A hidden mystery in The Shatter Point

The Shatter Point imageA musical mystery lurks in the heart of The Shatter Point. In different ways, the four books I’ve published highlight the intersection of music and the written word. Song of Fire explored the role of music in our lives through a series of personal vignettes and essays complemented by twelve songs. Some stories contained an embedded link to a specific song, available either as a download or stream. The songs could also be purchased separately as an album. I did the same thing with the collection of five horror stories, A Book of Hauntings. A specific song expressed each of the stories. Elliptical: The Music of Meshell Ndegeocello attempted to analyze the elements in her lyrics and music that make her music so compelling.

A Mystery Within a Mystery

With the recent release of The Shatter Point, I’ve taken a unique, new approach. Some of the novel’s characters include a young musician and his band. The band’s experiences affect the story line. Other music-related matters pop up in the plot. All of that is obvious. But a hidden mystery lurks in the novel, which amplifies the novel’s theme of reality versus fiction. Who will be the first reader to figure out this mystery?


Jada Mercer is used to getting her way, and she loves danger. When she meets Asher Williams, a sensitive musician in a band, she pressures him to prove himself through the rigors of an extreme haunt known as Horror Place. At the same time, the haunt’s owners, Phil and Donna Woods, are locked in an escalating feud with neighbor Ruth Littleton. The terrifying consequences unfold step by step as the characters are pushed beyond the breaking point. Weaving layers of truth and fiction, the story challenges our sense of reality with unexpected twists and turns. In a world haunted by the ghosts of the past, how do we know what is real and what is not? After the shatter point, the horror will become all too real.
