In the ultimate showdown for survival, may the best demon slayer win.

Last month, I was a single preschool teacher whose greatest thrill consisted of color-coding my lesson plans. That was before I learned I was a slayer. Now, it’s up to me to face curse-hurling imps, vengeful demons, and any other supernatural uglies that crop up. And, to top it off, a hunk of a shape-shifting griffin has invited me to Greece to meet his family.

But it’s not all sun, sand, and ouzo. Someone has created a dark-magic version of me with my powers and my knowledge—and it wants to kill me and everyone I know. Of course, this evil twin doesn’t have Grandma’s gang of biker witches, a talking Jack Russell terrier, or an eccentric necromancer on its side. In the ultimate showdown for survival, may the best demon slayer win.


Thanks so much for having me back on Novel Thoughts and Book Talk. I’m really excited to be here and to give away a copy of my new release, A Tale of Two Demon Slayers.

My favorite part about writing paranormals is that everything is possible. Not only can I write about a world where a demon slayer gets to ride around with a gang of geriatric biker witches, but I can also populate that world with any number of supernatural creatures.

One of my favorites is Lizzie, the heroine’s pet Jack Russell Terrier. He’s not especially magical on his own, but because of her abilities, Lizzie’s dog can talk to her. And this little guy has plenty to say. Pirate even gets his own pet in A Tale of Two Demon Slayers, a baby dragon that he names Flappy. It amused me for a pet to have a pet. It goes something like this:

Lizzie: You can’t have a pet. You are a pet.

Pirate: Exactly. So I know how to treat a pet. First rule – no Healthy Lite dog chow.

So in honor of Pirate’s new pet, we have the quiz: What Supernatural Pet is Right for You? Post your answer below and you’re entered to win a copy of A Tale of Two Demon Slayers. Good luck!


Thank you, Ms Fox!

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen–go forth and take the quiz, then come back here to enter the drawing. And remember to visit Ms Fox’s website to learn more about Lizzie, Pirate, and their world.
