Synopsis -

HANNAH AND OTHER STORIES is a collection of seven horror short stories that juxtapose good versus evil with a thin veneer between the world of the ordinary and the world of the strange.

Sometimes, one must search for the entrance of the strange and then walk into a world where the laws of reality and humanity have no meaning. Other times, people find the horrors in this strange world simply by going to a toy store, a sibling's home, or a party in the Paris catacombs. These seven horror short stories aim to take the reader on a twisted journey that will make the reader question their reality - of what's real and what's not.

The seven stories delve into ghosts, revenge, creepypasta legends, dissection, manipulation, deceit, carnivorous horses, extragalactic beings, occult summoning, and pandemics. Additionally, some characters represent the Jewish and LGBTQ+ communities.

Synopsis -

And Hell followed with her…

When sixteen-year-old Hannah Ramirez is found confused and bleeding in the quiet town of Riverbend, Sheriff Brady Crowe figured she was just another runaway.

But Hannah has a secret. A dark and terrible secret that is growing stronger by the hour.

Hunted by a team of savage mercenaries, Hannah’s last hope rests with the small-town sheriff and her handful of terrified deputies. Outgunned and surrounded, Sheriff Crowe is forced into a corner, but she has a secret too: She’s more than just some small-town sheriff.

A lot more.

Synopsis -

In the aftermath of an apocalyptic event that sets the world ablaze, Caleb and Nivitha find themselves thrown into a harsh, unforgiving new reality. They must face their fears, adapt to the dangers of their environment, and decide whether to trust others or isolate themselves.

Caleb, social by nature, quickly makes a new group of friends among the survivors.

Nivitha, determined to protect her younger sister Asha, guards herself against the remaining humans, regarding them as potential threats.

They both soon learn just how cruel this new world can be. Between murder, torture and hunger, uncertainty is the only constant.

Synopsis -

Sarah, an Asian-American college student moves into Sunnycrest Apartments because it’s a rare, affordable place. Strange things show up in her closet that don’t belong to her. Stranger still, they seem to come from the past. With the help of her psychiatrist, the girl she’s dating, and the quirky gay boy she met at a restaurant, Sarah realizes that her closet is actually a gateway to another time. Another world. A place where the same apartment belonged to the boyfriend of the final murder victim of a notorious serial killer that was never caught.

Sometimes the doorway takes her to another floor in the building, to the apartment the girl herself—Regina—lived in on the 11th floor, the apartment where the murder actually happened, but it always takes her to 1987. The two people connected to her through the gateway in her closet are the owners of the initials carved into the tree out in front of Sunnycrest.

Sarah’s girlfriend, Felicia, has been at Sunnycrest longer and helps her to understand that the whole building is haunted.

There is something strange about the place they live.

The dead are everywhere and some of them are dangerous. The living are not to be trusted, either. Sarah gets drawn in further and can’t let go. She wants to understand what Regina’s spirit is trying to tell her, what she needs, and how to turn her closet back into a closet. One thing she needs to remember though, is that there is a killer in 1987.

Can he still hurt her? Is any of it even real? Where will the gateway in Apartment 8 actually lead her?
