She should have been panicking. It would have been the appropriate reaction to falling off a cliff and landing on a series of sharp pieces of granite, but she was strangely calm.
Tick Tock goes the clock.
Most young girls would have thought it an adventure to live in an attic above the rafters of an old theater, but it was only a reminder of her solitude.
Morgan discovered writing when her three-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. It was through that experience which instilled the need to share art and magic with children through words on the page. Morgan currently lives with her X-Games gold-medalist husband and four children in the cold mountains of Alaska.
Review of The Redpoint Crux
Review (4 Stars): The Redpoint Crux was a very interesting, yet goth mystery that reminded me quite a bit of the old movie, Suspiria. Megan used to be a ballerina until a serial killer took the life of her musician father many years ago and she returns to the theater to work on her climbing career. There she learns that things aren’t what they seem and a killer taking the lives of fellow ballerinas, just like before. To save the theater she loved and prevent herself from becoming another victim, she must find the killer before it is too late. Will she be able to find the truth in time?
The atmosphere of this mystery was very dark and gothic and I had a hard time trying to figure out which characters that you could trust. Everyone had their secrets, including Megan, and I was praying that she wasn’t involved into this carefully woven murder plot. This was a very interesting story that will keep you guessing and definitely one that I will have to read again to pick up on the clues.
