Meet Raleigh Nichols

Have you read my paranormal romance, The Spirit Within? If so, then you’ll know who this rugged mechanic is. Meet Raleigh Nichols, the inimical boyfriend of the main character, Cassy Blakemore.

Who is this irreverent soul?

He’s a hard working mechanic who’s employed full-time at the local body shop. His name is Raleigh Nichols and is crazy in love with his girlfriend, Cassy Blakemore. Sure, he may be a tad overbearing and a bit cynical, but that doesn’t stop him from wanting to please his girl with his sultry, southern charm. The way Raleigh’s sensual touch melts Cassy’s heart, gets her every time. Well, that is until the day Raleigh’s inner darkness emerges. A darkness that becomes so brutal that it creates a terrifying wedge between the two lovers.

Their love is undeniable, but the personal turmoil that Raleigh battles causes him to lose the fight to alcoholism. While his thirst grows deeper for the bottle, his anger becomes intensified as his emotions become explosively abusive towards Cassy. Raleigh’s apologies are hollow and ignored, but that doesn’t end his relentless obsession with his girlfriend.

Before the final straw breaks, Cassy discovers supernatural abilities that she never knew she had. It’s thanks to these newly found powers that keep her world from totally disintegrating.

How does Raleigh deal with Cassy mysteriously “zoning out”? And how does this volatile relationship continue….. or does it? Get your very own copy of my novel, The Spirit Within available on Amazon!

Artful Expressions

Hi everyone, hope you’re enjoying an exciting weekend full of adventure! I just wanted to take this moment to share with you a personal side of me. As you all know, I’m a published author and poet, an empath and a paranormal researcher who has had many paranormal experiences throughout my life, but what you might not know is that I am also an extremely passionate artist. I find great inspiration from the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Salvador Dali and Vincent van Gogh. However, regardless who the artist is, art is such a beautiful form of expression. Whether one chooses to create magnificent pieces of enchantment with oils, acrylics, watercolors or even pencils, the imagination can unleash such exquisite perceptions.

The following pieces are some of my own creations. I hope you enjoy them! And if you would like to check out more of my artistic creations, including poetry… visit this page, Poetry & Art by Sheila Renee Parker.

Love & Light,                                                                                                                             Sheila
