Apparent Horizon

by Patrick Morgan

On the eve of his best friend’s wedding, Michael is warned by an old classmate, now a NASA scientist, that a gamma ray burst from a nearby exploding star will hit the Earth the following morning at 11:13 a.m. – an incident that will irrevocably destroy the ozone layer, disrupt the food chain, and ultimately prove cataclysmic for all life on the planet.

Michael and the groom-to-be, Drew, laugh off the prediction as a demented joke. However, at precisely 11:13 a.m. the next day, a blinding light in the sky disrupts Drew’s wedding. News media outlets dismiss the cosmic event as a harmless phenomenon, but Michael knows better. Wrestling with the burden of his truth, uncertain of how much time he has left or just what to do with it, Michael finds himself alienated from everything and everyone he’s ever known.

Under Drew’s influence, Michael begins to transform his rather mundane life, previously shackled by powerlessness and fear, into something more unrestrained and ultimately dangerous.

Bailey Donahue was supposed to stay dead… After witnessing her husband’s murder, Bailey’s been ripped from her life and secreted away in the Witness Protection Program. Too bad the sleepy town of Shadow Rock was the wrong place to hide.

Believed dead by the mafia, Bailey finds herself trapped in a torturous limbo, walled-off from her old life. But that’s where she must stay unless she’s willing to risk the lives of her eighteen-month-old daughter, or any of the other people Bailey loves most in the world.

Losing all hope, she tries to kill herself … Then wakes up in the hospital, more alive than ever. Now Bailey has a “gift”— she can paint portraits of events that haven’t happened… yet. Her first picture is of a drowning girl. She doesn’t know who or where the girl is, or worse, how to stop her prediction from coming true.

When two locals offer their help, Bailey feels like she must accept, even though her instincts are screaming that the pair of supposedly good Samaritans know too much about her.

Can Bailey find the girl and prevent a tragedy — without letting anyone know she’s still alive?
