When our eyes met, I felt an instant connection, like a string was tying us together.

Selene is unlike any woman I've ever met, and it makes me want her so much that I can hardly control myself around her. But she's a vampire princess, so I don't see how we could have a future. After all...

... royalty doesn't mate with humans.

Those are my mother's words, so unless my father declares otherwise, they're law to me. Maybe if she knew about the connection Shawn and I share, she'd be more amenable to the match. But I don't know what the connection is, other than a gut feeling that Shawn is my fated mate. So I must trust that...

... Fate happens, even if it seems impossible.

Anthony Whitecomb has enjoyed a successful career as a thriller and crime author. He's so prolific that his publisher, Tim Becker, starts asking questions Anthony isn't willing to answer.

Crossroads in the Dark IV: Ghosts

Foreword by Lily Luchesi, author of the "Paranormal Detective" series, and stories from CC Adams, L. Bachman, Alice J. Black, Carol Browne, Nikki Collins-Mewha, James Crawford, Rachel de la Fuente, Kerry Alan Denney, SL Kerns, Mirren Hogan, Cindy Johnson, Frank Martin, James Master, Brian G.

One night after a close friends' funeral, you feel a strange tickle on your neck. At first, you shrug it off as a figment of your imagination or a flying pest, but then you feel it again... and again... and again. Turning you do not see anything there. Nothing, not even a shadow. In the far reaches of your sight, you start to make out a somehow familiar figure, arising from the darkness of the corner of your room. You reach for the switch of the nightstand lamp only to knock it over to the floor. Your fear starts to rise along with the hairs on your neck. A familiar voice comes across the room..." Why didn't you hear me...?"

Welcome back to the Crossroads.

Crossroads in the Dark IV: GHOSTS is a collection of short stories developed in hopes of bringing awareness to suicide prevention around the world. While the stories do not tell of suicide, they do tell of GHOSTS. For whom are the ghosts that haunt us daily? What are the remains of an otherwise perfect life ended far too soon? Which are the people who we find hardest to move forward from when we lose them? The easy answer is the ones we failed to save.

Rachel de la Fuente (meaning of the fountain) lives with the love of her life and two furry children that meow. She's been writing since elementary school, and telling stories since she could speak. She is an avid fountain pen enthusiast with a bit of an ink problem, and often writes book notes and sections of stories by hand.

Rachel was born and raised in southern California, but spent many summers with family in Mexico. Her parents loved traveling, so she also spent her vacations in various locations, soaking up foreign cultures and sights. She still loves to travel, and is committed to crossing all of the locations off her bucket list.

Rachel is a proud Slytherin, and when not writing, spends much of her free time reading, playing video games, and watching documentaries.


No one does everything alone. Everyone needs some help sometimes.
