SPHINX RESURRECTED Excerpt

Michael was spell-bound watching her.  At first, he thought perhaps she wanted to just have the feel of the fresh grass under her feet while searching out the Life Force.  But to his surprise, she was quite the quick study.  As soon as she had made contact with the bare earth and searched the Life Power out, it had been drawn to her like it had been waiting for her forever.  It embraced her much like the way he wanted to.  To surround her in his energy and enjoy every square inch of her while she responded to him in a way the pure rapture on her face indicated she was responding now.  He watched and almost felt he was guilty of spying on something intimate.  She was a natural, harnessing the Life Power and quickly her body showed it.  Her skin was sparkling and glowing from head to toe and he could see where her eyelashes were brushing her cheeks there was a slight glow coming from her eyes.  He realized he had to intervene or she would quickly absorb too much.  Being her first experience, his little Power Keeper could quickly get into trouble with what to do with it and possibly injure herself or someone near her.  Had he known her intentions, he would have cautioned her on how far to go with this first experience.

He stepped up as close as possible to her as he could.  Reaching out, he moved to place his hands on specific spots used for contact during the Transference of Life Power. He had to place them correctly to make sure there was no back lash from the Life Power rampantly running through her.  He grasped both of her arms with his hands positioned under her forearms and slid them as close as possible to her elbows.  Luckily, with the movement, Stormy naturally grasped his forearms with her hands.  He leaned forward and whispered in her ear, “Stormy, I hate to interrupt your enjoyment, but this is the first time for you as a Power Keeper, and any more we will both be in trouble.”  On so many levels – he groaned in his mind.

Introducing Christine Murphy – Author of SPHINX RESURRECTED

Christine Murphy wanted to create a unique story unlike the usual vampires, demons, angels, shape changers, and other paranormal story lines. What she accomplished was a distinctive world with powerful characters, scenic civilizations, intense conflicts, and the all-important love and passion by reaching back into the Egyptian world and its artifacts. Today there is great mystery and intrigue over how the Egyptian civilization came Leader, who is her mentor, protector, and one true love.

A careerist in clinical laboratory, a wife, and mother, Christine Murphy has tackled the exciting world of the paranormal romance author in her spare time.  An avid romance enthusiast overall, she has long enjoyed delving into new worlds and characters through her imagination and has read hundreds of books through the years.  Having had quite the imagination since childhood, she decided to put all that creativity down on paper and share it with the world.

At the beginning of 2012, Christine came to the conclusion that she wanted to take on the challenge and commit to becoming a serious author.  “After watching my husband go through chemotherapy  and a bone marrow transplant, I really started looking at my own life.  Life is just too short and I wanted to find something that allowed my inner enjoyment of life to blossom and not just go through the everyday existence of being.  I wanted to reach out and share the stories that are brimming over in my imagination and gift them to the romance enthusiasts out there.”

So, starting in March, Christine tackled the creation of her first book set, The Sphinx Warriors Series.  She wanted something unique and not the usual vampire, werewolf, shape-shifter characters of the paranormal.  So she researched time periods of the past that might spark an idea and was inspired by the Egyptian time of Pyramids, Sphinx, deserts, and Warriors.  Thus was born The Sphinx Warriors.

“Actually creating the characters, their social structures, their habitation, and the plot and conflicts to move the story forward was the easy part.  Learning the proper format of the manuscript, query, letters, the synopsis, and querying agents and publishers was the difficult, painful part.  Overall, I can’t complain, though, as many authors out there have been trying to get published for years.  It took me roughly seven months and was offered a contract by Red Sage Publishing.  The first book, Sphinx Resurrected, will be released February 1, 2013.”

The next book in The Sphinx Warriors Series, Sphinx United,  is also complete, and a third being written.  She is also starting work on additional paranormal romances that will include hunky vampires who protect their unsuspecting mortals and angels who will give up heaven to be with their charges.
