Benjamin X. Wretlind, has been--at different times, of course--a fry cook, range boy, greens maintenance technician, reservations agent, room service attendant, editor, banquet server, meteorologist, instructor, program manager for Internet applications and curriculum developer.
Ever since he ran with scissors when he was five, Mr. Wretlind has always wanted to write.
He has been published in many magazines, to include The Horror Express, All Hollows: The Journal of the Ghost Story Society, Horror Carousel and Bare Bones. He's penned a few novels, deleted a few novels, edited a few novels and is, of course, writing a few novels.
Four-year-old Justine has been lost to the world and with her an ability feared by many. But the balance of power has been shifting for years, and Justine may be able to tip those scales for good...if someone can find her in a pitiless place of sorrow and pain.
A jilted husband with a grudge, a bomb, and a dead wife; three mothers facing life and death; a warrior in a battle with his memory; a man at odds with the stereotypes surrounding him; an immigrant looking for fortune in the wrong places; and a woman who can't stop running for her life. These are the subjects of a woman with a gift, a woman who has already lost everything.
Benjamin X. Wretlind presents fourteen short stories--some bizarre, some horrific, some soft and quiet like scissors through skin. Some of the stories have been published in magazines like The Horror Express, All Hallows, Horror Carousel and the Bare Bones anthology series, while others have never been published before.
