Strange and Suspenseful Fiction to Read with the Skeletons in your closet


Sequel to Safe House in the works

The sequel to my novel “Safe House” is starting to take shape and I figure why not share this amazing news with the one or two folks who frequent my blog (what would I do without you?). Wait a minute. I’m usually one of those two folks so to that other brilliant stranger out there- a million thanks. Anyway, I’m going to keep this blog updated with tidbits of the journey as I write the next installment of occult detective Marissa Okison’s adventures.  I’m thinking this time out Ms. Okison will be even more in over her head and may have to make an appointment with someone she probably wishes never to see again. Or maybe she ditches the occult detective biz and gets a job as an Uber driver. Now that would be a truly horrific tale. Stay tuned friends ( or should I say friend? Fiend? Let’s keep it at stranger.)
