Melanie S. Hatter

Author Melanie S. Hatterabout this book: Taking the Shot explores the fierce connection that a man and a woman can establish in the most challenging and severe conditions -- a bond that changes their perspectives. In the stark conditions of a rebel camp, Diana, a freelance photographer, develops a fierce bond with her protector and discovers a love she can't explain. Experiencing great fear and longing, Diana loses herself emotionally and is pushed beyond boundaries she never thought she would cross. Through her, Neil Stone rediscovers his humanity.

The story is about self discovery, loyalty, and the strength of human connection. It was inspired by the true stories reported in the news of hostages who suffered and survived the Colombian jungles. Published by Etopia Press in 2011, this e-book is considered a novelette – not quite long enough to be a novella, but too long to be a short story. Here's an excerpt: "The man who seemed to be in charge approached us, licking his lips, talking to his comrades and to us, although I understood nothing. I glanced at Rita hoping for an interpretation, but her face, directed at the ground, was hidden by her long hair. What was he saying? 'Please,' I said. 'Just let us go.' He came close to me and abruptly knocked me over, the flat of his boot thudding into my chest. My cheek hit the dust and air rushed out of me."
