Will Marie Adams become a victim herself? Has she slipped too deeply into the bowels of darkness?
The town of Bringham - once a peaceful, God-fearing community, suddenly finds itself in a major crisis.
Strange things are happening which defy logic even in the slightest sense of the word. Yet, one resident has seen the devastation before-hand and knows that if something isn't done quickly to eradicate the evil that is upon them, the town they know and love will be a distant, tragic memory.
What no one can possibly fathom is that the seemingly pious and good-natured may be the reason the darkness has found its way to Bringham in the first place.
As you pay close attention to this story, each episode will bring you closer and closer to the truth.
CAN THIS TOWN BE SAVED OR WILL IT GO STRAIGHT TO HELL?

THIS IS GOING TO BE ONE UNFORGETTABLE JOURNEY ACROSS THE DEEP, BLUE SEA.
This is going to be one unforgettable journey across the deep, blue sea. No member of the crew could have ever imagined it. Will they survive the upcoming terror or will they be so frightened that they'd opt to find an easier way out?
Dellie Hayworth has landed a job with one of the largest shipbuilding companies after years of unemployment. She is sent off to sea with her marriage in shambles and seemingly beyond repair. For two weeks, she will reside in the luxury vessel, 'The Caesar', in anticipation of what awaits her when she returns home. However, neither she, nor any other member of the crew can fathom what awaits them in the middle of the ocean.
Excerpt: HAUNTED CRUISE (Coming May 22, 2016).
She felt the anger boiling up inside of her. She had done everything she could possibly think of to get him to recognize the error of his ways, to get help, and to get their life and marriage on track. He refused to look into the mirror of his soul — perhaps too painful a task it was, but his resistance was in the meanwhile eating away at his marriage like a cancer eating away at the bones until there was nothing left to destroy; nothing left to kill; nothing left to revive.

A "HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL" TALE
Thirteen-year-old Mira Cullen is very unhappy at home. She hates the way her father treats her mother whom she perceives to be nothing more than a doormat for him. Michael, the family's patriarch, has real issues that prevent him from being the type of husband and father his family wishes he could be. However, unbeknownst to him, his life is about to take a drastic turn.
One day, Mira and her brother, Wade head out to explore a large, abandoned house in a wooded area near their home. They are unaware that their innocent adventure would open up the bowels of history in a most uncanny way. Shortly after their exploration, an uninvited guest invades their personal space. Unsure of what to do, Mira turns to the one source that is bound to have all the answers--a rather unlikely source.
Drawn into the life of one cut short by jealousy, Mira doesn't realize that her willingness to help a mere stranger would result in a new beginning for her own family.
Among the pages of 'CORNELIUS' is a love story so powerful and intriguing that will leave some thinking and others... in tears.
CORNELIUS is a spine-tingling, paranormal tale that ties a painful history into the present day. Get ready to be chilled to the bone!!!

Revenge of Cornelius is a clever spin-off from the popular, spine-tingling, paranormal tale, CORNELIUS: Amazon #1 Bestseller in the Teen & Young-adult Multi-generational Family Fiction category in November 2015.
Mira Cullen is all grown up now and has left the confines of her ever-so-haunted childhood home. She and brother, Wade, have moved away to pursue their passions, but life for Mira has turned out quite differently from that of her brother.
After returning home for a family visit, Mira finds herself in front of the old Ferguson house again — a place she has blatantly avoided since the entire life-altering experience of fifteen years earlier. The only thing is...there are new residents now, but not the kind she would have ever expected to see.
Her six-year-old daughter, Rosie, is attached to her grandfather at the hip, so to speak, but no one ever dreams that the little girl has a special gift just like her mother and will be the bait an angry ghost uses to settle a score long overdue. She is in terrible danger, but no one knows it and the love of her grandfather will be tested to the highest extreme.

Dysfunctional Families: The harmful effects of Favoritism.
What constitutes a perfect parent? Is it one that does everything right and never makes a mistake? Perhaps... but can we find any of those?
Needless to say, no one is perfect, but when it comes to parenting certain things could and should be expected of adults given the wonderful responsibility of caring and nurturing children. As a parent myself of teenagers, I hope that one day when they're grown, my kids will genuinely be able to say that my love for them was unconditional, I never had favorites and I did my very best to raise them with solid values and a good moral compass. I do believe that they're able to say that even now. Am I a perfect parent then? Certainly not! That's because I'm not a perfect human being. I make mistakes just like everyone else does and when I'm wrong or mistaken about something, I apologize to my kids-- I show them that I'm not too big to do that. Unfortunately, many parents I know believe it's beneath them to apologize to their children when they've made a mistake, but if that's the attitude, what are they teaching their kids? How will their children learn to apologize when they're wrong?
I mentioned earlier that one thing I wanted my kids to be able to say is that I didn't have favorites. Favoritism seems to be a serious problem in families even from the days of old. If you go by Biblical examples, you might think of Jacob and Esau or Joseph being his father's favorite. The ideal situation would be that parents train themselves to love their children equally, but to those who don't, my wish is that you never be open or make the fact obvious that you prefer one child over the other. This can be detrimental to the family structure and cause major problems among the siblings that will continue for years and years and then trickle down to generations. Open, blatant preference for one child over the other will have terrible, long-lasting effects.
In my book, 'INFESTATION: A Small Town Nightmare', Marie Adams has faced the dilemma of being her mother's least favorite child and as a grown adult now with a family of her own, she still faces the disdain of her aged mother. As a result of years of her mom's mistreatment of her, her siblings have basically followed suit and the family structure is nonetheless, broken. I wanted to address this topic in my book because it is one that needs to be looked at and each of us as parents need to consider if we're guilty of 'tearing down our own house with our own hands' based on the way we treated our kids.
In closing, I'd like to think that someone can improve the quality of a child's life if we consider our children's feelings before we speak and before we act.
