FEATURED AUTHOR: STEVE GROGAN


ABOUT THE BOOK He was lost, directionless, unable to find his identity. He thought he found it in her, which was good because he was teetering on the edge of madness. She had no way of knowing her actions would push him over it.

Some stories have protagonists/narrators for which you can feel empathy, or at the very least you can feel sorry for them.

 This isn't one of those tales.

 This is a story about a young man who makes the mistake of depending on others for a sense of self-worth. It is a dark, disturbing story not meant for the f...
