Screams You Hear

Murder and madness infect a small town

For sixteen-year-old Ruthie Stroud, life on tiny Hemlock Island in the Pacific Northwest is an endless sea of boring green, in a place where everybody knows everybody's business and nothing ever happens. Then her world is ripped apart when her parents divorce and a new man enters her mother's life. But worse is yet to come.



When she drifts ashore on the mainland, hideously burned, Ruthie has a harrowing tale to tell. It begins with the murder of a family. It ends with her being the sole survivor of a cataclysm that sweeps her little island. As a detective attempts to unravel Ruthie's story of murder and madness, only one horrifying conclusion can be drawn: whatever was isolated on remote Hemlock Island may now have come to the mainland. Is Ruthie safe? Is anyone?

When her father moves the family to Scotland so they can all start over, Riley believes her life couldn't get worse--that is until the ghost of nineteen-year-old Ian MacKinnon catches her purposely cutting herself. An uneasy truce quickly turns into friendship, and soon Riley's falling hard for Ian. Riley believes her gift could help Ian end the curse that has kept him tied to the land for centuries, but that would mean letting him go forever and she's not sure she is strong enough to do that. As if her life wasn't complicated enough, the malevolent spirit of the woman who killed Ian returns and she'll stop at nothing to keep Riley from helping Ian find eternal peace.

Jack Erikson doesn't have great expectations when his mother moves them to an old decrepit inn in a town just as musty, but he's unprepared for the oddities that start springing out of the rotten woodwork. New friends introduce him to legends and rumors that have swirled around the inn since time-immemorial, and he finds plenty of proof to believe them as strange noises and twisted shadows stalk the halls. Worst of all, his estranged grandfather has invited himself to join them at the inn. Creepy doesn't begin to describe that black-cloaked gentleman with the pale skin and weird, ever-constant glasses. Old secrets, mysterious sealed-up rooms and creeping shadows abound as Jack tries to manage his new life at Hawthorn Inn. Hawthorn Inn is the first in a five novel horror/supernatural thriller series featuring Jack Erikson, a normal teenager with not-so-normal secrets.

Fantasm: Horror Fiction (real killer Book Book 2)

As she fell through the air, Claire reassured herself the fall would not be enough to kill her and that the real killer would find her fast enough. But once she hit the ground, she laid there, numb and motionless, pools of red hot blood accumulating all throughout her body. As she knew the blood loss was too much to recover from, she recalled everything about the incident that consumed her every waking moment. The petrified look on her friends faces, their chokes of pain and desperation, the slight hint of almonds in the air.

Almonds...?

She scent of almonds suddenly triggered a new memory, unlocked it. She remembered smelling it in the party. Where exactly? She struggled to pinpoint the exact moment she smelled the hint of almonds. Suddenly, an image began to resurface behind her closed eyelids - the bottle of poison.

Hydrogen cyanide gave off the slight hint of almonds. Claire now remembers glancing at the poison as she searched for a weapon to use against Rev, how she knocked the bottle over while grasping for her bag for a can of pepper spray. She remembers it spilling across the ground and seeping into the pool but she was too disoriented to notice and too preoccupied to warn her friends. She realizes she killed them by accident, in the attempt to save them. Claire felt like her entire world was collapsing down on her, spiraling into her and smashing into her being. I killed them, Claire thought to herself. The autumn leaves blew around the crisp air, floating softly and slowly, as if to pay tribute to the tragedy below them.

"I am so sorry." She whispered.

Claire felt as if this was the proper end. Perhaps this ending was the only way to do justice to what she had done. And so she stopped fighting. Slowly, but surely, she fell deeper and deeper into unconsciousness, as her eyelids struggled to keep open and her vision began tunneling. Suddenly, she was snapped back from her peaceful departure into awareness, as she heard a rustle in the leaves, then footsteps.

"How could you do this to me, dear Claire?" A liquid soft voice crooned from a distance.

