Instead of enjoying her time in London, Kelsey lies and sneaks her way into the confidence of the people who wanted the woman gone. This ghost was a troublemaker in life. How does Kelsey know she’s not playing tricks in the afterlife?

Loss, lust and loneliness.

TERMINAL collects DRIVE, ANGELA, and THE END into one volume.

DRIVE is a psychological thriller that tells the story of David, an ageing delivery man by day, and storied serial killer by night. DRIVE considers what might drive a man to kill, and what might drive a killer to stop.

ANGELA, is a bleak and unflinching gothic horror in which we meet a lonely, middle aged woman who must live with the legacy of her family's dark secret, the madness that grows in the absence of love, and a closet full of delicate skeletons.

THE END is a zombie horror told from the zombie's perspective and is one woman's account of the end of her life, her family, and everything.

Together they form a loose trinity, connected by theme, length and tone, and the literal train that runs through them.

The Horrors of Church Hill series is set in Richmond Virginia's most haunted neighborhood, Church Hill. The "other world" beneath the surface of historical Church Hill in Richmond, Virginia is more than ghost stories and urban legends: it's a sub-culture founded by slaves and settlers. It began in Jamestown in 1615 and spread quickly to the Landing before the James River Falls, and on up what became Church Hill. Death chants raising the dead and curses passed on for centuries of crimes, a city that can't seem to forgive itself.

The other world can still be found.

It's here.

Then Denny returns to the neighborhood the next night and attacks his own mother and takes his own younger sister back to the mansion with him and they both subsequently disappear,and the Sheriff becomes even more involved in the mystery, this time by dragging Scott back to the site of the abandoned mansion—a place where a terrible tragedy had occurred many years before—leading the confused teen to the most shocking discovery, and then starting him and his new friend Sarah on a dark quest to find their missing friend, no matter where it takes them, or when.

Fiona Graves did not expect much from Corona Heights, just a quiet space to call home while she went about the business of rebuilding her life. On the surface, the setup was perfect: cheap rent, a great location, and complete anonymity. Beneath the surface, however, Corona Heights was something else entirely.

Cursed with paper thin walls, the building kept few of its tenants' secrets. One secret, however, had remained safely buried for years, until Fiona's strange encounter with her neighbor - a ten-year-old girl named Olivia - threatened to uncover it, and the unimaginable consequences inherent in its being.

As she wages a crusade to regain the trust of her estranged son, Fiona must also confront the ever-tightening grip of an addiction she has yet to overcome, a neighbor whose erratic behavior grows more dangerous by the hour, and a seemingly innocent little girl whose dark connection to Corona Heights threatens not only the child's life, but the life that Fiona is trying so desperately to reclaim.

And it all begins with a foreboding message from the girl whose face Fiona cannot see, but whose voice is hauntingly clear.
