Twenty-three year old Dimitri has to do what he is told—literally. Controlled by a paranormal bond, he is forced to use his wits to fulfill unlimited deadly wishes made by multimillionaire Karl Walker.
Dimitri has no idea how his family line became trapped in the genie bond. He just knows resisting has never ended well. When he meets Syd—assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd—he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can’t tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn’t the type to tolerate secrets.
Then Karl starts sending him away on back-to-back wishes. Unable to balance love and lies, Dimitri sets out to uncover Karl’s ultimate plan and put it to an end. But doing so forces him to confront the one wish he never saw coming—the wish that will destroy him.

I work in healthcare Information Technology / Project Management by day because, come to find out, being a starving artist is not as much fun as it sounds.
Tell us about your current release/or new release?
SUMMONED is about a twenty-three year old gamer, Dimitri, who inherited a paranormal bond that forces him to submit to his master’s wishes. He doesn’t have any magical abilities, so he has to use his wits to fulfill the requests. When he falls for the one-night stand who keeps coming back, he decides to fight against the genie-bond in order to be with her. But doing so brings him face-to-face with the truth about his situation—and the wish that will destroy him.
What made you decide to write about this particular subject?
The story idea came about in pieces. Several years prior, I had become intrigued by the mythology behind the jinn and read up on it, with no intentions of actually doing anything with that information. Some time later, a completely mundane thought about not wanting to get out of bed developed into a story line about someone who was forced to do things. Like a genie. Then one day, I decided to take a break from another series I had been working on and try my hand at a plot set in the modern world. I sat down to put some words on the first page and ended up with Dimitri, an unwilling criminal, kidnapping a little girl. Sixteen days—and a case of Mountain Dew—later, the draft was complete. Within a couple of months, it had an agent.
Are you currently working on a new project? If so can you tell us what it will be about?
While SUMMONED stands alone, I am working on several other full-length novels that take place in the same world. STIFLED is going through beta-reading at the moment. SHATTERED is about halfway complete, and SABOTAGED is outlined.
I would like to thank Rainy Kaye for stopping by my blog today.
