I am a writer of drama, suspense, and horror fiction -- all genres I looked to while writing my debut novel, SHINER. I am a regular guy who lives and works in Michigan and in my spare time, I am mostly busy reading and writing weird stories, playing poker (all in!), and cooking. I also hang out Twitter: @theafterburn, and blogging at andrewconlon.wordpress.com.
A paranormal thriller about a teenager at war with the evil infecting his home.The dead don't always stay down!
Ben Walters wishes his Dad would stay dead, but no one will let him rest. The bullies at school love to make fun of Dad's death, and at home, Ben's bereaved Mom has started to believe that haunting events within the house are messages from her deceased husband.
Ben finds peace and purpose in his job as a paperboy and enjoys the company of a few loyal friends, including the Killers, a local gang, but the growing problems at home soon overshadow everything good in his life.
When chaos strikes the Walters household, Ben blames his otherworldy troubles on Mom and her drunken delusions, but after being forced to relive horrific childhood cruelties, he comes face-to-face with a toxic evil and the shocking truth about his family.
