Vampire of Blackpool by Catherine Green

Here is an excerpt from Vampire of Blackpool, one of my passion projects that I birthed several years ago:


            “Meredith!” she called, hurrying over to me, “You came!”

            She held a glass of wine in one hand and a small clutch bag tucked under her other arm. I stood still as she approached, careful to keep my expression blank. She faltered a little as she realised I was not so excited about her presence.

            “Are you alright?” she asked uncertainly, “You look pale.”
            I had to smile at her sweet naivety, and she tried not to gasp as she saw my fangs exposed.

            “I am hungry,” I replied, “I have not yet found suitable food.”
            “Oh,” she said quietly, glancing around her, “Where do you usually, um, find food?”

            I simply stared at her, allowing my eyes to glow silver. She caught her breath, momentarily struggling with her desire to appease me, and her as yet stronger urge to repel me using her magic. I sensed the landlord approaching us before he spoke.

            “You know the rules, Meredith,” Paul said levelly, “No feeding in my pub. Take it outside.”

This was a snippet of conversation between the vampire protagonist Meredith Hanson, and her new friend and potential lover Samantha Morris. If you want to read more and indulge yourself in a little contemporary vampire romance, buy the book here. Vampire of Blackpool is the first in a new and developing series that I am calling my vampire hunter novels. Let’s see if I can return to my old manuscripts in 2021…

Compassion and Love Hurts (A Redcliffe Novel)

Since qualifying as a Reiki Master Practitioner I have been meditating on the daily precepts by which we live in reiki circles. One of these is: “Be compassionate to yourself and to others.”  This got me thinking, how does Love Hurts (A Redcliffe Novel) deal with this issue? Do my characters feel compassion for each other, do they have strong decisive morals, or are they completely indifferent?


My heroine Jessica Stone believes herself to be an independent and compassionate woman. She does not show prejudice, she lives a good honest, hard working life, and she is friendly to everyone that she interacts with. But when she discovers that the man she loves is a vampire, and his brother is a werewolf, her morals go out of the window. In her confusion she experiences adultery, pain, heartbreak and terror.

Following her tumultuous experience after the revelations of the people she loves, Jessica is thrown into turmoil about her own feelings. Her friends and lover have betrayed her in the worst possible way. How does she continue? Her story is told in the sequel Love Kills (A Redcliffe Novel). The title alone may give you some idea where this paranormal romance is heading.

Will Jessica show compassion and remain faithful to her vampire Jack Mason? Will she share herself with his werewolf brother Danny? Or will she leave them altogether, and make a clean break and a fresh start?
