A single event can change the lives of so many people forever. For Lincoln Holchester, his friends and family, this event was the kidnapping and brutal murder of his sons. Unfortunately for him, this was only the beginning of his torment, however, as the perpetrator of this crime was revealed to be the most prolific serial killer of modern times - the infamous Wishbone killer. Wishbone continues to torture Lincoln to this day, but the grieving father fights back by forming a team of consultant detectives whose sole purpose is to hunt down the monstrous murderer. With the help of his best friend, Dean “Ung” Skarsgard, former police detective Ridley Skarsgard and technical genius Harry Romstein, Lincoln will stop at nothing to bring Wishbone to justice.
Our story begins after years of Wishbone being inactive. The FBI have been called to a small, picturesque town, Lily Port, where a series of murders that match the modus operandi of the dormant killer have been committed. Lincoln and his team are brought onto the case to help find the killer and bring an end to his latest killing spree. However, in order to do so, the team will need to embark on an adventure that will uncover the secrets of the mysterious town of Lily Port and its peculiar inhabitants. To catch their prey, they will need to uncover his origin and connection to this mysterious town. Will they finally manage to do so or will the hunters become the hunted in this dark game of cat and mouse?
“Welcome to Lily Port” is the first in a series of fictional short stories each of which is part of “the Nefairyous Saga”. This is a collection of dark “fairy tales” that together form an epic saga that introduces interesting characters and gripping story-lines that will keep readers guessing at every turn.

About the Author
I am a devoted husband and father and a life-long geek. My passions and hobbies range from video games, series and movies to reading and software development. My goal was always to become a video game developer but that dream got lost somewhere along the way. After completing my studies, I became a software developer specializing in business systems development. I have a BSc degree in both Computer Science and Mathematics and an Honors degree in Computer Science. After spending more than a decade in the world of software development and achieving great success in that area, I took a step back to reflect. I came to the realization that despite having had a great career thus far, I had lost sight of what made me passionate as a kid. I then picked up mobile video game development as a hobby and developed some indie games for the Google Play Store. Although I really enjoyed the whole indie "vibe", I came to realize that my true passion was not in the programming side of video game development, but what really drove me was creating and developing stories and interesting, unique characters. It all made sense: the common thread that existed in all my passions and interests was not software development or anything like that, it was story telling. That brings me to where I am now: a father, a husband, a geek, a couch potato, a software developer and an aspiring author who hopes to bring fantastical, fictional tales to the world. As a fan of series and graphic novels / comics, I have chosen to write my tales as short-stories that the reader can finish quite quickly - similar to the concept of a season of a television series. My goal is to release each subsequent issue within a short amount of time so that the readers constantly have something to sink their teeth into without long gaps between the release of the books. I aim for my work to be like my favorite video games, graphic novels, series, etc: suspenseful, gripping, shocking, character-driven and not for the faint of heart and I truly hope that anyone who does me the honor of reading them not only enjoys them but can't wait to get hold of the next one.
