Meet the Author

Mark Paul Jacobs lives in lovely Dauphin, Pennsylvania. He enjoys fishing the Canadian north, poker, and annoying his wife. He has authored two novels: How Teddy Roosevelt Slew the last Mighty T-Rex, a Historical Science Fiction tale set in 1914, and the hard science fiction novel: The Yaakmen of Tyrie, a powerful and mysterious tale of bravery, loss, perseverance, betrayal, and redemption. He is also quite proud of his awe-inspiring short story: The Day God Winked and his chilling novelette with the provocative title: The Watchers from within Moments Revealed, an almost universally well reviewed work for which he has written a screenplay suitable for an ‘Outer Limits’ episode. These and several other works are available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Sony, and Smashwords.com. How Teddy Roosevelt Slew the last Mighty T-Rex and The Yaakmen of Tyrie is available in paperback via Createspace.com. Mark is working on a movie screenplay tentatively called Stain which is a gritty murder conspiracy based in Central Pennsylvania similar to the movie ‘Fargo’ or ‘Reservoir Dogs’. Please enjoy his works and don’t be afraid to tell him what you think on his Facebook page, twitter account, or by email. And lastly, please take the time to leave him a review of his work; it doesn’t have to be long or long-winded, but it does make him feel that his hard word has touched someone’s life in some way. You can leave a review wherever his books are available.

Reminds me of a story told around a fire at a campground. Enjoyed this little book.

This story is 33 pages. It was interesting- I had to read it 3 or 4 times to try to better understand it and each time my mind caught some detail I had overlooked before. I still can't figure out what is real or not in the story (the story is of course fiction but I am referring to the details told in the story) and about the time I had decided the whole thing was made up, the ending came along and caused me to do some re-thinking. I still am not sure whether I actually like this story or not; I generally do not read this genre but it was free and all in all was an interesting story.

Creepy and entertaining, I'd recommend this short story to anyone looking for a quick read. The boys and their adventures remind me of many of my own childhood antics. The ending leaves you hanging, though, wondering if it is real or not. I'm not usually a fan of scary horror, but Mark's light touch with the story kept me reading and enjoying this tale.

Mark Jacobs' short story, "Incident at Walter's Creek," reminds me a little bit of Steven King's "The Body." A group of young boys are telling stories to frighten one another as they creep up on the local "haunted house." As is always the case with such stories, there is more to the situation than meets the eye. Jacobs pulls the reader in with dialect, entertaining characters and situations ... and some surprising twists and turns. Nicely done!
