Watch the Trailer for Book 2 The Devil and the Muse
In this fast-paced second installment of The Creatives Series, Creative (mystic artist) Coco Rhodes is surprised by a horrific vision beneath her most recent painting: the violent attack upon a fragile young girl. When a link is discovered between an education-finance fraud and several girls disappearing from Washington, D.C. schools, Coco’s lover and leader of the Allegiance, the vampire-warlock Gabriel, vows to rescue the girls, and topple a corrupt congressman.
Crossing the boundaries of genres, “A Secret Muse” is a richly textured novel of good and evil, light and dark... Jackson-Beverly is a born storyteller and has created this suspenseful and compulsively readable story that is truly a gift.
This contemporary thriller filled with mystical adventure, captivated me from the first paragraph and kept me turning the pages. The only reason I ever put the book down was to catch my breath.
Amazingly inventive story. I loved the layers of detail in the story. The descriptions of Italy and the art world were lovely. If you like a conspiracy this had plenty to intrigue you.
If this is a first book I want more. You have gifted us with a new land which should offer many tales.
Award winning and bestselling author, Mandy Jackson-Beverly was born in the bustling town of Pyramid Hill, Victoria, Australia … Population: 419. This remote childhood kick-started Mandy’s imagination, as did the rugged coastline and rolling hills of Tasmania, where her family relocated when she was four years old.
In 1982, Mandy moved to London, where she discovered the importance of the creative collective: The 1980s fashion scene. A year later, in Los Angeles, she found her own creative freedom among the thriving, no-holds-barred visionaries of the music video world. As a costume designer and stylist Mandy worked for photographer Herb Ritts, and directors Joel and Ethan Coen, David Fincher, and Julien Temple, and music icons David Bowie, Madonna, and Tina Turner, to name a few.
