Medusa in the Shadows

📚✨ Sneak peek at my work in progress!

I'm loving seeing this story come to life—the characters are taking on a life of their own.

I'm pretty invested at this point! Check out "Medusa in the Shadows," a young adult thriller with a kick-ass protagonist, Nova. Can't wait to share more soon! 🐍💥

Still high on adrenaline and pain, Nova grabs her dagger without thinking twice. "Don't touch me. No one touches me." She snapped at them. Everyone in Nathan's company was here. They were in workout gear, though from the look of it, they hadn't gotten to the workout yet. "Nova, what happened? How do you tear your stitches?" Nathan asks, stepping forward with his hands out. "Go away," Nova responded, holding the dagger up higher. "Nova," Nathan said softly, still moving closer. "How did you hurt yourself?" He asked again. "I was sleeping, and then I was bleeding. Go away," she replied. She tried to give him her best scowl, but it only hurt her head, so she stopped. "Did you have a nightmare question mark?" He asked, stepping closer again. "Fuck off. No one touches me." She snapped. "Not touching you, kid. Not going to hurt you. I just want to make sure you're all right. Can Anthony take care of that for you?" Nathan speaks softly, still slowly working his way closer to her. "No one touches me!" She snaps again. "Hey," Nathan says even softer. He was a few feet away from her now. He crouched onto the ground, putting him at a lower height – lower than her current level on the bed – making himself small to be less intimidating. "Nova looked at me." He is still speaking softly, holding his palms face up in an opening position on his knees. "I am." She snapped her hand around the dagger, gripping it much tighter than before. "No, you're looking at a lot of other stuff around the room right now. I need you to focus. Look at me." She forces herself to look only at Nathan, though her shoulders are tense now, not seeing where everyone else is in the room or what they are doing. "I'm going to ask a few of my teammates to leave. Okay?" He starts. Nova looks at him while he speaks and then turns to look at the others in the room again. "Hey, come on. Look at me." She turns her attention back to Nathan. "Anthony and Nicole, stay, please." He orders, never looking away from her. Nova jerks slightly when the door opens. She twists around to watch the others leave. "Hey, Nova. Look at me." She twists back to face him. "No one here is ever going to touch you without your say-so, and no one here is ever going to hurt you like that again. You have control here. Do you understand? We aren't going to do anything. Unless you say, it's okay first. You are safe here."

"Ms. Elder's book of poetry reminds us that pain exists, time doesn't always heal all wounds, and our actions impact others. Survivors need to continue to be seen, heard and believed. This body of work is real, raw, and sometimes difficult to read - yet it can bring perspective and clarity to those who feel they are alone in the throws of family dysfunction and addiction. This poetry collection should remind us that the first step in healing is to allow ourselves to feel and face those emotions head-on."

Joe Gast

"Snowflakes and Sorrows is a powerful journey through pain, suffering, and the struggle to heal. The poems are so real and raw that they hit hard. The poet's words are like snowflakes, beautiful but sharp, showing how words can both heal and hurt. It's a captivating collection that digs deep into emotions and life challenges; this book is a must-read. Prepare to be moved by its honesty and what is a reality for some."
