More About the Author

Thanks for visiting my page.

My most recent novels from established publishers are TROPIC OF DARKNESS, a supernatural thriller set in Havana, Cuba (Schusters), UNDER THE ICE, a character-driven zombie novel, and HOT BLOOD, a world-spanning epic featuring vampires and other immortal creatures (both from Samhain), and most recently my first ever full-blown crime thriller, THE DESERT KEEPS ITS DEAD, set in Arizona and centered on a private detective with an unusual, and tragic, past(Telos Publishing).

I'm also the author of more than 100 published short stories, enough to fill 7 collections -- the latest being THE UNIVERSAL AND OTHER TERRORS (Dark Renaissance Press) -- and my work has appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, Asimov's SF, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Weird Tales and numerous top anthologies including Year's Best Horror.

I first started self-publishing on Kindle to revive stories and short novels that originally saw print years ago, hoping to find them a new audience as eBooks, and most of my self-pubbed work falls into that category. But I've written some new fiction for the e-reader too ... in particular, I've continued the Raine's Landing series of full-length supernatural adventures that first saw print with Eos/HarperCollins.

The list of my publications on Amazon just keeps on growing, and I've plans to add more new fiction in 2015, futuristic mysteries and superhero stories. Meanwhile, please feel free to take a look at all my titles. If you like thrillers or tales with a strong fantasy edge, you'll probably find something that will suit you.

If you love the fantasy genre, like The Dresden Files, you will love this series as well. I hope this series never ends!

Deadly Violet, along with the other Raine's Landing novels are page turners. Not a boring part in the whole series. Deadly Violet left you with a clif hanger at the end, so I'm looking forward to the next in the series.

What can I say? As entertaining as the other novels, perhaps even more so. I've been a fan of Raine's Landing since I purchased the first novel in the series from the Science Fiction Book Club, and they just keep coming, each one as satisfactory as the last. I always look forward to opening a novel whose title has the subheading: A Raine's Landing Novel.

This one brings back familiar characters from past stories...Boston cop Lauren, a recovering Saul Hobart, and a pregnant Cassie, trying to maintain a normal life with her boyfriend, the recently-deceased adept Quinn Maycott, as well as others only mentioned previously. There's a little more on Willetts, who came to the Landing, committed what he considers a criminal sin, and stays to work out his own punishment. None of these side stories are enough to detract from the main theme, namely, why does the mysterious violet light suddenly gleam and then nasty things appear and do away with homes and their inhabitants in particularly gruesome ways? It also answers some questions I, and no doubt other readers, have raised through the years.

I'd call this one a nail-biter, and I'm not going to say any more for Spoilers can pop up unexpectedly whenever one speaks about the Landing. Just read it for yourself, and you'll see what I mean.

This novel was supplied by the author and no remuneration was involved in the writing of this review.

Deadly Violet (A Raine's Landing Novel)

DEADLY VIOLET
A RAINE'S LANDING NOVEL

Fantasy/horror

Welcome back to Raine's Landing, the town that was built by the original Salem Witches as an escape from the infamous witch trials (1692). However, the town ended up on the wrong side of the wrong witch and found itself cursed in perpetuity. Anyone born in Raine's Landing can never leave and those not born there find it extremely hard to find or visit the town. It is due to this curse That Raine's Landing, a town populated primarily by magic users, exists just off a major highway in the present.

There are a few people who don't use magic in this town. Ross Devries--a former cop--and his tough sidekick, Cass Mallory, are two of them. Not only that, their peculiar backgrounds make them perfect problem solvers for whenever magic gets out of hand, something that seems to happen with some regularity in Raine's Landing.

Take this day for example: People have begun disappearing. And giant, purple worms with massive, circular rows of teeth that rotate are grinding unprepared people into nothingness. Then come the little bubbles of violet light that shoot through everything and everyone they find, repeatedly, destroying them just as surely as a "grinder" would. But when houses begin to disappear and people are attacked by their worst nightmares, even the town's adepts can't stop the destruction.

They keep trying though. Trying to understand and communicate with the intelligent, violet life-forms who seem to be behind all that is happening.

I was expecting some of Richards finer work with this novel. After all, his previous books had set us up for that.
