Nightmare Inspires Local Author’s Horror Tale

    I read Tony Thompson’s book. It was very well written. It kept your interest from beginning to end. I usually just skim a book but this book I read every word. Loved it. Highly recommended.

    Tony’s tale is gripping and reads very fast. Perhaps because we taught together and are friends, I really got caught up in the story very quickly. It is his first Great American Novel with three more in his mind and a second already underway. I encourage you to buy and begin reading his Stephen King-esque horror tale.
