Second, I've been really into 'theme' birthday parties recently. There are so many options from a Jane Austen Birthday Bash to a Marie Antoinette/French Chic Party, etc. This year I'm even putting together a theme party for a relative. Everything from gifts to decorations are based on her favorite theme - Paris. It's been fun - lots of pink and black accents, shabby chic gifts and wrapping paper. Even a few goodies from one of my favorite shops Bell'Occhio.

I'd love to know what you would consider an awesome birthday theme party.

While you're here, enjoy the short blurb on my latest book - Shadows of the Soul, and my upcoming novella - McNamara's Ghost.

When a Grigori prince and a demon huntress team up to find the antidote to a supernatural disease, the balance between good and evil is forever altered.

A fallen angel...
A human scholar...
A race against time...

Isabel Godfroie Heart is a Paradisian Scholar-an immortal human trained in the ways of Heaven and Hell-who's suffering from memory loss. During her last battle, a dark force erased specific portions of her past life memories. Now she remembers little of times past, save for the fact she's a demon slayer mentored by the archangel Gabriel. When ordered to a new post to help translate a volume of ancient text from a forbidden verse, Isabel is forced to work with the dark prince Nicolai Valentine, a soul who may or may not be responsible for her memory loss. If only she didn't find the tempting creature so hard to resist...

Born to a fallen angel and a mortal mother, Nicolai Valentine is a prince of the Grigorcov, the children of the fallen sons of God. Searching for the lost chalice that will save his kin from eternal damnation, Nicky unknowingly unleashes the Hadean Virus, a dark entity targeting members of the Grigorcov. Now the entity has been unleashed on man's world and Nicky's in a race against time to find the antidote that will stop this deadly parasite. But in order to keep the Hadean virus from attacking again, Nicolai must enlist the help of Isabel Godfroie Heart, the Paradisian Scholar he was unable to save from the wrath of Hell centuries ago...

Locked in a deadly battle with his evil warlock brother, immortal witch Hugh McNamara sacrifices his own life for the sake of protecting the ancient Irish Ogham Stones--the sacred script of Ireland's legendary hero.

But when his once-beloved Julia returns to the place of his death, Hugh is stirred from a centuries-old sleep and vows to take back that which was once his--life, liberty, and love...

When parapsychologist Juliann Moss purchases an 18th century tavern in Staten Island, she expects to meet with the occasional bump-in-the-night. After all, she is also an immortal Irish Fairy Witch. But after vowing to give up magic centuries ago, being drawn back into the world of ghosts, warlocks, and ancient witchcraft is a bit more than she bargains for...
