Twelve-year-old Joe Sebastian feels depressingly average. His older brother Cameron, a football star, gets all his parents’ attention while Joe’s left babysitting his Van Helsing-obsessed little brother.
Maybe that’s why Joe likes Cole. Cole has no family responsibilities; he’s a runaway living in the local cemetery, surrounded by iron crosses forged by Joe’s great-great-grandfather, once a blacksmith for the sleepy harbor town of Majestic Hollow.
Cole has his own reasons for befriending Joe and social outcast Vidonia Finkle, reasons forced on him by Belzore, the powerful being known in local folklore as The Boogey Man. Belzore wants nothing less than total control of Majestic Hollow. With an army of vampires, werewolves, and witches at his command, he should be able to take over easily. So why does Belzore fear Joe and Vi, or need to manipulate an unwilling Cole?
The answer lies in a secret buried in both the town’s past and the cemetery—if Joe and his friends can uncover it. More than Majestic Hollow is at stake. If the town falls, Belzore’s infernal minions will infest all of North America. Joe’s going to have to be much more than average to stop this invasion.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
What makes writing in my genre different than writing in others is that I have to do a lot of remembering. Since I write middle school and young adult books, I have to see things through their eyes and not an adult’s. Having children of my own helps!
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
I am an aspiring writer! I queried and was rejected until I felt like giving up. But…I didn’t. That’s the trick. Don’t quit!
Find what you love and do it. Don’t let others’ opinions decide your fate.
Read. Write. Read. Write!!!
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My oldest sister, sadly died at the age of three before I was even born. I understandably made many visits to the cemetery with my mother and other siblings. There I would walk about, looking at the grave markers wondering about the dashes in between the dates.
My great grandfather was a blacksmith who made the iron crosses in the oldest part of the cemetery in the back corner. Though there were no mausoleums there, they always frightened me and I was curious about what was inside.
