In the real world, the wave of a wand will not rectify inequalities or manifest repentance.

Ride along the rails of uncertainty with When You Leave This Way, a story of heartache unlike the glitzy fare of today's contemporary literature. The first book in the Unfairytale Series, Leave is set within a world beyond the boundaries of Hollywood-themed dystopia: That of reality. The dehumanization of a tormented child fuses with a cryptic discovery that saw his innocence, his world, and his hold on childhood fall into ruin. A hitherto unknown piece of information is kept from the young Brandon Wright, encompassing a bizarre series of events that claims four victims--one atrocity orchestrated by Brandon's own hand. Led by convictions and fear, Brandon, his siblings, and his friends go on the run, to escape the realities of the night. The result is a descent into decadence, spiraling downward from poverty, encounters with predators, and a chance meeting with an enigmatic man who presents them all with what he dubs the proverbial perfect crime.

Brandon's quest for atonement becomes a personification of grave peril: The harder he tries to seek answers, the more everything collapses. With destitute conditions and a weighty conscience, Brandon finds out that he left childhood behind, stealing it from those in his company. Fans of the late V.C. Andrews (Flowers in the Attic, Seeds of Yesterday) owe it to themselves to visit the world of Brandon Wright--the boy whose biggest enemy is himself. Life has taken its bitter turn, and When You Leave This Way, there is no retrogression: when it's lost, it's gone forever.

Wearing abnormalities like a badge of honor, Randy L. Pendleton has an unbridled imagination. Born in Athens, Ohio circa 1983, Randy showed promise with his vivid, unwavering wordplay and a sense of humor often described as wry/wicked. His earlier attempts at a writing career were truncated following a diagnosis of neurofibromatosis type two (NF2) at the age of sixteen. Despite bilateral deafness and paralysis in his face and right hand, he continues on the alchemy of building a career utilizing his writing skills, with the pursuit of recognition in his eye--for himself and for the entire disabled community.
