Derrick is one of the creatus, created beings who have lived on the earth for more than four thousand years. Many questions surround the origin of these sentient beings who are stronger than humans, eat differently, and live longer. But they were created just as we were, maybe even before us. It is from them we obtain our fairy tales–and our nightmares. They are the reason we believe in superheroes–and monsters. Because…they exist.
In the past, they kept the human race safe from an anonymous distance. But now Derrick must come out of the darkness to save a woman he has no business loving, even if doing so may threaten his entire race.

What was your inspiration for this book?
Since the beginning of the written word, storytellers have shared myths about supernatural beings. So, I did tons and tons of research about vampires, superheroes, and other myths, since they all share common traits, and I wanted to tell a story based on what seemed logical to me.
Personally, I love magical realism. I am a reader, and I want to believe. In order for me to believe, though, the story has to follow scientific laws. The idea of a person shifting into an animal form that’s ten times the size of its human form, or a person having the ability to fly without the required body mechanics, makes little sense to me. And in order for a body to function–corpse or not–it has to have a heart that pumps life-giving blood through its veins. But, I can’t discount that since biblical days, stories have amassed about sentient beings with superhuman strength. So…
CREATUS, from the Latin word meaning “created” are the reason we believe in fairy tales—and monsters. Superheroes didn’t come about from being bitten by a vampire, a werewolf, or a spider. Instead, perhaps the same superior being who created us created them.
The Creatus Series is not your normal paranormal story…it’s a realistic twist of the myths you’ve heard your entire life. So, if you like a little reality in your fantasy, prepare to believe…
Why did you decide to produce an audiobook?
Because I love movies that stay true to the story line, but they are few and far between. To me, if you have a great storyteller, an audio book is akin to an adaptation of a book, word for word. And I always look for "storytellers" when I look for narrators!
How did you choose the reader for the book and the production company?
Marcio Catalano brought the story to life more than any narrator I'd interviewed for the position. I found myself crying — and laughing — as I listened to the story. If a narrator can make me laugh and cry, even though I wrote the story, I'm all in!
If you have listened to this book let us know what you think in the comments. We’d love to hear from you!
