A fast read, the story moves pretty quickly. There are some places where the language feels disjointed and forces you to read it twice- typically dialogue or inner-thoughts. The ending comes very abruptly and with no real explanation

Biography 


"A welcome new entry into the world of supernatural fiction."--Scott Nicholson, author of The Red Church

Horror aficionado, lover of Halloween, ebook author of HUDSON HOUSE, CALAMITY, THE HOUSE ON MANGLE LANE, BLOOD MOUNTAIN, and now stepping into the world of thriller romance with RAMPAGE. Check out the latest addition of short stories, SOMETIMES THERE ARE MONSTERS.

J.T. Warren was born on Halloween, a few months after his mother saw Jaws at the movies. His affinity for horror can be traced to an early age when he built a coffin out of cardboard and pretended to be a corpse, much to the concern of his parents. He can still be found in a coffin on Halloween when he gets into the spirit of the season. He is a public school teacher and has successfully lured thousands of students into literary waters through works of horror. He hopes his writing will further encourage everyone to discover the wonder (and dread) found in the written word.

J.T. Warren is the pseudonym for an even creepier guy.
