Just got my cover for “Metamorphosis of Aria Mertz”. I think it looks suitably haunting.
Cover Design by James, GoOnWrite.com

Yoshika Mertz’s teenage daughter is out of control and changing before her very eyes. But she finds out it isn’t just normal hormones at work—Aria has a brain tumor. Despite a supernatural warning, Yoshika chooses an experimental immunotherapy to save her daughter. But will the cure itself change her daughter so much that she will lose her forever?

I wrote this for the Rochester Public Library’s Frankenstein Novella Contest. Most of the characters in this story (besides the Dr. Frankenstein character) are a mashup of real people either here or from my other hometown of Portland, OR. It was fun to write, but it’s a sad, sad story. Most Frankenstein monsters don’t have happy endings 😦
