The artist is very mysterious, cryptic, and his actions are unsettling, but she finds herself being seduced, almost as if she has no will to resist.

I met Rosanne Dingli on Amazon's Discussion boards.

This is a Short Story with a horror movie feel to it.

Marie was drawn into his studio. Was it curiosity or was it fate? The artist's mood was uncertain and she was scared but didn't know why.

Ms. Dingli has a way of setting the scene that makes the reader feel as though they are there in the shadows watching and waiting to see what will happen next.

I'm afraid I didn't really enjoy this book, and I had hoped to very much. It was very strange, with an odd ending, one I didn't really understand at all.
