargained for. While fate continues serving up an existence in unexplainable harmony with people he doesn’t know. Or he could be going crazy. He thinks he remembers the Middle Ages. And the Roman Empire. And Babylon and Egypt. But that’s not possible. He’s only an herbalist. Okay and maybe a vampire.


But from the cheap seats? It looks like Sumerian gods, young vampires, ancient magic, and the outcome of his blood feud with Billy might decide the fate of the whole entire world.


Amazon review - Blood Runner books

“A pantheon of gods, pirates, and vampires and at their midst, Richard, an enigma. This was a truly fascinating story full of great characters, vivid descriptions and very unexpected twists. The interweaving of Sumerian myths into the storyline was particularly intriguing… I cannot recommend this book highly enough – a totally unexpected delight.”  See:  Amazon Review


“The characters in the story are strongly portrayed and they remain in the minds of readers for a long time after they finish the story. The narration is descriptive and detailed, bringing the characters and story alive.”Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite   See:  Readers’ Favorite Review


“I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys vampire books (although this is a spin on vampires that I have never read before). I would also recommend Blood Runner to anyone that enjoys mythological stories.”
