I have spoken of Penn Scripter before and here is where I reveal all!
To answer the question, WHO IS PENN SSCRIPTER?
The short of it is simply Penn Scripter is the mother-daughter writing team of unexpected paranormal romance.
Here's the Long of it
Penn Scripter is the nom de plume for the writing team of S.N. and Carol McKibben. This mother-daughter combo writes unexpected paranormal romance. Separately, they each have a healthy list of novels.
S.N. McKibben dirty stories revolving around social taboos, none of which is for the weak of heart. Some of the material is adult, strong language and opinions, and, yes, sex. Among her titles you’ll find: Cougar Bait in the Coffee Shop; The Demon Inside Me; Dr. Vampyre; The Spoils of Allsveil; and Escape to Vampire Dam.
Carol McKibben is known as “the author who writes from a dog’s eyes.” Her love of animals, especially dogs and horses, is obvious in everything she writes. Unconditional love is the theme that runs through all her books, which to date have been narrated by dogs or wolves. Her books include award-winning Luke’s Tale – A Story of Unconditional Love; Snow Blood Seasons 1-5 - A Vampire Mystery Thriller Series; Moon Blood Books 1-5 – The First Blood Son Series; and Kane – The First Blood Son Prequel, some of which may be surprising love stories.
The two authors have combined their talents and interests to produce unexpected paranormal romance that will include fantasy, mythology, paranormal, dogs and horses, relationships, unusual circumstances, and, of course, romance.
Current projects include a fantasy novel entitled, Triad, and a contemporary paranormal romance, The Transformation of Charlie.

English (UK) Authors
Writing has been Toya’s passion since a very early age. Sadly, it wasn’t until the death of her mum, who was also her best friend, in 2009 that she started to take it seriously. Her mother’s wish was to see her published, which didn’t occur until 2014. And now, each book she publishes is dedicated to her.
Always a shy person, becoming an author has helped to broaden her horizons and grow in confidence. Toya still laughs when she reflects on her dislike of social media. One by one, she began to use different platforms and is now very active on FB, Twitter and Instagram – not forgetting her brand new website. Now she is quite vocal about how important these platforms are for networking, an huge aspect of an indie author’s life. If not for social media, she would never have connected with two of her three publishers.
Social media to her is a wonderful way to connect with fellow authors and readers. So many friends have been made by her in this way, she loves nothing more than helping others. It still amazes her how wonderful and supportive the indie author community is. Everyone, without exception, is always willing to give others a hand. She always says she may not be an expert but is always willing to share anything she does know.
Whilst attending a workshop many years ago she learned a very valuable lesson from another author. He said, “Write because you love to write. If you’re doing it for the money, you may as well forget it now.” This is so true and is her mantra.
It still amazes her how much she’s grown when it comes to “putting herself out there”. She loves to read live from her work when she partakes in numerous FB takeover events. She’s given talks about her writing journey to Women’s Institute groups, and one at the assisted living facility where she works. She also enjoys open mic events. These still fill her with nerves, but that’s normal. And starting this year, she is about to embark on several big author signings, which she’s very excited about. Finally getting to meet so many people she’s connected with via social media.
Apart from working on her Destination Contemporary Romance series, she’s currently planning a Paranormal Romance series called Nature’s Warriors. A series of fantasy romances, notes in books at present, which she’s very excited about. And as if that isn’t enough to keep her occupied, she’s attempting to push herself even further. Toya’s written a standalone Rock Star Romance, which she is attempting to self-publish. This is to prove to herself she can push her boundaries, even though it terrifies her. Always happy to learn new skills and take advice from others is helping her to grow as an author, and person.
When not writing, or reading her main hobbies are; cinema, theatre, gardening, keeping fit, travelling, watching live bands, Formula One racing, watching darts and spending time with friends. She lives in Suffolk, UK with her husband, grown up son and Masai the cat.
“Hi, it’s me.”
“Nice of you to call me, Faith, where have you been?”
The sarcasm in his tone irritated her, she glanced at the clock and shook her head. “We only spoke a short while ago.”
“That’s too long. You should want to speak to me all the time.”
“My editor called…”
He cut her off in mid flow. “Oh, I get it. Now your books are doing well you think you don’t need me.”
“No, Faith, now you listen to me…”
Not anymore she wouldn’t. The time had come to tell him how she felt, she steadied herself.
“Sorry, Alan, I can’t do this any longer.”
“What do you mean? Have you finally realised you can’t write? It’s about time you saw sense.”
“No, Alan, we’re finished.” Faith jostled the phone to her other ear.
“What the hell do you mean by that? Why?”
Faith sighed and closed her eyes. “You know why.”
“Oh, please enlighten me!”
“You’ve never once supported my dream to be a published author.”
“Yes I damn well have.”
“Don’t lie,” she responded with frustration. “You’re only interested now because I’ve been signed.”
“That’s not true and you know it. Marry me, Faith, you need me.”
She gasped with surprise at his response. “I don’t need you and I’m certainly not marrying you.”
“Who the hell do you think is going to pick up the pieces when your book deal turns to crap, huh?”
“Just stop it. I can look after myself.”
“Yeah, sure you can. Where the hell will you get the money to support yourself, answer me that?”
She ran a hand across her forehead.
“Deny it all you want, but you can’t cope without me.”
She gritted her teeth. “You’ve proved how shallow you are. We are over. End of story.”
“This is crazy, listen to me.”
“No, Alan, not anymore. I’ll leave your stuff on the porch. I want it gone as soon as possible.”
She ended the call before she heard anymore and threw her mobile phone on the sofa with exasperation. When the phone rang again, she picked it up, cancelled the call and blocked his number.
Faith walked into the kitchen, grabbed a bottle of water from the fridge and drank deeply. She ambled back into the living room, flopped onto a chair and closed her eyes, rubbing the cold bottle along her forehead. Now she’d made the dreaded phone call, she needed some company. Picking up her mobile once more, she rang Leah, her best friend.
“Hey, Leah, it’s me. I’ve told Alan it’s over.”
Leah asked her loads of questions about her conversation with Alan.
“Yes, I’ve blocked his number. No, he can’t get in here. I had the foresight to change the locks before I called him. I’ve also packed up all his stuff and left it on the front porch for him to collect.”
She held the phone away from her ear while Leah hooted and cheered loudly.
“What I need right now though, is some time with my best friend. Can I stay at yours tonight? I don’t want to be here when Alan comes to retrieve his things. He’ll only start with the begging and pleading routine and I really don’t want to see him or hear his whiny voice.”
“Come whenever you’re ready, honey,” Leah responded.
“Great. I’ll be there just as soon as I’ve chucked some things in my bag.”

