Life for Maverick Maccone after high school hadn't exactly been going smoothly. The financial stress, the break-up, the job he wished he didn't need... to him, it was all a nightmare. But when his life comes crashing to an end with an unexpected death, Maverick wishes it all back after he's chased down into the corrupted city of Penumbra, where the lost souls of the afterlife are gathered, forced to work in order to pay of the karmic debt they accumulated while they were alive.
Ghost Penumbra is a work in progress novel originally written for the 2015 NaNoWriMo challenge. In Spring 2016, the project expanded into a exercise in creating detailed, greyscale watercolor paintings. Ghost Penumbra is a story used as a means to explore dark and mature themes about death and identity both in written and visual form.
