Arabella Holmes was born different and raised different. After it became apparent she wouldn’t fit the role of a proper 1900′s lady, her father, Sherlock, called in some lingering favors, and landed her a position at the Mutter Museum. The museum was Arabella’s dream; she was to become a purveyor of abnormal science. What her father called a BoneSeeker.
Henry Watson arrives at the Mutter Museum with a double assignment–to become a finder of abnormal antiquities and to watch over and keep Arabella Holmes. An easy task, if he could only get her to speak to him instead of throwing knives in his general direction.
But this is no time for child’s play. The two teens are assigned to a most secret exploration, when the hand of a Nephilim is unearthed in upstate New York. Soon, Arabella and Henry are caught in a fight for their lives as scientific debate swirls around them. Are the bones from a Neanderthal … or are they living proof of fallen angels, who supposedly mated with humans according to ancient scrolls?
Sent to recover the skeleton, they discover they are the second team to have been deployed and the entire first team is dead. And now they must trust their instincts and rely on one another in order to survive and uncover the truth.

10 Tips for Becoming a Better Writer
These are completely subjective to Brynn Chapman. Your mileage may vary.
1. Join a professional writer’s organization. Network with pro’s. Listen. Reciprocate on any favors you can.
2. Pay it forward—once you make any progress, mentor others who were once in your shoes.
3. Take a Margie Lawson Course. That woman changed my life. ;)
4. Read Robert McKee’s STORY. I don’t care if it’s for screenplays, it will pummel your brain into writerly submission
5. Stephen King’s ON WRITING.
6. Get a critique partner who gets your voice, your writing, and who can not only cheerlead and hand hold, but kick butt as well.
7. Learn your craft. Refine your craft, every stinking year lol.
8. Learn your lingo and structure of query, synopsis, blurb etc.
9. Don’t query too early.
10. READ. Don’t ever stop reading, no matter how busy you are. You were a reader before a writer—and you should never ever give that up.
