Cate’s enemies aren’t just surrounding her―they’re inside her head.
Therapist Cate Duncan has just accepted a job with the MacGregor Group, a unique collective of alternative healers. She’s excited by the prospect of honing her empathic healing techniques among others like herself―aura readers, telepaths, crystal healers, and more. The fact that Cate just started dating Ben, her magnetic new boss, is an added bonus.
Before Cate can settle into her new routine, the poisoning of a prominent neuroscientist draws the entire MacGregor Group into both a federal investigation and an even more insidious threat. Protected by Ben’s former Marine Corps unit, Cate and her colleagues must use their alternative healing methods to solve the crime as their patient clings to life. The responsibility of discovering crucial information falls to Cate and her parapsychological powers.
But for Cate, unraveling the mystery means reopening wounds that had just begun to heal―and in the environment of the Marine Corps unit, differences between Cate and Ben become clearer, straining their budding romance. When a new crisis looms, Cate must trust in her colleagues’ gifts and the strength of Ben’s love, finding the courage to confront her deepest and most terrifying demons―or her own life will be at risk.

1. If you were to describe your e-book/book in only one word, what would it be?
2. What would you say inspired you to write it? ?
ALL THE WOUNDS IN SHADOW was originally inspired by thinking about how true love can overcome every obstacle, in some cases even transcending death.
3. Is this title part of a series? Without giving us spoilers, of course, what can we expect from the next e-books/books in the series? ?
Yes, ALL THE WOUNDS IN SHADOW is the second book in The Healing Edge paranormal romantic suspense series. The first book, ALL THE BROKEN PLACES, introduces Cate Duncan, a therapist who is struggling to cope after her mother’s death. Cate’s world is forever transformed when she learns that she is an empath and is asked to join the MacGregor Group, a clinic staffed by a unique group of paranormally gifted individuals. She also has to deal with unexpected feelings she develops for the clinic’s manager, Ben, a psychologist and Marine Corps veteran.
Right now, I’m in the midst of final edits on the third book in the series, ALL THE LIGHT THERE IS, which is coming out in Spring/Summer 2017. This is the exciting conclusion to the trilogy, bringing all of the members of the MacGregor Group together to face the rise of an ominous new threat. Meanwhile, Cate and Ben continue on the journey of their tender yet tumultuous romance. I can’t wait to share it with readers!
