Thomas had retrieved the knife and stalked towards Cailin. It was now or never. Ashley ran up behind him, calling his name. "Thomas, wait!" When he turned to look at her, Ashley sprayed him in the eyes with pepper spray. If she weren’t so terrified, she would have thought the expression on his face was comical. Ashley used all her might to push her flattened palm into his previously broken nose, breaking it one more time. Blood poured from his nostrils and with his eyes swollen shut, he was going to be easy to take down. He was walking in circles with his arms spread outwards, trying to find her, and calling her all sorts of nasty names. Ashley stayed cautiously behind him, trying to decide her next move. Whatever it was, she needed to move quickly and she needed to incapacitate him so she could get Cailin out of here. Spying a good-sized rock laying at her feet, Ashley hoisted it over her head with both hands and brought it crashing down on Thomas' skull, sending him falling hard to the ground. She nudged him with her foot to be certain he was unconscious.
“He should be out for a while, but we need to get out of here now,” she said, talking to herself.
Shaking and nauseous, Ashley ran to Cailin's side. His eyes were open and though in obvious pain he gave her a reassuring grin.

Jennae was born and raised a New England girl, just outside of Boston, Massachusetts, where her imagination was always bigger than she was. Her large, extended Irish and Italian families were a great source of support, inspiration and humor. Laughter, love and food were never hard to find in her home. Jennae grew up surrounded by nostalgic, historical landmarks, which fed her love of history and creative writing.
She has worn many hats over the years. From owning her own typing service and horse training/boarding facility, to operating an embroidery/t-shirt business, her entrepreneurial spirit was strong and thriving. Determined to do something she truly loved, her vivid imagination took over again and she decided to follow her literary dream of writing stories that tapped into her love of magnificent people and places.
Jennae now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, where they’ve raised two beautiful and talented children. Along the way they’ve gathered a menagerie of pets, including one dog, three cats and 4 chickens to make the family complete.
