writer, philosopher, collector of tap shoes


by sasha dawn

One year ago, Callie was found in an abandoned apartment, scrawling words on the wall: I KILLED HIM. His blood is on my hands. His heart is in my soul. I KILLED HIM. But she remembers nothing of that night or the previous thirty-six hours. All she knows is  that her father, the reverend at the Church of the Holy Promise, is missing, as is Hannah, a young girl from the parish. Their disappearances have to be connected as Callie knows that her father was not a righteous man.

Since that fateful night, she's been plagued by graphomania--an unending and debilitating compulsion to write. The words that flow from Callie's mind and through her pen don't seem to make sense...until now.

As the anniversary of Hannah's vanishing approaches, more words and memories bubble to the surface and a guy at school might be the key to Callie's putting the puzzle together. But digging up secrets she's buried in her mind might be her biggest mistakes.
