About the Author: Donald Michael Platt:

The experiences Donald and his wife Ellen had while living in Florianópolis, Brazil, and their adventures in ballroom dancing inspired him to write A Gathering of Vultures.

In Hollywood, Donald sold his writing to the TV series, Mr. Novak, and worked for and with diverse producers. After moving to Jupiter, Florida, Donald co-wrote Vitamin Enriched, 1999, for Carl DeSantis, founder of Rexall Sundown Vitamins; and The Couple's Disease, 2002, for Lawrence S. Hakim, MD, FACS, Head of Sexual Dysfunction Unit at the Cleveland Clinic.

Born and raised in San Francisco and a graduate of Lowell High school and U.C. Berkeley, Donald also has taught History, English, and Creative Writing and has been an Adjunct Professor of Writing at Polk Community College. He currently resides in Winter Haven, Florida with his wife, Ellen. His novel, Rocamora, was reissued by Briona Glen Publishing LLC in September 2011. The completed sequel to Rocamora, House of Rocamora, will be published by Briona Glen and is scheduled for release in 2012. He has completed a novel set in the 9th century Carolingian Empire, Bodo the Apostate, and has begun another set during World War II.

A Gathering of Vultures is that rarest of beasts: an erudite horror story without flawed logic. It begins with the suspense of a suspicious death and a sense of the urgent need to flee, proceeds with more deaths and an unfolding mystery and culminates in true, relentless horror. The exotic setting is clearly well known by the author and authentically portrayed. The writing held this reader's interest throughout, surprising with passages that were almost lyrical. A thoroughly engaging and very enjoyable read, this book highly recommended for discriminating readers of horror.
