Patient Twenty-nine.

A monster roams the halls of Soothing Hills Asylum. Three girls dead. 29 is endowed with the curse…or gift of perception. She hears messages in music, sees lyrics in paintings. And the corn. A lifetime asylum resident, the orchestral corn music is the only constant in her life.

Mason, a new, kind orderly, sees 29 as a woman, not a lunatic. And as his belief in her grows, so does her self- confidence. That perhaps she might escape, might see the outside world.

But the monster has other plans. The missing girl's share one common thread...each was twenty-nine's cell mate.

Will she be next?

Born and raised in western Pennsylvania, Brynn Chapman is the daughter of two teachers. Her writing reflects her passions: science, history and love—not necessarily in that order. In real life, the geek gene runs strong in her family, as does the Asperger’s syndrome. Her writing reflects her experience as a pediatric therapist and her interactions with society’s downtrodden. In fiction, she’s a strong believer in underdogs and happily-ever-afters. She also writes non-fiction and lectures on the subjects of autism and sensory integration and is a medical contributor to online journal The Age of Autism.

Other Books by the Author


How long does it take you to write a book?
It typically takes 9 months from start to finish--that said I work a day job. I usually complete two books per year--am able to work on two at once...dont know if I could juggle a third. ;)

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I think all writers are quirky.  I think all my characters are out of the mainstream. They just want to carve out their own tiny slice of happiness in their horrible, terrible realities I concoct for them.  

Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
Abnormal science and history. With a dash or dollop of fantasy--though even that is more likely to be rooted in quantum physics than from a purely fictional etiology.

What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?
How addictive it is. It is cliche...but the very essence of a cliche is that others can relate to it--that if you are a have to write. No kidding. I have tried to stop. #failed

What do you think makes a good story?
They say there are character driven and plot driven books. Don’t get me wrong, I love a twisted, complicated tale as much as M Night Shyamalan, but if you give me strong characters and just sit them down with something as mundane as having tea….I’m there. With popcorn.
 The heaven is when those two concepts marry and bring forth a tale with both--with literary DNA-gold.  

What would you like my readers to know?
That I truly love books as much as they do. And my characters step out of my head. Like my fiction or not, I have never had a reader complain they were cardboard cut outs i was moving about the page. 
 They have dreams, desires and fears--just like you.
