A madman bent on ridding the world of "defects" has set his sights on Gillian. As he begins his horrific game of cat and mouse, each act of terror meant to break Gillian down, he must struggle with his own inner demons to hold himself together. Destroying Gillian may be the only way he can gain salvation . . . or at least lie to himself that he isn't falling apart and becoming a defect himself.

I am a voracious reader - so much so that I usually have more than one book going at any given time. Plus, I have the tendency to go back and re-read books that I enjoyed so much the first time. Honestly, can any true bibliophile not, at least on occasion, feel that pull to re-visit an old friend, even if it means popping back into the same part of their life they previously explored? Yes, I have also spent inordinate amounts of time pondering the possible outcomes or future dealings that my favorite characters might have continued past the pages where I first met them. With that in mind, how could I have not become a writer? In fact, I have been writing for as long as I can remember - poems, uplifting notes, a play or two, newspaper articles, short stories, novellas, and now novels. Some things have been well received and others not so much (just ask my children how they feel about the various "uplifting notes" I leave around the house for them).
With regard to actual biographical information, well, I am one of 2.3 kids who grew up on a cul-de-sac in a house without a picket fence, but plenty of animals. I moved all over the country and beyond after graduating high school, meeting all manner of people in all sorts of places. I enjoy music, scrapbooking, and making the occasional comfort food, along with my constant reading. I tend to the Twilight Zone way of thinking and the "What's your fear? Let me write about that" kind of style. Although I like to explore the dark depths of the human psyche, I am generally a happy and pleasant sort of gal.
