To say Stephen King is a genius and a legend in the horror world is an understatement.

The story follows a family through the generation, with each… Continue reading #BookReview The Father by Brett Williams

  The Mountain Man's Bride was an excellent sequel that is a definite must read! I really like this series - it feels so simple and smooth, despite having epic plot lines. I'm able to easily get lost in Gary's words and feel like it's some epic crime television show playing in my head. Gary… Continue reading #BookReview The Mountain Man’s Bride by Gary Corbin
