Interview with Judge Mom…Redux…
Kerri is crouched down in a dark pit, the walls made from compacted mud.
Kerri: Hello? (she whispers shakily)
A flicker of light nearby draws her attention followed by the sound of clicking footsteps.
A sexy male voice with the hint of a British accent sounds: Who do we have here?
Kerri: Uh…I’m looking for Paisley?
The owner of the sexy male voice comes into view. He’s holding a small lantern which casts a wicked glow about his breathtakingly handsome face.
Sexy Male: She’s not here at the moment. Well, really she is here but she won’t be available to see guests for quite a while.
Kerri: (feels the sudden urge for a potty break) If I could just get back to my car, I’ll get out of your way then.
Sexy Male: Ah now, no need to be afraid. I’m Camden.
Kerri: (Eyes him warily) Nice to meet you, Camden. Are you a friend of Paisley’s?
Camden: Well, sort of. She certainly doesn’t appreciate my helpfulness though.
Kerri: (Not immediately convinced by his poor me routine) Well, I would be appreciative if you could get me back to my car.
Camden: (Reaches out and caresses Kerri’s cheek) Ssshh…let’s not worry about that right now.
Kerri: (Heart thundering inside her ears)
Zelef: Geez, leave the author alone, would ya?
Camden retracts his hand and turns toward Zelef.
Camden: Would you kindly mind your own business?
Zelef: You mind your own business. Paisley is looking for you.
Camden and Kerri: Me?
Zelef looks back and forth between the two of them who have responded in unison.
Zelef: Sorry girlie, she’s looking for Camden. You have to be going now. This interview isn’t going to happen.
Kerri: Sure. No problem. I just need to get back to my car.
Camden: I can take her to her car.
Zelef: No way. Get your demon mind out of the gutter and go find Paisley. She’s not happy.
Camden: What’s new?
Zelef: Excuse me?
Camden turns and gives Kerri a wry smile and a wink and then he’s gone.
Kerri: I think I’ve got enough information for my story.
Zelef: (shakes head and then leans in closer to Kerri) You can never write about what you’ve seen here. Never.
Kerri: (nods) No worries. No worries at all.
And really, this is all I can tell you about the time I attempted to interview the new Judge Mom and the time I spent in the Underworld. But what I can tell you is that if you enjoy many zany characters, one large dose of mayhem and chaos, and true collection of humorous situations…please check out Courting Demons.

Book Title: Courting Demons
Paisley Barton was already having a bad day before she turned her husband into a rat.
First, she was fired by her boss and then came home to find hubby in the shower with a naked blonde chick. They say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned but this break-up may just unleash hell on Earth when Paisley casts a spell of vengeance against her philandering husband.
After her spell casting inadvertently opens a portal between dimensions, Paisley finds her family home transformed into a nightly courtroom for settling disputes between demons of the underworld and she’s the judge! If that’s not enough, she’s got to deal with a charming, ancient demon named Camden who wants to be her personal bodyguard while trying to explain her husband’s sudden, mysterious disappearance to sexy police Detective Dalton Briggs.
But Paisley will show them all that an everyday working mom is better equipped than most to deal with the mystical mayhem…and with a tempting demon hottie and a flirtatious young detective vying for her affection, she soon learns that being single again isn’t so bad after all.
