An ancient evil stalks a small secluded community in middle Tennessee. Will the twelve families who call Silent Glade home survive the evil that is Mary Sue?

Mary Sue From Across the Street is a living novel. That is to say, it allows the reader to follow along with me as the tale of Mary Sue and the neighborhood she haunts comes to life. Even though I have a basic outline for each book, the specifics of the story are being created live every few weeks. I am often as surprised as you where the story takes us.

Mary Sue from Across the Street – Book 1: The Madman was completed in October of 2020 and available to read if you follow the link below. Mary Sue from Across the Street – Book 2: The Zealot will be coming in early 2022, hopefully. I am deep in the horrors of the Death Fish at the moment and time is short; but fear not, Mary Sue will be back. Her machinations in Silent Glade are far from finished.
