Hi there!! I LOVE to hear from my readers, so you can click on the icons above OR leave a comment on my website – I always get notified via e-mail.

Paranormal & Fantasy Fiction Author

I’m an author of paranormal and fantasy fiction, and I love all things magical! My adult stories tend to have strong romantic themes and usually some pretty HOT sex, so I do NOT recommend my adult fiction for anyone under the age of 18. You have been warned! However, my young adult and children’s stories (written as Christine Davies) are more than suitable for younger readers. Those stories are also fantasy fiction.

I love to create detailed worlds and very  layered plots, creating the type of books I love to sit down and read before a warm, cozy fire and disappear into another world! I hope you like them, too.

My Past Experience Contributing to My Writing

I have been a content editor at two publishing houses as well as a cover designer and I still freelance a few graphics projects for fellow authors – swag, book covers, website headers, etc. You can see my online portfolio here. Before I was able to publish my first novel, I was paid as a writer composing dozens of technical manuals, training and organizational development materials, software quick reference guides and corporate communications for two large movie studios (20th Century Fox and Sony Pictures Entertainment). I was also a software instructor at these studios, using the many training manuals I created. On the side, I was a web designer and I do all my own websites today using the fabulous WordPress platform. LOVE WP!!

In my free time, I love to play Landmark and Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Other little tidbits about me that might interest you:

  • I am a Desert Storm Veteran – I served 5 years in the US Air Force and was stationed in Germany, England and Turkey. I spent a total of 6 years overseas.
  • I am a certified hypnotherapist and the study of psychology is a hobby of mine. (GREAT for character development)
  • For a few years I was an actress and did some voiceover work, which I now apply to the podcast I host at www.pnrradio.com
  • I was born in Chicago, Illinois (do NOT pronounce that with an “s” at the end…it is silent! Obviously, that’s a pet peeve of mine…lol)
  • My husband and I are planning to retire in Ireland…or at least somewhere overseas.

    I love the bonded by blood series. I read my books on iBooks and was wondering when the third book would be available on that.

    I am dying to know what happens next and have recommended the series to my book reading girl friends.

      Hello, Kristen!!

      I am just THRILLED you’re enjoying the series!! *Does the Snoopy dance* And thank you sooooo much for recommending the series to your friends. That means a LOT to me. 😀

      You can actually get a copy of Midnight Hunt (Book 3) either here at my website or on Smashwords and read it on your iBook. Just download the ePub version and in iTunes, you can just drag and drop the file from a folder into your iBook.

      I would highly recommend using your iPad to visit my site or Smashwords to download the file. When you do, it asks if you’d like to open the book in iBooks. Very easy to do!

      Or you can visit this link http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=8920 for instructions on how to do it from your computer to your iTunes and transfer it to your iPad.

      Please let me know if you have any problems. I can even get on Skype with you and walk you through the whole thing if you have a problem. (I used to be a software instructor.)

      Cheers!
      Arial 😉

    Arial – I love the BBB series! I just finished book 4 and can’t wait for the next one. Rick has to be the *BEST* book-boyfriend ever. Makes one wish that fantasies could come true. I love how he has remained so human (well, OK, a few slips) and stayed so faithful to the soul of Davina. I have recommended this series to several of my friends and gotten great feedback. Also, love-love-LOVE the audiobook narrator – you are soooo right about him giving Rick a perfect voice. Thank you for your creativity and perseverence in creating Rick’s world and for letting us in on it.

      HOLY BANANAS, LISA!! I can’t tell you what a fabulous joy this brings me today, to read these comments and know people are enjoying Rick and his stories. And just so you know, Rick is very real…to a certain extent…and such a boyfriend can be true. That’s part of the reason I wrote these books – to show people what a love worth dying for looks like. Broderick’s appearance may be based on the typical romance novel hero, but his heart and soul belongs to my husband. And I don’t guess at the steamy love scenes…but I’ll stop there. Let’s just say my husband is head of the Bedroom Research and Development Department. 😉

      I’ve fashioned Broderick MacDougal after my own romance novel hero in my own soul mate. The story of Rick and Davina through the centuries is actually our story. We both have had some past-life regressions and believe our souls have loved each other over and over again through the eons. Though my husband isn’t a vampire (that’s actually me – lol), he is every bit the family-oriented, loving and devoted heart who loves me NO MATTER WHAT. I believe everyone has a true love and soul mate that is perfect for them and who accepts them for everything they are, faults and all. I have hope you will find yours!

      All my best wishes and hopes for a bright future!!!

      Love,
      Arial 😀
