spent my life bouncing back and forth between Southern California and
New Jersey. During my elementary school years I discovered that I
have dyslexia. Therefore, I learned to read with a lot of help from
my parents and eventually got good enough to read novels. With the
influence of my father’s interest in horror movies and history, I
read two things, Stephen King and history books. It’s no surprise
my stories, have a touch of both in them.
Working with the public, including the
rental car business, my father’s diner, and later evolving into a
teacher of Native American history, criminology, and special
education, has allowed me to draw upon experiences that reveal much
about human behavior. My writing reflects many of the different
personalities and settings have I’ve come to know first hand. Of
course I’ve never come across a demon, witch, the devil himself or
a serial killer, but the personalities and people I’ve met are
represented within each one of my characters.
On a personal note, I have a family, a
house and the white PVC picket fence. I graduated from college and
have a dog my kids call Roscoe. (Max from The Beckoning) What’s of
more interest to you is that my favorite hobby is writing, the
scarier the better. If you love stories that will scare the pants off
you that are priced for the 99 per centers like myself, then you have
come to the right website.
thing about life is that people seldom recognize its beauty or what
they have until it’s gone. In 1842 New York City, Isaiah Whitfield,
a pioneer in photography (daguerreotypist) and a religious zealot, is
no different. Incapable of recognizing anything but the bad in the
world, he embarks upon a crusade to perfect society and to bring
about the Second Coming. If he can scare people away from sin, even
if he has to kill the sinners to do it, Isaiah is certain that he
alone can bring about Christ’s return. That is until Satan makes
him an offer he can’t refuse.
2012, Rachel and her fiancé occupy Isaiah’s old apartment. Rachel,
outwardly happy with her life, deep down wants something more. When
an undeveloped daguerreotype is found hidden in her studio’s wall
it sets her life and the fate of New York City on a collision course
with disaster. Rachel falls hopelessly in love with the man in the
old picture, but unwittingly frees the now demonic serial killer,
Isaiah Whitfield, from Hell. True to form, he immediately goes on
killing sprees in two different centuries.
Rachel finds out, loving a time traveling serial killer straight from
Hell has its downsides. For Isaiah, complete blindness to the wonders
of this world may have ruined him for ever. Can the power and beauty
of love change a demonic serial killer? Can Rachel come to her senses
before she loses her fiancé and possibly her own life in the
process? In the summer of 2012, the fates of many in New York City
depend upon it.
