Back in the day, I wanted to be the next Stephen King. I’m sharing a little of that work here, warts and all. At the top of the site, you can find a button that says “Hidden House.” Click it to read a fun little horror story that hopefully scares the pants off you. Or go here.
The house in the story is real … the circumstances around it are real, too. There was really a murder, even though I’ve changed the dates some. It was a rite of passage for kids in my neighborhood to visit the house. The story is one of the most graphically violent I’ve ever written, so be forewarned. It’s a horror/fantasy story, so it may not be your cup of tea. If not, I’ll understand. but I hope you read it, and I hope the gooseflesh rises along your arms and you feel the hairs on the back of your neck prickle as you read the final line.
