Alex, Brooke and Maryanne are all students in their final year of high school at Streep Academy, a boarding school just short of juvie. Although they share a room, the three girls have nothing in common but their own soul-deep pain. But in the attic of their residence, they find the diary of young Connie Harvell, who was confined there decades ago. But in her desperation, a dark part of Connie found a way out of that attic prison, a way to escape her pain. After reading Connie’s diary, God help them, the girls learn to do it too.
Comes the Night was released on November 27, 2012 and is currently available from Amazon.com, Amazon UK, and Smashwords.

Officially, the British government called it a state of unrest. In Northern Ireland, in 1996, they called it “The Troubles”.

At first, he’s a reluctant soldier and the Army doesn’t know what to do with him. Everything changes when tensions in Ireland escalate and the Army need a soldier with a particular set of characteristics. Hardly’s re-assigned and sent into the heart of the troubles, living in the same houses as the IRA soldiers he’s fighting against.

A.C.Flory is a science fiction writer who lives with her family, and a menagerie of cats, dogs, magpies and alpacas, on a 1.6 acre block in a bushfire prone part of southeastern Australia. During the cooler months she writes, landscapes her garden and enjoys living in amongst the gum trees. But beauty always comes at a price, so the hot, dry months of summer are spent checking her fire-fighting equipment and biting her nails.
As a writer, she draws upon these contrasts in Australia’s often harsh environment to imagine worlds where aliens must face their own battle with the elements. Yet even when writing about the most bizarre of humanoids, she uses the contrast between ‘them’ and ‘us’ to provide insights into the nature of human beings.
In her spare time, A.C.Flory reads voraciously, listens to an eclectic range of music, plays online games [mmo’s] and maintains her blog, Meeka’s Mind. You can find her at http://acflory.wordpress.com. Continue reading “Featured Author: A.C. Flory”
