Fiction

A look into the harrowing despair of a middle-class family tormented beyond endurance by a mindless act of violence.
Chris Carter had it all. Looks, personality, a loving family, a beautiful, intelligent girlfriend, and a promising future. Then he walked his girlfriend home after his sister’s 21st birthday party and everything changed.
For Chris’ family and friends, the unthinkable then became the only option, and the question became who, not what?
But did any attempt to change events simply risk trading one broken life for another, while accomplishing nothing? Or could it alter the future in a totally unexpected way?

Excerpt

When do day and night cease to matter?
Is it when breathing stops, when the heart can’t pump blood anymore, or when the brain dies?....

One instant I was in a totally black world devoid of all sound, of all smell, of all tactile sensation, the next I was besieged by a bewildering assortment of stimuli. Life, with its myriad experiences, pressed in upon me and took on an entirely new significance. I existed again--but differently! If I hadn’t been reincarnated, I had certainly returned from the dead!
A headache ran in a band across my eyes and a dry-mouthed drowsiness stubbornly refused to be dispelled. I felt an uneasy awareness that something dreadfully distressing had happened--the way one awakes from an almost remembered nightmare-—and I kept reaching deep inside my brain, stretching memory fingers that almost touched the disturbance, but could never quite grasp it.

Reader Reviews for "Shared Emptiness"

Reviewed by Indialyne Pinto 6/16/2011
Your book attracts my attention, it appears to be a story akin to mine, "The Unread Chapters". I have just closed the final chapter to my book that is focused on my brain damage due to a bicycle accident, in 1963, that erased the past then denied long term memory until 1995. One moment I'm 13 yrs old in WV, the next I'm 18 years old and live GA with nothing inbetween. I have 3 major'spot scenes' and two of these are posted on my site. Is it not wonderful to put our experiences on paper to share with others. Good luck and wish me luck on finding an editor.
