I am the broken son.
The soulless brother.
I live in a world of power and twisted corruption that toys with life and death. I fear nothing except losing My Little Mouse. She’s my obsession.
She likes to run, and I enjoy the chase. But now there’s a serial killer chasing what’s mine. If they touch her, I’ll make sure they suffer. They have no idea the destruction I'll unleash.
I’ll rip their soul from their body, and then feed their corpse to Allison.
Mors tua vita mea est. Your death, my life.
Gail Haris believes in fairytales, love, and laughter as the best medicine. However, she enjoys writing murder, laughter, and steamy happily ever afters.
She loves living in her small town in Southeast Missouri. She married her high school sweetheart (real life book boyfriend) and has a degree in Mass Communications. While Gail has always been a book whore, she didn’t start writing until after the birth of her first daughter. Midnight feedings turned into writing sessions, and before she knew it, she had a series.
Gail’s writing style incorporates her warped sense of humor and awkward charm to create stories that have a mixture of heart, humor, suspense, and unexpected twists. Her emotional roller coasters always lead to a happily ever after - you just have to survive the ride. Her books are contemporary, romantic comedy, romantic suspense, and new adult.
When she’s not writing, she can be found singing with her two daughters or laughing with her amazing husband, Bobby or as she calls him, The Boo. She hopes that by pursuing her dreams, it’ll encourage her daughters to always chase theirs.
Never give up on your dreams, love, books, and coffee. Don’t forget the coffee ;)

If she isn’t reading or writing, Brooks is Pinteresting future home projects for her wonderful husband to accomplish or hanging out with her three lovely children.
