Essel Scott Pratt
Essel Pratt is a purveyor of horror and fantasy, conjuring tales that haunt souls and inspire imagination. As a student of psychology and teller of tales, Essel writes to share the complex nature of his imaginings with the world. His ever-expanding catalog of short stories spans multiple anthologies and collections, ranging from whimsical fantasy to bizarre horror, including everything in between.
Dedicated fans have praised his creations, labeling his talents as prolific in substance.Hailing from Mishawaka, Indiana, his passion for writing began in the early years as his imagination taunted from within, begging for a release. Dabbling in art at first, he found that the stories that pleaded to be told could not be imprisoned by ink and paint alone. His most notable and prevalent accomplishments include Final Reverie, Sharkantula, and the multiple short stories that have garnered a following of their own, such as the adventures of Detective Mansfield.
Inspired by C.S. Lewis, Clive Barker, Stephen King, Harper Lee, William Golding, and many more, Essel doesn't restrain his writings to straight horror, instead exploring the blurred boundaries of horror within its competing genres, mixing the elements into a literary stew.
This book is meant as a warning... Not an instruction manual. Before we begin, let me tell you it is illegal to be overweight. Still with me? Good, now not only is it illegal to be overweight, but now all fast and junk food has been outlawed. If you are between the ages of eight and twenty-nine, and not following the law, you will be sent to a government run weight-loss camp. Trust me, this is not a camp you want to go to. Twins Jenn and Will have been hiding very well, they grew up in a state run facility and ran away before anyone could send them to camp. Unfortunately, they could only run for so long. They have been caught and sent to camp. They never imagined just how bad life could get until they met Major, a sadistic man who runs the camp they're sent to. What horrors do they see? Can they get out alive? You'll have to read to find out their fate.
