Review: ebook provided by author
Creepy is a collection of short stories, some fiction and some not that will send shivers down your spine!
Creepy contains two of my favorite short-suspense stories (The Rumblin' and Murdoch's Eyes), but best of all, it includes some of my real life supernatural experiences...absolutely true ghoststories. I was around ten years old when I had my first supernatural experience. Thirty years later, my ghosts have returned and they are creepier than ever. I've seen full-bodied apparations, felt a dark presence practically breathing down my neck, and I work everyday with a ghost who seems more curious than anything.
The following true stories are all inside CREEPY:
~ The Shadow Man
~ The Ghost Named Earl
~ Someone in the Basement
These ghostly experiences have influenced my writing and allowed me to truly capture the essence of fear and suspense that you'll discover in my fiction. If you enjoy creepy tales from Stephen King, you'll love my heart pounding, short stories too. This collection of true stories and short suspense will at the very least, creep you out!
I received this book to give an honest review.
I love reading ghost stories because honestly I never believe in them. I do love the creepy vibe the stories give off though. In Creepy we are given several short stories that will either scare you are freak you out you just take your pick of feelings.
For me the stories were not scary or creepy yet I did enjoy the book I may let my 11 year old read this book as he is just now getting into the horror/paranormal side of things.
I'm the bestselling author of REUNION, Twisted Vengeance, Creepy and The Indie Author's Guide to the Universe.
I live in Central Indiana with my wife, four children and two stray cats. I obsess over details, dream strange dreams and teach a creative writing course for a homeschool co-op. Look for my upcoming paranormal thriller, Act of Vengeance, coming in late 2011.
I grew up in Saginaw Michigan, moved to Aurora, Ohio in 78' and finally settled in Central Indiana where I met my wife and graduated from Indiana University. I'm an occasional runner, life long drummer, and household handyman. Over the years, I've done everything from working on an assembly line, installing HVAC units, teaching Sunday school, to running my own business. But through it all, I've always loved to write.
In 2006, something finally clicked when I heard the calling to begin writing novels - and write I did. Like many writers, I have a book or two that the world may never read, so don't ask about those. It is my hope, however, that the ones you do read will be good, inspiring you to think about life
