Pyromaniac. Murderer. Burn out.
Ten years ago Delia’s life went up in smoke. Literally.
After a decade of hiding, she is forced back into the world.
With only her wits to guide her, she must now figure out how to live in a town that knows her only as a murderer.
Her family is gone. The people all fear her. She has nothing holding her in Sunny Shores...until she meets Liam.
He’s heard the stories. He knows he should stay away from her, but he’s drawn to her like a moth to a flame.
Life seems to be looking up for them...until her past comes back like a bitch slap to the face.
Readers meet the characters of Burn out:
20 years old
Born in Sunny Shores, SC
Has been locked away in Sunny Shores Psychiatric Hospital for 10 years.
Extremely saucy- her sharp tongue and quick wit have gotten her into trouble more times than she can count.
Likes: the ocean, sleeping late, chocolate milkshakes, and dipping her fries in a Wendy’s Frosty.
Dislikes: Creepy old dudes, pop music, salads (they’re the devil), and people who lie.
Favorite quote: “I wonder why it is, that young men are always cautioned against bad girls. Anyone can handle a bad girl. It’s the good girls men should be warned against.” – David Niven
Favorite Song: P!nk’s U + Ur Hand
24 years old
Born in Georgia, currently resides in Sunny Shores, SC
Has a deep love for Homer’s The Odyssey and The Iliad. Not Homer Simpson.
Recently found himself in a sticky situation involving murder, lies, and plenty of betrayal.
Likes: Reading, walking the beach at night, anything with Al Pacino, a good pizza filled with toppings, newfound love for The Simpsons, and his *special* coffee cup.
Dislikes: Being cooped up in the house, fighting, McDonald’s double cheeseburgers, and doing laundry…unless Delia was there.
Favorite Quote: “Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.” – Nido Qubein
Favorite Song: My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark- Fall Out Boy

Family is from Sunny Shores, but he spent most of his youth in Southern California.
Is proud of his surf shack, even if he barely makes it by. He hopes to one day be able to teach the next National Surfing Champion.
Likes: The smell of suntan lotion, motorcycles, Adam Lambert’s music, and playing detective (even better if he gets to wear the trench coat!)
Dislikes: Scam artists, video games (what a waste of energy!), fast food, cheap shoppers, and winter (no surfing!)
Favorite Quote: “Believe you can and you’re halfway there.” – Theodore Roosevelt
