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 used to freelance a few graphics projects for fellow authors – swag, book covers, website headers, etc.

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 Elder Scrolls Online and Star Wars: The Old Republic and you might catch me streaming my games on my Twitch Channel. Be sure to follow me there so you can be notified when I get online.

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 used in a podcast I did a few years ago called PNR Radio – The Paranormal Report, where we featured fantasy and paranormal authors.
  • 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 somewhere overseas.

  1. 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.

    1. 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. πŸ˜€

      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 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.)

  2. Hey there! I finally found my way over here and look forward to keeping up with you and all the exciting up-coming events. I also can’t wait to catch up with the Bonded by Blood books! Which I’m headed over there to check out next! Cool site by the way!
    Sincerely, Jan D.

  3. 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.

    1. 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. πŸ˜‰

      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!!!

  4. Bonded by Blood… more like Bonded by Broderick GIMME DEM FANGS! I am so excited to read this series. Here’s to sexy vamps

  5. I didn’t see when Chandlers Court is coming out. Im looking forward to it. Also I keep checking and checking for book 6, please, please, please get it out! But dont cut corners. I love your books including the petite mort books. Your driving me crazy. I have left great reviews for all your chronicle books because they deserve it. Great work. I wrote the reviews quite a while ago though. Hope your selling lots of books and hope my reviews helped. I even looked up all the stuff about Jack the Ripper. Can’t get enough of these books. Let those creative juices flow, if you do and don’t drop off on the endings you’ll have your own Chronicles TV series like Outlander. Woo hoo.

    1. Sorry for the delay in replying. WOW! I can’t believe I missed your comments here. Chandler’s Court got put on hold for the time being. A lot of other things took priority. Writing Book 6, for one. And then I had to take a break from writing for a couple of years to take care of some ailing family members. Fast forward to the pandemic and all kinds of other things intruded on my writing. I’m finally getting back into the swing of things, though, so you’ll be seeing some new stuff from me soon. Thank you for your patience, Deborah! And thank you so much for all the wonderful reviews!

  6. Hello Arial,
    I was wondering if you had any copies of Psychic Whispers to sign and send out.
    If not, that’s ok. I was just curious.

    1. Hi, Laurel!

      Your timing is amazing! I just came to my site today for some maintenance and saw your comment. AJ and I JUST ordered paperback copies today. It will take us a few weeks for each of us to sign them and send them to each other so we both have dual-signed copies we can send out. We are hoping to get them posted on our websites soon!

      We’ll have our assistant Ripley drop you a line when we they’re available.

      Thank you!!

  7. Arial,
    I just discovered the first two books in the Woodward Hill Mystery Romance series….what terrific stories! PLEASE say more books in that series are coming.

    1. Hi, BJ! I’m thrilled you enjoyed the books. Yes! There will be more coming, but the timeline is uncertain at this point. We’re hoping to have another book coming out next year. Life has kind of intruded on our writing schedule, so that’s why we don’t know. Be sure to join my mailing list to get updates!

  8. Hi I am in love with Historical Romances, specifically Highlanders and also Supernatural Romances, specifically Vampires and I came across your series the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles. I plan to read them all on Kindle but I was also looking into buying all the paperbacks because I absolutely love the covers. But the cover of the first book isn’t the same as the others available for purchase or how it was showed on my digital copy. And I was wondering if there’s anyway to purchase the alternate cover with the tartan and moon.

    1. Hi, Kat! Thanks for stopping by and I’m thrilled you’re diving into the series. I checked on Amazon and I already uploaded the new cover, but for some reason, it’s not reflecting the proper cover in the store. I’ve resubmitted the paperback to be published with the new cover, so hopefully that will force the update on Amazon’s site. I’ll check back in a couple of days to see if it took. Thank you for bringing this to my attention!