Moon Blood: The First Blood Son, Book 2 by Carol McKibben
Hybrid-wolf “Moon” and her human vampire master, Kane, fight for their lives against a stalking shifter network out to destroy them. Each battle may be their last as vampires and werewolves edge ever closer to war.
While Kane and Moon work to unravel the looming threat, more and more questions surface. But one thing is for sure; the real motives behind the werewolves’ plot against them include destroying the vampire race.
Only an act of bravery and trust will stop the werewolf species from destroying what Kane and Moon love the most. Vampire teeth flash and wolf claws clash as supernatural beings fight for life, love, and family.
Levity and humor go hand in hand in MB2 (Moon Blood 2). It's the kind of story that gets under your skin and has you believing dogs can talk, vampires can have souls (but not in a sparkly kind of way) and unconditional love is alive and well in the world.
A new character, Zandra, is introduced. She's bold, brave and little bit arrogant─a perfect match for Kane. I can see them having many more adventures in more books of the series.
Moon, our canine narrator, has cat like responses towards the pairing such as "hacking up a fur ball". But I think Moon will get her just desserts when it comes time for her to find a mate.
Gory is prevalent for those who like that kind of story. But something interesting happenes during the battles in this installment as opposed to the Snow Blood series.
Or read the SNOW BLOOD series which I highly recommend.
scroll down to the next section.
For instance, in MB2 the fighting is very different from the SB (Snow Blood) series. Since Kane took over the coven the abilities of all the vampires lean towards Kane's abilities. I noticed more shape-shifting in this one. More dragons. More bats. Just as much blood and slightly different tactics because Kane is much different from Brogio. Kane is the thinker.
but definitely this kind of thinker...
In the end, Moon Blood 2 leaves us with no cliff hangers but has room for more stories. I can't wait!

Kane took his glass of wine from the waitress and savored its aroma, twirling it in his hand.
I see her. Kane’s voice slid through my mind.
Two things struck me about the woman. She resembled Selene with black hair and golden-brown eyes. Her voluptuous body exuded sex. Her sensual mouth curved into a smile when her eyes met Kane’s.
Her large-necked sweater slid off one olive-skinned shoulder. A short black leather mini skirt and knee-high black suede boots completed her sultry appearance.
Kane, impeccably attired in a dark-blue Boglioli jacket, blue turtleneck, and Brunello Cucinelli jeans, dusted off his Bruno Magli boots. He picked up his expensive glass of wine and sauntered over to the woman’s table.
I padded over and around to the gate behind her table and growled at her. Sniffing the air, I took in her aroma. She smelled of forest.
Kane sat opposite her, and she glanced over her shoulder at me.
“Your companion does not trust my motives.” She turned and eyed my master.
“What are your motives?” He leaned his handsome face toward hers and gave her a smoldering, unmistakable look.
“Nothing nefarious. You are just the most attractive person here tonight. Can’t a girl dream?” She sipped her wine.
“You can do more than dream.” Kane reached across the table and took her hand. “I am Kane de Medici. What is your name?”
“I know who you are, Kane. Everyone knows the most eligible bachelor in Tuscany.”
“Well, now that we both know my name, perhaps you have one as well?” He smiled, and his dark-brown eyes squinted at the corners slightly.
“Have you lived here for very long, Zandra, or just passing through?” Kane let go of her hand.
“All my life. Tuscan born.”
“How have we never met?” Kane sipped his wine, noticed her glass was empty, and called to the waitress. “Another glass of what I’m having, please.”
“You are gone often. A world traveler, no?”
The waitress brought another glass and set it down in front of Zandra.
She took it and sipped it. “This is one of yours, no?”
“You appear to know more about me than I do about you. Why don’t we rectify that?”
I could hold my silence no longer. Be careful. She isn’t human.
Yes, I know that she isn’t what she pretends to be. If she was sent to trap me in some way, I need to let it play out.
Zandra sniffed the wine, tasted it, and then drained the glass.
“Good wine should be savored, not gulped.” Kane frowned at her.
She reached into her black purse, pulled out a small card, and slid it across the table at him. “I’m late for an appointment. Call me.” She rose from her chair slowly, letting Kane’s eyes feast on every curve. “I’m sure you’ll like me once you get to know me.” She strode away, and Kane’s eyes never left her as she disappeared.
My sharp bark jarred him back to reality.
She’s a shifter, but different than the others. I stood and paced around.
Kane finished his wine and responded. It will be fun discovering just exactly what she is.
