Marc W. Johnson received his love of reading, movies, and all things horror and science fiction from his single mother, an avid reader and fan of both genres. Marc began writing early in high school, but life intervened and he had to break away from it for many, many years. Marc reconnected with his desire after his mother died when he found she had kept many of his short stories in a box in the garage, although they were stained and torn the writing bug had bitten him once again. Marc's love for horror and movies prompted him into screenplay writing, and over the next few years became good enough to enter a short screenplay contest: won it and sold it. This validation spurred him on to attempt a bigger challenge, a full feature screenplay. While writing the screenplay, and working on another, Marc continued writing short stories and poetry which led to his first publication "A Collection of Dark Short Stories and Poetry." Marc published his second book “LEGACY,” He continues to pluck out the horrors in his mind and bring them to the page.

According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
They look like an everyday family living an ordinary life. But beyond the edges of this peaceful farm, unimaginable forces of light and dark have been unleashed.

Those like Fallon, in possession of gifts, are hunted—and the time is coming when her true nature, her identity as The One, can no longer be hidden.

And when the time is right, she will take up the sword, and fight. For until she grows into the woman she was born to be, the world outside will never be whole again.
