But when the same gift unknowingly puts her in contact with a serial killer, the grieving couple must unite to face all odds and save themselves and Louisa before it’s too late.
A Thousand Sleepless Nights, is the first story I wrote under a pseudonym, Michael King. Why the break from my normal fare of tightly-wound suspense? I had a story I needed to tell.
Back in 2008 I was diagnosed with colon cancer. That’s the sort of thing that changes your life, alters the way you see the world, time, moments, others, everything. I’m not the same person I used to be.
So I needed to write a story about cancer and the battle it rages and the good that can come of it. And that’s how the idea for A Thousand Sleepless Nights was born. I hope you’ll check it out. It’s a story that’s straight from my heart and infused with so much of my own experience with cancer. If you’ve been touched by cancer in any way, either personally or through the life of a friend or loved one, you need to read this story. You can find out more here.
MIRROR IMAGE, is a short story I co-wrote with Aaron Reed. Last year Aaron won a contest to write a short story with me.
At only $0.99 it’s a great way to sample my writing. Written in an Alfred Hitchcock-esque style, it dares you to figure out the ending.
Sometimes, things aren’t what they seem. Sometimes, they’re much worse.
When Dennis, a loner with a wounded past, discovers he looks identical to author Joshua Norton he convinces himself that Norton is living a life he doesn’t deserve. Curiosity takes a dark turn when Dennis begins obsessing over Norton’s seemingly perfect life and eventually plots to switch places with the undeserving author. But reality isn’t always what it appears to be and what Dennis finds isn’t exactly what he expected.
Don’t miss this story!
Also, check out my novella, Rearview, part of the 7 Hours series. It’s only $1.99 on Amazon and has received some very good reviews. It’s fast-paced, intriguing, and also written in the style of those old Alfred Hitchcock tales. I think you’ll enjoy it.
In addition to my writing, I offer coaching/consulting services and am available to speak on a variety of topics including writing, living well, and surviving cancer/trials.
