More About the Author

Though I enjoyed writing stories at an early age, I spent a good deal of the 90s earning a B.A in Psychology and a Masters in Information Technology. My creative outlet came in the form of penning song lyrics instead of prose. After finally having a bit of life under my belt, I turned my attention back to fiction, writing several short stories that can be found both online and in print. The release of my novella, Riverside Blues, by award-winning publisher Earthling Publications was met with glowing reviews. While I also enjoy photography, reading, playing guitar and singing, I get the most joy from being a husband and father.

Format: Paperback
Some of the best horror stories are those that center on the fear that we create ourselves; those that start not from without, but from within. Tomblin not only created such a tale, but he mastered it. Not quite a ghost story, but dipped lavishly in the supernatural, this book may just have trumped, nay surpassed, my favorite book of all time. I've been looking for this book since I first discovered horror and I wouldn't part with it for all the tea in china!

The plot is refreshing and original in its narration. Sure, we've seen the set-up and outline before, but once the scene is established, Tomblin takes a 360 turn and takes it in a wicked direction. Full of implied danger and subtle clues, the ending is guaranteed to chill you to the bone. A creepy, psychological thriller, this book can be read over and over again.

Avoiding the allure to drag on long after it's necessary, Tomblin's style of writing is tight and concise. His descriptive narrative brings to life Gordon's surroundings and his dialog adds vitality to it. You can tell that he's comfortable within the boundaries of writing a ghost story, and are shocked and amazed when he breaks free of those chains and revels in his freedom.

Although this book is very involved, it's also, shockingly, a quick and simple read. The pace is set from the moment you enter the book, moving you along peacefully at first and then picking up speed while your eyes were closed. Having read it in only 3 hours, it wasn't until I closed the book that I realized my pulse was racing and beads of sweat were dripping down my neck.

Almost becoming a character itself, the atmosphere is hypnotic and captivating. Tomblin captures the south, immersing you into Gordon's world.

It is in my view correct to say that thrillers, works of suspense, mysteries have as main object to hold readers spellbound thereby taking them away from the realities of their lives for a while. This book succeeds very well in that object. It leads from the ordinary every day life to the unusual and then combines the natural with the paranormal in a way that I have never come across before. To say more might spoil an excellent book for the next reader.

From the first page I fell in love with this book. How sad it would be to have something like that happen and then after all of that time to find out what he did about the disappearance of his beloved wife. I loved the ending. It was perfectly written and detailed.
