Since becoming a new species of a mixed blooded were- creature, Carly knew her life with Drake would be full of adventures, but she had imagined he would be by her side her for said adventures. Instead Drake mysteriously has to ‘go away’, leaving Carly alone to face becoming the Queen to a rogue group of WereBats, that their kind are responsible for kidnapping her twice and her new change in species, whether she really wants to be their Queen or not. She wasn’t left with much choice in the matter when the group defended her from demons in her own backyard. Yes, demons! Satan has gotten some crazy ideas (or, maybe not so crazy ideas) about Carly and will stop at nothing to see her dead, including attacking the children Carly has just sworn to protect. Apparently Satan never heard the phrase ‘Hell Hath no fury like a woman scorned’, and Carly will be damned if anyone threatens the people she loves. Now in order to keep her babies and loved ones safe, Carly, with a lot of help from her friends, must put the Devil back in his place.
The Devil ́s DNA is a novel about the mystery of DNA. It attempts to tease the reader ́s intellect and defy traditional categories - possibly it is a novel of ideas produced in reponse to the science of genetic engineering, possibly a thriller, possibly a Scottish romance. It can be seen as a response to the science of genetic engineering, just as Robert Louis Stevenson ́s "The Body Snatcher" was a response to the new science of anatomy. The plot is that of an adventure story in which the villains use genetic engineering for illegal purposes. The book also incorporates an exploration of the theme of genetics in a wider sense, encompassing popular genealogies of kings and queens, family and sexual relationships, and the author ́s own blood relationship to RLS. The book is set mainly in Scotland, in Edinburgh and East Lothian, the places where RLS and the author lived as children. The little island, the Bass Rock, which Stevenson uses for a kidnap in "Catriona" and on which he placed a protagonist with the name of the author ́s great grandfather, is central to the book.

“My manuscript is a significant true portrayal about the horrors of living in constant fear in concentration camps during World War Two. This is a compilation of personal stories conveyed to me by my parents, who were survivors of the treachery, cruelty, atrocities and inhumanities. This dramatic and compelling story is about Auschwitz-Birkenau, where my father was incarcerated for four years, and Ravensbruck, where my mother was incarcerated for two years and tragically lost both of her small children into the ovens of death. I describe their plight, their horrific experiences, their struggles and fight for survival while living on the edge of death in Satan’s playground, which was an indescribable living nightmare. I implemented historical facts and dates into the manuscript which blend nicely into this intriguing and engrossing story. I concentrate immensely on the inflicted human tortured soul. I portray the deep human emotions, their innermost thoughts, and psychological changes, as a result of their constant physical agony, brutality and mental torture that they were subjected to, which ultimately changed their lives forever. I vividly describe the impact that was created on them in that hostile and dangerous environment both outside, and especially the conflicts inside the inmates’ barracks, which gradually changed every human being forever, and subsequently altered their lives permanently. I strongly emphasize their enduring and immense strong desire to overcome all obstacles in their path, and survive at all costs in spite of adversity in their journey through hell.”
