About Harry Carpenter
Harry has since won the "Best Short Short Story" award from the Veteran's Administration writing contest and was featured as the bestselling author in local book stores.
Using his experiences in the United States Army, various retail and fast food establishments, childhood encounters, and chaotic first marriage, he has developed a mind for creativity.
He is a huge fan of cats, video games, and quirky science fiction and horror movies. He also films an internet web series called "The Web-Pool" on YouTube, as well as volunteers with the "Charm City Ghostbusters," a charity organization out of Baltimore who, as the name dictates, dress as the Ghostbusters 1984 movie.
Harry now lives in Baltimore with his wife and cats.

From the Preface:
"As I mounted the m249 machine gun against my shoulder, I felt the weight of the entire weapon. I had never really had the opportunity to fire one of these bad boys before, but by god, there was a first for everything. I flipped the safety selector switch, removing the weapon from safe. I closed my eyes for a brief moment, knowing time was of the essence. I reopened them, steadied my breathing as I squeezed softly on the trigger. I fired small round bursts into the crowd of these things. I barely knew how to work one of these because my military career thus far has been magazine-fed weapons. I prayed to whoever was listening for the belt to remain free with no snag. I continued to three to five-round burst my way to the base exchange. The good news: these things were going down with regular ammo. The bad news: I don’t know if I have enough ammo for all of them."
Imagine waking up to your entire world being FUBAR...
Iraq, 2010. Army Specialist Jason Chantry was at his wit's end with a complacent, dull deployment. That all changed for him on a fateful night. Blood, bodies, and destruction as far as the eye could see. Chantry and his fellow squad members were admin, not door kicking infantrymen! Together, they'll scream, shoot, and, did we mention scream? They'll get their way to wherever they can figure is safe by any means necessary.
Part one of an epic four-book series, Blackout is only the start of what's to come.
"The book was dope, I can't wait for the next one!" -Ronnie S.
"Only working around military people, Harry developed a great environment with real characters. I have some questions that the next book needs to answer!" -Tom
As a former soldier in the United States Army, Harry always found discrepancies with non-military or non-law enforcement writers trying to write their assessment on what it feels like to be in the middle of turmoil. Harry worked hard to ensure accuracy with every aspect of the military, only having to worry about injecting monsters into the story. Every detail was considered. The camaraderie. The smell of the country. The feel of the recoil of a weapon. The taste of fear.

A compilation of short stories. The stories are written based on true-ish stories that happened, or almost happened.
An ordinary night. An ordinary guy. Freddy had no idea what he was in for. A demon who can pass from person to person, just by the sheer mention of his story. Plagued by this demon named The General, Freddy is faced with the decision to pass this curse off to someone else, or meet his ultimate end at the hands of this ancient being.
Young Robin is plagued by nightmares of an evil dog. The dog shows up in nightmares, and she cannot break away from how vivid the dreams are. Scared to go to bed, afraid of the dark, and terrified of the closet is standard fare for the average 8-year-old, but what if there was more to be seen lurking in the shadows?
The Demon Bathell is an urban legend told between friends who are very unassuming that he is real. Once conjured, Bathell will haunt and hunt you, killing you in the most terrifying way: Using your worst fear as your death device. Reaching into your mind, it pulls out what terrifies you most, to ensure your end is the most unpleasant possible.
Imagine it. You're sitting at a bar, restaurant or other public hangout. You can't help it, but you overhear a conversation. The content catches your ear. It's someone's personal story, struggle and woes.
Not to be a Nosey Nelly, you try to overhear this guy telling his table of buddies a horrendous tale of love, life, and betrayal. It sounds like he went through an ordeal. It's free gossip. It's juicy news. It's also comforting to hear you weren't alone in your nasty blowout relationship.
That's what it's like to read this book.
The story delves deep into personal experiences, tragedies, and most of all, abuse. Chapter by chapter the story unfolds to explore the turbulent relationship with an ex-wife, from meeting back in High School to the ultimate fall of the relationship at the hands of extramarital relationships.
Along the way, many people were players in this tale of love, hate, and humor. As it unfolds, the tale will prove humorous, serious, and just plain old head-shaking crazy.
Dodging and weaving the crazy, we will go through various mental stages, crazy WTF moments, and sometimes comical points in time throughout the journey.

Time to expand the mind! Or empty it.
Before you lie a collection of poems, songs and short musings, written over the course of twenty years. Some are poetic, while some are just downright odd.
I do not claim to be a poet, nor am I a top songwriter. The words expressed dig deep into my heart and soul to pour our what I was expressing and feeling at the time. There is heartache, hurt, and betrayal. But in contrast, you will find light, hope and love!
