Me, Wicked and the Dark Angel by Francesca Quarto

"My story starts out with me, Wicked and the Dark Angel. But before I launch into my tale, let me say, here and now, Wicked is my mischievous baby sister.

A Little Laughter Can't Hurt Much by Francesca Quarto

Lying in the hospital bed was beginning to take a noticeable toll on his attitude. Unfortunately, I was his first visitor that morning after the nurse finished his bed bath, and removed the bedpan.

The Trench by Francesca Quarto

"I don't see how you can help save me from the gallows, Penbrook. My story has been recounted in every yellow rag... even turned into one of those cheap Penny Dreadful serials, I'm told. The publisher is just waiting for the last chapter to be written, when the trap door opens beneath my feet. All know of my crazed actions. They cost me everything
