Chapter 1

Kaine sat at his desk and read his brother Aohdan’s letter over.

Kaine! Da is sick! You have to come back home. Aiden was told to not write. I was away and when I returned Da was down. Brother it hurts me to see him this way. I do not know if he will be in this world for long and it worries me. Rua Rainer has stepped up to help the young ones and my fur bunches to think Aiden or I were because of how he is taking care of the young ones. Kaine come home! No more wasting time away. Ma is gone, and Da has been going downhill for years. He tells you only what he wants you to know. He knows you will not listen to anything else. Brother I am telling you, get your ass home. This time listen to me. Rua will take the lead if Da dies and our family will no longer rule these mountains.

Kaine stopped reading, grabbed his keys off his desk and walked out of the office to his car.

Once inside the car he slammed his fist against the window pain. He could care less that he’d hit the window so hard it shook.

He yelled, “Da, what are you thinking letting that animal come near our clan?”

Kaine pounded the steering wheel. His body was tense, and his blue eyes turned gray. He needed to calm himself he thought.

He got out of his car and walked away before he did any damage inside. Despite his temperament, he found himself headed in the direction of the nearby park.

For six years, he’d stayed away from the Rocky Mountains. His father and brothers still lived near the stream at Oakea. The family was midway into the mountains but not too far up that the weather does not change. The cabin that his grandfather and grandmother built for their family still stood sturdy through tough winter storms.

Kaine’s father, Stephan Maccon, and siblings helped keep the land around the cabin cleared and vegetated. The lower village’s townspeople stayed clear of particular paths in the mountains if they hiked. Anyone who walked close to that area would say the area above where they did not trespass was not feasible to vegetation. They also passed gossip around that it was dangerous for folks if they trekked higher up because there was a strange type of wolf that dwelled in that area.

His grandmother, Stephan’s mother, who died several years before Kaine came into the world, loved her flower beds and tended them until she expected the first frost. She would fill their cabin with the scent of freshly cut wildflowers during their springs and summers. His brothers and sisters had separate areas to rest their heads, but when they were old enough they went off on their own. Mostly the boys, the girls lived nearby in the village of Oakea.

Kaine heard these stories over and over as he grew up. As he walked closer to the parks edge, he watched children playing and mothers sitting nearby watching and chatting with others on benches. The park was near his office, and he usually went there to think. Today he went there to figure out what he would do about his brother’s letter.

His younger brother Aiden was only twenty-one years old, he’d heard Aiden had a backbone but not enough to take on someone like Rua Rainer. Aohdan, twenty-six, strong willed, but more of a nature lover like their grandmother, had not sufficient

strength to take on any Rainer, Kaine thought. Perhaps one of the others in Rainer’s pack, but not Rua himself. Anyone who took on a pack leader had to be as strong as his Da, and cocky. Willful wasn’t enough; they had to be that assured of themselves to fight for what was right, and fight to kill if needed.

With a tensed body and balled fist, Kaine cursed his father. Dammit Da! Why did you have to get sick and not tell me? Why? Why is it so hard to speak to me? So I left! So I made a life for me! I deserved a bit of freedom. I worked hard to get where I am, and I refuse to….

He stopped. He knew his next thoughts would be lies, and he could not lie to himself. He wanted to say he would not go home. However, he knew if Rua took over as pack leader, the Maccon’s would be shunned and run off their land.

Kaine turned away from the children who agitated him, because they stirred up memories of his childhood. Facebook Twitter

Author Bio

Taabia Dupree was born in the United States and grew up on the Eastern Seaboard. Her love of books and anything with words came from her parents. As a young person, Taabia read anything she could get her hands on, from cereal boxes, to the Encyclopedia Britannica, to the National Geographic, to the business section of the local newspaper. Yet some of her favorite reads came from writers; L’Amour, Tolstoy, Eddings, Tolkein, Hugo, Wright, Dickens and Hemingway.

In 1999, Taabia started writing erotic fantasy stories for online story groups. She self-published her first erotic story in 2011. Today, Taabia Dupree writes coming of age stories, erotic short stories, mystery & psychological-thrillers, paranormal shapeshifter stories, and poetry.

Taabia enjoys a challenge. Her plans are to write more romance mysteries and shapeshifter books. So, keep watch for her books coming out in 2015, and 2016.

