Sins
of the past could destroy all of their futures . . .
For generations,
Quentin Marsh’s family has seen its share of tragedy, though he
remains skeptical that their misfortunes are tied to a centuries-old
curse. But to placate his pregnant sister, Quentin makes the
pilgrimage to Point Pleasant, West Virginia, hoping to learn more
about the brutal murder of a Shawnee chief in the 1700s. Did one of
the Marsh ancestors have a hand in killing the chief —the man who
cursed the town with his dying breath?
While historian
Sarah Sherman doesn’t believe in curses either, she’s compelled
to use her knowledge of Point Pleasant to uncover the long-buried
truth. The river town has had its own share of catastrophes, many
tied to the legendary Mothman, the winged creature said to haunt the
woods. But Quentin’s arrival soon reveals that she may have more of
a stake than she realized. It seems that she and Quentin possess
eerily similar family heirlooms. And the deeper the two of them dig
into the past, the more their search enrages the ancient mystical
forces surrounding Point Pleasant. As chaos and destruction start to
befall residents, can they beat the clock to break the curse before
the Mothman takes his ultimate revenge? . . .

What is True Death?

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

I began writing in high school after my family moved to Chicago from Michigan, leaving behind the first girl I fell for. I lost touch with her and knew she enjoyed reading books, so I decided that I would write a book and get her attention. At the time I wasn’t big into reading, in fact I had only finished one book series in my life to that point, but once I started writing I realized how much fun it was to create whole new worlds and watch the story play itself out on the pages. That girl and I have parted ways but I still thank her for allowing me to find my passion in life.

What makes me passionate about writing is being a creator to a world that never existed before I thought of them. To watch the story play out from my head to the paper and ink, its a feeling that is hard to describe. With True Despair, the third book in the True Death series I have written, I watched a scene play out differently on the pages them it did in my head, it was amazing. Seeing my story take on (more…)
