This is where I’m featuring a practical ‘thank you’ to all the writers who’ve been so good as to provide a review of A Freebooter’s Fantasy Almanac.
Today it’s my great pleasure to feature another author friend, fantasy/horror geek and kindred spirit from RRBC, ROBERT KIMBRELL
ABOUT ROBERT KIMBRELL by ROBERT!
A lonely only child, (in the seventies, mind you), little Robert could be seen running in the backyard playing superhero, with a bed sheet serving as his cape. He also spent many hours drawing or writing in his mid-sized Ohio town.
Through the years he has been rewarded with two beautiful daughters and a wonderful wife who actually tolerates his sometimes unorthodox style.
Having also battled depression earlier in life, Robert now sees how his low points have brought him to a more creative, stronger sense of being. Now he is where he wants to be, and is telling the stories he is meant to tell.
His other interests include reading, motorcycle touring, fitness and classic movies.
ABOUT ROBERT’S BOOKS
Because Annie has no recollection of her birth parents, her life is full of unknowns. Still, she seems relatively content with her simple existence in Washington, DC. Marcus, her new Italian boyfriend, adds much desired spice to her life despite secrecy about his position at SecureVest. But when Annie becomes mysteriously ill, it is the catalyst for a life far from simple.
Seemingly by luck, Annie discovers that she is maturing into a dhampir (a vampire/human hybrid), and to survive she must feed on fresh human blood. With Marcus fully aware of Annie’s predicament, they concoct a scheme: find the evil living among us and act where justice does not.
Vigilante Annie is born.
In trying to adjust to her new life, Annie feels like a stranger in an unfamiliar land. Because Annie yearns to belong, she confides in father-figure Larry. When Annie finds out her friend Elisa works at SecureVest, where Marcus is employed, things unravel beyond control, and forgotten years from Annie’s childhood make themselves known piece by piece.
Will Annie be able to satisfy her body’s cravings and stay alive?
Who wants to use her for their own agenda?
Can Annie trust Elisa’s friends?
Will she ever have the chance to meet her mother?
In the end, will Annie be a slave to those who would use her, or will she have an opportunity for a freedom she has never known?
Rhythm of My Heart – Poems from the early years of Annie Scarlotte
This collection of poetry compliments the Vigilante Annie ebook series. It is from the early years of Annie’s life, before she became a human/vampire hybrid, (dhampir), these are the poems she wrote. You will no doubt gain some insight to the lonely life she lived before the big change, and will relate to some of her feelings and expressions.
“Colors fade to gray, then to voids of a time I cannot remember
Does a monster exist beyond the door?
If so, I would hug it, just to know.”
