by Richard Dela Cruz
117 pages

Sixteen-year-old Maddie Jax has only one thing on her mind: save her younger sister from a sexual predator. The plan was simple: take a cross-country bus ride, confront the creep, and rescue Amy.

When Maddie gets booted off the bus two thousand miles short of her destination, she accepts a ride from a stranger. But things go wrong, and she finds herself trapped inside a creepy basement lit by one flickering lightbulb. It doesn’t take her long to realize that time is running out, not just for Amy, but for herself as well.

Stark Raving Maddie is available for Kindle and in print from, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon UK.

Flash Fiction Challenge: The Fog of Memory

Foggy Barn-Colville Valley I had hunted up here before, but in the cloak of mist I had lost my bearings.

After a while, the quiet became unnerving. I quickened my pace, hoping to come across a familiar landmark or perhaps even a logging road.

I saw the looming shadow of a structure ahead and called out. No answer came, but I proceeded forward, hoping someone might be there to help me find my way. I stopped short when I saw the barn. I knew where I was now, yet it was impossible. That barn burned down thirty years ago.
