Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's a lot of action for a novel that clocks in at less than 250 pages andWilson is mercilessly efficient in resolving various conflicts.... The idea that Declan Hunter, a PTSD-stricken veteran, might commit ahorrible crime in a misguided attempt to assuage his loneliness isintriguing...Wilson sprinkles the novel with staccato strings of words...The book has all the elements of a compelling mystery and an inventiveparanormal twist,....One must credit Wilson for treating her teenage protagonists withrespect, as they face adult dilemmas and resolve them with maturity andgrace."-Kirkus Reviews

"Connie Corcoran Wilson weaves a deftly fine scalpel in an age where a crude blade is more the norm. Her work is a smooth, subtle hybrid mix of science fiction, thriller, and horror that realizes a unique and pointed vision in the great tradition of Phillip K. Dick and Ray Bradbury. Her voice is a wonder to behold, at once dark and somber while maintaining a glimmer of hope that shines in the hearts of her heroes, who cling to the light. Like Stephen King, nothing escapes her discerning eye, the result of which is tale after tale that bleed life onto the page, both literally and figuratively."--Jon Land, bestselling author of the Caitlin Strong Series

"Wilson's characters come alive on the page. Comparisons to Stephen King, Dean Koontz and Philip K. Dick aside, Wilson has spent 33 years teaching students in this age range. She knows what she is talking about."--Gary Braver, author of "Flashback" and 8 other thrillers.

"THE COLOR OF EVIL series is old-school psychological horror, artfully blended with new-school shocks and twists. ..Bravo!" --Jonathan Maberry, New York Times best-selling author, multiple Bram Stoker winner
--This text refers to the paperback edition.

I am a University of Iowa grad and college professor with 59 years of writing experience. I've written for 5 newspapers and 7 blogs, founded 2 businesses, play 4 musical instruments, and have 2 children (born 19 years apart). I followed the '04 and '08 and '12 presidential campaigns "live," wrote for Yahoo, and am sometimes referred to as T.Q. (Trivia Queen) from my misspent hours in the British Pub Quiz room on AOL. I also have 6-year-old twin granddaughters (Ava pictured) who are great fun and for whom and with whom I write the Christmas Cats series (www.TheXmasCats.com).
