In the world of the Talent Chronicles, kids born with supernatural powers are taken from their families and forced into government research facilities called State Schools. At one such school, a dangerous experiment has killed two young inmates and threatens others. Ethan, a shape-shifter, is reluctantly recruited by his best friend Karen, a telepath, and Elle, the unique Talent he has a crush on, to thwart the faculty's plans. If they’re caught they face Detention, and Detention at a State School has a whole different meaning.
"Impulse Control" is a short story of approximately 12,000 words and contains some strong language. Concerned parents are encouraged to read for suitability before downloading this title for tween/younger teen readers.

About the Author
I’ve got a thing for love stories and superheroes. I'm working on something I call the Talent Chronicles. This series began with my desire for more superheroes! More romance! More Superhero!Romance.
Talents are people born with supernatural abilities, trying to find their way in a world that fears and wants to control them. I like to explore how the things that make us different from each other sometimes make life difficult, and sometimes are the making of us. These stories are for people who love Buffy, wanted more romance in Heroes, and thought Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor should have worked things out.
The first Talent Chronicles novel, Hush Money, is currently available with a sequel, Heroes 'Til Curfew, coming in 2011.
A Talent Chronicles short story, Impulse Control, appears in the Kiss Me, Kill Me Anthology with several other awesome indies. That's available here on Smashwords and proceeds go to charity. The story is also available singly as a free download.
