Title: Who is Audrey Wickersham?
Name: Sara Shrieves
Dear Guest Judges,
Fifteen-year-old Audrey Wickersham loves books, horror movies and anything supernatural, and she’s finally decided to try her first spell. She heads to her favorite hangout, The Magick Eye, to find the perfect one. She encounters Agnes, the old Gypsy who offers to create a custom spell for her. Audrey is thrilled until she encounters an ancient yet totally disgusting parasite called the Zomorwai.While messing with the jar they are contained in, a warning shout from Agnes causes her to spill the creatures, allowing them to invade and attack her system.
When she begins to forget basic words in her vocabulary—even what her cat is—she must tell her overly protective yet devoted father what happened. Their only solution is to confront Agnes, but when they discover that Audrey is becoming a zombie, they will try any spell Agnes can come up with to stop it. Audrey’s eccentric neighbor volunteers his skills as a nurse, and her best friend proposes an alternate solution in secret. The only problem is she would still have to die.
But Audrey holds a secret of her own. She’s developing a taste for humans, and those closest to her are in the most danger. She must decide quickly. Will she go with magick, or death?
WHO IS AUDREY WICKERSHAM? is a young adult horror/paranormal novel with elements of comedy, complete at 64,000 words. It can be opened to a series, and I have already begun writing the second book.
Thank you so much for this opportunity!!
