We present DEADTIMES

…Mae Johnson desired too much.

…She made a deal with a demon to live again.

…Now she’s cursed to live over and over, see-sawing into people’s lives at the moment of their deaths, thrust into maelstroms of violence and emotion without any warning. As she strives to survive and do the right thing, she finds herself sometimes forced into evil acts, recognizing that she has become a game piece used in the eternal game of good vs. evil.








Peter Straub says about That’s Not My Name that “Yvonne Navarro bestows upon us what we always most need - a novel distinguished by its generosity of feeling, sense of discovery, narrative timing and command, accuracy of phrasing, and above all its sustained power.”

F. Paul Wilson says That’s Not My Name “is a truly unsettling work of fiction. The chills come not from ghosts or external threats, but from within, from the very real tricks the mind can play on itself. Do not miss this one.”

Poppy Z. Brite says deadrush is “a delicate tapestry of bizarre images and intriguing characters.”

Science Fiction Chronicle says deadrush is “a wonderfully chilling account of corruption, cruelty, and obsession...”

Gauntlet Magazine says DeadTimes “is is a work that celebrates our common humanity... Literature can have no greater goal than that.”

Masters of Terror says about DeadTimes that “it's a pleasure to read a novel and know that the author has come up with something original, satisfying and enjoyable.”


DEADTIMES was previously published in trade paperback and is currently out of print.

Also by Yvonne Navarro and Crossroad Press... AfterAge and Mirror Me ... both available for your eReader and in unabridged audio.

    DEADTIMES is chilling and enlightening!!

    It¿s a pleasure to read a novel and know that the author has come up with something original, satisfying and enjoyable. To see said author use everything at her fingertips and to completely tell a tale is also a joy to behold. In DEADTIMES, we get this and so much more. Yvonne Navarro comes up with a plot that is so adaptable to what she wants to accomplish, it was with awe that I read this in three sittings, marveling at the prose. DEADTIMES can be read in two ways: as a whole novel or as a series of short stories told in chapter form. Either way you will enjoy this tremendously. DEADTIMES is a told through the eyes of Mae Johnson, who was the daughter of a Hopi taken from her home in the early 1700¿s and fathered by Daniel Johnson, a White trapper. After quite a few decades, the deadly curse that the Hopi¿s father put on his daughter and John has Mae conjuring a demon to sell her soul to live nine more lives. The demon agrees and this is the genius of the story: Navarro now has given herself nine stories to tell. The first takes place in 1691 in Salem. Mae is now in Rachel, a constable¿s wife during the Witch Trials. Then she is a Mambo in 1943. Next is 1585 and we meet Mae as Lady Gwendolyn who is set to undertake the wifely duties of Lord Christopher, who is in turn related to Lizzie Borden. Now the next life is a surprise and a twist I didn¿t see coming but could happen only the way Navarro describes. Then, in 1961, Mae is a Negro male who is running from Klansmen after being nearly hanged. The following life is also a twist that had me screaming, 'Justified!'. 1986 is represented by a gay male who has AIDS and the tribulations he goes through with his infected lover. Then we go to the present time and follow Mae as a hooker in Los Angeles who is befriended by a cop that brings the narrative full circle. The epilogue lets us in on one last secret that is so evil and cunning, I was smiling ear to ear by the time I closed the book. The basic theme in each story/life is change. Mae tries to make each person she inhabits a better person than when she first comes into them. Navarro brings life to different historical eras with her gorgeous descriptions. The dialogue is perfectly set in each year and rings true. I fully enjoyed this book and have to say that Yvonne Navarro is at the top of the dark genre and you would be making a grave mistake by not checking out DEADTIMES and other books written by this clever and fun writer.
