What is apparent at first glance doesn't always show the truth. What can appear beautiful on the surface, can hide pain and horror underneath. A beautiful sunny day on your honeymoon can hide untold sorrow and death. We all chase our dreams but watch that last step. Do you want a house in the country? Remember every house holds a few secrets. Parks can be a lovely way to spend the evening but demons can hide even there.
Have you every walked into a restaurant or a bar and felt the need to leave as quickly as you got there. Did you ever stop at a rest stop and for some reason you decided not to stop. Have you ever seen something on the highway and it left goose bumps on your flesh. You get these feeling but you can’t explain why. In Nightmare Express you may get your answer to these question. There are things in this world that we don’t see. Not because we can’t see them but as humans we choose not to.
There are demons and monsters you never suspected. The things in your nightmares are real you just don’t want to see it. John is an individual that will lead you through each story and tell you why certain things happen. He will show you the stuff of your nightmares.
There are no real happy ending in this book, well maybe one. Every character you are introduced to in each of these stories has something in common with the one before them. They all share a link. They each go about their lives making choices that effect not only their lives but the lives of everyone they come into contact with. We are told from the time we are very young that we have those choices in life and it’s true we do. We choose the path we take and ultimately it comes down to whether or not we make good decisions. Yes we all have our choices, until we die.
So come and take a ride with John and me as we take you to places so dark your mind will scream in terror. Oh don’t bother with the seat belt where we’re going you won’t need it.
About the Author
I love the twisted and macabre. I also love the old horror where the thing that went bump in the night scared you and not all the blood gushing from a jagged wound that is more likely to gross you out. There is a difference. Don’t get me wrong I can do gore and quite well when I need to.
I’m also not a young adult author. I’m way too old for that and personally at this point in my life I want to read a book that involves men and women over twenty five and under one hundred and twenty five. If you’re younger than that I don’t think you’ll care and if you’re older than that, then God bless you and let me know, I’ll change the upper end of the timeline.
I tend to be outspoken and nothing is sacred when it comes to my writing. Well that part isn’t entirely true. The farm in the Blood Lines series is and I don’t apologize for that. I started writing because of that farm.
I strive to create the unusual and different and that’s not always easy, as a matter of fact, it’s hard. I try hard not to do the tried and true.
When I read a horror story I want to read a horror story. Can it have love and caring in it? Sure, but let’s keep things in perspective. I want to scare you and I’ll leave it up to other really good authors, and there are some really good ones, to give you all that other stuff.
I set out to write horror. I will take you to places in my books you’ve never been before and along the way I may make you laugh because what fun is real horror if it can’t make you laugh on occasion? The good part about the humor, you still have to turn the page and what waits for you there might not be so funny.
I have also recently become a producer for the short horror film, She Summoned Him. I'm looking forward to the the release.
I'm married to a wonderful man, Buddy, and between us we have three very beautiful daughters. We love to travel in our converted 1963 Greyhound 4106 and discover new places and meeting new people. I grew up with four wonderful brothers, one of which is no longer with us. I was born in Mississippi, grew up in Tennessee, and fell in love with Missouri as well as a man who comes from there.
I am surprised at how much writing has helped me grow as a person. I pay a lot more attention to things around me than I used to and can find a story in almost everything I see and hear. I have also learned what a truly dark sense of humor I have. I love making people raise an eyebrow at me on occasion.
My husband and I were recently at a local restaurant and were picking at one another. The waiter walked up about that time and I asked if they had an oven large enough to put a body in. He asked why and after a short explanation with a wicked little gleam in his eye he told me they did. What concerned me was that wicked little gleam. I have since found out that a lot of restaurants do have ovens big enough to hold a human body. My suggestion to you is not to make the waiting staff of any eating establishment angry. You might end in up on the menu the next night.
With seven books of my own under my belt, at present count, nine short story books, one exceptional book of short stories along with eight other gifted writers and the next one in the Blood Lines Series that I'm working on I'm pretty happy with where I am in my life right now.
