“ excellent work of suspenseful horror fiction... I absolutely loved the dialogue and East Texas vibe... definitely recommend The Haunt at Hogg Run for horror fans looking for a fully immersive and spine-tingling experience.” ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews, K.C. Finn (5 STARS)

It's not awkward at all when you're forced on a family vacation with your new stepmother and her young daughter. Reluctantly, Macy Donner agrees to it to please her father. But camping? Even worse.

Beset by ominous weather, power outages, and hulking shadows heralded by terrifying screams from the darkness, Macy realizes that she's their only hope for survival—a thin hope, at best. Although she's learned a thing or two from her monster-hunting friends, she's not equipped for the horrors of the nearby, abandoned haunted house, or for its long-buried secrets—secrets that want to kill her.

“Themes of love and family bonding, although rare in horror stories, predominate the storyline. With both fantastical and real-life monsters, suspenseful chase sequences, and a brave protagonist, The Haunt at Hogg Run is a real treat for fans of the horror genre.” ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews, Shrabastee Chakraborty (5 STARS)

Sample text:

But then, Trevor was in front of her, arms outstretched as if to push the monster back. He couldn’t stop the momentum, of course, but it was enough of a delay that Manda could scuttle backwards.

Trevor went down, but the monster didn’t stop. The crowd swarmed and she lost sight of her friend. Was he okay? Where had he gone? Through the briefest of windows amid the hurried legs, Manda saw him on the ground, motionless, but she didn’t have time to register what it meant.

The monster appeared again. So close. Blood dripping from the horns on its face. This couldn’t be real. It was just a magic trick, right?

“Manda!” The voice cut through the screams.

Her mother would be right there.

“Mommy!” she yelled. She hardly ever called her mother that anymore.

In a flash, her mother was there, kneeling in front of her and wrapping Manda up in her arms. She loved the way her mother smelled: faintly of flowers and laundry detergent. She’d always smelled like that, for as long as Manda could remember.

She didn’t really understand what was happening when her mother collapsed on top of her. Didn’t really process the overwhelming amount of weight that pressed her into the cold mud. Didn’t really understand the source of the warm wet that seeped into her favorite shirt. There were tears. Screaming. Yelling. Manda couldn’t take it all in. Something inside her brain broke her away from the reality of the situation and tried to shield her. From the monster. From the magician. From the limp weight of her mother.
