My latest project, The Crooked Roads through Cedar Grove, will be released on June 30th. This Thriller/Mystery is based on my previous three-book-at-a-time novella series, which started back in 2011. For those unfamiliar with that series, it consisted of three standalone tales set against the backdrop of Cedar Grove, Massachusetts, a fictional New England town. Each story focused on a different protagonist, faced with their own personal conflicts. Each story, however, tied together with the next in ways known only to me at the time, as each novella was left with a cliffhanger ending. Now, all the answers are revealed, and through this reimagined telling of those three accounts, you’re sure to enjoy your adventure through the crooked roads through Cedar Grove!
The cover design was performed by Nicolene Lorette Design. Readers of my previous release, Left-Hand Path, will be familiar with Nicolene’s work as she had done the cover art for that project.
There’s an unsettling anomaly dwelling in the picturesque New England town of Cedar Grove. Kathleen, a seventeen-year-old newcomer to the town, is harassed and bullied by her classmates. Alex and Bethany purchase a beautiful home for well-below its value, only to discover that the reduced price offers them more than they bargained for. Brian develops an infatuation with a girl he finds online, but she’s not who he expects. There is a sinister presence silently twisting their fates together on the crooked roads through Cedar Grove.
In addition to the story, this Casebound Special Edition includes a 20 song soundtrack of original music written, composed and performed by yours truly. If you enjoyed suspenseful film scores from the late 70s and early 80s (think Howard Shore, John Carpenter and Tangerine Dream), then you’ll most likely enjoy the accompanying soundtrack of hypnotic, kaleidoscopic music.
“The Crooked Roads” will be available in select stores June 30th. Pre-orders for the book will begin next week online at Ocean View Press. Pre-orders will be offered at a discounted price before the official release date and will include a very special gift. Don’t miss out!
Can’t wait until June 30th?
