Dale’s Descent begins in a small mining town in western Pennsylvania, where his mortal life begins and ends. Dale recounts his story, in a soulful manner, full of hurt and disappointment as he watches all of his dreams and aspirations suddenly fade away. His descent into darkness begins as he is forced into the life of a creature of the night; compelled to hunt and kill innocent people in order to survive. His journey spans decades of personal struggle in his search to find answers to why he was attacked and taken. Finally, left all alone, he wanders in a seemingly empty world, a lost boy – unknown and uncared for – searching for a way of escape. When Dale is discovered by the Charleston Coven, he is stunned by the revelation of an immortal life that was his all along. He begins to grow and mature with his new found family. He finds happiness and his life changes with the discovery of a teacher, a lover, and ultimately an eternal mate in this story of a boy that was lost and found again.
After the brutal murder of her parents, Katelyn Corbin, a twenty-one year old college senior, must face the prospect of resuming her life. Soon after arriving in historic Charleston, SC, Katelyn meets James Dubois a handsome young widower and wealthy patron of her school. The chemistry is instantaneous between the two of them. James, living alone in the beautifully restored colonial plantation of Whitehall Manor, is a mysterious man, with an old world aristocratic bearing. But James is not the man Katelyn thinks, and as their love grows, she begins to have questions. Why does a perfect gentleman seem so different? Dark secrets begin to surface and Katelyn finds that old folklore and fairy-tales are real in a world where vampires live and exist side by side with humans. Will love overcome all? Can she give up all she knows and all she is to be with him? Can she make the right decision when it comes to James, the Master of Whitehall?
Veal’s writing style is somewhat different in that he writes in a niche between Gothic horror and modern day vampire literature that no other author has delved into yet. He is one of only a small handful of authors who adhere to the classical, lethal vampire instead of the more popular romanticized versions portrayed in current literature. His characters are not the modern whitewashed version of vampires but more of a cross between Bram Stoker’s vampires and the ones found in present day paranormal literature. While they are likable they are ~ NOT~ human and the body count that piles up is astounding even though the vast majority of the victims are criminals of the worst sort.

In the long awaited prequel to The Epic Saga of The Master of Whitehall, Charlotte Ann Erickson has decided that at long last she must tell her story; one that is shrouded in the fog of myths and imaginations. It spans four centuries, and has been a closely guarded secret in the past. She reached this decision primarily because she feels it is long overdue for humans to hear some hard truths about the immortal world. Charlotte Ann bares her soul, giving insights into the life of a vampire. She was made in the days when life was cheap and immortals were hunters and killers. Look through her eyes as she relates her story, dispelling modern misconceptions of immortals. Step into her shoes and recognize humans as she does … creatures of no real importance outside of sustenance. Listen as she tells of her evolution over the centuries into a modern predator … and when her story is told, watch, as once again, she quietly fades away, back into the mists of folklore and fantasy.
Charlotte Ann's coven is set primarily in England and the European Mainland.
“An eloquent and uniquely told paranormal love story that is certain to become THE vampire love story of the century!”