Author Taabia Dupree’s books include an Amazon Best Seller Jessica’s Obsession, book one in her Anthony Stone Series. This book was recently put on a Barnes & Noble bookstore shelf in Boston. Her book Wolfsblood is releasing March 20, 2015. It’s the first in a two part series in the paranormal genre for shapeshifters.


Where do you get your inspiration from?

One of the things that I am really drawn to is art and photography. I can see a picture and a story comes to light. Another way that I am inspired is by watching people. I can be anywhere and notice someone and instantly I become enthralled in an idea that they would make a great character. I have an unlimited source inside my head. I believe writers call them muses, and psychologist call them voices. (Big grin)

What words of wisdom would you pass on to other aspiring authors?

I tend to tell anyone who is interested in writing, write. Write your name, tell your story on a piece of paper. Find something of interest and write about that or write what in your head. Worry about grammar later. There are editors and proofreaders out there that will be more than happy to help you succeed. Don’t give up if anyone tells you that what you have written isn’t good enough. Join writer groups, find peers that are like you so you won’t feel alone. Get support and ideas from these groups that will enhance what you already know about your writing. Never give up, and always keep learning about what’s new out there in genres. Also, write outside of your box just once to have the experience of doing something different. Make your writing a challenge, and try not to be like everyone else, be different. Lastly, be leery of a good thing. If you are offered a contract, make sure you not the only one reading the fine print. Money may sound good, but be wise not to sell your soul. There are going to be people who want to read and review your work, be sure to copyright. Publish your work first before giving your work to a blogger or reviewer.

What is your favorite book you have written? Favorite character?

I loved writing all of my books, but my favorite character to write is Jessica of the Anthony Stone Series, book 1 Jessica’s Obsession. That first book was way outside of my box. It started with an idea. I wanted to stay within my erotica genre but I wanted to play around with mystery too. The model and pro ex-wrestler John Quinlan has many fans, and some are pretty wild about him. So, as I was reading one of his post one day on Facebook, I recalled a person who tried to use his name as their own. I remember when it happened John and I talked about this guy and how John had to get this guy blocked. While I read this particular post an adoring fan of his was saying how John inspired her. John thanked her and that anything that he has done to inspire anyone in their life is what keeps him humbled. Then I thought if I put a story together where a guy had someone so in love with him that she wanted to stalk him, what would happen. My character Jessica was born. I loved writing about Jessica because she is twisted, and will stop at nothing to get what she wants. I even surprised John and put his real name into the first book as himself. John is on both covers, Jessica’s Obsession and book two Flagentio’s. John has said he has gotten many types of fans in his past and present day.

What made you choose wolves? What led you to write this book?

I have been fascinated by wolves since childhood. I learned about my families mixed heritage, and Blackfoot and Cherokee where among the largest part of my families past. I studied American Indian culture, plus learned about the different types of tribal people. As my studies progressed into college I learned my totem was the wolf. No surprise to me, my fascination had turned to love. I’d always wanted to write a story that included wolves and it finally came to past when Billy Thomas, a bodybuilder, showed up to a photo shoot at a writer’s convention in Vegas. Billy became my cover model for WolfsBlood. His picture, his personality, and my idea of what a hero should be, made up the blend of the heart of a wolf. That is when I began to write the story about Kaine Maccon, and his clan. The name Kaine Maccon came from two contest winners for a competition I posted for fans to come up with a name for my main character in WolfsBlood. The name became the symbolism of heart and loyalty, like a wolf.

Who is your biggest author inspiration?

I would have to say there are four authors that inspired me, Judy Blume, Piers Anthony, David Eddings, and Tolkein. Judy Blume wrote Are You There God It’s Me Margaret, and ever girl back then wanted to increase their breast or know about menstrual cycles didn’t they? Ha. My best friend and I did, and after that I read every one of her books, even into adulthood. I liked her style and how she could put the reader inside the story. Which made her in my book, a great storyteller.

Anthony, Eddings, and Tolkein are three of my favorite fantasy writers. I never thought I could write fantasy. There is a fantasy novel inside of me dying to get out, and because of these gentlemen, I will write that epic novel. They took me on many journeys and had me believing every place I went was real, until the end of the book of course. Then I was back to reality wanting more. I want to write books like that I said, and I am hoping that I am on my may to being just as great as they are to millions of readers.

