Book Synopsis
Michelle Black is plagued by terrifying nightmares of Hell and the disturbing ability to see the sins of men. Deceived by an unknown voice that threatens her and begs her to "join him," she suddenly finds herself trapped in the place of her nightmares, Hell.

Michelle is told that she must now serve the Angel of Darkness, Lucifer, in more ways than one. Though he professes his love for her, she isn't sure that he can be trusted. Her life becomes more complicated when Lucifer's calculating second-in-command, Hades, marks her as an enemy. Michelle must find the will to fight against unseen enemies and those who fear that she will learn the truth about her true identity and her dark destiny.

New Jersey Mom Fulfills Her Dream of Becoming an Author

Tabitha Barret April 2015


Randolph, NJ - A local New Jersey mom had fulfilled her dream of becoming an author by releasing her first book, “The Third Throne: Angel of Darkness”, under the pen name, Tabitha Barret.  Between working a full time job, driving her kids to tae kwon do practice, and taking care of her husband and three dogs, she somehow managed to find time to not only write one book, but write the framework for a twelve book series.


Barret’s “Third Throne” series is a paranormal romance that follows a young woman as she learns of her dark destiny to end the world.  While the book may sound like a religious tome, it focuses more on the concepts of morality and loyalty while it creates its own unique world that pulls from all aspects of the paranormal.  It is intended for mature audiences due to the romantic nature of the books, and the struggles associated with fulfilling a destiny most would consider evil.  The series itself focuses on the main character, Anjali, as she hunts down her wayward Angels of Temptation, who were created to help her achieve her mission, but have lost their way, and become affected by the very temptations they hold within them.


Barret has been writing since she was young, but only began her mission of creating the series three years ago.  During a difficult time with her kindergartener, she made the tough decision to take time off from work to devote more time to her children.  She spent her free moments creating the structure of her story, though the main idea had come to her decades before.  Once her children started school in the Fall, she found the extra hours she needed to write the beginnings of the series.


Once Barret went back to work, she was relegated to writing in her car on her laptop during tae kwon do practice, or when the children were asleep.  It was difficult for her to find time to juggle her life and her writing, but she finished two books and part of the third before she was ready to tell the world what she had been working on.  She was concerned that people would look down on her for writing paranormal romance, but was relieved when her family and friends supported her efforts.


Now Barret tries to educate other young authors on how to accomplish their goals by writing a weekly blog called, “Holy Crap, I Wrote a Book, Now What?”  She details her struggles and accomplishments in the hopes of inspiring and educating other aspiring authors.  She also offers advice for new authors on editing, publishing, and promoting their work.


Barret plans to release her next book in the series, “The Third Throne: Angel of Death”, by Summer 2015 and looks forward to continuing to write her upcoming books.
