Good morning everyone,

Please give a warm welcome to author Cera duBois!  She's here today to show off her new book, A Hunter's Angel.  She's a fellow Wild Rose Press author, so I hope you'll make her feel at home.

A Hunter's Angel

The serial killer stalking Clayton, Pennsylvania, isn’t all that has Chief of Police Grace Wallace worried. For a year, she’s tried to forget Special Agent Ian McHenry and now he’s the expert the FBI sent to catch the killer. She can’t stay away from him, but something primal is telling her to run to save much more than just her heart.

Despite the strict code of ethics Ian vowed to follow as a vampire hunter, he craves Grace’s blood above all others. If he chooses to stay, Ian risks losing his chance at divine forgiveness.

But if he leaves Grace unprotected from the evil he’s hunted for over a century, he loses more than just his soul…

Cera is going to share a bit of insight to her inspiration -- I find it pretty fascinating!  

From A Single Line

“You’d be surprised, Bella, at how often my kind are the source behind the horrors in your human news.” Edward from Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer, page 25.

This line changed my life.

Well, my life as a wannabe writer at any rate.

I never had much interest in vampires. Sure, I enjoyed the corny remake of Dark Shadows in the early 90s (I’m too young to remember the real series) and I liked the movie version of Ann Rice’s Interview With the Vampire, but until I read the Twilight series during the summer of 2008, I’d never read a vampire novel.

When I read that scene where Bella was reading about the increase of murders in Seattle in the newspaper, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. The concept of a vampire masquerading around a small town under the guise of a serial killer wouldn’t let me alone. Then I came up with Ian and I was hooked. His being a vampire who hunted vampires and whose cover in the human world was that of an FBI agent fascinated me. Of course, I had to have a great kick-ass heroine for this Irish vampire and who better than the new chief of police of the town where the murders were happening.

I started writing A Hunter’s Angel in September 2008 and was amazed when it became all I could think about. I’d go to work and couldn’t wait to get home to start writing. Nothing had ever enflamed me like this. I was obsessed in a way that I’ve never been before. By the end of January 2009, I typed “the end.”

I’ve always wanted to be a writer and in 2005, I began writing Star Wars fanfiction with the grand plan to use it as “practice.” It worked, but for whatever reason, I could never find an idea compelling enough to pull me away from my fun hobby. I’d start original stories, but I’d never finish them, until that line in Eclipse set my muse on fire.

Since then, I’ve given up my fanfiction hobby. Not long into the writing of A Hunter’s Angel, I came up with the second book. A Hunter’s Blade will be releasing later this year or early next. I’ve also written two contemporary Westerns (both will be released early next year by Lyrical Press). A third contemporary Western is in the revision process, and I’m currently working on A Hunter’s Wings (book 3 of The Hunter’s Daggers Series).

I look back and wonder how long I would have floundered, writing for fun but without a real purpose, if I hadn’t read that single line in Eclipse.


To find out more about A Hunter’s Angel check out my website ( for a schedule of my blog stops during the book tour. I will be presenting a series of short stories called The Vampire Encounters. Follow me as I interview Ian McHenry, Master Vampire Lucas Pomeroy, Vivian van Dyke Pomeroy, and have a scary run-in with Shane Chamberlain. Hope to see you along the way.

About the Author:

Cera duBois has a strong belief in never giving up on your dreams… Although Cera was unable to read due to dyslexia and a learning disability until she was in the fourth grade, she always had a story to tell. She wrote her first novel in eleventh grade when she had to keep a journal for her academic English class.

Since her life was far from exciting growing up as a farm girl in West Central Pennsylvania, she decided to rely on her imagination to give her something to write about. Over the course of the school year, she wrote a tangled romance set in the Deep South during the Civil War.

Becoming an author was her ultimate dream. Despite holding a BS in secondary social studies education from Penn State University, she currently works full-time as a medical secretary.

A mother of a teenage son and pre-teen daughter, she lives near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, with her husband of nearly 20 years. If she isn’t sitting in a quiet corner with her laptop, warm days will find her in the English garden surrounding her house. Cera loves to read and is interested in history, romance, science fiction and the paranormal.

She also writes contemporary Westerns under her real name of Sara Walter Ellwood.

"Victorians used the term 'limbs' as a euphenism for legs, which were thought to be so sexually exciting to a man, even a glimpse of a table leg could incite him to sexual frenzy. Table skirts were invented to prevent any unnatural unions between men and furniture."
