Hiding in Third Person
Hiding in Third Person is a story within a story. A mental patient tells a wild story of two boys running from a killer. The boys take refuge at an abandoned military facility in the Central Jersey Pine Barrens. The patient’s story ends in a bloody showdown, and the disappearance of one of the boys.
Doctors do not take the man’s story seriously. One orderly is compelled to prove the story true, even though to do so will put him in harm’s way.
Bio: After retiring from the military, I became a high school teacher. The two main characters in the patient’s story are loosely based on several boys I have taught over the years.

In a race against time, Bixby and her crew battle to stop the decimation of the human race at the hands of these new mutations.
They are the last strain of resistance.

I’m a Magna Cum Laude Walden college graduate, a Russian immigrant to the US in ’94, and a fiction writer. My book is about a high school teacher who is haunted by confusing, and at times frightening visions after moving with husband and teenage son to Boston, as result of winning a lottery. A surprise meeting with a strange man at a coffee shop raises questions in her head, which a boy in her English class seems to have answers for. As they get to know each other, can the boy have the answers for the woman, and vice versa?
She is a self-hating anti social hermit. Who’s a sarcastic asshole who reads books, writes them and does art every now and then. Has the tendency to brag on about video games while playing them on Twitter.
A shitlord who isn’t afraid to call out the reader/booktube community for their bullshit when it comes to attacking authors/publishers.

I relish to ruminate, with my impassive glance, the never-ending path of a creek, which gush in the most vivace music played by water and rocks. Music accompanied by the muttering of the leaves, under the direction of the shivering breeze, with the beat of the falling drops over the water film. Intense trained in the art of chill-ax and deep enthusiast of the roasted coffee scent, combined with the emanating petrichor of grass, I am an expert in burning the daylight or contemplating the sky in search for clouds’s patterns.
You know you have issues being a successful slave if:
– You started to hate your job?
– You want more time for yourself and less time for work? (8 to 10 hours per day working – sometimes more too)
– You want to work without fixed schedule constrains?
– You are sick of management, ass kissing and stupid methodologies that does nothing?
– You want to be your own boss?
This manifesto is a satire and need to be treated as is. However, you can change its sense by reading it between lines.
Urban ninja and New York lover, I blended my top hobbies into Chaos (un)Controlled: reading, writing, and gaming. The novel follows teenage Rixa Storms as she stumbles across a library-in-the-sky-world; a welcome escape from her mother’s religious, controlling nature. But finds a murky truth below the polished surface of what seems like a paradise, and to emerge victorious, she’ll need to overcome her upbringing’s resulting emotional suppression to better control her power, or risk being consumed by her newfound abilities. I consider it a Contemporary Science Fantasy Young Adult novel. It was a bit difficult to categorize, haha. I’m also a graffiti-admirer and a Pokemon GO addict.
Parties are not Madeline’s thing.
Being social isn’t her thing. She’s a five-foot eight-inch industrial-strength loser. She’s invisible. She’s no one. She could drop dead in class and no one would notice.
So why does she accept an invitation — from someone she barely knows — to the party of the year?
It’s definitely not because Mark Alister is going. Popular, attractive, universally desired Mark Alister. A boy like that would never even look at a train wreck like her.
But . . . he does! He talks to her! They fall in love! And they live happily ever after. The end.
Yeah — not a chance. Maybe if she lived in a Disney movie. In reality, Madeline has walked straight into a trap — one which no amount of wishing on stars can save her from. Mark is going to make her face everything she’s been hiding from for the past seven years. And the truth about Madeline Parker could either fix her, and make her worthy of being loved . . . or it could kill her.
