A Chilling Summer Short Story
Darkness moves beneath the surface of a tranquil lakefront community in this vacation horror story.
The Surface is a short story set in the Southeast United States, now available for all e-readers from online retailers such as Amazon and Smashwords. My freewheelin' party days on the Tennessee River inspired the story's lighter moments, but its dark heart emerged in a nightmare. Here's the synopsis:
Jenny spends every summer at her family's lakehouse in a vacation community that closed its ranks to outsiders generations ago. Here, old school ties and unwritten social codes present a united front as cool and tranquil as the lake, itself. But darkness moves beneath the surface and when Jenny is sexually assulted on the way home from a midnight party, rescue comes from an unlikely source far more dangerous than her attackers.
