Welcome to this week’s Friday Author Spotlight! Today I have J.L. Hendricks with her book Eclipse of the Warrior, from her Interdimensional Saga.
J.L. Hendricks (A lady never reveals her age) is a new independent author. The Interdimensional Saga series is her first one and she is very excited to share Book 1, Eclipse of the Warrior. J.L. is currently writing full time, but before she started writing she had a successful career as a Purchasing Manager and Contracts Administrator. She is very proud to have served in the US Army before she went to college.
She decided to finally write, and finish a book this year because of a few friends who encouraged her to do so. She hopes her stories entertain you and can bring a laugh on occasion.

About the Book
Vampires? Fae warriors? Who knew they were real. Somebody must have and they should have let the rest of us know.
While coming out of a movie, I followed a group of super-hot guys and ended up regretting it. I was pulled into the fight and I don’t know how I did it, but I killed a vampire! Now I’m running for my life.
I’m not supposed to know about their world, being a lowly human and all, but I also shouldn’t have been able to kill a vampire; a ripper is what they call themselves.
Now I have a choice. Well not really. A choice means options and mine are bad or worse. I can die or I can become a hybrid fae. Like I said, not much of a choice, one that sucks actually.
If I choose to become a fae, I have to help them fight the rippers who are kidnapping humans to take back to their planet. Oh, did I mention that they’re all from another dimension? They change humans into hybrid rippers and use them on the front lines of the battle between their two races.
The fae describe them as suicide bombers. Yep. Those are my choices…

These guys were extremely good looking. Man I could not stop thinking about how
good looking they were, DeeDee would be making fun of me right about now if she
were here with me. She would probably say something along the lines of, “You know B,
McHotty’s have hearts too. You shouldn’t just be concerned with their bodies, what
about their minds?” Then we would bust up laughing and continue talking about their
Aaaahhh, if only DeeDee had come to meet me for dinner and a movie after my
interview. This would be so much more fun if she were here. I silently mused.
Maybe it was a photo shoot with hunky male models? What about that Comic-Con that
was going on at the convention center? I let them enter the crosswalk before I slowly
followed them. I hoped I might get to watch either a movie being filmed, or some crazy
Wouldn’t DeeDee just love a bunch of photos from some crazy new male cologne photo
shoot or, something. I thought to myself as I continued to follow them down the street.
There were five guys in total, the first one I noticed had caramel colored skin with long,
dark brown hair that fell in waves to the man’s shoulders. Oh, how I wanted to run my
fingers through that gorgeous mane of hair! While I couldn’t get a good enough look at
his face, he appeared to be about 23? He was a little young for me. “Momma didn’t
raise no cougar!” I quipped.
Well, maybe for him I would consider it…
His friends all looked young as well, ranging from maybe 18 to 24. When they walked
under a bright street light I noticed they all had pointy ears and were carrying weapons.
One had what looked to be a katana sword. The McHotty I noticed earlier had two
swords strapped to his back that were curved. And the other three had long knives
attached to their belts. Two looked to also have guns under their black jackets, but I
couldn’t be sure that was what those bulge’s were.
“Hmm, this seems a little strange, even for a photo or movie shoot. Where are the
wardrobe people, other actors, or even a director?” As I whispered that I realized I
really needed to stop talking to myself. Even if I am in L.A. people are going to wonder
about my sanity.
All the guys wore black combat boots, not strange since this was L.A., but they all were
wearing tight, black leather pants and each had a different type of black leather jacket.
What kind of photo shoot were these models heading to? Or was it a movie shoot? I
really needed to figure this out.
I kept following them, even after they passed where I parked my car. I decided that I
really wanted to see what they were up to. And I still needed to get a photo to send to
All five guys turned down an alley, so I peeked around the corner hoping to see what
they were up to. I couldn’t believe my eyes at first. If this was a film set, where was the
director or the crew members? That is when I realized I made a huge mistake following
In the alley waiting for the five “fae warriors” as I called them, were seven beings that
could only be described as vampires! A cold feeling started to creep up my back as I
realized that I needed to get out of there, and quick.
I made the mistake of letting out a yelp before putting a hand over my mouth to keep
quiet. But it was too late; one of the vampires noticed me and grabbed me before I had
a chance to get away from the alley.
As he was grabbing my left arm I wondered how he made it over to me so quickly, he
had to have been at least one hundred yards away when he first saw me.
I swear DeeDee is gonna pay for talking me into following these guys! I thought as the
vampire dragged me further into the alley.