My Writing Process Blog Tour

The internet truly opens new worlds allowing us to make new friends from close to home and faraway. One of my new friends is Nancy Jardine (, who recently invited me to participate in the “My Writing Process Blog Tour.”

Thanks for the opportunity, Nancy. And by the way, Nancy lives is Scotland where it just so happens my novel “Trove” is partially set.

trove3DNow, onto my writing process!

Question 1: What am I working on?

I have several WIPs (works in process), but readers of the first book in Katie Walsh Mysteries, Trove, will be happy to learn that I am knee-deep in the second book, Harbinger.

While the end of Trove finds some of the mysteries seemingly solved, the story setting returns to Boston, Massachusetts from the Isle of Skye. In the scope of time, Harbinger begins several weeks after Trove ends and soon Katie and Alec are headed back to Willowton, in Somerset, England near the Bristol Channel.

Just as readers of Trove were challenged to rethink some long-held beliefs, Harbinger will delve deeper into the ancient history of Britain and the origins of the Druids and pull Katie and Alec into an adventure neither would have ever thought possible. Events will challenge their relationship and their actions will send out echoes like ripples on water.

I’m also working on a series of stories that sprouted from my short story, Rescuedpart of the NH Pulp Fiction Anthology “Love Free or Die” ( which is now set for release on February 14, 2015. This series, titled Tempting the Fates, is a light-hearted and somewhat zany trilogy of what happens when worlds collide.

And, I am collaborating on a paranormal romance series that will combine history and paranormal lore in what I think will be a very entertaining read.

Question 2: How does my work differ from others in the genre?

This is one of my biggest challenges in trying to market my books. Trove is a combination of mystery, adventure, suspense, and romance that seems to straddle many fences. I like to say it’s a “Romancing the Stone” meets “National Treasure.”

I love the paranormal, which includes much more than paranormal creatures (i.e. vampires, werewolves, shifters, etc.). Paranormal just means it’s not explainable by current scientific facts. What was once considered paranormal, say landing humans on the moon, to someone from the past is now fact.

My works are entertaining but they are also intended to challenge the reader to think “outside the box.” The puzzle pieces are there but in order to reassemble the picture you need to use all the pieces. If, as I believe, so many who’ve decided what the official version of history is have thrown pieces that don’t fit out of the box, then the picture they present may actually be very different than what really happened.

Question 3: Why do I write what I do?

I love history but I’ve come to the conclusion that one shouldn’t equate history with fact. During my lifetime of research, I’ve come across anomalies that made me step back reassess what I’d been fed as history. There are definitely mysteries that don’t fit into the proscribed story of humankind. If one is a true scientific person you can’t ignore the mysteries. You need to understand how they fit and if it creates an entirely new history, then that is something to consider not ignore.

My stories sprinkle some of these anomalies throughout and I attempt to get the reader to think of the possibilities that are yet to be really discovered.

I believe that the myths and legends of the ancients are based in fact. Like the childhood game of “telephone,” what has come down to use through the ages has been distorted and changed so much that we consider these works nothing more than quaint stories. I write about these lore in an attempt to involve the reader in the quest for knowledge!

Question 4: How does my writing process work?

I don’t have a process per se. I absorb information like a sponge, locking it away for future use. A solid idea will pop into my head seemingly from nowhere. (I freely admit I have a Muse nearby guiding me).

Once the idea appears I start writing. Though I am a panster (i.e. someone who writes without an outline) I am amazed that my story forms and flows as if I’d written an outline.

I do confess to revising as I write and this helps in the long run but slows me down quite a bit, but having said that, my final draft is pretty much my final story.

A word of advice to aspiring writers, some people will advise you to write every day, others like myself will say that’s not necessary for everyone. I know some days that my writing will be sub-par so instead of adding additional stress to my life I step away and come back another day invigorated and pumped up. You’ll find your own writing style and there’s no one that knows what you’re capable of better than YOU!

I hope I’ve given you a glimpse into my psyche. If you’re interested, my book Trove is available at Amazon (worldwide locations). Please check out the links of the “Purchase” tab for the US stores.

And now, let me introduce you to two additional writers who will be part of the blogging tour on Monday, March 2, 2014.

Linda Rae Sande

A self-described nerd and lover of science, Linda Rae spent many years as a published technical writer specializing in 3D graphics workstations, software and 3D animation (her movie credits include SHREK and SHREK 2). An interest in genealogy led to years of research on the Regency era and a desire to write fiction based in that time.

