Everything happens for a reason... doesn't it? Ren never put stock in sappy clichés... at least, not until the day she died. She's alive - again - but in hiding, adopted by the strangest of foster families: The Delaneys. Now, part of a sisterhood drawn together by the same unknown force that spared her life, she will begin a journey she could never have imagined: leaving her everyday world for one much more bizarre. It will be harder than she imagines, but alongside her newfound sisters, Ren will soon discover that everything does happen for a reason, but sometimes, those reasons are better left unknown.

About the Author

Andy Lockwood owes his continued fascination with the macabre to a lifetime immersed in the horror genre. His tutelage began with the stories of Ray Bradbury, Stephen King and other masters; quickly becoming part of a regular routine as he bonded with his father over monster double-features every Saturday. He grew up with role models like Vincent Price, Alice Cooper, The Addams' and The Munsters. It's not that he intended to turn out this way; he just didn't know any better.
As the years added up, he discovered an avalanche of influences that pushed his own imagination forward, urging a necessity to put pen to paper himself. While future career choices would shift and methods of creative expression would fluctuate, one thing remained certain: his love of the printed word was resolute.
While pursuing studies in filmmaking, he rekindled his love of writing. The limitations of scripted action brought him back to short story writing and the discovery of National Novel Writing Month. Eventually, his efforts would award him his first novel, Empty Hallways.
Andy has a decorated life of Bucket List accomplishments, none of which he ever intended to do for the glory. They have all fallen in line as part of the adventure his life decided to be. Eventually, he intends to capture the best of these stories in a lengthy memoir - or at least on his blog, Happier Thoughts (
Empty Hallways is currently available in paperback and eBook formats, though the rumors of a rare and elusive hardcover still persist. He has been included in two anthologies, and plans to release another horror novel, Threshold, and an unnamed serial in 2016.
Andy lives in mid-Michigan with 3 cats, a runaway imagination and a misguided idea of what it means to be an adult.
