Pain and love are fickle things.
Here in Ceteris, both are often intertwined and shackled — invisible chains that dictate how and when each will be experienced.
Those invisible manacles are heavy, and they ache… and I am so incredibly tired of bearing them.
With help from the group of men I have begun to fall for — giant, demon, fallen angel, assassin, teacher, and mediator — we intend to break free from those restraints.
The time has come that we realize our purpose as influencers of sin and reform the rules, taking back what should have never been stolen from us to begin with.
But something stirs inside me, eager to vacate and be given a voice.
Something obscure, promising both pain and love.
Something that, once liberated, will change our existence for eternity.
Are we a strong enough unit to overcome the anguishing love and harrowing pain its liberation may bring? Or will it keep us fettered just as surely as those manacles we are so eager to escape?

Near future, light Sci-Fi Reverse Harem Romance with a speculative spin on fated mates and a corrupt government hellbent on keeping them separated!
My name is Thessaly, and at 22, I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. Living with my parents, going to college, and hanging out with friends is pretty much the extent of my mediocre life. The biggest drama I have going on with me is fighting a growing attraction toward my best friend Bram. Oh and avoiding needles–specifically ones that draw my blood.
See, on January 27, 2044, the DNA Networking Act was set into action. This new law provides those in authority to gather genetic information from citizens in an effort to achieve nationwide resistance to diseases and other weaknesses. Sounds promising, right?
Maybe. But to me, it infringes on a person’s freedom. The act prohibits citizens from declining to undergo genetic testing when summoned, and the deadline for everyone to voluntarily submit a DNA sample is fast approaching. I’m avoiding the process as long as possible.
Until one night the unthinkable happens: I’m ruthlessly abducted. Bleeding is no longer voluntary… it’s a requirement. And as it turns out, the four guys who captured me aren’t anything like I expected.
No one in our family had come from an easy life. From foster care to forming the Ravens at our small Boston college, the concept of danger had never been one we turned away from. Instead, we took it upon ourselves to serve as the lawless justice system on campus to stop unnecessary deaths from the distribution of laced drug products.
Why? Because of her. Because her death could have been stopped. That was why we formed the Ravens.
So what has changed? My boys have always been protective but now I felt as though there was a secret standing between us. As we begin to receive tips about the Letters, questions start to plague my mind. What have the boys been hiding from me? Why is my sister, Lucida, never around anymore?

Dragons suck, like literally suck the life out of you if you let them. Trick is not to look them directly in the eyes, like ever. So, the day Wila finds herself staring into the most dangerous Draconi’s pretty, emerald peepers, she knows she’s royally fucked.
No one said saving a bunch of kids from being served up as treats to the dragon liege was going to be easy. Options are limited—immediate execution or servitude, and Wila prefers to have her head remain firmly on her shoulders.
Now, the self-professed dark avenger must work to bring down a resistance of demons hell-bent on making life difficult for the dragon liege. And, if that wasn’t bad enough, her new position comes with a partner, the dragon liege’s favoured demon enforcer; a creature of fire, fury and washboard abs who—let’s face it—is just gonna cramp her style.
With the help of a ghostly receptionist, a talking dog and the thing that lives in the basement, Wila will be forced to take on a most dangerous task. Add a dragon prince, a sexy troll blood and a billionaire mage into the mix, and things are about to get even more complicated.

A city filled with monsters needs a woman who can kick ass, and Wilomena Bastion is just the gal for the job.
A kick-ass Urban Fantasy with a slow burn Whychoose Romance.
I don’t fear the walking dead like most people, but that may be because I grew up playing Red Rover with them. Once they begin to decay, they’re not very fast, but they’re guaranteed to break through the clenched fists of the other team when they run through them. Sometimes they break those fists off completely.
When you’ve watched a dead man do the chicken dance upon your order, it’s hard to take them seriously. So death is the one thing I don’t fear. Not when the living are more terrifying.
I grew up with a certain set of rules that my dads and mom instilled inside of me. 1. Always be aware of my surroundings. 2. When shit hits the fan, stay calm and keep a cool head. And 3. Never reveal my secrets. Keep them guarded closely or risk the interest of those that would seek to use my power for their own gain.
Those rules used to be easy. They were what I lived and breathed. That was until I met Nate. Ever since I fell into his dark eyes, nothing has been the same. Four years have passed, and guarding my secrets has only become more difficult, especially when I have the world’s biggest crush on my boss and have grown as close as family to the crew I work with day in and out.
Yet even though guilt is a bitter pill I swallow each time I lie to my crew to cover up some oddity of mine that’s surfaced, it’s what must be done.
And I could have continued to do so. The dead don’t tell my secrets, so confiding in them is cathartic, until everything changes, and everything I thought I knew is tested.
You see, dealing with the living is tough, but the problem with the dead, is that sometimes, they don’t stay dead.
This is an 18+ slow burn Whychoose novel.

