Hi, I’m Carla Roma and welcome to Bandit Creek, a small town with a mountain of secrets. And this month has been a doozy. Go figure that it would take Steena Holmes to discover one of the beloved pastors of Bandit Creek had the biggest secret of all. But first – let me tell you how I met Steena. There’s this little chocolate shop in a beautiful town called Banff, Alberta. It’s off the main street but local gossip had it that it was quite possibly ‘the best chocolate’ you’ve ever tasted. So of course I had to check it out. When I walked into this shop, there was this woman wearing a gorgeous silver scarf at the counter. She was literally drooling over one of the displays. She picked up a sample piece of fudge and the look on her face was priceless. It was as if she’d been raptured. Did I just possibly meet my chocolate soul-mate?
Steena: Well of course you did! Was that not the best piece of chocolate you’ve ever tasted?
Carla: I’ll admit it. Yes it was. And that’s saying a lot since I’ve been to the chocolate factories in Switzerland and Germany. I’ll never forget the look on your face though–
Steena: Orgasmic. It’s still my favorite.
Carla: Okay, that made me laugh, considering you write erotic romance under a pen name. I have one question for you – is there chocolate in your Thriller “Unknown”?
Steena: Really, Carla…do you even need to ask that? My writing motto is “in the end, everything succumbs to chocolate”.
Carla: Forget I asked :) Okay, let’s talk about secrets.
Steena: I love secrets! Especially when they belong to someone else and I get to figure them out. Like Nathan Hanlin, ex-pastor of Faith Outreach. His secret is huge.
Carla: Here’s a question that I’m dying to know. Why do you emphasis that he’s an ex-pastor? Does that make a difference?
Steena: Sure does. Nathan is a man who gave up everything to serve God only to have his life literally fall a part. His idyllic marriage was about to end, he has major mother issues and then poof – his pregnant wife dies. He has every right to be angry at God. He actually says he doesn’t believe in God anymore.
Carla: I know that has to be significant for a reason. Care to share?
Steena: Remember that little café we met in when you asked me to write a Bandit Creek story?
Carla: The one with the chocolate scones? Oh wait … I see where you’re going with this. The Nephilim.
Steena: Exactly! Wasn’t that scone delicious? Yes, the Nephilim. This story is basically about a man whose world is about to get rocked. Big time.
Carla: But that’s not all that it’s about, is it?
Steena: Sure isn’t. There’s an old ancient myth that’s come to life, demons show up out of no where, demonic crows are talking out loud and one of the most loved characters may end up dead.
Carla: Dead? Oh Steena, did you have to go and kill one of my darlings?
Steena: Sorry Carla. Nathan’s father (a fallen angel btw) has a plan and he’s not willing to let anyone get in the way of that. Even if it means he has to kill them. You’ll have to wait to see though – Nathan may just in be time to save a life. Who knows! Nathan’s story doesn’t end in Bandit Creek though. You can follow his journey of discovering his true identity beginning December in Nephilim Arise.
Carla: I’m still reeling that little tidbit you just revealed. Okay, so Devil Unknown is definitely a story for the history books of Bandit Creek. Make sure you pick up your copy today. Available on Amazon and Smashwords.
