GENRE: Contemporary Suspense Thriller





High school is torture for Steven Walthurst, and home isn’t a whole lot better. The only place that offers respite is an abandoned tree house at the edge of town. But something lurks in the nearby woods, and the long line of elm trees has a clear message for Steven: keep out.

Then one day, Steven finds a little girl lying unconscious, perilously close to the woods. As the two get to know one another, Steven experiences real friendship for the first time—and gets closer than ever to knowing the darkness that skulks between the trees.

He dedicates himself to keeping his new friend safe, but the tranquility of their fragile hidden world doesn’t last long. When an act of cruelty pushes Steven to his limits, his secrets—and those of the dark woods—come close to unraveling, threatening to destroy the one thing making his teenage life bearable. Can Steven save everything he’s built from crumbling under the pressure?








“Hi,” he said. Her eyes drifted to the bottle at his feet. Noticing the unspoken request he asked, “Would you like some water?” He reached for the plastic water bottle and handed it to her. The girl took it without a word and struggled with the yellow lid. “No, you’re not supposed to twist it.” He took it back from her and flicked the lid open. “See?” He handed it back, and she drank until there was little more than an ounce left. As she wiped her mouth with the back of her hand, her eyes drifted once again to his feet. The sandwich container. “You can eat this,” he said, and she took the container with both hands like it was a precious gift. “What’s your name?”


The girl took a huge bite off a sandwich and munched, ignoring his question. There were only three left in the container, and he had hoped to have at least one more before going to bed that night. But seeing the way her bones made ripples on her skin, he decided she could have all of them if she wanted. If he went back late enough, his momma would be gone, and he could have some of the canned fruits she had brought home some time ago.


“My name is Steven,” he said. “Can you say it? Steven.” He placed a hand on his chest and repeated slowly, “Steee-ven.” The girl seemed oblivious to his words, peeking through the layers of the second sandwich. She finished it in two bites and reached into the container for the last one. “Do you have a name?” The girl went on chewing, her focus set on the sandwich. “Are you deaf?” he asked, raising his voice a little, pointing at his ear.


She lowered the half-eaten sandwich, cocked her head, and belched. It was deep and guttural. Steven, finding it funny, chuckled. The girl stopped chewing and stared at him. Her lips sagged at the corners and he felt guilty.


“Sorry,” he said, shrugging. The girl’s lips curled up, and a second later, she let out a soft giggle. Steven smiled, and his forehead lost its wrinkles. “Where did you come from?”


One more bite and the last sandwich was gone. She wiped her fingers on her t-shirt and tipped the water bottle with two hands, finishing the last drop Steven had brought. “Did you come from there?” He pointed at the woods. She glanced in the direction of his finger for a brief moment before handing the container and bottle back to Steven.

    Do you write every day? Do you have a word goal for each day you write?

      If I’m not editing a manuscript, then yes, I write everyday. On a good day I can put down 6,000 words. But I try to keep it at a minimum of 3,000 words
