It's here you'll find writing that's more than poetic, writing that's flawlessly rhythmic that stimulates your mind's reach for answers that exist behind every effortless metaphor.

Compelling masterpiece. Brooklyn Dean has a way of getting into the mind of her characters. In Amethyst, she has written a diary-like story of manic obsession.
