Marissa Farrar is a multi-published fantasy and horror author. She was born in Devon, England, has travelled all over the world, and has lived in both Australia and Spain. She now resides in the countryside with her husband, three young children, a crazy Spanish dog, two rescue cats and six hens. Despite returning to England, she daydreams of one day being able to split her time between her home country and the balmy, white sandy beaches of Spain.
Even though she’s been writing stories since she was small and held dreams of being a writer, her initial life plan went a different way.
In her youth, inspired by James Herriot, she decided to become a vet, and would regularly bring home new pets to her weary parents. Upon discovering her exams were never going to get her into a veterinary degree, she ended up studying Zoology. Once she completed her degree and realised she’d spent the majority trying to find time to write, she decided to follow her dream of being an author. Seven years later, she was published and two years after that she was able to say goodbye to the day job.
However, she’s continued to collect animals!
Marissa is the author of ten novels, including the dark vampire ‘Serenity’ series.
Her short stories have been accepted for a number of anthologies including, Their Dark Masters, Red Skies Press, Masters of Horror: Damned If You Don’t, Triskaideka Books; and 2013: The Aftermath, Pill Hill Press.

I got this book from free from smashwords.
While reading this book I felt heartbroken for both Thomas and his wife Abby. They are both dealing with their son David in the hospital being treated for leukemia and going through hard times with their marriage.
Thomas starts seeing graffiti everywhere on the train, in a bathroom stall. And he believes the words written "GO BACK" are meant for him but he does not understand why. This story was really short and I was really wanting more because I want to know what do the words mean? Why are they meant for Thomas? Will his son get better? But knowing that there is another book called Underlife I am anxious to start reading it. Because GO BACK left me wanting to read more.
