Excerpt #2: (591 words)

Finn’s research boat motored toward an island farther off their projected course. The weather was picking up, but he told the crew to push through. He barked orders to secure lines and equipment, as waves churned and white foam capped their peaks. The girls grabbed pails blowing across the deck, while Jake frantically tried to secure the lines whipping around in the wind.

What the hell was going on, Finn thought. This front had come in out of nowhere. Maybe there had been an earthquake. He looked down and in disbelief, realized he’d forgotten to turn on the navigating equipment. But how could that be?

Cold fear crawled up his spine as a massive wave broke against the bow, causing Jake to bullet over the side of the boat and into the cold water. Finn screamed over the intercom for the girls to come help. When they didn’t answer, he turned and saw they were gone too. One of Holly’s flip-flops floated in the small pool of water collecting aft.

He ran to the back and saw the girls swimming toward each other without life jackets. Running to the bow, he saw Jake doing the same. Closer to the girls, Finn maneuvered the boat to retrieve them first, but by the time he’d arrived, they disappeared. Looking out toward the bow, he watched in horror as his male researcher disappeared beneath the cold blue surface too. Finn turned to run back to the cabin when he saw Raven steering the boat.

“Get to Jake!” he screamed, but she couldn’t hear him. “Raven, Jake...Jake!” He pointed.

She turned and could see him gesture but didn’t seem to know what he was saying. Alaula was on the bow now, barking loudly over the wind, her pup trying desperately not to fall off too. He ran down the hall as more water sluiced over the sides. The hallway lengthened, and he couldn’t reach the bridge.

The water started to part, and Raven turned to look at it. Iron pillars began to poke through the surface of the water and Finn’s back seemed to burn and tear and he cried out in pain. The trident tattooed along his spine stood before him in living color, but it was the length of several football fields and held in the massive hands of a man with Finn’s eyes. Black liquid ropes bound themselves around his enormous biceps and strong wrists. Another thicker one coiled around his
muscled waist and neck. He tried to lift the trident but failed. His unearthly eyes sparked at Finn, who felt the extreme heat all around him. He looked for the source and saw it was Raven. She was a ball of fire with wings unfurling, making a guttural scream.

Finn couldn’t move, aware he was utterly powerless without the trident on his back. He looked back into the face of the great man. The man only had a moment to say two words before an enormous tsunami ran through him, blending to his shape, becoming the wave, then his outline turned to the ocean’s spray. He looked back at Raven and the fire burst.

Finn’s eyes flew open, and he expelled a gasp. Sitting up, he was shaking and covered in sweat. The aftershocks of the dream pulsated behind his eyes. What the hell was that? Breathing hard, he swung his legs to the side of the bed. Resting his elbows on his knees, he laid his head in his hands, as the two words seared into his mind. Release me.

About the Author:

Award-winning author, Jeny Heckman, was born in Bellingham, Washington, and was the youngest of two daughters. She met her husband, Jeff, in August 1992, and eloped three months later, at Magen’s Bay, on St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.
She wrote her first book, the Catch, in a few short months but took several years before she gained the courage to self-publish it at her son’s urging, and her love for writing began.

In 2018, Jeny knew her next project would be a series that showed adults could have adventures in the paranormal-fantasy genre too. So, she created the Heaven & Earth series, a story of doomed Greek gods and their only salvation, their modern-day descendants. Her first book of the series, the Sea Archer, was immediately picked up by the New York publishing house, the Wild Rose Press, and won, “Best in Category” from the 2018 Chanticleer International Book Awards.

In the year 2020, Jeny released, Dancing Through Tears, a short story from the anthology, Australia Burns: Volume Two, highlighting the Route 91 massacre from the perspective of one family at the concert, and at Mandalay Bay. She also intends to release, the Warrior’s Progeny, and Dee’s Cornucopia, in 2020, continuing the Heaven & Earth Series.

Jeny lives in Washington State with her husband of over twenty-eight years.
