Be scared of the demonic green plastic army men carrying match sticks.

Liam’s formative years were far from normal. When he was six, there was a huge fire that involved his childhood friend, piles of dry leaves and a box of wooden matches. This horrific past won’t leave him alone. Literally.
Secrets that should have burned away long ago have haunted him for years and ruined his childhood.

Demons want him dead.

Voices beckon to him in the night.

At the brink of insanity, Liam heads back to confront the ghosts of his past and gain control of his life.

Every step of the way something evil is trying to stop him.

This dark coming of age journey reveals a truth more horrifying than the huge fire he lived through as a child.

A truth that threatens many lives.

Meet the Author

I am the director of Fantasy at Visionary Press Collaborative.

I spent 20 years serving in the United States Air Force, and have had the fortune to live all over the world, including Iceland, Germany, and in a tent for a year in Saudi Arabia.

Always an artist at heart, I produced many paintings during my adventures. After my service, I settled down with my family (wife, two great daughters, 2 cats and a little white fluff dog) in small town Iowa, where I love to volunteer at the antique carousel. Now, I help people with intellectual disabilities to reach their potential and teach psychology classes at a local college.

I switched from a paint brush to a pen and am now a horror writer, by night.

I am working on my forth novel. I have been published in The Horror Zine, Horrified Press, Sirens Call Publications, Pleasant Storm Entertainment, Crypto and Co., Death Throes Webzine, and several other horror anthologies.

    Well written, great ending

    I had a hard time getting into this story. At first it seemed like the normal (if there is such a thing as normal) boy meets world type of book. As the book progressed it became apparent that was not the case. At first I thought most of his ‘dreams’ were symbolic and I was just about to put the book down and send the author a note saying I was sorry but this wasn’t the type of book I first thought and that I couldn’t review it for him.

    However, as I made my way further into the book I realized I was very wrong. And I got hooked on trying to figure out the mystery along with the characters. Typically I don’t devote this much time to a single book because I have so many I’ve committed to reading, but there was something about the characters that kept bringing me back.

    Maybe it was the sense of mystery from the beginning that kept gnawing at me to figure it out, I don’t know. I do know the story is very well written and the end is more than suspenseful and definitely becomes a page turn about half way through. But don’t neglect the first of the book, either, because you have to read that part to know who to champion!

    Awesome Read

    Follow Willy on his journey to overcome a childhood tragedy; a tragedy that has left him traumatized and haunted. Haunted, not only by his memories of the event, but also by a black dragon that might not be all in his imagination. Watch as he grows up but can't shake the hauntings or the screwed up memories. As a young man fresh out of high school, now Liam to his friends and family, he needs to find answers to that terrible night. The author does a masterful job of getting the reader to flow with the story; the reader becomes one with the characters. He doesn't drown the reader with too many characters or places; each piece to the puzzle is memorable. He adds just enough twists to the road to keep the reader hooked till the end. Mr. Gustafson, has a way with throwing a good scare your way, leaving you with an increased heart rate and a "what the" on your lips. On my list of recommended reads. Overall, this book rocked.
