Maggie is 16 year old when her life takes a turn, exposing her to beings and things the small town Upstate NY girl has never imagined could actually exist. Maggie's past, at best, has been lived under the cloud of her father's crime. John Henning, currently residing at Sunnybrook Psychiatric Hospital, is serving a sentence for murder for fire bombing a church and killing eight people inside.
Maggie is ashamed of her father's actions, but even though she's begged her mother for a fresh start, her mom refuses. Its unfair and Maggie must endure 10 years of constant teasing, bullying, and ridicule by the other kids in her town.
Maggie has no friends, aside from Stephanie. The daughter of her father's former (and now deceased) partner, Stephanie has tried her best to be a friend to Maggie through it all.
Maggie's world begins to change after getting a rather cryptic letter in the mail. A warning that at the time, makes no sense to Maggie at all.
The first novel in the Maggie Henning series is titled "Phoenix Rising" and is available now at smashwords, amazon, barnes & noble, etc... as well as lulu.com for paperback lovers!
I'll try to post more later, but the night grows dark...and one never can know for sure what lurks in the surrounding shadows...
