Kara Thorpe started writing as a distraction in French class and never stopped (just don’t ask her to conjugate many verbs). Born and raised in Texas, she loves all things historical, scientific, and downright geeky. Though she prefers to write short, character-driven stories, she ventured into the world of the novel with the first book of the Family Lies series "Daughter of Deception."

I have the rough draft of Vampires, Bears and Other Bitey Things 90% finished.  To help everyone get back in to the Az & Rick groove, here's a short story that takes place after the first book.

Adventures in Ghost Hunting Chapter 1 /3

“I see at intervals the glance of a curious sort of bird through the close set bars of a cage: a vivid, restless, resolute captive is there; were it but free, it would soar cloud-high.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
