Marked Five, Now What? and an Idea for the Writing Contest

Elsy cranks up the trouble and mystery in two of her ongoing stories.

In Chapter 8 of Marked Five, we learn why being one of the chosen isn’t necessarily a good thing.

In the next installment of Now What? the ghost who’s been stuck haunting Kia’s room has found an unexpected way out.
