Eighteen-year old Parker Austin, big brother and high school quarterback, dreams of glory on the football field. But a tragic shooting shatters Parker world. In a chilling span of sixty seconds, a mass tragedy wreaks havoc upon his life, family, and community. Although hailed a hero, Parker is horror-struck to discover that an incident from his past was the motive for the killings and he was the intended target. When someone threatens to get the one that got away, Parker finds himself hunted.

Help comes from an unexpected source--an angel named Marie. A spunky, impulsive guardian, Marie is dedicated to saving Parker at all costs, but will her love be enough to save him when the darkness comes for him? When Marie is confronted by a sinister nemesis who covets Parker's soul, a desperate struggle is waged over Parker's fate. With time running out, she must face her growing, but secret, affections for Parker that she can no longer ignore, affections that will force her to make the ultimate decision--sacrifice herself and all that she believes, or lose him to the darkness forever.

About the Author

Scott Abel works in state government and is the author of several short stories and the young adult paranormal romance novel, Sunrise.

A native Texan, Abel was raised a PK (preacher's kid) and grew up listening to his father, a masterful storyteller, every Sunday. Whether it was sermons from the pulpit or episodes of The Twilight Zone, powerful stories that tug at the emotions and stretch the mind captivated him.

As he began his own journey through life as a football coach and college administrator, he remained a sucker for a good story—plus chocolate and peanut butter. Now, as a husband and father, he’s discovered he’s got a few stories of his own to tell.

As an author, Abel is firmly entrenched in the shadowlands where the line between light and dark isn’t always so distinguishable. He invites you to step through the thin, misty veil separating the known from the unknown and venture with him into the realm of Sunrise where the supernatural is not only possible…but natural.

In addition to his writing endeavors and work in state government, Abel is also a public speaker. He often speaks to organizations, non-profits, and churches on leadership, communication, teamwork, and motivational messages.

Abel has a bachelor’s degree and a law degree from Texas Wesleyan University, but is a rabid, life-long fan of the TCU Horned Frogs. He lives in the suburbs of Austin with his wife and two precocious daughters - who enthusiastically assist him in his search for the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter.
