About Melissa Algood
Melissa Algood is a true crime-obsessed dyslexic who read Helter Skelter and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in one sitting.
Although not at the same time.
Her hometown, Annapolis, inspired the setting of Everything That Counts, a coming-of-age story of a geek who yearns to be cool. The Greater Good series follows a bloodthirsty assassin and her ex-Navy S.E.A.L. handler; the three-book series has a body count which matches the make-out count. Her award-winning short fiction can be found in Everyone Dies: Tales from a Morbid Author. And she reimagined 2020 including superpowered twenty-somethings that are tired of being government experiments and are fighting back in the Enhanced Being Series which starts with The Girl in the Fog.
Melissa's moved over twenty times in her life, including California, Puerto Rico, and D.C., before making Houston her home. She's a hairstylist in the 'real' world and lives with her longtime love, Izzy, and Madame Bijou, their tuxedo cat.

Talitha is a twenty-five-year-old telepath that can read your mind, erase your memory, see your aura-and she's been on the run from the lab that created and continues to torture her for more than two years.
Jonas, the Originator, and creator of all Enhanced Beings is determined to replicate the formula for immortality to fully control the entire human race. All he needs is Enhanced Being 815, also known as Talitha, to fall in line and become one of his soldiers. The only problem is Talitha hates Jonas - not only for making her a freak, but for killing her boyfriend, Reed, who had the power to resurrect others, but not the ability to save himself.
Unable to find her way back to her mentor's enchanted manor, Talitha hides in Baltimore, but she's running out of hope and is even contemplating turning herself over to Jonas when she meets Carl - one of only two people in the world who have a blue aura. He agrees to lie for her, takes her home for a meal, and, after finding out who and what she is, he agrees to help Talitha reconnect with her mentor.
However, Talitha is surrounded by treachery, lies, and deceit - and by the time she finds out the truth, it may be too late.
