The Vampire Within

Current Project:


Brandon Cass is not your average teenager. He has a taste for blood, human blood. For sixteen years, he stumbled through life without a hitch until…the enigmatic aroma of blood awakened something dark within him. Visions of a beautiful young woman with chocolate-brown hair and ocean-blue eyes haunt his mind. He finds himself hopelessly in love with her; yet, her identity is a puzzling mystery.

The hunger for blood strengthens, and his cravings are too powerful to control. No one is safe, not even his family. To safeguard all he once found dear, Brandon sets out on a quest for answers. In a foreign city, he comes face to face with the young woman he so desires, learns of the dark force which controls him, and most importantly, what he must endure to reclaim his soul.
