To the outside world, psychology student Evelyn Jackson has a perfect life, but her secrets threaten to rip away everything she loves. Desperate to find a solution, she returns home, only to find an even more devastating secret: her long lost friend from childhood, Caroline, has slipped from reality and has been labeled the town crazy.
Eager to help Caroline and to avoid dealing with her own crisis, Evelyn is drawn into the dark world of abuse and neglect Caroline has endured all her life. Evelyn braves the perils of Caroline’s schizophrenia and discovers the ugly, dangerous side of real-life mental illness her studies haven’t prepared her for. Shaken but determined, Evelyn attempts to draw Caroline from the horrors of her own mind, eventually revealing the pain and shame that has held her in the clutches of depression for months.
Dragged along an emotional rollercoaster, Evelyn is forced to find strength she never knew she had, but if she can’t save her friend from her pain, she may lose Caroline to suicide and herself to a lifetime of regret.
Remarkable depth of Character development.
Full in. Phone on silent in. I stopped nibbling and had to know the resolution for each character.

If there's one word to describe this collection of short stories that is "unquiet". It's disturbing, yet addictive, dystopian, yet realistic. Reading these stories is like entering The Unholy, if The Unholy was a place, a delectable world of misfortune and courage.
Did you ever have your name on the board for misbehaving in class? If you only got in trouble with the teacher, you should count yourself lucky. Ever find something old in the water? Did it divide your whole town in ways you couldn’t imagine? What is beauty, and how do you stay forever young? The answer might not be what you want, especially if Joe passes by your house. Where does art come from? An old man’s back yard? Who’s to say? Have you ever been in the bottom of a grave? The view gives you quite the perspective on life. What happens to a person when they get struck by lightning? More than you think, I’m sure. Do you know your spouse? I mean really know them. Are you sure? We all have our secrets. Do you remember being a kid and drawing a doodle on your skin, maybe an innocent stickman figure? Yeah, don’t do that. It could be more dangerous than you think.

poems from the chair
How would you want to be remembered? If you knew the hour of your death, what would you want to leave behind?
This collection of poems takes you on a journey through the last days of a man awaiting execution. Through gritty, hard-hitting verse you will run the gamut of emotional conflict erupting from a man with more regrets than days left to live.
The poems are beautifully written, deep and insightful. The author masters the art of story-telling through verse. I highly recommend this collection-
I think this book of poetry is amazing. It has a way of digging deep into the soul. The wording and structure is excellent. Beautifully written.
