Author Bio

Crazy woman from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ... forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

Well Hello Church and Emma!!! Boy oh boy…What a ride Preach takes you on! As you see, this is book 2 of the Church duet. You must read Church, #1 before diving into this one. 

“You be the thunder, and I’ll be the lightning.
You be the cloud, and I’ll be the rain.”
“Forces of nature.”
“Of destruction.”

With these two dominating the world in their own little way, the way that they both feel most comfortable with, maybe peace will be found after all! The ‘confessions’ that come about in reading this story from all parties involved, give us a better insight on how these two function the way they do.

I feel like I’m in a ‘Pucked’ up Hardy Boys story. 

That was my thought exactly while reading this story. Not only is there the what’s happening now going on in this book…there is also the background story evolving.

Really must ask him about those stupid holes. 

Because how can we not know what those stupid holes are there from? It’s the little things that mold these two together perfectly. How one truly sees the things that are happening around that are so, so terribly wrong. Yet when trying to do the right thing, it backfires. All while the other is sitting back watching…watching the right things come out yet, no one is listening. 

What a journey these two have been on! Emma truly was a gift to Church. One that was given by the one person who totally threw me for a loop! 

Great job to Stylo for weaving this story and bringing it to life for us to enjoy!!! 

Stylo is in her trademark Twisted genre and seems so comfy in her seat. it's hailstorm of destruction and mayhem on the pages. Tread cautiously as all characters ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM, and your emotions with turn full around. What you hated, you'll fall in love with and whoever you loved, would surprise you into stupefication like disovering a whole lotta basement hidden underground!!!
Book is big on revelations and confessions, puzzles and dilemmas, whodunits and whydunits!!
Pray to Church and get all the answers. Only they're undecipherable and leave you more confused than before you asked the question. This is a very strange religion. 
IN-FUCKING-DEED!! I left more ponderous and slack jawed than I'd entered with. Punches fly fast and furious, every character is gnarled and contorted in some way or the other. I was literally scratching my head and questioning my own "Normalcy"馃槷
Jesus, was anyone normal? Did normal even exist? 


“You be the thunder,” 
“And I'll be the lightning. 
You be the cloud, and I'll be the rain.”
“Forces of nature,” 
Demoniac Love story about two warped souls so hysterical in passion, that they go about destroying the universe and stealing pieces to embellish their own haunted house. They wear blood on their faces as warrior paint, they pick and choose their victims and where Church Paul Logan is a meticulous planner, Emma Hartley is an impulsive monster. Acting on intuition and whims, she makes a heady mistake of not thinking it through and trying to fly by the seat of her pants.
Church had long since made peace with the fact he was a monster. He even embraced it to a certain degree. She was weak, and when it had really mattered, she hadn't been able to do the same. This had been her moment . Her act of revenge. Her chance to leave a path of destruction. 


Events unfold and repercussions happen and Church is left to do the manor clean up and wind up.
Yet they keep on encouraging each other's devilish desires, feeding the ravenous beast that is their soul.
If that's not the most fucked up story I've read recently, I don't know what is
You're the handle , and I'm the head of the hammer. 
You swing, I deliver the blow. 
The story left me wondering about the conflict between Nature & Nurture. 
Would they both be so broken and monstrous had they not been abused as children or there's threads of venom already running through our DNA, just some flare up and overpower the good that's inside of us? 
Would they still be the arsonists who set the world on fire regardless?
I guess we'll never know. Keys to psyche are forever lost and doors to their dark personalities have been shut tight like basements....
The characters of Church and Emma are like mirror souls. So similar yet so opposing.


“If you weren't broken anymore, then I wouldn't be able to love you the way I do.”
“What's that supposed to mean?”
“It means in order for us to fit together, we already have to be in pieces. My pieces can't exactly fit if you don't have any edges. If you're already whole.” 
They may not be perfect people, but they were perfect for each other at least. In book 1 Church has used his most potent weapon-manipulation to make her do his bidding. 
Book 2 SHE turns around and throws the gauntlet for HIM to cross and prove his loyalty, earn his place by her side.
The first time around, she'd had to prove herself , prove her loyalty, to him by doing anything fucked up thing he'd asked of her. Now it was Church's turn to prove himself by doing whatever fucked up thing she asked of him. 
Emma is impulsive and whimsical, I pictured her as a wannabe shadow who wanted to stay with Church even in sunshine. Stubborn and sometimes tantrum throwing brat, short on patience but trusting just the same.


Church was a manipulator plain and simple. Master of bending wills and moulding thoughts, he plays Emma like a harp. His skilled handling of her and protecting her always gives him a God like Aura!!!.
“You, Church Logan, are the cleverest sociopath I've ever met.”
“Worthy of worship?”
“Worthy of hymns and gospels and all the books in the bible,” 


But there's a mega surprise in the book!!
A character that is jaw dropping psycho and behind the scenes guide of sorts!!! 
It's a psychological love story with threats, dangers, blood and gore at almost every stylo manages to weave poignant threads in the dark quilt of viciousness is beyond me. How she comes up with such twisted stories is I think a million dollar question!!!. 
Maybe it's the worm in the bottle of her tequila that's doing the trick!!. 
Keep drinking and keep hallucinating these stories for us Stylo!!!
5 winks here and 5 nudges there !!
