Born in Denver, CO, Andre Gonzalez has always had a fascination with horror and the supernatural starting at a young age. He spent many nights wide-eyed and awake, his mind racing with the many images of terror he witnessed in books and movies. Ideas of his own morphed out of movies like Halloween and books such as Pet Sematary by Stephen King. These thoughts eventually made their way to paper, as he always wrote dark stories for school assignments or just for fun. Followed Home is his debut novel based off of a terrifying dream he had many years ago at the age of 12. His reading and writing of horror stories evolved into a pursuit of a career as an author, where Andre hopes to keep others awake at night with his frightening tales. The worl ...more

Just do it!

My biggest regret is not pursuing writing throughout high school and college. It's easy to get distracted by life, but if you can dedicate at least one hour a day to writing, you will find how much you can grow and sharpen your skills. Self-discipline is everything. I used to play video games for two hours every night before bedtime, but now use that time to read and write!!(less)

This book will follow an average Joe through life and its many issues like job problems, friendship problems, and relationship issues to the point of him reaching his boiling point.

As a survivor of one of America's largest mass shootings at the Aurora Movie theater, I followed the trial closely, and became fascinated with the process that goes behind trying to prove someone as mentally insane. This book looks to tackle that issue in a sense. It seems we have a debate in this country between insanity and guns, but no one ever wants to discuss that the issue behind our violence touches on both matters, not just one.

Insanity will shed some light on the internal battle people go through before snapping, as well as the ease they have to purchase weapons used as killing machines.

"Great story!

This starts out more of a mundane thriller then takes a delicious turn into Sci-fi horror. The writing is tight and clear. His descriptions are vivid and had me as anxious as the victims in the story. Well done! " Read more of this review »