Whisper until we can scream in unison…
When the DNA Networking Act went into effect, the mandatory participation was cryptic and confusing. Since then, however, their purpose for gathering that information has become quite clear. What my companions and I witnessed within the confines of the facility during our attempted infiltration was more horrific than anyone expected.
To make matters worse, some of our group didn’t get out of there unharmed.
And a couple of them… didn’t get out at all.
Not only are the lives of those around me being screwed with, the impact is affecting millions of others. When all is said and done, if this continues to go unchecked, our nation’s entire population may cease to exist altogether.
All for what? The sake of science?
Whatever the underlying reason, this madness needs to stop. My friends and I have a few science-based strategies up our own sleeves, and no matter what challenges we may face, we’re determined to persevere.
If it isn’t already too late.
Please give a warm welcome to author
Tell us a bit about yourself
I’ve always been quite partial to the way Georges Guétary, in the film An American in Paris, describes Leslie Caron’s character as a wonderfully multi-faceted woman: enchanting, beautiful, spiritual, exciting, lusty, sweet, shy, old-fashioned, vivacious and modern, yacky, incessant, wild, fun, moody, and happy — I too am multi-faceted; I’m a little bit of everything rolled into one! Same goes for my lifestyle, hobbies, and talents: In addition to being a writer, I am also a professional photographer, graphic designer, and homeschooling mother of three boys.
That’s Adell in a nutshell. However, Adell Ryan is a hubby/wife pseudonym. I am Adell, and he is Ryan. Ryan acts as a sounding board, beta reader, and schedule manager among other imperative things. He also plays a vital role in making sure my male characters act manly enough 😉
Have you always wanted to become an author?
I have written creatively for as long as I can remember. When I was in first grade I won an award for a special character’s story I had shared. This character went on quite the adventure; he dragged himself through a desert, bounced through a giant forest, and rolled around in a plush field of grass. At the end, he found himself quite stuck at the bottom of a lake. Why? Well because he was a golfball, of course.
I continued to write on-and-off throughout my life but never took it seriously. Then, when I gave birth to my first son, I would write him little poems… I even wrote him a song. The song thing became a tradition, and my next two boys earned their very own as well. These personal songs taught them how to spell their names and always reminded them how much they are loved. I also wrote a short children’s story at one point, but never thought I was much good at it, so it got set aside.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
When it came down to writing for real, rather than me seeking out the writing life, the writing life found me. In August of 2017, I was very sick and bedridden for quite some time. Books became my escape and I had a budding love for Paranormal Romance. One of my many book searches during that timeframe led me to Trickery, the first book in the Curse of the Gods series by Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington. I read that book and just completely and utterly swooned over the guy characters, then was like “What is this sorcery, and WHERE DO I FIND MORE?!” I got all grabby handy and desperate. Gimmie, gimme, gimme. Soon, I found myself in a Facebook group called Reverse Harem Readers with thousands of other women (and men) who were also obsessed with the genre. A story idea I had thought about in brief six years prior flourished in my mind yet again… this time with a Reverse Harem twist. From there, the story and the characters practically wrote itself. As far as the specific topic inspiration, after I got married and started growing my family, the naive little bubble I seemed to have grown up in, burst, and I quickly learned just how much it seems authority figures like to misuse their positions of seniority. While I like to live a very positive lifestyle, I also easily worry about the degradation of society as a whole on account of the many liberties these sort of people like to take. With that mindset and concern, it wasn’t at all difficult for me to weave a story in my mind about the government going as far as using our blood — the very blueprint of who we are — and capitalizing on that as well.
What are you working on now?
Seems I’ve finally “leveled up” in the trade and I now have the ability and drive to work on more than one idea at a time! It’s so much fun and really keeps the creative juices flowing, which, in turn, makes the stories I write that much better. Right now I am most deeply involved in Her Reverse Genus Book Three, but during the down times (when Ryan has the manuscript and is going through certain scenes and I am awaiting feedback, for example) I’ve been hopping between a Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance, a Slow Burn Reverse Harem Contemporary Romance, and… shhh… a possible Reverse Harem Science Fiction Fantasy co-write.
Do you have any quirks while writing?
Hmmm, writing quirks. No, I don’t think so? I do enjoying listening to music and playing 4thewords though! Those things get the job done best 😀
What are your hopes for the future?
In addition to leveling up in the trade like I’d mentioned above, our goals have also changed drastically. We were unfortunate victims of Hurricane Michael. Now somewhat displaced, we are sleeping in an RV with no near vision of a real house being available for quite some time. As a result, we’ve realized we can greatly benefit by turning my writing hobby into an occupation — and the hopeful income from doing so. Our new goals for the imminent future are to increase my working hours and work toward publishing more books while also learning the ins and out of marketing and advertising so we can increase my campaigning efforts. As far as the living situation goes, we’re still looking for the silver lining. In fact, how cool would it be to become a traveling homeschooling family and a traveling writer! The thought has definitely crossed our mind lately!
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Go for it! But always try to embrace the hard stuff too; the challenges you’ll face — because you will face them. Find the lesson in every step along the way, and always try to “level up” even if you might think you don’t need to.
Do you have anything to say to your fans?
I was recently asked a question for a podcast interview that really brought things to light for me. The question was simple: How do you stay motivated? The answers go hand-in-hand. In the beginning, the words and the rush you get when those creative juices are flowing is what got me through. But as time passed, the dynamic changed and my ultimate motivator became the people around me who love, support, and appreciate what I do. My husband, my children, my family, my writer friends… and, since it all revolves around books, most importantly, my readers. I can write all day long and feel only somewhat satisfied… but touching the world with my words and impacting people’s lives enriches and empowers me. My readers are my rock and my muse rolled into one. So… thank you for taking this adventure with me… and pack extra supplies because we’re in for a long-term wild ride together.
