Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
From the same author who brought readers The Story of St. Patrick's Day comes a suspenseful work of fiction filled with power and mystery. Natasha Carr-Harris’ The Eyes follows a young girl who is forced to come to terms with her unspeakable destiny.
When twelve-year-old Claudia Smith stepped into the school grounds that year, she never thought her life would turn out the way it had. Nanaimo Elementary School’s meanest bully, George Flo, picked Claudia to be his annual victim, asking not only for her wits in school, but for her soul as well. Running away from him, she encountered a terrible car accident. But that was merely the beginning. After her hospitalization, Claudia was visited by horrid dreams – deaths of her loved ones – all which took place days after. The only clue she had was a pair of bloodthirsty, murderous red eyes that would appear in her nightmares, telling her to join. Now, she must find out what her connection is to the murderer and do what she must before all her loved ones are killed.
Leaving readers hooked from the first page to the last, The Eyes is a spine-chilling story that speaks to audiences ranging from young adult to adult readers. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.
About the Author
Natasha Carr-Harris has been a devoted and passionate reader since she was little. Her reading interests encompass both classic and contemporary literature. She was 9 years old when her first poem was published by the Poetry Institute of Canada in 2007. Since then, 7 more poems and 5 short stories have come out. However, her biggest writing feat was when she published her first novel, “The Story of St. Patrick’s Day” when she was 11, in which she was the youngest writer in the 3-Day Novel Contest held in Vancouver in 2009. The contest included participants from twenty countries. “The Eyes” was written for the 2010 3-Day Novel Contest, where she was also one of the youngest entrants. She was subsequently interviewed by the Vancouver Sun Newspaper for “The Story of St. Patrick’s Day” and reported as an “excited young writer”. Natasha believes that her writing talent springs from her spare-time interests in table tennis, ballet, piano, public speaking and debating all of which help her become more creative. Since 2008, she has won five medals from the Canadian National Table Tennis Championships. She was also a delegate of the 2010 Miss Canada Teen Global pageant, where she won the award for “Top Promotions” as well as getting in the top 5 for “Fundraising” and top 3 for the “Photogenic”. Recently, she obtained a 4th place medal in a National Open-age Poetry Contest that received thousands of entries all over Canada.
