Russell R. James was raised on Long Island, New York and spent too much time watching Chiller, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, and Dark Shadows, despite his parents’ warnings. Bookshelves full of Stephen King and Edgar Allan Poe didn’t make things better. He graduated from Cornell University and the University of Central Florida.

After a tour flying helicopters with the U.S. Army, he now spins twisted tales best read in daylight.

His wife reads what he writes, rolls her eyes, and says “There is something seriously wrong with you.”

He has published the novels DARK INSPIRATION, SACRIFICE, BLACK MAGIC and DARK VENGEANCE, the compilations OUT OF TIME and TALES FROM BEYOND, as well as numerous short stories. He founded the Minnows Literary Group.

Sarah,
I often have dreams like the character Pete does, very vivid with recurring story lines that cross many nights.I wondered what would happen if someone found out his dreams were actual visits to somewhere else, another plane of existence. I don't remember where the voodoo inspirations came from, except that I've always found them really creepy.

I'm glad you are enjoying the audio version. David Stifel is a splendid narrator and also did my novel Dark Inspiration.
