With a vampire, you can use a crucifix and holy water -- with a werewolf, you can use a silver bullet, especially one that is blessed -- with a zombie, you can shoot one in the head because the body is already dead. But what can you do with a creature from another dimension who cannot only get into your past but into your dreams? These entities have inhabited the creatures called Lamiae in ancient Greece and kuntilanak in modern Indonesia -- taken on their abilities as well as their appearances. These shape-shifting entities can control time-travel bridges and are more deadly than demons. And Dr. Harper Paget wants revenge against them for murdering his wife and to continue what was started by his ancestors who have been battling these entities for centuries. His goal causes him to risk not only his life but the lives of his paranormal investigator assistants by entering with him into the DARK NEIGHBORHOODS.
Trouble is . . . he and his group may not get out again. Someone had better warn them. In fact, warn anyone who will listen.

About the Author
I am a retired PhD in literature and writing who taught for sixteen years at a private college in Atlanta, at a university and community college back in my home state of Illinois, and for seven years in the People's Republic of China. Before finishing my degrees and becoming a professor, I worked in film advertising for two theatre companies in Illinois and sold advertising for a community newspaper in Missouri. Since returning to the USA in 2012, I have been devoting my time to writing. I do have one print book published as a scholarly evaluation of books made into films, focusing on British author John Fowles. My hope now is to continue my struggles to publish fiction novels that I have been working on for years, including my years in China. I probably will eventually complete my novel (or novels) about my teaching experiences in China. I finished a time-travel mystery called OF TIME AND THE DREAMER, a time-travel adventure titled FROM HERE TO ATLANTIS. Also I completed a trilogy of paranormal (horror) novels called the DARK JOURNEYS TRILOGY. In 2016, I finally finished a novel about an extraterrestrial occupation called CIRCLES AND REALMS. Maybe now I will go back and finish my novel about China called FORBIDDEN VOICES, that is if I am not occupied with a sequel to CIRCLES AND REALMS called SHADOWS AND REALMS. I really appreciate the sweat and mental trials that authors must go through, and I hope to continue my support for my colleagues through group sites through Facebook. Thank you all for support by continuing to read literature -- in whatever format. Right now, the USA is in fifth place among the countries in the world with the most educated people. I hope we can change that by showing that we are not only good at playing computer games.
