The peaceful realm of the Father, has always been a safe and loving place for Daya and the other children of the underworld. But now Keenan, the most important person in Daya’s life, wants nothing more than to escape the protective confines of the only place they’ve ever known. Now standing before the very doors that have always protected them throughout their delicate and tender lives, Keenan seeks to bring them crashing down. That is, if the storming force on the other side, doesn’t rip the barricade of its hinges first. And what will become of them and the world of the Father, if that happens?
The provocative tale of The Beckoning Within, was inspired by a “finish the sentence” word play with another science fiction and fantasy author, known as Jaebi and for that he has our thanks. Enjoy the original version as published here at Thunderquill, or download its new incarnation for free at Smashwords or Barnes and Noble.
For Clementine, Teddy and Samien their secrets are too overwhelming to manage. Rigged for silent running, they are racing around the trio amid the seemingly tranquil waves of the culturally conflicted restaurant The Silk Poppy. Loaded down with heavy emotional explosives, there’s no telling where, or who they’re going to hit upon impact.
When Clementine is unable to control the delicate deployment of one particularly devastating missile, she unwittingly sets her son Teddy on a potentially disastrous collision-course with her favorite waiter and longtime friend Samien. And neither one of them are adequately prepared for the scorching outcome. Accidental acts of domestic terrorism, long held deceptions revealed, unbridled rage leading to detonation...anything can happen over dinner.

Then a blazing fact emerges by stealth and hits hard. It’s the wrong phone number. This criminal has mistaken her for someone else after having dialed the Wrong Phone Number!
