Is Bristol Blackburn about to meet the love of her life...or her killer?
After the death of her parents, Bristol Blackburn's life is thrown into chaos and she's forced to move to Spirit, a small town where shadows are stirring. As she learns to navigate her new school and figures out how to keep her psychic abilities secret from her family, Bristol comes face to face with the boy who makes a regular appearance in her dreams: the gorgeous, possibly deadly, Payne McKnight. Soon she’ll find out if Payne will be the love of her life, or the end of it — and she has no idea which possibility scares her more.
And that's not even the worst of it. Strange shadows are haunting her dreams, and they're up to something that could put Bristol and the lives of everyone she loves in jeopardy.
- Stephen King - One of my earliest influences. Reading his books like It, Pet Cemetery, Misery and of course The Stand made me know I wanted to be an author. I haven’t read King is years, but I really enjoyed the summer show Under the Dome and I even try and catch the SyFy show Haven.
- Dean Koontz - Loved Intensity. Adored the much underrated Life Expectancy and his Odd Thomas series. Dean has a vivid imagination and creates characters with unique voices. His wit and style come through in each and everything he writes.
- Michael Crichton - Sure, I started reading him because of the mega movie Jurassic Park, but many of his works were wonderful. And they all made me feel smart. Special love for Sphere. And yes, book was way better than the movie.
- Nora Roberts - Yes, Nora Roberts. Some of her books are just absolutely magnificent. The Quinn Brother’s Trilogy is a favorite as is her Three Sisters Trilogy. There are too many to mention. And they haven’t really done a movie that worthy of her work. She brings an emotional edge to her work that I identify with.
- JD Robb - Okay, yes I know that JD Robb is really Nora Robert’s alter ego, but since she’s got something like 20 books under that name alone, I decided she deserved her own spot. I live for the day they bring Eve Dallas to life on the big screen. Or even better, make a series out of it!
- Janet Evanovich - I simply love the Stephanie Plumb novels. And love the fun inherent in them.
- Peter David - I discovered him while reading Star Trek Novels. He’s got a wonderful style and a great sense of humor.
- Lois Duncan - I was googling young adult novels from the 80’s trying to remember books that may have influenced me when I saw the cover for a book called Summer of Fear. It was one of the first novels that I can remember picking up and loving. It led the way for me to fall in love with reading. I haven’t read anything else from her, but I can still remember this book and how I kept looking for something that would enthrall me just as well.
- Willo Davis Roberts - Like Lois Duncun, I didn’t remember the author as much as I did the book. It came out in 1988. I’m not sure when it came out, but I was still in grammar school. And since I can still remember parts of the story 30 somewhat years later, I decided it should be here.
- JK Rowling - The Harry Potter books are absolute favorites of mine. I’ve read each one at least 6 or 7 times. JK Rowling’s works re-inspired me to once again pursue my dream of becoming an author. Not to mention they’re just plain old fantastic books!
Vincent has been writing fiction, poetry and song lyrics for as long as he can remember, most of which involve magical misfits, paranormal prodigies and even on occasion superheroes and their sidekicks.
