Price $3.99 eBook

Blurb Thunderous applause and cheers rose up from the dense crowd, enough to drown out the snipers silenced rifle. The first scream was heard as a loud cheer, as was the second and the third and the fourth. The sniper lined them up and mowed them down without anyone being the wiser, well, until the bodies began dropping. And even then, the realization that they were under attack eluded the fair goers. It would be a while before full-fledged panic set in. By that time, she would have done what she came to do. Lining the next target up in the scope of her long range “Twilight” sniper rifle, she blinked once, leveled her breathing, and when she opened her eyes, Dalia pulled the trigger again. They were still none the wiser.

She finds herself on a path of destruction fueled by pain, struggling to pick up the pieces.

Take this journey with Essence as she discovers the true essence of herself.

Author E. N. Hardy

She loves to write poetry, erotica, and in her own words "emotional fiction." The only thing that matters to her is the way you "feel" after reading her work. She enjoys a career in healthcare education, and does lots of reading in her spare time. Her all-time favorite author is V. C. Andrews, with Frank McCourt being a very close second. In 2012 she began working on her debut novel, I Used To Cry: The Essence of Essence. She currently resides in the Metro Detroit area with her husband and four children.
