It's a stand-alone novel, no prior reading necessary. I'm also finishing the outline for my next novel, which, if things stay on-track, will be a new installment in the Dark River series.(less)

There are a couple of books that have started this way, so feel free to write me! This particular letter was from someone who runs a B&B in the Midwest, and it started me toward an homage to my 2nd novel, "A Haunting in Oregon," which is also set at an inn -- in that case, a hotel. There are several scenes in the new book which emulate scenes from "Oregon" for that reason.

Feel free to write to me anytime! While I can't guarantee you'll inspire a book, you never know. I will definitely enjoy hearing from you.(less)

A long wait, but the new novel has finally arrived!

It took a long time to write this one; it’s been nine months since Descent Into Hell Street. I’m very proud of The Coldwater Haunting, and hope you will enjoy it. It’s my longest novel at over 100,000 words. It was also one of the most enjoyable to write.


With this book there were four areas I wanted to explore:

– Ongoing skepticism in the face of the bizarre

– Capturing the sense of disorientatio...

“and one of those other bodies out there?” “I am,” Eliza said, “because I’ve found the more power is returned to these people, the healthier this place gets.”
Michael Richan, A Haunting In Oregon

“Don’t make it up!” Roy said. “Use your anger to give the performance. Just don’t let it cloud your judgment. Remember our goal here. We may have to make some quick decisions and if you can keep thinking straight we’ll be fine. If you get flustered and angry I’ll be left flying solo. Stay in control, but act upset.”
Michael Richan, A Haunting In Oregon

“On the small coffee table between them was a large art book from the Carnegie museum in Pittsburgh.”
