Voices from Beyond contains a reflection of historical fiction authors who have inspired me as a writer, a fictional short story titled "Adelaide," and the first two chapters of a young adult paranormal thriller titled Indigo. "Adelaide" explores the consequences of domestic violence based on the actual events of a young woman's murder that happened in 1917 in western New York. Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 of lndigo take the readers into the life of a sixteen-year-old girl who is grieving the sudden loss of her mother opening the door for a stalker from a past live to enter her world. Both works are character driven pieces where young women are faced with adversity that challenges their strength.