Now running the front office of a busy print shop, she’s developed an appreciation for pretty papers and spends time using them in her scrapbooks. She can frequently be found at the local cinema enjoying the latest movie. During the winter, she hosts several junior hockey players, and an indeterminate number of tropical fish live with her year-round. She makes her home in Cody, Wyoming.


Julie L. York

I am an author, graphic designer, editor, teacher, and mom – though not always in that order. I’ve been writing and designing since high school, when graphic design was called desktop publishing, PageMaker was the only option, and a red pen was the universal sign for a mistake. (I will be buried with a red pen in my hand!) Having written several different genres of books throughout my life, and finding the Good Ole Boy traditional publishing industry to be tear inducing, I abandoned my lifelong desire to be a published author around 2000.

In 2011, as a reward, I bought myself an iPod. Thanks to iBooks and the Kindle App, I’ve consumed thousands of eBooks since. I realized that many of the books that I’d been reading had been published using something called Smashwords. I went online and found an eBook publisher for do-it-yourselfers! Thrilled with knowing I could get my books published, I formatted my files for eBooks, created the covers, and uploaded. I found that Amazon’s eBook publishing was just as easy, so I re-formatted the books for them, and uploaded. I’ve continued writing new stories since – with them coming so fast, I almost can’t keep up with the ideas. I also edit for other authors, design book covers (print and digital), and write reviews for InD’tale magazine – at the same time as teaching and making sure my kids aren’t complete heathens.

More 5 star reviews for Trove

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!! October 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition

A murder… a little mystery… a little romancing… a lot of searching… I LOVED IT!!
This book worked my brain in ways that hasn’t happened in a very long time, and I loved it. Just the right amount of tension between the two leading characters with a group of secondary characters who are strong in their own right. This gives the story so much depth that I fell for the entire group. Love the sarcasm and posturing between the male characters, with the whip of the womens verbal slaps making a very real storyline.

I adore Katie Walsh. A super strong, independant woman making a name for herself in a mans world, she is a force to watch out for. She has her faults right along with very valid reasons for them.
Alec is out to find justice, and needs Katie in order to succeed in his quest. He has some faults as well, though again, I can’t hold them against him for long.

This book is one of those rare treasures you find that will work your brain as well as your heart, and keep you wanting more. So happy to know this is the first in the series and I will get another fix of Alec and Katie again soon!
A keeper that will be read many times! 5 stars!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A bit mystery and romance May 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed reading this book, because I, as lover of mystery, mythology and intrigue, found my fill here. It did not hurt with some romance either. Although I had my suspicion about the murder very early, it was still nicely solved. I am looking forward to continuation. Did her grandfather really killed his daughter on purpose? And will there be a HEA for Katie and Alec at the end?
5.0 out of 5 stars An exceptional start to an incredibly hot series! December 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A book I’ve fallen totally in love with, it’s kept me on the edge of my bed at night, chewing my fingers and giggling like a school girl. “Katie” is a character we all see a wee bit of ourselves in, the modern day woman who has been through a lot of ups and downs but is the better for it. When Katie meets back up with Alec after five years she’s in for a HUGE surprise, a surprise that leads her in a whirlwind of emotions, can they put their past behind them and work together to solve a mystery and a crime? I can NOT wait for the next “Katie” mystery, this series is truly exceptional in character detail, whodunnits and romance, what more could you want this holiday season?

Great story and pacing. Liked the plot twists. And I learned something about Celtics. An overall winner – and a keeper. Looking forward to reading Vol 2.

This review is from: Trove (The Katie Walsh Mysteries) (Kindle Edition)
I read a LOT. And this was one of the best books I’ve read all year. It had just the right mixture of romance and intrigue. I do enjoy books that deal with archaeology and artifacts, so I also loved that aspect of the book. I won’t do a detailed description of the book because that’s what blurbs are for, but I’ll just say that I couldn’t put this down, and I can’t WAIT for the sequel. Great work, KJ Montgomery!

This review is from: Trove (The Katie Walsh Mysteries) (Kindle Edition)
Wow! I was intrigued by the title and I’m so glad I followed my instincts. The mystery/ story-line is different and well developed. Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. The romance between Kate and Alec blends perfect with the challenges they face in their search for answers to prove the existence of a long ago civilization. Looking forward to Book 2, Harbinger. Kudos K J Montgomery!

