Chelsea, a second-year student at Yale University, thought she had it all. A caring mother, a guy who was crazy about her, and some pretty decent grades. How much better could it get?
When boyfriend John gathers the nerve to propose, the answer should have been obvious. Instead, she freezes up, asking for time to think it over. Before she can give her answer, Chelsea is snatched off the street.
Trapped in a dark cell and tortured, only the inspiring memory of her mother’s words keep her from giving into despair.
Now, she’s determined to find some way out of her living hell to be reunited with the love of her life once again.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
My characters tend to be very realistic. I feel like if you can’t relate to a character personally, reading about them can be more of a chore than entertainment. When realistic characters meet an unpredictable plot, the reader can’t help but get sucked into the story.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write, write a lot, and then write some more. Don’t write to make money, write to make connections with readers. It doesn’t matter how crazy your plot idea may be, you will never know if it works until you write it down. I have started many hair-brained plot ideas only to find out that they actually work well once the characters have been fully developed. I’m not going to say that every story idea is a keeper, I have many story ideas that never made it past the outline. But keep writing, power through, and you may be surprised with the end result.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have always wanted to write a story that made the reader think after the final line has been read. Unpredictable stories are some of my favorites to read, so I wanted to share that with my readers. Twisting and turning is one of my favorite things about writing!
About the Author:
As a mother, wife, homemaker, musician, x-ray tech, and now writer, Krista is always looking for the next big challenge. Known to many for her ambition and persistence, it is obvious that she is driven to finish what she starts while aiming for the stars.
In addition to storytelling, Krista’s other addictions include shopping and the continuous consumption of red licorice. Young at heart, her fascination with teen fiction quickly became an obsession as well.
Krista now resides in Missouri, where the rolling Ozark Hills are breathtaking, the weather is bi-polar, and the squirrels are very distracting. She spends her days surrounded by testosterone with her husband, two sons, and a Bullmastiff by the name of Einstein. Things can get a little hairy (literally), but Krista believes that you can overcome anything with the simple task of writing your own ending.
