Mary is an offspring of the counter-culture mind-blown hippie movement that sprung up north of the Bay Area after the sixties. She roamed through the landscape with all of the other half-feral, half-naked, half-educated children running wild in the hills and forests of Northern California, like Titania's fairies roamed through the Grecian wood or Wendy's lost boys roamed through Neverland, dancing through buttercups, oak leaves, and wild strawberries.
She continued to roam as she grew older, through Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, finally landing in San Francisco where she currently resides with three pesky roommates and two mellow cats, no wait switch that.
She has taken her love of adventure and turned it to the pen to write about all the strange, fabulous, and unexpected in this world.
Most anthropologists believe eons ago there were over fourteen species of human. They also believe only one of those species survived beyond the ice age. They are wrong. Three species of human have endured and now live in modern society. Homo angelus have wings. Homo daemonis have horns and a tail. Homo sapiens have no idea the other two exist. Sarah Connelly's job is to ensure it stays that way.
Sarah is a half-daemon rookie agent for the international daemon and angel police force, SITO. She has been assigned to protect an orphaned, half-angel child, Kels. The child has been receiving attention from an extreme religious group, the Anakites, who are rumored to believe their divine cause is to cleanse the earth of all impure human species, meaning all non-angels.
All hell breaks loose when an angel is caught stalking Kels. SITO arrests the angel, Aaron, who claims he was only watching over the child. Aaron warns Sarah that Kels is in serious danger from the Anakites and that only he knows how to protect the child. Sarah decides to trust Aaron, which means going against orders from her superiors at SITO. This puts her deep in Anakite territory without backup, a dangerous place to be for a rookie half-daemon agent. There she uncovers the Anakites' plot to make a brutal example of the hybrid child, and if she was wrong to trust Aaron, she herself will meet a similar fate, a fate that would frighten even the most hardened hero.
