I was invested through the entire novel, trying to figure out who the imposter was. I was not even close to guessing. I can’t stress enough the uniqueness of the novel and the writing style.

Meet Daniel Norrish

When Dan’s not tapping away on a computer keyboard, he brews black beer and watches rugby. He has a degree in “Professional Writing and Publishing,” as well as Honours in creative writing from Curtin University in Western Australia. His goal is to produce suspenseful, intriguing crime fiction that propels the reader through engaging landscapes with constant action and unforeseeable surprises. Stephanie Saxon, the protagonist of “The Bodies We Won’t Bury,” is crafted to be foolish and, at times, irritating. Readers might find themselves hating the violent detective as she makes the wrong decisions over and over again, leading to the horrible murders of undeserving innocents. Sometimes, a detective is given more power than they deserve. Saxon is based on an age bracket, so readers might recognise the impulsivity and harsh demeanour of an angry young adult. An angry young adult with a police badge, taser and a secret, unlicensed revolver. Kidnapping interests Dan more than murder and other crimes, primarily because kidnapping can build more suspense. Are they dead? Are they being held prisoner? In “The Imposter,” thirteen kidnap victims tell the story of their experiences with a masked vigilante. The reader is presented with the perspectives of the captives, most of whom are murdered before they can share their knowledge with anyone other than the reader.

Penny Dreadful

Penny Boudreaux didn’t believe in ghosts…until they started talking to her.

 Ever since her mother’s death five years ago, 16-year-old Penny has had a fascination with death, even opting for part time work at her mother’s old funeral home. Between the stresses of school, work and toxic friends, Penny could use a mother’s guidance. But she never believed anyone could return from the dead.
 Then she begins hearing whispers in quiet rooms and seeing strange figures nobody else can see. And when she meets a mysterious boy named Stephen Campbell, she realizes he may provide the answers she seeks about the Gift she suspects she possesses — the Gift of necromancy.
 With her newfound Gift — and Stephen’s help — Penny sets out to resurrect her mother. But her experience is limited and her patience thin, especially when an otherworldly encounter leads her to believe her mother’s death wasn’t the accident she thought. Now Penny must bring back and avenge her mother without harming Stephen — or herself.
 An equal mix of romance and horror, Penny Dreadful will appeal to fans of Stephenie Meyer and Stephen King alike.

Meet I. Savage

I. Savage is a bestselling author and creative consultant, specializing in helping clients move their careers and dreams forward. Born and raised in Kittrell, North Carolina, he earned his BA in TV/Film/Communications from UNC-Chapel Hill and an MA in Psychology from City College, but the fearless educators at Zeb Vance Elementary are among the first to nourish his love of storytelling. In third grade, he’d disappear for hours into the class storage room with his friend, Sharon. Together, they created plays that stretched the bounds of their imaginations. Scraps of fabric became flowing robes, broomsticks shrunk into scepters, and paint brushes morphed into magic wands. Rather than admonishing the class defectors, Mrs. Haithcott asked them to cast the rest of the students in their stories and perform the plays for parents and other invited guests. And so it began! He continued to create every day after school while waiting for his mother, the school’s administrative assistant, to finish her workday. Kids who missed the bus (sometimes on purpose) were cast as actors in the months-long, serial playground dramas that picked up right where they left off from day to day. Currently, I. Savage lives in New York City with his family where he indulges in macaroni and cheese, red wine, hors d’oeuvres of every kind, sci-fi, nature, and all things Italy.

Doing Business As Kevin Templeton by Kiley Riley

This is a coming of age story that finds our main character trapped in a courtroom drama that lingers on the verge of a thriller. The story is helped along by the narrator Kiley Riley, Kevin’s foster sister.

Kiley and Kevin both started their lives off in separate orphanages, only later to be swept up by the foster system. Kevin spent his younger years escaping the abuse of one foster family after another and when he was on the run, he spent time on the streets as a “streetpreneur.” At least, that is what Kevin calls himself. Kiley only faired slightly better than Kevin, though she never had to live on the street. Life in the foster realm was no picnic until Kevin entered her life.

Their first introduction was short-lived because trouble has a way of catching up with Kevin, even if he is not the one instigating his legal woes. It was not until they both landed at Mabel’s home did they grow and become family. But Kevin’s propensity for trouble would often derail his plans to live a life apart from the one given him. These skirmishes with the law finally catapult him into a courtroom battle that could mean a long prison sentence for insurance fraud. Meanwhile, a scrupulous FBI agent believes Kevin is responsible for more than insurance fraud because members of Kevin’s foster family keep popping up dead, with only death certificates signed by Kevin as evidence.

Over the years Kiley has learned the ins and outs of law, becoming a lawyer herself but recognizing that she is too close to Kevin to represent him legally which means she has to rely on the talents of Artisan Caine to free Kevin from a retribution she believes he does not deserve.

The question: Who is Kevin Templeton?

Con Artist? Scammer? Street Hustler? Schemer? Or! Just maybe he is hiding something even darker, more sinister.

Then again, Kevin Templeton may just be trying to make things right. A good guy just trying to overcome a life of trouble after growing up in foster homes and, in between those foster homes, short stints living on the streets. Perhaps he is a successful businessman and philanthropist. Could it be true? That behind every dark cloud is a silver lining. Do we have to be labeled a product of our childhood?


Meet Arthur S. Newman

Arthur is a native of Culpeper, Virginia and still calls the small town home. However he has decided Heathsville, Virginia is the perfect place to harness the writer’s spirit within. With five children’s books written, illustrated and animated, he has also dabbled in writing short stories, novellas and informational material.

A business manager, IT professional and accidental librarian, Arthur’s ability to absorb subject matter gives him a rare talent to take on any profession he chooses. One long time New York curator labeled him a polymath because he has demonstrated a knowledge that spans many topics.

Can you see the positives in life where others only see the negatives? Really though, it boils down to the principle found in the atom. There are neutrons, protons, and electrons. Protons and Electrons will cancel each other out because of their positive and negative nature, but the Neutron is what keeps the nucleus of the atom intact.
