Ruins
on Stone Hill
Heroes
of Ravenford Book 1
by
F. P. Spirit
Genre:
YA Epic Fantasy
 
It
has been one hundred and fifty years since the end of the Thrall
Wars, when the four dread Thrall Masters rained destruction down on
the land of Thac. The world has been relatively quiet since, but dark
things have started to rise around the little town of
Ravenford. 

 

 

 

The
town’s only hope lay in four newcomers: a fearless young warrior with
blades of fire, an elven wizard as deadly to his friends as his
enemies, a cynical halfling who might be an assassin, and a quiet
gnome whose very touch can heal. Together they set out to face the
creatures of darkness. Yet they soon find they are facing more than
just a few rogue monsters, for a greater force lurks behind them
all.

 

 

From
eerie woods to underground caves to haunted ruins, they encounter
terrifying monsters, creatures of the night, and demonic sorcery. Can
the young heroes stand against the forces of darkness, or will they
too fall prey to the evil that threatens to destroy Ravenford?

A DARK PATH
Series: Katrina Williams #3
by Robert E. Dunn
Genre: Mystery/Thriller
Pub Date: 8/7/2018
Sheriff’s detective Katrina “Hurricane” Williams confronts deep-rooted hate
and greed in the Missouri Ozarks in this riveting police procedural…
What at first appears to be a brush fire in some undeveloped bottom land
yields the charred remains of a young African-American man. As
sheriff’s Katrina Williams conducts her in-spection of the crime
scene, she discovers broken headstones and disturbed open graves in a
forgotten cemetery.
As Katrina attempts to sort out a complex backwoods criminal network
involving the Aryan Brotherhood, meth dealers, and the Ozarks
Nightriders motorcycle gang, she is confronted by the sudden
appearance of a person out of her own past who may be involved. And
what seems like a clear-cut case of racially motivated murder is
further complicated by rumors of hidden silver and dark family
histories. To uncover the ugly truth, Katrina will need to dig up
past crimes and shameful secrets that certain people would kill to
keep buried . . .
A PARTICULAR DARKNESS
Katrina Williams Book 2
Pub Date: 9/12/2017
From the author of A Living Grave comes a gripping police procedural
featuring sheriff’s detective Katrina Williams as she exposes the
dark underbelly of Appalachia . . .
Dredging up the Truth
Still recovering from tragedy and grieving a devastating loss, Iraq war
veteran and sheriff’s detective Katrina Williams copes the only way
she knows how—by immersing herself in work. A body’s just been
pulled from the lake with a fish haul, but what seems like a
straight-forward murder case over the poaching of paddlefish for
domestic caviar quickly becomes murkier than the depths of the lake.
Soon a second body is found—an illegal Peruvian refugee woman linked to
a charismatic tent revival preacher. But as Katrina tries to
investigate the enigmatic evangelist, she is blocked by antagonistic
FBI agents and Army CID personnel. When more young female refu-gees
disappear, she must partner with deputy Billy Blevins, who stirs
mixed feelings in her, to connect the lake murder to the refugees.
Katrina is no stranger to darkness, but cold-blooded conspirators
plan to make sure she’ll never again see the light of day . . .
A LIVING GRAVE
Katrina Williams Book 1
The first in a gritty new series featuring sheriff’s detective Katrina
Williams, as she investigates moonshine, murder, and the ghosts of
her own past…


BODY OF PROOF
Katrina Williams left the Army ten years ago disillusioned and damaged. Now a
sheriff’s detective at home in the Missouri Ozarks, Katrina is
living her life one case at a time—between mandated therapy
sessions—until she learns that she’s a suspect in a military
investigation with ties to her painful past.


The disappearance of a local girl is far from the routine distraction,
however. Brutally murdered, the girl’s corpse is found by a
bottlegger whose information leads Katrina into a tangled web of
teenagers, moonshiners, motorcycle clubs, and a fellow veteran
battling illness and his own personal demons. Unraveling each thread
will take time Katrina might not have as the Army investigator
turns his searchlight on the devastating incident that ended her
military career. Now Katrina will need to dig deep for the
truth—before she’s found buried…
Robert E. Dunn was born an Army brat and grew up in the Missouri Ozarks. He
wrote his first book at age eleven turning a series of Jack Kirby
comic books into a hand written novel.

Over many years in the, mostly, honest work of video and film production
he produced everything from documentaries, to training films and his
favorite, travelogues. He returned to writing mystery, horror, and
fantasy fiction for publication after the turn of the century. It
seemed like a good time for change even if the changes were not
always his choice.

Mr. Dunn is the author of the horror novels, THE RED HIGHWAY, MOTORMAN,
and THE HARROWING, as well as the Katrina Williams mystery/thriller
series, A LIVING GRAVE, A PARTICULAR DARKNESS, and the upcoming A
DARK PATH.

Jessica and Briana co-authored Seeking the Storyteller an interview

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Ok Girls, how long have you been writing?

 

Jessica: I’ve been writing on and off for years.  I don’t remember my first story or when I started, but the earliest one I can remember with any detail was a fanfiction for Bucky O Hare and the Toad Wars back in the early 90’s, I might have written some horrible Star Trek stuff before that.

923179_505218142859054_986057935_n

Briana:  I have a clear memory of writing back when I was 9 years old.  It was a pop up book made with construction paper and crayons and featured farm animals.  I have no idea what the story itself was about, but I remember those details.  I’ve been writing on and off ever since, from fanfiction to what I write now.

 

Tell us where you were born and where do you live now.

Jessica: I was born in Missouri but moved to Minnesota shortly after.  I’ve grown up for most of my life in Minnesota around the Twin Cities.  Currently I live in St Paul with my partner and sometimes coauthor.

 

Briana:  I was born in Chicago and grew up there or in the suburbs nearby for 18 years of my life.  I left home to go to Iowa State University, where I met Jessica online, and after graduation in 2006 I moved to Minnesota to be with her.  We live together in St. Paul right now with our cats and geeky things.

 

How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it?

Jessica:  All ideas (more…)
