1st Six Sentence Sunday

So, at the gentle nudging of my friend Jenna, I've jumped into the Six Sentence Sunday crowd.

Thia is from my current WIP, untitled. It's called Austin for now.

Escalante, Colorado.
Tiny. Beautiful. Remote.
Not the kind of place where women vanished into thin air.
Until now.

Please try out more author snippets!

And come back next week for more Austin.

  5. Great tease! Jenna is something else. I like the fact that you give us this sleepy little town then drop the bomb that someone is missing, a woman! Good deal
