Also, it's mentioned on a review the name "Camryn" is misspelled. I'd like to clarify, it is not.
Here is the definition.

Camryn meaning and name origin:   http://www.thinkbabynames.com/meaning/0/Camryn

Camryn \c(a)-mr-
yn, cam-ryn\ as a girl's name is a variant of Cameron (Scottish, Gaelic), and the meaning of Camryn is "crooked nose".

I hope you enjoy them and help me expand the story. Disney needs a new Princess : )
Have a fabulous weekend!

New Short Stories Cover Reveal


Princess Camryn is a kind, humble girl who is taught to believe she is a horrendous creature. Mirrors were prohibited at the castle.  Although her family was revolted by the princess, the whole court loved her. Being unattractive was not acceptable for this arrogant Royal family known for their exquisite beauty.  The only way to prevent Princess Camryn from becoming a Queen is to make her disappear forever.  With the help of her sister, the Queen finds a warlock to cast a spell on the Princess.  The princess is cursed to a sparkling rivulet form by the despicable warlock. The only way to break the spell was for a kind, handsome prince to fall in love with her in her new form before she turned eighteen and for him to seal and dry the creek’s source. (ages 3+)







 Aonghus the once friendly black howler monkey belonging to Sandra turns into a killer after her alcoholic brother Victor viciously tormented and abused it. 
In search of a better life for her two young children she travels to the city and brings her mother to take care of her children and her hopeless brother. With Sandra away ruthless Victor intensifies his abuse and cruelly sets the monkey’s tail on fire. 
The infuriated wild animal tries to extinguish the fire by wrapping his tail around Victor’s neck suffocating him and leaving the children and grandmother trapped in a hut with an enraged animal in the middle of the jungle. (YA)

Black Oil, Red Blood


Attorney Chloe Taylor suspects she's been litigating on an uneven playing field against Big Oil giant PetroPlex, but when her star expert witness turns up dead, she knows. PetroPlex is harboring a shocking secret--one which has the potential to skyrocket gasoline prices, spark an energy market meltdown, and cause destruction on a global scale. Chloe races to stop the villains before  time runs out. (Smashwords Blurb).

I was one of the lucky one's to received a copy of this book from the author, Ms. Diane Castle. It was my first time reading it but I feel it won't be the last. It is one of those books that reads just as good, if not better, upon rereading.

This book has it all, murder, mystery, greed, suspense and a of course romance. Ms. Diane Castle’s well paced plot and engaging characters make this an entertaining novel based on legal corruption in the oil industry. I’m not a fan of legal thrillers but Diane Castle was able to hook me with her fantastic dialogue. The story is based in small town Kettle, Texas, where a big oil corporation reigns and a witty attorney Chloe Taylor fights against this giant in winning cases on wrongful death settlements. The book moves quickly and the suspense it’s addictive. Great novel!! Don't forget to check the book trailer. 
Thank you for stopping by O; )
