Getting right to the question on everyone’s mind, why did you marry Carolyn? It’s obvious you don’t love her.

That’s a stupid question. I did it ’cause she was a Dunsmorrest. Took the whole bunch of ’em down a peg or two.


Okay. Why was it so important to you, to use your words, “take them down a peg or two”?

Why not, gal? That clan has always thought they was better’un us Breckenships. From the first wagons that rolled into this place ’til now. I showed ’em in more ways than one they ain’t no better’un the rest of us’ns!


What do you think caused the accident that killed Carolyn’s parents?

Well, thar’s them that say I done it. All I can tell yuns is that car went off’n a the side of the mountain  and burnt up. That’s what killed ’em.


You said there are people who think you did it, and you didn’t exactly deny it. Why?

No need ta deny it. Yuns’ll think what ya want no matter what I say. That’s all I got to say ’bout that.


Okay, let’s move on. Were you surprised when Lorianna came back to the village?

I was. I thought that gal was long gone. I’ll tell yuns what surprised me most was her showin’ up with that boy. Who do’ya reckon that youngin’ belongs to?


I wouldn’t know, sir. Is it something that matters to you? The child’s father, I mean.

Yes! I think that boy is mine and they all been hidin’ it from me. That’s what I think, but it don’t matter what they do I’ll find out who his papa is.


Tell me, what did you think about Gabriel coming back to the village? 

I reckon he came back for his mama when his papa was sick. Leastways, that’s what folks been sayin’.  Don’t matter none ta me what he does ’til he comes ’round my place gettin’ my gal stirred up.


What does that mean, “gettin’ your gal stirred up”?

N’til he showed his mug ’round here again, she was perfectly fine with her life at the farm.


Do you really believe that Carolyn was fine with life as it was on the farm?

I do. Are yuns sayin’ she wasn’t?


No, no, I’m not saying anything of the sort. Let’s move on, shall we?

Be best we do.


One last question before we wrap this up.

Well, spit it out, gal. I’ve ’bout had enough of this.


Okay. Exactly how many bodies have you hidden on the mountain?

Where’d yuns get such a notion as that? I reckon ya been listenin’ to them people tellin’ tales in the village. That’s enough talkin’. I’ll be goin’ now.


Thank you for your time, Mr. Breckenship.

Rough Hewn II: Escape picks up the lives of Kilmservy Village’s most well-known citizens almost two hundred years after the village was settled by the Stuttshire and Breckenship families.

Life has changed a lot in the small mountain village since Oliver Stuttshire, Yule Breckenship and their families made the journey from the shores of North Carolina to the mountains of Tennessee. Some things never change, though. Good people tend to pass on their way of life to their children and grandchildren. All of whom go out into the world and try to make it better in their own way. The same can be said for people who are not so good. Those with evil in their hearts pass on that evil to the young ones. And if they are not strong enough to fight it, these children mimic the behaviors they’ve learned at home.

Some say it’s in the blood; that evil passes from generation to generation. In the case of the Breckenship blood line, it seems to be true. Each new generation of Breckenship men seem more monstrous than those who have gone before. If it’s true that evil endures in the blood and is passed on, than this family is the epitome of such evil. And, Jim Breckenship is the worst of the lot.

Jim’s wife, Carolyn, learns too late that whispers of her husband’s crimes are more than rumors. She must reconcile within herself the reasons she stays in the house with a monster. Additionally, she must alter her escape plan as Jim’s actions grow more abhorrent by the day, nay, the hour. Will she escape in time to save herself and her secret, or has she waited too long?

Nadia Kilrick is a Florida native who finds tranquility in the simple life of the Deep South. She believes there is no better place to contemplate life’s journey than sitting beside a slow moving creek shaded by mighty moss-draped oaks. It’s there that dreams burst free from within the chasms of the human heart.

Nadia has written fiction since childhood. The busyness of life and raising a family slowed the progress of her writing for two decades. When her children moved away, she began writing articles for the web. Her passion for fiction writing quietly stirred while writing articles related to gardening, family, self-sufficiency and do-it-yourself projects. Now she writes fiction full time. Thriller, suspense/mystery and paranormal are her favorite genres to write. When reading, she reaches for psychological thrillers, true crime, mystery/suspense, horror, paranormal, western and historical fiction.

Nadia is pleased to announce her debut short story, “Ziggy Returns: A Short Tale”, was published by Master Koda Select Publishing in August 2013. Kilrick’s “Rough Hewn: People of Kilmservy Village”, the first book in the Rough Hewn Trilogy, was released in September 2013. All titles are available at Amazon.com.
