Hey, everyone. Time for another WIP Wednesday. A couple of weeks ago, I posted about Macabre Sanctuary, an anthology published by AIW Press. I wrote The Keeper’s House for inclusion in that collection. Today, I’ll tell you the story behind the story. Rain fell steadily on an April night in Deep East Texas. We’d had … Continue reading The Keeper’s House #WIPWednesday

The Blue Moon Murders #WIPWednesday

It's been another busy week around the Hall household, but I'm happy to say it's been an exciting one.
