More About the Author

Sign up for my Tao of Boo newsletter for giveaways, free books, and announcements of new releases:

I believe the writer only creates half the story, and that you complete it by bringing your imagination, experience, and heart to the tale. I am happy to share the journey with you.

I've written more than 20 novels, about 80 short stories, four children's books, some comic books, screenplays, and a couple of non-fiction books, as well as five collaborations with J.R. Rain. Many of my tales are based on supernatural legends from the Southern Appalachian Mountains, and I also write mystery and suspense thrillers that are most often compared to the work of Stephen King and Dean Koontz.

I've also published Liquid Fear and Chronic Fear with Amazon's Thomas & Mercer imprint and McFall with 47North, as well as a number of audiobooks and foreign translations. I love hearing from you, because you're the reason I do this, so let's connect! Learn more about my work at

Another reviewer called this book "an emotional rollercoaster" and it sure was for me, too. I was sad, angry, I laughed insanely, and I hated this book at times. I wanted to throw it at the wall (except it's in my Kindle and, of course, I didn't want to ruin my eReader), but I couldn't stop. I'm not a thriller lover and now I know why. I want my characters to be flawed, troubled, even tortured but I want them to be basically good people, and the characters in this novel are anything but decent.
So why am I giving this novel 5 stars? Because, it is so well written. There is never a dull moment; each scene moves the story forward, giving just enough hints to build tension. I stayed up half the night, reading, wanting to know what's going to happen next. There are so many surprises, yet there is enough foreshadowing to lead the reader along the way to its shocking end. Lovers of thrillers will have a heyday with this. Highly recommended.

Jacob Wells wakes to the smell of smoke. Flames engulf the hallway to his 9-year-old daughter's bedroom. Frantic he tries to save her, in the process sustaining a dislocated hip and second-degree burns to over twenty percent of his body...

A psychological thriller that grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go, not even at its shocking conclusion. It literally tore at my insides. Intense and emotional, this is Scott Nicholson at his finest.

Powerful, dark and brilliant.

The writerly craft of this book is amazing. The description of pain is so right on I will refer people to it when they ask what my Fibromyalgia is like. The story pulls you along as your understanding of the characters deepens and changes. Saying any more might give something away and you need to experience this book without any forewarning. The only thing keeping me from giving it a 5+ is that I hated the ending. It's not badly done, it's just not the type of ending I wanted. Mr. Nicholson is a wonderful writer, I just wish he'd write something less dark and twisted for me to read.

I've never actually written a review for Amazon before. I'm a lover of books, and since receiving my Kindle as a gift last Christmas, have amassed quite a large collection of old and new favorites. I browse Kindle lists for free and cheap books, so I know there's a certain amount of "don't complain, it's free" talk. However, I am vaguely insulted that I spent ANY amount of money on this book.

I am no prude, and I don't mind my characters dark and twisted. This story, however, was so poorly written from the beginning that I found myself skipping over great chunks of inane prose just to get to the next plot point. The description of Christine's funeral actually made me giggle in a time where the author was clearly attempting, however poorly, to elicit sympathy.

I'm the type of reader who laughs aloud, cries desperately, and wholly identifies and sympathizes with characters. In short, I totally get into books. But not this book. I rolled my eyes through the entire thing, put the book down several times in disgust, and complained bitterly to my bewildered husband. I have a curious nature, though, so I had to finish. I read the last quarter in about 10 minutes, skipping whole paragraphs in my vain desire to see if ANYTHING about these characters was redeeming.

Short review: this book was an affront to my love of books and sense of dignity. I'm all for corrupt, detestable characters if there are other essentially good, if flawed, characters to balance out the evil. These characters were so contemptible that I found myself actually hoping they'd all just kill each other and end the book a good 100 pages sooner. This book was depressing, boring, and ludicrous all at the same time. I wish I could get those hours back.

New author Scott Nicholson's "Disintegration" is the first psychological thriller that I have read. It is about twin brothers who vie for their family empire built on cruelty, deceit and very dark secrets.

From the beginning of chapter one to the very last chapter this story is so detailed, very intense, emotionally exhausting, vividly descriptive, mind boggling, heart pounding and heart wrenching book that I have read.

At the end of the first chapter I was in tears and said- this book is not for me at all. I put my Kindle down and found myself picking it up a bit later to see what the next chapter would be like- I did this through out the entire book-- put it down, pick it back up again, put it down yet again saying nope I can't finish this book. Well this was quite an experience for me and quite a ride let me tell you. I did finish this book and only skipped over the chicken area.

I found myself gasping at times, saying thing's like OMG, put this book down , take a break NOW, do not pick this up again etc. How Scott molded this entire story together is an art. His mind and thought's keep pulling you in even when you don't want to finish this book.

Then when Joshua brings Jacob to their father's house, the empire, and all the evil that happened their, this story turned into a very dark psychological thriller to me, yet I still could not put the dang story down, I was sitting on the edge of my seat at times.

Question #1
Actually, that was exactly what I thought as well, that he was possibly Jacob's evil side, not the actual evil twin. It was a back and forth concept for me for a good part of the book. I think I enjoyed the not knowing for sure, at first.

Question #6
I don't think a sane man would have made that trade but I think it's very well established that Jacob was not a sane man. I actually would have enjoyed seeing this ending explored further. It would have been interesting to see how the "perfect" life really measured up to Jacob's... Read More

Question #5
I think Renee was just as guilty as Jacob for her actions or lack of actions throughout the book. She needed to be held accountable for all of the things that she was guilty of. She may not have been directly responsible for Mattie's death but she certainly wasn't blameless. She knew that she... Read More

Question #4
I don't remember the exact scene but I recall at one point Jacob was writing with his left hand and Renee had to correct him. It seemed odd to me that she was so nonchalant about telling him to switch his writing hand. That's part of what made me suspect she knew more than we were led to believe.

Question #3
I really thought that Jacob had some type of split personality disorder and that is why he was abusing himself in such a manner. As I said in another thread, at times I doubted the existence of Joshua.
