Leslie Parrish
“She closed her eyes briefly, feeling sick. Olivia had experienced strangulation before. Having to look directly into the face of the person who was killing you made the experience beyond awful. But there were worse things than that. Staring into the void of unresolved memory, living an eternal mystery, waking up night after night seeing the face of someone you desperately wanted to save but having not the slightest clue how to do it—all that was worse. If going through with this experience gave her the answers she needed, if it gave her peace, it would be well worth one-hundred-and-thirty seconds of fear and pain.”
Leslie Parrish, Cold Touch

“Tough tims never last but tough people do..”
Robert A. Schuller

― John Connolly - Nocturnes

“Several Terminal Policy readers got together to tell Raker jokes:
- Raker CAN piss into the wind.
- Raker donates a lot of blood to the Red Cross -- just never his own.
- Superman wears Raker pajamas.
- When Raker jumps into the pool, he doesn't get wet -- the pool gets Raker.
- Why did the chicken cross the road? Because Raker THREW her there!!
- Raker's daughter lost her virginity ... he got it back.
- Raker doesn't cheat death, he wins fair and square.
- Raker turns on a light at night … not because he's afraid of the dark but because the dark is afraid of him.
- When the boogy man goes to bed he checks under his bed for Raker.
- Don’t tread on Raker’s cape!”

J. Alexander Greenwood
“The professor’s motive was in the grand scheme of things terribly petty ” Greenwood said. “"Pilate’s Cross" is inspired by the questions this terrible crime created but as a work of fiction it is set in a different place and time and has a more complex motive for the murders.”
J. Alexander Greenwood, Pilate's Cross

Jane Taylor Starwood
“She hit the button again, holding her breath this time until she heard it.
Soft, sibilant, as insubstantial as the breaths that came before: Shannon. The voice whispered Shannon.
The blood rushed out of her head. Her heart knocked hard in her chest. Her knees buckled and she grabbed the counter to keep from falling. She was starting to hyperventilate, had to calm it down before she was taken by a full-blown panic attack.
Paper bag. Think. Think! Drawer below the silverware, next to the sink. Over the nose and mouth. Breathe slowly, slowly.
Holding the bag against her face, Shane slid to the floor with her back against the cabinets, legs splayed, lungs heaving.
It couldn’t be him. It couldn’t be Jordan. Jordan was dead.”
Jane Taylor Starwood, Shattered Blue

Marvin H. McIntyre
“Another misconception is that desires are insatiable. Admittedly, for the small segment of society that is clinically deranged, this statement may not hold true. But for those seeking riches, pleasure, or power, too much of a good thing dulls the appetite.” – Jeremy Lyons [Survival of the Fittest]”
Marvin H. McIntyre, Inside Out

Thomas Waite
“Little is spoken after the facts come out. Besides, the weapon says it all, the silencer so long and bold and beautiful. So foreboding.

Or so it seems.

Still, a trembling voice asks, “What are you doing?”
Isn’t that obvious?

Two sets of footsteps sound on the oak floor. One advances, the other retreats. “Keep going.”

The command is not loud, and it is issued with a complement of smiles, as if to soften the undue burden to come. They stop in the living room.

“Turn around.” Again, said softly with a smile, as if forgiveness might yet be won. - Terminal Value”
Thomas Waite, Terminal Value

Thomas Waite
“But now the babbling begins. It is not unexpected.

“Shush.” A finger to the lips. The softest command. “Shush.”

“Turn around.” The voice edgier now, perhaps an octave higher than absolute ease would allow. For the first time, it sounds murderous. “On your knees.”

Execution style? The back of the head?

But the babbler doesn’t ask those questions. The babbler pleads and kneels.

At least it will be fast. The temptation to offer solace is great—because it is such a lie.

The babbler begs for mercy. But with so much at stake, mercy is in short supply.

Surely you know this.

The muzzle nestles neatly in the back of the neck, near the seat of the reptilian brain.”
Thomas Waite, Terminal Value

Brooklyn Hudson
“I take writing very seriously. There's a lot of responsibility in putting blood in the veins of fictional characters.”
Brooklyn Hudson
