Broken by Dean Skinner
A contemporary short story about the ageless battle between good and evil, Broken explores themes of self-doubt, darkness, and the supernatural, while weaving in elements of horror and hope. It’s an easy, quick paced narrative with an “Aha moment” ending. If you like M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense, you will love Broken.
Dale has it all by today’s standards. Good job, good looking, and recently single. He’s a hot-shot art director in the hottest ad agency in Cleveland. A big change from his roots in small town West Virginia. Yet, Dale is miserable and has no idea why, what, or who is influencing his happiness and ultimately, his destiny. There is war going on. The battlefield is Dale’s mind. The prize is his soul.
