SPIDERS AND THRUMMING AND STRANGE BODY CHANGES, OH MY!
Starting today, KEYHOLE CONVERSATIONS will feature a new six-week series on authors reading a favorite scene from their book.
Our first award-winning writer, Hazel Hart, is an author of many talents who has five published books to her credit. She has selected a scene from Dark Side of the Rainbow, a chilling collection of short stories she co-authored with B. J. Myrick.
The story, Lady in the Dark, is about a woman who searches for answers to the strange changes within her body after an attack by a gigantic five-foot spider and uncovers covert government research gone wrong.
