Death is just the beginning.
Enlightenment just took a strange detour. Welcome to LonePine, Wyoming, population 438. It's like any other small, slowly dying town in the American West. Only with more vampires.

Blood and Whiskey is a story of love, loyalty, loss and sacrifice in the modern American West. With meditations on the nature of good and evil, a new cosmology for vampires -- including a shared meta-consciousness where vampire (and human) minds reside between deaths -- and a cast of gritty, quirky, realistic western characters, Blood and Whiskey tangles the vampire and cowboy myths into a groundbreaking new "modern gothic western" genre.

In Book One of the series, The Cowboy and the Vampire: A Darkly Romantic Mystery, perpetually broke, down-on-his-luck cowboy, Tucker, falls hard for Lizzie, a whip smart, big city girl and hotshot reporter. She falls hard for him, too. Things get complicated when Lizzie finds out the awful truth about the undead heritage coursing through her veins. Tucker, with a little help from his Dad, his best friend and paranoid survivalist Lenny and his overly-sensitive cow dog Rex, take on Lizzie's maniacal vampire father and his beautiful consort Elita. It's a blood-spattered undead apocalypse of terror and tumbleweeds.

In Book Two, Blood and Whiskey, the "vamp-sanity" and mayhem continue as Tucker, Lizzie and the rest of the gang tackle the afterlife, a cold-blooded killer from the old west and a war brewing between the vampire nations. Lizzie is pregnant, with a growing, unquenchable thirst for human blood. The most powerful vampires from the ruling clans are headed to LonePine to test her new powers and if they find her lacking, everyone in the tiny town will be destroyed.

Dating the undead isn't Tucker's only problem. Lenny's niece has been snatched from the streets of Portland, Oregon and he turns to Tucker for help. It's an inconvenient time to take a road trip, but sometimes friendship trumps common sense. With a duffle bag of improvised weapons, he sets out for Portland with Lenny to find the kidnapped girl.

They end up in remote Plush, Oregon, where -- smack dab in the middle of the sagebrush desert -- they uncover a human blood farm run by a fearsome cowboy enemy resurrected from the Old West. His name is Henry Plummer and his sights are set on Lizzie.

As the truth about what they have uncovered dawns on Tucker and Lenny, they rush back to LonePine. The Vampire illuminati have already arrived, including Rurik, a handsome Russian vampire angling to take Tucker's place next to Lizzie.

How far will Lizzie and Tucker go to protect their unlikely love? Can a cowboy and a vampire ever hope to find happiness? Is death really the ultimate high? Find out in Blood and Whiskey.

From the Author:

Why write?

The expected answer is that writers have to write, but that sounds a little bit like an addiction or an obsession. We don't have to write, we like to write. We enjoy it, in fact we love it. And we love connecting with people who love to read. It's a powerful thing to hear that our books offer entertainment and escape from the humdrum, that they can make you look at the world a little differently, give readers a delicious little jolt of fear and, hopefully show that no matter how messed up and dysfunctional you might be (and we definitely write what we know), there's someone out there who is the perfect fit.

Sure, that perfect match may be a vampire who hungers to take human lives, or a down-on-his-luck cowboy barely holding it together, but love is what makes life worth living. Our books are powered by the same crazy energy, passion and glorious dysfunction of our own opposites attract relationship.

We love each other, we love working together and we love writing, and it comes out in our books.

So back to the original question: why write? For love, of course.

From the Back Cover:

Wanted: Lizzie Vaughan, Dead or Alive.

Relationships are always hard, but for a broke cowboy and a newly turned Vampire, true love may be lethal. After barely surviving an undead apocalypse in The Cowboy and the Vampire, Tucker and Lizzie hightail it back to quirky LonePine, Wyoming (population 438), to start a family. But she's got a growing thirst for blood and he's realizing that mortality ain't all it's cracked up to be when your girlfriend may live forever. With a scheming Vampire nation hot on their boot heels and a price on her head, how far will Lizzie and Tucker go to protect their unlikely love?

Blending evolution, religion and an overly sensitive cow dog named Rex, Blood and Whiskey drags the Vampire myth into the modern west, delivering double-barreled action, heart-pounding passion and wicked humor.
