Echoes of Blood

"Tell me there's no such thing as vampires."

"A lush, haunting vampire tale.."
Aleksandr Voinov, author of 'Witches of London'

"Five men, five pasts. When they entwine together, only then can love flourish."
Susan Mac Nicol, author of 'Double Alchemy'

"...weaves the everyday and the supernatural into a cohesive whole, concealing chilling - and surprising - secrets within its far-from-everyday storyline."
Charlie Cochrane, author of 'Best Corpse For the Job'

Daniel Poole is a man on the run – from his ex-lover, from his civil partnership, from life itself. But when he runs into the arms of a group of dangerous vampires, he risks losing that life - and everything else.

This poignant paranormal romance combines a modern-day setting in Liverpool with the disappearance of the mysterious Ninth Legion of Rome, and a love story with a dark and bloody twist.

  • A Roman joke?

    Roman Britain would have been over-run with mice and they would probably have been seen as utter pests, getting into the granaries and chewing through the grain. So why make a model of one?

  • Ghost story with a difference

    I see the movie is based on a book, ‘Break My Heart 1000 Times’, by Daniel Waters. I’d not come across this before but based on this I’d be tempted to give it a go...

When she isn’t being a pane in the glass, Fiona writes darkly humorous paranormal romance, often featuring gay characters and almost always with a twist in the tail. Her short stories have been published in anthologies and magazines including Mslexia, Paragraph Planet, and The Library of Rejected Beauty. She currently has three books available: gay vampire romance Echoes of Blood and time-travel romance Just Visiting on Kindle, and paranormal romp Got Ghosts? from Fox Spirit Books.

Fiona lives in a slate cottage within stone-throwing distance (never a good idea in Glass houses…) of England’s largest lake with her husband, several pot plants and a vast collection of books. She enjoys history, gardening and photography, and rarely has her nose far from the pages of a book – or a cup of tea.