InD’tale Magazine – 4 star review for Trove!

InD’tale Magazine has given “Trove  (The Katie Walsh Mysteries) a 4 star review.

Sandy Ponton from InD’tale says:

Trove” is a tempting beginning to a promising series.

The steamy love story is cleverly threaded through a secondary tale of lies and intrigue and keeps the pages turning effortlessly. . .

The Atlantis Legend

The lure of Atlantis is like the call of a Siren for many. It’s a vision of a utopian world that was rumored to be technologically and culturally advanced.

If we believe the tantalizing tidbits that have been scattered through time and history, then Atlantis was real and existed about 9,000 years before Plato. Since Plato died around 348 BCE, we can date the existence of Atlantis at approximately 11,000 BCE.

This is rather critical when we consider what was occurring on a planetary scale at that point in history. Earth was emerging from the latest Great Ice Age. And, it would have been roughly in a position that placed it at the opposite side of the Milky Way Galaxy, near the galactic center, halfway through the orbit of one galactic year, which takes 26,000 years to complete.

Many people were waiting for the fulfillment of what the common interpretation of the Mayan prophecy of December 21, 2012 declared. Words of catastrophic changes on Earth were counted down in a frenzied rush almost like staring down the oncoming train light while standing in the rail bed.

The legend of Atlantis that has survived and come down to us tells of the absolute and immediate destruction of the Atlantean civilization. What if the prophecy was correct, but the galactic center was at the other side of the galaxy. Was this what destroyed Atlantis? Was it a burst of radiation that connected with the power stations of Atlantis, overloading the power grid, setting off a catastrophic cascade?

And what if, since they were purported to be technologically advanced, they were able to predict the coming catastrophe and prepare for it? Could they have evacuated their homeland and scattered themselves across the globe? Could they have opened a dimensional portal and stepped through, waiting for the right time to return? And what if they were, as legend portrays, half human and half alien?

Join Katie Walsh and her colleagues as they attempt to get to the truth of Atlantis. The story starts with “Trove  (The Katie Walsh Mysteries Book #1)” and continues with “Harbinger  (The Katie Walsh Mysteries Book #2).



                                CELEBRATE BELTANE

Among the many rich Celtic myths and legends, there are days that are an affirmation of life. I’d like to introduce you to one of the more earthy and sensual Celtic celebrations, the time of Beltane or as many refer to it, May Day.

Most, if not all of us, have heard the saying:

April showers bring May flowers

And if you’re from New England it actually goes like this:

April showers bring May flowers and what do May flowers bring? (Think for a moment…)

Pilgrims!  I know it’s trite, but it goes over big with the elementary school crowd … but I digress.

April’s welcoming rains signal a change in seasons. Warm air from the south pushes back against the cold northern winds of winter, blowing them back to the Arctic hinterland. The Earth’s axis in relation to our Sun enables us to enjoy more hours of daylight further enhancing the warming cycle. It is a time of awakening.

In a previous blog posting, I introduced you to Celtic Legend of the Green Man. In it I wrote:

General consensus is that the Green Man is a symbol of fertility and rebirth. Every spring life begins anew as the countryside blooms. Early pagan cultures probably added him to their spiritual pantheon to mirror the human cycle of birth. Understanding basic biology, these early groups could have wondered, “How could Mother Earth give birth without some help?”

In answer to that question, I offer you the celebration of Beltane. While the celebration entails several activities, two of the more well-known are the Fire Ritual and the fertility celebration. Fire in and of itself is primarily considered a destructive force since it consumes matter, turning it to ash. Yet from the destruction and devastation, new life emerges. Seedlings sprout through the carnage reaching for sunlight long denied. The soil is enriched with nutrients released in the inferno. A transformation commences as the circle of life begins anew. For humans, the circle is complete when the Green Man impregnates Mother Nature and fertility is celebrated.

The peoples of Britain have, for centuries and perhaps much longer, celebrated the fertility rites by reveling and cavorting on Beltane night. Cattle were blessed with fertility by being driven through the smoke from the fires while humans cavorted in the woods. It was and still is a celebration of the sensuality of the reproduction of humans.

But is this all there is to the legend of the Green Man? Does it exist merely to be the Yang to Nature’s Yin? Get to know Katie Walsh and her fellow adventurers in Trove and the follow them in the next book in the Katie Walsh Mysteries, Harbinger, due out in late Summer 2013.
