My tall dark hero died.
Some say it was his gift that took him away; others say The Institution got to him. But either way, my destiny didn’t die with him.
I’m Amanda. My gift is to read the memories of the living and communicate with the dead. To The Institution, I’m a clairaudient. That makes me high on their list of gifteds who need to be normalized.
The Institution is hunting down every gifted person they can find to… fix them. Its mission ripped families apart and had claimed one of the most powerful gifteds I’d ever known, the matriarch of my family. Now there was just me; a pregnant girl, whose closest remaining family was the ragtag group of gifteds formerly taught by her Grandmother.
“Stay under The Institution’s radar,” was the first rule we all learned. And now I had a target on my back.
But the bounty on my head is much deeper than that. I’m being hunted by The Institution under the orders one of its founders, my mother.
And I’m not sure if it matters if I’m dead or alive.
About the Author
I was born a southern girl, raised in Michigan and now call the south home again. Here in the peaceful rural Alabama, I am a supermom & army wife, V.P. of finance for my home, a puppy wrangler and full time supervisor in the Healthcare industry. And somewhere in all of that I find a few minutes to myself to write, which is something that I absolutely love to do. I have even gone as far as piecing together stories and inspirational writings from text messages and social media posts (don't judge me! LOL). Despite wearing several hats I am more focused than ever on my passion for writing. Fun Facts about me: *I absolutely love the fact that my office is a fortress that the kids and puppy cannot penetrate *I often find stories and poems in old emails, on napkins in my desk drawers and as notes on my smartphone that I have forgotten about. *I sometimes sneak the puppy in my office because she is less distracting than the children *If I were a muppet I would be Ms. Piggy cause she's a classy dame *My favorite things to do are writing, listening to music and eating. *I started writing poetry when I was 13 years old *My oldest daughter inherited my love for writing and the youngest my love for music *Every time I watch Shag: The Movie it's like the first time *My family does the best car concerts in the south (even though the hubby may disagree) I completed my first novel Dark Princess in January 2009 and it is finally be available to the public!
