WRITING

All the works and words!

Below is a selection of titles by Shaun Allan. It’s far from the career of the average author, and that’s the way they like it. Check out his collection of work and let them know what you think.

HOLLOW

Gwen, desperate to feel something, kills someone. But she quickly learns that one kill is never enough. Can Gwen stop before she turns on her own family?

                                                                      *****

It was just an experiment. Simply kill one person to see what it felt like. See if it filled the void within her. It didn't. Nor did it the next time. Or the next. Gwen is an ordinary person. Wife to Amanda. Mother to Grace and Alexandra. Suddenly she is no longer ordinary as she finds herself battling her urges and demons before she hurts those close to her. But is it already too late?

HERO

What's your superpower? Everyone has one right? That's why the world is falling apart.

After a cure for a terrible disease goes awry, everyone in the world gains superpowers. Everyone, that is, except Thomas. He's the old kind of normal. A Nomad, and Nomads are dangerous. They're hunted and killed for sport on the world's biggest game show before they go insane - all while they're eight years old.

But you don't need to be able to fly to be a HERO.

PIECES OF ME

Poetry can give an insight to the soul of the writer. Or the reader. Poetry can touch on the feelings you don't want to admit to, and those you wish you could celebrate. On life. On time. On what it is to be you.

Here's Pieces of Me, a poetic introspective that connects us all.

Praise for Pieces of Me.

SIN

WATTY WINNER!

Dead, dead, dead.  Say it enough times and it becomes just another word.
    
What would you do? Could you kill a killer? Does the death of one appease the deaths of a hundred? What about that hundred against a thousand?
    
What if you had no choice?
    
Meet Sin. No, not that sort of sin, but Sin, crazy as a loon (you ask Sister Moon), and proud of it. Sin locks himself away in an asylum and, every so often, badboy he's believed to be, gets violent. That's only so they'll give him those nice drugs, though. The ones that help him forget.
    
It's a pity they don't work.
    
Sin, you see, has a serious problem. Well, it's not so much his problem, as ours - yours, mine and everyone else's. People die around Sin.  He doesn't like it and there's nothing he can do about it.  But someone else knows, and Sin has to stop them... and himself...
    
Flip and catch...

DORTHY

Zombies and werewolves and witches, oh my!

Dorothy is a normal teenage girl.  She goes to school, hangs out and resists the advances of the boys in her year. And she lives with her aunt after the death of her parents.

A trip to a mall is brought to an abrupt halt when a freak storm hits.  Dorothy is transported to another land, one where zombies hunt, a serial killer is rebuilding his metal body from the parts of his victims and a witch is trying to prevent a self proclaimed wizard from destroying their world!

With a werewolf mourning its murdered beloved and a group of orphans ready to carry out a human sacrifice, Dorothy is sure she's not in Kansas anymore!

AND THE MEEK SHALL WALK

Princess Aren is determined to make the human  who killed her mother and exiled her people to the bottom of the ocean pay.  To do so, she must go to extremes of pain and heartache in her search for justice.
 
Aren, however, is no sweet, happy mermaid.  To kill is to ignite a fire of passion in her heart which only the savage letting of blood can satiate.  She will go to any lengths to find the man responsible, including cutting off her own tail and sewing, in its place, a pair of human legs - legs she tore from one of the many humans she had murdered.
 
With the unwilling help of the sea witch, Princess Aren must go ashore and hunt for her mother's killer.  But, in doing so, the worlds above and below the ocean will clash in ways neither thought possible!
 
And the Meek Shall Walk - a 'beautiful' and 'savage' retelling of a classic story!

DARK PLACES

I am Death. I know who you are...

There is darkness and madness in each of us. We must do battle with our own demons. But... What if those demons opened the door in the back of your mind and stepped out. What if they became real? If the night, the shadows, the reflections and Death himself walked among us? And what if they were watching you? Waiting? Thirsting...?

Dark Places. Thirteen stories. Thirteen poems. Thirteen doorways.
