Ann Simko Dark Crossings
Cross and Kale Delancey were born for one purpose; to be studied for their paranormal abilities. When Cross convinces his twin to escape from ‘The Department,’ he is shot. Blinded and separated from Kale, Cross’s memories are wiped. He is given a new life. A past in which he believes Kale is dead. With no memories of his life at The Department, this new Cross is safe, he is malleable. He can still be studies without the risk. His entire life is scripted and Kale is threatened with his safety unless he places nice and does what the department wants. Until ten years later, Cross begins to remember. The department brings him back in and all bets are off. Cross isn’t fourteen anymore. He’s pissed and he wants his brother back.
When not writing, Ann Simko works as a nurse at a level one trauma center. Her first novel Fallen was originally published in 2009, where it became the number one best seller for thrillers in her publishing house for almost a year. She writes thrillers, anything with a ticking-bomb type of plot, maybe with a wee bit of paranormal thrown in for fun.
She lives in rural Pennsylvania with her husband who puts up with her over active imagination, two scary teenagers who try to ignore her, three very large dogs, six cats and five extraordinarily large lawn ornaments otherwise known as horses.
