Katrdeshtr’s Redemption, The Night Cat Book One. Description: “Ancient, brutal beauty, Katrdeshtr the Night Cat, Russian vampire and incorrigible mischief maker turns to old pleasures to relieve his eternal boredom, yet when his sometimes partner finds a new love, satisfaction takes on new meaning. This change of events can only end in someone’s eternal death and Kat doesn’t intend for it to be him!”
“…these long-lived, almost immortal, vampires have had to come to terms with so much through the centuries and I think this is probably one of the greatest strengths of Red Haircrow’s Katrdeshtr’s Redemption.” —Top2Bottom Reviews
“Written in vivid detail and elegant prose, the author has created rich characters with emotional depth, and provided a glimpse into the heart, soul, history, and people of Russia.” —Outlaw Reviews
“The best vampire stories always have an element of the exotic to them, but it’s rare that an author is able to saturate the story so thoroughly.” —Queer Magazine Online
“Red Haircrow embraces the nature of the vampire, adds in a Russian setting, and then wraps it all up in a narrative that is exotic enough to capture your attention, but which flows so well you never feel interrupted.”—Bibrary Bookslut
The Angel of Berlin. Released 23 May 2011…Description: “When Robin, a young university student, saves the life of a beautiful youth, he finds he’s made a devoted friend. But without memory and voice, the newly named Angel is a mystery, occasionally exasperating with his child-like qualities yet with touches of darkness which makes Robin wonder what kind of being he’s really taken in.A speculative fantasy of magical realism and innocent love set in modern Berlin.”
“No matter what he’s writing about, Red has an absolutely gorgeous style to his writing, with a narrative voice that is almost hypnotic.
This is a story that began with a dream, and that dreamlike quality comes through in the story. Red draws us into his dream with beautifully seductive language, painting a picture in our minds that is, at the same time, both vivid and subtle.” —Bibrary Bookslut
“There is no doubt Red Haircrow has a gift for descriptive prose; the vivid imagery the author presents through the selection of language sketches a picture for the reader that is rich in feeling and atmosphere. It is, in its way, quite poetic, and in the case of The Angel of Berlin lends to the dream-like quality of this lovely fantasy.” –Top2Bottom Reviews

Description: Starting a new life wasn’t turning out as easy as he’d hoped even though Andi Schaeffer is returning to his family’s ancestral home in Germany. After a failed affair and very public break-up with his former lover in America, life in the small picturesque town of Bad Alder is just what the former police officer is looking for: quiet anonymity and a place to regain his inner balance and calm.
But like the wide waters of Schartig Lake seen through the rear windows of the stately house, beneath the village’s calm surface lies a secret someone is willing to kill to keep hidden. Though he no longer has a badge, with the help of the quietly charismatic local polizist, Gerald Dahlke, Andi sets out to unravel the mystery and motive of murder.
