Book Blurb:

It was the Great Lie, and it could destroy the Vampire Nation.

In First, We Kill All the Lawyers, vampire lawyer Donovan Trait survived repeated attacks by a serial killer. Now, after violating a marital agreement with the Vampire Coalition, and several ancient Vampire Laws, Donovan, and his newly-turned vampire bride are on the run. You see, in exchange for permitting a pure-blood vampire to marry a turned human, the Traits agreed to allow vampire scientists to monitor the conception and birth of their children. When Judge Shirley Magnusen Trait turns up accidentally pregnant on her wedding day, the fury of the Coalition is unleashed. The tribunal recommends unacceptable punitive action and the Traits are forced to flee to a mysterious island of vampire nuns. The Traits are, by profession, seekers of the truth. But this time, the truth may not set them free. In fact, it could start a revolution. Will the Traits escape the clutches of the Coalition and keep their babies safe? Or will their family be…eliminated?

A Quick Interview with Seelie Kay

Why do you write romance?

Because I am fascinated by the games people play to find and secure a lasting relationship, which is not always love. There’s the chase, the courtship, the falling, the surrender. That’s what I try to capture in my stories.

Do you prefer a certain type of romantic hero?

I adore smart, dashing gentlemen who aren’t afraid to live on the edge. They can be a bad boy, a billionaire, a prince, or a secret agent. That hint of danger just hooks me! However, I they have to be paired with strong, independent women who aren’t afraid to fight for what they want, even love.

Why did you write “Ye Gods! The Law is an Ass?”

Donovan Trait is a vampire lawyer. In the human world, a very respected lawyer. I wanted to give him the opportunity to shine in the vampire world. So I created a scenario where his turned vampire bride Shirley is unfairly punished for an unintentionally violating their marital agreement, as well as other outdated, outrageous, and outright discriminatory laws—she unintentionally  To survive and protect their unborn child, they must not only fight back, but also rebel. In this instance, human history provides them with the path. That gave me the opportunity to draw parallels between the fight for human rights and the rights of vampires who aren’t purebloods. It also allowed me to poke at the continued need of both societies to embrace social change. Perhaps surprisingly, the vampires lag far behind the humans in terms of equality and individual freedoms. However, in the end, the message is clear: Whether human or vampire, an individual is entitled to certain rights and liberties. And no human or vampire has a right to deny them.

Author Bio

Photo: Suzanne Rogerson, author


Suzanne lives in Middlesex, England with her hugely encouraging husband and two children.

She wrote her first novel at the age of twelve. She discovered the fantasy genre in her late teens and has never looked back. Giving up work to raise a family gave her the impetus to take her attempts at novel writing beyond the first draft, and she is lucky enough to have a husband who supports her dream – even if he does occasionally hint that she might think about getting a proper job one day.

Suzanne loves gardening and has a Hebe (shrub) fetish. She enjoys cooking with ingredients from the garden, and regularly feeds unsuspecting guests vegetable-based cakes.

She collects books, loves going for walks and picnics with the children and sharing with them her love of nature and photography.

Suzanne is interested in history and enjoys wandering around castles. But most of all she likes to escape with a great film, or soak in a hot bubble bath with an ice cream and a book.

Chapter One Excerpt

The wind whipped at Tei’s cloak. She gathered it around her body and held it close, but the feel of her father’s magic was gone. All the magic had gone.

She opened her spirit to the island and felt the stark emptiness surrounding her. She turned and scanned the horizon in every direction. Nothing but dust and broken mountains stretched into the distance. Her soul ached to connect with another living being, but there was no one. Kalaya was a dead husk – a barren, dust-covered shell.

She screamed, her voice echoing in the nothingness. She looked down at herself; her boots were worn to scraps, her hands were thin and frail, the cloak threadbare and faded. Her body was wasting away but, despite her emaciated state, she knew death would be a long time coming.

Something on the ground caught her attention. Her dragging footprints covered the earth in every direction, criss-crossing the terrain in her never ceasing search for life…

Tei sat up in bed and glanced at the familiar interior of her dorm room. Her only dress lay discarded on the floor and her father’s cloak hung from a hook on the wall, still as pristine as the day he’d given it to her. Her hair was damp with sweat against her neck and her head pounded from drinking too much cider. The evening’s celebrations had been a release, but now the dream images marred the happiness of the Sentinel’s initiation ceremony.

Tei wondered why she’d had the nightmare at all when the new Sentinel had already connected with the island. They’d all witnessed her restore the magic; but more than that, she’d restored hope.

Deciding the dream was just a residue of the past, she untangled herself from the covers and got up from the bed. But she couldn’t shake the feeling of foreboding as she washed her face and dressed in her usual travel attire. She hung up the dress she’d worn the previous evening, pulled her father’s cloak around her shoulders, and, invoking the concealing spell, she slipped from the room.

Drum rolls, please: Ailsa Abraham’s new book ‘Attention to Death’ will be published in March 2017!

The Bingergread Cottage

Ladies and Gentlemen. This is a momentous day for me. I was a very productive writer until I threw myself off a motorbike in a triple somersault.

That was two years ago and finally…FINALLY, I have another book ready for release in March 2017 from Crooked Cat Books. 

This is a completely different genre from the Alchemy series, which isn’t finished, and I hope a different readership will appreciate it. No witches, no demons but a very grisly murder.  Watch out for it and I’m off to finish Book 3 of the other series because I know some of you are dying to see that too!
