Read an excerpt.
David Ray killed eight students and then turned the gun on himself. He
thought the shooting and suicide would fix his world. It didn't. The
massacre threw Tanner Khan and the other survivors into chaos.
Twenty years later, Tanner and his fellow classmates reluctantly agree to
hold a reunion to lay the past to rest. Although they suffer from Post
Traumatic Stress Disorder, they come back to their hometown and reunite in the defunct school building. Old flames are rekindled, fears are ignited,
and their lives are about to explode in a whirlwind of memories, haunted by the spirit of David Ray.
Once inside the old school, they discover that a dark entity has joined
them. It has come to collect a debt, long overdue, and someone has to pay.
Will Tanner and his classmates overcome their fears and put the pieces of
their lives back together, or will they be consumed by their worst nightmare?
About the Author:
I grew up in Saginaw Michigan, moved to Aurora, Ohio in 78' and finally settled in Central Indiana where I met my wife and graduated from Indiana University. I'm an occasional runner, life long drummer, and household handyman. Over the years, I've done everything from working on an assembly line, installing HVAC units, teaching Sunday school, to running my own business. But through it all, I've always loved to write.
In 2006, something finally clicked when I heard the calling to begin writing novels - and write I did. Like many writers, I have a book or two that the world may never read, so don't ask about those. It is my hope, however, that the ones you do read will be good, inspiring you to think about life in a way that perhaps you hadn't before reading my work. Killing the Giants was my first novel, a political thriller, self-published in 2009 and currently in the process of being revised. I went on to write REUNION, The Rumblin', and then Act of Vengeance, my third full length novel and second supernatural thriller. I blog weekly at The Writing Bomb about the world of writing and indie publishing. That doesn't mean I wouldn't sign a book deal, it just means I've never been one to stand still and wait for something to happen. I have lots of stories to tell, and I'm ready to tell them now.
I love discovering new authors and am so glad that I came across Jeff Bennington. Jeff contacted me to be a part of his blog tour and I cannot have been more thrilled after reading the book. The writing is superb, emtional, and filled with suspense. The author takes an occurrence that has cropped up in our society and taken a new look at it from the perspective of years down the road. I was taken by the first paragraph and could not let go until the last word. The book is a great work of the imagination in trying to sort out the what if and the reality of what happens when the public stops hearing about the tragedies.
