CAN A BAD GIRL BE A GOOD DETECTIVE?Brilliant, determined and damaged -- that's Ava Brennen, a young pretty UK countryside girl who comes from both wealth and tragedy. In "Ava Gets Her Man," she learns what it means to fight the past and yet press on toward the future all the while trying to navigate a complicated personal and romantic life. Ava needs to unravel a dark, horrific mystery, that if not solved, will most certainly kill her.

Ava says, "I'm not proud of what I'm about to share with you, but I was young, okay? Like, way too young for Dirk, our trusted family friend. But, trusting him was only the beginning. To be honest, I had been hopelessly crushing on him pretty much forever. One summer, on the Spanish island of Mallorca, we became closer. Much closer. And today, as I look back on it, what happened in the water that day was actually criminal. But was he the criminal responsible for my parent's deaths?"

Ava is the heroine of the Ava Brennen Mystery Series, a young UK countryside girl who comes from both wealth and tragedy. In the first installment, Ava Gets Her Man, she learns what it means to fight the past and yet press on toward the future all the while trying to navigate a complicated personal and romantic life.

Dystopia

Corporal Dia Zephyr assumed it was just another drill, no more than a Navy tradition, a rite of passage for the recruits. She expected a spacewalk, maybe a shooting game inside an asteroid field, skimming along the Collective's border before turning back to the Empire's space.After all, this was what they knew, what everyone expected.But that's not what happened.

Mark sidestepped another zombie and pulled the trigger downing another zombie before continuing to run. Then out of the corner of his eye, Mark thought he saw a blind open slightly in the window of a grey house on his right. His head jerked to the house as he saw the blind close a second later. Mark took a chance and ran with Rachel up to the front door of the grey house.

Mark pounded on the door and shouted, “Please let us in!”

No reply came and Rachel tugged on his arm, they turned to face their threat. More than sixty zombies where coming towards them and with sadness in his heart, Mark had to accept that this is where he died. Smacking the door one last time Mark’s voice trembling said “Please. At least let her in.”

Shocked Rachel turned to meet Mark’s sad gaze “No Mark I’m not leaving you.”

“Rachel there’s nowhere for us to go and the thought of at least you living makes me happy” Mark replied. Lifting his gun, he shot the closest zombie, not 10 feet away. Pulling the trigger, again and again, Mark took down zombie after zombie. Finally, the gun clicked multiple times confirming to Mark and Rachel it was empty. Zombies continued to close in on them with more on their way. Mark knew he didn’t have enough bullets for all of them.

“I’m sorry Rachel I wasn’t able to protect you,” Mark said as his head and heart sank low.

The Journal of M.A.N Volume 1 follows Mark and Rachel as they try to stay alive in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Along the way, relations will grow and some will break. The only thing that's for sure with zombies is that death will follow; for humans, the undead, or both!!!

***4-7-18 I am going on a bit of a break to make my story stronger. This introduction and the chapters that follow will not be the same. There will be slight differences. Please await my return. The only reason I'm not simply removing the story completely is so that people can still enjoy what I already have.

Ruan Linshad's life was never normal. She, with all the might she could muster up, tried to make the best of it, but alas, nothing truly made sense. How often do parents disappear without a trace? How often do you forget half of your childhood, only to remember things of little to no importance? There's even that name of which she couldn't speak of. Nothing. Made. Sense.

As if things couldn't get any stranger, Canus Tranx strolled in out of nowhere, bringing a load of disarray along with him. At least, that's what it seems like. His arrival was chaotic enough without the royal order being sent out a week later. They were searching for the "Traitor of the Crown". None of this can be a coincidence. Just what has he done to upset the royals and what will Ruan get herself into trying to find out? - A note from the author: This is my first novel so please go easy on me. I'd greatly appreciate feedback. Don't forget to like and comment so I'll know that I'm doing something right and so that I can interact with my readers. Thank you for taking a look at my story.

Hey guys, This is a story I partially wrote as a kid when I was borderline illiterate. I always had the ideas and creativity to write, but I didn't have the skills. My friends have helped me come along way but I still have a lot to learn. I love feedback even if it points out weaknesses.

also just a note, the names of the characters may seem ridiculous, but let me explain. This story is inspired by many real life events however unrealistic it may seem. the setting and what not are totally false, but many of the characters are real people and a lot of the conversations, personal struggles, and fights, actually occurred.

Its a war story that takes place shortly after WW2, North America was almost wiped out in a coordinated mass attack that no one saw coming. The attack was defeated, just barely, and USA and Canada were forced to reissue conscription, but since there were so many losses. The minimum age was reduced to the point were 13 year old kids are on the front lines. Nothing big was expected of these kids, however, this story follows a group of kids that not only proved themselves, but gave the Allied forces a fighting chance.

this story has a lot of sarcasm and humor in it, but it is in general a very serious and develops into a dark, sad story. All thoughts are welcome :)

Suspense

"On that Tuesday mid-afternoon, I remembered looking out the window and watching the snow fall from the top of the clear world, and to the dirty and gritty ground, and I remembered that was the last time I could ever see the beauty in it.

Oh, how I hate acid snowflakes."

While working on homework in a small café in Loveland, CO during her holiday-break, a man comes up to the 15-year-old, Tavi Smith, and starts a conversion.

That was her first mistake.

When he 'accidentally' spills coffee on her, he runs and buys her a new one. Feeling that Tavi had to be polite, she takes the coffee.

That was the second mistake.

Believing that he was a trustable, funny, kind man, she takes a drink of her coffee.

That was her third mistake.

The man ​drugs her, and takes her away, deep in the Rocky Mountains, with the heavy winter snow covering their tracks. Imprisoned in a cabin, far away from her family and friends, it's just her and a strange man named William. He is arrogant, cocky, unpredictable, dangerous . . . but the only person that she has for miles.

Suspense

Called "Bizarre" Consultant Agency by their handlers because of their case work, the duo that make up the whole of the agency are a pair of strange cases themselves. Jude Holland is a talented blood mage, while his intern (read: "best friend") Glenn Sherwood is a token troubled werewolf.

The two of them enjoyed a bit of a honeymoon period following their initial teaming up, but now there's trouble in paradise...

Episode Zero: How BCA started.Conna Holland, Jude's older sister, gets involved with Glenn Sherwood and unfortunately discovers why the werewolf has been on the run for the last decade. Jude and Woody band together to hunt down the offending creature.

Episode One: How The Circle fell.The Circle of Magi in Dareklind hires BCA to infiltrate a cabal of blood magi living in the underbelly of the city, unaware that Jude is himself an apostate. However, Jaeborn Dae--the ambitious mage lord who originally recommended them--has other plans for the duo.

Episode Two: How BCA grew. Pack Law didn't drag Woody back into Jude's life after a year of estrangement, but a sinister killing, similar to the one that haunts them both, definitely did. As the bodies pile up, the Bizarre Boys are forced to not only reconcile their differences, but reach out to other supernatural agencies if they intend to survive.

Updated when I'm smoking hookah.

Some believed the world would end on the 21st December 2012, but as far as I knew it was just the end of the Mayan Calendar.

Nothing terrible would happen to mankind.

However, when the wheels were set in motion it was up to me to stop the one responsible. How a mere mortal like myself would be able to take on a God was beyond me, but I had to try.
