Friday Snippet

Since I'm out of town Friday, I'm posting a short snippet tonight to start off this linking. Hope I figured out what I'm supposed to do. This is the very first scene of the first chapter of my WIP (work-in-progress). I don't have a title yet.


Rhea Taylor paused in the doorway of her flat, hand frozen in the act of removing her keys from the door lock. In the deepest shadows of her living room, but still visible, stood her brother.

"Charles?" she whispered.

Hands shaking, she fumbled for the light switch. When light flooded her living room, no one stood there.

Of course.

Charles had been dead for five years.
