https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0127KSFUW

From the award-winning author of the Outlaw King series comes a harrowing supernatural adventure in the grand tradition of Stephen King's IT, Sam Raimi's Evil Dead, and the Netflix series Stranger Things.

Kids are going missing in the tiny hamlet of Blackfield, Georgia, and nobody knows why except for Robin, the homeless young woman that just rolled into town last night.

When she claims she knows who’s responsible, only 4th-grader Wayne Parkin and his schoolmates Pete, Amanda, and Juan believe her…but it takes a terrifying encounter with an interdimensional creature to spur them into action.

Robin proves to be a formidable monster-hunter with strange supernatural powers, but a tragic setback reveals a secret organization and a centuries-old conspiracy.
Can new friends and old enemies band together to save Blackfield from an unspeakable darkness?

So sad. We have watched The McLaughlin Group for decades. RIP good sir, and enjoy playing with your beloved dog, Oliver again.
A former Jesuit priest, McLaughlin turned to politics and television, profiting mightily from punditry.

Yes, I agree. He had been slouching in his chair pretty severely, and the last few weeks he was slurring his words, making me think he'd had a stroke. God rest his soul.

Story
Tagline
Author, humorist, lover of life
Introduction
I grew up in Independence, Missouri, and was strongly influenced by Harry Truman's straight talk and honest action. I have been a registered radiological technologist, pre-need counselor, webmaster, humor columnist, and blogger.

I am also a moderator for the Google Plus Community "Writers Discussion Group"  which proudly hit 10,000 members March 8, 2013 and topped 15,000 on October 22, 2013.

I am the author of three books,  a collection of essays, "Queen Klutz: The Misadventures of a Very Clumsy Woman," a paranormal mystery novel, "River of Possibilities," and a humorous self-help manual, "7 Ways You Screw Up Your Life (and how to unscrew it)"

I am published in the Examiner newspaper, 2006 Writer's Blog Anthology and as a featured columnist at USA Deep South and Southern Humorists. I live in rural Jackson County, Missouri.

I am a humorist, lover of life, author and caregiver for my disabled husband (stroke) and until her recent passing, my mother-in-law (Parkinson's). I love social media because I don't get to meet people in real-life due to my caregiving responsibilities.

I blog about laughter, bad luck, no luck, being a klutz, cars that hate me, life and love. I turned several of my blog posts and newspaper columns into my first book.  Then I lived the dream of writing a novel which is available at Amazon and Smashwords.  I am an early adopter of new technologies and wrote a third book - a humorous self-help manual with many friends from the early days of Twitter including Foreword by Chris Brogan. Contributors = Jeremiah Owyang, Becky McCray, Susan Reynolds, Terry Starbucker, Liz Strauss. I worked for Seth Godin when Squidoo was being launched, building pages to increase the site's viability.
