I've been writing and creating for as long as I can remember.  As an adult, I earned two Associate degrees, worked as a Web Publisher and launched a website called 1613 Enterprises--among other things.  As a child, I won many awards--such as 1st place in high school, 2nd place in a regional art show and Editor's Choice in college.  In life, I've been a kind of cowboy--trying this, that or the other.  Although it's led me down some dark paths, I'm honored to have experienced the things I had.  They've helped me realize what I really want.  As a writer, I try and channel the same attributes into my characters--which are often flawed but courageous people who learn from their mistakes and ultimately become stronger, better individuals.

    This Story was Inspired by

    Dedicated to 

    Derek B. 


    And she said, ‘To taste death and yet give life, wow, what a trick.’ 

    - Virginia Graham, 1969 



    Good evening and thank you for joining us on the 10 o’ clock news.  I’m Stacy Larkin.  Another senseless crime rocked our fair city today.  One man’s account of a wild spree killer robbed the lives of two police officers, a father and a young man.  Sources tell us that the killings could be connected to the death of a local 13-year-old girl whose body was found only a few short days ago.  News Correspondent Becky Raslin reports the story. 

    At approximately 2:10 AM, Wessex police found two of their colleagues, Timothy O’Rourke and Annabelle Soto, dead in the parking lot of Wessex Community College.  The officers were investigating the alleged murders of two men along Paul DeCarlo Trail. 

    He came running into the station.  Frantic.  Bl...beaten.  Reporting a murder.  At the time, it didn’t seem like the kind of crime that required more than just a couple officers. 

    The young man reporting the incident told Lindeke that he and one of the victims were exploring the area when a crazed cannibalistic madman attacked them, ultimately leaving four dead bodies in his wake.  He also claimed to have narrowly escaped with his own life. 

    The bodies were obscenely dismembered.  Just ripped apart.  We’re still trying to pick up all the pieces.  We haven’t seen anything this bad since the little girl in Clayton. 

    That girl was 13-year-old Bryce Garland whose parents found savagely mutilated in a field no more than ten yards from the family’s house.  She was pronounced dead by hospital staff on Friday, April 11th.  Here’s a clip from the interview we conducted with the Garlands earlier today. 

    Bryce was a wonderful child.  Beautiful.  Athletic. 


    Yes, very smart.  Fabulous student.  Everybody loved her. 

    "I remember this bake sale her and her friends organized.  They wanted to attend