She thought she was simply imagining things, hearing voices. Perhaps she had already entered the next life, and this voice was not real. But the sudden shadow that covered the light pouring from the lampshade proved Claire otherwise. There was definitely a dark figure standing right above her head - a man.

"If I wanted you to die quick and easy, I would have pushed you out that building myself. Instead I felt you deserved a more... dignified end. But we don't always get what we want, or what we deserve, do we? We don't get our happy endings because after all...

This is reality."

The Child of Mystery (Chains of Darkness Book 1)



The clock is ticking, and time is running out...NOT ALL THINGS BOUND IN CHAINS SHOULD BE FREEDTime for Melinda is fast running out. Time for her to make her escape. And time to make a daring rescue.

From the Publisher that brought you popular short story series Witching Call, Hostile Hearts, Earthbound Angels, The January Morrison Files Psychic Series, Ralph's Gift, Children of Time, Chains of Darkness, Tropical Storms and Friend Zone...

The only thing fifteen-year-old Melinda has been thinking about ever since she found out that she was betrothed to a man twice her age was how to escape the madness of the cult she had been trapped in. But escape seems easier said than done, especially since Melinda is being kept under the watchful eyes of her Uncle, an Aunt who never seems to sleep, and the Elders.

Melinda has the unique ability to see things no one can, like Angels and, once one Halloween, a demon. Her power also allows her to see a boy named Caleb, who isn't really a boy but has the fading aura of an Angel, get captured by the Elders. Kept in chains and tortured, Caleb's agonizing cries are a constant reminder of why she must get as far away from the cult as she can. She must escape, and soon, but not without trying to rescue Caleb.

Does Melinda have the power to not only save herself, but to save Caleb? And if she can save him, has she saved an angel... or a demon?

EXCERPT"What's with the angel, anyway?" Gabe asks, watching her as she smooths the jagged fringe of her hair.

"You can see them, too?" That's the other reason she likes him so much. When she told him that she could see them, he didn't automatically say that she was crazy, like so many other people did. He merely nodded, and listened. He didn't believe her, not then. But he does now.

"No, but I kinda assumed, after what happened last night," he says, leaving the sentence unfinished. He leaves the bathroom . She keeps snipping, concentrating on keeping her hand steady.

"Um, Melinda?"

"Yeah?"

"Where is he?"

She feels a lump form in her throat, and fights back a wave of nausea as she goes to confirm what she's inexplicably terrified about: the bed where Caleb was curled up on is empty. The silvery aura, the wall of flames--she doesn't exactly believe in being able to see the future, but right now, she has a very bad feeling that something terrible is going to happen.

Dark Arts

Maxwell, a guitarist whose band is coming off the road under discouraging circumstances, has come to a crossroad. The minimal success his band, Road Craft, has had is being smothered by an era where bars are becoming discos, and live entertainment is being replaced by larger dance floors. They scored a small record deal years before, but the excitement has cooled, and they never got much radio play. The only hope he has of financing his future rests in a book he hunted down using contacts and skills he learned from his father, who was an expert at acquiring rare occult objects. Max is not a believer in mysticism, but he knows what he has was hard to get, and should be worth thousands. When he's told it's too hot to sell, his dreams are crushed, and his wallet is left empty. He'll have to tell his band mates that his plan has fallen through, and they have come to the end of the road. The members of Road Craft are set to return home during a Pagan summer festival called The Gathering, where hundreds of people gather to celebrate music, nature, and each other. The Gathering also puts him nose to nose with Miranda, a woman Maxwell knew when they were children, a veteran of the New York Rock scene and his equal. He doesn't know it yet, but this is the event that will make him a believer in the occult, and he will have some choices to make. All the while, there are people who know he has the book, and they are determined to twist the knowledge it contains to a terrible purpose, to break the circle of life, making resurrections possible, to open the door between the living and the dead just enough to embrace forbidden power. Their selfish intent would disrupt the natural order enough to change the world, and not for the better. Maxwell's music career is about to be the least of his worries.
