Gretchen is a thriller that will also appeal to lovers of horror. It’s told primarily from the point of view of Lucy, a teen who has spent her life on the run with her mother. Lucy has always been resigned to her fate – changing states, changing schools, keeping secrets – but now she’s beginning to rebel.

As the book begins, Lucy and her mother relocate to house in the country outside a small town. Their new landlord, a concert pianist, and his daughter, Gretchen, welcome them, and despite their eccentricities, Lucy wants to stay. From there, the eccentricities and Lucy’s discomfort grow, and the story – a fascinating mystery – unfolds.

The pages of this tight and twisted tale flew by – I could hardly turn them fast enough. Highly recommended.

When literary writer Thad Beaumont’s cover is blown and the world finds out he’s been moonlighting as a crime writer under the pseudonym, George Stark, blackmail promptly ensues. Rather than caving to the blackmailer’s demands, Thad Beaumont decides to go public – and kill off George Stark himself. That’s when the pseudonym takes on a life of his own and begins an angry murderous spree …

The Dark Half exhibits King’s many artistic gifts: Excellent characters, unforgettable horror, witty dialogue, and the kind of plot that keeps you turning page after page. You can’t help but get the feeling that King was taking a little revenge of his own with this book – and that only adds to the intrigue. Writers and readers alike will love this book.

The Secret Life of the Movies is a colorful and entertaining treat for movie lovers. It includes little known trivia from movies ranging from the silent era to brand new films. There are lots of movies of every type included and I was especially pleased to see my favorite genre – horror – well represented.

From the well-known fact that Halloween’s Michael Meyers mask was a spray-painted Halloween mask of Captain Kirk to the little known fact that when Harold Lloyd famously hung from the arm of the clock on a skyscraper (well, 9 stories up in actuality) he was really hanging on with only his left hand – he wore a glove over his mostly missing right hand – the book is a wealth of trivia.

This is the kind of book that makes a perfect gift for movie lovers. It would be great on a coffee table or perfect as bathroom reading. It’s written with humor and is quite entertaining.

THE SILVER DAGGER is now available in ebook and paperback at Amazon.com!
Brother Against Brother
Life in Crimson Cove has been good to the Colter Brothers since Gretchen VanTreese was staked and her horde of vampires scattered. Brooks is once again human, and Cade, the rare Sire Gretchen had determined to take as her mate, is in love. Then the unthinkable happens: Gretchen rises from the grave, and the brothers are torn apart, their lives – and the peace between them – shattered.
A Trail of Blood
When Cade comes into possession of an ancient ceremonial dagger he awakens a power so deadly it defies comprehension. Meanwhile, a serial killer is stalking the little mountain town, leaving a trail of blood that leads to a truth Sheriff Ethan Hunter doesn’t want to face. And unknown to either of them, Gretchen is preparing to reopen her notorious nightclub, The Crimson Corset – and building an army to destroy her enemies and reclaim Cade Colter as her own. 

A New Breed of Evil

“Put Bram Stoker in a giant cocktail shaker, add a pinch of Laurell K. Hamilton, a shot of John Carpenter, and a healthy jigger of absinthe, and you’ll end up with Alistair Cross’s modern Gothic chiller, “The Crimson Corset” – a deliciously terrifying tale that will sink its teeth into you from page one.” – Jay Bonansinga, New York Times Bestselling author of THE WALKING DEAD: INVASION and LUCID

Stephen Chbosky’s second novel, IMAGINARY FRIEND, (coming October 2019) is the real thing. As I began reading this book I felt that thrill you get when you realize you’ve just discovered something brilliant. In fact, I felt a lot like I did the first time I picked up a Stephen King novel. It’s a big ambitious novel about a boy, a small town, and the supernatural terrors lurking all around him. It puts me in delicious mind of books like Summer of Night, Boy’s Life, and Something Wicked this Way Comes.
