Hi, Jeff!
Thanks for checking out my work.
As for your question, I am currently writing the sequel to Blood and Rain. It is titled, Waiting For Darkness. I'm hoping to get it ready for Halloween of this year. Stay tuned!
If you haven't checked out my novella, CHASING GHOSTS, give it a shot. The eBook is on sale for just 99 cents.

Thanks again.

I actually live in Maine. I think the woods have a lot to do with our horror minds. There's so much that we can't see just beyond our doors. It just initiates this child-like fear within us. And that always makes for a good scare. Whether you're reading a good, spooky book or watching the Evil Dead.

Children of Chicago by Cynthia Pelayo

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Wow, this book was much darker than I thought it was going to be… and I loved it! I mean, it’s about the Pied Piper, so I should have known it was going to be grim.
