Dennis Shore is a best-selling writer, who keeps his readers on the edge of their seats with thrilling, spooky stories. After his wife dies and his daughter goes to college, Dennis is left alone to sort out his life. 

When he gets a severe case of writer’s block he does the unthinkable for a seasoned wordsmith: He plagiarizes another person’s manuscript. Not only that, but he also receives kudos for what he’s “written.”  Dennis thinks he might have dodged a bullet, but only until Cillian Reed starts harassing him. Turns out Dennis stole the manuscript from him. As Cillian’s threats increase, Dennis could lose his career, sanity and even his life. But he has nowhere to go. Click here to purchase this book.

The townsfolk and their inspiring stories might be just what the Deena needs for her broken heart to heal. A Dr. Seuss-quoting plumber, a handsome social worker and middle-school students show Deena that she can embrace life again.
