"Trust her; couldn't snag a decent man in a year of bars and clubs, but she could find a handsome weirdo at the drop of a phone call."

The Darkness Within is a supernatural thriller in which Emily Winters must protect her family from a predatory coven of magicians. It is based on a novella written by my partner, Mil Clayton, and myself by email while we were courting three states apart.

Blurb About the Book

A naked woman in red high-heeled shoes is perched on the edge of Clifton Suspension Bridge with her back pressed to the safety fence, weeping into a mobile phone. Clinical psychologist Joseph O’Loughlin is only feet away, desperately trying to talk her down. She whispers, ‘you don’t understand,’ and jumps.

Later, Joe has a visitor - the woman’s teenage daughter, a runaway from boarding school. She refuses to believe that her mother would have jumped off the bridge - not only would she not commit suicide, she is terrified of heights.

Blurb from the book

They come for me as I sleep.  Their pale faces stare at me.  Their soft voices tell me to wake, to wake.  They come to remind me of the night, to remind me of what I have done.
