#TeaserTuesday – Shadows

Hello, my Freaky Darlings!

Have you read Shadows?

In case you haven’t, here’s a short extract to entice you into getting a copy.



I was rudely distracted from my reverie by an annoying tapping on my window. I was about to hurl off a few choice words at the offending party until I saw his face. My stomach churned, my self-pity party transformed into a Stephen King novel.

Yellow eyes stared back at me. Sharp, pointed teeth, filed into fangs, snarled. He shook my door handle. My heart rate jumped sky high. He was gone as fast as he’d appeared.

I took a deep breath and looked around. No sign of him. I took another deep breath and breathed out slowly.

“What the hell was that?” I stammered.

I managed to get my heart rate down, but couldn’t quite get the hair on the back of my neck to go back to normal. My skin wouldn’t stop crawling. Goosebumps appeared on my skin, and the smell of sulphur wafted up my nostrils.

Something scraped the driver’s side of the car. I hoped it was Kevin returning with a stiff drink: preferably a bottle of tequila. I turned to look, and my heart sank. The scary-looking man with fangs was back. Kevin had left the car unlocked. Panic gripped my palpitating heart. Who didn’t lock their car in Johannesburg? He shook the door. I leaned over the driver’s seat and slammed the lock down. The central locking did its job. Then he was gone again.

“Breathe, just breathe,” I repeated it over and over again, while I doubled over and put my head between my knees. I squeezed my eyes shut. He was playing games with me, and I didn’t know the rules. I felt helpless. I wanted to scream, but fear had a stranglehold on my throat, silencing me.

Tap Tap.

I plugged my ears with my fingers. It wasn’t happening.

Tap Tap.

Turning my head to the left, I opened one eye.

Glass shattered.

I screamed.

He pulled my hair.
