I write horror fiction, that’s why. And if you want to get a better idea of how scary some of the stuff I write is, all you have to do is look at the background on my blog page. The same background appears on my Twitter page here.
Some folks have said the stories I write is scarier than anything Stephen King or H.P. Lovecraft have come up with. If I had to recommend the scariest ones to read, it would be “Last Stop” in “Deadly Duo: Two Stories of Death and Murder” and “The Culling of the Damned” in “Ghostly Quintet: Five Tales of Ghosts, Apparitions, and the Beyond.” And those are just for starters.
Just in case you don’t know, here are the horror books I have written thus far:
When a woman comes to a Roman Catholic Church seeking help for her mother, two lifelong friends, one a Lutheran layman, and the other a Catholic priest, find their friendly discussions turning to the more serious topics of evil, demonic possession and exorcism.
Over a period of weeks, the priest observes an exorcism, and he tells his friend some of what he sees, but can the two friends exorcise their own personal demons in the meantime?
