About Cindy Carroll
Cindy is a member of Sisters in Crime and a graduate of Hal Croasmun's screenwriting ProSeries. Her interviews with writers of CSI and Flashpoint appeared in The Rewrit, the Scriptscene newsletter, the screenwriting Chapter of RWA. She writes screenplays, thrillers, and paranormals, occasionally exploring an erotic twist. A background in banking and IT doesn't allow much in the way of excitement so she turns to writing stories that are a little dark and usually have a dead body. She lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband and two cats. When she's not writing you can usually find her painting landscapes in oil, playing video games (Sims 3 and Sims 4 are favourites), or watching her favourite television shows marathon style.

Note: This story first appeared in the Magic and Mystery anthology.
Especially when you find out your hot ex-boyfriend hasn’t aged a day since prom.
Nothing could convince aspiring reporter Callie to attend her fifteen-year high school reunion -- except the chance to find out more about the recent murders plaguing the city. The opportunity to ambush, er, interview hotshot Detective Evan Jones is too much to resist. She knows he'll be there. After all, he was the prom king and the hottest, most infuriating guy in school.
And her first love.
And the guy who broke her heart.
Callie won't let that stop her from getting the interview that might make her career. Besides, maybe if she sees that Evan has turned into a doughnut-obsessed, boring by-the-books cop, maybe she'll finally get over him.
But Detective Jones is still a six-foot-one brawny, beautiful, infuriating bad boy. He hasn't changed a bit since high school.
He still looks exactly the same.
Mixing business with pleasure might be ill advised, but one last hookup will help her move on from Evan for good.
Her interest in Evan draws the attention of the killer and she finds herself with target on her back. Unless they can stop the murderer, this will be the last reunion Callie ever attends.
Reflections Inn looks perfect for the group of friends. A little run down, it hides a supernatural horror. A curse that replaces people with their repressed alter egos forces the friends to fight for their lives. Duplicates who lack restraint, crave gratification emerge from the mirrors. Too late they realize they didn't know each other as well as they thought.
One by one, Lena's friends learn the truth about their repressed emotions, their suppressed violent urges.
What doesn't kill them can only make them stronger.
This is a short story of approximately 7,800 words.
