Authors I Have Discovered - Part II

My second list of 10 favorite authors that I have discovered in the last four years in no particular order are as follows: 

Ambrose Ibsen 

Wow! What to say about this author except he can write some awesome ghost stories that can grab the reader and weave a spell around them keeping them entranced into his world. My first book by him was A House By The Sea and I just loved the book so much that I gave it five stars and it went straight on my favorites shelf. Since then I have read quite a few of his books and I am always impressed at how he can weave a story! 

Favorite books are:

A House By The Sea
Stirrings in the Black House
Night Society

Brian Moreland 
(Horror/Suspense Thrillers)

Another horror author that can grab the reader from basically the first chapter in a book and keep them pinned in their chair for a very long time! My first book was Dead of Winter which was excellent and went on my favorites shelf! From that point on after reading that book I was searching for whatever else I could find by this author and believe me I found some that are also now favorites as well! 

Favorite books are:

Dead of Winter
Witching House
The Devil's Woods

Glenn Rolfe

So if you want to take a ride into the mind of this author, you better strap in from head to toe as it will soon be a ride you will not forget! My first book was Chasing Ghosts and all I can say is I wish I had been able to buy a gore suit as it was needed for this read! This book ended up on my favorites shelf as I went pursuing more books by this author! 

Favorite books are:

Chasing Ghosts
Land of Bones

Hunter Shea 

So if you like "creature feature" books then this is the author you will want to pursue to the ends of the earth!!! I kid you not!  Author, Hunter Shea can take an ordinary creature and turn them into your most twisted nightmare! This author has never disappointed me on any of his "creature" books and I am always ready to track down whatever he has "crawling or creeping" around out there! 

Favorite books are:

Montauk Monster
Jurassic Florida

Brian Keene

Another horror author that I had never heard about until I stepped into his book "Dark Hollow" and when I did that there really was no turning back! I was like captured right away from the first chapter and the atmosphere of the book just was downright creepy! I literally wanted to stay in that world the author created and did not want to put the book down! 

Favorite books are:

Dark Hollow
Ghost Walk

Anna Willett
(Suspense and Psychological Thrillers)

My first book by author, Anna Willett was Backwoods Ripper which I read in November 2016 and what a "rip roaring" good time it was too as I was grabbed right away from the first chapter as the author builds up the suspense of the story and I completely became involved in the story so much that I just could not put the book down! Fast paced and intrigue dashes through the book to the point where I was moving through the book at a high rate of speed. There was no slowing down as the storyline just intensified! I have read one more book by this author, but I have four more on my kindle waiting to be read! 

Favorite books are:

Backwoods Ripper 
Retribution Ridge

John Everson 

My first book by author, John Everson just grabbed me and thew me into a world of terror. I read his book The Covenant back in 2017 which is really part of trilogy that I have yet to finish (I do own the rest of the books in the trilogy) and I was just amazed at how quick I became involved in the storyline. The author is able to grab the reader and bring them into his world without ever letting them go. The second book I read by the author sent me onto another terror filled ride as I read his book The House By The Cemetery and wow what a bloody fest that turned out to be. Since then I have been grabbing what I can by this author and now I have a few sitting on my kindle that I need to read! 

Favorite books are:

The Covenant
The House By The Cemetery
The 13th

Amy Cross

When I first read this author I wasn't expecting that I would be buying her books at a high rate of speed as the more she released the more I would buy! My first book by her was Blood House and the cover of the book was what drew me in as it is "blood red" which I couldn't help myself as I had to delve into the story to see what it was all about! The book wasn't long - a short story at 128 pages, but I read it literally within 24 hours as I was not able to put it down! Since then I have over 100+ books of her on my kindle as she is constantly writing books! I haven't read all of those 100+ books as I am slowly making my way through them, but the more she puts out the more I grab so I never get caught up! 

Favorite books are:

Blood House
The Ghosts of Lakeforth Hotel
The Ghost of Molly Holt

David Bernstein

My first book by this author was Relic of Death which was a fast paced book and literally ensnared me where I could not put the book down! There were so many twists in the book that I did not know where it was going to take me! But I loved it so much that I finished the book within 24 hours as I just could not break away from it as I had to keep reading to see how it all ended! The author has a writing style that just pulls the reader into his world and makes the reader feel that they are part of the story. I have a few more of his books on my kindle waiting to be read. 

Favorite books are:

Relic of Death
Witch Island

Iain Rob Wright
(Horror/Science Fiction/Thrillers)

My first book by this author ended up being a five star read as what a blood fest I entered into when I became involved in the story! I was surprised that I was brought into the mind of the author quick and transported into the horrific imagination of the author! The book was Housemates and it was one of those books that you get so involved in that you just do not want to go to sleep! I stayed up "nights" reading the book as there was no way I was going to be able to sleep till I found out what laid within the "next chapter"! I didn't sleep much when reading this book I can tell you that right now! :)  I have a few more by this author waiting to be read on my kindle! 

Favorite books are:

The Picture Frame
