Overview

This short story is the prologue to my novel "The Dark Trek Home".

A father and son out fishing.

Quality time from the first cast, the morning is perfect...for awhile. Chaos ripples across the pond and the two find themselves fleeing for their lives.

Nothing makes sense.

What is after them? What do they want? Most disturbing of all: why do they want them?

Bonus content: chapter one of my coming of age horror novel "Fall Leaves and the Black Dragon"

Excerpt:

“You’ll get him next time, son!” his father assured him. “Probably need to put another worm on now.”

Dave kept reeling his line then stopped when the bobber was nearly to the shore.

“Hey look dad, a turtle!” Dave was pointing out toward the center of the pond.

Greg squinted through the bright sunlight reflecting off the water out to where his son was pointing. A small, dark curve was floating on the water. “Yep I think you’re right!”

“Can we catch it, dad?”

“Now that wouldn’t be very fa-” Greg’s eyes widened in confusion and caused Dave to reevaluate what he thought was a turtle. It rose further out of the water.

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 have had short stories published by The Horror Zine, Alliteration Ink, Death Throes Webzine, Crypto and Co., and several horror anthologies.
