I try to pull out my name, but it doesn't come. I think harder, but it's hopeless. And then I find it: embroidered in neat, red lettering across the left chest of my shirt: DAMIAN. Damian? I ask the room and wait for its answer. The name looks up at me with stitched deliberateness, but it's as foreign as the stark whiteness around me. Damian? I run fingers over its fibers, and repeat. It's a stranger's name on my lips. In the face of imminent death, Damian is somehow alive. Clad in white cotton, he's the haunting image of a world he doesn't remember. But he will. Soon. His mom's there, and she promises clarity and safety with The Light. She promises they'll emerge to remake a world that's been lost. But her power over them all is unnerving, and when her plan for the Alpha becomes clear, Damian must decide between what's filling his head and a heart that beats something else.
Born and raised in rural Maine, Christopher grew up on an untraveled road in the middle of nowhere. No cable, no internet, not even streetlights: books and words became his closest friends, and he devoured anything he could get his hands on. Christopher eventually moved on to earn his degree in education and spent the next decade teaching middle school English. Since that time, words have commanded a newfound dominance over his world, and stories of his own now spill from his fingertips with an untamable ferocity. He currently lives and writes in San Diego, California, where his passion radiates from every keystroke. To learn more about him and his upcoming titles, please visit: www.christopherhoskins.com.
