About Kris

Kristen Selleck is avidly evil.  Until recently, she listed her profession as 'mad scientist'.  After several diabolical attempts at world domination proved unsucessful (most notably, building an army of robots from used pipettes, empty reagent boxes, and other things left lying aound the lab), she decided to pick up the pen.  She used the pen to poke an annoying lady at the gas station in the eyeball.  Then she decided to write.  She has been known to speak with a strong Russian accent.  This is inexplicable due to the fact that she was born in Detroit.  It has also been documented that she likes vodka, roller coasters, things which are purple, and blowing things up with dry ice.  She abhors kittens, wood paneling popularized in the 1970's, and her arch-nemesis Jimmy (the Evil Overlord of Specimen Processing).  She was last known to reside in Grand Rapids, and may be in the company of two evil apprentices, and her devoted henchman, Shad.  If seen please contact the FBI immediately (she owes someone in accounting a sandwich).

 Across the country, hidden in plain sight, are the forgotten remains of a once-great psychiatric movement: the asylum. These crumbling castles all share a common appearance and history. They inspire curiosity, fear, and even a few urban legends.

Chloe Adams came to Birch Harbor, a small college town in the U.P., to escape the stigma of mental illness. Her new roommate Sam Klingeman, came to drink her weight in vodka and find a hot guy with a trust fund. Between Chloe's developing relationship with campus hockey hero and floor RA, Seth Maird, trying to be the voice of moderation for Sam, and her new position as teacher's assistant for the eccentric Dr. Willard, she's stayed busy enough to keep the past firmly behind her.

But the voices return...and this time, she's not the only one that can hear them.

The beautiful old dormitory she lives in is hiding a secret. A secret that will uncover a dark plot 200 years in the making. Will Chloe be able to hold onto the new life she's worked so hard to build, will she relapse into a world of her own making, or will she, perhaps, fulfill the legacy she was born into?
