Benjamin Carpenter would do anything for the people he cares about. He risked his life to find a cure for vampirism to make his lover mortal. He penetrated the veil of darkness to rescue his best friend when he transformed into a wendigo. Now Benjamin's the one who needs help. An ancient prophecy claims that he has been ordained to bring about the end times, an act he couldn't begin to imagine himself capable of. However, he is developing new powers at an alarming rate, and the forces of both good and evil are rising up to lay claim to him, t caring about the path of destruction they create in the process. With time literally ticking away until the apocalypse arrives, Benjamin's friends-vampire lover Thomas Nighthawk, gypsy practitioner Kenda Ravenwood and comic book store owner Ivan Salazar-are ready to do whatever it takes to keep the end times at bay, but are they prepared to kill him to prevent him from fulfilling his destiny as the Bringer of Darkness?
Lee Pulaski grew up in the dry heat of Arizona in a small town called Chino Valley. Lee has always enjoyed writing, although it took some time for him to develop the courage to get his work into the public eye. Lee also has a love affair with the theatre, starting to write plays in high school before moving to full-length novels in recent years. In his junior year, one of those plays, Murder on the Boardwalk, was selected for production. Although it was never published, Lee received royalties for the play, which has kept him writing ever since. Ironically, a dry spell in Lee's creative juices in 2006 prompted him to take a vacation in Wisconsin with family. Getting into a new environment and seeing the beauty of the fall colors is what inspired Lee to write his first novel, The Colors of Love and Autumn. which was first published as an e-book in September 2008 through Torquere Press. Lee enjoys photography when he is not writing-and sometimes even while he is. He tries to get outdoors whenever he can to take photos. Having learned how to read at age 31/2, Lee also loves to read as often as possible, enjoying mysteries mostly, although he'll read any good story. Lee lives in Shawano, Wisconsin, with his roommate Keith, his dog Toby, and the dream of someday having one of the men in his stories come to life and sweep him away.
