See: Whispers of the Damned: Ghostly Games

I never had a problem with ghosts, with anything paranormal. It's part of the teen angst that frames my life. Don't get me wrong--I'm not hung up on some romantic gothic cliche. I'm not even trying to say I have supernatural powers. I just see what you can't. Hear what you can't.

My truth? It's easier to believe in the dead, trapped by demons and freed by angels, than the fantasy of ordinary life circling in loops of routine as the one and only reality.

There's a war of survival lurking in the unseen. Some of it's internal, some isn't.

When I understood darkness was feeding on those trapped, I had a moral hitch. Was it survival of the fittest, or the beginning of the end?

Standing up for the wretched cost me everything.

My story begins now.

La reaccion instinctiva de Cael le dice que algo no va bien con la busqueda y que su investigacion no ha revelado todo. ?Encontrara a su papa y a Jake antes que el fantasma haga dano a su hermano como a los demas ninos?

Excerpt: Jake's gaze ticked to Cael's hand. "Don't be a hero. Just drop when I say drop."

Cael nodded imperceptibly. Hot stinky breath washed across the back of his neck, ruffling the ends of his hair. Low otherworldly growls vibrated across his senses. The urge to run beat like a warning cadence through his chest, but Cael remained still, trusting his brother.

"Drop! Now!"

Praise from Quirky Girls Read: One night, Cael drops a bombshell on Jake right before they to go on a mission with their father. Jake is ready for the distraction of what is supposed to be an easy sweep and destroy. However, the boys are in for much more than they initially bargained for. Not only are their lives in danger, but those of the unsuspecting humans who live around them. ~~A quick and fun read with plenty of tense, suspenseful moments.

We are not all created equal.

Seventeen years ago, Cody and her boyfriend James were two of the lucky babies from 1% of the population randomly selected to receive genetic engineering.

Known as the "Ones," this generation of genetically enhanced teenagers is excelling. Cody, James, and their fellow Ones are healthy, beautiful, talented...and to some, that's not fair. Mounting fear and jealousy of the Ones' success leads to the creation of the Equality Movement, which quickly gains enough traction to outlaw future genetic engineering--and demote the Ones to second-class citizens.

Cody anticipated the repercussions even before the brick smashed through her window. It bears a clear message: the darkest impulses of society have been unleashed, and the Ones are the targets. As their school, the government, and even family and friends turn against them, Cody begins to believe they have no other choice but to protect their own. She draws closer to a group of radical Ones led by the passionate and fevered Kai, and James begins to question just how far she is willing to go to fight for her rights...

Themes of justice, discrimination and terrorism mix with actual science to create a frightening version of our near future in this pulse-pounding thriller.

Whirl of the Wheel

The Girl called “Cyclops”

The management of the Crown Motor Company was being killed one by one. The murderer was a man with no weapons, who killed his target and the guards with superhuman powers. Matthew, a manager who was sure he would be next, asked the 'Order' to guard him. It was the girl who came - Saki - wearing a gantai. The Order called her 'the Cyclops'. She agreed to protect him, and promised to confront the murderer. (A gantai is a white eye patch commonly used in Japan, and is easily moved to one side.)
