From the Author
Is there a writer gene and isstorytelling genetic? And are there sub categories of the writer genejust like there are sub genres in writing. If there is a "dark"writer gene, well, that fits me perfectly. I like writing from the darkplaces. To spiral my characters into tragedy - with a dash of hope. Onthe page I can act out horrific events by evil people and never getarrested.
EXCERPT of one dark character in A HUMAN ELEMENT:
As X-10 ran under the full moon, leaping over rocks and roots, dartingaround boulders he could see her in his mind. Laura. You are mine. Thenhe saw her with her man. Water coursed all around them. Her hair hungwet about her shoulders. X-10 closed off his mind's eye to the scene. It made him feel strange. And in that strange feeling he couldn't define,X-10 hated her even more.
Rage surged through him and his blood pulsed fast, throbbing under his white skin in blue rivers. He forcedhimself to run faster through the night. Why did she get to live anormal life? He would make sure her end was not normal. And she wouldwish she had never been born.
A lonesome dog bayed in the hills above X-10 as if approving his plan. Streaks of moonlight and shadowsfell across his face like whip lashes over and over, creating a livingpainting from darkness and light. He would show Laura darkness like shenever experienced, and pain. There would be so much pain. He howled back at the creature that rode alone through the woods like he did. Perhapsthey would meet along their journeys. He hoped so. He was getting hungry again.
