A note from J.D.
As a child I was always told the dark could not hurt me, that the shadows creeping in the corners of my room were nothing more than just that, shadows. The sounds nothing more than the settling of our old home, creaking as it found comfort in the earth only to move again when it became restless, if ever so slightly. I would never sleep without closing the closet door, oh no; the

There's very little happening in Hollywood right now due to the virus. It's like the industry hit "pause." I'm sure we'll see the series on the screen at some point post apocalypse.

“Sometimes the most frightening of thoughts can be found hiding among the shadows of our own minds.”
J.D. Barker, Forsaken

“Just when I think I have nothing to say, the characters start to speak. Writing is funny like that.”
J.D. Barker, Forsaken

“Writing can take you to places you’ve never been, introduce you to people you’ve never met, take you back to when you first saw those shadows in your room, when you first heard the sounds mumbling ever so softly from your closet, and it can show you what uttered them. It can scare the hell out of you, and that’s when you know it’s good.”
J.D. Barker

“Books are like puppies, they wait for you with unconditional love and welcome you back whenever you return.”
J.D. Barker

“We're going to have such fun, you and I.”
J.D. Barker, The Fourth Monkey
