Book Description: 

One Man, Two Women, Two Gods...who will survive the Trickster's snare? 

Ghostly images materialize in Nina Weaver's photos. Goons try to kidnap her. When her photographs are stolen and her best friend is shot, she realizes that she has no one to turn to but her ex-lover, Pascal ""Goofy"" Guzman. Together they go on a desperate road trip in search of answers. The truth is darker and more terrifying than Nina could ever have imagined. After their love re-ignites, they fall into the Trickster God's trap. 



Chasing The Trickster is a refreshing read with a little mythology and folklore in it. I have to say that it was very comforting reading this book because it did not follow the regular story telling pattern that a folklore or mythology story tells. The Trickster God is up to no good he has his eye on a new victim to play a nasty trick on and when he does he is surprised by how the person acts. 

Nina is a photographer and when she looks at her recent photos she thinks she sees ghosts. After her best friend is shot she turns to the only person she trusts and that is her ex-boyfriend Pascal. Pascal is determined to get to the bottom of who is trying to hurt Nina but what he doesn't realize is that the danger and the truth are darker then he or Nina could have imagined. As their love re-ignites and they come together as one Nina and Pascal will have to fight like hell to remain together. The trickster has so many tricks up his sleeve and he wants to have some fun.

This is such an amazing story that it is a MUST READ! Go on out and get it and read it and see what tricks the trickster has in store for this couple!


She stared at the photo on the gallery wall and silently swore. All semester ghostly images had marred her work. And now not only a strange inclusion ruined her photo, but the pin light needed to be repositioned as well. She found a ladder in the hallway supply closet. Balancing precariously on the top step, she noticed that the imperfection had changed into the image of a vehicle, and it was on fire. She could see the superheated air wavering up off of the flames. The crackling and sudden heat of a blaze forced her to lift a hand to guard her face. It was going to explode. She was quite sure of it. And then she was falling backwards, falling down…

Writing for e-zines 13 SPOTS LEFT
April Grey. The best piece of advice I ever had as a budding novelist was to also write short pieces.
