Into the Dark

Are you afraid of the dark? Does the unknown haunt you around every corner? Is there something just out of sight hiding in the periphery? Is it even real?

A girl’s journey as she grows up in a world filled with death and darkness at every turn. All while trying to navigate her existence at the edge of the veil between life and death. She learns that we can’t escape our lives, but we can discover all the ways to find one for ourselves among the ghosts that haunt us all. She’s searching for a way through the abuse and fear as those who seek her out hope to find release from regret and responsibilities they still carry, even after death.

It’s one girl’s story of gifts, ghosts, and the unknown.

Into the Dark offers a poignant glimpse into a troubled young life, and yet it is not the story of someone who wallows in their misfortune. Instead, it is a story of someone who seeks to find joy in what life has to offer, albeit with a little help from her ghosts.

Catherine McCarthy – Immortelle

A memoir-like mosaic of a young girl’s journey with the supernatural. Sometimes haunting, often lyrical, Into the Dark is a subtle horror story entangled with heart-wrenching family dynamics.

LP Hernandez, author of Stargazers

Solitary

The Short Story Collection compiled of Shhh, Invisible, Lucky, and Caged

Read them all in one place and it’s available in paperback as well.

Shhh…

Every word means something, and every story can change a person, but what if those words did more harm than good? What if in the middle of it all, you had to decide if you had it in you to destroy someone else? Measure your words carefully and kill them with kindness.  

Invisible

Do you remember the moment you disappeared? What would you do if you found yourself living in the world unseen by everyone around you? How would life look to you? Would you find it worth more than you thought before or less? So many questions and a story full of one person’s answers.  A life fading into oblivion and living in the day to day, invisible.  

Lucky

What if you spent your entire life as the unluckiest person everyone knew?
How would your world change if suddenly that was no longer the case? Could you figure out how to function in your life where luck found you and you could share it? I imagine you could, but what is luck and who is it really feeding?
A short story where lives change, and luck is the only factor at play or at least the only one playing. 

Caged

Held hostage by someone or something? Could it all be in your own mind? A prisoner of thoughts and time. Who holds the key or is the door already open?

 Curiosity killed the cat, and sometimes we all get a little too curious.

What if your curiosity became an itch you couldn’t scratch? 

Wait and see…
