I’ve been doing mostly novels for the past couple of years, but I enjoy writing novellas too. I got an idea for one and decided to write it. Here’s the (unedited) description: Chicago is gripped by terror. Someone is brutally murdering sixteen-year-old girls, and the authorities are baffled.

The wait is over. My new novel (my fifth Samhain Horror novel, my sixth novel overall) is here.
