There are many different types of people in this world, and they’re not all human.

‘Superman, as long as I have you here, just answer one thing for me: Why tights? Why a cape? You’re a grown man. Don’t you feel ridiculous?’

Update: Skin (Hero, book 2)

Ok, so, I chucked out the 15k words I’d written for book 2. Again. I think this is the 4th time I’ve changed the entire plot (well, not the entire plot, just the specifics), but, trust me, this storyline is going to be way more awesome.

Another book to add to my exploding book pile! At this rate, I’m never going to get any writing done. I think I need a TARDIS, anyone got one spare?


Renna sat at the small round table in her room, reading through the data Dallas had sent to her tablet. She took another sip of scorching coffee and held the liquid in her mouth for a fraction of a second—until her tongue started to burn—before swallowing. Sometime in the past few days, she’d started doing stuff like that, letting herself experience feelings she’d normally ignore. Like each time might be her last. Continue reading »
