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

The first story alone, The Beaulahville Gospel Jubilee, is worth the cover price, about the Devil putting in an appearance at a mountainside church picnic. "Get thee behind me Satan" says the preacher, "there's no cutting in line." I found myself telling the story "Apple Headed Dolly" to my's that kind of simple, effective story that you just might hear on a cool night around a campfire. I remember picking up some of Scott's early paperbacks at the local bookstore years ago and enjoying his unique brand of storytelling. Missing Pieces was a free download the day I got my Kindle, but at .99 cents there are a LOT of stories filling this download out to the length of a complete novel. Highly recommended.

I have a few of Scott Nicholson's short story collections on my to-be-read pile, so when I wanted to read one as part of this Summer of Shorts Marathon I had the task of trying to choose just one. His collections tend to follow a particular genre like thrillers, zombies, crime, etc. So when I saw this one, which happens to be a more hodge-podge collection, I decided to give it a shot.

Missing Pieces brings together ten stories of varying genres, but all of them carry the familiar style of Scott Nicholson, steeped with southern sensibility. The story that maybe best exemplifies the southern flavor of horror is the first one, "Beaulahville Gospel Jubilee." I mean, the story starts with the words, "Tater salad," and has a devilish man mingling among the potluck crowd in search of souls.

"Apple Head Dolly" was an effective story for me, reminding me of that impish greed inherent in so many little boys. This one was followed by two of the creepiest tales in the collection, "Fallow" and "The Rocking Chair."

One of the stories is actually the first chapter to his novel, Kiss Me or Die, which might be a good way to market your longer works, but I've never been a fan of that sort of thing unless it's some kind of bonus material.

If I had to pick a favorite story, it might be "Darker With the Day," which is a unique twist on the zombie genre, about a soldier who has been infected and is trying to get home to his wife in a world laid to waste.

Mr. Nicholson has become an expert at providing short stories that quickly draw in the reader, effectively grab his attention . . . and then won't let him go for days afterward. This collection proves that the winning streak is still going strong. Some of these stories draw out a chuckle, some build a sense of wonder (even if it's tinged with the faintest trace of disgust -- Floating Cathedral, I'm looking at you here). But all the stories invite us to crawl around in Mr. Nicholson's subconscious and make ourselves at home for a while. It's a fascinating place to be.
