“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
