James Summers, Author



I find darkness in all things good, no matter what I examine, and then write about it. Through my use of plot twists I take the reader down a narrow path, until I skew what had earlier been described as normal.

I love writing - let my psychological horror shock you today!

What Lies In Wait For Thee?

James Summers First Responder book cover

First Responder

Centrally located between Malibu Creek and Topanga State Park is a lonely stretch of road the locals refer to as the "Mulholland Dieway". Here first responders rally to save those unfortunate enough to find themselves stranded and in need of assistance. For years Karen thought that section of road was unusually treacherous - tonight would be no different.

Nearby lies a creature with a heart as black as night. It has reinvented itself and moves through time unnoticed by most.. It feeds on those unfortunate and in dire straits. Immersing itself in the misfortune of others, it is a life saver for most, but for some, the last thing they will ever see.
