Scary Books

Over the years I’ve written all sorts of scary books, and since it’s nearly Halloween thought I might tell you about some of them.

Deadly Feast

This one started out as a Tempe Crabtree mystery, but as Tempe’s character developed in a wholly different way, I had to change the main character.

Speaking of Tempe, here’s another I thought would be one of her mysteries, The Devil’s Foothold.

I loved writing it, but it turned out to be more of a Christian horror.

And yes, there’s one more that started out to be a Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery, Deeds of Darkness.

And probably the scariest of all, Wishing Makes it So, which probably falls into the psychological horror genre–the tale of a really bad little girl.

Of course any mystery worth reading has scary elements in it–but these are the kind of books some folks love to read during this spooky season.

And if your taste runs more to ghosts and haunted houses, here’s a couple you might want to try. This is a Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery that revolves around a very haunted house:

And a haunted house is features in the latest Rocky Bluff P.D. series, Violent Departures.

Have a most spooky Halloween!

    1. I adore kids and have accepted there are no grandchildren in the future—my grown children confirmed that, but children do come out with so many amazing ideas and thoughts ( unfettered).


      1. Marilyn; I live in NJ ( south Jersey) ; we have bonafide, historically stamped, haunted houses: we are the home of the Jersey Devil, and in the past, my home was haunted. It’s very accepted around here.


    1. Lot of folks really liked Wishing Makes it So–the girl’s hair color is wrong on the cover, but I had no say over that. I got lots of the ideas for that book from various grandkids.


  1. Marilyn; some of these sound wonderful. I am ready to embark on a new writing endeavor—events surrounding the premise are definitely scary, but….it’s all true, and I am concerned about how to present it.


      1. I will try—heck, I have to be careful; incriminating evidence against several people.
        Thank you, thank you.
