Meet the Author

The narrative I wanted to create would fulfill a fading desire and breathe life into the chimeras I had drawn in my notebooks. That visual mythology had been collectively called The Mortui Philosophies. I tried animation, but the repetitive work only produced frustration. So much in fact, I joined the 'sane' world and switched careers and did technical support. Secure, I had stopped painting and focused on what became a very rewarding career. After a few years lacking expression from my creative self, my Pazuzu Trilogy took its first breath.

    Don't bother

    Very short story, not very well written, feels more like a poem than a story.

    All right, you got me at Jeff - SPOILERS

    Yep, I missed Jeff on those last two pages. That is corrected with the latest draft I uploaded to Smashwords (which should arrive at B&N by the end of the month). As readers may guess, Lee was originally named Jeff.

    Abandoned happens to be one of my favorite short stories. Devon is recycled from the story Bloody Tannenbaum - in which readers, who more familiar with my storytelling scheme, hopefully recognize. That's why he's talking about demonic trees. More about that is in my short story Carnivorous Blight.

    SPOILERS - For readers looking to "see" something in the haunted house, I'm sorry you are disappointed. The COLD is the monster, it's there all along. I should have called the story "The Living Cold," but that's not as catchy as Abandoned.

    Umm

    This book was not very good. It was way to short and it should have had way more details. It could have been alot better.

    To: I have a problem

    I agree with the other four! Iphone 7 hasnt even been invented and so theres lie one. Lie two: you're a billionare? No, if you were you would have a phone, duh. You just want attention. There are kids around the world who starve every day. Your lucky you even get food. And you have a nook. Some people dont get to have any electronics AT ALL!! So stop whining and making things up just so you can get attention. Its not worth it.
