HORN LAKE Now Available on Kindle!



Horn Lake is now available on the Kindle HERE.
 
 Jackie Harmon has her hands full.

Her business executive husband is a driven overachiever. Her two teenage stepsons each come with their own form of trouble, and her recently returned sixteen-year-old daughter from a previous marriage simply despises her. As if all this wasn’t enough, she’s been forced to move.
In a bid to keep the older boy out of jail, her husband has uprooted them all from their home in Chicago to Horn Lake, a vacant rural property in southeast Texas. It will be lonelier than life in the city, although the accommodations are grand and Jackie is resolved to adapt.
But the house on Horn Lake is not as empty as it appears. Their new home was once the setting for an atrocity that left six people dead in a blood-soaked tale of betrayal and vengeance…
…and a drama that has scenes yet to play.
For the past still lingers at Horn Lake. It will slowly start to creep out from the shadows, and close in around them. Once it does, terror and tragedy will strike, and Death will stalk the grounds once more.
 
I hope everybody enjoys it, and if you did please leave a review. They help so much.

Horn Lake is Coming


 

I know it’s been a long time, but the wait is almost over.

At 210,000 words, the rough draft of Horn Lake is finished and the editing process is well underway. I am shooting for an early September release.

This is far and away the most difficult project I’ve ever undertaken… not only due to its size, or the complication of the growing paralysis in my hands, but the challenge of presenting a big story with a complex series of character arcs in a way that doesn’t lose the reader. There were times I despaired of being able to do it. Yet finally here we are, and the feedback from my proofreaders has been positive, so I’m hopeful I’ve pulled it off.

After writing of zombies, giant spiders, and monster-infested suburban neighborhoods, Horn Lake is my stab at a haunted house novel… although there is a little more to it than that. Now to get it through the polishing stages so it can be the best version of itself possible.

I thank all of you for waiting.
