Guest Blog and Giveaway H.D. Thomson

In junior high I remember sneaking one of my sister's gothic romances into my room and reading it from cover to cover. From then on, I was hooked. I love to read anything, from Scientific American magazine to the nutritional labels of food boxes. There will be many a time you can find me with a book in one hand and a diet soda in another. To me, other than a cold diet soda, the next best thing to reading is writing. I love creating stories and molding characters into living, breathing beings inside my head. Human nature and what drives people whether it be physical or cerebral has always fascinated me and I hope that comes through in my books.

I’ve written a series that I really loved writing. To me nothing is better than a tortured hero. I not only love reading about them but I love writing about them. But in order for a hero to be tortured, you have to give them trials and tribulations. I’ve done that and more with Jake from Shrouded in Darkness. The poor guy. I’m amazed he’s still standing with what I threw at him. He’s on one roller coaster of a ride and I don’t let him take a breath of air during the entire book. I hope readers like him as much as I liked writing about him.

Shrouded in Darkness is the first in the award winning Shrouded series. To read more about the series or the first chapter of Shrouded in Darkness, feel free to visit

Shrouded in Darkness


Jake Preston is on borrowed time. If he doesn’t stumble upon a miracle and soon, he’ll endup dead. And even if he does, he still might end up dead with a clever killer hounding his heels. He believes that the one miracle and antidote to save him is in Margot Davenport’s house, across the country and miles away from Boston. Somewhere locked in her home is the key to reversing an experiment that is killing him with each breath he takes.

Margot doesn’t particularly care if she ends up dead. She’s lost everything she’s ever cared for. A divorce and the loss of her job as a corporate lawyer has left her with little faith in herself or in anyone else. Most importantly, she’s lost the one person on this earth she’s looked up to and cherished–her brother, Johnny. His death in a car accident has devastated her, and she can’t find the willpower to pull herself from the chasm she’s fallen into. Her only solace is at the bottom of a wineglass. Having moved back to the small town in northern Arizona where she was raised, she’s made a point of isolating herself both mentally and physically from everyone other than a few chosen friends. Little does she know that her life is going to explode into chaos.
