Synopsis | Teaser | About the Author | Giveaway & Tour Stops


High school is torture for Steven Walthurst, and home isn’t a whole lot better. The only place that offers respite is an abandoned tree house at the edge of town. But something lurks in the nearby woods, and the long line of elm trees has a clear message for Steven: keep out.

Then one day, Steven finds a little girl lying unconscious, perilously close to the woods. As the two get to know one another, Steven experiences real friendship for the first time—and gets closer than ever to knowing the darkness that skulks between the trees.

He dedicates himself to keeping his new friend safe, but the tranquility of their fragile hidden world doesn’t last long. When an act of cruelty pushes Steven to his limits, his secrets—and those of the dark woods—come close to unraveling, threatening to destroy the one thing making his teenage life bearable. Can Steven save everything he’s built from crumbling under the pressure?

Teaser: Excerpt

     “Mrs. Walthurst, I’m sorry to say that Steven punched Judge Watterson’s son. As you can see, Butch is bleeding and will most likely need medical attention. Butch has also brought to our attention that this is not the first time an incident of this sort has happened involving Steven.” Steven stared at the desk just like his momma did. The only difference was that Steven had an angry scowl on his face. “Mrs. Walthurst, do you understand the severity of the situation?”
     Steven’s momma jerked and looked at Mrs. Thatcher as if she had been shot.
     “Of course I understand the severity of the situation,” she spat. “Now, why don’t you tell me what the hell happened before my son hit him. I think that would explain why it happened in the first place.”
     If ever Steven was proud of his momma before, he couldn’t remember. But in Mrs. Thatcher’s office that day, she definitely did him proud.
     Mrs. Thatcher linked her fingers on her desk and leaned forward. “Mrs. Walthurst, while I appreciate you trying to get to the root of the issue, I must point out that violence is not the way to settle differences of opinion, or anything else, for that matter. We do not tolerate such behavior at Halstead High.”
     The judge smirked, looking quite satisfied with her tart response.
     “Don’t you dare talk to me like I’m an idiot, Mrs. Thatcher. Nobody tolerates violence, and it’s certainly not how I intend to raise my son. Scheming, conniving, and violent ways are not ours,” his momma said, shooting a sharp look at the judge. He offered her a smile laced with pity and turned to face Mrs. Thatcher. Steven’s momma ignored him and continued, “Now, is someone here going to tell me what the hell happened?”
