Entangled in Darkness is a fictional novel about a young woman and her family and their struggle to survive in the face of mental illness.

Annalyn Johanssen was moving out from home with her best friend and starting university for the first time. It was supposed to be an exciting time in her life. She saw herself as being on the road to success and hoped to one day see herself getting a Ph.D. and starting a prestigious career. University was just the first step in a long and happy life of success.
As much as she hoped to get away from the unhappiness of her adolescence, she soon found herself spiraling into darkness...




Excerpt

From Prologue
I remember when I was a child I almost drowned. It was a cloudy day in early spring when the flowers were just starting to bloom. I was twelve years old and I shouldnít have been standing on the slippery dock. But I liked watching the water on the lake. It had such a peaceful feeling to me. I would imagine myself swimming like a dolphin through the water, or a mermaid. The water streaming past my skin and an enchantment of underwater worlds seemed glorious to me. Maybe I was too old for such fantasies, but at the time I would have given anything to swim away and be part of something better. There was something mystical about the lake and nothing special about my life.

It was cold that day. It had been raining for months but as I stood there, I could see the spring sun trying to poke its head out from behind the clouds. There was a strong breeze that kept blowing the long strands of my dark-blonde hair into my mouth. But I didnít mind. The wind only made the lake seem more magical.

Something had drawn my attention to the end of the dock. I heard splashing and when I looked I could see rings where the water had been disturbed. The light shined against the water but when I peered into it I could see a dark shadow underneath the surface. I walked to the very end and suddenly I slipped and went crashing into the water. I felt shock at the rush of coldness over my body. I didnít have time to think about what had happened. There was no real thought, just survive.
