Of course I’ve gotten distracted from Margot n Nori by another story. It happens every time I get close to the end! It’s gotta be psychological. Any who, this is an unedited snippet from my next paranormal tale, the second in my colored demon series. The first was How to Love a Blue Demon.

She’s an Oscar-winning movie director turned novelist, who’s fled LA and the movie business for Chicago and a new career writing books.

It’s still coming together, but I already love them. Oh, and Lou is British, in case you trip off the dialogue in later snippets. This excerpt is a flashback of the last time Lucky saw his family. It’s sweet rather than sexy. But you know I got you on that in a few. Hope you like it! – SS

He needs his mother, his family. We cannot trust his welfare to strangers, no matter how well they have been vetted. He is ours.” Continue reading
