About the Author

Carol Oates has never been one to remain still for long. After her parents’ mad dash to the hospital through the empty city streets of Dublin, Ireland, Carol made her debut into the world in the early hours of Christmas morning. Since then her pace has not slowed down in the least.

Carol was introduced to the world of supernatural books when, as a child, her family moved to a coastal suburb of Dublin known as Clontarf, famous as the birthplace of Bram Stoker, the prolific author responsible for breathing life into the legendary story Dracula. This stirred in Carol an early passion for reading about all things supernatural. Combine that passion with a deep interest in the history and folklore of Ireland, as well as an active and vivid imagination, and Carol Oates the author was born. Carol’s love of writing about anything not entirely “human” emerged, and the premise for her debut novel, Shades of Atlantis, was born.

This was actually a pretty good read. It's a short story, sure, but still very well written. I actually wanted to read more of it, though. We find ourselves caught in the lives of Cathy and her twin, Lottie. Both identical, but quite different in temperaments. Cathy is popular and out-going. Lottie is quiet and very bookish. Yet despite their differences they get along quite well. Or they did, anyway. Lottie's taken to ignoring Cathy, something she's not comfortable with. Her boyfriend has decided that he's interested in someone else and Cathy isn't sure how she feels about that. There's also the fact that Delia, the head cheerleader and very popular girl at school, has taken her sister under her wing. In comes the beautiful, and very shy, Jonas Darby. He instantly grabs Cathy's attention. She's delighted that he's not ignoring her. More so, she's happy because he's actually giving her the time of day. When things start to go awry with her sister, Cathy decides that she needs help. She tries to enlists Jonas' help, yet he's reluctant to help her. As her sister starts changing, Cathy knows that her time is running out and she starts pulling out all the stops in making Jonas give her the hand she needs in order to make everything right again.

Awesomely written. I do not want to give away the reason why it is titled Unfinished, and in the beginning Cathy seems like just another normal teen at high school ... until you realize she isn't. This is a perfect short story. It had suspense, a little bit of love (always nice) and then of course the twist. When the twist in the story came I was like: "What? Didn't see that coming."

I'm very tired of these so called books that are nothing but short stories. Even though it was a Very good short story does not change what it is.
