The day you die is meant to be the end, but for 18 year old Jordon Hastings, his death was only the beginning.

In a dark and twisted world, lost spirits known as Reapers remain behind after death to help collect the spirits from the realm of the living. A new Reaper, Jordon struggles to accept his fate and lingers in the shadows of his mortal life. But when a demon wolf starts to live through his shadow, hunting his family and friends Jordon has no choice but to leave. As soon as he accepts his new role the truth behind the relationship between Reapers and Angelic Hunters is revealed. His loyalty is tested, making him choose between a corrupted God and a single Banished Spirit.

Things I Love to Hear My Readers Say

I love more than anything when a reader comes up to me and tells me I was an inspiration. Not because I feel like some god among mortals, but because of the sentence that usually follows. 

These readers that say that to me are aspiring writers, and when they come up to me and say you’re an inspiration it’s because now they are going to do their best to become a published author too.

That, to me, is the most incredible feeling in the world. I know how hard it is to put something so personal on a piece of paper and show it to others. I know the feeling of being insecure and the fear of rejection becoming a label you can’t scrub away. 

I once read a quote saying; “Fear kills more dreams than failure ever could.” 

I haven’t tried to hide the fact I am a horrible speller, since childhood I’ve struggled and it made me feel stupid. Now I can sit at a signing booth and sign my name to books I’ve written, spelling errors and stupid grammar mistakes included, because I tried to achieve something I’ve always wanted.  Step by step, I’m hitting every milestone I want to hit and it is hard work but totally worth it.

When I hear others are also taking the plunge and they say I helped them reach it, it’s sits with me forever. 


Self confessed chocaholic, Jacinta was born and raised in Melbourne Australia with her loving family of five. Even as a child Jacinta had an itch to write. Writing was the one constant hobby she clung to, also trying her hand at piano, flute, tennis, horseback riding and drama.

Jacinta works full time in the family business and spends her afternoons either playing basketball, reading, writing or hanging out with friends. She is always happy to try something new; getting her real estate license, practicing ninjitshu, Zumba and parkour to name a few.

For her future, Jacinta sees herself writing. It is a large part of her identity and something she hopes to continue. Aside from her love of stories she loves Japan and its unique and beautiful culture and history. From their delicious sushi dishes right down to their wooden sandals and kimonos. She is also a huge cat person and loves to snuggle up in front of the fire for a good movie or book. Her favorite genres are paranormal and fantasy but she also loves anything written by thriller writer, Stephen King.
