What Do You Do When Faced with the Unknown?

Let me tell you about a strangely calm night from years ago. It was a new moon, and all my neighbors had gone to bed oddly early. No passing cars, no breeze; even the nocturnal birds were silent. It was so uncharacteristically dark and quiet. Then I woke to something tapping on my window. I’m not completely paranoid, so I reasoned it was some stray wildlife. Ignoring it, I kept my eyes closed and went back to sleep. That’s when I heard the whispers. You see, what made it more intriguing was the fact that my bedroom was on the third floor of our house. The window was behind me, closed but with ..read more

Sometimes You Just Have to Listen to Your Gut…

Have you ever had a moment when you realized you needed to get the hell out then and there? That instant you just knew you couldn’t waste a minute more to second-guess yourself? There’s a labyrinth of man-made canals that connects to the ocean near my house. Water visibility is, on good days, maybe a foot. It didn’t exactly look inviting. Still, people go in it. Because, why not? No harm in having a swim, especially on a hot summer’s day, right? I used to think so, too. But I haven’t gone back there since that day I had one of those moments. I was swimming alone. I was treading water, savorin ..read more

Can Shane Ryan Stop Evil That Is One Made of Many?

For this story, I wanted to take Shane to the middle of nowhere. And the northern part of Alberta in Canada fit the bill nicely. Here, he has to face the challenge of a remote location and how it affects what a spirit can do when it has a serious bloodlust and the ability to react without repercussions. When delving deeper into the mystery of Lazarus for this book, I was inspired by the idea of a siphonophore—a thing that is one made of many. Something that look like one single entity at first but are made up of many, many more when you get close enough to investigate. How would such a thing ..read more

Safety in Numbers Is Not Always Guaranteed

“What do you mean we were being stalked?” I remember my HR officer smiling as she asked the question. “We never walk alone. Always in groups. We walk up after dark, yes. We keep to the road, though. Never the hiking trail,” she continued. Our guest wildlife expert nodded. “You were being followed every time.” “Really? None of us ever saw anything.” “You wouldn’t have. Not until it decided if it wanted to kill you or not.” The HR officer stopped smiling. Her face is what I remember most about that orientation. I had never seen a smile disappear so fast. Our HR officer had never realized how cl ..read more

Be Careful What Secrets You Harbor…

Something I’ve learned through my true crime fixation is that secrets require maintenance. It is easy to get away with something horrific. That’s just a moment in time. BUT… The moment you take your eye off the ball is when things start to fall apart. And some people are unfortunate enough to unwittingly stumble across something dangerous and forced to keep it secret. In this volume of Night Terrors, we see these poor souls catch a glimpse behind the curtain and pay the price. A woman possesses the ability to generate wealth when happy—whether it’s a blessing or a curse is yet to be seen. A m ..read more

More Often than Not, Things Are Best Left Alone

I was a weird kid. And it took me a while to accept that the other kids didn’t share my interests. They scoffed at ghosts. They didn’t exhaust their library’s paranormal section. They didn’t chase down stories of myths and the macabre. All those hours gobbling grisly tales in my youth did teach me a few things, though. Perhaps the most important was learning that there are times when you need to walk away. And times when you need to run. Tavern of Terror Volume 3 brings you twelve tales of characters that discover this a little too late. A grieving father realizes that his son’s death wasn’t ..read more

Things Are Looking a Little Bleak for Shane Ryan…

Talk about some big shoes to fill. How do you tackle someone like Shane Ryan in a new and exciting way? For my part, I wanted to try to break new ground while paying homage to the true spirit of Shane. He’s tough, he’s no-nonsense, and he’s not a guy any ghost would want to mess with. So why not make a lot of ghosts mess with him? I’m a huge fan of martial arts movies, and I love the fighting tournament idea. Bloodsport, even Mortal Kombat—these stories were always exciting for me because they pit heroes against all these other unique and powerful beings. Add in ghosts and people who wield po ..read more

A Dark Force Is on the Rise and Only Gray Can Sense It…

We spent a lot of time exploring a wide variety of feelings—many of them from our own experiences—to create the character of Gray Brooks. We wanted to create a character who was complicated but relatable. A character who said and did things that seem familiar. And then, we threw him into unimaginable scenarios, battling monsters who’d walked straight out of nightmares to protect his loved ones. We think that Gray, like most of us, would put his own life on the line to keep his family safe. Because when our loved ones are threatened, we’d all find the strength to do even the near-impossible. I ..read more

Terror Won’t Stay Lurking Out of Sight for Long…

The worst things come for us when we feel our safest, when we’re at our most vulnerable. Normally, I’m a cautious, sometimes paranoid, person (workplace hazard of being a horror writer). Never park next to a van. Look in the back seat before getting into a car. Always lock the door behind you. I still can’t fathom my actions on this particular day. Preoccupied with the list of errands I still had to do, I sat in my car and fussed with my grocery bags. Then I turned to close my door. A man I had never seen before was standing there, only inches away, staring at me. I was lucky that day. He was ..read more

At Hannigan’s, Everyone Has a Story to Tell…

Some things can only be whispered about in the shadows. And even then, you’ll need a few shots of liquid courage first. That’s why pubs like Hannigan’s exist. It’s a safe place for adults to share their chilling stories of the macabre. We find enough comfort huddling close to each other to voice the things we would normally never dare. An actor tries to get his hands on a damning film after his blackmailer’s death but attempting to cover up the past risks unleashing horrors both new and old. A woman wakes to intruders breaking into her home, and her fight for survival leads to discoveries tha ..read more
