New Book Idea
I have an idea for a new story that I wanted to run across some friends and family before writing after I finish Hunt. The tentative title is Darkness and it surrounds a love-starved girl who is being stalked by a guy at her school. Yes, it's kind of a scary, horror-type story. She sees him watching her at school, turning up at "just the right time" to help her, but then things get really creepy when she finds out he's been staring at her at night as she sleeps, letting himself in through her window and then leaving before she wakes. While the guy is clearly a psycho, it gets weirder when the girl starts to develop feelings for him, even becoming depressed and delusional when he's not around, contemplating various ways to put her life on the line, and finding solace in her ex-lover's worst enemy. I haven't decided yet how to end the story, but I'm thinking it might involve a baby strong enough to claw its way out of her uterus, ultimately killing her. Sound fun? Well, believe me, it won't be.
