More About the Author
He is the author of several dozen short stories, four novellas, and will be releasing his first novel, Blood, Smoke and Ashes, a supernatural thriller, in early 2013.
He was born in Georgia, but moved to southern New Jersey before he could be forced to be an Atlanta Braves fan. He spent his formative years living outside of Philadelphia where he latched on to the Philly sports teams and was promptly disappointed for almost twenty years. He spent his college years in New Orleans, where he earned his bachelor's degree in evolutionary biology at Tulane University, then relocated to lovely Newark New Jersey, where he earned his DMD.
After eight years of bouncing around, Brad finally settled down back in south Jersey, only miles from the house he grew up in. He is happily married and the proud father of two children. He is also "dad' to a diabetic, half-blind eight-year-old daschund named Friday who is little more than a lump on the couch most of the time.
When not filling cavities or performing root canals or extracting teeth or fabricating dentures, or writing, he spends his time playing with his kids, playing video games, reading comic books, reading non-illustrated books, and impotently rooting on his beloved Philadelphia Phillies or less than beloved Philadelphia Eagles.
His favorite authors are, but not limited to, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Clive Barker, Richard Matheson, Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, Simon Green, Jim Butcher, and Jeffery Deaver. He likes to think he learned something of the art of writing from each of these authors.
To this day, he wonders how the TV show LOST got so bad, so quickly. The wasted potential of the first three seasons still haunts him.

The next time that Amy came in, she said that her parents had spoken to her and she was doing better. As Dr. Mallory examined her mouth, her teeth were the same as last time, so he knew that her bulimia was under control and she had no more pitting in her teeth or gum disease.
However, what Dr. Brian Mallory does discover in Amy's mouth is something that he has never seen before and hopes never to see again. He is shaken to the core and when he discusses this finding with Amy, she doesn't seem like herself. She's a bit on the sinister side.
I loved this story. It is well-crafted and flows well. It's short enough to be read on a lunch break or coffee break. A sinister little story to delight the mind.
This story is maybe a fifteen-minute read, but it doesn't short-change the reader that feeling of expectation. There is a nice feeling of suspense for the reader as we wait to see exactly what the good doctor will discover in what is supposed to be a routine exam. From the well-chosen book cover with its unnerving stare to the patient's startling and ominous revelation, it all comes together for a good and kind of creepy read.
Brian Mallory has been practicing dentistry for 25 year and has had enough experience to believe he's probably seen it all at one time or another...not this day.
A creepy little tale that was well written as well as an enjoyable short read. However I didn't quite connect with this story like I did with Convissar's "Last Dance of A Black Widow". To me, it didn't have the same emotional impact nor conclude with a definitive ending...it almost appeared to be just beginning.
As it is...3 Stars
He does, however, find something else that gives him pause. Something that at first seems innocuous quickly escalates to disturbing, and rushes from there to horrifying!
This short story is very well-written and engrossing. It is extremely creepy, probably because of the mundane setting and ordinariness of circumstances. If Rod Serling were alive this story would make a perfect half-hour Twilight Zone.
I had only one minor complaint: There is no indenting of paragraphs. This is irritating but didn't affect my rating.
As I type this review, the Kindle version is free - grab it now at this price while you can.
