This 89,000-word, supernatural horror, DEAD GODS, combines the psychological nightmare of Andy Davidson’s In the Valley of the Sun with the painful memories and secluded setting of Riley Sager’s Home Before Dark.

After fleeing a life of drugs and death during the long winter of 1986, young lovers—Rhea and Eddie—become stranded in the haunted Midwestern town of Saint Andrew where they must reconcile their guilt or become part of the town’s eternally damned.

This is a completed manuscript.


DEAD GODS: INHERITANCE is the 90,000-word sequel to DEAD GODS that continues Saint Andrew’s story of personal horror and psychological torment with Rhea and Eddie’s son, Johnnie, and the town’s surrogate mother, Ruth.

Rhea’s son, Johnnie, searches for his lost father among the damned as he battles his own addictions and abusive anger while a two-hundred-year-old dead woman seduces him with dark promises of hope and love. Meanwhile—against her vow never to return—Ruth hopes to save Johnnie while battling her own, unresolved demons and those that inhabit the haunted, Midwestern town of Saint Andrew.
