Oakland, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/28/2014 -- Since she began college in 2001, Pamela A. Goodwin has wanted to be an author.
In 2013, she achieved her dream – and did so with style. Publishing 5 books in just over 5 months, Goodwin has proved herself to be a powerful new voice in the self-publishing industry.
“I’ve been very lucky to have attracted an audience with my first books,” says the author. “I’ve always wanted to create different worlds for people to dream about, or remind them about experiences they may have forgotten. There are universal themes that everyone can relate to – like fear, love, or even just the need for escapism. I like to write across many genres so I can explore all of those themes and reach a greater number of readers.”
And reach them, she has. With ‘The Empress’, Goodwin has penned a tale of terror and fantasy, with a seductive, evil Empress and a foolish man who believes he can overthrow an emperor. In ‘Flesh of Stone’, Goodwin explores the dark weight of secrets, the trouble with a double life, and the importance of protecting your family. Goodwin has even tackled the horror genre, with ‘Pretend You’re Alone’, a ghostly story of a young woman who is sent to a mental hospital for the ‘special attentions’ of an insane, murderous doctor.
Vibrant, varied and with a rich eye for detail, Goodwin is one author to watch in 2014.
If Sines thinks that killing the beast emperor will make him look more like a man and bring him respect, he's in the wrong empire. Emperor Ganois curses Sines with a woman who receives powers from the Devil himself. Yes, she will put Sines in his proper place while she turns into the Hell Cat she was chosen to become. Killing people. Not a problem. Torturing Sines and the people around him. Such fun for the Empress.
