Games Children Play
We look at children with a kind of nostalgia and hope. In them we see our futures and ourselves. We read them stories about magic and we long for the days when we too still believed.
What we don't long for though is the rawness of childhood, the monsters in the closet, the fear of the dark...
For Ariel's Aunt Ella, the more she gets in touch with her inner child, the more the monsters that only children can still see start slowly creeping from the shadows and into the light.
"We're in... territory [of] mystery and mysterious places... We and the characters seem to move across boundaries, real ones involving the landscape, and emotional ones, where the lines between dream, fantasy, and reality get blurred..." -Leslee Becker, Author and Professor.
Karl Pfeiffer is an aspiring novelist, journalist, paranormal investigator, lecturer, college student, and ghost hunter at the Stanley Hotel. Forever a romantic, he can't resist those things dark, epic, and mysterious, and this comes through in his writing as he explores the extremes of human emotion, where the edges fray, and what happens when the world breaks down.
Karl carries a strong web presence, and can be followed on twitter and facebook through his website www.KarlPfeiffer.com
