Science Fiction Romance

Chase and Trista Leighton are about to celebrate their first year of marriage. Both serve a band of freedom fighters known as the Ghosts, and they couldn’t be happier.

Until Trista is captured by the corrupt government, the Progressive Legacy. They broadcast news of her execution, but hand her over to their Experimental Medicine Agency.

Chase's hope outweighs his grief. He launches a search for Trista. While following a lead, he and his men are ambushed, arrested, and sentenced to the Straitjacket, a ship-based facility for the criminally insane.

Systems analyst Krissa Carlisle is temporarily assigned to the ship to fix their computers. As she is working, Chase and the other inmates riot. She becomes their prisoner.

But when Chase comes face-to-face with Krissa, he recognizes her...

As Trista.

The only spooky story that I have is that I understand about
having a form of seizure that comes on once in a while that
is yet to be understood by medicine, yet is controlled by
medication. I, like you, went through a battery of tests,
and saw many doctors, but was spared the agony of having my
license pulled. I don't drive that much, and can tell in
advance on those days when a seizure is in my future. Mine
seem to be caused by severe stress, so I've learned how to
control it for the most part. Anyway the scariest thing of
late would have to be going to see my Father laying on his
death bed in the hospital. The doctor came in to talk to my
Sisters and myself about taking him off of life support, and
I asked him if my Father could hear the conversation. He
said yes, and I yelled at the doctor about being so cold
regarding the conversation. We then took it to a private
room. The whole thing was not only scary, but eerie in its'
own right, because we were holding his right to exist in our

Ashley, I did want to add that when I read the synopsis to
your book, I was totally blown away!! I have to say that I
can't recall seeing a story line quite like yours, and am
looking forward to reading your book!! It's on my TBR list.
Congratulations on your book, and I'm sure it's going to do
quite well!! Thank you for coming today and sharing your
story, as well as letting us know about your book!!

I don't really have any spooky Halloween stories but I love hearing them.
Pam Howell 9:56am October 30, 2015)

I enjoy Halloweeen spooky stories but don't know any.

Living in New Jersey, the spookiest, scariest thing I
can think of is the Jersey Devil. One night when I was
driving home from helping a friend repair his hunting
cabin in the Pine Barrens, I reached a point on the
deserted road where the road made a sharp right turn.
As I approached this turn, there was a very tall and
very old pine tree ahead of me. It was around 9 p.m.
and the October night was pitch black. I noticed two
red points of light about 20 feet up in the pine tree.
I didn't think too much about it right then because I
was concentrating on navigating the turn. But as I got
closer to home, I started to think. I had never seen
an animal's eye shine red. I couldn't have been a deer
because it was too high up and their eyes shine green.
It wasn't an owl because the 'eyes' were too far apart
and owl's eyes don't shine red either. The same
applies to bobcats although they can climb trees. I
couldn't imagine what kind of animal it might have
been. I told my mother about it, but she had no
suggestions. The next day I called my friend and told
him about it. He chuckled and told me that I had seen
the Jersey Devil. I don't know if it was true because
my friend did love to tease me, but his explanation is
as good as anything I can think of. If one searches
the internet for the Jersey Devil, one finds that
there have been innumerable sightings for several
hundred years. Including sightings, even in daylight,
by police officers, firemen and even a mayor. My mind
remains open. However, I do try to avoid dark and
deserted places when I'm by myself and I always remain

When I was a kid, my brother and I were riding in the
back of a pickup truck (this was back in the days when
that was considered okay!). My parents were in the truck
driving us along a dark, forested area on some small road
in the middle of nowhere, SC. My brother and I have
overactive imaginations and swore we saw "tree people"
staring at us and banged loudly on the window and
demanded we all squeeze inside the truck so we'd be safe
from the "tree people". We still laugh about it to this

Nothing specifically Halloween oriented, but almost everyone can come up with something either from local lore or personal happenings that fit into the scary mold!

The young couple out parking... hear a noise... get
scared...gun the car... later on find a bloody hook on the
door handle. Heard that as a kid & it really scared me.
Still haunts me!

When I was younger we went to the movies to watch all the halloween movies. A car load of people came in yelling etc. when we came out there was bodies under the car. They were stuffed but sure looked real.

I had a neurological development that caused facial axial drooping, ocular and olfactory hallucinations, lasting approx. six months acutely. Had every test for every test docs could think of and they came up with nothing. I still have axial facial asymmetry but that seems to be it. I think it's a variation of post encephalitis syndrome but that has had very little research done on it, unlike post polio syndrome.
Kathleen Bylsma 6:51pm October 31, 2015)

Nothing spooky happened to me, but I do like to read those
kind of stories...looking forward to your book-it sounds
really good!

I had seizures also - back in my senior year in high school - three grand mal seizures, no cause was ever found - I never knew when they were coming on, and I remembered clearly what I was doing before the seizures (except for the one I had in my sleep!).
Felicia Ciaudelli 12:29pm November 1, 2015)

i had one seizures in 2009 i don't remember it.But i do
remember going to the hospital a litle bit.my mom heard
it,and she told my dad,and i have been talking the medience
ever since.
Ann Unger 11:19pm November 1, 2015)

What a unique experience to draw inspiration from. It makes
your story much more enticing.
I've never had a seizure, but have been with someone who
had them. Very scary. I do hope you are well now.
