Overview

Stranded on Portsmouth Island, William Hill struggled to survive even as The Fever raced across the world leaving a wasteland of the dead and dying in its wake. The news brought stories of storms and riots, of people starving while governments promised food.

Two weeks before, life had made sense. The outlook hadn't been bright, but he understood it. Faced with dwindling supplies and a disease so virulent some wondered if humanity might be facing its own extinction, William figured he had enough to worry about.

Then he found the message, written in blood and written personally for him. The chilling message left him wondering if he'd live long enough to see the next sunrise.

Not even a fool could mistake the intent, not when the evil knew his name and watched from the shadows.

Meet the Author

Trying to figure out when I started writing is like trying to decide when I started walking. The stories have always been there, rummaging around in my mind. Some went on paper. Most didn’t. I wrote my first novel when I was 22. Thankfully, I left it to the dustbin of history where it shall always remain.

Imagine the grin, yes, it was that bad.

As for influences on my latest story, The Island, that one has been up there banging away in my head for a long time. Parts of it were told at bedtime. Though honestly, those who heard the parts wouldn't recognize them in the story. By the time we get to the second book in this series, they will find some recognizable moments. They'll also probably be upset that the adventure turned into something of a horror story.

Ahh, well, most of them are old enough now to read it for what it is.

I grew up in North Carolina, which is why part of the story is set there. I’ve been to exotic parts of the world, many countries, and most states. None of them I know as well as the one I called home for most of my life. It makes it easy to write about it, and the people in it.

I hope you enjoy the stories.

I read all 5 books one after the other. These really could be one book but I appreciate his philosophy of letting people read the first couple of parts free before paying for anything. Enjoyed the story, the characters, and will read the next part in the series. Reminds me a bit of early Koontz books.

Part 4 was even better than the previous three. It saddens me that there is only one more to go.

Michael Stark's abilities of storytelling reminds me of Steven King and Dean Koontz. I predict he will become a best seller author with this series.

Exceptional Series! Imagine a nightmare that knows your name... imagine all your nightmares know your name, and call out to you, promising your doom... Then bring those nightmares into daylight, and you have an idea what part 3 brings to your entertainment library. Well-written (just a few typos) with intriguing characters (as well as a glimpse of Sheriff Little) and plot twists, this part will leave you hankering for more... which will come in part four!

Again great plot development, marvelous characters and action that just won't quit! It gets down deep into your subconscious and makes you wonder about what YOU might have done in the past that might bring on such events. But don't worry, it's just fiction...mere entertainment. Or IS IT???

Excellent series, can't believe the first four are free. Read them in order. I just started part 5 it cost .99 and I would have paid more than that.

A lot of detail if you are into that sort of thing. Not enough action or story plot for me.
