Introducing You to Jaxon Slater from Dark Side of Purgatory and a Giveaway

Let me tell you a bit about Jaxon Slater. He’s the bad boy you had a crush on in high school- maybe a little later. He’s got that crazy, crooked grin that makes your heart skip a beat- when it’s directed at you- and a wink that causes you to blush- even when you don’t want to. He’s the guy you’d like to date- or spend the night with- but he’s certainly not marriage material!

He’s got a great sense of humor and you like him fine sober. Trouble is, he doesn’t seem to like himself much that way. Figures he’s better off after he takes a drink---or two..or more.

He’s the guy, that when you hear sirens from far away, your first thought is, “Hope it’s not Slater.”

Come on, go with Jaxon Slater somewhere you’ve never been before…Purgatory. Maybe you can help him stay on the right path- help him redeem himself. You won’t regret it.

Dark forces shadow his path.

Book Trailer

Long blurb

Everyone knows Jaxon Slater. He’s the life-of-the-party guy. He’s the fun guy we want to invite to our out door barbeques but not marry our daughters. He is our nephew, the next-door neighbor who drinks too much, a friend of a friend that overdosed on heroin. He’s the class clown in high school that was always in trouble from drinking and driving.

Jaxon Slater has ‘pushed the envelope’ and tried to scam his way through most of his life. He’s charismatic and good-looking. Many things come easy to Jaxon. Sobriety isn’t one of them. He’s tried staying clean numerous times but always falls back into relapse, using one more time. His long time sponsor had warned him plenty... His last use of heroin landed him dead-in Purgatory.

Jaxon believes he is having a terrible nightmare until he finds an old friend and recalls how he died. Reality sets in and Jaxon begins to learn the rules of the strange land. He runs into a mean bunch of guys, an unlikely guide and... possible redemption. His quest is to find a certain young woman and steer her away from the path of Destruction that killed him. In doing so, he will need to face the wreckage of his past. Old temptations linger and Dark forces shadow his path. Jaxon has no idea his journey will take him to an abyss of his deepest fears.

About the Author:

I live in a small town in Washington State near the Cascade Mountains. I have worked in the Human Services field for thirty years, mainly in chemical addition. My writing genre has taken me to different arenas: suspense- One Step Ahead Of Danger, contemporary-Life Choices and now, with Dark Side Of Purgatory, the paranormal.

Writing has always been a great passion of mine and seeing my books published in the last few years, has certainly made my dreams come true.

I hope that you, the reader, will share your thoughts about this book with me. Please drop me a line at:
