James Summers – Official Author Site


I describe the horror around us that is ever-present in our daily life. It was there yesterday though no one noticed. It is there now, although it will not make tonight’s news. It will be there tomorrow, just out of sight, if you are lucky. This horror has been occurring year after year, ever since the first man picked up a rock as a means to an end.

Loose your mind and allow it to race as James clues you in to what your neighbors, your friends, your family, total strangers do in the dark, just outside the edge of comprehension, of reality. It’s bad enough to make you turn away. It’s bad enough to plead ignorance and hide from. It’s bad enough to make you wonder why, or how it could happen. Deep down inside you want to know; deep down inside you don’t.

Let my horror shock you today. Join me as I bring these things to light, showing you what some of us already know. Interested in self-esteem, the cause of the cause, first responders, good and bad spirits, vampires, physical therapy recovery, true revenge, the bad guy winning, gold mining in California, serial killers, mental illness, sexual predators, vacations that go south, the end that justifies the means, doing good at all costs, detective crime stories, or everyday life gone bad, then seek me out


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. Keeping you on your toes and on the edge of your seat are of paramount importance to me; they are the byproducts of my horror. Sexual tension, social situations, and psychological horror are all intertwined with happiness, for a spell.

I have yet to write fantasy or historical pieces, choosing instead to focus on psychosocial horror. I have started nine projects, three of which have been published, two are being edited, a sixth is nearly finished, with the seventh nearing completion of the outlining stage. Leaving two more with detailed notes and in need of organization, it’s easy to get lost in day-to-day life. Please read about my novels on their websites, my author site, and on Facebook. To make a longer story shorter, I love writing. Let my psychological horror shock you today.

Please enjoy this site and open every door you can!





Truth can be skewed. Truth can be partial, lacking, wanting; truth is only part of the whole solution – James H Summers.
