Allen Dusk is an award-winning author of dark fiction and poetry. His debut novel Shady Palms is a gritty urban tale splattered with carnage.
Allen lives in San Diego, CA with his wife and daughter. Other than writing, his favorite pastimes include photography, geocaching, lusting over old horror movies, and researching supernatural folklore.
A sleazy motel, burrowed on the edge of town, is haunted by rumors of dead hookers found between mattresses and peep holes drilled through walls.
When Special Agent Daniels targets the motel during an investigation, the nefarious owner, Sanjay, must scramble to conceal evidence of his own dark deeds. Just when he believes things can't get any worse, motel guests begin to vanish without a trace.
Can Sanjay discover the truth behind the phenomena threatening his motel before the Feds get suspicious, or does he risk exposing his own sordid enterprises to seek help from the outside?
Why don't you book a room for the night and find out? At these bargain rates you'll be lucky if you only find dirty sheets and a few skeletons in the closet.
Welcome to the Shady Palms Motel. Check out is at 11, if you live that long...
