Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The heart always finds its way home ... Lock the door! Col. Ross Clayton is a dedicated scientist, devoted to his wife Irene, his ten year old son, Tommy, and his four year old daughter, Amanda. He is also a dead-ringer for Blake Arletti, a hit man trying to escape his past and outrun an assassin. When their paths cross, Ross's life comes apart in horrific fashion. Having fallen ill with a mutated virus, Ross is implanted with ERIC-D, an experimental, radio-isotope fueled pacemaker. And when he is mistaken for Blake, murdered and buried in the park, it isn't long before the damaged pacemaker enhances the mutation of the virus and Ross is reanimated in a near primordial state. Now, neither living nor dead, he is faced with the loss of everything he ever cared about. And when the assassin crosses paths with his family and murders Amanda, Ross must force himself to find one last strand of humanity. In a desperate act to bring back the daughter he loves, Ross sets in motion something more chilling than anything anyone could imagine.

Born in Philadelphia, Pa., I served with the U.S. Army Medical Corps during Vietnam as a Clinical Specialist. Afterward, I attended West Chester University of Pennsylvania and attained my Bachelor's Degree in Microbiology. My Master's work was done in Virology. I have since worked at several biotech companies as a virologist, some with biodefense contracts (a great platform for weird story ideas). I am the author of several short stories, with three published novels and three more in the works, one of which, a paranormal horror novel, should be finished before the end of the year. Two of my shorts, Weeping Willow and The Progeny have been accepted for publication in "Horror In Words" magazine. Weeping Willow appeared in their August 09 issue, and is now available as a reprint in John Betancourt's Wildside Press's Vampire Megapak. House for Sale and The Last Transaction appeared in issue #10 of "Horror Bound" magazine. (House for Sale and The Last Transaction also appear in my collection, 13 Echoes).
