My latest obsession

I know...I know for the last few years I have been quiet, but yes, I am still writing. My time these days is limited, so this latest novel is taking me a bit longer to push out. I can't wait to wrap the story up. I'm three fourths of the way done. This new world of witches, covens, fates, the devil and magic is absolutely fascinating. Check out the sneak peek:

The room was cast with dark shadows created by the silver gleam of the moon.  I could make out a vanity and mirror adjacent to the bed. Shuffling and footsteps came from the other side of the door. A bright yellow beam shone through the crack on the bottom. Whispered voices disrupted the quiet. Shadows blocked the beam of light as someone grab the door handle.
I clenched the side of the bed and propped myself up on my good elbow. Please God let it be my parents. The knob turned and three manly shadows entered. I held my breath. One flicked the lights on.

I gasped at the sight of the three guys from earlier. My hands shielded my eyes as they adjusted to the brightness. I scrambled to get myself out of bed and panicked when I couldn’t stand because of my condition. The pain in my right foot was crippling. I fell to the floor with a cry of agony. I clutched my calf trying to squeeze the ache away. As the guys moved toward me I crawled backward into a corner.  Like a caged animal at the zoo they stared at me. I began to cry.
