Storberry is now available for digital download through Amazon.com.
Jen Barrows, sixteen, believes something wicked hides within the crawlspace above the old garage. Her best friend, Tom, fears the dark forest at the edge of town. Instinct proves reliable.
When a strange wind storm cripples the town, something horrible follows in its wake to walk among the shadowed backyards of Storberry after nightfall, changing all that it touches forever.
Driven by a promise to protect each other and avenge personal tragedies, Tom and Jen align themselves with a former school teacher, who knows the truth behind the legendary forest, and a town stalwart, who first discovers the creature stalking the night. Page by Page, the terrifying threat of the creature escalates.
Set in 1987, Storberry is a welcome return to old-school vampire and zombie horror. Grab your bowl of popcorn and read Storberry with the lights low.
When I wrote Storberry, I wanted to recapture the magic of the vampire horror my generation grew up with – Nosferatu, Salem’s Lot, The Hammer Films. Back in the day when monsters were monsters and vampires were to be feared, a good horror movie was an unforgettable night at the Drive-In. I hope when you read Storberry you feel like you are at the Drive-In, a big tub of buttered popcorn at your side. Or perhaps seated around the campfire, sparks popping off the bonfire like fireworks, the eerie glow of the moon, and the chirring of crickets, as I tell you the story of the little Virginia town called Storberry.
My debut novel is the culmination of six months’ worth of writing and three drafts – a labor of love. Thank you to all of my family and friends who stood behind me in this effort and encouraged me to reach for my dreams…or in this case, nightmares.
Enjoy Storberry and let me know what you think.
