Sixteen-year-old Dahlia Grove is trapped in the Shadow Lands, a parallel reality where packs of feral children battle monsters in a haunted city. She has one week to escape. But when a mysterious witch attacks her new friends, she must choose between saving her friends and saving herself.

If she fails, she dies. DEAD GIRL.

What they’re saying about it:

“Like Harry Potter’s world, Dahlia’s is a world where evil is defined by power-lust, and good by friends banding together in a fearless quest for the healing of not only one another, but the world.”–Milinda Jay Stephenson

“The story itself is full of action, courage, interesting characters (many who aren’t monsters), and vivid setting descriptions.”–Bailey1971

Resident Deputy Jessica McGuire’s day starts much the same as usual, but when she jogs by the old family cemetery she discovers the grave of a baby had been dug up and the skeleton missing. It wasn’t much later when Pastor David Tanner reports the theft of a hand-carved redwood cross from his church. Next a baby goat is reported stolen and one of the pastor’s cows discovered mutilated in the field. Jessica and Pastor David team up to investigate these strange occurrences. He is convinced Satan worshiping is going on in their town. Jessica isn’t sure until she discovers a hooded and robed group meeting in the woods who flee upon her arrival. She knows she needs to get to the bottom of things before what’s going on escalates into something worse. Or has it already?

What they’re saying about it:

The Devil’s Foothold by Marilyn Meredith Review by Diana Hockley, Kings River Life magazine.

“Marilyn Meredith dredges deep for this story of evil and her research is impeccable. Whether one believes in the devil’s work or not, the reader’s heart can only beat faster as Jessica and David follow what leads they can to discover who is behind an increasingly horrific series of crimes. The author skilfully weaves miasma into every page, as danger edges closer to Jessica and her son, Jonathon.

Well-written and superbly paced, there are no histrionics in this plot, just dogged determination on the part of the realistic and likeable main characters. I don’t want to give any spoilers, so I will just say that book is a must read and a keeper!”

Gord Rollo’s chilling homage to slasher films!
During the  great depression, a small backwoods community in Iowa face even more  difficult times than most, having to endure the slowly fading sanity of  their leader, Reverend Joshua Miller. When it is clear the man has  slipped beyond the edge of reason and perhaps signed a deal with the  devil, the citizens unite to stop him any way they can, breaking into  the church to lash the reverend to his wooden alter cross then boarding  up the windows and doors to leave him to fate and God’s judgment. The  people of Oak Valley then abandoned their town to the cornfields and  woods; ending the madness for what they hoped was forever.

They were wrong!  Seventy-four years later, the corn and trees have taken back the area and not much  is left of the once thriving little community but Joshua Miller’s  desecrated church still stands, and within its boarded up and sun-baked  walls something that used to be a holy man waits for whoever is  unfortunate enough to release him from his cross…

What they’re saying:

“This is a roller coaster ride of blood, gore, and (best of all!), pure scary fun. The characters are engaging, the plot is fun, and it’s a good read from start to finish.”

“This is classic horror. Think teen-slasher movie.”

“In Valley of the Scarecrow, Gord Rollo offers a return to the golden age of horror, chock full of good old-fashioned chills.”

A stay in the Derbyshire countryside should be the perfect rest for Theodore Baker. There he ought to be able to forget his wearisome secret duty and the monsters he hunts, at least for a little while.

Next comes a sudden death and Theodore finds himself in an unexpected dilemma.  Monsters he can handle…but what about the rising power of a young witch?

What they’re saying about it:

“This is one of the most imaginative and captivating stories I have read in a long time. There is mystery, adventure and more than enough twists that I became caught up in Theodore Baker’s life, and could not tear myself away until I reached the conclusion of the novella….Beautifully structured, and carefully edited; this is a unique monster story that is also a delight to read.”

And a tiny northern Maine town, isolated and vulnerable.

Last November, Paskagankee, Maine was shaken to its core, held hostage by a centuries-old curse, terrorized by a brutal killing spree stopped at the last possible moment by new police chief Mike McMahon and beautiful young patrol officer Sharon Dupont.

Billionaire Seattle software designer Brett Parker is in Paskagankee to check on the progress of his newly-constructed summer retreat. But he’s not the only new resident in town. Max Acton, murderous sociopath and Arizona cult leader, has gained possession of a long-hidden sacred Navajo artifact with the ability to reanimate the dead.
*
Acton aims to use the stone in a murderous plot to kidnap Parker and steal his revolutionary new software design developed for the U.S. Department of Defense, selling it to the highest bidder and making millions. He doesn’t even need to get his hands dirty. All he needs is a victim to kill . . . and reanimate . . . and force to do his bidding.
