“Mercy is required.”

-The Good Shepherd: Volume One of the Werewolf Warden Series by D. Marie Prokop.

Leona Schaeffer is more. More than a seventeen-year-old girl. More than a lonely orphan.

She’s a Werewolf Warden. Inheriting an ancient strength and an ancient burden.

Summoned to the frantic streets of Gilded Age Boston, Leona must enter a world as unfamiliar as it is wondrous. A world of danger, populated by sheep in need of a shepherd.

Without the benefit of a mentor, Leona struggles to continue the noble legacy of her parents: Help the weak. Protect the innocent. Exact mercy. Maintain the peace.

Sadly, not everybody wants peace.

Despite the burden of her heritage, Leona is headstrong and pure-hearted. But can she resist the forces threatening to tear apart everything and everyone she cares about? Death, failure, heartache, responsibility, and family trouble conspire to tarnish Leona’s good intentions.

Mercy is required.

St. Lucia “Wait for Love” | Sidewalk Sessions

I can’t believe what I saw yesterday
Too many people trying to walk away
Now I believe that you may disagree
That there’s a reason right in front of me

When are you going to start
Making up your heart?
It is never too late for love to come back
I don’t know where to go
I don’t know who to show
There’s nothing left but to wait for love…

Get St. Lucia!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Books make great gifts. Read my new novel, The Good Shepherd, and travel to 1905 Boston this winter…TGS-Cover-Final-cropped-for-kindle

Flowers – Diane Prokop

It’s still Winter, but Spring is on it’s way!

I wrote this song years ago and it still remains one of my favorites. It’s an ironic play on the mantra “everything’s going to be okay.” Okay is pretty subjective. Besides, sometimes it’s not going to be okay. Sometimes that’s good. We are forced to change and grow. This song reminds us of what we can do in the midst of this not-okay-ness. Flower. Grow, wait, look pretty. Survive as long as possible, doing what you were made to do. Everything, including flowers, is temporary.

In Days of the Guardian, the Captain advises Ainsling to do what is necessary and what is possible. In time, she’ll find herself doing the impossible. On my best days, I believe this is true. Do you?

Hazel And Howl by H. K. Snyder

“Hazel didn’t expect to enter a different world when she explored the woods behind her house. A shadowy beast discovers her, pursuing her with malicious intent, but Howl—a mysterious creature with a patchwork pelt—saves her. Howl leads her to safety and into Hidden Country, a place filled with incredible beasts and countless secrets. Hazel must join Howl on a perilous quest to change his fate. All the while, a malevolent entity haunts Hazel’s dreams and threatens to overtake the pair before their task is completed…”

Live On A Pig Farm

She felt quite strongly about him already. Is this love? Is this
what it feels like? Wonderful, light, as if she were floating on
air. Just the thought of his pretty eyes made her stomach flutter.
If he asked her to, she would live on a pig farm.

Hustle and Bustle

Again, Clementine was thankful they lived in Boston. She
loved the sea air, the changing leaves on the trees lining the
streets, the hustle and bustle. She imagined she would grow quite
bored caring for sheep or tending to a field. Nothing could
change her mind.
