Synopsis for Born a Serial Killer (an excerpt from Born a Serial Killer)

Johnny Delmer was born in a cabin that should have been condemned in a small town known as Docerville. Johnny’s parents didn’t have much money to put food on the table for little Johnny to eat. Johnny’s father Jack worked at Doc’s gas station in Docerville whenever he wasn’t drunk. Johnny’s mother Susan worked as a waitress at Dugers Diner also located in Docerville, but only part-time because she had an alcohol problem as well. The Delmer’s didn’t own a car, so if they wanted to go to work or to the store they had to walk in the heat, rain or snow. Being that Johnny was just a little boy with dreams and visions like any little boy his age. All Johnny knew was the poor life he was given and had no idea most people owned cars or had running water in their homes. If little Johnny wanted a drink of water he would go to the well in the back of the cabin and if Johnny was lucky he would get enough water in his cup to wet his lips.
Johnny’s father had a short fuse and it didn’t take much to set him off. If little Johnny wanted to spend time with his daddy. His dad would kick him and tell him to go play with the chickens while he scolded his wife Susan about how awful her food tasted. Johnny didn’t like the way his father treated his mother. For instance, if Susan didn’t cook his food on time he would beat her or if he thought the food was too cold he would throw the plate of food at her. Jack would make comments like, “What kind of woman are you, you can’t cook or clean. I don’t know why I married you.”Jack would also call her a fat pig. Seeing the way Johnny’s father treated his mother was the early stages that would mold little Johnny Delmer into a Serial Killer.
As Johnny was reading the dirty newspaper, he came across an article on Ed Gein who was a Serial killer. Johnny was over taken with excitement and the more he read about Ed Gein’s killings the more excited Johnny got. Johnny said, “I want to be just like this man Ed Gein. We have something in common, we both enjoy killing. But I have never killed another human being. Maybe someday I will kill another human being. Who knows maybe I’ll be the next Ed Gein?”

My Review for Born a Serial Killer

Finally a book that is sick and twisted! I have read a lot of books, and some are morbid, but nothing like Born a Serial Killer, and let me tell you, I want to read his other short stories! I have become obsessed! If you like mutilation, serial killers, blood, gore, and more, you would love this and I am sure his other works!

About Apryl Baker

“So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values and morals. I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there’s always someone to tell your mama you were seen kissing a particular boy on a particular day just a little too long. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was a romance titled “Lord Margrave’s Deception.” I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. As I grew up, I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.

Now, I live Huntersville, NC where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then drive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce . . . Lol

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.”

Synopsis for The Ghost Files

For sixteen year old Mattie Hathaway, this is her normal everyday routine. She’s been able to see ghosts since her mother tried to murder her when she was five years old. No way does she want anyone to know she can talk to spooks. Being a foster kid is hard enough without being labeled a freak too. 

Normally, she just ignores the ghosts and they go away. That is until she see’s the ghost of her foster sister… Sally. 

Everyone thinks Sally’s just another runaway, but Mattie knows the truth—she’s dead. Murdered. Mattie feels like she has to help Sally, but she can’t do it alone. Against her better judgment, she teams up with a young policeman, Officer Dan, and together they set out to discover the real truth behind Sally’s disappearance. 

Only to find out she’s dealing with a much bigger problem, a serial killer, and she may be the next victim… 

Will Mattie be able to find out the truth before the killer finds her?

My Review of The Ghost Files

I absolutely loved this book. Another first for me. Usually I go for the vampires, werewolves, witches type of books, but this book really got me thinking. The entire time, wondering who the murderer could be. Just when you thought you got the killer, trust me, you got it wrong. I adored Officer Dan, a rookie cop who is a big softie. I loved one of the ghosts you will be introduced to at the end, well kind of at the end. I will be getting the rest of the books in this series as I have to know what goes on in this series.
