A SECRET PLACE

A secret room that has been forgotten for many years. A man that seems to exist in a place beyond time. A cracked picture frame with a secret spell of its own. A birthday that is never quite completed. A seeming sanctuary that casts an evil glow. Readers of this chilling story will never look at books, or a rose, the same way again!

 

NEVER

He was a weird little kid that seemed to have a connection to another world that he did not want. She was a bubbly, happy kid that knew how to live life, and managed to keep him in it with her. They were soulmates from the beginning, and never separated as they grew older. But as time went on, his episodes became more frequent. She was his only link to this life. She was the reason he was even here at all. Then one day, he goes to the store without her, and as the automatic doors close behind him, everything changes. Told from both of their points of view, "Never" will lull you into the mist of their lives, and the mystery behind their connection.

 

THE RADIO LOVE LINE

They all live their separate lives – the drug addicted prostitute, the Hollywood producer, the high powered female executive, the widowed mother, the radio DJ, the high school boy. They all feel their lives are spinning out of control. Just like everyone else in the world, they are just looking for a little love. A little peace. Through it all, the stories from the radio love line tie them together. But are these apparent strangers tied together in another way too?
