Poisonous Whispers (book 5 of the Haunted Village series)
Trapped between a killer and an army of the dead, Subject B must make a final stand…
Marcus Holt is a decorated combat veteran, a survivor of the brutal Vietnam War. But to the brilliant Professor Abel Worthe, Marcus is known as Subject B — a human lab rat, forced to participate in a deadly experiment. Worthe intends to see just how much fear Marcus can survive, by trapping him in a village stocked with supernatural killers.
When a new building appears in the village’s dark, snow-swept streets, Marcus and his team are haunted by the cries of panicked children. After they investigate the decaying cobbler’s shop, they are shocked to find twin boys, cowering in fear. Marcus is determined to rescue these helpless children from the danger that Worthe has unleashed. But the twins are not the only inhabitants in this house of horrors.
Marcus and the others soon find themselves stalked by the venomous spirit of a bitter old woman, whose touch brings a painful death to her victims. But as they flee this hateful ghost, they quickly realize they are surrounded by an army of restless spirits. And even Worthe cannot control this horde of deadly wraiths.
Marcus’s back is against the wall. He swore he would fight to the death to escape Worthe’s fiendish game. But against these new foes, this may be a battle he cannot win.

And now for my own stuff, which is pitifully little.
I submitted a short story to Dragon Soul Press back at the end of February, and it was accepted into their Sea of Secrets anthology! Everyone celebrate! I have the links to some of the authors, but not all yet. When this information is updated, I’ll update here as well.
My contribution to this anthology is entitled, “The Birth of the Dreamers.” No mermaids, but there is an underwater race of people. What’s the difference? you might ask. Mermaids etc are half fish. My Sea Dwellers aren’t. If you’re heavily into science (*coughmydadcough*), you may feel the urge to poke holes into my logic. Just remember, the story is on another world, and these aren’t humans. They’re merely humanoid.
We also have a Leviathan swimming around if that piques your interest. hehe
This story is intended to be a prelude to a novel I have planned for later. That’s assuming I can ever find enough time to write more than short stories. It’ll happen. It may takes years, but…eventually…
