****Recommended for readers 18+**** Imagine watching your Father die in front of you because two men were sent to take you. The two men were sent by Roman Murphy, the boss of Hunter Inc. The sole job of Hunter Inc is to train and produce assassins. Anna Brookes, a 15 year old girl with a love and panache for precision and handling of weapons was sort out by Hunter Inc. One evening she encounters Lukas, a man she saves but a man who ultimately goes on to save her. The months that follow see Anna's intuition heightened and defined. She is forced to deal with techniques that no ordinary 15 year old girl should ever encounter in their lives. Anna Brookes - In Training picks up from the moment she killed Damon and Nox in HiT 149. “I’ll agree that you, Anna, are not ordinary at all. You are simply… extraordinary” ~ Lukas

About the AuthorI love to read. I'm a huge fan of books and when I start reading anything, I usually forgo doing everything else, I mean the housework will still be there in the morning (right?). When I love a story or book that I've downloaded, I usually refrain from sleep and am crabby the next day - but only until I pick my iPad up and start reading again! The idea for my debut novel HiT 149, came to me as I was chopping my vegetables for dinner and before the night was over I had written 10 chapters! My goal with writing is just to take people away from whatever is going on in their lives, even if it's only for a split second. I'm a go with the flow sort of person and don't really take a course of action to get where I am going. I live in the moment and don't usually worry about tomorrow because whatever life is due to bring me, I'll be happy to accept. I love my family and friends and will help anyway I can if someone needs it. But I can be a bit daft sometimes and need to be told very specifically or it'll go over my head! I really don't like people that are nasty just because they can be, I don't believe that's necessary, I mean life is hard enough as it is. I hope you enjoy my books, I've had a hoot writing them. There's more to come, and not all from the same series... Til next time

ExcerptFuck. I just killed two people. I look down at my hands and they are shaking. Am I shaking or is it because it’s cold outside? It’s the early hours of the morning and I’ve put a bullet in Damon and Nox’s head. My gaze tries to look around but all I see is black. No cars approaching. Just the abandoned vehicle with two bodies pulled up towards the break down lane. I try to focus but there is this knot in my stomach; it feels like it’s travelling up towards my throat. I feel the Birthday cupcake that Dad had for me starting to make its way north, back into my mouth. I’m not sure I can hold onto it. My breath is hitched and it feels like my heart is going to implode. If I die here on the road, no one will be able to claim me. Everyone important to me is dead. Dad - Henry. Is it raining? What can I feel? I look up and the sky is black and cloudless. It’s not raining. I touch my face to where the wetness is; my brain is in neutral, not going anyway. I stand on the same spot for I don’t know how long but it seems like I’m starting to see through the smokiness and haze that is surrounding my conscious. I close my eyes and try and calm myself. The bile that is threatening to make an appearance is starting to recede. Deep breath in through my nose and out through my mouth. My mind is clearing up. The hair on my arms is starting to stand to attention and the feeling of imminent doom is close by. My feet are trying to save themselves, and me. They have started running, not towards my old home that now lays in burning embers but away from it. I need to run and start a new life, but with whom? I have no one I can go to. Maybe a school friend? No one. Maybe a teacher? No not even them. I’m not going to become a ward of the state I need to fight for myself now. Where will I go? What can I do? With limited money I’ve taken from a now deceased Damon and Nox, but with no clothes, no food, no home and no one who loves me. Fuck me. What the fuck am I going to do?
