In this paranormal thriller, Casey Darling is riddled with teen angst just like every other girl in America. She is also cursed with the peculiar ability to enter the minds of people as they die. Her dingy dwelling is no comfort to living with the precious gift she deems a nasty fate. Blessed with an alcoholic mother and a mute for a twin, Casey navigates through a small town panic when a serial killer emerges and a golden boy from California shows up at school. His annoying sincerity and romantic advances send Casey over the edge, as her best friends become prey and the FBI descends into her world.

A Young Adult Novel
By: Luke Evans

If you don’t know the boy who sits in the back row with stains on his fingers, you probably think Daniel Cohen is just an introverted artist with a brutally honest tongue. Truth is, Daniel is really treading through life with Asperger’s Syndrome and recently discovered his ability to paint deadly images that slither into reality. Now questioning everything he’s ever known, Daniel’s power puts him up against a dangerous adversary. We learn that several students at Spirit Ridge High are not what they seem. Including his best friend.

Luke’s novel was released by Zharmae Press in 2016. Luke obtained the rights back to his series and is planning a re-release in 2018!

“When I came to Mary Claire with Luke’s book, I was looking for an opinion and possibly direction on how to proceed. Well, we got more than we could have imagined. Mary Claire worked tirelessly on editing the manuscript and shopping it to publishers. She took a chance on a teenager who is “different” and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Luke is realizing things in his life that he thought would always be in his dreams only. We can’t say enough about how blessed we feel for Mary Claire and Charlie’s Port!”
