Shrapnel

“an engaging gothic tale rich with atmosphere and history.”

— Leslie Stokes, InD’tale Magazine

Shrapnel is a magical realism/paranormal/historical fiction/soft horror mutt. It’s set at Mobile’s Oakleigh Mansion, an antebellum Greek revival with an interesting past.

teen-shrapnel4It’s been six years since Dylanie and her family visited a Civil War site and the place came alive with cannon fire. Problem was, no one could hear it but her.

Now she’s sixteen, her dad’s moved out, her mom’s come out of the closet and Dylan’s got a spot on Paranormal Teen, a reality TV show filming at historic Oakleigh Mansion. She’ll spend a weekend with two other psychic teens—Jake and Ashley—learning how to control her abilities.

None of them realized how much their emotional baggage would put them at the mercy of Oakleigh’s resident spirits, or that they’d find themselves pawns in the 150-year-old battle for the South’s legendary Confederate gold. Each must conquer their personal ghosts to face down Jackson, a seductive spirit who will do anything to protect the gold’s current location and avenge a heinous attack that destroyed his family.
