The Love of Horror!


You enter a tangled web of many miles traveled within your Imagination sitting in an apocalyptic timeframe, as a nation of blood thirsty Zombies desire to devour you. The adventure, mystery and horrific happenings seem to slowly play out in a realm of no return. Once bitten, twice shy, you might say! Not for the Vampire enthusiast, who loves the elegance of intrigue – this will surely grab you, plunging your very soul into a lustful heart-pounding adventure of Vampires, who seek out beautiful innocence. The desire of blood-curdling moments seize your interest, you turn page after page, faster and faster, all while being drawn into an illusion of a trance no one can resist. You turn a corner of the unknown that lurks in the dark. It sits quietly waiting, ready to envelope your very being. Paranormal happenings, which stretch the imagination far beyond a mindscape, send chills down your spine. You’re now engulfed within a nightmare, placed on the precipice of the abyss. The climatic venue keeps you glued to every word, creating so much detail within your mind, it drives you to want more, so much more.

The best part of any young adult horror/fantasy reading is that escape: the lure of desire and the yearning to know, to want, or belong in the traumatic splendor it offers. Captivating of course, the craving of words permeates your soul as your eyes peer into the pages seeking the horror it brings. Oh, you can very well see yourself in this role, as you read more into the subject matter of the horror story. It edges you on, leading you on a path to which your curiosity gets the best of you. It holds you completely hostage, while you anxiously continue to read the deepest, darkest secrets it has to offer.

Getting lost in the story is exactly where you want to be while you try to escape the clutches of evil that beckons you into its lair. The seduction becomes overwhelming as the horror that plays out only entices you. You are now part of the characters that are written within the pages. The plague of anxiety is exciting, so-much-so that you can’t put the book down. Welcome to your new found home – the horror realm.

Introductions into the forever seeking mindscape of horror can be exciting and yet a thrill ride you will love to take. As an Author, I love to establish that essential premise, where you, the reader, are not just reading a book, you’re becoming part of the story. My horror trilogy, Parasylum, carries with it a most fascinating spellbound interlude of what lies within its pages. Here is a sneak peek for you horror buffs, which will make you crave to see more:

“A team of inexperienced paranormal investigators find themselves involved in the deepest, darkest recesses of the unknown when they enter into Grandview’s Asylum. The souls of yesteryear seek revenge on whomever enter into the abyss of no return. The horrors are plenty with many twists and turns and an ending that’ll keep you shaking your head. Enter into the mindscape where a dream turns into a nightmare and the nightmare is your reality.

Enter the mindscape that transforms dreams into nightmares and nightmares into reality. The way we perceive life is only a perception with some, who share in the illusion of disillusionment. We create the path in which we walk, yet the trail upon which one steps could very well be a story that is never ending. Welcome to Parasylum, where what may seem impossible is possible and what might seem sinister is just plain evil!

Anchored in the subjective mindset, he relinquishes his will to the inevitable. Everything seems to be of a set memory, glimpses from the past, forged into the now, leaving only the permeated sense of nothingness. Hung like a ragdoll in abject misery, the echoes of many shake the very foundation upon which the hallowed grounds cry. He closes his eyes, only to recount once more, everything over, and over again. There’s no escaping this torture from within, welcome to your Nightmare!”

There you have it horror fans, a glimpse into what awaits for you. Embrace the horror genre, as its fantasy is mixed with so much intrigue, which will keep you on the edge of your seat. Till next time, when you come to visit me in the Asylum, we will be sure to keep a few shock treatments just for YOU!
