How dark can the dark be? What about the kind of dark where you see nothing, hear nothing, and remember nothing? Thatís where a young man finds himself, when suddenly he is discovered by Lord Umber and his friends, who are exploring by torchlight in the tunnels beneath a rumbling mountain. Given the name Happenstance Found, he is soon displaying some extraordinary talents. He can run incredibly fast, and jump impossibly high without seeming to tire. He never seems to require sleep. His eyes are a brilliant green, and he can see in the dark. But Hap, as he is soon nicknamed, has something else that none of his new companions has---an evil and implacable enemy who seems determined to pursue him to the far corners of the world. Will Hap and his new friends manage to escape from the nasty and persistant creature they call "the Creep"? And exactly what is the world in which Hap finds himself? Read Happenstance Found to find out.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face nominee, 2011)
