A vampire and an assassin, Adriana had been duped into killing her ancestors. Now on a self-destructive path of vengeance, a sorcerer offers her a chance at redemption. He has information about her sister who is alive as a vampire. Adriana can save her from a life of evil. All Adriana need do is retrieve for him three magical shards which will give him the power to destroy the world.

About Mark Wooden

The son of a sharecropper (not really), Mark Wooden has actively pursued the dream of being a Creative since his first epic kindergarten work, “Ne-Ne the Vampire Panda.”

Though he prefers movies and comic books, Mark chose the novel as his creative outlet. They don’t cost anything to write, don’t have a budget and he is the only person who can slow his progress.

Mark uses his decade of experiences on the road as a video engineer to place human emotion into “Shadowdance,” his urban fantasy conspiracy. He makes monsters human and, sometimes, makes humans monsters by examining stereotypes and reimaging them into new icons for the modern reader.

Through “Shadowdance,” Mark allows readers to confront vampires, demons, werewolves and sorcerers from the comfort of an eBook.

“Shadowdance: Invitation to the Dance” is his first novel.
